About This Listing
My name is Isabelle, I live in a small flat right on the 5 th without lift in the CENTER of Madrid. In the quarter letters " Barrio de las letras". We are close to Sol, the main meeting point, right in the historic center of Madrid. You can and you should walk everywhere to many sights like Prado Museum, Reiña Sofia, Thyssen mueum, Plaza mayor, Retiro Park et.... The surroundings are very lovely, unique in its own style because the little shops / library / café place are unique. I rent the ROOM. So you are welcome to contact.
The room has a double bed, it could be for 2 people. In that case a extra cost will charge to the second person. the extra charge will depend of the period of the year.
Our stay at Isabelle's place was really good! She was really helpful and we were very glad she recommended a day trip to Toledo because it was definitely a highlight. The location was very convenient and most of what we wanted to see was within walking distance. There is a metro stop on the corner so it was easy to get anywhere that was a little further. The space itself is very compact so if you are bringing a ton of luggage it might be a challenge. We just had our backpacks so we were fine. However my boyfriend is 6'5" so the low ceiling and tight space were a little more difficult for him, but it was OK. Isabelle works during the day so we had the place to ourself in the day time but we were out for most of our stay so we didn't spend a lot of time at the apartment. All in all it was a fantastic stay!
Isabelle is a very nice host, she helped us a lot with things to do, gave very useful advises about sights and places to go for lunch or dinner. She provided two detailed plans of city, it was very nice. We could even let our bags in the apartment and collect it late in the evening, but only because the room was free for the next night. Really sweet, as a rule you can't wait for such help at airbnb hosts. And she speaks very good English, which was such a relief after our stay in the southern Spain!
The room itself is really tiny. There is a bed and some place to walk around it, but not many. I was happy we didn't have much luggage, there is no place for suitcases. As we spent at Isabelle's only one night it was not a big problem, but I think, it wouldn't be very comfortable in case of a longer stay.
There are a lot of admiration in references about location, and they are so true! It is perfect! Everything is very near, most important sights, nice plazas with lovely cafes, metro station, train station... This location is perfect as a base for exploring Madrid.
We stayed 2 days in Isabelle's house, She is so kind and let us knew amazing places for traveling! The location is perfect, 15minutes walk from Atocha station, you can go anywhere on foot.
A very kind and sympathetic woman, all told. The apartment is clean and comfortable. In the heart of the city! I loved it!
The location is perfect. The house is very small and very full! We found it uncomfortable to be sleeping in her mini-bedroom while she slept on the couch(bed) in the living room. If I would have known there was only one bedroom, I would not have booked. Too expensive for so little privacy and space
Isabelle is super helpful, the aparment is in really nice location, is small but nice decored
Isabelle was very friendly and I felt I knew her for a long time. She had a map ready for me and advised the must see location marking them on the map as well as giving informaiton about them. The room was very quiet and comfortable. Perfect locaiton that you can walk to all the major sightseeing locations.
