Ideal Apartment for couples in a quiet place in Madrid Center (Chamberí neighbourhood). It consist of a spacious bedroom with double bed, independent kitchen, a living room (with two couchs where one person may sleep comfortably) and a bathroom with shower.
The style is new, simple and functional, fully reformed in 2011 with all new furniture and equipements.
The guest will find a quiet and confortable flace for rest and close to everything for study or touristic purposes.
The neighbourhood is full of restaurants and bars with terraces opened in the street from spring to autumn. Close to groceries and supermarkets. Fuencarral street is in the neighbourhood one of the hot points for shoping in Madrid.
Most of the people has visited until this time were students of university masters in IE Instituto de Empresa, Universidad Complutense de Madrid or Universsidad Autonoma. Also families learning spanish on vacation in summertime and christmas. Most of them in long term stays.
Excelent location from where you can arrive most of the Madrid center by feet or if is preferred by Metro (spanish underground) using Line 1 or Line 2. The apartment is 5 minutes long from underground stations of Quevedo, Iglesia and Canal. From Canal the Line 7 is available too and links with Barajas Airport via Avenida de America in 30 minutes.
Don´t smoke, No Pets, Leave the house as clean as possible.
La experiencia fue muy buena. El piso está muy bien ubicado y Diego fue muy amable. Definitivamente lo tomaría otra vez.
Diego met us as arranged and showed us around the flat. Excellent position for shops and Metro lines. We have stayed in this flat previously and everything is so well appointed and clean.
Diego is very welcoming and helpful. We had to contact him as the bathroom light wouldn't work. He came round straight away and sorted the problem.
We would recommend Diego's flat to anyone.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
La experiencia en casa de Diego fue genial.
La casa esta super bien situada, a escasos cinco minutos de malasana y a 10 de gran via andando.
La casa es una planta baja (aun así bastante luminosa), bastante limpia y con una decoración bastante chic, incorporando uno de sus hobbies la música en la decoración.
Diego fue muy amable,nos saco de paseo por madrid y nos ayudo en todo lo que necesitamos , claramente lo recomiendo.
Diego y su compañero nos facilito todo. Si es verdad que el alojamiento está bastante usado y no cuenta con la luz que aparecen en las fotos por tratarse de un apartamento interior. Las camas son bastante incómodas (un compañero durmió practicamente en el suelo) y aunque estaba limpio daba sensación de gastado (paredes con refregones de mucho uso, etc.). La ubicación es ideal para visitar Madrid o estar cerca del centro, aunque si vas en coche como nosotros la nueva ley de estacionamiento te hace pagar en zona azul o verde un máximo de 4 horas y tienes que estar cambiando el vehículo de barrio. Es decir, aunque pagas debes sacarlo si no te sancionan. Restaurantes, bares y tiendas todos los que quieras.
All sufficiently reliable, very friendly host Diego, was always ready to help.
I stayed here for 2.5 months and was very pleased. Apartment is very spacious for a 1-bedroom and in a great neighborhood - lots of great restaurants and bars nearby and very well-connected by foot or metro. Feels very safe. Nice TV and sofas in the living area. Bathroom is very small and lighting is not great. Water pressure and shower are awesome, but the shower is tiny. Good water heater, although back-to-back showers may run out of hot water. Kitchen is small, but has all the essentials. No oven, but a two-burner stovetop. Microwave is small, but works well. There is a patio area off the kitchen, which is nice for drying clothes outside on the two drying racks provided - not really a place to hang out, however. The way it is set up, the kitchen table can only accommodate one person. Good, small refrigerator with practically no freezer space. Bed is very comfortable, with lots of drawer space in the bedroom and a clothes rack and clothes hangers for hanging clothes. No AC, but lots of windows. Two wall-mounted heating units and space heaters for the winter. Apartment is on the ground floor, so even though there are many windows, there's not much natural light let into the apartment, especially the bedroom. Diego was very responsive and helpful - a great host!
For a short term stay, this apartment is perfect! Out of the hustle and bustle of Sol and the Plaza Mayor, well-maintained, and with all the comforts of home. Also great for a longer stay, although the lack of an oven, small bathroom, and little natural light can get old after a while. I would definitely recommend the apartment and Diego as a host!

Hi I´m Diego and I have few apartments and studios in my street of Madrid Centre. Is in Chamberí neighbourhood. I rented them for students, professional but mostly young people. I have lived in all the houses I listed and I live very close so I could help you with everything.
I love music (metal, dubstep, punk, merengue, spanish traditional music..), I love history and geography(I expend a lot of my time reading history in wikipedia and youtube documentaries), I like economics and enterpreneurial issues. And I´m activist promoting healthy and socialy sustainable lifestyles.
