About Richard

Hi, I'm Richard, I have been renting property for almost 30 years both here and in my native England. I will do all I can to make your stay as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.

I've been living in Madrid for over 25 years now and I'm happy to share information about where to go, where to eat etc.

Richard purchased this apartment in 1993

Why Richard chose Madrid City

My wife and I purchased this apartment in 1993 to live there. The same month we signed the deeds, we found out we where going to be parents and never actually moved in.

We decided to keep the apartment as we love it. It's bright and charming, it's hard to find a centrally located flat in a such a quiet neighbourhood.

What makes this apartment unique

You can walk just about everywhere and the metro (subway) is just three minutes. You are in the heart of the old city; however, a good night's sleep is guaranteed as you can't hear any noise at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your apartment in Madrid was clean, comfortable, reasonably spacious, quiet, and charming. It has all the necessary amenities and is conveniently located. We would stay there again. We appreciated you taking time to give us a brief history of Madrid, answer our questions, and make recommendations. We wouldn't not have received that in a hotel. Your accommodations contributed significantly to our awesome time in Spain. Thanks!

Great location - wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this clean and efficient apartment. The only negative for us was the bed. A bit small for my tall husband. Richard was wonderful and accommodating. We had a great time in Madrid and our neighborhood.

Very clean and well equipped apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location, and we were able to walk to all the major sites. The kitchen was well equipped, we especially appreciated the stove top coffee maker, and the supplies were generous. It was very hot during our visit and the air conditioner worked wonderfully, and with the windows closed the apartment was very quiet. The washing machine and line right out the bathroom window were a bonus! The shower is small, and there are quite a few stairs to climb, but these are minor concerns. Thank you Richard, we had a wonderful stay at your apartment.

What You See is What You Get

  • 4 of 5

Richard's apartment is just fine, Richard very responsive to any questions. We were happy with our stay.

Just to reiterate others' reviews: there are 56 steps to climb to get to the apartment, the stairway is wide but the stairs are a little uneven so be careful the first few trips. The apartment is small -- but as a couple, we were quite comfortable staying there for 13 days (we do, however, travel very light). The bathroom is small -- if you are over 100kg, you may feel a tad cramped in the shower -- but there is endless hot water as a compensation. The kitchen has very basic equipment so if you are not too interested in cooking, you will be just fine: we do like to cook so did feel a bit challenged. Overall, we found the building itself to be clean and quiet and exactly as described.

The BEST thing about the apartment is the location -- it is in the centre of pretty much everything (with lovely local cafes just outside the door; a 24 hour Mercado down the hill; and if you want public transit, a Metro station just up the hill). We would not hesitate to stay again -- especially if there were a few more kitchen utensils!

Great Location!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 days in May 2016. It was an apartment adequate for a couple and very well located, close to metro station and not far from all main center of Madrid. the neighborhood afforded local shopping for fruits and fresh veggies, plus good restaurants, coffee shops! The apartment is located on the 4th floor. Avoid carrying large, heavy suitcases, since there is no elevator. Excellent price for location and neighborhood.

Compact, clean and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location - easy walking distance from museums, Atocha station, restaurants, shops, parks and the metro. It proved to be a good base with all the essentials. It was easy to communicate ( booking, arrival time, leaving arrangements) with Richard; we found him helpful and friendly. In our four days we visited Segovia and Toledo and enjoyed the art in the Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofia. A lovely holiday break.
