“Great Location in Chueca”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

Visited here with my boyfriend and his parents in Sept. We took a taxi from the airport, had no trouble finding the location. There is a restaurant right downstairs (El Gallo, I think) and one across the street with a huge mural outside (La Esquina, I think), in case you need some landmarks. When we arrived, we were worried about the location because El Gallo (or something close to that) was very loud and busy. Miguel showed up a few minutes later with the keys and to show us around the apartment.

Once we got upstairs, the insulation on the windows is so good that we couldn't hear the noise downstairs at all. Miguel showed us around, and was very patient when we were having some issues putting the security deposit through on PayPal we had a bit of trouble logging onto the wifi at first because the password is very very long and easy to make mistakes, and then it was being slow that night. Didn't have trouble with wifi speeds after that, though.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a master bathroom with ensuite (bf's parents took that one, so I can't comment much on it). We took the room down the hall with a double bed. The other room has two twin beds and looked like it would be suitable for older kids, but maybe a little cramped for two adults (the beds looked on the smaller side). All three rooms had a/c, which came in handy; it was pretty hot when we were there. The a/c cools the room right down in about an hour or so, so no need to leave it on all day long. Our room was closest to the main street and we never heard any noise at night. The second bathroom is located just outside of the double room. It was a little small and not the greatest ventilation, but the shower worked great. I agree that some of the linens could really use an update, but I'd go a little further to say that the walls could use another coat of paint, and maybe some artwork or something. The living room was comfortable, but the fabric on the red couch is becoming a bit worn (it didn't bother me, but it might bother someone, so I mention it).

There's a washer in the kitchen, which we used once or twice, but I don't think the laundry soap was dissolving properly. I was putting it in the dispenser though, and maybe it was supposed to go in the drum directly (there were no instructions on the soap, they were just in a plastic thing that said "laundry soap" in Spanish, nothing else). We also used the microwave and the fridge for a couple things, no complaints there. There is a fairly modern lift, but the apartment is only up a couple sets of stairs, so it's pretty easy to walk up to if you want the exercise. Just be careful with weight if you're taking heavy bags up the lift. It's modern, but it's not very big.

The location is awesome, we were able to walk just about anywhere we wanted this time. Last time, we stayed closer to the plaza in the center of the city (which, honestly, isn't very far from Chueca) and I think we took the metro way more often on that visit than this one. That could have also been that we had a better understanding of the city this time, though, I don't know, or it could have been that our hotel last time was closer to the metro. There are tons of good restaurants in the area, and plenty of nice boutique shops around. I didn't get as much time shopping down there as I would have liked, since we were there over a weekend and many of the shops weren't even open on the weekend. It's still a nice area to window shop, regardless. We stopped at the little restaurant across the street one morning for breakfast (La Esquina) and they have really good food. They cook up some really nice breakfast sandwiches and have great coffee. The owner is a little gruff, but he actually seems like a really nice guy once you start talking to him a bit. We never tried dinner here, but I think they have Moroccan tagine, along with some more traditional Spanish food.

We had a great stay here and loved the location. If we are visiting Madrid again with another couple, I would probably stay here again. It was very easy to see the city from here, and you're never more than a few minutes away from a delicious meal.

“Awesome and very clean apartment”
Reviewed 12 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

This is a very nice apartment located in the Cheuca area of Madrid. The apartment was very nicely laid out with all the amenities available. I stayed with 3 other girls and the space was enough so that we could all comfortably sleep. Having two bathrooms is key for 3 or more people. The wi fi worked well as it is hard to find good wi-fi in Spain. The only thing lacking was a nice terrace, but there were window balconies in which you could stand on and look outside. I would totally recommend this place to other travelers.

Management Response

Lamentamos que el huésped no haya estado a gusto en el apartamento.Nosotros tampoco estuvimos a gusto con ellos desde el principio cuando desde el primer momento hubo problemas con el pago de la fianza y con sus comentarios homófobos a propósito del barrio donde se encuentra el apartamento. El apartamento dispone de papel higiénico de cortesía, pero al tratarse de 7 personas lo mas probable es que se agote. Debemos recordar que los objetos consumibles del apartamento deben ser comprados por el inquilino. La cafetera funciona perfectamente pero es posible que el inquilino no conociera su funcionamiento. En cuanto a la limpieza el apartamento dispone de sábanas y toallas recién entregadas de la lavandería y recién planchadas. En ese momento la funda del colchón del sofá cama estaba en la lavandería. El inquilino exigió la funda del colchón en la noche anterior a su salida por lo que no daba tiempo a entregárselo. Ante la imposibilidad de la entrega se le ofreció la anulación de la reserva y la devolución del dinero, ofrecimiento que el inquilino rechazó. Espero que quienes lean esta respuesta entiendan que algunas veces los propietarios deben lidiar con inquilinos desagradables que disfrutan haciendo daño escribiendo críticas negativas injustas y sin sentido.
