Just a few common sense rules apply; be respectful, be clean and careful, don´t be too noisy and basically do any other thing you would apply when sharing a flat with someone.
Having suffered some incidents with guests in the past, I´ve decided to include these rules but common sense is the most important one!
-Breakfast is included as a courtesy only until 12 p.m. This includes: coffee, tea, milk, cookies, bread, butter, jam and fruit and it is self-service. If you have any other preference, there is a supermarket around the corner that opens everyday until 10 pm. Please, don´t take anything not included and remember that breakfast is a courtesy but not a must.
-Smoking is not allowed anywhere in the apartment. If you don´t respect this rule, the deposit could be kept as penalty. If you´re smoker and you go outside to smoke, please don´t do it in the buildings area.
-Please don´t knock the doors and don´t make much noise while I´m resting. My timetables can be quite demanding and my rest is sometimes very limited.
-Try not to drop food on the floor or wooden surfaces as this will leave marks. If you have an accident please clean as soon as possible to avoid this.
-Washing machine use is possible but remember that it is more sustainable to use it with full load and that I´m the only one who can manage it.
-Check in is at 1 p.m and check out at 11 a.m. and it´s always flexible if there are no other guests at the same time. You can always leave your luggage in the apartment until you have to leave the city. If I´m not home when you go, please leave the keys in the apartment and shut the door behind you.
-Don´t invite anyone into the apartment without previous notice, even if I´m not there.
-Use heating and air conditioning with common sense and make sure to turn them off when leaving the apartment.
-Turn the lights off when not it use, this will not only safe on the bill and keep prices reasonable but it will also help the environment.
-Try to separate your waste in the different recycling bins (they are in the terrace, next to the kitchen).
Thanks you for your cooperation and enjoy your stay!!
Berta was a very good host for my wife and I during our work in Madrid. Her apartment in La Latina is small but really nice and we had pretty much the run of it. It's on a quiet street that is very close to some fun restaurants and also within walking distance to plenty of key Madrid tourist points. Berta provided easy directions from the airport, which really were appreciated, and then meet us in her apartment with a map and directions to points of interest. She's very helpful and we definitely recommend her place to future Airbnbers.
This is my second stay with Berta and she and her home are at the top of my favorites for Airbnb! Her home is visually lovely, and the bedroom and bath are both very large and well appointed. The home is well located and I have never needed to even use the metro in order to visit the top sites of Madrid. Berta is gracious, interesting and helpful. I look forward to future stays!
The location was perfect! Right in the center.. It was very easy to walk to everything. Berta wasn't able to meet me, but gave easy directions to the apartment and made arrangements for a friend to check me in. Everything was very comfortable and just like the pictures. Because of her work schedule, I practically had the apartment to myself, but Berta made sure to answer any questions that I had and check in to see if I needed anything. It was a wonderful first Airbnb experience!
Berta was a wonderful host! She gave us excellent directions from the train station to her home, and she was there to welcome us and give us a map with directions to the city's attractions and recommendations for restaurants, etc. She was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. Walking distance to most places. We walked all over the city from her apartment. The room was spacious and we had our own bathroom, as well as use of the kitchen and the washing machine. The pictures are accurate. She was lovely. We would recommend her place. Thanks, Berta, for everything! :)
Berta´s friend was there to meet me when I arrived at the apartment. She gave me a very friendly welcome and explained how everything worked. I immediately felt at home. The apartment is lovely. My room was clean, comfortable and spacious. There was plenty of room for all my things. The bathroom was perfect - very clean and convenient. Breakfast was left for me to help myself. There was a great variety of breadfast ingredients for me to choose from and I had everything I needed. The location is good. It is a few minutes from the metro station - Puerta de Toledo. On my last day, Berta helped me work out the best way to get to my next destination. She is very kind and helpful. The perfect host.
Berta is a really good host. The apartment was very clean and everything is well thought out to make the guest comfortable. Highly recommend her as a host
