A beautiful two bedroom apartment in central Madrid, an easy walk to the Prado. Full of original art, and Scandi mid century. Located on the same street as Museo de Reina Sofia, this 19th century flat has high moulded and beamed ceilings, two large bathrooms, 8 balconies, washer/dryer.

The space

A corner building dating back to the 19th century, the apartment is on the second floor, and there is no elevator. Once you arrive you will find a beautiful high ceilinged lounge with moulded ceilings and four balconies, perfect for sharing a glass of Cava or Rioja as you watch la marcha below in one of Madrid's most characteristic neighbourhoods. There is fast WIFI, two very large bathrooms with original encaustic tile floors. And the entire apartment is tastefully furnished, and curated with original art. You are a stone's throw from the Mercado of Anton Martin, with the best sushi in madrid (Yokaloka, get there by 8pm as it is mad popular). You are eight minutes on foot from the Thyssen Collection, 6 minutes from Reina Sofia, 15 from the Prado, and just a bit more from the Retiro, Madrid's legendary formal park. Madrid is not a quiet town, it is a late town, and the flat is in the middle of one of the more animated neighbourhoods. There is no noise from traffice however, just from festejeros out for a good time.

Guest access

Access to all the space with the exception of a single glass cupboard where porcelain is stored.

Interaction with guests

Other things to note

Anton Martin is a lively part of town, much much livelier than Salamanca, or Moncloa, etc, which are virtually dead at night. For this reason it is very very safe. You have the Mercado de Anton Martin, arguably the last real market in Central Madrid that has not been converted (yet) into a tourist trap. Note that some bars open until past midnight on the weekends. It is rarely very loud, but it is not Omaha Nebraska quiet either. The flat is a walkup on the second floor, and the street entrance is quite basic. As I said this is not Salamanca; nor does it want to be.

There is a no shoes rule in the lounge as there is an 8 metre Beni Ourain on the floor that is of great sentimental value. I think you will find it very comfy without your shoes on the rug.

Great location that is easily walk able to everywhere we wanted to go in Madrid. We walked to the Palace, the Prado, the Parks and to a lot of squares. The metro stop is a block away if you prefer public transit. The home itself is like a museum with lots of artwork and decorations.

We spent a long weekend in Madrid. This was great apartment for us. Nice atmosphere with art, books and furniture with good taste. Great location because classical concerts (the concert hall of RTVE Orhcestra is around the corner), art museums and jogging in the the Retiro Park was our main agenda in town. It was nice to open the window shutters, see and hear the morning preparations at the market hall. And to buy things from the gourmet shops there. There is a lot of nice little restaurants nearby as well. Some noise we heard from the street in Friday and Saturday nights. That was not a problem for us. Franklin was very helpful and answered all the the questions we had quickly. We recommend this characteristic apartment.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed in. Stepping into the apartment felt like walking into a private mini museum, with tasteful artwork and vases decorating the entire place. Despite it's historic beauty, the apartment was modern and incredibly comfortable. The location of the apartment is fantastic, surrounded by markets, eateries, etc. Couldn't be better. As for the host, I have nothing but compliments for him. Incredibly communicative and welcoming, he was also very accommodating. I recommend this place to anyone traveling through Madrid.

We stayed five nights in late September, in the most tasteful and comfortable Airbnb we've ever had. From the art on display, the cool mid-century modern furniture, the super-comfortable superking bed, down to the designer cutlery and crockery, everything was just such high quality. Don't be put off by the dingy looking entrance; just up a few very manageable flights of stairs is a stunning apartment. It's less than 10 minutes to the Reina Sofia and the Thyssen-Bornemisza, and five minutes to the bars of Plaza Santa Ana. Be aware, though, that Madrid is a very late-night city, and noise will creep up to the apartment, especially if you want to go to bed early at the weekend. It didn't bother us in the least, and with the traditional window shutters the main bedroom was dark the way I like it, and we slept well. Note that the local underground station, Anton Martin, is closed until early November 2016, but we walked virtually everywhere anyway. We did not meet the host Franklin, but he sent his friend Juanma who was delightful at introducing us to the apartment. Franklin also responded to email enquiries immediately. I really can't recommend this place highly enough if you are a couple happy to pay a bit extra for a top-quality central apartment in what is probably Europe's most exciting city at the moment. Just beware the intensity of Madrid's heat if you are thinking of going in July or August.

Franklin's flat in Madrid is a rare find. Beautifully furnished, it is in the best location in old town. Step out of the door and you have restaurants, bars and food shops, even a movie theater. And it is walking distance to three museums - the Reina Sofia Contemporary Museum, the Prado, and the Thyssen. Franklin was very helpful in suggesting sights and activities, and the best places to go!

This is one of the most unique and gorgeous apartments I've been in, let alone stayed as a guest in. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and all our interactions were very pleasant. The neighborhood was absolutely wonderful and we were walking distance from food, nightlife and what seemed like every museum in the city. I can't say enough wonderful things about this apartment and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Madrid.
