Description

The Space

PLEASE HAVE A VERIFIED PROFILE BEFORE YOU BOOK WITH ME. Thanks. A cosy 44 sq metre flat located in the lively, central barrio of
Lavapies. The flat consists of two bedrooms, one which is exterior and has views to the street. The other is an interior bedroom and both have standard double beds (135cm x 190cm)
Cosy salón with a TV that can be changed to original version language for most US/UK programmes. Kitchen and bathroom were renovated in November 2014. The flat is located in the city centre, and as such, space is at a premium. Please do not expect new world dimensions.
If you need to do a load of laundry, please ask for user instructions first.

The Neighborhood

This city centre flat is located in arty, bohemian, multi-cultural Lavapiés which is walking distance to 'the Art Triangle' of El Reina Sofia Museum, The Prado, and The Thyssen. All other major attractions are walkable such as La Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace, Sol, El Parque del Retiro, El Rastro Flea Market etc. Lavapiés is great for tapas bars and Indian Restaurants as well as independent theatres and art galleries. There is a lively bar scene from rock, soul, and jazz to gay & lesbian. There is also a burgeoning coffee shop scene, most with free Wi-Fi and books for sale. This is a multi-cultural and safe area but if cultures/colours other than your own bother you, then perhaps Lavapies isn't for you. The flat is tucked away in a quieter back street (no bars). It's south facing and very sunny. Main bedroom has a view of the street.
The flat is within minutes' walk to two metro lines (1 & 3) and a 15-minute walk to Atocha Train station which is ideal for excursions out of the city. (Toledo, Alcala de Henares, El Escorial, Aranjuez)

The following attractions can be reached on (URL HIDDEN) times are taken from a popular internet map/direction search.

Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía: 10mins (Picasso, Dalí, Bacon, Miró)
El Museo de Arte Thyssen-Bornemisza: 13 mins (Holbein, Monet, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh)
Museo Nacional del Prado: 13 mins (Goya, Rafael, Velázquez)
CaixaForum: 10 mins (exhibitions for small entry fee)
La Casa Encendida: 6 mins (free exhibitions)
La Puerta del Sol: 14 mins
La Plaza Mayor: 14 mins
Royal Palace: 19 mins
See the guidebook for free entry times to the museums
Lavapiés is the oldest, most dynamic part of Madrid and I'm sure you will love it as much as I do!

Getting Around

2 different metro stations within just a few minutes walk from the flat (lines 1 & 3) Anton Martin and Lavapies respectively. Several bus routes pass through the vicinity. Bus number 27 which stops in Ronda de Atocha (6 mins on foot) goes to Santiago Bernabeu Football Stadium.
24 hour indoor public parking garage 30 metres from the flat in Calle Primavera
20€ for 24 hours.

There is also a public Bike hire scheme (Bici Madrid) which offers electric Bicycles at a brilliantly affordable price.

There are a number of pick up and docking stations within meters of the flat and an excellent way to explore the city in the open air and an environmentally friendly manner (take a look at Bici Madrid's website for more details).
If you are travelling with heavy suitcases, you may want to consider taking the metro from the airport to Lavapies metro station which has a lift to street level. This way does require two line changes. If you get the bus to Atocha, you can get the metro to Anton Martin but this station has no lift.
