I like travelling around the world and I would like to feel every beatiful place in the world. I love to have a good dinner with my couple and enjoy a drinks with my friends. I am a responsible, clean, careful and organized person.
We did not meet Felipe however his mother was helpful and showed us around the apartment. Communication with Felipe was good. He answered promptly and contacted us through our stay to ensure we had everything we needed. He was flexible and allowed us to stay at the apartment past check out. The apartment was clean and a good size for two people. The location is convenient for walking to Plaza Mayor however the streets in the area were dirty.
My stay at Felipe's apartment was short (2 nights) but very pleasant nonetheless. the apartment is perfect for solo travelers or couples and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.
In terms of location, it couldn't be better as it's in my beloved former neighborhood of Lavapiés (I lived in Madrid for 9 years!) and within easy access of other interesting areas like La Latina. The main museums are also within walking distance, as are a host of cool bars and great ethnic restaurants in Lavapiés.
Felipe was very attentive during my stay and was in regular contact with me to make sure everything was going smoothly.
All in all I would definitely recommend his apartment as a great base from which to explore the city, whilst at the same time giving a very interesting insight into one of the most bohemian, working-class and multi-cultural neighborhoods in Madrid!
Felipe was very responsive to our emails and flexible. He let us drop off our luggage early so we wouldn't have to carry it around with us. He was also understanding about the fact that there would be a third person staying with us for just part of the week; he only applied the extra person charge for those nights. His apartment is small, but in our experience that is normal for Madrid. It is clean and stocked with everything necessary--extra sheets, towels, cooking utensils, etc. The internet connection is good, which we appreciated very much. The best thing is the apartment's location--it is easy to get to the airport by Metro (which we did on the way in) or by Cercanias at Atocha (which we did on the way out). We didn't find it necessary to use the Metro while we were staying at Felipe's apartment--we like to walk and all the places we wanted or needed to go to (museums, Retiro, other major sights, buses leaving from Principe Pio) were within a 30-minute walk. But it is very close to three Metro stations if you prefer not to walk. The apartment opens onto a courtyard shared with the rest of the building. During the day you can hear other people talking or watching TV if you have the window open, but for the most part the neighbors are quiet at night and we had no trouble sleeping. In any case, the windows could be closed and the AC turned on to drown out any outside noise. The shower is small. We are thin but very tall and found it a bit cramped. I mention this not because it was a problem for us but because some larger people might find it hard to use the shower. All things considered, we can confidently recommend Felipe's apartment--he's a good host and his apartment worked very well for us.
If you stay here we highly recommend eating dinner at the nearby Gau&Cafe--it's on a rooftop just a few blocks away. Beautiful views and good food.
La valoración que damos tato al apartamento como a Felipe es sobresaliente.
El apartamento cumplia todos los requisitos que buscabamos. Era centrico, tranquilo y aunque pequeño (para una pareja es genial), no le faltaba nada con respecto al equipamiento.
Ademas el anfitrion estuvo muy interesado en nuestro bienestar, cosa que se agradece.
Si tuviera que volver a alquilar un apartamento, no lo dudaria.
Overall we had a lovely stay at Felipe´s apartment. The building is great and well located, just 1 block from subway; very nice neighbourhood; lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The elevator really helped, as we walked a lot in Madrid. The furniture was great; the bed was comfy and the curtains covered the sunlight that we got in the daytime. All the amenities were working just fine. If you´re looking for a great deal in a great neighborhood, this is your place. I highly recommend it.
great location to visit the different districts of Madrid!
Felipe has been very helpful with our travelling details as we had alate arrival to get the keys and late departure too, thanks!
The apartment has all that you need, even for a long stay
Will come back if visiting again
Super appartement dans le coeur de Madrid!
Le quartier est moyen mais l'appartement est propre et chaleureux. Et Felipe est très arrangeant!

A super nice and very well located apartment! Full in the center of Madrid, 10 minutes max everything there was to see really great!
Felipe thank you!
Absolutely fantastic apartment! Great location and had everything we could need, and more! Would highly recommend this flat.
The most useful and practical apartment i've ever seen, it's cozy & comfortable, high speed internet and you have everything you need there. Nice neighbourhood very friendly.
Felipe was a good guest and left the apartement in the same condition when he arrived :)

felipe and group are 5 star guests! there are no issues with them and i would happily let them stay over again. very good communicators. on time with everything. super nice people. left the unit clean upon departure. he is a Pro guest!! 5 stars!!
I was traveling alone on the Madrid segment of my trip and Felipe made me feel completely at ease for everything. My train coming into town was over 2 hours late and he patiently waited for me. He had lots of information, tips, and maps. His apartment was within walking distance of almost everything. He was the perfect host. He arranged for a taxi on my early morning departure 3 days later. I wish all the airbnb hosts were more like Felipe!
Felipe es una persona esputenda, divertido, responsable, sincero y buen amigo. Es un anfitrión excelente, se preocupa por cada detalle y ofrece siempre atención, tranquilidad y confort. Sin duda lo recomiendo como anfitrión, como compañero de viaje y amigo.
Felipe is a great host. Meet a lot of places in Madrid and can guide you on your journey well. It is very helpful and very welcoming. In my land is said to be very "apañao".
Also is delighted to decorate the house.
Felipe will be a great host, don't hesitate to reserve his apartament.Felipe is very friendly and knows Madrid a lot so he can help you to know the best places of Madrid.The apartament is in a typical construction of Madrid called Corrala and is very well located, full of restaurants and close to the most interesting places of the city.
Felipe es un anfitrión estupendo y no dudará en ayudaros a conocer la (website hidden) apartamento está en una corrala en pleno barrio de Lavapies, cerca de los principales monumentos de la ciudad y en el barrio mas multicultural de Madrid.Buen viaje!
Conozco a Felipe hace mucho tiempo, casi hemos crecido juntos. Es honesto, sensato, intuitivo y perfeccionista. Le gusta disfrutar de la vida y saber la razón de las cosas para poderlas (website hidden) un buen anfitrión: a menudo organiza fiestas en su casa preparando platos imaginativos y muy ricos, ademas elige muy bien la música y todos sus amigos nos animamos a bailar con él. Le gusta mucho viajar tanto dentro de España como por otros paise lejanos. Suele organizar el mismo los itinerarios y elige el alojamiento en cada ciudad. El no se pierde por ahi, lo encuentra todo!. Quizá por su experiencia sabe acoger a sus huéspedes en el apartamento que tiene en Lavapies, pensado para personas que quieran pasar unos dias en pleno centro de Madrid disfutando de la comodidad de la casa y el casticismo de la zona. Espero que lo podais comprobar.
Felipe's flat was very nice, comfortable, quiet, clean and just in the city center, near all the interesting places of Madrid. He's a great host and we had a very good time. Next time we go to Madrid, we hope come back.
My friend Felipe has a nice apartment at Lavapies, a multicultural neighborhood full of restaurants and bars. It´s a perfect place to visit Madrid and your guest always are happy after your stay. Felipe plays drums very well but he´s modest.
