Rafael's home was a perfect spot from which to explore Madrid. It was wonderfully welcoming and comfortable, warmly-decorated and equipped and provided us with all we could have asked for. It was located in a spectacular, lively and interesting neighbourhood within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in the beautiful capital of Spain. Rafael was a wonderful, welcoming host who provided us with lots of information, was always accessible, and even reached out early on in our visit to check that we were settling in well. We would highly recommend Rafael and his home as an ideal spot for any couple or single person visiting Madrid. Frank and Terri (Canada)

Apartment was centrally located and right next to Sol, so the location was was fantastic. The rental rate was a steal so that was good too! The apartment on the other hand was small, cluttered, dark and kind of humid. The air conditioning worked, but I found it still to feel humid in the apartment. There are no windows with direct light, so you don't know if it's sunny or not until you get outside. The shower runs out of hot water very quickly, so you have to wait 20 mins between showers to allow the water to heat up again. And lastly, the apartment has a strong floral smell, which is extremely noticeable when you walk in. It isn't a very bad thing, but it's very distinct, and I'm sure it's not for everyone. Stayed here with my boyfriend.

Rafael's place is the PERFECT location for your stay in Madrid. You can easily walk to all the main attractions, you have several Metro stops close by if needed and you are surrounded by an endless list if great restaurants and bars. His apartment is the perfect size for 2 adults and is within a minutes walk of a few markets where you can grab drinks and snacks for your stay. We would definitely stay here again if we ever visit Madrid again.

Rafa works hard to make sure everything is great for visitors. The apartment is clean and in a great location. I have stayed at a few airbnb's now and I would say on the whole, this is probably the nicest one we've stayed at.

Great experience renting from Rafa! Our flight arrived before normal check in time, and Rafa allowed us to get in early because the flat was ready! That was a big help! The flat is in a PERFECT location in the center of Madrid. We walked everywhere: Retiro Park, Sol, Plaza Mayor, Prado Museum, Palacio, Catedral all within walking distance. Lots of restaurants and lively plazas around. Great small grocery store around the corner. The flat is a compact one bedroom with nice living room, bathroom w good sized shower, typical European galley kitchen. Great size for 2 people. Very comfortable and clean! Perfect to have your breakfast/coffee before heading out, and great to rest in the afternoon w your wine and cheese. I would absolutely recommend this flat and would rent here again!! Muchas Gracias Rafa!!

My wife and I stayed in Rafael's apartment for a couple of nights in Sep 2017. Raf gave us a great and very warm welcome! It was a pleasure to get to know him. He was very flexible and helpful with check-in and check-out. Communication was flawless. We really enjoyed the apartment and had everything we needed. The location is absolutely fantastic. You walk out the door and you are where you need to be. Restaurants, bars, plazas everywhere. The apartment is in walking distance from Puerta del Sol, the Prado, Reina Sofia and Lavapies. If we come back to Madrid, we would stay in Raf's apartment again!

The location of Rafa's place is great. It's in the middle of so much and a fifteen minute walk to the atocha train station. His home definitely has a local feel to it. He's also a great host ... When I first arrived, he not only showed me in, but he made me an espresso and spent an hour with me answering my questions about the city and travel beyond it. He also texted me some info I needed from work and checked in with me a few times on my two day stay to ask how I was doing.
