The pictures don't do justice to the apartment's size, especially the awesome terrace which has a bbq.
Arturo answer quickly and has everything properly organized.
While the apartment is not in the center, it's conveniently located in a nice neighborhood.
This was our second time at Arturo's Place. The room is excellent. The apartment is in a great location, just steps away from the subway, in a lovely neighborhood, full of bars, restaurants and markets. The hosts are wonderful people. I have a hard time thinking on a better place to stay while visiting Madrid.
Enjoyed my stay. The rooftop terrace was very pleasant.
We stayed in this room two times during our recent trip to Spain for a total of 9-nights. The apartment is located just steps to the nearest metro station. This is ideal if you're doing an airport transfer as it is just a few more stops on the same train line to the international airport. While most tourist sights will be a short train ride away we found this neighborhood to be pleasantly Spanish. Without hotels there aren't many other tourists around. Within a one-block radius you'll find a dozen good restaurants, a grocery store, a bakery, and a huge Spanish market with dozens of vendors selling cured meat, raw meat, fish, cheese, produce, and more. There is a park a short walk away. Arturo was out of town when we visited so his roommate Rafa welcomed us in. Simply put, Rafa is the best roommate you could ask for. He is exceedingly friendly and we really liked him. This room has fast wifi, a big comfortable bed, a door to the very large shared terrace, and a large en-suite bathroom. There's also a good air conditioning unit in your room. The bedroom is very quiet, no traffic noise, no neighbors, but you can hear some noise from the elevator when it is moved. Arturo has left out some maps, guides, and outlet adaptors if you need them. We really enjoyed our time here. We would recommend this room to anyone and everyone and would stay here again too.
During our first trip to Madrid, we spent five nights in this beautiful bedroom. The spacious bathroom and the brilliant terrace were a big plus. The apartment is situated in a pleasant neighbourhood. We enjoyed the "chocolateria Lyon" just round the corner as a cosy place for having breakfast. Rafa and Aniel were warm-hearted and helpful hosts. We highly recommend this place and hope to return soon again.
Thank you so much for this wonderful place to stay. Arturo and Simon were away so we didn't get to meet them, but Rafa and Aniel were perfect hosts. The apartment is convenient for everything and is in a very nice neighborhood with a beautiful market and good restaurants. The apartment is exactly as described and is quiet and comfortable. Really excellent and highly recommended.
The place was simply perfect.
Arturo was away, but his friend Rafa was a very generous and friendly host. My stay was everything one could wish for; a well appointed, air conditionned and above all quiet room with a full bathroom and, of course, the terrace which was such a plus.
I was tempted to write an awful review just to keep this wonderful place a secret for myself, my friends and relatives ;-) but that would have been unfair.
So, yes, I highly recommend the Rooftop terrace room of Arturo.
We were really happy the location is great! Only a few minutes to the subway and fairly close to the airport. Easily accessible. The bathroom was huge, the bedroom was really nice and comfortable and we were able to do your washing which was great. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet and has some really great restaurants. All up we had a great time, Arturo was an excellent host he spoke clear english and booked us a taxi to the airport. Would definitely stay here again.
The host canceled my reservation 19 days before arrival.
Arturo is the Best!
His apartment is CLEAN & SAFE, and in a good part of town. The space is beautiful, especially the terrace. As a host he is very welcoming and makes everyone feel at home. The entire stay was a great way to get to know Madrid. There is EASY transport from the airport via the metro and into the city center.
I was a female student traveling to Madrid alone. I plan to be here for a year, So I needed a place to stay while I got to know the city. Arturo's place was perfect.
Stay with Arturo, you won't be disappointed!
Excente persona, educado, amable, simpático. de toda confianza. Un saludo.
Arturo and Simon were delightful guests - we felt bad that the weather wasn't perfect for them!
If we can arrange a trip to Madrid they will be our first choice hosts.
