My place is close to the 1 metro line - Tetuan Metro stop. The 1 is the oldest line in Madrid. It stops within walking distance to many tourist destinations with a quick connection to the airport.
Tetuan is one of the most ethnically diverse areas of Madrid. There are a number of bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and plazas near the apartment.
The apartment itself is light with everything new and in working (URL HIDDEN) is a cozy spot perfect for solo travelers, couples or 2-3 friends.
The apartment building was built in 1924 and my particular apartment was owned by the same family since then. I purchased the apartment in 2014 and completely renovated the interior to expose the beams, create more open space and restore the patio to its original size.
It is a one bedroom, one bath, open kitchen living room space apartment.
There is a gazebo/pergola on the patio, providing shade in the summer. There is a very small grill hidden on the second shelf of the tile table with plants.
In addition to the bathroom in the apartment, there is a old tiny water-closet in the hallway that is supposed to be shared by my neighbor and I. I would recommend using only in emergencies but it is there if needed.
Guests have access to the entire apartment--except for the shed, the attic storage and items stored under the couch. There are 3 international adapters for guests to use in the apartment. Please do not remove from the apartment.
The cooking products in the kitchen area are for anyone to use. As is the shower gel/shampo.
There is a washer that guests can use but guests are requested to purchase their own laundry detergent.
I request that if guests smoke, they ONLY smoke OUTSIDE on the patio.
Two ash trays are outside on the patio and thus guests are encouraged to use only the ashtrays to put out and throw away butts (not vases or plants).
There are gyms along Bravo Marillo and a Kundalini Yoga Center just at the corner of Calle Tablada and Bravo Marillo.
I am based in Kenya but am always available via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and I have a co-host that is permanently in Madrid and available.
I have a deposit on the house because almost everything in the house is new. The renovations were completed in July and the washer and fridge only arrived in January and have barely been used.
- Smoking on Patio but NOT inside the apartment
- A small number of visitors are permitted but the space is tight and out of respect for the neighbors should be restricted to 6 people max
- Most of the guests interactions will be with the property manager but I will always be available via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) as well. I am primarily based in Kenya
