About This Listing
If you want to feel like a real Madrid neighbour, our appartment is the place. The appartment is a penthouse located in a lively neighbourhood, Tirso de Molina and Lavapiés area. Our house is very silent, placed in a very quiet street, but very close to EL RASTRO (Madrid's Flea Market...), and also close to lots of Spanish, Asian and Arabic restaurants and bars to hang out. It is also close (15 minutes walking, 3 subway stations) to theaters and museums, like Reina Sofia and Caixaforum. The Prado and Thyssen museums are reachable by foot too. This apartment can be your home if you like multicultural ambiances and experience the genuine Madrid life. Our little gem is a cozy terrace perfect for the sunny days. Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, la Latina area or Austria's Madrid neighbourhood are reachable by foot from our place, wich is really in the main center of the Old Town.
The apartment is quiet, wood-beam-ceiling, good illumination by the night and much natural light by the day. The living area has two comfortable sofas (one of and a wood floor. There is a TV set and dining space with table and chairs.
The bathroom has a bath tub, shower, wash basin and toilet. It is a high quality bathroom with tiled walls. There are fresh towels for all the guests as well.
The apartment comes with A/C and heating; this is a great accommodation for any season of the year.
The apartment is equipped and WI-FI is available during your stay. Maps and a guide of Madrid and sorroundings will be available during your stay. We'll be happy to help you with any other thing you may need during your stay.
The room that we are renting is an attic room, with shelves to place your belongings. The guests room access is at the entrance of the appartmen. The appartment is in the fourth floor but we have an elevator, which is very unusual in the majority of buildings in the neighbourhood.
A/C in appartment, not in the room.
BREAKFAST INCLUDED in the price (bread, butter and jam, juice, coffee, tea, milk, cereal...)
We are a couple that loves to travel, and we use to travel in different ways. We swap our appartment, or a house that we have in Barcelona Old Town, we are users of AIRBNB too. We know the meaning of being guest, so we can help you whatever you need to know about Madrid and non-touristic places to visit... We have a 20 years old daughter, who loves meeting new people too, and a little and lovely dog called Gala (like Dali's wife).
We hope that you feel at home in our place, and that this experience helps you to discover more deeply this interesting city.
Hope to meet you soon!
Only common sense rules. What you would like for your own house. Not disturbing the neighbours at any time of the day and night is a must! And the most important thing: come ready to make the most of your trip!
We have a smoking area in the terrace.
This place, although a tight area, was very nice. You can't stand up in the attic, but that's not a big deal because the bathroom is close. Everything was clean and ready to go when we got there. Carlos and his family were extremely nice and the apartment was located in a very central spot, so site seeing on foot was very convenient and easy.
Carlos and Maria are a very friendly and helpful couple. We felt like being home during out visit at their place. They gave us a lot of insider tips where to go - so we got to know many lovely places. Their little dog Gala was very friendly, too - she always seemed to be happy to see us when coming home. The appartment is very nice and clean, we had a great time relaxing on the roof terrace (above the roofs of the quarter in the heart of Madrid). Whenever we´ll travel to Madrid again, we would prefer to stay there. Many greetings and kisses - hasta luego - Anita&Jörg ;-)
Carlos is a warm and generous person. The location of this place is awesome with a cute dog Gala! You can get to every sight easily on foot. We had a really great time stay at his place.
Carlos was very welcoming and greets you with a beaming smile. The room is not completely closed off to the rest of the apartment, but Carlos and his family were alway very respectful and quiet so it never felt like we were in each other's way. The location of the flat is very good, just 5 minutes walk from Puerta del Sol and with a metro stop just a minute away.
It should be noted that you can not fully stand up in the room, being as it is in the attic with slanted ceilings. But on the other hand this adds to its coziness and charm. The flat is in the 4th floor but has an elevator, so no worries there.
Carlos was very kind to let me help myself from the fridge for breakfast.
All considering I would return to Carlos' flat given the chance!
Carlos and his family were great hosts! The apartment was wonderful. Highly recommend!!

About the Host, Carlos
Hi, I'm from Barcelona but I'm living in Madrid since 2006. I love to travel, to visit and discover new places. I lived one year in Mexico and two years in Argentina. I'm a project and construction manager trying to survive in that crisis moment. I love meeting new people and I consider this way of sharing the best way to travel. Hope to see you soon!
