Sentimental as it is, I'm going to miss this lovely apartment and Elise's warm and welcoming presence. My ten day trip in Madrid is tiring and exhausting after several full days of exploring but nothing beats going back to a place that felt close to home. A bit small, but it easily accommodates 2 people with working facilities and comfortable living and sleeping spaces.
The flat is close to the city center, within walking distance to all attractive touristic destinations and easily accessible by the metro lines. Though hilly for those not used to walking at an incline (like myself), the neighborhood is vibrant and packed at night with locals and foreigners both enjoying the lavapies scene and nightlife.
Elise herself is the perfect host and quick to respond to any inquiries that arose during our stay. She is well prepared with a list of suggestions on the perfect stops around Madrid and even some choice recommendations for tapas and bar hopping. She was even kind enough to call us a taxi to accompany us from the airport to the apartment on the very first day. I hope that if I ever visit Madrid again, I can count on Elise to make the trip something momentous and memorable for all parties involved.
