The Space

Come to know our wonderful place at Madrid's Heart (Madrid de los Austrias is the oldest part of Madrid) at La Latina, perfect place to discover the most famous "cañas y tapas" from Madrid.

The apartment is really central, 5 minutes walk from Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. 10 minutes walk from the lively Gran Vía andand Chueca neighbourhood, the gay-friendly neighbourhood of the city. We are gay-friendly people :)
15-20 minutes walk from the Prado Museum and Reina Sofía Museum.
Simply perfect to know the city walking, but if you prefer you have the metro station La Latina and Tirso de Molina really close, less than 5 minutes walk, and many bus stops and a taxi stop too.

Sundays at Madrid you can't miss the Rastro if you are a lover of the antiques, vintage clothes, curios, forniture or if you're a collector. Rastro is the spanish version of Canden Town, Portobello or Les Puces.

The apartment have all you need for a nice stay:
Comfortable new bed (buy at september 2013) with viscolatex mattress, tv, internet portable wifi 3G (you can carry with you and have internet all time to check emails, maps, whatsapp, info about museums, restaurants, etc), information about Madrid, full kitchen with utensils, microwave, coffee pot, juicer, etc.
We have hairdryer and iron. Big closet with many space. Air conditioning and heating.

  • We had a lovely time at Angie's apartment in Madrid. The location is perfect. Close walking distance to the La Latino metro stop and (email hidden)ly area filled with cool tapas restaurants and bars. It's easy to walk to all the main areas of Madrid from this location. The apartment is perfect for a short stay and had everything we needed. Angie was lovely and super helpful. She gave us a recommendation for a place right over the road (green door!) which was the best place we visited.

  • Angie was a great host - was waiting outside for me as soon as I arrived. Her home is in the perfect neighborhood. I loved being able to go downstairs and have tapas - the entire city was walkable from her location!

  • The apartment is in a prime location on Calle CaVa Baja, which is a strip with a bunch of great restaurants and is covered by Rick Steves in his guide books. The apartment is a studio, with a queen sized bed, kitchenette, washer, and bathroom. It was great to be able to do laundry in the place. Angie provided everything: guide books, laundry soap, etc. She was also really responsive via text if we had any questions. The place has an A/C but we did not need to use it in June.

  • Angie was helpful, she arranged with me to meet at a time when we arrived and there she was with the keys and a recently cleaned flat. Stress free experience. Angie was helpful but not overbearing at all. The flat was simple but just what you need for a short stay. Right in a great part of town, I'd certainly go back there for a brief stay at this price. The bed was an absolute winner, firm, pocket sprung and really very very comfy. Flat was clean, clean towels, good shower. Perhaps a little less spacious than we imagined but in perfect order!

    Go to the cafe/restaurant right across the road. Best Gazpacho I ate. Really great in there!

  • Can't ask for a better location. Angie was an excellent host with very clear communication, and excellent local recommendations. The place worked perfectly for our stay and was exactly as pictured/described

  • Angie's apartment is in the best neighbourhood with lots of good places to eat and drink. It is little bit small, but lovely. The photos represent the flat very accurately. There were no surprises upon our arrival. It's warm and cosy, you can cook easily, and the shower always has warm water. The location is very central, easy to get to and from.
    Angie was very accommodating and was always available via email if we had any questions. We would recommend this apartment and definitely stay again in the future.

  • This small but sweet apartment was in a great location. Tapas bars are just outside the door, yet it is in the interior of the bldg so that makes it quiet.
    Absolutely no street noise. We walked to many of the attractions or took the metro. It was also very nice to have the 3G portable modem to carry around for wifi. Angie was a great host, attentive and accessible.

  • Localización inmejorable, y el apartamento es tal cual te lo encuentras en las fotos. Pese al bullicio de la calle, es increíble el silencio que hay en el interior. Muy recomendado. Ah! No olvidar visitar la Muralla Cristiana que se encuentra en el patio interior del edificio.

  • Angie's place is incredible place to stay in Madrid. The street is full of good restaurants and cool bars. Very close to Saint Miguel Market, that is the most incredible place in Madrid. The bed is very confortable! Got to Barcelona's best place easily. Metro, supermarket, backery, everything close. Angie received us. She is very kind and help us to schedule taxi to airport. I highly recommend to any traveler profile!!!
