I stayed with Charis for 2 weeks and really enjoyed the experience. The location is very good, the apartment is very nice, and Charis is very nice and helpful! Highly recommended!!
Charis's house was fantastic! Everything was so clean and nice, the bedroom was great and same for the bathroom. Breakfast was also really good which we were lucky enough to get every morning. Location is excellent if you happy walking 15mins or so into the city, which we loved doing. We would definitely recommend to stay with Charis, thanks so much for having us to stay!
Charis' apartment is great and a perfect location to stay when you want to visit Madrid. The bedroom and private bathroom are very clean. The bed is good and nice to sleep on.
The apartment is perfectly located in the center of Madrid. We could walk everything.
And last but nog least, Charis is a very kind and helpful host.
We definitely recommend this place!
This centrally located, quintessentially European flat was smack dab in the middle of Madrid. More local than tourist, the barrio was filled with happening restaurants, lovely shops, and nice markets selling organic food, artisan cheeses, and tempting pastries. Most of the major museums are within a 10-minute walk; and the theater district is about a 15-minute walk.
While the apartment and location were great, Charis herself was even better. As I was traveling alone, she invited me to an art opening; pointed me to and joined me for the best flamenco I've ever seen; and tipped me to the best places to eat and shop. An artist herself, if you're looking for culture in Madrid, Charis will lead you in the right direction.
The next time I'm in Madrid, I'll book here.
We stayed in Madrid for just two full days. And we were lucky enough to stay at Charis's flat in her wonderful,cosy, tastefully furnished flat. The house where the apartment is,is old,multi-storey, with a wooden staircase. We were given a comfortable, nice room with a large wardrobe with lighting,near the room was our private bathroom with all necessary. The flat has a long ,mysterious corridor with photographs on the walls, bright ,spacious,beautiful living room with balconies and photos on the walls(apparently,owner's work) and a large kitchen, where you can cook yourself a coffee,fresh juice and toast,delicious Breakfast. Breakfast includes fresh fruits. The house is located on the street,where are many interesting shops(clothing,jewelry,pleasant things for the house),close enough to the centre and main attractions.
The hostess herself incredibly cute,educated,noble woman with an intelligent and expressive eyes,(email hidden) fire in her eyes. Charis does not prevent guests to relax, does not bother them, with passion engaged in creative work, she is always happy to keep the conversation, to help you and to suggest, where are a particular places,museums,to advise, what to see in Madrid.
I am very glad,that we stayed at Charis's flat, if I am fortunate to be in Madrid,I will again renting a room from this cute segnorina. And also I'll recommend it to all my friends- travelers!
Response from Charis:
Thank you so much for such kind words, I am deeply touched. I am very happy to have met you and hope to see you back in Madrid soon.
I went to Madrid a few days to visit my son who is studying there under the Erasmus program, as I’m a last minute kind of guy, my usual hotel was fully booked, as well as, other reasonably priced hotels, so I tried airbnb out of desperation, and picked more or less by chance Charis’s place, well it turned out to be much better than a hotel, because it was much less expensive and even more comfortable than an hotel, e.g., the bed is comfortable, you have your own private bathroom, you have access to a nice kitchen and living room, which were both very comfortable, artistically decorated and well equipped…but the best part of all was the hostess, Charis, whose values were similar to mine, i.e., the opposite of “bourgeois” or “self-centered”, she’s very charming yet unimposing, very creative, artistic, spiritual and cultivated, we had some very interesting discussions over coffee in the morning… this way of traveling is much more “human” and “fun” than staying in stuffy hotels…from now on it’s airbnb for me!
Response from Charis:
Thank you Dan, it has been a pleasure to meet you. You are welcome anytime.
My friend and I went to Madri for a few days and stayed at Charis´s room. The room is lovely and very clean, there is a privacy bathroom and access to the kitchen. The apartment is very well located, near to many places (few minuts walking to Prado and subway station). Besides all that, Charis is a very kind and warm host! We really liked and enjoyed staying in her place. She is great and helped us a lot! Thanks for everything Charis!
Response from Charis:
Dear Francine, I have also enjoyed having you stay at home. You both are great!
Charis was a fantastic host, warm and kind! The room is lovely and spacious. I stayed there for a month and a half. You have your own private bathroom and access to the kitchen and washing machine. The location is great. You have easy access to the subway and you are about a twenty minute walk from the Prado and the Thyssen Museum. You are also very close to Malasaña if you ever want to get drinks or tapas and you can walk to basically anywhere in the center. It was a terrific experience!
I would recommend this accommodation to a friend without hesitation. There is no question that the location and the place itself deserve their full marks in all categories. It's an apartment with a unique and palpable atmosphere, and I always looked forward to coming back to it after long and exciting hours outside in the city. Charis was a wonderful host, aware of all possible needs a guest might have. For me it was during my stay both easy to withdraw and be on my own, and it was easy to end up in conversations with Charis. I'm grateful that I had the chance to meet her and get a glimpse of her warm, perceptive and creative personality. Thank you!
Me gustó mucho estar en casa de Charis. Ella es un encanto. El piso es precioso, y la zona, que ya conocía de mis tiempos de estudiante, es una de mis preferidas en Madrid. Tranquila, céntrica, y con muchos bares y tiendas al ladito mismo de casa. No veo el momento de volver!!
Response from Charis:
Paula, espero verte pronto. Muchísimas gracias por los chocolates maravillosos. Un fuerte abrazo,
