Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Alejandro was a great host, came under the rain to pick us up at the subway station and explained everything we needed to know about the apartment and about the neighborhood. The apartment is not in downtown Madrid, but it's not far.

    Alejandro fue un gran anfitrión, vino a recogernos a la estación del metro bajo la lluvia y nos explicó todo lo que necesitábamos saber sobre el apartamento y el vecindario. El apartamento no está en el centro de Madrid, pero está relativamente cerca.

  • The place is nice and has all the coveniences needed . It is not too far from the center of Madrid and there are many supermarkets , pharmacies and restaurants nearby. There is also an actual market not too far. The metro is also not too far away on a very convenient line.
    Alejandro is a very good host. He was very patient with us as a our flight actual arrived a day and a half late. He even came by one evening and showed us around the neighborhood and had a few beers with us!!!

  • Excellent host, nice cozy artsy place, and easily accessible location! There's everything you need in the house. The speedy WiFi was a big plus! The shower is awkward, but it gets the job done. :) We had no problem getting around Madrid from Puente Vallecas. There are shops and grocery stores within walking distance. The neighborhood seems safe, we had no problem getting home late. Alejandro was very easy-going and responded to emails quickly. Overall, great stay.

  • Alejandro is really nice host. We were late for 2 hours and he was waiting us and met at the metro station. The flat is really nice, there A LOT OF books and if you want you can play video games. Internet connection is well. We checked out in the evening and there was not any problems. Thanks.

  • Alejandro was a fantastic host! He was always available to answer questions about the house, or Madrid in general. He was easy to get a hold of and was there within the day if there was any problem with the house. I would highly recommend him as a host.

  • Alejandro was friendly and helpful as we settled into the apartment. And while its not in the center of Madrid, its very near a convenient subway line and is a great deal when you consider other options.

  • I absolutely loved my stay at Alejandro's apartment!
    This is a cozy, charming, and wonderfully unique home. It has everything a traveler could need, plus an amazing collection of books and other media to enjoy.
    You can truly feel at home here, and the location is very safe and right near a metro stop.
    As for Alejandro: in my opinion, he is one of airbnb's star hosts. He is incredibly helpful and welcoming, and does everything possible to make his guest's stay comfortable and delightful.
    All in all: two thumbs up!
