I stayed there for 4 days at the beginning of July 2017 and it was a nice experience. Located close to Lavapies/La Latina, it was very easy to reach every part of the city. Perfect for the Sunday visit of La Latina Market. The apartment...More
There was unpleasant surprise at the very beginning - we were moved into the smallest scrummy studio I've evere seen instead of the cosy two-level appartment with jacuzzi promised by the reservation. It was getting worse and worser: wi-fi was almost dead, hot water ran...More
I booked this apartment through booking.com, feeling happy with my decision as it was a good price and close to the centre. I then made the mistake of going on to tripadvisor and reading the comments.

Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
