Really great apartment in a really great location. Everything is walkable. The blackout blinds were dangerous.

We had a great stay here. The apartment was comfortable,homely, had character and is obviously very well looked after. Great for a couples weekend away. Location was superb. Most of the sights were walkable -we rarely needed to use public transport. There are some great local cafes and bars nearby. Arranging arrive and dropping off the key at the end of our stay was easy. Thanks Marian

We loved our 1 month stay at Marian's! The apartment has the perfect location. It's close to 2 metro stops and walkable to all major sites. There are tons of great restaurants and tapas bars in the area. In addition, there are many quaint shops within a few blocks. Despite being so close to everything, the apartment was located in a calm and quiet street. Marian did a great job sectioning off the bedroom in the studio apartment so there is a lot of privacy between the rooms. We would definitely like to stay there again!

Marian was very welcoming. She constantly checked on me during my one-month long stay. The apartment is in a great location near the center of the city. It's a clean and well-organized apartment. I really enjoyed the location and the arrangement of the apartment. The main shortcoming of the apartment was the smell of it. There was a strong odor in the entryway that wouldn't go away. If Marian can fix this, she'll have an excellent apartment. It was difficult to handle the smell, but the apartment is great besides that. The host was very helpful, but couldn't get rid of the smell while I was there.

Response from Marian:
I was out of town during Nigel's stay at my apartment. I first tried to contact my neighbour, but he wasn't in Madrid, then I proposed Nigel to send the cleaning lady to check it out (when she did one week later (Nigel was out of town) she told me there was a slight smell, but not disgusting). Then Nigel proposed to buy an air freshener and I have reimbursed it. I thought it had solved the problem. Unfortunatelly there must have been a piping/drain issue. I've asked my neighbours and it seems that there's a problem with the pipes of the building. Unfortunatelly the superintendent can't do anything until September (August in Madrid is completely "out of work"). They will fix the problem in September. So sorry for the inconvenience.

Although I didn't meet Marian she was always available for questions and advice and a real pleasure to work with. The apartment itself felt like home and was exactly what I wanted for a great Madrid experience. I highly recommend this place.

Hi there...

Mmm... so difficult describing myself...
I'm a Professor of Italian Cultural Studies at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). I love teaching, but I really needed to find the way of working a bit less and travelling a bit more, and... voilà!!! I discovered Airbnb!!!

I've been travelling since I was 15, I've lived in Italy for 6 years, I've spent some time here and there and now I live part-time in Madrid and part-time wherever life takes me... I must say I've been very lucky while travelling around the world and met wonderful people, therefore hospitality and making people feel at home while staying at my place is one of my priorities.

And, what do I like? Mostly everything (I'm compulsively curious): travelling, reading, cycling, independent cinema, french music, yoga, squash...
