The apartment is a quiet, secluded idyll in the heart of Madrid. It offers a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding landscape from an intimate rooftop terrace.
The apartment is on the fourth floor of a historic building from the late 19th century. It has been completely renovated and redecorated in 2014.
The main living space is a spacious, living / dining area, which is directly connected to a large terrace, through a large sliding glass door.
The total living area is 90 square meters, including upstairs, downstairs and a 20 square meters terrace. The first floor contains a living room, American-style open-plan kitchen, a bathroom, and a bedroom.
A wrought-iron and wood staircase leads to the second floor, which contains two more bedrooms.
Each of the 3 bedrooms is endowed with a double bed and 1 single bed, so that the flat can host up to 9 people.
The terrace extends directly from the living room, offering a lovely view across the rooftops of the city with a view of the nearby bell tower of one of Madrid’s historic churches. The front part of the terrace is teak. There is a large bathtub and shower on the terrace with both hot and cold water, and at the end of the terrace a built-in barbeque.
It is a very bright, colorful, and extremely quiet apartment—cool in the summer thanks to well-insulated walls and the circulation of fresh air from many windows, and warm in the winter thanks to three automatic electric heaters that distribute warmth throughout the first (2 heaters) and second (1 heater) floors. The apartment is decorated mainly with IKEA furnishings and has a fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, as well as washing and drying machines.
Free wi-fi available.

Vin was not present during our stay, but made sure that we felt welcome and had arranged everything for us. He was very helpful in given us great tips on what to do and where to eat - he certainly was a great part in making sure our stay in Madrid was a great one. The apartment is also located in a great area and very close to all the important sites.
However we felt that the price and the quality of the apartment did not quite match. A good overhaul would make this apartment a great place for the price.
We stayed at this apartment for 2 nights and enjoyed the space. It is a long way up the stairs to the top floor, so it will not suit everyone. The space is clean and the roof terrace a real asset. I would have liked to have been told where the bedding was, we couldn't find it to begin with (upstairs chest of draws for this).
The location is great, walked everywhere and never had too many problems finding it on our return.
I received lots of warnings about noise, we didn't hold back with conversation and had no problems, we of course respected the wishes of the host where ever possible.
Vin is a friendly and helpful host, check-in and check-out went flawless, he gave us great restaurant tips and recommended us places to see in Madrid.
The apartment is at the very heart of Madrid, everything is in walking distance. Although central, it is quiet at night. The apartment was decent and clean, and the roof terrace looks nice, although you shouldn't use it at night with respect for the neighbours.
We had problems with the hot water in the apartment two times, which made it impossible for all five of us to get a warm shower, but Vin was quick to help get the boiler back on.
Vin is a helpful host and the roof top is an amazing experience in Madrid, the view is awesome, the location is also great, highly recommended.
This was the perfect spot for Madrid!
Vin was an excellent host; he was quick to respond on short notice, prompt in meeting us, and explained everything clearly.
The location was safe, quaint, and convenient; walking distance to train station and plaza major, and only one block from the flower square that had a metro stop, grocery store, ATMs, taxis, and excellent local restaurants.
The flat was quiet, comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities needed; the kitchen has a refrigerator, sink, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, water boiler, coffee implements, dishes, pots and pans, and a variety of utensils. There is also a clothes washer and dryer.
There is plenty of space for sleeping with comfortable beds and a couple couches; three bedrooms - one downstairs, two upstairs. The terrace is a nice addition with a table and chairs for enjoying a glass of wine under the stars.
Overall, we were very pleased with the stay. We will stay here again next time in Madrid. And we definitely recommend to all!
All in all a good place. The door system is a little tricky and cost me a plenty penny. FYI don't leave the key in the door on the inside then step out with the other key. The terrace was nice with a small tub and shower overlooking a Cathedral. There is no elevator and you are on the top floor so keep that in mind when booking.
The appartment is great, perfect location. For a week-end we have walked evrywhere, no need for metro nor taxi. The design and style of the appartement is as nice as it looks on the airbnb pictures and I agree, it is worth the 4th floors without elevator !!
The terrace gives a very different point of view of Madrid, from the roofs ! It is so appreciated to take the aperitif/breakfast on the terrace and chat with your friends from "above the city".
We were 6 adult women coming for a friendly week-end and the venue was very appropriate as it is really an "open" loft (no doors to rooms, but curtains).
It was really appreciated to have easy check-IN/OUT, especially for the departure, we could leave the luggages as the flat until 5pm.
Only 2 negative points would be :
- the "formalities" to come in (name of all guests, contracts...) could be simpler
- neighbours quite "stressed" : a note on the door coming back from our afternoon Madrid
visit, knocking on the bed-rooms walls at 1am and were going to bed. We have respected the houses rules with no party at the flat and being cautious at night. We think noise isolation is limited especially when hosting more than 2 guests. However, it seems normal to chat and enjoy the week-end without music nor exageration when you come to Madrid !
Anyway, I will definitely recommend this place even with 2 those "small" limits, everything else is great !
