1. - FROM THE AIRPORT:
By cab: Costs 25-35€ Euros depending on traffic. 35 minutes journey.
By Underground: Costs less than 3 Euros. Take the line number 8 and get off at NUEVOS MINISTERIOS (last stop), then short connection to line 10 direction Puerta del Sur and get off at ALONSO MARTINEZ Station, then take line 5 direction to Casa de Campo and get off at CHUECA Station. It is 2 minutes walk from the station to the apartment. Even if it seems more complicated, I believe it is the best way and takes about 45-50 minutes.

Take the exit C/ Prim (PLEASE NOTE THE EXIT CLOSES AT 10PM). I recommend this way just in case you are not carry a heavy luggage as it is about 8 minutes walking fron the station.

Sofia was a great host, we communicated via email prior to our arrival to Madrid and by phone after that but she made herself easily available for us. She offered another 2 nights for free since our flight was delayed for 2 days because of the weather, which we couldn't avail unfortunately. The apartment was clean and the location was great. Would definitely stay there again if we get an opportunity to return.
This apartment was everything that we could have asked for and more. We had a wonderful time in Madrid, and this place was definitely important for our experience. For one thing, the apartment is well maintained, and you can tell the owner has taken every step to ensure that the experience is comfortable and homey. It is very clean and has the perfect kitchen to cook as small or large a meal as you may want.
As the other reviews have noted, the location is excellent. Location is important to us when we travel and we chose this apartment because it is right in the centre of Madrid. Most sights are within walking distance. There were plenty of nice places to eat meals and buy groceries very closed to the apartment. We used the metro to go to Las Ventas, the bullfighting ring, but otherwise walked every where we wanted to with great ease. There are lots of good restaurants close by and the nearby Market (just top of Barbieri) provided us with good food and whatever groceries we wanted during our stay.
All-in-all, a very pleasant stay, and the owner was extremely accommodating, friendly, and keep the place at a very reasonable price for everything you get by staying there. If we ever go back to Madrid, we will be staying here again.
We found this apartment perfect for our needs while staying in Madrid. Though we didn't get to meet Sofia in person (she was out of town) she made sure everything was in order and arranged for us to pick up they keys from the Porter. We had a couple of questions and she responded to our email immediately! The apartment was clean, the bed was comfortable and the apartment was quiet with fast wi-if and air conditioning. Our only complaint was the lack of a proper coffee maker. There was a single cup brewer, but we would have liked a French press or larger drip coffee maker-a very small concessions! We would highly recommend this apartment!
This little cozy apartment is located in the center area of Madrid full with restaurants, pubs and cafés. Is also very close to all sightseeing and attractions, we did everything by foot but if you need to take the subway, the station is also very close The apartment is perfect for couples or 3 person max. Is very clean and quiet. I definitely recommend it.
This cozy and clean apt. is in a fabulous location. The bed and pillows are very comfortable and the apt. is very well equipped. It is 3 blocks from a main street (Gran Via) for lots of shopping and a subway stop; 2 blocks from a stop for the Hop on Hop Off bus (in front of the Western Union); 1/2 block to a grocery store and just a 7 minute walk (Plaza de Cibeles) to the stop for the Express bus to the airport that costs only 5 euro per person!!! There are lots of bars and tapas restaurants in every block surrounding the apt. Puerto del Sol plaza where "all the action is" is just a 10 minute walk. We only stayed 4 days but I could have stayed twice as long! The owner is a delight to deal with, and is very helpful. If my husband and I decide to return to Madrid, we will be definitely booking at this apt. again.
Sofia is a great host. She made sure that everything is arranged and we are comfortable even though she was out of town during our stay. The apartment is conveniently located and generally has everything you might need during the stay. The area is very nice, safe, and within walking distance to all major attractions. I would definitely recommend this place to other travelers.
