We are offering a beautiful, large and airy room with double bed in the centre of Madrid, just located in the heart of the city, Callao, in one of the busiest street of city.

The Space

The room is in a beautiful and quiet attic, modern decorated without any stridencies, to rest after a busy day of sightseeing, a hard working day or a funny night enjoying the famous "marcha madrileña".
Just minutes on foot from all of the sites and with easy access to shops, restaurants and pubs.

There are two single beds with a sleeping area of 90 cm wide and 200 cm length with a comfortable new mattress, a wardrobe, a desk and one chair.
-Sleeps 1-2 people
-Linens and towels provided
-Full wireless broadband internet access
-All rooms with air conditioner* and heating.
-Washer (extra charge 5eur with soap pills)

*extra charge for air conditioner use of 5eur/night.
Sorry but the Spain electricity bills has a valuable cost.

Guest Access

The apartment is on the fifth floor of a beautiful hundred-year-old building, but there is no lift! The flat has 135m2 newly renovated.

Interaction with Guests

The flat is shared with me (Fidel, architect, freelance, and university teacher), my temporal flatmate (Maria, Psysician) and perhaps with another airbnb guests. This means shared kitchen and bathroom. Breakfast is not provided, but you are welcome to cook it in the kitchen which is available between 8.00am to 11.00am.
Tea and coffee are provided in the morning. Toast, microwave and small space in the refrigerator are available for guests at any time,but the stove never is available for guests-sorry!!! and of course the necessary stuff to eat. Please don’t forget to wash it. Remember that I live here, and I cook every day and I love to maintain the space ordered and clean.

The Neighborhood

The walking distances to all the museums and most important tourist sites such as Chueca, Malasaña, Palacio Real, Gran Via, etc. Metro and buses only a step away to communicate with any part of the city.
Distance from the building by foot according to Maps (which assumes a slow walk):
Royal Theater: 4 minutes 350 m
Plaza de España: 7 minutes 600m
Royal Palace: 8 minutes 700m
Museo del Prado: 19 minutes 1.5km
Museo Reina Sofía: 23 minutes 2km
Museo Thyssen Bornemisza: 15minutes 1.3 km
Parque del Retiro: 23 minutes 1.8km
Estación de Atocha 29 minutes 2.4km

Chueca : 7 minutes 600m
Parking: Next to our building is a Mercure Hotel which has a parking also you find it in Plaza de las Descalzas and Plaza de Santa Maria (called Plaza de los luna)

Getting around

The apartment is centrally located and has great access to all public transportation.
•Main Train Station (Sol to Atocha): 2 stops away (Cercanias) or 4 metro stop
•Buses stops: less than a 3 minute walk Gran Via or Puerta del Sol
•Metro: red, yellow and green line is less than a 3 minute walk
Santo Domingo, Callao are our closest stations.
•Airport Shuttle Bus 24h: Located around 15minutes on foot.–PLAZA DE CIBELES-(5 euros per person)
If you come from Atocha: the best option is to catch a train of CERCANIAS from Atocha to Sol, only one station(1.50eur). Once there, you have to walk throughout Calle Preciados, the street is not straight, it is like "L" , just in the corner is Plaza Callao, in the end Plaza Santo Domingo, between this two squares is the number 36.

Other Things to Note

I speak English and of course my mother tongue Spanish and I am open minded. For your stay in Madrid I can give you good tips.

  • My wife and I was there in the beginning of May,
    Fidel's apartment is very clean, silent to sleep and very well located. You are near of many attractions of Madrid on foot and near of three metro stations. We recommend it.

    Apartamento do Fidel é muito limpo, silencioso par dormir e bem localizado. Você pode ir a pé em várias atrações da cidade e você está perto de três estações de metro. Nós recomendamos.

  • Super clean rooms, central location and gorgeous design of the whole house made my trip in Madrid very enjoyable. Everything was perfect!! Thank you so much!!

    April 2014
  • Nice, clean, convenient place. More like an intimate hotel than a guest house.
    I will recommend it, and will be back!

  • Excellent room to stay in Madrid! The best location to see the city. The place is very nice with all facilities. There is no lift and it's on a 5th floor, but if you do not mind, this place will be perfect! Fidel is a very nice person that will help you in everything you need.

  • We thought this place was perfect! Fidel was welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable, and the apartment as a whole was lovely. The location was also really handy for first-timers to Madrid, as it is right in the middle of everything you'd want to visit, whilst being on a surprisingly quiet street. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere nice and not too expensive.

  • Great host! excellent location. I would recommend

  • We agree with every positive comment left by other guests. Fidel's apartment is central, beautiful, light and çomfortable. We especially enjoyed how QUIET it was despite the very central location only one block from Puerta del Sol. We were able to sleep well every night and wake refreshed for another day of sightseeing.
    But the best part of our stay was Fidel himself. We speak very little Spanish but his English was great and even better--he let me practice my fractured Spanish on him. When we both came down with colds two days after we arrived he was incredibly helpful. We cannot say enough good things about our experience.
