¡Gentle traveller, welcome to Madrid!

The flat is perfectly located in a sunny and quiet street between LAVAPIÉS, the most bohemien area of Madrid with a popular atmosphere and LA LATINA, the Rastro market area.
It's a friendly multicultural neighbourhood, where you can find sunny terraces to taste authentic spanish cuisine but also an international offer and cool hangouts. Plus, you will be at a short walk from the Museum area of Madrid: Reina Sofia, Prado, Thyssen and Caixa Forum.
It is a great place to start your exploration of the city! The street where the flat is located will lead you directly to the Rastro vintagemarket every sunday, a must-see in town.

Plus, you will be:
1 tube stop from Sol
2 stops from Callao.
anyway in Madrid people gets used fast to the national sport: walking! Up&down the hills! Forget the metro and start to explore the town because you will be 15 minutes walking from any other great center areas: Huertas/Triball/Malasaña/Chueca.

Bank at the corner
Supermarket /Market /Take aways at a short walk
Grocery shops opened until late all around the area
Vegetarian shops& bio market at the corner:)

Jumped out of the Metro (line 3 or 1) in just 5 minutes by walk you'll reach the 65mq apartament, located in an antique typical spanish building, but renovated with elevator.
We offer you a nice & bright flat for 2 up to 4 GUESTS with a colourful energyzing eclectic look & ethnic decor. The best part: 4 tiny balconies facing at the quiet street with no noise&traffic.
The flat is PERFECT FOR A COUPLE, it will be a huge suite to get some rest after a day of city walking:)
But we think the flat is a great solution also for FAMILIES with KIDS or a a GROUP OF FRIENDS, because it has 2 BEDROOMS, (one bigger and one smaller) and the two couches are eventually suitable as extra-beds if you are more than 4:)
So no matter what kind of trip you're planning (romantic trip for two/family trip/friends reunion trip..) we have a solution for you!

Living area, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with tiny tube, two bedrooms with 2 double beds (2mx1,35): one big and one smaller ideal for kids or a second couple of friends. Every room has its own tiny balcony.

When we rent only for two people the standard is just rent the main honeysuckle pink bedroom.

Heating, linen and towels, fridge, microwave oven, all the facilities for cooking, coffee maker, water boiler, toaster, hair-dryer, washing machine, clothesline, iron&board, shower, TV, DVD Player, Internet wireless connection and hi-fi equipment.

* Kids allowed. Only gentle Pets allowed.

Consideration of neighbours and of owner's property is expected.

I live here since years and I will be pleased to give you any information you need to enjoy your stay.
I am an experienced traveller all around the world and you'll find my collection of souvenirs spread all over the flat.
I will really be pleased to share all my "hidden" secrets about the city.

I'm focusing the AIRBNB GUIDE SECTION on the area you will live in but once we'll meet feel free to ask whatever you are after, I will find it for you!
Madrid's offer is really amazing&huge.

Check In
  • iaia was a wonderful host.We met at the scheduled time.She explained everything to us and gave us many suggestions on things to do and see in Madrid. It was easy to contact her while in Madrid by e mail, phone, or text.
    The apartment is just as it is described....cute and alot of personal touches..many small markets on the same street and large market @7-1o minutes away by foot. Metro is also short 5 minute walk. My daugter and i had a wonderful time...Everything is right there.Large floor to ceiling windows to let the sun shine in at Miro del Sol!!

    Response from Marta:

    Thanks a lot! You're sooo kind!

  • Loved staying in La Casa del Sol! Plenty of room for two couples - the smaller bedroom is still plenty big enough with lots of storage. Very colourful, cozy and spotless- we felt at home immediately. The flat has a great location (email hidden)ly area - but still quiet at night. Lots of little shops to buy basic supplies and open late. Easy to walk into the centre of old madrid and main museums etc Loved Madrid and would particularly recommend Prado, chocaliterie at and flamenco at casa patas.
    Laia met us there and was friendly and welcoming - she also recommended some places to eat one of which we tried and really enjoyed. Would definitely stay again!

  • My life in the house of La casa del Sol is a delight of soul. A fine arrangement (the museums Prado, Peine Sofia, Palacio Real, Thyssen-Bornemisza nearby, the market Rastro known to all Europe on the next street,) the stylish and cozy apartment is equipped with all necessary household appliances + fast WiFi, the careful and attentive Iaia, always ready to help. It was so fine to go down in a bakery, to buy the freshest bread, to make coffee and to feel real the inhabitant of Madrid. In my following trips to Madrid I know, where I will live is an apartment in the house on La casa del Sol. Iaia, thanks a lot for the provided possibility!!!

    Response from Marta:


  • Staying in Laia's apartment was an absolute dream; Laia was so friendly and helpful from the moment my girlfriend and I arrived and throughout, while the area itself is close to everything and absolutely fantastic.

    On arrival we were given the keys and a brief tour of the apartment, as well as Laia's contact details for any questions or requests we might have raised, and with that Laia left us to our own devices to explore!

    Luckily Laia also left us a map of the entire city and encouraged us to take a walk around to get a proper feel for Madrid, which is something I too would recommend seeing as everything is so close by, the streets are beautiful and vibrant, but most importantly it's sunny!

    The apartment itself had more than enough room for the two of us and was absolutely gorgeous. A range of ornaments, plants and other personal touches gave the place character whilst the four balconies ensured the place remained bathed in light. Waking up with the morning sun streaming through the flat each day was definitely a real treat.

    All in all it was absolutely brilliant and I would certainly love to stay here again when I return to Madrid. With so much to see and do (and eat!) and staying in a place as gorgeous as Reco Del Sol, it was very difficult not to fall in love with the Spanish capital. Thank you for everything Laia!

  • Wonderful location, central and at the same time not too close from the tourist center. Very practical access to food and restaurants. Cosy apartment with a very lively decoration. Marta is very a very helpful and nice guest.

  • We loved our time in Marta's apartment. Great location, decor, and comfort. Also well received by her friend (thank you, China), and with very good information on moving around in Madrid. The apartment is fully equiped with all needed and is suroounded with great grocery stores and restaurants. Most everything is walking distance. Thank you, Marta

  • Thank you Marta for a a great experience in Spanish capital. The apartment was great and suited our needs perfectly. The neighborhood was very nice and centrally located to all center attractions. Marta was a great hat and insured we had plenty of information about the surrounding area, attractions, and map orientation. I definitely recommend this apartment for your stay. It's a great value and would definitely use it again!

  • Marta’s pretty flat is as colorful and quirkily decorated as her photos indicate. It is quite a bit larger than we expected, and could easily accommodate four people with plenty of room for relaxing and reading. It was very clean and very comfortable, with a well-stocked kitchen. While not in the center of Madrid, it is within easy walking distance of Plaza Mayor and Sol, and there are three or four Metro stations just a few blocks away. Lavapies is a very diverse neighborhood and is close to several markets, so it’s a great area to walk around in. Although Marta was out of town the day we arrived, her friend China met us at the apartment and gave us a very thorough orientation, and Marta had already supplied us with an exhaustive list of recommended restaurants, flamenco clubs, etc., and urged us to contact her with any questions. A most hospitable host!

  • Primera experiencia con air bnb... super buena!!! Un lugar súper chevere, muy cómodo y muy cerca de todo.
    Nos dieron una súper bienvenida y nos explicaron todo de la ciudad . No nos queríamos ir! ;-)

  • Marta is lovely, really quick to respond to queries and full of information about places to see and things to do. We loved the apartment, which has everything you need and is very clean and bright. The location is excellent, within walking distance of many of Madrid's wonderful galleries and other places of interest. We really liked the area with its mix of people and excellent markets and interesting food shops. It'(email hidden)ly area, the Rastro market is only a minute away, but the apartment is an oasis of calm and quiet. The beds are very comfortable - not to be underestimated when on holiday(!) - and there was good wifi. In short we would definitely return to stay at Marta's and hope to do exactly that in the not to distant future. Highly recommended.
