“El loft de Ana Carmen es el mejor sitio para estar como familia. Fuimos con dos niños pequeños (3 y 1 año) y nos encantó la accesibilidad, parques y metro cerca. La casa muy bonita y cómoda y los anfitriones estupendos. The best place to be in Madrid as a family with 2 kids. The house is fully equiped and we had a great time”
Ana Carmen's reviewsAs a host (17)
“An absolutely stunning property in Madrid, which we recommend in the strongest possible terms. Very stylish, modern, comfortable and convenient for Madrid's attractions, Thank you Ana Carmen for being an excellent communicator and host. ”
“A wonderful exchange. Everything you could hope for. Ana Carmen & Pepe are warm friendly people who made us incredibly welcome. The property is very tastefully decorated and well appointed. Really felt like home from home Public transport is very close by as are restaurants, shops, a market and a gym - all of which we used Very happy with the exchange and hope to return”
“This was my second stay at Ana Carmen's place. First one was for work and this one it was with my family. Location is perfect and the house is lovely, yet not as much as its owners. Best place in Madrid :)”
“We have had a direct Swap with Ana Carmen. It was great!! It felt so good. We first met with FaceTime and could ‘t stop talking! And we met Ana and her husband when we arrived at their house. It is a great spacious place and so close to the centre. Quiet area and a play garden near for the kids. Also shops are close by. We definitely will swap again if we are going back to Madrid. They were very sweet and helpful. I highly recommend there home but also for a direct swap. Muchas gracias Ana y Pepe! ”
“Lovely ground floor apartment in a relatively central area of Madrid. The apartment is very comfortable, everything new and in working order. The underground is very close by as well as shops etc. Ana was very accurate and fast in her communication. An excellent experience!”
“In a word, 'Brilliant!' Ana and Pepe could not have made us feel more welcome and comfortable in their gorgeous home. Their hospitality and kind-heartedness was truly amazing and greatly appreciated. After collecting us from the train station and giving us a quick drive-by tour of the main city attractions on the way home, we were welcomed so warmly into their beautiful apartment as they showed us around its elegant, spacious and stylish interior. The apartment is located in a very convenient, quiet, leafy neighbourhood, less than 5 minutes’ walk to the metro station and bus stop which makes it easy to get around and see the sights of Madrid. It is also within a close walk of the Plaza de Toros (de Las Ventas) and its associated bullfighting museum. Their upmarket home is surrounded by restaurants, cafes and numerous local shops and there is a handy supermarket just two minutes away. Ana and Pepe also provided us with many suggestions on how best to get around, what to see and do in Madrid, where to visit, shop and eat...all very helpful to newcomers. It was the perfect base from which we could experience a taste of Madrid and a comfortable, cool and very relaxing haven to come home to after a long day sight-seeing. A real home away from home! We could not recommend Ana and Pepe and their stunning home more highly. They are truly a wonderful and warm-hearted couple. ”
“If you get a chance to live in this home you WILL LOVE IT! Pepe and Ana used their skills as architect and designer to build an absolutely gorgeous home. Every detail is perfect, down to the windows that open out to make the garden part of the home, the Georgia O'Keefe in the kitchen window, this home is a dream. I can't say the same for Madrid in July - way too hot to stay out but thank heavens we had a lovely home to come back to and decompress. Ana thank you for your hospitality, for the use of your home and we hope to see you in Kinsale, Co Cork Ireland some day. Alana and Margie”
“A really enjoyable stay a beautiful, modern and stylish apartment. Ana was easy to communicate with, very helpful and friendly. It was an especially interesting and fun time to be in Madrid as our visit coincided with the Fiesta de San Isidro and a weekend of free activities. ”
“The place is lovely and very central. The design is so beautiful and open! Ana and José were extremely kind to me, gave me all the details I needed and made my stay really comfortable. Totally recommend it. May even go back myself some day :)”
“Ana and Pepe are a lovely couple and made us feel at home. they helped us with maps, train and bus info, things to see. Showed us some great Tapas bars and were so friendly. We feel they are now friends. There flat is close to buses and subway so getting around was easy. Highly recommend a house swap with them. Jerry & Liz”
“We had a fantastic couple of days at Ana's place it was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. The flat was also very close to 2 metro stations to access Central Madrid. This was my first swap so was a very high Stand for us to love up to. Ana was also very helpful with recommendations and a welcome glass of wine. Fantastic couple of days would definitely recommend to anyone.”
“We loved our short stay at Ana's flat in Madrid. They have made it comfortable and tasteful. They were so nice to wait for us to arrive when we were late. Both of them showed us around and gave us restaurant recommendations as well as being helpful over the weekend when we were there. It's a 5-minute walk to the train and a 5-minute walk to restaurants. We walked to the grocery store and didn't need a car at all. Loved every minute of it and for anyone going to Madrid, we recommend staying at Ana's. Wonderful people and lovely home!”
“Ana and Pepe were so kind as to accomodate us at very short notice when another booking unavoidably was cancelled. They greeted us warmly and with loads of information about their house and city, and Ana was so kind as to return from her country retreat and drive us to the airport at the conclusion of our three day stay. The house itself is simply stunning, the pics do not do it justice. Its simply beautifully designed and elegantly styled. Its extremely comfortable, a sheer delight to stay in. Its a short walk and 15-20 minute underground train to the centre. We found supermarkets, pharmacy and lovely local restaurants with ease. Madrid itself is a bustling and elegant city, we needed longer to explore and would return to Madrid, and in particular to Ana's house in a heartbeat. Highly recommended.”
“We loved our brief stay at Ana's place! Beautifully decorated apartment in a very convenient location. Ana and Pepe were were extremely nice and helpful and easy to communicate with. They made us fell very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Madrid and would highly recommend staying at Ana's place.”
“Probably the best people on the planet to exchange with. The apartment is new, clean and gorgeous; the photos don't do justice. It's very close to metro and bus station, to access to city center. What truly makes home exchange special are the people. Ana and her husband are amazing. Warm, generous, and kind. Just before our trip, Ana reached out proactively, and offer to pick us up in the airport. They walked through with the apartment in detail, provided tons of amazing tips and recommendations in the neighborhood and for Madrid tours. Offer us coffee, juices when arrive, and leave plenty of snacks/food in the fridge free for our consumption. Possibly the kindest human beings on the planet.”
“We were fortunate enough to meet the owners of this property on our arrival, they showed us round and explained the basics of the apartment before leaving us to enjoy a wonderful long weekend in Madrid. From the moment we arrived and Ana showed us where the secure parking was to us locking up on our departure we felt comfortable in the amazing apartment. The pictures don't do it justice, it is clean and spacious, the showers powerful and hot and the beds comfortable. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and the metro station is only 5 minutes walk away. It is easy to use to get around the City and goes directly to the Airport. Highly recommended as a base to enjoy this vibrant, historical area.”
