Thanks Pilar for a cozy apartment. Despite the later booked arrival, it was very nice to meet hospitable host who helped locate and helped prepare for the early departure! thank you very much!
This (email hidden) for an early morning departure out of the airport. Checkin process was smooth and communication was timely and flexible. Would recommend a stay here. Some helpful local knowledge: cabs leaving the airport charge a 20 euro base. A cab ride from the house to the airport runs only about 12 euro. It would also be easy to take the train to the barajas station and catch a cab from there if you have lots of luggage.
We needed a place to sleep and booked Pilar's room, as it is not far away from the airport. The flat (with two separated bedrooms) is nice, quiet and clean. The host was very gentle and uncomplicated. Basics in spanish language are recommended. In the backyard is a little garden and the best place to relax a little.
We booked the room for another two days on your way back. The metro is just about 700m away. So the connection to madrid center is available without taxi or car.
Perfect for us.
We plan to book it again.
Mil gracias Pilar (también a tu padre)....
La habitación es básica, pero muy cømoda y limpia y la locación es perfecta para ir temprano al aeropuerto.
Anfitriones muy amables y la casa es muy cuca con un precioso patio ajardinado estupendo para comer/ cenar fuera. En lo negativo, el baño y lavabo son de compartimento de tren, muy pequeños y la caldera para una sola persona. El baño está anexo a la casa. En verano estupendo pero en invierno...
No obstante, hemos estado a gusto y los propietarios muy atentos.
No he tenido experiencia con el anfitrión ya que no vive allí. Estuve prácticamente sóla en la casa. Compartiendo la noche con otros huéspedes. Lo cual me fue incomodo al no estar en anfitrión a cargo, a comparación de mi experiencia en otro alojamiento. Me sorprendió la ubicación del baño y ducha ya que se encuentran en la planta baja, afuera en el patio. Lo cual lo hacía incomodo, más si se va a compartir el lugar con otros. Para mi fue útil porque me aceptaron con mi perro, y sólo pasé una tarde y noche allí. A 3 cuadras hay una plaza con varios restaurantes y servicio de taxi
I had a good evening and night with my (email hidden). Her father Miguel welcomed us. He was very friendly and showed us the busstation nearby. In 10 minutes we were at the airport next morning.
Pilar's place is very nice, very practical on the center of Bajaras. The welcome was Warm and helpful. I highly recommend Pilar's place and Will come back for sure!
Pilar house is fantastic if you land in Barajas, about 10 min from M station , plenty of shops make this place convinient if you want to have transfer flight. House itself is very nice, with access to kitchen, garden and bathrooms. To tell you the truth we thought we are renting rooms there but Pilar just gave as keys to whole house. Strongly recomend.
Hands-down, the best place we've stayed in Spain!
As you walk through this house, it feels as though you are in a museum turned into a house by an interior-decorations genius. The living areas are set up just perfectly: fully stocked kitchen, a bath/laundry area with two washrooms, an outdoor garden with a patio, and bedrooms that can be so dark that you can sleep until noon!
The living space is decorated with an eclectic collection of interesting show-pieces: old typewriters next to carved masks and a dozen other equally unique items. It was a pleasure to sit around the living room and just read!
The location was perfect for flying out of Madrid airport: literally a 5-minute drive or cab-ride. We had a car, but getting to downtown Madrid via subway was just as easy (30-minute via car, 60-minute via subway).
And the hosts were just perfect! We were running late, and they accommodated our changing schedule without hesitation. We arrived late in the evening to a warm reception, and check-out was just as easy (drop keys on table and pull the door).
Highly recommended! If you are flying to/from Madrid, you'd be crazy not to stay here!
Pilar es una excelente inquilina. Cuida el apartamento como si fuera el suyo. Gracias y hasta pronto!
