The apartment is completely renovated and with all comforts.

Nous avions convenu avec Miguel d'une heure d'arrivée et celui-ci nous attendait dans l'appartement. Ce dernier correspond parfaitement à la description: bien amménagé, pratique et avec tout ce qu'il fallait. Miguel avait même prévu des produits alimentaires de base pour notre petit déjeuner.
L'appartement fait face à une petite place et a 3 balcons, ce qui le rend lumineux.
Le quartier est à 20' à pied de la plaza Mayor et de la partie historique de madrid. Le Rastro n'est pas loin pour ceux qui désirent se promener dans le plus grand marché au monde.
L'environnement est correct sans plus. Le soir, il y a un peu de bruit jusqu'aux environs de minuit, mais après cela tout est calme. La population locale est plutôt "multicolore", sympathique et jamais nous n'avons eu un sentiment d'insécurité.
Enfin, le métro "Lavapies" est exactement à 150m de l'appartement. Ce fut notre point de départ pour toutes nos expéditions à la découverte de Madrid.
Miguel has a fantastic place in a neighborhood that's always on the go, but not so much that you can't enjoy your privacy, too. Miguel's flat is beautifully laid out, very creative use of the space and still efficient and practical as can be imagined. Also, Miguel warmly welcomed us when we arrived giving us a useful orientation of both the flat and the neighborhood...best places to eat, grocery shop, transportation, walking routes...everything needed to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We highly recommend Miguel flat to anyone with an appreciative eye and an interest in Madrid.
Miguel's apartment is wonderful. It is indeed light-filled. I loved the large windows overlooking the small park across the street. Being able to let air and light in in the mornings was great!
The apartment is beautifully furnished and absolutely spotless. The king bed with down comforter is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you might want. The apartment even has a cute little work area with desk. It was comfortably heated, which was great the first day/night when it was pretty chilly in Madrid!
The area is great. An easy walk to one of my favorite museums: La Reina Sofia. There is a great market hall next door which has all the regular market things (fruit/vegetable stands, fish, meat, bread) but also some gourmet and eco stands, plus a small used books stand (where you pay for books by kilogram). The neighborhood has some fun bars and stores.
We were greeted by Miguel's partner who made us feel very welcome and explained everything we needed to know. Miguel checked in with us a few days into our stay.
Wow. What a wonderful apartment. Even better than it looks in the photos and absolutely immaculate. It also smelled lovely! Miguel couldn't meet us as he was ill, but his friend David met us at the apartment and was really friendly. The place itself is cleaner than any hotel I've ever stayed in, and incredibly well thought-out and laid out. The heating works fabulously (somewhat rare in Spain) and although the apartment is in a bustling neighbourhood, it was totally silent at night thanks to the double glazed windows. The bed is MASSIVE and immensely comfy - I had the best night's sleep I've had in years. Miguel provided a cosy travel cot for my toddler, too. If you do come with a buggy, be warned that although there is a lift in the building, it's laid out in such a way that there's a small flight of steps up to each apartment, but that wasn't a major concern for us. The apartment is also very toddlerproof, with safety plug sockets and no sharp edges.
Everything is within walking distance, the neighbourhood is really cool, with a market and a good supermarket about a three minute walk away. It's 15 minutes' walk to the main train station, and there are two metro stops (Embajadores and Lavapiés) a couple of minutes away.
I had a fantastic stay here and would definitely come back again - I'll never stay in a hotel again in Madrid!
El piso está tan bien decorado y distribuido que vamos a tomar ideas para cuando nos compremos uno! Es muy calentito, con mil sorpresas y detallitos. Muuuuuy limpio y con muchas comodidades (Ferreros, toallitas desmaquillantes, desodorante, secador, mil ollas y paellas, desayuno, aceite, vinagre de módena!!!, libros, limpieza, la decoración, el balconcito, la tele...!). Muchas gracias por tus detalles, un 10!
Definiria o apartamento de Miguel como, perfeito. E sua atenção com os hóspedes maravilhosa, além dos mimos oferecidos, que fazem a diferença. Obrigada!!
Miguel was the ideal host. He met us at the apartment to welcome us. The location is good, 15 minutes to Plaza Mayor and most places we wanted to go, and a metro a block away for the other places. Most important, my husband had a medical emergency and needed to go to the hospital at night. Miguel immediately responded to our text with a hospital recommendation and had a cab at the apartment in 5 minutes. Thanks to the good work of the hospital, my husband healed and was able to enjoy the rest of our trip.
