Great location

  • 4 of 5

We took the metro from the airport to Tribunal station, which was very easy and gave us a sense of how central the location is. The area is fantastic with lots of small businesses, plazas, and just generally great walking area to anywhere in Old Madrid. Easy to stroll Calle Fuencarral to Gran Via and on to Sol, Plaza Mayor and other sights. The owner, Richard, met us at the apartment and gave us both apartment and neighborhood info. We loved the apartment and the size and scale of it, everything you need but compact. We shopped daily and prepared simple meals, made our coffee with the wonderfully efficient stovetop espresso maker in the kitchen- it felt totally comfortable and like home. We used the washing machine and hung our laundry out on clothesline provided in central open area of the building (clothespins available under the sink). Downsides not many, but hot water needs a temperature regulator, while Richard warned about the scalding water, it is too easy to burn yourself. Also bedroom doesn't get light and feels closed in - we tied back curtain to let some natural light in through the glass blocks, bathroom has two existing lights over sink that did not have bulbs but should have.

Overall this place worked well for us. We had booked a 9-day stay and weren't disappointed. We would definitely recommend it.

Διαμερισμα στο κεντρο της Μαδριτης

  • 4 of 5

Μειναμε σε αυτο το διαμερισμα το πρωτο Σαββατοκυριακο του Φεβρουαριου 2016.Ειμαστε ενα ζευγαρι με ενα παιδι 10 ετων.Γενικα ειμαστε ευχαριστημενοι απο την διαμονη μας,ο Ritchard (ο ιδιοκτητης) ηταν ευγενεστατος,το διαμερισμα βρισκεται στην καρδια της Μαδριτης,υπαρχει η σταση του μετρο σε αποσταση 300 μετρων.Το διαμερισμα ειναι στον δευτερο οροφο μιας παλιας πολυκατοικιας .Θα ελεγα οτι μενοντας εκει,κατα καποιον τροπο "ζεις"μαζι με τους κατοικους της πολης,δεν ειναι μια τυπικη ,αποστειρωμενη διαμονη σε ενα ξενοδοχειο..Ο υποψηφιος ενοικιαστης θα πρεπει να ξερει οτι δεν υπαρχει ασανσερ και οτι οι σκαλες , χωρις να ειναι ιδιαιτερα κουραστικες,ειναι λιγο στενες και σιγουρα προβληματικες για ατομα με καποια αναπηρια. Επισης, η θερμανση βασιζεται αποκλειστικα σε ενα air condition .Με τις θερμοκρασιες που επικρατουσαν κατα την διαμονη μας( 2-10c )

,ηταν ΟΚ.

Τα μονα αρνητικα που θα μπορουσα να αναφερω ειναι μια ελαφρως ενοχλητικη μυρωδια (μαλλον ηταν απο τον κλιματισμο),και το κυριοτερο, το πολυ ολισθηρο πατωμα του μπανιου. Νομιζω οτι ο φιλος Richard θα επρεπε να κανει κατι απλο για να αποφυγει καποιο ατυχημα.

Επισης να αναφερω οτι στο ισογειο του κτιριου κανουν Ταυλανδεζικο μασσαζ .Δεν καταφεραμε να το δοκιμασουμε κατα την διαμονη μας γιατι ηταν απαραιτητη κρατηση καποιες μερες πριν.

Great little apartment in a Real Madrid neighbourhood. Close to everything! It is three floors up with no lift. Fine for us.

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights as we passed through Madrid. We paid the flat 30€ rate from the airport. The housekeeper met us to let us in. It is in a nice residential neighborhood that is close to a metro. We regularly walked down to Puerta del Sol. Overall a nice stay. Using the bedroom plus the pull-out sofa worked well for us.

Business trip to Madrid

  • 4 of 5

Rather than staying near the convention center/Airport, I selected this neighborhood place. Fun area with lots of coffee shops and restaurants. The subway is a 2 block walk from the front door. The rooms are small but neat and well maintained. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants in the area. One odd thing about the apartment, he does not have a garbage can in it. My trash built up on a the kitchen counter.

First off - it is very easy to find and Richard, the owner was waiting outside for us when we arrived. He is a really nice chap - laid back, friendly and very helpful. He even left us a great bottle of red wine for our fist evening! Malasaña is now officially my favourite area of Madrid and the apartment is located in its beating heart. Opposite is a super restaurant we frequented a lot - again, with friendly welcoming staff. Turn right out of the apartment and you are 30 paces away from a lively buzzing square with terrific cafes and bars. Turn left out of the apartment and you are minutes away from the fabulous Calle Fuencarral full of great shops, bars, restaurants and night life. We walked more or less everywhere - it took 20 minutes to walk to the Prado and about slightly less to the Gran via and the Plaza Mayor. The apartment is just perfect for two - v comfortable bed - great power shower. We found it very quiet at night considering we were in such a vibrant area. We will certainly be back.
