About Martin Bardella

With a positive attitude the world most probably will smile back at you.

I'm originally from Berlin, passed through New York and Hamburg, and ended up in sunny Spain - first Madrid, now Barcelona. Am trilingual deutsch, english, español.

My interests span from photography, saxophone and yoga to travelling and 24/7 networking - with favourite destinations from TYO, HKG, KIX and BOG to WAW, LON, BCN and BER.

When outside my city, I prefer to stay at private hosts, a stunningly efficient and fun way to connect and personalize one's trip.

The inside is the new outside.

Martin Bardella purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Martin Bardella chose Arganzuela

I lived in this apartment for 9 years and recently moved to Barcelona.

With lots of experiences and recommendations up my sleeves, I am now renting out this fabulous 1BR+patio place and want to wish you a pleasant stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Telephone calls and WiFi are included in any booking. The vine covered courtyard is at your disposal, to enjoy your favourite beverage after a long day in the city.

Lavapiés is a historic and authentic district, that is known for its bohemian, artistic and multicultural environment.

Downhill at the Plaza Lavapiés the Carrefour supermarket and closeby Mercados Antón Martín and San Fernando provide you with groceries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wer Madrid erkunden möchte, ist in dieser Wohnung gut aufgehoben. Diese liegt ideal und zentral. Je nach Marsch ist man vom Bahnhof „Atocha“ bis zur Wohnung in 15 bis 20 Min. zu erreichen. Etwa 10 Min. entfernt ist man auf dem Platz „Puerta del sol“ und somit ist man mitten in der City. Wer an einem Sonntag sich dort aufhellt, der ist in unmittelbarer Nähe vom „el rastro“ (Typischer Trödelmarkt). Eine Karte für das öffentliche Verkehrsmittelnetz braucht man wirklich nicht, da alles ganz schell zu Fuß erreichen ist. Lebensmittel kann man in ca. 100 Meter im Supermarkt holen, der alle 7 Tage die Woche offen hat.



Die Wohnung ist voll ausgestattet und wer noch Zusatzinfo brauch, kann jeder Zeit den netten Besitzer kontaktieren, der umgehend mit der Lösung oder Tipp über den Festnetzanschluss sich meldet. Außerdem bekommt man bei Zusage reichhaltige Info vom Vermieter.



Da die Wohnung über einen Innenhof zu erreichen ist, kann man die Ruhe genießen da man vom Außenleben nichts mitbekommt.



Fazit, eine Wohnung zu empfehlen.



_____



Those wishing to explore Madrid, this is the best apartment. This is ideally and centrally situated. Depending on the march is to be reached in 15 to 20 min from Atocha trains station. About 10 minutes away you are on the pitch, " Puerta del Sol " and thus it is in the middle of the City. Who brightens on a Sunday there, which is very close to the " El Rastro " (typical flea market). You don't really need a card for the public transport, because everything is ringing within walking distance. The supermarket is just about 100 meters, open 7 days a week.



The apartment is fully equipped and who still need additional info, you can contact the friendly owner, who will give you a solution or tip over the fixed line immediately, at any time. You also get rich and usefull information from the owner.



Since the apartment is accessed via a courtyard , you can enjoy the serenity as the outdoor life doesn't pass through.



Conclusion: I would recommend this apartment.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this apartment in late August/early September. The entire process of working with Martin from the time we booked the place, to when we left, was smooth and supportive, and helped our trip planning tremendously. The apartment was a good size for us and looked just as it does in the photos. It was also well-located - we were within walking distance to the Reina Sofia Museum, Calle Huertas and also 15 minutes from Sol. We have never worked with an owner of this calibre before and the experience was a great one!

Quelques petites erreurs a rectifier

  • 3 of 5
La climatisation n existe que dans la chambre, dans le salon il n y en A pas , et le ventilateur s éteint quand on éteinte la lumière au moment d aller se coucher, il fait très chaud 29 degrés !! Le canapé lit, une fois ouvert ,tombe des qu une seule personne s y couche du côté mur ,ma fille est tombée avec le canapé contre le mur, faudrait en acheter un qui soit plus stable. Il manque des couverts,,,,pour le reste on a rien a dire, mr rodrigo est très disponible,et plein de bons conseils . il ne manque rien , la cour est très agréable,seul le quartier est un peu " "particulier", livré a lui même .. Ce n est pas le plus chic !!!

Owner's Response: (Scroll down for English)
Nous aurions apprécié que vous communiquer vos questions avec nous lors de votre séjour afin de les assister et de vous offrir une expérience encore meilleure, comme nous l'avons bien vouloir vous a aidé avec votre voiture et obtenir la permission de se rendre en voiture la zone réglementée du quartier. Comme vous avez choisi de parler de tout après votre départ, ces explications viennent en effet de retard:

1. La climatisation cela adapté pour refroidir tout le l'appartement, sans un élément qui a endommagé le design minimaliste de la salle de séjour. Je suis désolé ce n'était pas suffisant pour la vague de chaleur cette semaine.
2. La lampe a un petit interrupteur pour l'éteindre, laissant le ventilateur tourne toute la nuit, de cette façon que tous les autres clients l'ont fait, il fallait juste me demander si vous n'avez pas trouvé ce.
3. Le canapé lit est très stable, mais vous l'avez utilisé sans déployer les deux pattes avant de l'ouvrir, comme il était indiqué en détail dans les instructions, sans crochets ne peut être stable ou sécuritaire.
4. Il y a couvertes suffisamment pour quatre personnes, s'il manquait unes nous avaient dit; Nous avons disponible assez remplacement supplémentaire dans un tiroir de la cuisine.
-----------
We would have appreciated you communicating your issues with us during your stay in order to attend them and offer you an even better experience, as we kindly helped you with your car's permission to access the neighbourhood's car restricted area. As you chose to mention everything after your departure, these explanations are coming indeed late:

1. Air Conditioning is adapted to cool the entire apartment, without a component that damages the minimalist design of the living room. I'm sorry it was not enough for the heat wave this week. When you left, the ECO mode was active with half of the cooling power.
2. The lamp has a small switch to turn it off, leaving the fan running all night, you could've asked me if you were unable to find it.
3. The sofa bed is very stable, but we noticed when you left that you used it without deploying both back legs before opening, as was detailed in the instructions, without that support it cannot be stable nor safe. It seems strange you did not ask during your stay.
4. The flat has enough cutlery for four people, if you missed any element you could have asked me; we have available several additional items in a kitchen drawer.

Perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5
We have rented lots of apartments in Europe and often its just plain white walls and a few pieces of furniture from Ikea, that's ok but this apartment has much more. Its like walking into some ones home and it very quickly becomes your home.
It is located near shops and a metro but you can walk to lots of museums etc. It is in a vibrant multi-cultural district of Madrid, an area where ordinary people work and live. We are 2 ladies of somewhat mature years and we felt safe here.
There is everything you need in the kitchen, well a casserole dish for the oven would be nice but that's such a small thing.
The outside space is lovely and to say it is surrounded by other apartments it is very quiet.
That's about it, if you want a homely base in Madrid this is for you.
Also there is Lola the resident cat so be prepared to provide treats!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, thank you a lot for this marvellous feedback - I think even I had a marvellous time when emailing or telephoning you during your stay. Your note on the missing casserole dish is well appreciated and will be taken care of within the month of June, when I'll travel to Madrid. I hope you'll have lovely memories of this trip and may will come back next year.

Très bon emplacement dans Madrid et superbe patio !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans l’appartement de Martin. Tout est conforme à ce qui est décrit et présenté sur les photos : aucune mauvaise surprise à signaler. Au contraire, le patio est bien plus attractif qu'il n'y paraît : utilisé librement par les différents locataires, ombragé par une très belle treille et fréquenté par le sympathique chat Lolo, c'est le lieu de vie de l'immeuble où vous aurez plaisir à prendre un verre le soir. Aucun problème de bruit : les résidents, très respectueux des lieux, rentrent chez eux à 22 h.
De façon générale, l'appartement est très bien placé. Les environs sont calmes et à quelques minutes à pied du centre (Santa Anna, Puerta del Sol...). La station de métro Lavapiès est à 100 m environ de l'appartement. Sur cette place, on trouve aussi un supermarché très complet, précieux si vous comptez manger à l'appartement.
A noter également la grande disponibilité de Martin : bien que non-résident sur les lieux, il vous répond en quelques minutes par mail ou même par téléphone grâce à une ligne directe dans l'appartement.
Bref, un appartement à recommander chaudement si vous voulez découvrir la belle ville de Madrid !
