Soy de Madrid y me gusta viajar
Maria has a lovely place! The word cozy fits perfectly the description of the apartment. The flat is decorated with great taste, and it has everything you need. I stayed there a little bit over a month, and it was perfect.
- Kitchen is very well equipped
- Internet was perfect.
- Well located next to subway stations and buses.
Maria is super friendly and efficient when it comes to solving minor problems or questions about the flat.
I will love to stay in this place again!
We had a fantastic time staying in this apartment, Maria was amazing - very friendly and helpful! The apartment was clean and spacious with only a short walk to the nearest Metro station. A lovely wkend break away, we'll definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Madrid. Thanks again Maria!
We stayed at Maria's apartment for 10 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Maria has carefully designed the space to make the most of the natural light and clean open spaces while ensuring the space has multiple functions. The lounge area has a big comfy sofa and single chairs with a good selection of books and a nice big TV, there is also a desk area where you can use your computer and lay out your books and paperwork without the need to pack it all up each time you want to eat, this was especially important to me and one of the reasons I chose her apartment. The kitchen is minimal in design and has all you need, the stove top has lots of electronic buttons but once you get the hand of it, it works like a dream. Very much enjoyed preparing meals in this open space. The bathroom is designed so that the sink area is located in the corridor to the bedroom whilst the shower and toilet are separate - again a great use of space. The flooring is wood parquet so never cold on your feet and the apartment has a great heating system and separate A/C system.
The neighbourhood is great, there are 3 supermarkets all within a 5 minute walk, one of which is 24 hours, a fish market shop just around the corner, multiple hairdressers should you need a haircut and one street where you will find about 5 different restaurants all serving el menu del dia in case you don't feel like cooking and which are all well priced. And if you just want a burger, there is a Burger King close by.
There is also a park where you can jog, walk, play paddle or practice golf, we used it regularly for jogging. The metro stop Cuatro Caminos is about a 7 minute walk away and a taxi to down town will set you back about 7 Euro.
Maria is a great host, she was available by phone and email and always promptly answered our queries. On arrival she provided a little bottle of sparkling wine that we drank out of her very styley wine glasses!
Overall, the apartment was everything we expected from the description and photos and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
This was a great apartment for us to rent. María is a wonderful host who gives her guests maps and directions, restaurant recommendations, cultural attractions, etc. Even if you arrive late as we did (she really made a great effort waiting for us until late in the evening. For non-Spanish speakers, María’s English is excellent (I can speak Spanish but my partner cannot and she was amazed with María’s English). The apartment was extremely clean and quite comfortable, quiet and warm. It is also only a block from a metro station and plenty of buses (very comfortable if you come from the airport). We didn’t have to take any public transportation since we could walk to the financial district (a ten minute walk) and to Ciudad Univeristaria (a five minute walk). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment, which is actually nicer than in the pictures. We highly recommend it.
Maria is a bright spirit - intelligent and considerate and positive. She is an absolutely perfect guest and I would welcome her again with no hesitation. Penny
