Charming & brand new apartment (year of construction 2010) that includes a double bedroom and one single bedroom, 2 bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and an outside patio/terrace.
In the single bedroom a small bed, for a little kid could easily be squeezed in.
The apartment is located on the edge of Arturo Soria (high-end residential), parallel with Calle Alaca (more popular). The place is very quiet (triple glazing) and is, among others, ideal for a family with kids, given the outside patio.(20 m2)
It’s a lively popular neighborhood, with severals bars (including an Irish pub with a popular terrace) and restaurants , a handful of supermarkets and a Metro entrance (Line 5 or the Green Line), only 150 meters away
A real asset is that the apartment includes 1 free parking space, which can an interesting option (in case you are traveling around Spain by car or visiting Ifema or one of the many companies that are headquartered in this area, e.g. IBM, Bosh, Atos etc.) in a city were finding parking space can be real nightmare and you easily pay up to 20 euros for a night in a car park.
The apartment includes WIFI, TV, a cosy outside patio/terrace with teak furniture, central heating & silent top-end air conditioning.
Although a few kilometers away from the city centre, it is really well located. Close to the airport (10 minute by taxi or 25 minutes only by public transport) and close to IFEMA, a leading Trade Fair center in Europe.
Its located 150 meters from the metro station ¨Ciudad lineal¨; Line 5/Linea 5 takes you in 5 minutes to Las Ventas (bull fighting arena), 10 minutes to the stylish Salamanca area, 15 minutes to Alonso Martinez (Malasaña) /Chueca and 20 to Callao (Gran Via area) Opera/La Latina.
The flat is a 5 minute walk away from the beautiful Quinta de los Molinos Park, perhaps one of the best kept secrets in Madrid (especially when cherry blossoms pop late February/March; simply breathtaking)
Self –service breakfast can be arranged for. (5 Euros per person). Clean towels and sheets included.
We had an amazing time in Madrid. The flat was great, really modern and welcoming. The flat isnt that big, but the distribution of the rooms is really functional. Especially the 2 bathrooms make life much easier. Its a little bit outside, but you can go to the center easily with the metro. Its not far. And there are still supermarkets and some restaurants close. Especially when you travel by car and need a parking lot, its perfect. We definitly would/will book it again.
L'appartement est conforme aux photos: très propre, moderne, bien équipé ... c'est un appartement très agréable et calme.
Le quartier comporte des commerces, restaurants, bars, supermarchés et le métro se trouve à proximité de l'appartement.
Je le recommande!
Wim Has a great little flat 200 metres from the Metro which takes you straight into the centre in 25-30 minutes. The car parking space is snug to say the least but it is a space and its free !!!!. I will certainly look to stay at Wim's place again next time I am in Madrid.
We loved Wilhem's flat. We stayed there for a week. It is very well equipped with washing machine, wifi, dish washer, oven etc.
The location is great- central Madrid easily accessible by metro or bus, very close to the major motorways for travel by car, great local shops and restaurants.
Great experience. Met Willem. Good guy, knows the area very well and was helpful with real estate information as I was in this area to look for apartments .
The apartment itself is new, fully equipped and well light (even though it was rainy most of my stay). Comfortable bed, internet works great - important as I had to work.
Balcony is really nice, but did not take advantage because of the weather (winter and always raining). But it looks really nice!
Location is not the center of the city, but it is very close to ciudad lineal metro which gets you to gran via and or la latina in under 30 mins. Taxi ride from the city is 10min max (night traffic) on Alcala from the center.
Commercial center 5 min (website hidden) is quiet.
Basically it's a great place for the price and I had no problems and I frequented the city often via metro/taxi.
Pasamos una semana fantástica en el apartamento de Wim. El apartamento es tal y como aparece en la fotografía, la localización excepcional (cerca de metro y de supermercados) además de tranquila
Aunque no pude conocer a Wim personalmente porque estaba fuera, él dejo todo preparado para que Alberto nos mostrara el apartamento y nos entregara las llaves. Gracias a Wim por su preocupación y a Alberto!!
Sin duda os recomiendo este apartamento!!
I had a perfect stay at Wim's place. The flat is really good. It's well furnished, clean, close to Metro, and it has a safe parking spot. Nothing else to wish for while staying in Madrid. Would surely stay here again, don't miss it.
This was my first experience using airbnb and I couldn't pick a better first place to stay. Wim's flat was warm and cozy, nice neighborhood and very close to public transportation (which made it very easy to get around Madrid).
This is a very spacious, well-equipped apartment super close to the Metro and two supermarkets; this Metro line is close to all the good stuff, so the location really can't be beat. After living out of a suitcase for a couple of weeks, it was really nice having an extra room to store our things.
Bed is very comfortable and there is lots of hot water and super fast internet. The roller shades are absolute genius since they create a blackout effect and block all light - great for a good night's sleep! The neighbourhood is cool and makes you feel more like a local and less like a tourist.
Wim is a very nice host and walked us through the details of the apartment and the nearby amenities.
The sheets and towels were clean, but the overall cleanliness could have been improved upon.
Overall, this is a great place to stay.
Our experience was really positive. Wim's apartment is cozy, elegant, well furnished and incredibly quiet. If you're looking for a place to stay, in a relaxing environment, near (with subway) to the center, but also located in a place where you can find all the goodies you need, this house is for you. Perfection is not human, though, and we noticed that there aren't curtains on the windows (at the moment we're writing) - and at the street level this isn't good. But this is a very minor problem: you will find a TV set, a wireless internet connection, a washing machine, a dish-washing machine, a complete kitchen, an excellent and modern fridge, even an iron... Who will need more?
