Our apartment is located on Calle Barcelona 7, a small pedestrian street only a few meters from the famous Puerta del Sol.
It is a charming, one-bedroom apartment with a private, exterior terrace that fits four adults. It is located in a historic, but renovated, elevator building, whose modern décor is harmonious with the building’s old features (exposed beams, wooden stairs, angled ceilings…).
The main bedroom has a double bed and a spacious built-in closet. The living room has a double sofa bed and enjoys fantastic views of Madrid from its private exterior terrace. Both the bathroom and the kitchen, which are accessed through the living room, are completely equipped.
The Puerta del Sol is a Madrid’s main tourist reference point and a must-see during your stay in Madrid. In fact, this is the ideal departure point for any walk around the city, visit to monuments and museums, or shopping in Madrid’s commercial district any day of the year.
The apartment is located in an extremely central area that is easily accessible and has a wide variety of commercial and cultural activity in its immediate vicinity. The neighborhood is one of Madrileños’ favorites for "tapas" and is famous for its bars and restaurants, and night life, all of which you will find only steps away.
The closest metro station is Sol, which is a stone’s throw from the apartment. You will also find two nearby public parking garages: Jacinto Benavente and Santa Ana.

Alfanso and Guillermo's apartment is great and loved the large balcony! It is close to the tapas bar stretch of the Calle Baja, near the Mercado San Miguel and Plaza Mayor and easy waling - 15 minutes to the Chueca district and the museums - Sofia Reina, Prado, etc.
Also on the block are several bars and restaurants to grab lunch or a drink.
We had an issue with getting the wifi to work when we arrived but they made sure it was taken care of immediately which was great - not all hosts would bother.
Would definitely recommend and stay again. Thanks for everything.
Great little apartment right in heart of great restaurant strip. Everything we needed. Great hosts and highly recommend.
This place really is a gem! Located 3 mins walk from Sol metro station, you are in walking distance to everything. The apartment has enough space for four people sharing -beds are really comfy. The communication before arrival was great. We got loads of tips of how to get to the apartment from the airport, restaurant & bar recommendations. Elisa was waiting for us when we arrived with the keys and even let us stay later on day of check out. Thank you for a great stay. We loved it!
Die Wohnung von Alfonso&Guillermo liegt absolut perfekt inmitten dem Barrio de las Letras in einer gepflegten Liegenschaft, ist hell, schön, sehr sauber, geräumig, perfekt eingerichtet, alles funktioniert, schöne Dachterrasse, schnelles Wifi. Nur einige Schritte zur Metrostation, aber auch zur Oper, Museen, Kino, wunderbaren Restaurants, Tapasbars, Mercado San Miquel. Für Frühaufsteher gibt es nur über die Strasse eine Fühstücksbar! Sehr freundliche, verlässliche, einfache, rasche und präzise Kommunikation mit Alfonso& Guillermo, aber auch mit Elisa, der guten Fee, die uns herzlich empfangen hat. Thanks a lot, we will be back!
Although this apartment is quite small, it is very well distributed and feels homely, with a large kitchen. I stayed during the winter and it was warm and comfortable. Very central, and quiet in the evenings. Host was welcoming and helpful. Very recommendable. Terrace is very nice.
Great location, well equipped apartment, beautiful terrace, very pleasant atmosphere.
Quick communication with hosts.
It is of course noisy at night, but the apartment is in the heart of Madrid so it was expected, and you will get used to the noise easily.
We called Elisa, our hostess, from the airport. She was at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was clean & met our needs. Nice kitchen, bathroom, living area & bedroom. There were a few guidebooks that we enjoyed using. The apartment information was contained in a very helpful handbook with a map. The neighborhood was noisy but we were able to sleep well on the fourth floor. The neighborhood seemed alive with activities & gave us the overall "Madrid City Experience" that we wanted.

About the Host, Alfonso & Guillermo
Hi! I'm Alfonso
I started renting my apartment in Madrid years ago and I discovered a vocation: to try to make people feel like home. I've travelled a lot and I'd love that you feel that nice feeling of being like home in a strange place.
So I created micasaisyourhouse and now I manage apartments in Madrid (where I'm from) and Seville (where I live). I hope you enjoy your stay with us!
See you soon!
Alfonso y Guillermo
