About this listing
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.
After midnight voices should be dimmed when sitting outside on the terrace. NO smoking in the house. Smokers can have a cigarette outside on the patio. When leaving the house during the day, switch heater to 15 C.
Great space. Fastest wifi ever. Functional kitchen with washer for laundry. Comfy beds and English channels on TV. Great water pressure in showers. A/C works wonderfully. Close to metro station, bakery, bars and grocery stores. No complaints. Highly recommended.
Excellent place to stay when visiting Madrid, especially when you've got a car to park safely in city. Very clean, two bathrooms, towels and perfect wifi. Willem is a welcoming host and gives info about the city when requested. Metro (ciudad lineal) is a less than 5 min walk away.
Was close to all three entries of Central Linudad metro station and takes about 15 minutes to get into the 'main' part. We got taxis back late at night easily which were about 12 euros.
The apartment has much needed and enjoyed air con as well as a lovely terrace.
Everything inside is modern and clean, very spacious. All you would want and need.
Wilem was great, his friend met us to give us keys but the host was in touch over email as needed.
Willem s'est montré très accueillant et nous a prodigué de nombreuses informations concernant les commerces et visites du quartier. Tout était comme indiqué sur la fiche de l'appartement. L'appartement est idéalement situé pour tout déplacement dans Madrid. Nous avons effectué un très agréable séjour. Nous ferons très certainement une seconde réservation auprès de notre hôte.
Le logement était conforme à l'annonce.
Belle terrasse avec soleil l'après-midi et logement proche d'une station de métro.
Le propriétaire nous attendait lors de notre arrivée.
Les photos ne mentent pas du tout l'appartement est tres confortable et agréable. Pour quelques jours à Madrid en famille c'est l'endroit idéal et est facilement accesible en métro. Merci a Willem pour ses conseils et sa réactivité.
Willem met us at the designated time and spent a while showing us the apartment and telling us about great things to do in Madrid. He was very friendly. We loved the apartment —small but cozy. Very clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Easy to get to the Metro. The best part was the terrace. Nice to sit outside and enjoy some fresh air. We hope to come back to Madrid soon. It's an awesome city.
