Cosy flat in the centre of Madrid.
City centre flat in arty, bohemian, multi-cultural Lavapiés walking distance to 'the Art Triangle' of El Reina Sofia Museum, The Prado and the Thyssen. All major attractions are walk-able such as La Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace, Sol, etc. Lavapiés is great for tapas bars and Indian Restaurants. Lively bar scene from rock, soul, jazz, to gay & lesbian. Flat is tucked away in a quieter back street (no bars). South facing and very sunny. Bedroom with view to the street.

Lavapies is old Madrid with a large multi-cultural community. As such you can find plenty of Indian, South American and African restaurants as well as authentic Spanish tapas bars.
2 different metro mines within just a few minutes walk from the flat (lines 1 & 3). Several buses routes pass through the vicinity.
My wife and I stayed in Mike's apartment in March 2014. Mike was extremely accommodating with check-in (given that we were arriving late and he was out of town), The apartment is exactly as described and portrayed in his listing. We found there to be ample room. Very close to the Lavapies metro station, but honestly the location is such that it's very easy to walk to many of Madrid's numerous attractions without ever using the Metro. There are also SO many bars/restaurants available within several blocks. Our only qualm was that it was difficult to get two warm showers in the morning (despite attempting to be quite quick) as the hot water tank is relatively small; that being said this is noted in the house. We would definitely stay again if in Madrid!
Mike help as a lot with sightseeing and entertainment in Madrid. The flat was in geri communicative place very close to centre. Thanks a lot for everything Mike.
Perfect small place in the heart of Madrid. Two double beds makes ideal for groups of people that need to spend a few days in Madrid.
Por segunda vez fui muy feliz en el piso de Mike, es perfecto para estar en Madrid, tranquilo, bonito, bien situado, con todas las comodidades, cerca del Paseo del Prado, de Sol, de Atocha y de los barrios que mas me gustan. La cama es increíble, se duerme bien y en paz. Lo recomiendo 100%. Gracias Mike por tu hospitalidad. Espero volver a mi segundo hogar en Madrid.
An adorable apartment in a great location! I walked everywhere around the neighborhood and there were restaurants, super markets, hardware stores, metro, etc within a couple of blocks of this apartment. The apartment itself was comfortable and nicely decorated. Any questions I had were answered immediately and I felt that Mike and his colleague Ed (which is who I actually met in person) were there for anything I could possibly need. Thanks so much!! Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time in this flat. 2 very comfortable bedrooms, everything needed inside and just great location that in such big city as Madrid we did not use metro.
Thanks a lot for being a nice host, Mike and Ed :)
Loved this gorgeous apartment! Was cosy and warm, the beds were so comfortable, and it's in a great location. Mike made sure we had everything we needed. Our stay was so enjoyable and hassle free. Thanks mike!
Mike was very kind and helpful when making the booking. Then, he helped with giving loads of information about the appartment, and where to go, what to do. He is very reliable and i felt comfortable going to Madrid to his place. When we were there, he even gave information through email and sms! Really perfect!! I would recommend Mike's place for everyone!!
Mike was an excellent host. Very communicative from booking to check out. Place was as described and very convenient to public transportation. Take note of his guidebook---great recommendations!
I never met Mike in person but he was the most organized and professional host I have used on Airbnb so far. His correspondence were prompt, curious, and informative. He had all the information and direction well laid out on his profile. His directions from the airport were flawless. My only mistake was in using (website hidden)maps and not following Mike's directions. The location and apartment were perfect for what I was looking for. I only wish I'd had more time in Madrid.
