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 2 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.

Cosy little apartment. Mauricio was a most kind and welcoming host and his girlfriend was very nice as well. Thank you for a lovely stay! :)
Room was fine, the location is perfect in the center of Madrid near loads of great tapas bars. We were made to feel exceptionally welcome by Mauricio and family. Definitely recommended.
Très bon séjour. L'appartement est très bien situé,en plein coeur de Madrid, tout est accessible à pied. Il y a tous les équipements nécessaires. Mauricio est un hôte très accueillant et sympathique. A recommander.
The apartment is located in the heart of Madrid in a wonderful location. The room itself looks very different than I expected based on the pictures (it's smaller and has other items in it). It felt pretty cramped, especially with the small bunkbed that's also in the room. Mauricio's girlfriend was at the apartment when I arrived and barely greeted me and remained pretty hostile the two nights I stayed. I definitely felt like an uninvited guest. However, Mauricio himself was friendly and helpful, even though he knew very little English. If you just want a place to put your head and be in a great location, this is it. But if you want to feel comfortable in the apartment, be able to use the kitchen or have an authentic AirBnb experience, then I would recommend that you stay elsewhere.
The room is not equipped as specified in the pictures. As written by other guests before, Mauricio put in a bunk-bed to accomodate more people at the same time. This gives the room a far more stuffed feeling than it has on the images. Also, the mattress might use an update.
Apart from that, the room as well as the shared bathroom were clean and equipped with all that is necessary. Use of the kitchen was granted, too.
I can also confirm, that the contact with Mauricio is far more easier than with his partner. She was not hostile, though, rather incommunicative. Since I spent my time in the wonderful city, this did not bother me, though. Mauricio on the other hand was a great help with directions before my arrival.
Mauricios apartment is really well situated in the "Barrio de las lettras", with Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor within easy walking distance. Also access to a main Metro-Line is nearby.
I'd agree with the previous report, that this is more a place to stay for sleeping, for independent travelers rather then for creating contact with "Natives" and having someone to bond.
Mauricio and his wife, Nancy were quick to respond to our request and remained so through email until our arrival. Nancy waited up to receive us, having arrived late in the evening and was very gracious. Their location was close to the metro, restaurants, tapas bars, etc., making it very easy to get around. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and quiet. There was quite active nightlife in the neighborhood when we arrived and anticipated that it may be noisy, yet once inside, it was quiet and easy to sleep. We would recommend Mauricio and Nancy's airbnb accommodation to anyone.
Wonderful location. Mauricio is a very pleasant person.

I had a great weekend in Madrid - thanks to the cosy, relatively small but clean and functionable room with the lovely caring host Nancy!
The location and security are exceptional. Mauricio and his lovely partner, Nancy, are two of the most delightful people you will ever meet.
Madrid exceeded our expectations and our hosts made it all the better. Everything we wanted to see was in walking distance even for us over 60's.
Please be mindful hat this is their principal residence and that you must expect to share amenities, but that was no problem for us.
We feel that we have made good friends and that we hope we will be able to return someday.
Mauricio's is centrally located, close to Sol with nearest station being only 5 mins away on foot. It was clean and had all the basic necessities. Both he and his girlfriend were very hospitable.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
