From the moment I arrived, Julián and Gloria were very helpful. Due to the fact that I have problems with my hip and back, I decided to bring a queen-size air mattress with me. Unfortunately when I plugged it in the motor burnt out. Both Julián and Gloria went with me to the store and helped me buy the necessary items. They also took Extra Care in helping me get my room arranged and making me feel comfortable. They are very kind and caring hosts. One think to take notice of is that they do like their space and privacy. I tried very hard to stay out of the kitchen during their lunch time. I think that all of us were very respectful of each others' space. The bathroom is perfect. The rooms are perfect for someone who is going to be spending a lot of time outside of the house. What is provided is sufficient. There is also maid service and your linens are cleaned once a weem. You have ample access to towels, toilet paper, etc. As for the location, it is perfect. You are no more than a 3-minute walk to the main metro line. The neighborhood is quiet and it is nice to be away from all of the commotion of downtown. In conclusion, I decided to stay for 3 months and I have to tell you that I would recommend this Homestay without hesitation. Great job Julián and Gloria. Thanks so much for hosting me!
Gracias Julian y Gloria... por ser tan amables y ofrecerme la intimidad y el espacio que necesitaba...
My hosts were very nice and helpful, they gave me privacy but were also always available for anything I might need. I had a great time and I definitely would stay with them again.
The position is optimal to take the metro. Julián was giving me a lot of input what to visita in Madrid.
Julian and Gloria are sensational people. They are very receptive. The house is very cozy and clean. Julian knows a lot about the history of Spain and several other countries.
В квартире все удобства, в комнате чисто, уютно, много розеток и отличный WiFi. Дом в хорошем районе, рядом метро, много кафе. Джулиан и Глория отличные люди, говорят на нескольких языках, интеллигентны, дружелюбны, приятны в общении. Выезд в 12.00, но мы выехали позже (допоздна гуляли по городу), а из Мадрида мы уезжали поздно вечером, хозяева без проблем разрешили оставить вещи на весь день, за что еще раз благодарим! А еще разрешили искупаться в бассейне во внутреннем дворе дома и даже познакомили с соседями). В общем, очень приятные впечатления, рекомендуем! The apartment has all the amenities, the room is clean, comfortable, lots of sockets and excellent WiFi. The house is in a good area, near the subway, a lot of cafes. Julian and Gloria are great people, speak several languages, intelligent, friendly, pleasant to talk to. Check out at 12.00, but we left later (late walking around the city), and from Madrid we left late in the evening, the owners without problems allowed to leave things for the whole day, for which we thank you again! And still allowed to swim in the pool in the courtyard and even introduced to the neighbors). In General, a very pleasant experience, we recommend!
Gloria, Julian and Madrid are great. I will write more after getting back home.
Very pleasant stay with lovely people Julian and Gloria, good location,easy to get around, a few minutes walk to the metro station Pacifiko.I had a good stay at their place and I would recommend Julian and Gloria as hosts.
Great persons both Julián and Gloria. Had such nice time .
I had a good time at Julian's home. The room is very quiet and comfortable. It's great for a good night sleep after a long day out. I will definitely go back, the next time I go to Madrid.
