The apartment has everything you need for an unforgettable stay: fully equipped kitchen (oven, microwave, fridge freezer, washing machine, kitchen, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, juicer, toaster, etc), the bathroom has a hair dryer . Plasma television. Air Conditioning and Heating. The flat is very bright as it´s on the fourth floor. The property has a lift.
Its location is ideal to visit on foot the center of Madrid and is only a few minutes from the main museums: Museo Reina Sofia, the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza, Caixa Forum ... from Puerta del Sol and the Gran Vía, one of the most cosmopolitan streets of Madrid.
The apartment is located in the most traditional Madrid, in the heart of "El Rastro" (the most famous flea market in the country), close to the area of Lavapiés. There the traveler can enjoy delicious tapas and the famous "cañas" (beer served in small glasses) typical of the area.
It is advisable to stay on Sunday, the only day of the week to enjoy "El Rastro" whose tradition dates back to the fourteenth century, when some traders start selling old clothes. The tradition lives on to this day and each year hundreds of thousands visitors walk it´s streets. It is highly recommended to get lost among the antique shops offering unique items at very competitive prices. But "El Rastro" offers a host of products for children and adults, to suit all budgets and tastes. So it´s hard to leave without buying anything.
The tradition is that after a hard morning of shopping (closes at around 3 pm) one must make a stop for sustenance at any of the bars offering in his food menu the famous "tostas" or "raciones".

EXCELLENT!!! in a good position (two minutes'walk from the Metro and about ten minutes' walk from all spots of interest, including the stadium of Atletico Madrid!), the house is wonderful, all white in the style of a seaside Mediterranean house, fresh, full oh sunlight, absolutely clean, brand new and fully restored by the owner, a friendly young architect (speaking a good English) that awaited us in order to welcome us and advise us about the best things to see, providing us with maps, telephone numbers and so on.
the house is perfect for a couple and good for three people. four could be a couple with a pair of children. beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped with even some food and a full range of soaps, the tv has even some English channels, heating goes on as you want and very easy to regulate, the bathroom has a powerful ,hot shower and bath,small but relaxing .We enjoyed every moment of our stay thanks to the sensation of fresh and clean, the furniture so modern and tasteful, the central position, the very quiet and safe area. rapport between quality and price is perfect! I strongly recommend it.
Muy recomendable para unos días inolvidables en Madrid. El apartamento está en el centro de la ciudad a unos minutos de la Plaza Mayor. Hay todo lo que se necesita en el piso. Todo fue súper limpio y muy moderno. Igor vino a darnos las llaves y todas las informaciones que necesitamos. Muchas gracias por todo!
El piso estaba muy limpio y ordenado. Puntualidad en la entrega de las llaves.
Muy céntrico, pero un poco pequeño para 4 personas.
Très agréable séjour dans ce petit appartement refait à neuf -très propre - bien équipé - calme - quartier vivant proche du centre.
à recommander vivement .
Todo excelente. Desde la recepción del anfitrión, más que puntual y comunicativo, hasta las calidades del apartamento. Muy buena ubicación, comunicaciones y muy cuidado. Deseando repetir
L'appartamento di Igor e' splendido.E' finemente arredato, I colori e gli arredi sembrano quelli di una rivista di moda. Tutto e' molto confortevole, E' in centro per cui non avrete problemi a muovervi a piedi, c'e' un minimarket e dei negozietti per cui potete approvvigionarvi per quello che riguarda l'alimentazione.L'accoglienza da parte di Igor e' stata speciale per cui vi consiglio questo appartamnto per trascorrere una vacanza speciale nella favolosa Madrid.
el lugar precioso, no faltaba de nada, el trato muy amable y la situacion excepcional. ninguna queja, al contrario, muy recomendable. disfrutamos de la estancia y de unas comodidades por encima de la media. sin duda, lo recomiendo
Igor's apartment was small but entirely adequate for tourists spending a few days in Madrid. All the furniture and fittings were of a high quality. The only down-side (over which the owner has little control) is that the communal courtyard from which the apartment is reached is scruffy and presents a dispiriting approach to the entrance to the apartment. That apart, the apartment is very convenient for the city centre (around a kilometre to Plaza Mayor) and the Metro is only a 5 minute walk. Connoisseurs of craft beer will also enjoy the Le Pedal Bar in Calle Argumosa, 10 minutes walk and virtually next to the Museo Reina Sofia.
What a find!
A lovely apartment, very comfortable - and quiet, even though it's only one street over from Las Huertas. Efficient double glazing, and air conditioning. Extremely well planned, everything you might need. Including a large umbrella - do look in the cupboard in the bathroom for more things!
Perfect position for the Prado etc., and for wandering in the evenings, especially up to Santa Ana. Easy to get to and from the Airport Expres bus at Atocha Renfe. The nearest metro stop is Juan Martin, only minutes from the front door.
Beer in the fridge when we arrived, and basics in the cupboards like salt, sugar, olive oil etc. A good supermarket in Calle Leon - right out of the front door, up to the T junction, right there and it's further down on the left. Open all hours!
All the immediate streets are very narrow and cobbled ish. Very little traffic. Feels like it's pedestrianised.
2 wardrobes, one full length hanging. Drawers. Good bedside tables will take lots of bits and pieces.
The apartment does feel like separate rooms even though it's open plan. The gap between the bedroom and kitchen not only has a floor to ceiling blind but also a full glass panel too.
Plenty of room for 2, and a third would be fine on the sofa bed.
We will be back...highly recommended.
(Do print off a street map of the area to take with you. We had guide books, but a map is easier.)
Thank you, Igor!
NB. The apartment is on the second floor (airier and quieter). So, two flights of a broad wooden spiral staircase. Very quirky - original, and worn over the years, so not completely even. I have balance problems, and had to take my time, but on the right going up/left coming down there is a very firm iron handrail, and on the other, wall, side a narrow fillet of wood which serves as a finger rail(!) The wall edge is the broadest side of the stair and is a good depth. I was fine.
However, it is a wonderful staircase, adds to the charm.
