The apartment is located in the center of Madrid in the neighborhood called "Barrio de las Letras" or "Neighborhood of the Letters". Nearby you can find the infamous "Plaza Santa Ana" on Calle de las Huertas.
The room is very comfortable with 1 beds, a closet drawer, and a glass door that leads to the balcony. The public transport system is very well connected since it is located 6 minutes away from Sol Station. In this station you can find connections to most Metro lines as well as Cercanias Renfe (train system) and many Bus routes as well. The area from Plaza Sol to Gran Via is dotted with many clothing stores, restaurants, cinemas, and even theaters making it a great spot to visit.
Another great place to visit is Parque del Retiro which is a quick 12 minute walk away. Madrid has many museums but the big three that constitute the so-called Paseo del Arte are Museo del Prado, Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum of Art. (some of these are free during certain times of the day; visit their websites for info) I have a bike for your stay.
Maps will be provided on arrival.
The price for this room is for one person. If a second person is included an extra 10€ will be charged.

Como norma de la casa que la salida de los huespedes sean a las 11.00 am, y la llegada a las 12.00 am . Lo otro Importante es que el equipaje puedes dejarlo maximo 3 dias en casa si es que es realmente necesario dejarlo en mi, ya que realmente los espacios libres de una casa son muy importante.-
Great location and price! Easy to find and convenient. Clean and functional, but does not look like the picture at all (small room, no access to kitchen or living room) and bring your own towel.
Mauricio's place was a 20 minute walk from the train station. It was not difficult to locate the apartment. The neighborhood has great cafe's and bars. It is a central location, as you can walk to all the sights within 20 minutes. He had a map available for me, which was helpful. He was accomodating and helpful. I stayed three nights, and spent most of them wandering Madrid.
Me sentí muy agusto en la casa. La relación calidad precio es bastante buena, dada la buena localización (en pleno centro al lado de Atocha). Repetiría
I had an excellent time staying at Mauricio's. When I first arrived he had a map for exploring Madrid and a PS2 prepared in my room. I didn't need the PS2 at all, but his forethought was definitely appreciated. I had also forgotten to pack a travel adaptor for my laptop, and although Mauricio didn't have a travel adaptor, he did dig up a cable that fit my power brick and so I was able to keep my laptop charged with no problem.
The room is a little bit smaller than what it may appear in the photo but it is perfectly adequate for living a few days in. The room is separated from the main living area with two sets of doors so it is very quiet.
The location cannot be better, most of the major landmarks such as Palacio Real de Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado and Parque del Retiro are a 10-15 min walk away. Also, walk outside the door and you are practically right on Calle de La Huertas, a pedestrian-only street full of bars/restaurants.
Mauricio me recibió excelente, tuvo un trato más que amigable. La descripción y las fotos del departamento son tal cual . El departamento esta muy bien ubicado a pocas cuadras de la estación sol y de plaza mayor. Más que recomendado!!!
MAURICIO Y NANCY, SON EXCELENTES ANFITRIONES, PONEN SU PISO A DISPOSICIÓN DEL HUÉSPED PARA TENER UNA MUY BUENA EXPERIENCIA EN MADRID, SE PREOCUPAN POR TENER A DISPOSICIÓN LOS MAPAS, TELÉFONOS Y ACCESO A LOS SITIOS DE INTERÉS QUE OFRECE EL SECTOR EN EL CUAL SE ENCUENTRA UBICADO EL PISO.
FUE UNA EXCELENTE EXPERIENCIA.
Hola me gusta mucho viajar y conocer la comidas tipicas de los 5 continentes y cuando se esta en un pais extranjero me llama mucho la atencion ir a Zoo y esas cosas. Tengo experiencia como anfitrion y me gusta atender lo mas correcto posible a la jente que llega a nuestra casa. Trato en lo posible de que se sientan en casa como a mi me gustaria que lo hicieran.-
