Spanish actress currently living in NYC
Cool compact pad decked out in movie memorabilia in the lively La latina area in central Madrid. Irene wasn`t there but she kept in communication to make sure everything was ok.
I`d go back!
As others have mentioned great location. Really close to a lot of great food in the La Latina area and so so close to the Mercado de San Miguel for a cheap and tasty breakfast/lunch. Whether you're tired from shopping or seeing the sights, this place was so easy to get back to to take a break and relax with watching TV in Spanish. I really enjoyed X-men in full espanol dub! The manuals to things in the home were all available in case anything went wrong. It was a great living experience in a great neighborhood and large city.
It was just perfect. I recommend everyone to stay in that lovely flat in the center or Madrid:)
It was my third time in Madrid. My first time in this apartment. It was fantastic! My mother and I stayed here. It was very comfortable. It was clean. It is In a lively neighborhood. It was also very close to everything! That 5 train got us everywhere!
You simply could not ask for a better location, great food/bars, central to all attractions, and a serviceable apartment. Two flights up a narrow staircase, but perfectly manageable. Incredible memory foam bed under the eaves, smaller single for a child or adult. All appliances work, shower with small tub. Washer/dryer. Best of all is a talented, funny, helpful, communicative host. A real joy to stay here and talk with Irene. My top rating on AirBnB
I stayed at the apartment with two other traveling companions for three nights in July 2013, and we found it to be a great home base for exploring Madrid. The apartment is situated right in the heart of the La Latina neighborhood, surrounded by some of the best tapas restaurants in the city. The area is within a short walk of the Plaza Mayor, the Plaza de la Puerta del Sol, Callao, and the rest of the city center. Irene was an excellent host and was very prompt to respond to any messages and address any questions or concerns. The only piece of critical feedback I would leave is that the air conditioning did not adequately reach the back bedroom and it was a bit on the hot side in early July. Other than that, we were very satisfied with our stay at this apartment and would recommend it to other travelers looking for a place to stay in Madrid.
Great spot. Only a couple of blocks from the oldest restaurant in the world.
The apartment was great! Ceilings a little low if you're tall but really nice rooms and fantastic location right above a street with tons of tapas places and bars (but you don't hear the noise). Also walking distance to every major attraction. Irene was helpful for arrival and departure and I would definitely recommend this apartment
Mil gracias Irene!!! El apartamiento es en un lugar ideal en madrid, limpio y muy agradable. Irene te agradesco mucho por todo!!!
A cosy apartment in a great location. The apartment was clean and well equipped, with a supermarket nearby. We stayed for 3 nights and it was very hot in Madrid and the apartment had air conditioning which was excellent! The host, Irene, was very helpful in organising someone to meet us with keys, considering our arrival was delayed by half a day due to airport delays. Travelling with children, the apartment was very child friendly and quiet, considering how close it is to nightlife. We highly recommend Irene's apartment to anyone wanting to stay in a great area of Madrid.
Irene and Jeff are the best!! They are sincere, easy to make arrangements with, warm and a very kind couple. It was such a pleasure to host them, they are welcome to stay anytime. They kept my apartment super clean. Thank you Jeff and Irene :-)
5*, I stayed in this apartment twice already. Great experience. It is charming, quiet, and clean. The area is a must and Irene is a sweetheart. Highly recommended!!!
Irene is one of the best persons that i have met. She is so kindly and sincere. I love her integrity! We share many common interests in arts like cinema or theatre.
Her house is wonderful welcoming place to stay. The neighborhood is great, near to go for a walk to every important places of the city: monuments, good ambience and underground so close!! I absolutely recommend you to stay in her house if you wanna live the real city.
