About this listing
My house is in the center on Madrid, rigth at Malasaña area, the modern and trendiest district in Madrid. The house is located in a very quiet street, being great located parallel to the main street, but nice and calm in the nights, when pubs and restaurants all around the area are opened until late.
Its a great neighborhood for shopping vintage and fashion clothes and having lots of fun at cafes and terraces.
The apartment is big (100m2), faced to the street at the living room with two balconies, the rooms are located right after the living room, one to the left and the other to the right.
The apartment's living room is bright and spacious, divided in two areas, one for chilling and the other one for dinning.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the facilities (fridge, oven, microwave, washing-dryer machine, toaster, ketle, iron, etc).
A 20€ cleanning fee will be charged at the comming-in, in cash, (since reservations made from 27th of May 2013).

We were met and greeted by Gustavo. He was very helpful. It's an interesting and active neighborhood. The apartment is as described in terms of equipment and supplies.
It was a great pleasure to host Gail and her husband. They stayed in my apartment for two weeks and they were a wonderful couple. I only wished treir time in my aparent would have ended up differently. I can only say im terribly sorry and that i did my best to give them support and help. I hope they felt it and are okay. I will try my best to get the most back from the insurance.
El tiempo en el apartamiento de Laura era genial. Ella nos contactó antes del viaje para planificar nuestra llegada de una forma muy bien organizada pero tampoco demasiado complicado y no hubo ningún problema aunque el vuelo fue restrasado.
Así disfrutábamos de unos días muy buenas en su piso - un piso superguay con un ambiente maravilloso - y se sentía un poco como estar "en casa". Todo está muy bien ocupado y muy limpio.
El lugar del piso en el barrio de Malasana está perfecto como está situado en una calle tranquila pero sin embargo a dos minutos de unas plazas y calles con bares y tiendas interesantes.
Muchas gracis para todo!
Un abrazo - LEA
A week before our trip I reached out to Laura and she was extremely helpful by providing maps and she answered all my questions.
The day we checked in Laura was not available, but Gustavo was there to greet us. He was very nice, polite, answered all our questions and went above and beyond in helping us get information on the Renfe, as we needed to take that when we checked out.
The apartment itself is bigger than it seems. I found it to be centrally located. We practically walked everywhere and felt safe in the neighborhood. There were tons of restaurants and tourist attraction very near by.
Just a couple little things: one, even though the apartment is not on a main street, it is still very busy and at times loud. We heard our neighbors often, having what I will say, was a very good time. The other little issue was that there wasn’t enough toilet paper left for us, however there was a supermarket around the corner so purchased our own.
Aside from these two things Laura and Gustavo were amazing! Thank you for all your help. It was appreciated. I was very pleased with the location, the size of the apartment and the area.
Laura is a perfect host. Communication was good, with reactivity and clear. She was really available.
Check-in was more than perfect. Laura's friend greeted us warmly, even helping us to get your luggage to the apartment. He gave us some advices to live in their apartment. He was kind with us. This apartment is perfectly situated in the heart of Madrid, in a quiet street. The area around is bubbling, and is representative of the local lifestyle.
The apartment is beautiful, spacious and pleasant. The mentioned facilities are in good condition.
We enjoyed our trip because of this apartment and we will be back to Madrid in this apartment.
We had a wonderful stay in Madrid, the apartment was lovely; spacious, clean and very central. I would love to stay here again. Thank you!
Staying at Laura's was a pleasant experience. The apartment was cosy. The location was great as it was just about 10 minutes walk to the city center. The apartment was quite well equipped so we had no problem preparing breakfast. The surroundings of the apartment were just right as it gave us a good feel of what Madrid is like - it was fairly quiet yet not far from the bustling city nearby. The suburb has its fair share of bars and restaurants so you did not have to walk far to get a taste of Madrid's nightlife. Unfortunately I did not get to meet Laura but her friend was there to help us with our luggage and get us organized. All in all the stay was good. Thank you Laura and Gustav.
