The apartment is very nice, modern, bright and welcoming.
It has two bedrooms: one with double bed and one single bed. The lounge has an amazing light and the window onto a wide aveniday, Walk of Hope, which separates the two lanes by a grove. The apartment looks like a loft, but divided into two zones: one with the bedrooms and bathroom (fully independent), and the other open to the kitchen, lounge and dining room. The decoration design complements the stone wall and cowhide rug that gives a cozy atmosphere. Have a sofa bed 140 very comfortable and easy to open and close. A flat screen TV and a DVD will help you more enjoyable evening after a day of long walks. Of course you can not miss Wifi, very important in these times. The dining area is below the room but decorated in a way that gives independence. As an open and release, the kitchen is decorated to blend with the dining room and lounge. It is equipped with Hob, fridge, camapana for odors, washing machine, microwave and toaster. It pans, pressure cooker, pans, crockery, glassware and cutlery for 6 people. There are things for emergency breakfast until they have the opportunity to make their own purchases. The bathroom walls are mixed with stone and marble that gives a modern twist. You also have available an iron and ironing board. A clothesline, in case it rains, and another outside overlooking the courtyard. 'Is located on the first floor and has no elevator.
The apartment also has cleaning products, toilet paper, hand soap, dish rag, lullabies, mitt and kitchen towel roll.
At 150 m there is a supermarket. There are bars, restaurants and shops.
The metro is 'Acacias', a 7 minute walk. There are also several buses.
Although the apartment is beautifully surrounded by public transport, you can walk to the famous Rastro, Green Corridor, the Atocha Renfe station and if you like to walk, the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza the CaixaForum, Toledo Gate, the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Royal Palace (3 metro stops) is not too far.
First off, Marina (apartment owner) is such a joy to deal with - very humble, down-to-earth and super friendly. In-addition, her apartment is exactly what you see in the photographs. We are a family of 5 from sunny Dubai, and Marina's apartment made for a splendid stay. It had all the amenities - fully equipped kitched with a washing machine. The master bedroom was spacious (good for 2 people), the secondary bedroom (good for one) and the sofa bed in the living room (good for 2) - and everything was well thought out and clean. Marina went out of the way to tell us of the many attractions in and around Madrid and how to get there - she always responded to my WhatsApp messages.
The apartment is located in a quaint residential area with 2 restaurants within 2 minutes walking distance - both these establishments have extremely friendly owners and make you feel right at home. There is also a supermarket within 2 minutes walking distance. We decided to go with the daily EUR 8.95 transportation card (includes unlimited rides on the bus network and metro) - there is a bus stop just round the corner from the apartment (one minute walk away) as well as a metro station uphill (around 10 mins brisk walk). All in all, the apartment is well connected to the transportation hubs - so sight-seeing is a breeze.
I would definately recommend Marina and her apartment to anyone visiting Madrid - it was a joy to deal with her, and we will be back in the near future.
This place is 100% accurate with the pictures you see. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and trust me I am OCD so it is quite difficult to please me....this place is very clean and has everything you need to feel at home. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the shower was very spacious contrary to many apartments in Europe and the kitchen had pots, pans, utensils, all the dishes you could possibly need, a toaster, dishwasher and a washer and dryer. Oh and I must not forget to mention there is a grocery store literally right outside the apartment. It is an easy 2 minute walk. The metro is also a 10 minute walk away although we hardly used it since you are able to walk to many attractions. There are also quite a few shops and restaurants within walking distance of the apt. I cannot express in writing how wonderful Marina the owner of this apartment is. She goes above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable and at home in her apartment. As soon as we arrived she welcomed us and spoke to us for quite awhile as we had many questions about Madrid. She always made us feel that we could call on her not only for anything having to do with her apartment but with our travels in Madrid. Prior to our arrival to Madrid Marina told us about What'sApp and began texting us even before we left Texas to get our travel details since we were staying with her TWICE on our trip. We stayed here TWICE since our travels consisted of Spain, France and London and then we backtracked from London to France and Spain. Marina greatly facilitated our arrival and our return to Madrid! She even called a cab for us when leaving to France and when returning back to Texas. Now that is great customer service! When traveling abroad you need someone you can rely on for information and Marina is that kind of person. She treated us like family and we cannot thank her enough for all she did to make our stay comfortable! I would definitely recommend this apt. to friends and family. If you are searching for clean, spacious, inviting, great rates, close to transportation, close to restaurants and shops, grocery store nearby and a above and beyond homeowner who will be there for you if needed look no further....you found it! Gracias Marina por todo! Espero si vienes a los Estados Unidos que sabes que tienes familia en TEXAS!!
I wanted to introduce my children to Spain, and as this was their first trip, I wanted it to be perfect. Plus, I was a little apprehensive about renting an apartment, having never done this before. Well, I am so glad that I found this listing and I found Marina, as she made the whole trip a wonderful success!
Right from the beginning, Marina put me at ease by promptly responding to all of my emails, and politely and patiently answering all of my many questions. She offered advice about everything: from getting taxis from the airport, to getting tickets to the bullfights. Plus, she stayed connected with us throughout our trip via text messaging.
As for the apartment: it was exactly as depicted in the pictures. It was VERY clean, modern and extremely well maintained. There were 5 of us - 3 kids (9, 12 and 16) and 2 adults - and it accommodated us comfortably. Marina provided plenty of clean towels and linen, and the kitchen was very generously stocked with all of the cooking and eating utensils that we needed, and even extras like paper towels, napkins and cleaning supplies. The TV and Wifi worked perfectly, allowing us some down-time at night from all of our sight-seeing. Per the previous reviews, the supermarket and shops were just down the street, making it easy to stock up on food. And of course, there were lots of restaurants and bars nearby too.
The apartment is fairly centrally located; about a 10 minute walk from Acacias metro station, where you can take Line 5 directly to Gran Via. It's also about a 20 minute walk to Atocha station (5 minutes if you take bus E1), which is practically a stone's throw from the Prado, Reina Sofia and Retiro Park. If you get tired of all the crowds, you can sneak away to the local park down the street, which has lots of lovely walking paths, and fun amenities such as a splash park and play areas for the kids. And there's the local pool across the road too, which is free on Sundays.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this apartment (and about Marina). My family and I had a great 12 days in Madrid, thanks to the comfort and the peace of mind of having a fantastic place to stay! We can't wait to come back!
The apartment has everything and there's a grocery store right down the street, so it was really easy to grab picnic food and groceries for dinner. If you like parks, it's a 5 min walk to the beautiful river walk and only 15 mins walk to the Reina Sophia Museum & Prado Museum and Retiro Park. We loved every minute of our week in Madrid and want to thank Marina for making our stay so comfortable. It's excellent value and we will definitely stay here again!
Our family (two adults and a baby) stayed in the apartment one month in March 2014. We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything in the apartment was as in description and it was clean and cosy. The neighborhood is peaceful and the close location of The Arganzuela Park was really nice. If you like to go jogging or just walking this is a perfect place .
In the area there is a good variety of supermarkets and restaurants. Also the railway station and museums (eg. Reina Sofia, Prado) and Retiro Park are only 20-30 minutes walks.
The owner is really helpful and kind person. We would highly recommend this apartment :)
I rented this apartment for 2 weeks to introduce my family to Madrid. Overall, we were very happy with the apartment. These are my comments/observations:
1. The listing description is very accurate.
2. The apartment works best for up to 3-4 people.
3. The Internet connections is good. It got to test it since I worked remotely during our stay.
4. The customer service was excellent. The owner was there on time, we connected through WhatsApp and she promptly answered all the questions I had during our stay.
5. The apartment is close to the center (10-15 minutes of walking to reach Atocha), In the opposite direction, very close to the apartment, there is a nice, extended park that goes along the river.
6. There is a supermarket located right in the building, but there is also a Mercadona about 5 minutes away with a farmer's market.
We highly recommend this apartment to other renters.
We live in DFW area in Texas.
A 15 min walk from the Atocha train station (AVE, regional and commuter trains), and the famous and typical Rastro. A 30-45 minute walk from the Paseo del Arte (Museo Reina Sofia, Museo del Prado, Caixa Forum, Lit House, Botanical Garden, Museo Thyssen Bornemisza ...). Very close to the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace, Gran Vía .. With all the services and well connected.
