Rocío was a superb host and I really enjoyed my stay. She welcomed me into her home and I really felt at home there. She had great advice about things in the area and we enjoyed some great conversation. She was VERY patient and supportive with my struggling Spanish, which I really appreciated. Location is very close to the Lavapiés station and also close to Antón Martín. A few grocery stores very close and bars and restaurants everywhere.
It was unfortunately a short stay of only two weeks but the next time I have a chance to be in Madrid for an extended period of time, I hope her place is available. I would gladly stay with Rocío again!
Rocio is a super friendly and welcoming person. I loved staying at her flat and having talks with her. Also, she can share good recommendations for your stay in Madrid.
The apartment is clean and cozy. The neighborhood is nice and central, with lots of restaurants and bars as well as a close supermarket.
Highly recommend to book your stay at Rocios place :)
Not recommended, especially for long stays. Even considering that every stay is a subjective experience, there are things that are not. The obsession to save money in every way doesn't justify and explain the request of 700€ for a room per month (already discounted) and, according to Rocio, EVEN NOT SO MUCH money to pay to stay there, which, according to honest landlords of Madrid, is definitely not true, but crazy.
Rocio asked a rent of 700€ per month but every appliance needed to be off and as little used as possibile:
- Turned me off the lights of the dining room and rolled up the shutters (just to save 10 minutes of light energy);
- Very strict about washing machine and dishwasher (basically allowed only in the cheapest time slots = the weekends);
- Told me I'm disrespectful because I turned up the heating from 19°C to 21°C without asking, AFTER I said more than one time that it was cold if she kept the heating on only few hours and to a minimum. I also asked for a blanket and she simply said she had none more.
Un grand merci à Rocio pour son accueil et son hospitalité. Son appartement est très propre et très bien situé pour visiter le centre de Madrid à pied. Une adresse à recommander pour vos prochains voyages.
Nice situation, The flat is quiet and clean. Rocio is cool :)
Rocio is wonderful, warm, thoughtful and responsive. I had a terrific two weeks with her. Thank you so much for sharing your apartment with me!
An excellent hostess, the location in the center, you can not ask for more, I would like repeat.
