We enjoyed this apartment. The location was fantastic- on a quiet side street right in the center of the busy Malasana neighborhood. It was a 15-20 min walk to the center and there were plenty of good local restaurants (Calle 30 around the corner for meat lovers). There was a Carrefour express down the block for groceries. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that the building is a bit sketchy. There are a couple of pensiones on the lower floors with odd, but relatively harmless older men coming in and out of the building. We very much enjoyed our stay.
We didn't get to meet the owner Jose Truchado, but didn't need to, as everything was well organised getting to and into the apartment and with his instructions and local tips.
The Malasaña area is very central and pretty bohemian trendy with lots of different, arty bars and restaurants on your doorstep.
It was as quick to walk than catch Metro around the centre of Madrid, being only 5 minutes walk from Gran Via and 10 minutes from Sol and Plaza Mayor.
The apartment was on the 4th floor and has no lift, which could be a problem for some, but we didn't notice it. Given it was on the top floor, there was no balcony or external view. There was a view over the internal courtyard.
The apartment itself consisted of 2 decent sized double bedrooms. One separated from the lounge by a sliding door and the other off the corridor.
Off the kitchen was the 3rd bedroom which has a single bed, with another pull out single bed underneath it.
We were a party of 2 adults and 3 teenage kids, so we used this pull out bed, but there wasn't too much room to move around, once the 2 single beds are both out.
Bunk beds ( one bed above the other ) would probably be more efficient use of space in this room.
Given the area has a number of late night bars the apartment was really quiet at night.
Some of the decor was a little dated and tired, like the kitchen, but functioned fine. The lounge had a 'lived in' feel, but was really comfortable. The large TV and DVD player worked well and there were plenty of UK plug sockets available. There was Cable TV, but only a couple of channel in English. Not a problem for us, as the only real TV we watched was Spanish football.
The dishwasher was out of order at the time we visited, but this didn't cause us a problem as we mainly ate out.
The apartment heating worked well ( it gets cold in Madrid in February ! ). For Summer there was A/C in the lounge and in 2 double bedrooms. The smaller single room had a fan unit.
One travel trip I would recommend that we stumbled across in Madrid was to visit the Gourmet Experience on the 9th Floor of the El Corte Inglés next to Callao Metro. It's free to visit for some great views of the city and Gran Via and also a great spot to eat /drink on the balcony. Also try rowing on the lake in the Retiro Park for around 5 Euros.
Overall we had a great week in the apartment and would definitely recommend it to families or groups. It's in a great location and was pretty good value compared to other places.
Our family of 5 have just returned from a stay in this great city central city apartment. It was in a quiet street in a buzzing neighbourhood, was good value for money and suited our needs perfectly. It was easy to use public transport or walk to all the main tourist attractions.
The flat is very modern and well equipped, there is an efficient air-conditioning system, and also a HUGE flat screen TV and wireless Internet - our grown up kids loved it.
The owner is incredibly helpful and provided some very good recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing in the area.
You do need to be aware that it is on the 4th floor and you should be relatively fit to climb the stairs.
We just came back from our visit to Madrid and stayed in this great apartment, my friends and I just loved it!!
The apartment is cozy, spacious and has all the amenities that we needed for our stay.
It was so nice to know that after a long day being out and about we had the big sofa and a huge TV waiting for us, afterwards we would go to one of the nice restaurants that are in the area nearby to end one of the perfect days of our trip.
Madrid is a fun city, there are many things to do and see but the city comes alive at night, when the many bars and restaurants are buzzing with people eating tapas and nice Spanish food.
We also saved a lot of money by staying in this place, being so central we never needed a taxi to go anywhere and it's just a short walk away from 3 subway stations so getting to the airport or train station was really easy.
I totally recommend this place!!
My family and I stayed in this nice flat in the middle of November, Madrid can be a very cold city but this flat was warm, nice and cozy, with the homey feeling we were looking for.
The flat is very modern, it has a HUGE flat screen TV and wireless Internet, and my daughters loved it.
The owner is very helpful and he provides some very good recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing places in the area which is most of what there is to see in Madrid as the flat is really central.
Although the street where the flat is located is very quiet the area is vibrant with bars, restaurants and coffee shops, all with excellent food. Also you can still see some of the old fish, fruit and groceries shop, everything looked fresh and beautiful
I would highly recommend this property if you want to be in a central area where you don't need to use the car or public transport to move around.
Our family of five stayed here for two nights in April. The apartment was a walk up on the 4th floor, which was a bit of a struggle with the suitcases but otherwise ok.
The location was fantastic, close to a good metro line for getting to and from Atocha station and the airport. It was in a quiet street and only a few minutes walk into the centre of town. A small supermarket was at the end of the street and lots of other small neighbourhood stores nearby.
The owner was fantastic to deal with, very obliging and always prompt to reply to any queries. The apartment was roomy for the centre of Madrid and as can be seem from the photos decorated in a cool funky way. It could have been a bit cleaner, but I think there had just been a change in the person looking after the apartment.
Would recommend this apartment and certainly look at staying here again were we to return to Madrid.
Located in the Malasaña neighbourhood one of the most distinctive and central places in Madrid, where the movida Madrileña started which would include people that would later become famous like movie Director Pedro Almodovar and actress Penelope Cruz.
A short walking distance from Madrid's mail landmarks Sol, Callao, the Gran Via, Plaza España and the Royal Palace, the area is thriving with good restaurants and trendy shops, this is definitely one of the best areas to discover the real Madrid.
