- Nice and renewd apartment in a typical Corrala of Madrid, perfect for a couple but there is a bed-sofa for two people available. You will enjoy the popular and multicultural Lavapiés district. The apartament is located in a typical madrilean Corrala. A Corrala is a characteristic type of building very common in the old Madrid, designed as a "long corridor" house usually made of wood with balconyes that face an indor space. The Corralas were inhabited by a popular and "castiza" (typical from old Madrid) population during the (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and XIX centuries. The Corralas can be found in many novels along the times... Nowadays, 400 different Corralas can be still found in Madrid, many of them very popular. In the last years the Corralas are being restored and lived by young people. The Corrala has a central common "patio" (courtyard), where you will find that the neighbours sit to talk or uses to hang up their laundry. You can also use it for the same purpose as one of them. We have a small private space with a table a two chairs to have a relaxing cup of coffee. There is also and interior open space where you can find the washing-machine. We will contact you some days before your arrival date so we can cordinate properly your check in. Both Federico and Estela, will be glad and available anytime to help you with any useful information you should need about Lavapiés quarter or any other place in Madrid. The apartment is located in the popular Lavapiés district at 5 minutes walking from the Reina Sofía museum. Some years ago when inmigration increased in Madrid the district turned to a very multicultural part of the city (with the positive and negative points). But this mix up of people from everywhere made what Lavapiés is now: a colourful, popularm, and bohemian district. Young people has returned to live here and this made Lavapiés an open space full of cousy and nice Cafés, restaurants or theaters. The nearest Metro station is Antón Martín. We are 5 minutes walking form the Atocha Station, the Reina Sofía Museum and 10min from the Prado Museum or Las Letras district.
