The Space

Lovely Apartment.


Walking, less than 15 minutes, you can visit the “Prado National Museum”, the “Queen Sofia Art Museum”, “Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum”, the Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace. The apartment is located in the neighborhood of Lavapies, the most typical and most authentic of all the capital.

In the neighborhood you can enjoy food from the most diverse countries as well as tapas and traditional Spanish cuisine. There is also a rich nightlife. You can find different type of bars where you can choose between different options. From traditional coffee through live music venues to local ethnic music.

The cultural offer is very varied, highlighting the National Centre de Arte Reina Sofía. Likewise also in the neighborhood, you can find the “Casa Encendida”, social and cultural center of many activities program, and the “Price Theatre/Circus”, venue for the performing arts through exhibitions, workshops and productions.

In its origin Lavapiés was the Jewish Quarter of the city. By order of the King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, was surrounded by a wall which used to close its doors in the evening. The reason was to protect its people rather than isolate them, since the relationship between Jewry and the council was then excellent. In 1391 Jewish mass killings were suffered under the present streets of the Fe, Salitre, Ave Maria, sombrerete and Jesus and Mary.
Near Salitre Street, appeared traces of what could be a Hebrew cemetery. Many Jewish families lived in Lavapies till the days of the expulsion in 1492. It seems that the name of Lavapiés could come from a fountain in the square, which was the ritual washing of the feet before going to the temple.

In the late 1980's Lavapies was a neighborhood inhabited exclusively by older people, typically in older homes and small built around a courtyard, which is called “corrala”. In recent years, the youth population has been gaining ground as well as people from different countries.

The apartment is located in a classic building recently renovated, equped with an elevator. This is an exterior and bright apartment of 55 m2, newly furnished with modern and functional furniture.
The bedroom has one double bed (150 x 200 cms). The lounge has one twin sofa bed (160 x 190 cms), a dining table for four and a LCD TV. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances. Wash& dryer machine The bathroom is equipped with a shower.
The apartment has wi-fi internet connection. It also has air conditioning in the living room and in the room.

  • I stay at this apartment every time I go to Madrid for work. It is so adorable and comfortable, it is always impeccably clean, and has everything you need to feel at home. Susana is a great host; she leaves a nice bottle of wine, and is always reachable in the case that i need anything.

    Gracias, Susana!

  • I have stayed in this apartment 4 times this year, as I return to Madrid often for work. It is a wonderful space in a super fun and convenient location. The apartment is always impeccably clean, and beautifully designed. I love the double balconies overlooking the lively street below. Susana is also a very attentive, friendly host who allows plenty of privacy as well. This is a great place for one person or a couple to enjoy this wonderful city!

  • Susana was waiting for me when I arrived at the apartment and had even put a bottle of wine in the fridge for the weary traveller.

    The flat was delightful, well designed with a cosy sleeping area, nice kitchen, bathroom and sitting room. Two little balconies looking onto the street but with double glazing and a/c i necessary.

    The flat was spotless and was exactly what I needed and the location was (email hidden)ly, friendly neighbourhood with lots of food shops and the metro within a ston's throw.

    Could recommend Susana's flat without hesitation

  • Beautiful apartment, exactly as the pictures show (with a great shower that is not pictured). Full of light, clean and modern, really peaceful despite the fact that this is (email hidden)ly area.
    Susana was really helpful and meeting to gain access to the apartment was easy. We will definitely stay again when we are next in Madrid!
