About This Listing
Best location in Madrid. Everything is at a walking distance from the apartment. Museums, restaurants, gym, the Royal Palace, the Opera house, the Rastro... You can enjoy the daytime wondering around, visiting the most important spots; but also the night time. Chueca has an interesting night live, and it is very close to the artistic/intellectual Malasaña, the multicultural Lavapies or Huertas, the area with the highest ratio of turists.
The apartment has a living room, a kitchen, bathroom and a room upstairs. This room has a double and a single bed, both under a window each, to sleep watching the spanish sky. In the living room there is a sofa bed for 2 more people and a couch if you need that extra place. Total: 6 people. The living room itself has huge windows that allow the sun in all day long. You won't find many apartments brighter that this one.
Fuencarral street is perpendicular to this one. That is one of the main shopping streets in Madrid. If you want to try a really nice paella, ask me. The place is very close but I don't want to write it down here (please help us keeping paellas at a high standard by not going to just any horrible place where they will give you some yellow rice and will charge you a fortune).
Chueca is a gay friendly area. If you walk around you will notice it. You can expect to come across same-sex couples holding hands or kissing each other.

No parties. Sorry.
Treat the apartment and the neighbors as you wish to be treated. Respect them all.
Remember that after 00h00 no screaming or loud music is allowed in any apartment.
There are fishes and they would like to eat. Look for their food in the red drower right below the aquarium.
Emilio's loft was simply, perfect. I'm sitting here right now trying to think of a fault and I can not think of a single one. Every room I run through looking to give feedback on, I can't come up with improvements. The bathroom was modern and luxurious, and kitchen was incredibly well-equipped, the bed area was a lively cozy (but not at all small) elevated place where rest could be easily obtained, and the living room was spacious, spacious, spacious.
I suppose if for some reason, be it crutches or a wheelchair or what have you, you are unable to climb stairs, it would be impossible to climb up to the bed area, but for me it was 100% fine, and it would certainly be for nearly everyone. Really a great find, and in a superbly central area as well. So much great food to eat!
Sólo estuvimos un día, pero la verdad es que repetiríamos apartamento. Está muy cerca de varios bares recomendables y muy cerca del centro. Además el apartamento corresponde a las imágenes que hay en el anuncio.
First and foremost, Emilio is a wonderful host. Extremely good at communicating no matter when you contact him and always answers any questions quickly and directly. A great guy, who attempted to socialize with myself and my quests, but due to issues on my side, we weren't able to get together. The apartment itself is a very nice apartment that will sleep six comfortably. Situated on the top floor of a six floor building, Emilio's apartment faces an interior courtyard and is very quite, despite the bustling street scene six floors below. The apartment is well appointed and equipped sufficiently that you can cook a decent meal if you so desire. The location of the apartment could not be better. Step out the front door and you are immediately immersed in one of the most vibrant and fun neighborhoods in all of Madrid. Plenty of great restaurants, shops and bars in close proximity to the apartment. I will definitely be back. Love the place.
Our stay in Madrid was absolutely perfect. We had 5 people stay and there was more than enough space. The location is wonderful and the area is very charming. We had all the necessities supplied to us (towels, shampoo) and the kitchen was stocked with all the utilities and pots and pans we needed. Emilio was incredibly welcoming and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again!
Emilie was incredibly welcoming and accommodating. He was very flexible in terms of schedule and very easy to communicate with about my arrival. Upon arrival, he not only showed me around the apartment, but also gave me tips on where to eat in the neighborhood and some nice things to do in the city. He was so friendly and I felt at home right away. I was also very impressed with the apartment - its even better than the pictures and had everything I needed.
Emilio made us feel welcome and waited for me outside to guide me to his lovely apartment.

About the Host, Emilio
A few words about me.
I consider myself optimistic and hardworking. I like reading, music, swimming, cycling... that makes me pretty normal, I guess. One of my favorite things to do is traveling, like the most of the people here, probably, and that's how I got to know this site.
In my case, I'm renting an apartement, not a room, so I'm having contact with my guests only if they want me to. If you need any advise about Madrid, you can ask me. And, if I have the time, we can go have a beer around.
