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!
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.
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.
it is a nice apartment with almost all we need, like food, kitchen, washing machine... we really spent a good time in it in Madrid!
Appartement bien situé, confortable, idéal pour un couple ( avec un enfant), très propre et correctement équipé, calme, à quelques minutes du centre et de la gare d'Atocha. Les infos laissées à disposition par les hôtes sont pertinentes (bons restaus etc).
les plus: très bon rapport qualité prix, accueil sympa.Tout petits moins: 4ème sans ascenseur(bagages), en hiver confort thermique moyen malgré un chauffage en bon état.
J'y reviendrai et je le conseille à mes amis sans réserve.
This was the perfect place for the two of us. The flat is tastefully decorated, has everything you need, feels larger than it is (thanks to some clever space-saving design) and is on the top (fourth) floor and a little back from the street, so it is very quiet and fairly bright. It also has a large desk and excellent WiFi - perfect if you need to get some work done. The heating works well and the two air conditioners are doubtless very useful during the summer months. However, the absence of a lift and the narrow, winding staircase may be an issue for some.
The location is ideal - walking distance to Sol and the major galleries and the nearest metro station is two minutes away. Lavapies is a down-at-heel neighbourhood that is in the early stages of gentrification (in spite of the economic crisis) and has a lot of interesting cafes and restaurants. It also has more than its fair share of drug dealers, but the atmosphere is not menacing in any way and we always felt safe. Our hosts were extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely stay there again.
Oscar & Vanessa's place was perfect for my wife and I during our stay. We had a delayed flight and got a little lost, but thank goodness Anna (their friend) was there for our late check in! Walking distance to the Metro (Anton Martin stop) and within 15-20 min of the Prado, Plaza Mayor, and the royal palace. The apt is on the top floor, so if you don't mind 4 flights of stairs go for it! shops and markets are nearby if you like to cook for yourself, and there's a good list of places to eat and see that left by Oscar and Vanessa. I wouldn't venture alone at night a there are some seedy looking spots in the Lavapies area. Just down flash your money and flaunt expensive stuff and you should be ok.
The apt is very nice and updated (don't let the outside fool ya). The bed is comfortable and the place had heaters so the cold didn't bother us. Water is nice and hot and the washing machine is very helpful when packing light. And the WIFI was a godsend! we are both Americans from California and if felt at home here. All in all I highly recommend their place!
Oscar&Vanessa are very kind people and they helped us during the holydays answering quickly to our email. Their suggestions were really usefull to discover real Madrid. Apartment is very comfortable and close to the principal attraction of the city, almost
everything is attainable by walking. I suggest this apartment to everyone!
