Small, but centrally located basement apartment

  • 3 of 5

For a family of four, this was a tight place. But for a quick and busy weekend trip to Madrid, it was a great, economical place to sleep. Everything is small space-wise, but impressively tucked into the basement of a historic building. The kitchen area in the main room has everything you need to cook small meals for four people. It is a very easy walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, with metro available in both. Don't miss Mercado de San Miguel - great place for tapas and wine. Easy access to major thoroughfares going through the city - just be aware that parking is at a premium in that part of the city. And don't expect lots of space in the apartment itself. If you know that going in, it's a good base for exploring Madrid.

Quiet, clean basement apartment, just around the corner from nearly everything!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three-night stay in Madrid over the new year, finding everything we needed in this tiny and efficient apartment. Our hosts were accommodating and friendly (she even texted the address of a hairdresser for me) and overall we had an excellent experience here. The elevator (even though we didn't use it) was a nice touch to a very charming building on a very quiet street. We were grateful for the space heater and the washing machine, and the shower was great once we figured out how to set the water heater (simple enough, but necessary for a hot shower or bath). I would have loved a hair dryer in the apartment, but otherwise, we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The trains are a little far--Sol Plaza is about a 10 minute walk, but the apartment is right off Calle Mayor and will provide a couple a happy haven from the busy streets of Madrid.

A friend and I, stayed at this cosy and well equipped flat on the basement floor a very old building.We were surprised how cool it was without air-con while really hot outside.

It was also perfect to get everywhere. The owner was very helpful, will come back!!

Ubicación muy buena. Casa en sótano, sin luz natural y con mucha condensación

  • 3 of 5

Ubicación muy buena. A unos pasos de la calle Mayor.

Es una vivienda situada en un sotano, sin apenas luz natural y con mucha condensación. Estuvimos unos dias con dos niños pequeños y cuando sacabamos su ropa del armario, al poco estaba mojada.
