We spent a wonderful week in the apartment. Nice size, in a great area in Madrid. Good Attention to detail and had all the extras that made it a home away from home. Would definitely (website hidden). Don't miss a wonderful restaurant on the street corner for tapas.
Beautiful place. Great location. Thoughtful welcome amenities and attention to detail. Best of home and hotel.
Karin's place was great - it is in a lovely safe neighbourhood that is convenient for 2 of the underground lines. The apartment was immaculate and well equipped. It was great to have 3 bathrooms as we were 5 friends sharing. The double beds were huge and very comfortable. Unfortunately we had a situation where we were locked out of the apartment, but Karin was on hand straight away and helped as much as she could. She was also extremely communicative before our trip, and helped us book an airport transfer as our flight landed late at night. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
Amazing apartment with everything you might possibly need. We had an amazing time in Madrid and a big part of it was due to the apartment. Karin was great from the beginning to the end. We really appreciate being able to leave our luggage until later in the afternoon... The location is superb with really good options to eat right around the corner.... The apartment is so nice and tastefully decorated that you wanna spend as much time inside as walking around. We were a family of 5 adults and a little baby very well accommodate. Our little one loved the toys!
Thanks for making our trip to Madrid even better. Can't wait to go back again!
Es un "señor" piso, de construcción sólida, con espacios reconfortantes, amplio, acogedor, en un estado inmejorable. El mobiliario contribuye a dar esa sensación de piso noble con una estética contenida. Tal como se anuncia, la casa está equipada hasta el más mínimo detalle para poder hacer vida en ella. Nosotros no hemos aprovechado todas las facilidades, pues hemos pasado sólo tres días en Madrid, con una agenda apretada fuera de casa; pero habría sido un placer poder estar más tiempo en el apartamento, es un lugar en el que apetece hacer vida.
El piso está muy limpio. Las camas son grandes y cómodas, el vecindario es tranquilo y está bien abastecido de tiendas para comprar, cafeterías y lugares en los que comer. Está situado en un lugar céntrico y bien comunicado con el centro histórico de la ciudad.
Tanto en la organización del viaje, como a la hora de entrar y salir del apartamento, todo han sido facilidades por parte de Karen.
He pasado el fin de semana con otras cinco personas de la familia, casi todos setentañeros, para quienes era su primera experiencia con Airbnb. A pesar de que eran algo reticentes, han quedado sorprendidos y encantados por el lugar y la profesionalidad con la que funciona el sistema.
Recomiendo este alojamiento para disfrutar de una visita en familia a Madrid y para todo aquél que desee disfrutar de un lujo de piso.
Abbiamo alloggiato in questo appartamento dal 31 dicembre al 4 gennaio 2015. Appartamento molto pulito, spazioso e dotato di tutti i comfort. La cucina è ben attrezzata con a disposizione anche piccoli generi alimentari (zucchero, caffè, the, etc etc). La signora dell’agenzia è stata molto gentile: abbiamo trovato l’uva per festeggiare il capodanno! L’appartamento ha a disposizione 3 camere da letto con 3 bagni e questo ci ha permesso, essendo due coppie con un bambino, di poter convivere senza alcun problema di spazio, rispettando ritmi e abitudini individuali. Ottima la temperatura dell’appartamento, fin troppo caldo. Il quartiere è molto tranquillo, nelle vicinanze ottimi negozi, tra cui il mercato De La Paz, un Carrefour, fruttivendolo, pasticcerie nonché ristoranti per le tutte le tasche. Consiglio vivamente questo appartamento nonché Madrid!

About the Host, Home At Homes
Home at Homes was created by two people: Karin Wallis, half English and half Swedish has lived most of her life in Madrid and Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano down to the marrow, has lived in Seville all of his life. We created Home at Homes as we wish to do something different: take peoples charming homes and transform them into rentals, keeping the magic and charm the owners created when they built their home but at the same time making it comfortable and adequate for our clients such as giving them plenty of empty cupboard space, ensuring the only food in the fridge is the one of our welcome hamper and making sure everything is working correctly and is sparkling clean so that when you arrive, the property will feel like instant home to you too. There are no two properties alike, nor are there two guest exactly alike but we do trust we will have the right home for you.
Home at Homes fue creada por Karin Wallis, mitad inglesa y mitad sueca ha vivido casi toda su vida en Madrid y Nono de Barco, 100% Sevillano hasta la médula, ha vivido en Sevilla toda su vida. Creamos Home at Homes dado que queríamos hacer algo diferente: transformar la acogedora casa de un propietario a una propiedad para alquilar manteniendo la magia y el encanto que los propietarios metieron en ella pero a su vez adecuándola para que sea cómodo para nuestros clientes. No hay dos propiedades iguales, ni hay dos clientes exactamente iguales pero confiamos en tener una casa de su agrado.
