Guestbook comments from the owner

Mario,

Thanks so much for sharing your nice apartment with us. We loved the convenient location (easy walk to everything we wanted to see), very clean, pleasantly decorated and well supplied with everything we needed. Alejandra was very helpful. As for "people watching" our front window was as entertaining as any seat on the plaza. If we get to Madrid se will come back to Lavapies 26. Thanks again, Donna

La mia sosta nell'appartamento è stata molto buona

La mia sosta nell'appartamento è stata molto buona
  • 5 of 5
Appartamento a 5 min a piedi dal centro(Sol). A pochi passi dalla stazione metro Tirso de Molina. Ben arredato e ottimamente attrezzato (come descrizione del sito). Consigliato. Appartamento abbastanza piccolo. Se siete in 5 e non avete grossa capacità di adattamento vi troverete un pò in difficoltà. Meglio per 4 persone.
La persona di contatto disponibilissima e ottima per i vacanzieri

An Excellent Alternative to a Hotel Room

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 4 days in late September. It was a great alternative to staying in a hotel room at a very fair price. The apartment has a very comfortable living room with stereo, tv, and dining table, well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and washing machine/dryer, a bedroom with a comfortable bed and good closet space, and a pleasant bathroom. It is up one flight of stairs from the ground floor. The couch in the living room evidently folds out into a bed so that more than a couple can be accommodated in the apartment.

The apartment is well located -- a short walk to Plaza Mayor and Puerto del Sol, somewhat longer to the Reina Sofia Museum and the Prado. The Tirso del Molina subway station is quite nearby, which allows easy access to/from the Atocha train station and the airport. Just down the street there is a group of Indian restaurants, and several grocery stores and other restaurants are close by.

The owner and manager, Mario Alvarez, was extremely friendly and helpful. He corresponded with me via email and met us at the apartment to give instructions and offer hints. One cautionary note: the apartment overlooks a small plaza which can get somewhat noisy at night -- but then much of Madrid and other cities in Spain have the same problem. Also, be sure to get specific instructions from Mario about the washer/dryer -- the cycle times are much longer than for American machines.

Thanks, Mario, for helping us to enjoy Madrid!

5 great days in Madrid

  • 5 of 5
The appartment is very nice, absolutely clean and well-maintained. It is very comfortable, has a very tastefull interior and decoration, and
provides you with everything you need.
Customer service is perfect.
The great thing about this property is its location in the heart of the
Centro of Madrid. Everything you need to see or to visit in Madrid is within walking distance: 6-7' to Plaza Mayor, 10' to Centro Reina Sofia,
15' to Atocha Renfe Station, etc..
There are plenty of restaurants very close to the property in the Calle
Argumosa, Plaza Santa Ana and around Plaza Mayor.
We would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Great Madrid Experience

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful stay in Madrid. Very comfortable apartment. Clean, secure, and a good location. Within walking distance to many sites, and close to the metro. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The street definitely makes you feel like a local. Would certainly recommend to a couple.

The apartment is located in a ‘listed’ building of jewist architecture. The building has recently been completely renovated, the work being completed in mid 2003. This neighborhood was the walled-in “Judería” - the medieval Jewish quarter- until Jews were forced into exile or conversion in 1492.

During the renovation it was necessary to maintain many of the original features of the building as it is a ‘listed’ property, which explains why there is no lift.

Adjacent to the building is a recently renovated ‘plaza’ or outer courtyard, which can be seen from the windows.

The street where the building is situated is on a slope. It has beenpedestrianised and has limited vehicle access, making it a peaceful place to stay.

The apartment is located beteen 3 small and historic neigbourhoods: Tirso de Molina, Lavapies and La Latina

If you leave the building and walk uphill, you quickly come to ‘Tirso de Molina square’ (Plaza Tirso de Molina), which has many cafes, and the ‘NUEVO APOLLO’ theatre, along with a permanent flower market. There is also a children’s’ play area.

There is a metro station here which quickly connects you with any part of Madrid, although the majority of the places of interest are within walking distance.

Carry on walking uphill and you arrive at (plaza Jacinto Benavente), which is equally full of theatresand cafes in addition to a ‘churrería’ or ‘fritter’ shop where you can sample the world famous Madrid fritters served with hot chocolate. Strolling along the shop lined Calle Carretas brings you directly to the Puerta del Sol, which is the geographical centre of both Madrid and Spain itself.

From Jacinto Benevente you can also go left which takes you to the Plaza Mayor (Main Square) or right which takes you to the Santa Ana square, (Plaza Santa Ana) which boasts many cafes and terrace cafes and is famous for its nightlife.

Another option from Tirso de Molina is to cross the square in a westerly direction and head into the typical ‘LA LATINA’ district. ‘LA LATINA’ is famous for its numerous restaurants, in particular for ‘Cava Baja’ street where the famous CASA LUCIO, can be found with its world famous scrambled eggs.

In addition, on Sundays and holidays the district also plays host to the famous RASTRO flea market.

Heading downhill from the building takes you into the district of Lavapies. This is a multicultural district full of people of all different nationalities who intermingle with the elderly locals and younger residents who fill up the numerous buildings that are constantly being renovated.

‘Lavapies’ is characterised by the multitude of restaurants and ‘alternative’ venues which can be found here, in addition to the museums and galleries.

The REINA SOFIA museum and the VALLE INCLAN theatre can be found in Lavapiés, as well as ATOCHA station from which it is possible to take various day trips to other cities of interest, such as Toledo to name but one.
