Ingeniously designed apartment in downtown Madrid, close to the major museums, 2 minutes to subway station, recently refurbished. Access to a 150 sq.m. stunning vine covered patio full of roses, plants and small trees. Free internet WiFi and national phone calls available during the whole stay.

About Martin and Rodrigo

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 and yoga to travelling and 24/7 networking - with favourite destinations from TYO, HKG, BOS and BOG to HAV, 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 and Rodrigo purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Martin and Rodrigo chose Madrid City

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

Our host Martin was one of the most thoughtful hosts we have had over the years. We ended up here because our other location fell through at the last minute and this turned into a blessing. The location is an interesting, fun and eclectic neighborhood that features ethnic eateries mixed in with the traditional Spanish Tapas bars. The convenience of being 2 blocks from a 24 hour market and the metro was great. It's within a 15 minute walk of the Prado, and Sol making it the perfect location for us. The apartment was spotless and well equipped with everything needed for your stay. The building was quiet which is important as we are light sleepers. It faced into an interior courtyard with a large grapevine with beautiful hanging grapes and some communal tables that are available of the guests to use. The tenants of the building are quiet and all respectful of each other. Martin stayed in contact throughout the stay asking if everything was Ok and if there were any questions. I found this surprising as most other VRBO rentals we have stayed in have had little to no contact with us. It was like having a personal concierge for the city which was great since our Spanish is limited to Hola and Gracias. We fully recommend this apartment.

Our stay in Madrid

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was very convenient to the Prado, the Cathedral and center Madrid. It was quiet and well-equipped with everything that one would need. We enjoyed eating dinner in many nights. There was a supermarket located nearby. The only problem was with obtaining hot water but Rodrigo was very helpful with giving us the tricks to regulating the hot water tank. All in all it was a great stay.

Peaceful, quiet and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very quiet and peaceful, since you cannot listen to any sound from the street, like being outside of town but exactly in the center of Madrid.

The host was very informative, gave me a lot of information and was available whenever I needed.

The kitchen had everything one would need, although I did not use it much. The shower falling like a rain was splendid. Everything was very nice and clean.

Very recommendable.

Perfect little hideaway.

  • 5 of 5

Martin was there all the way, guiding us on our very late check-in to arranging a sizable discount on our rail to Cordoba. The complimentary wines - red and white - were perfect for us as we drank them at home with the takeouts we brought back. Very close to the subway and near a 24 hour grocery store. Overall, an excellent place to tour Madrid and expecially the museum district.

Very urban location

  • 4 of 5

Martin and Rodrigo communicated with us in a timely, helpful way before, during and after our stay. The apartment was clean and well-stocked and met our needs, but did look different than the on-line photos (main room and bedroom). We appreciated having the quiet of an inner courtyard location and a washing machine (a drying rack provided). The transitional Lavapies neighborhood has both a subway and very busy grocery store for convenience. We spent a majority of our time in the Prado Museum area, so for us it would have been more convenient to stay in that area.
