About the Homestay
I'm a photographer . I have a beautiful house located in the center of Madrid in Malasaña, one of the most alternative neighborhoods in the capital. Full of life. One step away from everything and very well connected.
We have a large room with double bed and beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Plaza de San Ildefonso and another room with double high bed and single bed with balcony. If you are sensitive to noise do not look for a central place but if you want to live the city fully and avoid displacement, this is your home. We invite you to breakfast. If you need airport transfers we can fix it. Tickets for football, bullfighting, flamenco or other shows .... we can get them. During your stay you can count on my help with any question you have about Madrid. Even though I work from Monday to Friday I am available a large part of time to receive and serve the guests as they deserve! and indicate the best areas of Madrid to visit, eat, go out, how to get around Madrid and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Todo muy bien!apenas estuvimos en casa pero el poco tiempo que pasamos ni nos cruzamos con ella en casa!fué muy agradable en todo momento desde el primer dia,lo unico malo que la cama sonaba mucho!
Nous avons passé la semaine du nouvel an 2020 à Madrid et nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre hébergement.
Lieu très propre, au centre de Madrid et peu bruyant. Merci à Charo pour son accueil, et sa discrétion.
Petit bémol toutefois, nous aurions aimé être informé des caméras dans le couloir et la cuisine. Mais nous le comprenons.
I am rating 5 star but we did not stay there...the room had a single bed on the bottom and double on top....not ideal for a couple. Charo was nice enough to show us another hotel close by. Place looked clean and secured building.
charo’s home was inviting and a great location to stay for someone looking to get a more local experience. malasana is lively and friendly to tourists
Me quedé solo 3 dias en casa de Charo pero seguro que regresare,su acogida fue muy buena,el piso es muy limpio y agradable y la habitacion muy comoda.Esta muy bien situada,con metros y restaurantes al lado.Os lo aconsejo.
Achamos a localização excelente e a anfitriã extremamente preocupada e atenciosa. A calefação da casa muito boa, e a cozinha dá opção de um chá ou café se vc quiser de quebra galho. Certamente voltaria ou recomendaria o lugar.
Posto centralissimo. Charo presente ma discreta. Camera migliorabile
Comfortable, clean, easy to find. This area is buzzing with life and is in the heart of Madrid. Lots of bars, shopping, restaurants around, and a flamenco theatre around the corner. Beautiful old style building that makes you feel like you're really in Europe. Respectful and efficient host. Madrid has amazing metro system, and there is a station within minutes of the apartment, so all areas/attractions are easy to reach from there. Definitely recommend this homestay. Thank you!
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
The host was kind, allowed us to keep our luggage later than checkout, however the room was not as pictured. The beds reconfigure with the full size above. Very noisy from the street.
