Guest AccessOur guests have access to their private rooms and shared bathroom upstais, gym and living room. And the garden and balcony, of course! Interaction with GuestsWhenever the guests return home, there will always be someone with them. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is extremely calm and peaceful. In spite of this, there's a big Corte Inglés store/ Hipercor supermarket less than 5 minutes away from home. A McDonalds and other American fast food restaurants lie next to Corte Inglés shopping mall.
Juan Carlos I Park and Parque del Capricho (this is an exquisite royal park), are only at a 10 minutes walking distance. If you like modern, abstract, open green spaces, kite flying and bike riding, then Juan Carlos is the right choice. If you prefer a more flowery and quaint place, with classical buildings and even a hedge maze, then El Capricho shall be it. Getting AroundTo go to downtown (Sol/ Gran Vía/ Opera etc) you have 2 options:
NB: All options are at a walking distance from our house!
1) Take Bus 115 to the last stop, Avenida de América. From there choose the metro line most suitable for your destination (either line 4, 6, 7 or 9 - it is the metro stop with the most connections!). When you come home from Avd de América, get off at Glorieta de Medusa bus stop and walk up the hill, then first street right to get here.
2) Alternatively, you may walk to Canillejas metro station, a 7-minute stroll from home. Then hop onto the green line (line 5) and it will take you through Ventas (bullring - plaza de toros), Chueca (the gayborhood), Gran Via (Madrid's most famous commercial street), Opera (Royal Opera House and Royal Palace) and La Latina (for Sunday morning's El Rastro street market).
To get from the Airport to our home:
3) To get here, a taxi is the quickest way. We can also pick you up if you prefer (for a fee), but tell us in advance! Taking a cab from the airport has a top fixed rate of up to 30€ max. Alternatively, take bus 200 from the Airport terminal where you are and get off at the Canillejas stop. It takes around 15-20mins, depending on the traffic. Then you just have to walk for 7 mins to get home along the highway.
