Let's start with the slightly negative stuff:
Upon our arrival, I called Charo who then buzzed us in and told us to come up to the second floor. There my brother and I were left wondering whether we actually were in the right place, as nobody opened either of the two doors on the floor. Instead, for a good 5 minutes we had to stand there and listen to a man and a woman shouting at each other in one of the flats while their dog was barking really loudly. Finally, I called Charo again. She and her husband turned out to be the fighting couple.
We didn't get any recommendations from her, and the breakfast she provided us with were tiny buns wrapped in plastic, some stale biscuits and toast.
The doors in the flat are quite creaky, so the first time I tried to shut it, it made a bit of noise. I am a very careful person who doesn't use excessive force, so it really wasn't all that loud. Charo's husband then told me in a very aggravated manner not to slam the door, which I didn't. We apologised anyway and didn't really think about the incident anymore. But a few hours later, I got a message on AIRBNB from Charo, saying that 'they would not indulge such behaviour' and if we 'came to their house to make our stay more economical than a hotel, the least they ask is education'. We felt very attacked, especially since we'd apologised beforehand.
On quite a few photos that have now been removed, a spacious living room was to be seen. We were led to believe that this room was accessible to the guests, which it wasn't.
But we stayed at the apartment for 4 days, and for the rest of our holiday, Charo's husband was nothing but nice. We didn't get to see much of Charo herself.
The flat is easy to find, there is a supermarket in the same street, and you really can explore Madrid on foot if you stay there.
Overall, our stay was very nice.
We had a good rest overnight in comfortable bed. Our lack of Spanish caused us a little effort to find the place. Good location, only 5 subway stops from "must see" Museums in Madrid.
The professionally prepared photos in the listing created some let-down - only seating was 2 wooden chairs plus small table, no sight of any lounges, the window looks into a light-well with view of opposite blanked windows, etc.
Appreciate Charo's effort to get up at 5.30 am for our transport to the airport.
Charo hat eine große Wohnung, sehr zentral in Madrid gelegen. Sie war einfach zu finden, ca. 10 min zu Fuß von der Metro Gran Via. Tolle Gegend, abends ist auf den Straßen viel los ("Soho" von Madrid). Nachts und morgens war es im Haus und in der Wohnung aber angenehm ruhig. Wir waren zu zweit und hatten zwei ineinanderübergehende Räume mit einem Doppelbett und einem Etagenbett. Da die Zimmer auf einen breiten Lichtschacht hinausgehen, sind sie sehr dunkel. Im heißen Sommer stört das aber wenig. Alles sehr einfach und sauber. Bad und Küche gleich nebenan. Charo hat uns zur angekündigten Zeit in der Wohnung sehr freundlich empfangen, uns Zimmer und Küche/Bad gezeigt, die Schlüssel überreicht und mit Tipps für Madrid versorgt. Fürs Frühstück hat Charo uns Kaffee, Milch, Saft, Frühstücksbrot, Joghurt und Melone bereit gestellt. Mikrowelle und Kühlschrank sind vorhanden. Insgesamt sind wir mit der Unterkunft bei Charo sehr zufrieden. Von da aus haben wir Madrid in dieser Woche gut erkunden können. Es lohnt sich. An Charo vielen Dank für ihre gute Gastfreundschaft.

The whole experience as great. We had a warm welcome despite only staying for a night. She was also very helpful as she went to the trouble to deliver a item which we had left behind. Definitely recommending this place to anyone visiting madrid!
Charo and her son were so welcoming! Their historic and beautiful home is very nice, quiet, clean and easy access from the airport.Her home is in the center of Madid, right in the middle of shops, restaurants and entertainment. I would definitely recommend Charo's home and would visit again when next in Madrid!
Great location close to gran via. Restaurants and bars close by. Charo was very friendly and informative. Fair room and bed for the price.
Dopo la prenotaZione Charo ci ha trasmesso via mail le indicazioni per arrivare all'appartamento, precise e facili da seguire :)
