About this listing

Feel at home. This is my home and I'd like it will be yours too. I rent my home to make you feel Madrid as your home city. It's not a business. It is survival. I have no more houses to rent. Bright, quiet and cozy two bedroom apartment (3 beds) in the heart of the city, 5 minutes walking from the main tourist sites, from the Plaza Mayor to the Puerta del Sol, the Royal Palace and Lavapiés.

The space

Last floor in the most madrilenian heart of the city: the traditional Rastro Sunday open market. Full of bars and restaurants, typical and new cuisine. Subway and bus stops: La Latina, Tirso de Molina and Lavapies (the most cosmopolitan suburb in Madrid. Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol (Km 0 of Spain; train) and Atocha square (train, AVE=long distance speed train) 10 minutes walking. The most importants museums in just a walk.

Internet wifi. Thousends of CDs to listen at home. Huge WC and tiny but gorgeous kitchen shared with me. You can use all my cooking utensils, toaster, microwave, oven, refrigerator and freezer, and I could lend you a couple of towels for the spa shower and bathtub. You can also use the washing machine and clothesline.

Everyone who came to my place told the same words about it: nice and cozy ;-) And not everyone were my friends;-D

Guest access

The whole house for you.

The neighbourhood

My neighborhood is the traditional center of the city, the most cosmopolitan and lively, with all kinds of people, restaurants, bars, theaters, shops and, above all, with the centenary attractive Sunday market (and holidays ) Trail. It is between La Latina and Tirso de Molina, a thousand meters from the Puerta del Sol and in the upper area of Lavapies.

Getting around

The area does not even require using public transport: you can walk to everywhere. There are dozens of buses and three underground stations: La Latina (2 minutes), Tirso de Molina (4 minutes) and Embajadores (7 minutes).

Other things to note

You can smoke into the house.

Many thanks Sonia, we liked your beautiful and cozy apartment and we have to point out that it was very clean! The apartment is very well located and just 5 Minutes away from the quarter „La Latina“, which is very central and you will find amazing tabas-bars there. Everything is very close-by and reachable by foot. Thank you again Sonia, you and Madrid mad our stay unforgetable.

Sonia is a super host! Welcomed us after arriving late in the airport, helped us with Madrid maps and was kind enough to give us recommendation to where to go. The apartment is super well located in La Latina, easy to go every where.

We had a great time in Sonia's apartment. Sonia is a great host and made me feel very welcome from the start. The apartment is nice, cosy and has a lot of light and space. The location can't be better: in the middle of the nicest neighborhood of Madrid. With lots of nice, local bars, restaurants and small shops just around the corner. I can highly recommend it!

The flat is brilliantly located and I absolutely love the decor! Sonia has collected all sorts of interesting things and it was fun looking around the place. Her neighbour let us in as Sonia was not around. Her neighbour was very helpful and friendly and gave us some good tips about what to do. Everything you need is available on the flat and we were very happy there.

Thanks a lot, Gemma. Pretty glad you enjoyed my place and the neighbourhood. Many of the 'curious' things at my place I did myself. Other are... you know, as curious as me. Pity not to meet the aussie guy. Please send my love to him. Hope see you someday!
