Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My wife and I loved everything about this apartment. It is exactly as descibed and the host Jose and his family are the most kind and attentive folks you'd ever hope to meet. The studio is extremely well appointed and maintained and the view from its fourth floor perch is amazing (as in the photo). It is conveniently located in the heart of oldest Madrid, close by several markets and the Plaza Mayor area. It is deep in the famous Cava Baja tapas bar neighborhood. On weekends the crowds are a sight to see and can e noisy but the apartment is above it all, with soundproof windows (and airconditioning if needed). If you enjoy walking and exploring, this place is highly recommended . You can reach all ofcentrsal Madrid on foot. Metro is close by too.

  • WOW. I have stayed at other airbnb apts and this was my best experience. Jose was wonderful as were all his family. He was very prompt in returning emails and gave very accurate information. When our plane was late he waited for us and then took us out for a drink to welcome us to Madrid.

    The location is perfect. Really everything is 15 minutes away. If you get tired you can take the metro but it's not necessary. The street is alive at night with bars and people and quiet during the day.

    I am a light sleeper and I slept great. The bed was comfortable and the apt quiet. You can not hear street noise. Everything in the apt is like the pictures. It's spotless. Everything works great. The shower has constant hot water.

    I wish I could have stayed longer. We stayed 9 days and did not tire of the city or the apt.

    If I could give 10 stars I would. Thanks Pepe :)

    Response from Jose:

    Thank you, Nicky. You are very kind.

  • The Jose's appartment is nicely situated in Madrid and is well equipped in term of furniture or household appliances. Despite its location in the center of Latina area it is also very quiet due to good windows and its top floor position. We clearly recommend it for a few days stay in Madrid.

  • Jose is a great host, backed up by his daughter they make a wonderful team :)
    They are easy to communicate with, very helpful, and although we had no problems it is good to know they live close by in Madrid.
    The place itself is amazing, you would never think you were in the very centre of the best area in Madrid for eating and drinking, once you hop in the lift to the 4th floor it gets very quite.
    Opening the windows though you can let some of the hustle and bustle from below get in, as well as gaze down on the open squares and take in the great views!
    You can walk to most of the attractions as well, but the La Latina metro is basically around the corner.
    The flat was very clean and is in good condition, with everything you need in the kitchen for a comfortable stay.
    It seems like they really do care about your visit, this was evident to me from the two red roses that greeted us on the bed on arrival as they knew this was part of our honeymoon trip :)

  • The flat was absolutely lovely - really comfortable bed, very quiet and with great views! Jose and Carmen were perfect hosts who were very accommodating to all our needs. It was a perfect location as well - walkable distance to everything and loads of nice bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Would definitely stay here again - highly recommended!

  • It was one the the greatest experiences of our family. Thanks to Jose and his family, who met us so warmly! We received breakfast and milk, because we arrived very late and with our small daughter there was no possibility to go to restaurant on that time after flight.
    LOCATION AND VIEW IS SO PERFECT. For 5 day we did all museums, we used taxi, metro, we were walking on foot... And we really did not want to go. I wish to Jose only the best people to come and to discover that beautiful place and country.
    This is 100% place to be. Very calm, no noise, but all the bars and restaurants are just down. Comfortable bad, everything is clean, kitchen is equipped... Plus Jose let us be very flexible with check-in and check-out. ANd we received bed for baby, so there was no need to bring it with us. No danger for kids at all there, because design is simple and not a lot of "unnecessary" thing. Beautiful place!

    All the best wishes to the family of Jose. And one more time thank you for your kindness and hospitality.

  • Such a pleasure to stay at Jose's place ! A very nice apartment, very clean, with an amazing view, and really convenient to discover the city!
    Thx again !

  • We had a wonderful stay at Jose's apartment - the photos don't do justice to the beautiful views over the city. The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable, but one of its best features is Jose. He was so welcoming and gave us lots of great suggestions of things to do in the neighbourhood. Madrid is a magical city, and the next time we visit, we'll definitely stay with Jose. Thank you, Jose!

  • José met us in front of the apartment exactly when we got there after a very long journey and took us up the lift to his cozy loft. It was very very comfortable, nicely decorated, with a spectacular view of La Latina. The view alone was worth the price of the apartment. There were a wide variety of Madrid guide and other books for our reading pleasure. The apartment is perfectly situated in La Latina, steps from the Mercado de Cebada and 10 minutes to the Plaza Meyor. There are also many places close by for a caña and right outside the front door. In spite of all the bars and restaurants in the area, the apartment was remarkably quiet at night.
    It was a perfect intro to Madrid. Thank you José!

  • Jose was the perfect host, he divuldged local knowledge to us and made sure we were comfotable in the flat. Jose had tea and coffee ready for us when we arrived and the flat was immaculate (perfect for our five days there!) The flat is in central Madrid surrounded by the fantastic bars and clubs in La Latina. We had a ball, Jose also went up and beyond his hosting duties, returning a lost item to use via mail after our trip had ended. Thank you Jose, we'd love to visit again!
