Absolutely great apartment, with all the comfort needed for a short or a longer stay. All was as showed in the pictures, so no bad surprises. Lots and lots of natural light, all day long. It gets hot in the afternoon, but just close the curtains, and A/C works very well. The street can be a bit busy and noisy at night, for those who are sensitive to that kind of things, but far from being the worse one. Plus, the windows are extremely efficient once they're closed, so we didn't have any problem at all as for sleeping.
Although we stayed in his flat for 9 nights, we didn't get a chance to meet Miguel personally, as he was on vacation himself, but we were greeted by his friend Teresa, who was a very nice person, and always reachable in case we had any question or problem (which did not occur). Miguel was also always reachable by email, even on vacation, and very responsive when we sent a message. He contacted us in the middle of our stay to know how everything was going, which shows that he DOES take care of his tenants.
The flat is ideally situated, in the very animated neighborhood of Lavapiés. Lots of bars and restaurants around, and lots of places at a walking distance from the apartment (we took the subway only once). We had a great and big grocery store very close (a two storey "Carrefour Market" facing the Lavapiés subway station) for those who wish to cook a bit, but honestly, you'll want to go outside and experiment Spanish streets and food until late at night. La Latina neighborhood is very close, as well as Tirso de Molina. Be sure not to miss the Rastro flea market, every Sunday until 3-4 pm, about 5 minutes walking from the apartment. A nice small interior market is also just close to the flat on Calle de Embajadores, across Calle Tribulete, and on weekends, it's quite a nice experience for tapas eating, with lots of local people gathering for a drink or something to eat. We were lucky enough to be there for the "Fiestas de la Virgen de las Palomas", first around the Lavapiés subway station, then moved out to La Latina neighborhood. A great experience if you want to understand the meaning of the word "party" in Spain!
Final words, Madrid is a great city to discover. Never have we felt unsecured, or seen any aggressive behaviours around us. And people were also very nice to us (true that speaking Spanish does help a bit). Bring some comfortable walking shoes, and go out exploring the city by yourselves!
Thank you very much Miguel for a wonderful stay, we will rent again your flat for sure if we do come back someday to you wonderful city of Madrid!
Hélène and Patrick from Montreal, Canada.
Wonderful apartment, and very easy and good communication. Located in an area close to everything. Recommended!
Miguel nos sorprendió gratamente con "cositas" para el desayuno.
El apartamento es muy cómodo y nos gustó la decoración.
La ubicación es buena, cercana al metro y con mucho ambiente para salir de cañitas por la noche.
We had the best time in Madrid. The entire experience was wonderful. Miguel's place is perfect... simple, extremely clean, and spacious. He was kind enough to greet us when we arrived and showed us around, how to work all the appliances, etc. He also graciously left us some goodies for breakfast and snacks. The location is excellent, in a hip neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars, very close to two different metro stops, and walking distance from Museo Reina Sophia and the Prado. Madrid is a great city that knows how to celebrate good food, family, and culture. We loved our stay here and will definitely be coming back, and highly recommend Miguel's home. Thank you Miguel!
On arrival, Miguel's friend met us at the apartment and showed us where to find everything. The apartment was very clean and pleasant. The neighborhood is good and many tourist attractions are within walking distance.
The apartment was lovely, clean and neat with lots of daylight. Well-equipped kitchen and fridge has bread, butter and jam for breakfasts! The neighbourhood is quaint, with a great variety of restaurants. Location was convenient and mercado San Anton is within walking distance. Great local market! We had an 18-month toddler along with us and the apartment was quite child friendly and having a lift in the building is a god sent for we also had our stroller with us.
All in all, a great place to stay! Thank u Miguel.
Wir waren zu dritt und haben ein tolles Wochenende in Madrid und in Miguels Wohnung verbracht.
Alles war sehr unkompliziert, Miguel hat sich bei check-in und check-out ganz nach unseren Wünschen gerichtet.
Die Wohnung ist sehr nett, sehr, sehr sauber und man hat alles was man braucht.
Die Gegend um die Wohnung ist sehr lebendig, nebenan ist ein Markt und gleich über die Straße eine tolle Bar.
Miguels Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert, jederzeit wieder.
