About Marta Rodrigo
I LOVE TRAVEL WITH MY FAMILY ( I´VE 2 LITTLE GIRLS). THAT´S WHY I DECIDED TO RENT APARTMENTS FOR TOURISM. IT´S HARD TO FIND A GOOD ACCOMMODATION FOR A FAMILY. I TRY TO OFFER TO MY GUESTS THE SAME THING I´D LOOK FOR WHEN I TRAVEL. I STUDIED HISTORY OF ART, SO I KNOW WHAT MADRID CAN OFFER TO YOU ( MUSEUMS, MONUMENTS,...)
Marta Rodrigo purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Marta Rodrigo chose Centro
I WAS LOOKING FOR A FLAT LOCATED IN THIS ZONE WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY MADRID. IT´S A FAMOUS AND LIVELY AREA WHERE YOU CAN APPRECIATE HOW THE MADRILENES LIVE.
What makes this Apartment unique
YOU CAN FIND THE PUERTA DEL SOL, THE PLAZA MAYOR, THE SAN MIGUEL GOURMET MARKET, THE ROYAL PALACE, THE OPERA HOUSE AND THE MOST IMPORTANT MUSEUMS WALKING. THE BUILDING IS LOCATED IN THE ARTISTS STREET OF EL RASTRO ( SUNDAY STREET MARKET). IT´S FUNNY TO VISIT IT ON SUNDAY. THE APARTMENT IS SUNNY, WITH GREATS VIEWS AND SPECIALLY QUIET.

Thank you for your kind review. My place is perfect for people visiting Madrid and the surrounders, well placed in the center, walking distance to shops, markets and all the musts. it has been a plaesure to meet you and your family.
Our stay in Madrid
Marta is a great host. Nice apartment with all amenities in the center of the city. 20-25 minute walk to most attractions and interesting sites, and we did a lot of walking every single day. We enjoyed our trip to Madrid.
Well presented apartment for couple
Very well situated apartment, close to main attractions. Felt very safe in the area - apartment even has a concierge. 8 minutes to metro station. The owner was very friendly and helpful, even supplying us with welcome pack to help us settle in. Apartment was very clean and had everything required for a five day stay.
Peu approprié pour des gens qui recherchent un environnement paisible
L'appartement est central, mais le quartier convient plus ou moins à des gens d'un certain âge (59 et 66 ans) qui recherchent la tranquillité et une meilleure qualité de vie. La vue de l'appartement donne sur une cour intérieure, sans balcon et le quartier est plutôt défavorisé. De plus, l'insonorisation est déficiente, la climatisation peu efficace et certaines odeurs restent dans la salle de bain. Par contre, Marta est très accueillante et sympathique. Elle a accepté de nous rembourser deux nuits, puisque nous nous sommes plaints de nos voisins qui faisaient la fête jusqu'à 4 h du matin. Je crois que l'appartement conviendrait à un couple plus jeune. Nous avons terminé nos vacances dans un quartier résidentiel, Chambéry, plus loin des musées, mais qui nous a plu davantage.
Mon appartement se trouve dans le quartier du Rastro, le plus "gato" ( typique) de tous. Il est habité par les anciens du quartier ( des personnes retraités de classe moyenne), des jeunes familles et des jeunes indépendants favorisés économiquement, vu les prix des inmeubles. Spécialement un inmeuble comme le mien qui a un concierge les 24h .
Je l'ai choisi justement parce qu'il donne sur une cour intérieure, dernier étage, superensoleillé et tranquille. ( pendant quelques jours les voisins ont fêter la coupe du monde et ils étaient un peu plus bruyants que d'habitude.)
Les commerces, les restaurants et les antiquaires peuplent le qaurtier, le faisant spécilement intéressant et vivant.
Les espagnols nous ne sommes pas spécialement silencieux si nous nous comparons aux canadiens, ça c'est sûr. Le centre a l'avantage de la proximité mais est beaucoup plus vivant qu'un quarier résidenciel.
Je regrette qu'à votre âge vous puissez vous considérer " vieux". C'est le meilleur âge pour profiter de la liberté et des nouvelles expériences.
L'Espagne n'est pas le Canada. Nous aimons dîner tard ( 10pm), sortir, prendre un verre,... Nous ne sommes pas faits pour aller dormir à 9hpm. Nous aimons la vie et nous en profitons.
Quand on voyage , on cherche ce qui est différent, sinon on reste chez nous..
Mon appartement vous offre la possibilité de vivre comme un vrai madrilène.
Great apartment and location
We enjoyed our stay at Marta's apartment! The apartment was a great fit for our family of 3. It is very well equipped and in a very convenient location. We could walk to many attractions and it is right by the metro station. Marta was very hospitable before and during our stay to make our experience very pleasant.
My wife and I stayed in the "red" apartment for the first 3 weeks of April, 2017. Marta was a very good host. She communicated with us in a very timely manner both prior to and during our stay. When we arrived, she met us at the apartment, gave us a very informative introduction of the apartment and the local area and gave lots of helpful tips for restaurants, shopping, entertainment, etc. She also had some "starter" items for us like a bottle of wine, juice in the fridge, fruit, coffee a few snacks.
The apartment was clean and the space was sufficient for the two of us. All the appliances worked well and there was wifi with good connectivity available. The bed was fairly comfortable and it accommodated my 6'1" frame okay but with little room to spare.
In reading some of the reviews before reserving this apartment, I noticed that some folks had indicated there was an odor in the bathroom. When we arrived everything was fine and there was no odor or issue with the bathroom. However, after the first 24 hours, we did start to smell the odor others had referred to. Marta responded quickly when we communicated this to her and had a plumber as well as her husband work to alleviate the problem. For the most part they solved the problem however every now and again over our last two weeks the problem briefly reappeared. I want to emphasize that Marta worked very hard to alleviate the problem which apparently has its root cause stemming from tenants on a lower floor.
The neighborhood where the apartment is located is very lively and near lots of great places to eat, have coffee or just sit outside and enjoy the day/night. It's within walking distance to the Metro, bus stop and lots of sights including Plaza Mayor. "El Rastro" flea market literally takes place right outside the apartment's entrance (Despite the fact that there were hundreds of people outside the building, we never heard a thing from the apartment - so don't worry about it being noisy or disruptive).
As mentioned we stayed at this apartment for three weeks. We used it as a "home base" as we traveled to other cities in Spain, Portugal and Italy. We had a rental car and Marta arranged for us to get a very good rate for those 3 weeks in a parking garage that is just around the corner.
We would definitely recommend this place but would also recommend that Marta assure you the bathroom problem has been remedied. If we travel to Madrid again, we will reach out to Marta about using this apartment
Thank you Richard. I'm sorry for the disturbance but I can't control the works in the lower floor which caused the problem.
Yes, we definetly remedied the odor trouble in the bathroom. We changed all the valves of the shower, the toilet and the sink. Now, everything is perfect and you're never again going to have that problem. It's completely solved.
The place is very quiet for permit your rest in the night or the day. It's very close to all the musts as The Royal Palace, the Opera, The PLaza Mayor and you can enjoy hundredes of restaurants all around.
Madrid is an amazing city to discover.
Well located in the city centre of Madrid, in the heart of El Rastro, famous sunday street market. 5 minutes walking from Plaza Mayor, Royal Palace and Opera house. The Prado Museum, Reina Sofía Museum and Thyssen Museum are 20 minutes walking.
It´s a very lively zone with a lot of restaurants and tapasbars.
you can find all the services ( medecin doctors,...) offred in a big city.It´s perfect to visit Madrid without the subway or the bus. The nearest metro station is Latina.
