Fully renovated cosy apartment in the heart of Madrid. Just off the main shopping street of Gran Via less than 10 min walk to Sol.
The apartment is located in Chueca. Read up about it on any website and youll discover that apart of being a stones throw from the center of Madrid called Sol, Chueca itself has great, restaurants, bars, shopping, nightlife and sightseeing all within 10 mins walking of the apartment. You really dont need a car to get around. The metro, bus and train system in Madrid works like clockwork and there are always plenty of taxis. If you want to wander out of Madrid there is also very good and cheap public transport available.

Cosy with quality furniture, fittings and essentials
Only the best is good enough for my renters! The apartment is not huge but at least you have a bedroom, a good size living room and well supplied kitchen, which is already more than youll get in a hotel. A small grocery store is two doors away on Calle Hortaleza 39 where you can buy all sorts of additional supplies. The apartment has cable TV and Broadband with WiFi internet access all FREE of charge.
Top floor apartment
Please note that this apartment is on the top (5th) floor and the building does not have a lift. Being on the top definitely has its advantages, it is very quite. Although the apartment is on a busy street the apartment is quiet because it is at the back of the building and hence does not get the street noise, you have the perfect combination of being in the center of the bustle but being able to switch off from it when you wish to get some peace and quiet. The apartment is "Exterior" which means that it gets natural light and sun shine. In Madrid there are many "Interior" apartments that do not have natural light since the windows look into the interior of the building.
I really liked this apartment. Was bettern than I had expected. Location was perfect, very clean, extremely confortable. I will definetely stay here again in the future.
The shower might be a bit small but after firs day you get use to it. I felt like home. Had a full kitchen to cook whenever I wanted to. Wireless worked great. Again I will stay here in future.
Thans again for making my stay in Madrid memorable.

Well organized with the payment and the keys. For an apartment in the center of town very quiet. Practical and well equipped. Its worth the price.
You must be able to climb the stairs to the 5.th floor.

I liked the apartment. It was quite comfotable and a perfect location. I appreciated that it was relatively quiet in the evenings. I would have preferred a softer bed. Climbing 6 flight of stairs was exhausting, but I knew that when I booked the place.

This is a cozy, well decorated apartment with excellent facilitiesa strong wifi connection (this is often a problem at many apartments and hotels Ive stayed at), extra supplies (shampoo, etc.), and everything I needed for a comfortable stay. The detailed instruction booklet was extremely helpful. It couldnt have been easier to figure out how everything works, where everything is, etc. And in the noisy neighborhood of Chueca, this apartment was absolutely quiet at night. Well worth the walk up the stairs to the 5th floor that so many have talked about. I recommend it without reservation.

The apartment is very well situated in a vibrant part of town. The apartment had good light and a nice feel. The guide compiled by the owners was very helpful. Although the stairs were a work out, we knew to expect that and were not troubled by it. We did notice a couple of bugs toward the end of our October stay however.
All things considered we enjoyed the apartment very much.

This was my second time staying at this property and my first review from January 2009 is still available to view...so read that for information on the steps, info packet, etc...
I would like to add that the apartment is starting to show signs of wear-and-tear. The whole apartment could use a fresh coat of paint, the sofa could use a good cleaning, and the fan just does not work proplerly anymore and should be replace with a couple larger ones...one for the bedroom and one for the main living area.
Would be nice to have an extra set of linens, both for the beedding and the bathroom....it was a pain to have to wash towels every-other day-but at least their is a washing machine availabe to do this.
Price was a little on the high end for the ammenities included and due to the fact that id does need a good cleaning and painting...but still a GREAT locationand a good value for the money.
I would definitely stay here again, as long as it was not in the summer since it does not have air conditioninig....hopefully that could change in the near future as neighbors in the same building were having units installed during my stay!

This apartment was perfect for us. Ideally located, the owners made sure that the renters would want for nothing. Yes, small, but turn around and its there...including a book of suggestions for great restaurants and walking tours, etc...read it and "reap". We did and if we ever return to Madrid, we just hope this beautiful property is there for us!!!
This small, but nicely appointed apartment is comfortable, well laid-out and a great value. It is in the heart of a lively area, convenient to transportation (metro, train, bus tours, taxis, etc), restaurants, shops, cafes and Gran Via. We took several day trips, but could have easily spent more time in and around Chueca and other parts of Madrid.
The owners are warm, friendly and available, if and when needed. Prior to and during our trip, all questions and concerns were addressed promptly and honestly. Everything was exactly as promised, including a few pantry items and perishables in the fridge. A nice touch.
It is on the 5th floor, but we got used to the climb after a day or two. A little exercise never hurt anyone. :-)
The landlord is wonderful--so nice and accomodating and the property is right in the heart of madrid, within walking distance to everything. would reccommend the place for anyone!
Please note that this apartment is on the 5th floor and there is no elevator or escalator available, walking up the flights of stairs is the only way up to the apartment. Latest check-in time is 11pm, if you are arriving later than this please check with me BEFORE booking. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED IN THIS APARTMENT.
