Über die Gastfamilie
- Willkommen sind
Wir sind eine vierköpfige Familie, obwohl wir derzeit nur drei in Madrid leben, weil unsere Tochter als Krankenschwester in einer anderen Stadt (Huesca) arbeitet. Wir sind Isabel, Michel und Lucas, die 22 Jahre alt ist und Physiotherapie an der Universität studiert. Wir wohnen in der bekannten Grünen Halle neben dem Fluss Manzanares im Stadtteil Latina, der zentralen Zone Madrids. Wir sind 12'andando von der Puerta del Sol und der Plaza Mayor, neuralgischen Zentren der Stadt. So genießen wir die Ruhe und die Sportmöglichkeiten der Green Hall, die entlang des Flusses gebaut wurde, und gleichzeitig befinden wir uns in der Nähe des Zentrums von Madrid im Herzen von La Latina mit seinen Straßen voller Terrassen, Cafés und Restaurants. Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig und sicher.

Über die Gegend
Unser Haus befindet sich neben dem Hall Green, das kürzlich entlang des Flusses Manzanares gebaut wurde. Ganz in der Nähe des Fußballstadions von Atletico Madrid, der spanischen Meisterliga. Wir sind 10 Gehminuten von der Puerta del Sol und der Plaza Mayor entfernt. Das Hotel liegt im Distrikt Arganzuela-America und genoss die ruhigen Sport- und Freizeitmöglichkeiten des Grünen Korridors sowie die lateinamerikanische Atmosphäre mit seinen Cafés, Terrassen, Restaurants, Bars und dem Multikulturalismus. Es ist eine sehr sichere und schöne Gegend zum Leben. Wir sind Teil einer Urbanisation aus drei Gebäudeblöcken mit einem gemeinsamen Innenraum zum Entspannen oder ruhigen Lesen. Wir haben mehrere Buslinien neben der Haustür und die nächsten U-Bahn-Stationen sind Pyramiden und Puerta de Toledo. Beide sind praktisch gleich weit entfernt: 300 Meter.

My first experience ever in a guest family and well, let me put it this way: I think my experience could not have been better. Michel's family welcomes you with open arms, as if you would already belong to their family. From the beginning I felt at ease, welcomed and "at home". Not do they only furnish the services that the stay includes, but they go far beyond that. They helped me for my metro card, gave me advises for sightseeing, helped me find my way to the university and a lot more.
I barely could speak Spanish, when I arrived, but Michel's family always did the effort to talk in a simple and slow way so that I could understand them and improve my Spanish. This is why I also strongly recommand you to choose the option to eat with them. It is always a very good and pleasant moment when you come together with the whole family for dinner. We were always having nice talks and the food was honestly excellent. If you want to eat locally and discover the diversity of the Spanish kitchen, I encourage you to take the "half board option". Empanadas, Tortilla, "Gambas a la gabardina", churros and other delicious dishes are waiting for you. "Muy bueno!"
An additional plus is the location. The district of Latina is well connected to the city center, but at the same time a very calm and very safe residence district. What I prefered the most is that the river is a 5 minute walk from their apartment. A very good place to have a little piknik, to go for a jogging or simply to enjoy the atmosphere during a little walk.
I regret having quit Michel's family after one month, but my university was a little bit far (in my Swiss definition of far) from the apartment and that's why I decided to move to a place closer to my university.
Anyway, if you are looking for a welcoming, kind and caring family, a clean apartment with good infrastructure and want to experience Spanisch culture and food, I absolutely recommand Michel and Isabel's apartment for your stay!
Una familia genial, una experiencia única en todo el centro de Madrid, familia acogedora.
Totalmente recomendados. Volveré con toda seguridad.
Gente muy amable y formal. La habitación muy cómoda y limpia, muy buena zona. Lo recomiendo al 100%.
I am convinced that there is no better place to stay in Madrid. Michel’s homestay was incredible and a large reason why I enjoyed my experience in Madrid as much as I did. You will be immediately welcomed into the family, yet they will give you space and independence to explore and learn about the city. You are given keys so that you may enter and leave the apartment at your convenience. The neighborhood is safe at all hours and easily accessible to public transport (about a 20 minute walk to Plaza Mayor or a 10 minute bus ride). My room was cleaned once a week and my clothes were washed for me. Dinners were provided at an extra cost, and I highly recommend this if you want to try Spanish foods and bond with the family. All meals were excellent and filling. The space was clean and perfect for a semester abroad.
I frequently went for walks and jogs at the Puente de Toledo Park, which is about a 5 minute walk from Michel’s Apartment. You will also find restaurants, pharmacies, etc nearby, making this location even more convenient.
Note that the WiFi was a little weaker than what I was accustomed to, but I found this to be a general problem with most WiFi’s in Madrid and not unique to the home. It did not detract from my experience, I simply had to purchase a Spanish SIM card with data to call home. I recommend everyone do this regardless, as having data for maps, phone calls, etc is extremely convenient.
I cannot express how much I value my time spent at Michel’s. I originally moved into an apartment, but decided to switch to a homestay to allow myself to practice my Spanish. The family speaks little English, so you will learn quickly how to communicate and interact in Spanish. After a semester here, I feel confident that I could hold a good conversation with anyone.
If you are at all considering a homestay, you will not be disappointed here. The experience is beyond worth the cost. You will love it if you choose to stay with Michel and his family.
Really kind family ! I felt secure and good integrated. They helped me with everything I asked.
Cozy room in a nice and very clean flat. The House is in a quiet and safe area, only a few steps away from Puerta de Toledo and the city center.
I would absolutely recommend this homestay.
I really enjoyed staying with Michel and his family. They made me feel right at home from the moment I arrived at the airport until I left. I recommend adding dinners to your stay because they are delicious and it is great to talk with them and learn more Spanish. A great location in the city with public transport close by. I would highly recommend staying with Michel and his family!
My stay with Michel and family was outstanding and exactly what I was looking for. This was my first homestay experience, and in the beginning I felt slightly nervous about staying in another persons home. However Michel and Isabel made me feel right at home. I also highly recommend purchasing dinner for your stay. It is very affordable and delicious. Can't recommend this homestay enough to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Madrid.
[for reference, I am a 21 year old male who studied Spanish since 7th grade in the US but stopped after going to college. I lived with Michel and his family for 5 months while studying Mechanical Engineering at UC3M]. Everything about my stay with Michel and Isabel was exceptional and extraordinary. Besides the fact that they are truly incredible hosts that will do your laundry, feed you delicious dinners (for a small fee) and teach you Spanish, they are always willing to go above and beyond to help you in any other way they can. Even better, this location is perfect for anyone looking for a quick, or long term stay in Madrid. La Latina is a more quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of the city center, but there is a bus that will take you to Plaza Mayor in 15 minutes and a Metro/Renfe Cercanias (short/medium distance trains) train stop less than 1 km away. This means that you can go to anywhere within the city in 20-40 minutes (if you are trying to reach the airport, the train ride takes about 35 minutes). From personal experience, I can tell you that it is INCREDIBLY safe at ALL hours of the early morning to the late night for walking. Even though their flat is located away from the city center and all of the hustle and bustle of Madrid, that also means that it is located away from the American tourists (: ). You can spend your days in the city, and your nights in a neighborhood rich with actual Spanish culture... and I'm sure that like me, you'll actually come to enjoy walking around the neighborhood :) Michel and Isabel do not speak English, but don't let that deter you from staying with them. As I said, I lived with them for 5 months and they both played a large role in making those 5 months the best of my life so far! I learned more Spanish sitting at the dinner table with them that I have in all of my formal Spanish education in a classroom, and I certainly got a better picture of what Spanish living is actually like. I've told Michel to give my contact information to anyone who books a stay with him that would like assistance or advice about how things work in the area for people that are unfamiliar. Don't miss out on an opportunity to stay with Michel and his family, you won't regret it!! Hopefully we'll speak soon!
I stayed for 4 months during a study abroad program. Michel and the family were great and very friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and were always responsive to any concerns I had. As an example, Michel went and picked up a package I had sent to me that was held up in customs on the other side of Madrid. Overall a very good experience
