Richard purchased this apartment in 1999
Great location in the heart of Madrid's coolest 'Malasaña' district, bright apartment in a restored historic building, very central. Two minutes from a metro sations and walking distance from just about everything.
Fantastic bars and restaurants just by the apartment, quiet enough for a good night's sleep but in the heart of the vibrant centre of the Spanish capital.
We spent 6 nights in this clean very well equipped apartment. We took the Metro from the airport to Tribunal station which put us about a 5 minute walk to the apartment. Richard made us feel very welcome when he met us at the apartment, gave a thorough rundown on the apartment facilities and the local area. We loved the location, a diverse locals neighborhood little impacted by tourists but convenient to the must see places. Lots of pleasant cafes bars and restaurants filled with people of all ages. Public transportation is easily available and inexpensive but we walked everywhere we went, its what we do on first visiting a city. Some reviews make a big deal out of the number of steps to the apartment, we counted 41. Not a big deal we are 68 and 69 years of age, travel with a backpack and a day pack for each of us and had no trouble negotiating the steps. They are clean, of normal width and well lit. Some reviews mention graffiti, yes there is graffiti but it is in the artistic vein befitting a diverse area versus threatening we felt safe walking day or night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Richard is an outstanding host, we look forward to visiting again.
Location the best, clean , facilities good. Three things need improvement: the fridge(cooler not functioning) ; owner must advice customers that the apartment in IN THE THIRD FLOOR with 60 steps to climb in a very narrow and steep stairway ; thirdly, the graffiti in the main door is "shocking". Thanks, dr Edrick Lopez Enriquez
This apartment is in a great location. It is a short walk to the Madrid metro station, where you can easily ride to all the important sites. There is a city park at the end of the block, where there is lots of places to shop and eat. The week end we were there, the park was really lively. Music played late into the night. The apartment is small and basic. There are lots of steps to the apartment.
We took the metro from the airport to Tribunal station, which was very easy and gave us a sense of how central the location is. The area is fantastic with lots of small businesses, plazas, and just generally great walking area to anywhere in Old Madrid. Easy to stroll Calle Fuencarral to Gran Via and on to Sol, Plaza Mayor and other sights. The owner, Richard, met us at the apartment and gave us both apartment and neighborhood info. We loved the apartment and the size and scale of it, everything you need but compact. We shopped daily and prepared simple meals, made our coffee with the wonderfully efficient stovetop espresso maker in the kitchen- it felt totally comfortable and like home. We used the washing machine and hung our laundry out on clothesline provided in central open area of the building (clothespins available under the sink). Downsides not many, but hot water needs a temperature regulator, while Richard warned about the scalding water, it is too easy to burn yourself. Also bedroom doesn't get light and feels closed in - we tied back curtain to let some natural light in through the glass blocks, bathroom has two existing lights over sink that did not have bulbs but should have.
Overall this place worked well for us. We had booked a 9-day stay and weren't disappointed. We would definitely recommend it.
Μειναμε σε αυτο το διαμερισμα το πρωτο Σαββατοκυριακο του Φεβρουαριου 2016.Ειμαστε ενα ζευγαρι με ενα παιδι 10 ετων.Γενικα ειμαστε ευχαριστημενοι απο την διαμονη μας,ο Ritchard (ο ιδιοκτητης) ηταν ευγενεστατος,το διαμερισμα βρισκεται στην καρδια της Μαδριτης,υπαρχει η σταση του μετρο σε αποσταση 300 μετρων.Το διαμερισμα ειναι στον δευτερο οροφο μιας παλιας πολυκατοικιας .Θα ελεγα οτι μενοντας εκει,κατα καποιον τροπο "ζεις"μαζι με τους κατοικους της πολης,δεν ειναι μια τυπικη ,αποστειρωμενη διαμονη σε ενα ξενοδοχειο..Ο υποψηφιος ενοικιαστης θα πρεπει να ξερει οτι δεν υπαρχει ασανσερ και οτι οι σκαλες , χωρις να ειναι ιδιαιτερα κουραστικες,ειναι λιγο στενες και σιγουρα προβληματικες για ατομα με καποια αναπηρια. Επισης, η θερμανση βασιζεται αποκλειστικα σε ενα air condition .Με τις θερμοκρασιες που επικρατουσαν κατα την διαμονη μας( 2-10c )
Τα μονα αρνητικα που θα μπορουσα να αναφερω ειναι μια ελαφρως ενοχλητικη μυρωδια (μαλλον ηταν απο τον κλιματισμο),και το κυριοτερο, το πολυ ολισθηρο πατωμα του μπανιου. Νομιζω οτι ο φιλος Richard θα επρεπε να κανει κατι απλο για να αποφυγει καποιο ατυχημα.
Επισης να αναφερω οτι στο ισογειο του κτιριου κανουν Ταυλανδεζικο μασσαζ .Δεν καταφεραμε να το δοκιμασουμε κατα την διαμονη μας γιατι ηταν απαραιτητη κρατηση καποιες μερες πριν.
