Vivo en Madrid desde hace 5 años. Me encanta la ciudad y sigo disfrutando mucho de ella, tanto en mi trabajo como en mi tiempo libre.
Gema is a very nice girl. She was willing to help and make us feel confortable. The room was clean and fulfilled perfectly our expectations. In addition the flat is very cosy with it burnfire and its location is perfect, just in Madrid's heart. Absolutly recommended
Gema es una buena anfitriona, dispuesta siempre a ayudarte y a que tu estancia sea lo más cómoda posible. La situación del piso es muy céntrica, frente al mercado de San Miguel y al lado de la Plaza Mayor.
Gema was a great host, very helpful and friendly. I definitely recommend her. The apartment is cozy and exactly as expected. Excellent location!
La ubicacion es (website hidden) habitacion es (website hidden) ducha es muy buena y Gema me dio buenas indicaciones.
I had a really pleasant stay at this apartment. I felt comfortable and at home as soon as I arrived. I made a reservation the same day and Gema was there to let me in. The prices was entirely reasonable. The bed was very comfy and the sheets clean. I had no problem with the bathroom and the flat I found agreeable (I'd live there!). A clean towel was in the room when I arrived. Gema went out of her way to make me feel comfortable, and despite having a lot to do, she made time to chat about common interests (Gema is a creative person with lots of film projects) and what's more, she kindly made me a nice piece of toast and cup of tea in the morning. Maybe this place is not for the overly precious, especially fussy or pernickety traveller!!
Gema is a nice gal and you will feel at home at first sight. Go there if you don't expect too much from the flat. The mattress is good, the wifi is perfect, there is plenty of hot water and the flat is perfectly located if you want to discover Madrid by night but... Sorry Gema there is always a but... but there are neither curtains nor shades at the window and the bathroom is a bit dirty. In my case for the price I paid I am perfectly satisfied but not everybody may react the same!
Response from Gema:
Sorry bertrand for the bathroom. Are you come in the middel of a really crazy hard work time. I am already clean after you going in my renders time! Apologize for any inconvenience.
Overall it wasn't such a pleasant experience the staying at "Double room bright flat in Sol". Me and my friend booked the room.
First, I'll start with a big advantage that this flat has: a very, very good location. It's close to everything. But there were some things that we didn't like. The apartment is more or less dirty It wasn't exagerately dirty, but you wouldn't keep the apartment in that condition (hair in the bath, crumbs on the kitchen cabinet, dirty dishes) if you have guests , especially guests that pay. She wasn't quite prepared for 2 people, as there was only 1 pillow. We asked for a second one and she gave us some small decoration pillows she had in the living room. I didn't have a towel with me (usually hosts offer towels), and I asked for one and she offered a towel (I appreciated it). Also, a negative aspect: in the first night of our staying,the host came home around 5am and the problem was she was noisy, for a long time. We had the feeling she didn't even try to reduce the noise. It is really annoying cause we felt like lack of respect, and besides this, it isn't pleasant to be woken up considering that we were very tired. Second night, very late, around 2-3 am she told us shortly that the next day we must leave at 12 in the noon cause she spontaneously had a trip to do. Not even trying to inform in a delicate manner. In spite of the fact that she told me, before, that she is flexible with the hours. The next days we had a talk and we got to a compromise (I'm glad we could) concerning the check out hour, so we could leave at 3 pm, which was fine for us. We felt like she was doing her own interests. We just didn't really like her way of dealing with her guests. Staying in the apartment wasn't a priviledge for us, but a service for which we paid. I want to mention that this is not my first airbnb experience, and I can tell the difference between a good service and a bad one.
Gema was very nice and accommodating. Her and her roommate made me feel at home. The apartment was nice and clean, i stayed in her room, which was spacious and comfortable. The only thing was that in the morning i would hear other people in the surrounding buildings but you can close the window if that bothers you.
I want to thank you again for everything.
Gema is very kind and cooperative and speaks a good english.
The flat is very nice and central.
I highly recomment everyone who wants to visite Madrid to rent this room!
Thank You (:
The location is perfect. Great airy room with good wifi.
