  • We had a lovely stay in Madrid. Anas apartment is perfect if you're staying for 3-4 days in the city. Almost everything is within a walking distance - we never took the metro and it's also only 10 minutes away from Puerta de Atocha train station. The barrio is quite lively and alternative with lots of bars and restaurants. The only disadvantage is the small size of the apartment and the noisy neighbors (but that was probably just bad luck). But it's defo enough for two people. Ana and Juan were really helpful and kind and we can only recommend staying in their apartment.

    Hi Hannah, thanks for the review. I'm really sorry about the neighbours, if you could send me and email telling me more about what happened, it would be nice and we could solve the problem out and try that it doesn't happen again. We didn't have this problem before. Nevermind, We hope you had a good time in Madrid!!

  • Small but almost perfectly formed apartment, best possible use made of the space available. Our own microwave is very simple so a complicated microwave with no instruction book was a challenge. In the nature of the block, if people talk on their balconies into the night it is unfortunate, only one night of 6 luckily.

    Very good location if you like to walk to the centre. Very convenient all hours supermarket. Very happy. The only one of the three apartments we took where cooking was practical.

  • Our stay in Ana's apartment was very good. As stated in the description, although it gets really hot outside in summer (we were there in 38 degrees) it still manages to remain cooler inside.
    All facilities in the apartment were easy to use and functional.
    Location is perfect and is within walking distance from most, if not all tourist attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • We spent some 5 days early in july in Ana's apartment. The location of the apartment is perfect. Most things you want to see you don't need to take the metro. The apartment is self has everything you need and it's true that although outside it was 37 degrees inside it was cool. Communication with Ana was fast and easy.
    If we want make some other remarks. The apartment is less bright then the pictures show, first thing when you come in is put the light on.But this is not of great importance since you are out most of the time. Further we didn't sleep very well, because there was quit some noise from the neighbours, at night and early in the morning. Over all we are positive about our stay in Ana's apartment.

  • Tal como aparece en las fotos, el sitio es acogedor, descansamos muy bien y la atención de Ana excelente, siempre atenta a que nada nos faltara, que estuviéramos cómodos. Cerca de todo, en un sitio donde uno puede salir hacia cualquier punto interesante de Madrid histórico y queda cerca.
    MUY agradecidos con Ana.

  • Nous avons aimé notre attente et notre rencontre mutuelle a votre appartement; Le plaisir d'être rapidement dans "l'ambiance madrilène" avec vous en allant partager un verre.
    Moment sympathique! Votre appartement est à recommander pour visiter Madrid à pied, et visiter les musées Le Prado, Thyssen,
    Avons aimé la librairie "Central' , avons trouvé des livres aussi en français. Merci Ana pour votre accueil.

  • Llegamos al apartamengo de Ana para una sola noche después de un agotador día. El apartamento es tal cual lo ves, chiquitín y cuco.
    Una de las cosas que más valoraba era la limpieza, y estaba todo perfecto.

    El edificio es fresquito, lo cual se agradece para el verano y sin aire acondicionado.
    Para los tiquismiquis con los ruidos a la hora de dormir, aconsejo tapones para los oidos.

    Si necesito otra vez ir a la misma zona, repetiré seguro.
