Autentica posadera castiza...., con ganas de ayudar y agradar a las personas que visitan mi casa y Madrid.
Gemma is the most gracious host we have met thus far using AirBnB! She it's very gracious to show us around the neighborhood. She is extremely personable and her flat was wonderful - very cozy! We highly recommend her flat!
We enjoyed our stay at Gemma's apartment very much. The neighborhood was great. It was not at all touristy, but was within walking distance of most tourist sites. I liked having the Rastra flea market there Sunday morning. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable.
Excelente el piso y encantadora la anfitriona, ofreciéndome opciones e información para ver diferentes cosas en la ciudad . Una ubicación ideal en un barrio que me encanta con paradas de metro muy cerca, a 5 minutos caminando, al igual que las calles Cava Baja y Cava Alta, con buenos sitios para comer. Este piso será mi primera opción para otra futura pequeña escapada a Madrid.
Solamente una advertencia para la gente alta, cuidado con la puerta del ascensor
We had a great stay in Gemma's appartment, which is decorated with a lot of charm, situated in a great area with lots of tapas bars and restaurant and within walking distance from the main sightseeing places. But the best part of the appartment is indeed the terasse - a lovely place to have the breakfast and enjoy the great views and the sun. Gemma is also a great host, she gave us a lot of excellent tips Totally recommend it !
We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Gemma's flat! Gemma is delightful!! She was waiting for us at the airport where we received a warm greeting. The flat had everything we needed although our family of four had to be creative when showering in order not to run out of hot water. During day six, we came back to the flat to find water all over the kitchen floor. Water was leaking through the ceiling. Gemma was on it!! She apologized and was at the flat the next day to meet with the insurance rep. This small problem did not impact our stay at all.
The flat is located a short 10 minute walk from Plaza Mayor, and you'll wake up on Sunday morning to find El Rastro on the street below.
Be prepared for street noises -- just not accustomed to trash pickup at midnight and children playing in streets until 11:30 pm. But, that is Madrid and one of the reasons we enjoyed the culture.
I highly recommend staying at this flat!! Thanks, Gemma!
I had an amazing trip to Madrid, where I was based in Gemma's apartment for 12 days. The location was perfect. I walked everywhere, and yet, I was outside of the most touristy regions, shopping in the local market and having breakfast in the neighborhood. The apartment is very comfortable, with two double beds of good quality. I will return. Gemma -- along with all of the warm, patient, and generous people of Madrid I met -- made the trip even more outstanding. Many many thanks. I will stay here again.
Très agréable appartement, très bien situé. Gemma à été très attentive et nous a facilité notre trop bref séjour à Madrid. La terrasse est un must.
It was an amazing apartment!!!! All I can say is well recommended , close to everything u need, very lovely owners, and great looking apartment
Bonito piso situado en el centro de Madrid. Se puede llegar a pie a todas las atracciones turísticas y museos, así como a la amplia oferta de bares y restaurantes del centro.
Gemma fue muy amable, atenta y flexible.
We would recommend Gemma's place to everyone! - it has everything you need and is super comfortable and a beautiful place to relax in. The area is pretty quiet but the metro is close as are excellent food markets and heaps of little grocery shops that are open really late if you need. Gemma is a really lovely host.
Communication with Gemma was going good before and during stay. She is a very friendly and nice guest. Clean and respectful. Higly recommended.
Muy positiva.Una familia estupenda. Han cuidado mucho el piso y lo han dejado perfecto. Muy agradables y educadas. Espero que vuelva gente así.
Gemma was our guide in Madrid on 22nd November 2013. Since she is a genuine madrileno = la gata, she new her way around the city. But most importantly Gemma is also intelligent, sincere and has a great sense of humor. Our travel group of three highly recommend her for anyone interested in having deeper knowledge of the great city of Madrid.
Hasta luego, "Paco, Pepe & Javi"
