We stayed here for a couple of nights in August. First and foremost it's in a superb central location and is fantastic value for money. The B&B is wonderfully decorated and the hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good and the homemade bread and cakes were delicious. It's clean, it's restful and it's surprisingly quiet given its central... More

Stayed at Artistic for 3 nights in May. Everything was perfect! the location (close to shops, restaurants, museums), the price and especially the atmosphere and the hosts who prepared the breakfast provided loads of useful tips!

Just spent 3 nights at the Artistic. Paola and Rudolph were great hosts and have a charming place. It's located a short walk to the Prado or to the Sol or Opera Metro stops. The room we had was equipped with AC which worked wonderfully well. A very nice place to stay!

We stayed at the Artistic B&B for 3 nights and loved the quiet yet central location, funky decor, and friendly hosts. Paola and Rodolfo gave us terrific advice to make our stay in Madrid more enjoyable, and we met other interesting people at the breakfast table each morning. We walked from the train station to the B&B in about 20... More

We have been in Madrid, staying in this B&B. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and nicely arranged by Paola, the owner. The B&B is located in the Barrio de las Letras, one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods in Madrid, at no more than 15 minutes walk from Puerta del Sol and less than 10 minutes from the Prado, the Reina...

We stayed as a couple two weeks ago for 5 nights. Paola and Rodolfo were excellent hosts and we really enjoyed our stay at the BnB. The house is done up beautifully by Paola and has interesting pieces of art everywhere. Rodolfo contributes with his fresh baked artisan breads and cakes every morning and with his ever present smile! We... More

From this location we were able to walk to all the sites. The hosts were extremely helpful in offering sites to see, free times at museums and background on local culture. The rooms were quiet, peaceful and up-to-date bathrooms. Breakfast was generous and very tasty, with homemade breads. Be aware the B&B is 3 flights up, no elevator, but well... More
