My name is Roberto and I rent an apartment for 4 people in Madrid downtown (Gran Vía or Chueca metro station) for days, weeks or months.
For just 60 euros per day you can enjoy a nice apartment, perfectly furnished, with towels, bed linen, microwave, iron, ceiling fan, and CD andDVD player Wi Fi, TV etc.
The apartment has one double room and a living room with a sofa bed for 2 more, a bathroom and a completed kitchen.
If you decide to stay in the apartment you will have your own key so you can go out and come whenever you want.
The apartment is located in a very lively area, very close to a metro station, with lots of bars, restaurants and shops, and also near to the main tourist places, 5 minutes walking to Gran Vía or 10 minutes walking to Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor: A perfect location to enjoy your holidays in Madrid!
Cute apartment, perfect for 4 people! Very clean and great central location!! Very easy to walk to all the main sites in Madrid. Ines was very helpful and sweet when we arrived. The only downfall is that there is little natural light that comes into the apartment, but other than that the apartment is great!
the apartment was perfect to visit the city, we were able to see everything in Madrid walking, we never took a bus or used the metro. Ines was very welcoming and helped us to orientate and suggested us the most important places of the city. We had everything we needed in the apartment. Perfect also for the night life!
El apartamento está muy bien situado en el centro de Madrid. Perfecto para no coger metro e ir andando a todos los sitios.
A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!! Pay a bit more and stay at somewhere else. I arrived to the address at 6pm and there was noone in the apartment to meet me. Had to wait for 3 hours then a friend of the owner came and let me in. Meantime, I had to try to talk to neighbours who couldnt speak Eng., even called the building men to get a phone number but to no avail..After 2.5 hours i was able to get a number of his friend from the owner thru whatsapp. Owner was in a vacation in Argentina and had told a friend to meet me but his friend didnt care. When i called his friend he said he would meet me in 30 minutes. After 30 minutes more waiting outside he was there. (Because of all this calling roaming and internet usage i had to pay around 50 dollars to my GSM operator). The internet in the flat DID NOT WORK. We wrote to the owner about the problem but he did not do anything to solve the problem. For 5 days we didnt have internet connection in the flat. There were cockroaches in the flat, especially in the bathroom. We couldnt take shower more than 5 minutes because hot water turned to cold water. There was no adequate heating in the flat so we had to leave the HAIRDRYER ON for extra heating. There is ABSOLUTELY ZERO daylight in the building. You cant know if its still day or night outside.(actually that is nice for clubbers and late sleepers). The tv didnt have anything other than some spanish channels and ..so on...I am writing this review after 25 days of waiting. Owner didnt contact me even to say he was sorry. When ur at holiday the place where ur staying is of great importance. Believe me this is not the place you would wanna spend ur holiday!! Pay even 2 times more but dont stay there.
To start with, we want to make clear that we were on holiday in Argentina, inside Pampa region, where we couldnt get any internet conection. As we knew that, we asked a good friend of us to make all the management of the booking, to receive and to attend the guests during that time, and we informed the guest about this. Our friend was waiting inside the apartment for 2 hours until he had to go because he had a meeting. The guest did not write down the adress of the house neither my friend´s cellular number, so he just tried to contact us without any success because, as we said before, we did not have internet conection. The day after the guest tried again to contact us , instead of our friend, because the wifi of the house did not work. When we finally had some internet conection we said to the guest, through whatsapp, to introduce the code of the wifi that was just written on the router. We think that that was weird because the wi fi was working just before his arrival and when we arrived from our holidays, we checked it. About the hot water, there is a tank of 100 liters in the bathroom enough to take more than a shower. There are also 3 electrical heaters, enough to keep the heat inside the apartment and make it comfortable. We dont think is normal or adecuate to keep the hairdryer and the oven on, to increase the temperature of the apartment as he did. When we came back from Argentina, a week later, we found the oven on, which is a risk for the house and for the neighbours.On the other hand, the guest didnt hesitate to call my friend after midnight when he wanted to know places to go out at night to party. Finally when we came back to Madrid from our holidays and checked the apartment, we found some irrefutable and disgusting evidences of intimate relationships and also evidences of a clubber party celebrated in our apartment.
The flat is a good value. Central location. Very quiet apartment in a busy district. Low light, good for adjusting for time changes. Ines was very helpful when we arrived. And we had everything we needed for a great stay in Madrid.
The location of the apartment is great, just 2 blocks from Gran Via and is perfect for 4 people. It’s possible to know Madrid by foot because the apartment is located in heart of Madrid. The beds are quite comfortable and the apartment is well equipped. However, the apartment is at the ground floor is dimly lit and don’t have much daylight. The apartment doesn’t have appropriated housekeeping and it is not very well-ventilated. The sheets, blankets and towels seem not be clean, it has stale smell.
Still, the location is great and I would recommend this place if you want to spend a few days.
Our family of four had a great time in this apartment! The location was perfect, two blocks from Gran Via. It was very quiet which was remarkable for the area it was in. Bathroom (shower) was a little small but the bed was quite comfortable. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen with ease. Owner provided any information that was requested.
Hello guys! Photos shown on the web don't correspond to reality. The flat was very dirty and not convenient for the living. The time we arrived, it looked that someone lived before us and there was no apropriate housekeeping made, so the sheets/blankets were not cleaned. The apartment doesn't have the daylight, and have extremely narrow windows facing walls. It absolutely dark, and you don't know what time of the day outside.Overall the space is very confined there, and the bed in the bedroom stays between walls. There was no kettle, no wine glasses in the kitchen. The shower in the bathroom was plugged, so you stay full of water while taking the shower. In addition we killed some incests, cocoraches. Therefore we have very negative perception staying in this apartments in spite of good location.
Perfect location. Starbucks two blocks away. Inexpensive and good diner in front of the apartment building with great breakfast. Tons of cute little restaurants within a few blocks and a supermarket and a liquor store only a block away. Didn't have the chance to meet Rob, but Ines met us at the apartment. She was super friendly, courteous, and happy to see us. She gave us a map of Madrid and gave us a quick briefing on the city and sites to go to. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment was clean with all the amenities listed on the post. A very nice, cozy apartment. Full kitchen. We were very happy that we found this place. Safe area. Controlled access to the building. Right in the gay neighborhood. Within blocks from awesome bars and restaurants. Wifi was fast. We never had the need to take the metro since it is centrally located.
Rob E Inès are two very nice persons. They were at the apartment when me and my friend came on October, the 10th, 2013. They explained us everything about the apartment, gave us a map of Madrid and they were ready to give us some advises about the city. They were available during the stay not only by phone but via Whatsapp as well to answer at any questions.
About the apartment:
Good points: Fully equiped (wifi & everything that you could need), very well placed (the street is very nice, it is really the center of Madrid), very calm because it is in a inner courtyard.
Drawbacks: as the apartment is at the ground floor it is dimly lit. For the same reason it could give the impression of a not very clean apartment (we found some bugs everyday) and it is not very well-ventilated (stale smell).
In the end I would say that we had a great time, so I would recommend this place if you want to spend a few days (less than a week) in Madrid.
