The Space

**Discounted price this week. We are in town and available to meet you and calendar is up to date ALWAYS**

We are renting this cozy, bright and silent home in the most bohemian, multicultural lively neighbourhood in Madrid: Lavapiés. The apartment is bright (with lots of light) cozy and extremely silent. It's perfect for a couple but the couch can be converted into a single bed, so three friends or a couple with a baby could also fit perfectly.

With lots of restaurants, bars and walking distance to the main attractions in the city, this is your perfect destination for a holiday in Madrid.

In particular, in Lavapiés you'll find lots of Spanish, Asian and Arabic restaurants and bars to hang out . It is also very close to theaters and museums, like Reina Sofia and Caixaforum. The Prado museum and Thyssen Bornemisza are reachable by foot too. Despite of it being a very lively neirbourghood, the flat is very silent, perfect for your night rest. Even though most of the center of Madrid is reachable by foot from our place, the metro is also very close and the house is well served with public transportation.

The apartment is well equipped and WI-FI is available during your stay. There is also a 32 inches TV.
The flat is composed of living room, kitchen and a bedroom which includes an adjacent room used as studio and wardrobe. Though small, the space is very well used and more than enough to meet your needs while on holiday, study or business trip. Here you'll find everything you need. Of course fresh linen. Maps and a guide of Madrid and sorroundings will be available during your stay! Just tell us what you need and we'll be happy to help you with anything you may need during your stay.

The apartment is in the fourth floor of a walk up building, like most buildings in the centre of Madrid... so NO elevator, but I can always help you with your luggage if you are carrying so much weight:)

We try to be as flexible as possible with your check in so as to allow you to get into the apartment as soon as you get downtown. Let us know your schedules and we'll work it out! However, if you arrive from 10pm to 12pm there is a LATE CHECK IN FEE of 15 euro payable upon arrival. From 12pm to 1.30am, the LATE CHECK IN FEE is 25 euro.

We look forward to receiving you at our place really soon!

  • Lovely apartment in a central but peaceful area of Madrid. All the amenities you could wish for, plenty of space for myself and my boyfriend. Great communication with Oscar and Vanessa too before we went. Location was easy walking distance to all major attractions too.

  • Had a good stay in Oscar and Vanessa's place. I had forgot the key one night and they made sure i got it the next day despite both being at work. Oscar made sure I got an ironing board and iron, and gave me more than enough info before leaving me on my own. They are both lovely people and great hosts (even gave me beer!) Thnx again guys, please tell me if you are ever in Zurich Switzerland -Jon

  • Oscar and Vanessa are great hosts, good to communicate with, helpful, friendly and conscientious. There were lots of helpful tips and advice on Madrid and the apartment was in a great location with a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars very close. Its situated in a colourful part of the city and within walking distance of many of the city sights. Highly recommended.

  • This apartment was great for our weekend in Madrid. It's central, in a nice neighborhood and near the metro. The apartment is small but big enough for a couple. Nice soft bed en fine bathroom! I would recommend this apartment to friends and family.

    February 2014
  • The apartment was exactly as described and was very clean - The location is excellent, short walks to city center, supermarket and metro stations - The kitchen has great facilities - The bathroom is very small but has everything you need - easy communication prior to arrival and smooth and flexible check in with Oscar - we felt right at home and can only recommend you to stay there!!!!

  • We had a great time in Madrid! The apartment was near the city center and everything was easy to reach on foot, which we appreciated very much. There was a Carrefour really nearby, so we could also cook at home and have breakfast every morning. The hosts even left us the main spices and some condiments for cooking, so we did not have to buy them.

    Of course the apartment was very clean and comfortable, as we expected. There is only one thing to mention, which wasn't perfect: the bathroom was very small. But the most important thing is we were very happy about our stay there and the hosts were very friendly (especially Anna who showed us the apartment)! Thank you very much for letting us stay in your place! We can highly recommend this apartment to everyone.

  • This apartment was lovely and clean. We had lots of room for 2 of us. The bathroom is a little small but the shower was lovely and hot. The supermarket was a short stroll down the street which was very convenient as we cooked in the apartment sometimes. Oscar and Vanessa provide the basics like cooking oil, salt,sugar,tea,coffee which is helpful along with all their suggestions of places to go and places to eat. There were extra blankets in the wardrobe for the cold nights which was nice. We did have to use the heating as the weather was cold during our stay. We walked everywhere from the apartment due to its closeness to the city centre but there are metro stops close by also. Overall I felt safe in the city even walking at night. There were some dodgy looking characters around the lavapies square at night but no one bothered us except one time we were offered drugs! We politely refused and kept walking! Would recommend to everyone except those who would have difficulty with 4 flights of stairs - especially after a long days adventure! Thanks Oscar and Vanessa for a lovely stay.

  • A wonderful apartment that is just as perfect as its pictures online. Quiet at night and the bed was very comfortable. It also has a very central location and was easy to get to everything by foot. There is also a wonderful coffee shop a couple of doors up that we frequented for breakfast. The only issue we had was with the bathroom door not shutting fully, but didn't matter for just the two of us. Apartment was clean and Oscar and Ana were more than helpful.

About
Hi!! We welcome you to Spain and we wish you a good stay in Madrid! Oscar works as a photographer and Vanessa studies drama and theatre production and management. However, until some years ago Oscar was an engineer and Vanessa was a corporate lawyer. And then one day we decided to turn our lifes up side down and follow our real passions. We are best friends and on May 2012 we decided to move forward and enroll in a small business together. Vanessa had been hosting with Airbnb for 2 years (renting the spare room at her place in Madrid/Milan and her apartment in Barcelona) and her experience (upgraded to Superhost in early 2011) was so positive that we decided we could also help other owners that don't live in town or don't have the time to rent their properties to travelers as you. And this is what we are doing now together. Since from September 2013 Vanessa is very busy with her drama studies, we've asked our friend Ana to help us with the flats. So now we are 3 people! More about us, we love to travel: in 2012 Vanessa traveled to Greece with her backpack and Oscar spent a few months working in France. Last summer Oscar repeated the French experience while Vanessa explored Malaysia during a month and a half. We are also keen in meeting new people and learning new things from them. We enjoy little life pleasures like riding our bicycles or growing our small organic vegetables gardens (each of us has one). We like eco-friendly environments since we care a lot about our planet. During weekends, we have our friend Anibal who helps us with check ins and cleanings. We will help you to find you like home in this beautiful city and we look forward to having the opportunity to meet you soon!! Vanessa & Oscar
