Ernesto's flat was lovely. It had everything we needed: a fully equipped kitchen, modern bathroom with things like hair dryer, ironing board etc. There was clean bedding and towels and lots of water (and beer!) left in the fridge. The only downside was the very noisy road it was on. So if you are a light sleeper don't sleep in the front bedroom and you can't really open balcony doors due to car fumes. That said it was a great location for us as 5 minutes from Atocha RENF train station where we took a train to Valencia. And a few mintes from the museum quarter with some lovely bars as well as the gorgeous park and gardens. So overall great modern flat and would stay there again.
I can absolutely recommend this apartment! Super clean, great location. We stayed here with 7 friends and had a wonderful time.
Ernesto has a very functional flat. It's in between two metro stops and ideal if you're arriving in Atocha train station. There's a grocery store practically next door if you want to take advantage of the kitchen. Check in was mid day and flawless. Ernesto wasn't available but his brother was there though I didn't test his English. Lastly, Ernesto is really good with communication and replying to your questions. Thanks Ernesto!
Appartamento molto bello,situato molto vicino a stazioni della metro e ai principali luoghi di interesse della città(reina Sofia, Prado, ecc..)
Ernesto un ottimo host (ci ha aspettato all'appartamento sebbene siamo arrivati tardissimo con l'aereo), molto disponibile e (email hidden)nsiglio a chiunque..posto davvero valido!!
Obrigado pela acolhida, adoramos a acolhedora Madri e as acomodações e a localização, de outro lado, conforme já comentado em e-mail, tivemos desconforto com a cama de casal pois a estrutura metálica encontrava-se quebrada sendo impossível a um casal dormir nela. Para o turista o que mais agrada nas acomodações é um bom chuveiro e confortáveis camas, de resto o turista pouco usufrui nas acomodações.
Host: Ernesto was the best host. He provided transportation information for our arrival and time in Madrid. He was receptive to all emails and questions regarding the neighborhood.
APARTMENT: the three bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, hardwood floors was perfect for our stay. I enjoyed the neighborhood. Also the apartment had enough hot water for 4 ladies.
I really enjoyed this place and would stay here again.
Ernesto's apartment was fantastic! The place was very clean, and looked exactly like the pictures he posted. Ernesto was very detailed and organised in ensuring our group of 4 had a pleasant stay. From the moment I booked the apartment, he sent me detailed guides on how to arrive from the airport, as well as the supermarkets and personal recommendations on where to eat around the apartment.
While he wasn't able to receive us personally, his brother Antonio was able to accommodate our sudden change in check-in timing from 6.30pm to 2pm. The air-conditioning and heaters worked perfectly, and we were overjoyed to find that the refrigerator was FULLY STOCKED with milk, juice, soft drinks, and even beer! There was also quite a selection of biscuits and tea provided too.
The location of the apartment was great. Roughly 7mins to the nearest metro, Atocha, and just 3 stops away from the main shopping districts Gran Via and Vodafone Sol depending on where you want to go. The minimart just downstairs was really convenient too!
TL;DR Brilliant 5/5 stay! Would definitely come back to Ernesto's apartment if I'm visiting Madrid again!
