About this listing
Quiet and cosy studio in a very good area, very close to everything you need to see in Madrid, and surrounded of lots of tapas bars.
Bright and quiet studio located in the most madrilenian neighbourhood (Chamberí). This studio is really close to everything: 5 min by tube to Puerta del Sol and all the most important art galleries (Museo del Prado, Museo Reina Sofía, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, …) and 5 min walk from two of the liveliest parts of the city: Malasaña and Chueca. These two neighbourhoods are the most fashionable areas of the moment, where you can find vintage shops and trendy bars, as well as the typical Spanish tapas bars. Even though the apartment is within walking distance of a very lively area, it is situated in a very quiet street off Fuencarral, and it’s also overlooking an interior patio, which provides an even more peaceful environment. There’s even a very typical garden/square just round the corner (Plaza de Olavide), famous for it’s tapas bars, and also an original version cinema 300 yards away.
You can also take the tube to the “Golden Mile”, where all the most fashionable and luxurious shops are concentrated, and be there within 10 min.
The closest tube station is Quevedo (L2, red line), and also Bilbao (L1, blue line, and L4, brown line) and Iglesia (L1 blue line) stations, both 5 minutes away.
The building is provided with a wheelchair ramp, and also has 2 lifts (width of wheelchairs should be consulted).
It has a huge comfortable sofa bed, dinning table, kitchenette with all the kitchenware, sink, electric cooker, breakfast bar, fridge, microwave, Italian coffee maker, kettle and toaster. The bathroom is big compared to the whole apartment, complete with a bath and a shower. The apartment is provided with both linen and towels.
It also includes a potent fan, central heating individually managed, a washing machine, a 32” LED LCD TV with all kinds of ports (you can watch a HD DVD or the photos taken during that day in the TV), a book collection and WiFi internet connection (optic fibre).
I live in the same building, so I can tell you this is the best location you will find!
We expect from you to return it in the same good conditions it was found. Pets are not allowed, and smoking is strongly forbidden. The maximum number of guests is limited to 2 people. The appliances should be used for their intended uses only.
About the Host, Sara
My dad has been renting this flat for years, but decided to make a refurbishment of the flat a few years ago, and that’s when I got involved. We've been renting it for a long stay, but we've decided to try short stays as I was living in the same building and I could help him with the managing of the reservations.
My dad is a great Madrid’s lover and knows a lot about the city, and he is available to answer any questions you may have -he speaks perfect English, as he studied at the British Institute when he was young. As for me, I used to live in England and now work at the airport, so you won’t have any language problems with us. I'm now living in another town, as I've just been transferred by my company, so my dad will be the one attending you (he also lives close by) and I'm only in charge of the reservations.
