Excelent option for those searching for a bright, silent and charming place, for a good price and right the city centre.

• IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CHRISTMAS: WE ACCEPT NO BOOKINGS WITH CHECK IN/CHECK OUT ON 25TH DECEMBER, 1ST AND 6TH JANUARY. LATEST TIME FOR CHECK IN ON 24TH AND 31TH DECEMBER IS 4PM. RESERVATIONS THAT DO NOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS SHOULD BE CANCELED BY THE GUEST.

The space

We are renting this cozy, bright and silent home in the most bohemian, multicultural lively neighbourhood in Madrid: Lavapiés.

The apartment is bright (with lots of light) cozy and extremely silent. It's perfect for a couple but the couch can be converted into a single bed, so three friends or a couple with a baby could also fit perfectly.

The apartment is in the fourth floor of a walk up building, like most buildings in the centre of Madrid... so NO elevator, but I can always help you with your luggage if you are carrying so much weight:)

Guest access

The apartment is well equipped and WI-FI is available during your stay. There is also a 32 inches TV. The flat is composed of living room, kitchen and a bedroom which includes an adjacent room used as studio and wardrobe. Though small, the space is very well used and more than enough to meet your needs while on holiday, study or business trip. Here you'll find everything you need. Of course fresh linen. Maps and a guide of Madrid and sorroundings will be available during your stay! Just tell us what you need and we'll be happy to help you with anything you may need during your stay.

Baby cot available under request, 10€/stay

Other things to note

• Our check in time is from 4pm, meaning that by that time the apartment will be ready for use (although often ready before). However, if you come to Madrid earlier, we will make our best to allow you to let you luggage and we will give you the keys from 11:30am during week days (at no extra cost, it is simply a courtesy) or at the time when the cleaning lady is there on weekends (although we'll try to adjust her schedule to yours).
• We accept late check ins from 21:00, so that we can offer two options:
1.A pick up from the airport with the taxi driver we normally work with. He would pick you up at the arrivals hall at the airport and bring you to the apartment, leaving you settled. The cost of this service is the normal rate from/to the airport (30€) + 10€.
2.Reception in the apartment from 9pm to 11pm with a late check in fee of 15 euro; and from 11pm to 1.30am, with a late check in fee of 25 euro, payable upon arrival.
Please contact us before take a decision to make sure which of the options is doable to your case and situation.
•Check out is by 11:00 a.m. (unless you have arranged otherwise with us). You can leave the keys on the table and close the door behind you.
•Please do not leave trash in the apartment. Please note above instructions for taking out the garbage (as it needs to be done the night before, we understand there may still be a little garbage left from the morning you leave).
•Please do not leave dirty dishes and you leave the apartment reasonably clean and tidy.
•If something breaks during your stay, please let us know -- we understand that accidents happen! We’d like to know so that we can fix or replace it prior to the next guest’s arrival.
•Parties are not allowed, nor is any loud noise after 10pm in the apartment or at any time in the common areas of the building (entrance, stairwells, elevator if applicable). We kindly request you to keep the volume to a minimum when in these common areas. We care about our neighbours and respect for them is a must. If we receive well-founded complaints from any neighbour regarding the behaviour of guests, you'll be immediately requested to leave the apartment and Airbnb will be notified. We are very flexible and easy-going people, but disturbances to neighbours are a real issue.
•No smoking in the apartment.
•Only people who are officially on the reservation can sleep in the apartment.
•Please be sure that you’ve turned everything off (lights, AC, electronic equipment, etc) when you leave the apartment and when you check out.
•The Spanish legislation requires us to notify to the police the data of all people staying in the apartment; so we must ask you to show us your passport. We are not passionate about the idea, but the rules are the rules ...

• In case you plan to arrive after 9pm, check in can be arranged by any of the following options:
1. A pick up from your arrival point (train station/airport/bus station) with the taxi driver we normally work with. He would pick you up and bring you to the apartment, leaving you settled and giving you a set of keys. The cost of this service is 10€ plus the regular taxi fare.
2.Reception in the apartment by us from 9pm to 11pm (subject to payment of 15 euro as late check in fee). Unfortunately after 11pm we are not able to meet you in person, so the taxi would be the only option.

• AVISO IMPORTANTE PARA NAVIDADES: NO SE ACEPTAN RESERVAS CON CHECK IN O CHECK OUT LOS DÍAS 25 DE DICIEMBRE, 1 Y 6 DE ENERO. EN LAS RESERVAS CON LLEGADA EL DÍA 24 Y 31 DE DICIEMBRE, EL CHECK IN TENDRÁ QUE HACERSE ANTES DE LAS 4 DE LA TARDE.
• El horario de check in a las 4pm se refiere a la hora a la que el apartamento estará listo para su uso (aunque muchas veces estará listo antes). No obstante, si llegáis a Madrid antes de esa hora, podemos intentar recibiros para que dejéis las maletas y os demos las llaves a partir de las 11:30 entre semana y a la hora que esté la limpiadora el fin de semana (sin coste adicional, es simplemente una cortesía).
• Aceptamos entradas tardías a partir de las 21:00 (late check in), para lo que ofrecemos dos opciones:
-un servicio de recogida por taxista que os deja en el apartamento y os entrega las llaves (coste del trayecto + recargo de 10€)
-Recepción en el piso por nosotros con suplemento de 15 euros, si llegas entre las 21h y las 23h. Por desgracia, más tarde de las 23h no os podemos recibir en persona y la única opción posible es el taxi.

Cuando nos déis los datos de vuestra llegada a Madrid veremos qué opción es la más adecuada.
• A menos que se haya acordado lo contrario con nosotros, el check out tiene que hacerse antes de las 11:00. Podéis dejar las llaves en una mesa y cerrar la puerta.
• Por favor, no dejes basura en el piso. En el manual del apartamento explicamos dónde se deposita la basura (como en Madrid hay que sacarla la noche antes, entendemos que puede quedar algo de basura generada la mañana de vuestra salida).
• Por favor, no dejes platos sucios y deja el piso razonablemente tal y como lo encontraste.
• Si algo se rompe durante vuestra estancia, no esperéis a que lo descubramos cuando ya os hayáis ido. Entendemos que los accidentes pueden pasar, pero nos gustaría poder tener el tiempo de arreglarlo o sustituirlo antes de la llegada de los siguientes huéspedes.
• En el edificio vive gente anciana, niños y trabajadores y para ellos pedimos máxima consideración por vuestra parte. No se permiten fiestas ni ruidos a partir de las 22h o, en cualquier momento del día en las zonas comunes del edificio (portal, escaleras y, de haberlo, ascensor). Cuando estéis en las escaleras os rogamos encarecidamente hablar en un tono normal. Cualquier queja fundamentada por parte de los vecinos comportará que se os pida que abandonéis el piso inmediatamente y que se comunique el hecho a Airbnb.
•Nos gusta el aire puro, así que no se puede fumar en el piso.
•Solo las personas que han reservado pueden dormir en el piso.
• La normativa española nos obliga a comunicar a la policía los datos de todas las personas que se alojan en nuestros pisos; por ello a vuestra llegada tendremos que pediros que nos enseñéis vuestro documento de identidad. No nos apasiona la idea, pero las reglas son las reglas...

Our stay at the apartment was unfortunately cut short by an early morning break- in burglar who climbed in the bathroom window while we were sleeping, which was harrowing. However Oscar was amazing - he helped us with calling the police, translations, giving them his contact details given our spanish is limited, bringing us to the police station and kept us informed later in the week of what the police found. We don't want this to affect future stays here - the apartment is otherwise wonderful and exactly what it looks like in the photos - clean, accessible and functional. Oscar said he will get metal bars installed over the bathroom window immediately (the windows on the other floors below already have bars). Also this was the first time this has happened to this apartment after over 100 guest stays. I'm sure we were plain unlucky. Shaken, minus some belongings, but unhurt. We would overall recommend the apartment but firstly check with Oscar whether or not the bars have been installed over the bathroom window. The apartment is on the 4th floor so the other windows in the other rooms are not so accessible as the bathroom one (which overlooks the stairwell of the building). Once the bars are in place, i'm sure it will be completely fine to stay there. And don't get put off by "bars" as you'll notice practically all windows in Madrid are barred (well we certainly noticed that afterwards!). Its really a great apartment and our only regret was that we couldn't stay there longer!

Oscar and Vanessa are great hosts, good to communicate with, helpful, friendly and conscientious. There were lots of helpful tips and advice on Madrid and the apartment was in a great location with a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars very close. Its situated in a colourful part of the city and within walking distance of many of the city sights. Highly recommended.

The hosts were great, very communicative and accommodating. The neighborhood is super cool, lots of nice bars and restaurants and close to everything. Strongly recommend it!

Quiet apartment in a cool neighborhood. The area is pretty hip and has many cheap bars and restaurants, so it's getting more popular. The apartment is at the top floor so it's very quiet for the neighborhood, although it is undergoing renovations. The location is very central and close to the metro, convenient to visit the city even if you don't have a lot of time.

Awesome place to stay. Quaint. Near everything touristy. But also located in a neighborhood that made you feel like a local. The hosts were helpful and the place is very clean. I'd stay here again.

The place was really nice. Very clean and located in a perfect spot. Oscar was very inviting, gave us lots of information, and answered all the questions we had. The only downside was the shower was really small. Perfect for what we needed but I could just barely turn around. Other than that the apartment was amazing and I would stay again.

This place is located in the Lavapies netneighborhood which holds loads of nightlife activities as well as many places to eat that are great and located very close by. It is also located very close to a metro stop which made traveling and seeing the city very easy and convenient. The place itself was very cozy and spacious for two people, three or four would still have enough room to be comfortable. The hosts also had list of places they recommend to eat and drink at that were very helpful in helping us navigate where to go to. Check in was amazing as they went above beyond when they held on to our baggage since we arrived 4 hours early before check in. Definitely would stay here again, and if we come to Madrid to re-visit, my first choice will be this home!

Hi!!

We welcome you to Spain and we wish you a good stay in Madrid!

Oscar works as a photographer and Vanessa is an actress and theatre producer (during 2017 I became mum, so I won't be doing check in's for a while). However, until some years ago Oscar was an engineer and Vanessa was a M&A lawyer. And then one day we decided to turn our lifes up side down and follow our real passions.

We are best friends and on May 2012 we decided to move forward and enroll in a small business together. Vanessa had been hosting with Airbnb for 2 years by then (renting the spare room at her place in Madrid/Milan and her apartment in Barcelona) and her experience (upgraded to Superhost in early 2011) was so positive that we decided we could also help other owners that don't live in town or don't have the time to rent their properties to travelers as you. And this is what we are doing now together.

More about us, we love to travel: Vanessa has travelled 4 out of the 5 continents with a backpack that has been with her for 18 years now and now has enrolled in her new adventure: becoming a mum in spring 2017. Conversely, Oscar travels by bike and closer to Madrid, so as often as he can he takes his bike for a short trip in the mountains (he's really fit!). He has also spent several summers working in France. As the business grew, we took more people on board. Firstly Paula, a Venezuelan that has been living in Madrid for 11 years now, also keen on travels and on exploring new places. Paula is full of energy and we love her smiley caracter. And last but not least, Javi, whom you'll see on weekends and public holidays (and more often now that the Vanessa's baby is here!).

We are also keen in meeting new people and learning new things from them, but more importantly, we want you to feel at home at any of our apartments and that you feel that there's someone in town who cares for you:-)

We enjoy little life pleasures like riding our bicycles or growing our small organic vegetables gardens. We like eco-friendly environments since we care a lot about our planet.

We will help you to find you like home in this beautiful city and we look forward to having the opportunity to meet you soon!!
