Big and nice apartment. Very clean. Everything needed is there.
The organization to get and leave the keys was perfect.
The apartment is close to "Puerta del Sol" so you can visit the center by walking.
The only defect I would say is the neighborhood late at night. I won't recommend to girls to come back late alone.
We had a very nice time in the apartment, which is comfortable and can easily accommodate two couples. There is everything you need, from kitchen stuff, bed linens and towels, to heating and internet.
The hosts are very nice, and even though they have not been able to meet us directly, Silvio, a charming gentleman, showed us everything. Despite I do not speak a work of spanish, communication was wasy.
The location is also great, many cool places are in walking distance.
We were welcomed by the father of Javi who was very kind and showed us all the details of the appartment. The appartment was exactly as we had seen it in the pictures, and it is very warm and cosy. It is very near to a metro station and at a strategic spot near all the attractions that you can visit by foot and there is also a Carrefour supermarket very close by too.
We totally recommend the staying at Yara and Javi's appartment and we hope that we will return one day too!
Thank! It has been a pleasure hosting you. Hope to meet you again!!
Als wir ankamen wartete Yara´s Vater bereits auf uns. Er sprach nur Spanisch, aber das war kein Problem, da wir alle notwendigen Informationen schon im Vorfeld bekommen hatten. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles was wir benötigten war vorhanden, außer ein Haartrockner den wir vergessen hatten. Aber es war unser Fehler nicht daran zu denken bzw. im Vorfeld danach zu fragen. Wegen unserer Kinder konnten wir am Nachtleben nicht wirklich teilnehmen, aber aufgrund der zentralen Lage der Wohnung haben wir einen hautnahen Eindruck davon bekommen. Das WLAN war sehr nützlich gerade für das Einchecken des Rückfluges. Sogar Fussball spielen war in der Nähe (vor dem Reina Sofía Museum) möglich während wir ein Kaffee in einem der nahegelegenen Cafés genießen konnten. Yara und Javi waren sehr zuvorkommende Gastgeber, daher war der Aufenthalt für uns sehr unkompliziert und angenehm. Vielen Dank Yara und Javi!
Yara and Javi have a very conveniently located apartment in the Lavapies District of Madrid, in easy walking distance from the Atocha train station, El Prado, El Palacio, La Sofia Reina and many other sites. The apartment is light and airy and has all of the expected conveniences, including two double beds with linens and a spacious kitchen.
We were met as arranged by Sabino and Concha, Yara's very nice parents. They showed us around as Yara and Javi were not in town and they were very helpful and accommodating. This worked well as I speak Spanish and Sabino and Concha do not speak English.
We enjoyed the fact that the neighborhood includes a great variety of people. Be advised that it is a bit noisy at night -- I slept through this just fine but my wife would wake up on occasion.
Thanks, Yara and Javi, for a very enjoyable stay!
We met Mayte to get keys and to learn about the apartment. She was very helpful, especially considering traffic made us late in coming. The apartment was perfect! It is walking distance to all the major sights including the Prado, Reina Sofia, Puerto del Sol, Plaza Mayor and even a longer walk to the palace and cathedral. There is a metro station at the nearby Plaza Lavapies, but we never needed to use it. The apartment was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. Families should note there is a small playground in the Plaza Lavapies. There is some noise from a restaurant (more on the weekend), but nothing more than we expected for being in the center of Madrid. Thanks for a great stay!
The host made us very welcome. She spoke excellent English. She provided us with information and maps of Madrid. There were extra supplies when we arrived which is always helpful.
The apartment is located in the Madrid city area, close to a metro station and close to a double decker tourist bus (website hidden) was a 15 minute walk from the main station.
There was plenty of room in the unit with nice facilities.
A bit noisy from neighbours, might be a matter of chance.
Hemos tenido una estancia excelente. La anfitriona estupenda. El piso a pesar de ser un primero no es para nada ruidoso.
The apartment is supernice, fully equipped, spacious and now has a completely renovated bathroom. If desired there is always a pleasant breeze in the flat since there are windows/balconies on both sides of the building. Monica, Yara's mother, is a very amicable and attentive host. We felt completely safe and comfortable in the neighbourhood. It's a residential, yet lively area with a cool mixture of bohemian-style cafés/bars as well as alternative (e.g. vegan) and ethnic cuisine restaurants. Two metro lines are easily and quickly accessible by Lavapiés and Anton Martín station in order to explore the city. But metro isn't even necessary because the aparment is located so centrally that you can reach most of the sights by just walking. Highly recommendable accomodation!
Thank you Kai! it has been a real pleasure hosting you. Hope to meet you again anytime!
We had a marvellous stay in Yara's and Javi's apartment and felt very much at home. We were welcomed by Yara's mum Monica, who was very friendly and gave us some good advice on places to visit in the neighbourhood. The apartment is very cosy and well arranged, with two separated bedrooms, one of them with a nice small terrace. Everything is there, nothing's missing. The apartment is perfectly located in the multicultural Lavapies area, and right next to the bohemian Las Letras area, where you can go for drinks, tapas or simply a nice walk, and is only a 10 minutes' walk from famous market El Rastro and Centro Reina Sofia. I can definitely recommend this place. Muchas gracias!
Thank you Kajta! It has been a pleasure hosting you. Hope to meet you again!!
Yara was a very pleasant guest. I would happily host her again :)
Yara and his boyfriend are really great guests and I recommend them highly. Very nice and respectful guys, they travel really light:).
