  • The place was very modern and beautiful. The view from the terrace is really spectacular. The five flight walk up is something to be aware of. Other reviewers mentioned it being a bit noisy as your directly on plaza mayor, but this didn't bother us. The location is perfect- very close tot the metro and great places to eat. We would walk to Calle Cava Baja for fun tapa crawls. Angel was great as he was very flexible with times and the communication was prompt. He also left some basics for us - bread, a selection of hams, cheese, orange juice and milk. We would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • We had a wonderful few days in Angel's flat. The views from the roof terrace are a fantastic bonus and we felt really privileged to see the Plaza mayor from angles most tourists don't get to see. The flat is also ideally located for a Madrid city break with some of the best bars, restaurants and cafés all within a few hundred metres.

  • Although I live in Madrid, I had organised this as a little treat and a complete surprise for my boyfriend when he visited. We loved the apartment and central location. The key selling point for this flat are the views, which were incredible. It was worth all the weeks of secrecy just to see his face when we walked up on to the rooftop terrace. You can see all the goings on in Plaza Mayor or take in the beautiful views of the Sierra and Madrid. Angel was very friendly and had left various snacks etc just incase we needed anything for breakfast.

  • For our last night on a trip to Madrid, my dad and I decided to book Angel's place overlooking Plaza Mayor. It was the best decision we could have made and we wished we had spent the entire duration of our trip there. It goes without saying that the location is excellent for exploring the city, but the 360 degree view of Madrid, the lightning-fast WiFi, and the jamon, queso, and rolls left for us made it the perfect place. Thank you Angel for letting us stay at your flat!

  • This apartment is MAGICAL! We've been to Madrid many times, my husband lived there for years, and we have never come close to seeing views as stunning as this! From the balcony dormer window you can see all of Plaza Mayor... Looking directly at the main building with the clock and beautiful and colorful frescos. From the rooftop terrace you can see, The Schwepps sign, the amusement park in Casa de Campo, many many churches, the Telefonica building, all of Madrid! Beautiful day and night!

    The apartment itself is comfortable. The bed is great. The shower has awesome water pressure. The snacks and desayuno are a nice touch.

    The stairs... There are a lot if stairs... But you're staying in an attic apartment in Plaza Mayor! So every step is worth it. Angel was great and met us and helped us with out suitcases.

    This is the best AirBnB I've stayed in yet.

  • Angel's apartment was even better than the other reviewers have shared. If we could give it 6 stars, we absolutely would. Obviously the location is incredible. You can't stay in Plaza Mayor unless you are in someone's apartment. The apartment itself was a great size for a studio. Was not cramped at all, and actually provided a great deal of space for 2 people. The rooftop terrace was truly something else. I thought, before our trip, that this was perhaps a public space. It is not. The terrace is private to the apartment and has 360 degree views of the city, and because the city is mostly flat, the apartment gives the guest an out of this world perspective. Many reviewers have complained about the stairs. My wife and I both thought the stairs were a great asset to the apartment, because they provided a certain amount of privacy, but also great visual rewards. The apartment is truly a penthouse, and because it is situated on the top floor of a centuries old building, the stairs are your gateway to history here. Angel provided some bread and cold cuts as well as coffee, tea, butter and jam. We utilized everything, and it was certainly an added bonus for our stay. He was very easy to get ahold of, and always accessible on whatsapp. The apartment is located just several hundred meters from Mercado San Miguel, which is one of the most exceptional and gourmet public markets I have ever been to. The environment of the apartment was clean, the wifi worked, and all things considered, was a fantastic value. At times we felt like Angel was doing us a favor providing us the opportunity to stay in his place. Experiences like these are why we continue to use airbnb.

  • Fantastic place! Such a special apartment right in the middle of the action of Madrid. The views are insane and communicating with Angel was so easy. Highly recommend downloading and communicating with your host on WhatsApp, everyone in Spain uses this IM app. It makes communicating with your host super easy. Angel was waiting for me outside the listing and carried my suitcase up the stairs. He thought of every little detail: shampoo, milk, snacks, guidebooks, etc. you name it, he had it ready. The only caveat I will mention is that that if you aren't up for the stairs, this might not be right for you, but if you can handle them, they are so worth it because the views are astounding and the attic apartment setting is so charming. Also, the bathroom is really tight so wouldn't work for large people (tall and/or wide). Thanks Angel for a great stay, I will definitely return!

  • This a really great, charming, well-decorated apartment in the heart of the city. You can't beat the views from the bedroom and the roof deck. It's a bit of a hike up the stairs, but it's definitely worth it. Angel is really nice too and provides you with juice, milk, and some bread for breakfast, which was much appreciated!
