Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfekt läge! Väldigt centralt och ändå alldeles lugnt. Inget trafikbuller eller liknande alls. Det mesta inom rimligt gångavstånd annars finns två metrostationer inom 100 meter från lägenheten. Trevlig och bra utrustad lägenhet åtminstone för oss som är hyfsat rörliga. Trappan till andra våningen kan säkert upplevas som brant och smal av vissa.

  • Marian & Javier are truly lovely hosts! We stayed for one perfect week in their cozy and clean apartment, and never once lacked for anything. Although it is small, every inch is utilized perfectly, and everything you could need for relaxing, preparing food, or preparing for a night out is there. And after a long day, the queen size bed is so comfortable. The apartment is so quiet, you can't believe you are in the middle of Madrid, but as soon as you walk out the door, the energy of the city is there to greet you! Marian & Javier prepared a booklet of suggested restaurants and sites to see in the neighbourhood for their guests to refer to. We tried nearly everything they suggested and everything was excellent! We could walk to every major site in Madrid, but if you don't feel like walking, a metro station is around the corner. Shopping, restaurants, cafes, bakeries and parks are all close by! Next time we are in Madrid, we are definitely staying at this perfectly located and cozy apartment. Thank you Marian and Javier!

  • The flat that Javier and Marian rented to us is nothing short of amazing. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. The neighborhood location was perfect and right near the Opera Square which has a subway stop that connects you to everywhere you could want to go in Madrid. If we travel back to Madrid (likely, we loved it), then we would surely stay here again. Wish we could have this flat in every city that we visit.

  • When we arrived Javier was there to give us a warm welcome. He also provided us with a book listing out popular attractions nearby. The apartment is nice and cozy, in the center of everything. Great location.

  • The location could not have been better! While small, the flat was perfectly furnished with everything that we needed and it was comfortable. Javier made us feel very welcome and provided us with a booklet of recommendations for restaurants, shopping and sites.

  • Séjour plus que parfait ! Hôte super accueillant et serviable. Il répond rapidement à toutes vos demandes. Le quartier est fantastique. Très agréable pour les visites, les promenades, les restaurants, les magasins... Les hôtes ont créés un guide du quartier et des environs qui est bien fait et utile. L'appartement situé au 4e étage (avec ascenseur) est charmant et très très calme. Il donne sur une cour intérieur. Au coeur de Madrid près de l'Opéra et du Palais Royal ! Bon séjour à tous ! Merci à nos hôtes!

  • Javier a été très (website hidden) nous a attendu jusqu'après minuit pour le check-in.L'appartement est petit mais il est très confortable et très équipé(sèche-cheveux,serviettes,fer à repasser).Javier et Marian ont pris la peine d'éditer un classeur qui sert de guide touristique pour le quartier et qui nous a été très utile.
    Le quartier est très sympa et on peut tout faire à pied au départ de l'appartement.
    Ce dernier est très calme car il donne sur une cour intérieure.
    Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour et le mercado San Miguel qui tout près du studio est une incroyable experience,nous y sommes retournés tous les soirs.

  • Javier and Mariam were wonderful hosts, and the apartment was lovely. We stayed for 3 days, and were incredibly comfortable. The apartment is just as pictured, if not cuter, and checking in was incredibly smooth. Javier was there waiting for us, and left us a wonderful guide of the area! This was a great place to explore the rest of the city from! It is so convenient to all of the major sights, and from here we walked all over the city. We will definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to come back to Madrid.

Hola! We've lived in Madrid all our lives, so we know it like the back of our hands. We have three little kids, so we had to move out of this apartment a few years ago. But we want other people to enjoy it as much as we did, so we've decided to open it up now (as of September 2012) to airbnb travellers. Welcome to our cosy little duplex in the heart of Madrid! Hasta pronto!
