  • Gemma is the most gracious host we have met thus far using AirBnB! She it's very gracious to show us around the neighborhood. She is extremely personable and her flat was wonderful - very cozy! We highly recommend her flat!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Gemma's apartment very much. The neighborhood was great. It was not at all touristy, but was within walking distance of most tourist sites. I liked having the Rastra flea market there Sunday morning. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable.

  • We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Gemma's flat! Gemma is delightful!! She was waiting for us at the airport where we received a warm greeting. The flat had everything we needed although our family of four had to be creative when showering in order not to run out of hot water. During day six, we came back to the flat to find water all over the kitchen floor. Water was leaking through the ceiling. Gemma was on it!! She apologized and was at the flat the next day to meet with the insurance rep. This small problem did not impact our stay at all.
    The flat is located a short 10 minute walk from Plaza Mayor, and you'll wake up on Sunday morning to find El Rastro on the street below.
    Be prepared for street noises -- just not accustomed to trash pickup at midnight and children playing in streets until 11:30 pm. But, that is Madrid and one of the reasons we enjoyed the culture.
    I highly recommend staying at this flat!! Thanks, Gemma!

  • I had an amazing trip to Madrid, where I was based in Gemma's apartment for 12 days. The location was perfect. I walked everywhere, and yet, I was outside of the most touristy regions, shopping in the local market and having breakfast in the neighborhood. The apartment is very comfortable, with two double beds of good quality. I will return. Gemma -- along with all of the warm, patient, and generous people of Madrid I met -- made the trip even more outstanding. Many many thanks. I will stay here again.

  • We would recommend Gemma's place to everyone! - it has everything you need and is super comfortable and a beautiful place to relax in. The area is pretty quiet but the metro is close as are excellent food markets and heaps of little grocery shops that are open really late if you need. Gemma is a really lovely host.

  • Gemma's house is great! It is near metro station. She is a nice and kind host. The kitchen is clean and filled with many equipments. We had our Christmas Eve's dinner at her house.

  • Our flight arrived early the day we arrived in Madrid (before the previous occupants had vacated the apartment) but still Gemma looked after us, recommending a good cafe nearby, having picked us up from the airport. The flat was very clean and has everything you need and feels really homely. Best of all was being there on a Sunday when El Rastro was on - Madrid's biggest flea market right on the street outside. Then there are all the antique shops nearby too. If you're there on a Sunday dedicate it to the shops and the market around the apartment. Also go to El Capricho Extremeno for a take-out lunch (only open Sundays) and try the razor clams at Bar Cruz up the road. You're about a 10 minute walk from the modern art museum (where Guernica is) and about the same from Placa Mayor. Great spot to wander the streets from. I could easily go on... and on... let's just say highly recommended. Perfect for a couple or a family with 2 young children like us.

  • A lovely appartment to come back to after a day sightseeing! Everything you could want to have a relaxing stay in Madrid. Gemma is lovely and picked us up at the airport making everything easy from the word go! We would thoroughly recommend staying there.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Madrid! The apartment is well located, clean and we loved the way how Gemma welcomed us. When we will come back to Madrid we will return to this apartment with no doubts!
