I was welcomed by Michele's housemate Scott, as Michele was on holiday in Italy, but the two of them did a fantastic job in helping me get to the place and organising my arrival. Their place stands heads and shoulders above the competition in madrid, and was the cheapest that i had found in Madrid. It has been completely renovated to 21st century standard, (which is something that you don't come across easily in Spain!) The huge kitchen and open living area was a great place to chill out when I was not outside exploring, and the bed was extremely comfortable so I had a great night's sleep every night. On one of my nights stay I had no plans, so Scott suggested we go out to a bar for some drinks and we had a great time. Overall I was made to feel very welcome whilst feeling like i had plenty of space to myself, and i will definitely stay again next time I'm in Madrid for a couple of days.
