I teach in a public school here in Madrid, but Chicago is my hometown. I´ve couchsurfed for years, and airbnb feels like the next stage -- you can see (email hidden)/people/yogikid and read all about me!
From our first contact Kevin was very kind and helpfull. The apt is great and is very good located to explore Madrid either by foot or Metro. If you have a car however it might be difficult to park (ask Kevin about parkingspots) we were lucky to park close to the apt (disabled parkingcard). If you're a light sleeper, like I am, take some earplugs because there can be some noise at night (my husband slept through it) but therefore the bed is superb!
Although Kevin was in the States he responded quickly to my emails and helped us with some minor issues.
Would recommend the place any time! Thanks Kevin for making our stay as pleasant as it was :)
A clean and comfortable apartment. I stayed with my husband and 2 children (7 & 10). The 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were ideal. The back bedroom is off the street and very quiet. The location was amazing - we could walk to many places and the metro was very convenient, multiple lines within a few minutes walk. There were lots of grocery options and we used the kitchen quite a bit for meals for the kids. The small pool was a bonus for a refreshing swim in the afternoon. Also loved the wifi...Kevin was great and responded to emails promptly. Although he was not in town for our check-in/check out, he made arrangements that were very easy and convenient to follow. We had a wonderful stay in Madrid!
Great flat with everything you need. Location was walking distance to everywhere we wanted to visit, and the whole booking, check-in & check-out process was friendly & stress-free.
Also, bonus points for the amazing coffee machine & juicer!
Kevin fue súper amable y atento. El departamento esta en una ubicación ideal y es súper cómodo. Es muy limpio, ordenado y practico. Gracias Kevin!
very clean, comfort, quiet, convenience, and lovely place, the owner gave us the fully privacy in this house. :)
nice experience in Madrid!
Great position and a wonderful hospitality. Kevin will let you feel like at home.
You are in the heart of Madrid.
It was a great experience for us.
I had such a great trip to Madrid! Kevin is an absolutely wonderful host, friendly, helpful and just so nice! It practically felt like staying with a friend -- Kevin even showed me around a lovely Bohemian-esque neighborhood and shared dinner with me. I would definitely like to be able to stay there on my next trip to Madrid.
As for the apartment, it's a nice size, very clean and comfortably furnished. It's also in a fantastic location -- basically everything touristy is less than a mile walk, and there are at least two (maybe more?) metro lines within 5 minutes walking distance to get to farther places like the airport. (And a sweet full-sized bathroom was a nice change from all the tiny bathrooms I have been encountering in Europe!)
Ce fut un réel plaisir d'habiter cet appartement pour une semaine en mars 2013, tout y est pour se sentir comme chez soi. Un grand espace salle à manger et salon, 2 chambres et 2 salles de bain. À proximité des principaux sites et d'une station de métro et de marchés petits et grands pour les achats domestiques.
Had a great stay with Kevin! Found the place easily and in great location. Very clean room and bathroom with Kevin being very hospitable helping us with anything we needed. His advice on site seeing and places to eat were very helpful.
Breakfast was a real plus! Included was breaky at a local cafe downstairs 2 of our mornings and then then the other 2 Kevin cooked up a real feast ready for when we got up!
Would definatly reccommend!
Kevin's place really is in a superb location, and the flat is clean and spacious. Plus, he provides plenty of recommendations on sites, restaurants, etc. My wife and I shared dinner with Kevin one evening, and he showed us around one of the areas that was off the tourist track. I can really say that we now have a friend in Madrid.
Kevin estuvo solo dos días pero pude disfrutar de su agradable compañía paseando y charlando. Y le gustan los perros!
