The Space

Beautiful apartment in the center of Madrid, in the neighborhood of Argüelles, an area where remains the typical life of Madrid neighborhood, people on the street, traditional food shops, good restaurants and tapas bars and also one of the most important areas comerciales the city with the best clothing stores and department stores such as El Corte Ingles.
Also, 3 minutes from the subway and bus. Best connections to the airport and train station.
10 minutes from Gran Via and Plaza of España, near the Temple of Debod (from the time of the Pharaohs donated to Madrid by Egypt). People enjoy meeting with friends there at sunset, specially in spring and summer.
The apartment is on the fifth floor with elevator, the building is old but very well preserved.
Although the windows are not looking on to the main street, being on the top floor you can see the sky and it is mostly quiet and sunny.
It is a fully remodeled apartment of 60 m2 with: - Master bedroom with double bed 1.35 x 1.90 m and wardrobe - 2nd Bedroom with two single bed and wardrobes. - Living room with sofa-bed of 1.50 x 2.00, for two additional travelers or 2 children. - Fully equipped kitchen with microwave, cooking hob, oven, fridge, crockery, cutlery. - Bathroom with shower, unlimited hot water by gas heater, hair dryer.

  • Apartment was exactly as advertised. It was a great
    location for access to the metro, to food stores, shops,
    the templo de debod. If you like croissants there's a bakery
    nearby that had them as good as any I've
    ever had. Only negative i can come up with
    is that the bathroom sink drains slow.

    I would definitely stay there again if back in Madrid.

  • Enrique is a very kind host; he answered promptly to my request of information and gave us some useful indications to arrive to the apartment from the airport. The apartment is located in a quiet area very near to the centre of Madrid; moreover, it is near the metro station of Arguelles, so we were able to visit easily all the main quarters of Madrid. The apartment is just as in the photos, well furnished of everything is needed for a comfortable stay. At our arrival we appreciated the fresh fruit Enrique prepared for us, as well as the nespresso machine with coffee pods. Thank you, Enrique!

  • The apartment was very clean and in a great location. There were lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Enrique was waiting for us when we arrived which was nice so we didn't have to wait on the street with our bags. There were 5 of us staying with one person on the couch and it was a great place to stay. The shower drain was a bit blocked, we tried to use the plunger but it didn't make much difference. Overall I would recommend this place as a great place to stay in Madrid.

  • Enrique's apartment was very clean and very comfortable. It is also well situated close to all the main sites, which are easily accessible for bus or metro.
    The kitchen and bathroom were well equipped and Enrique provided all the essentials to prepare breakfast for his guests.
    There is also a washing machine available in the apartment which is very handy for weary travellerss.
    There is a also a very helpful superintendent in the building.
    I would definitely recommend Enrique's place in Madrid.

  • Enrique is a very dedicated and thoughtful host. He was prompt in communication, and so accommodating about finding a workable time to let me into the apt. When I couldn't figure out how to use the stove (it's not intuitive to someone from the U.S., so do ask about that) he came by and drew me a very helpful diagram. Very thoughtful and friendly. Thank you Enrique! The location of the apartment is excellent --two metro stops and many good, reasonably-priced places to eat, grocery shop, or take in a film or dance performance within mere blocks (for decently priced, well-prepared midday meals with a neighborhood feel, I'd recommend La Gran Reserva, just a few doors up the street that intersects diagonally with his block, or La Montaña, which is quite nearby as well). You can head over to newly-chic Fuencarral, or to the more established Princesa / Plaza de España area, or fancy Chamberí on foot, getting to any of them in less than 20 minutes, and having seen (and tasted!) wonderful and unexpected things along the way. I would absolutely stay in his flat again. Regarding the flat, the posted reviews are accurate and give a good sense of the space.

  • Enrique is a very kind host and he was there to meet us and gave us lots of information. The apartment was very clean, cozy and quiet and
    very well equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, towels, etc.). The beds were comfortable too.
    Arguelles is a friendly neighbourhood, close to the centre, metro and local shops. On a next visit to Madrid we would certainly come back!

  • We loved our stay at Enrique's apartment. The location is excellent, a five minute walk to the subway. No time at all to be in the middle of Seville, yet we were able to stay in a very nice, quiet neighbourhood that did not feel touristy at all. I have stayed in a few airbnb's, but this had the most conveniences of any of them, including a lovely espresso machine. Enrique met us at the door, explained how to use everything, good local haunts, and provided useful maps. He is also very fast at responding to questions. I would definitely go back to this apartment.

  • The place was a very comfortable environment and every thing worked. The location as described was quiet.We never met Enrique but his representative Patricia was charming. She explained the things we needed to know. Enriques was in touch by email and that worked well. The only thing that would have in enhanced the experince was a second set of keys.
    I really appreciate the fruit that was there. Thanks Enrique for a great stay.
