It was the perfect location. It's a bit pricey, however, with the amenities & location it was worth it. Quiet neighborhood & the police station is a few steps away. We felt very safe. A lot of landmarks are walking distance & so as the metro. Starbucks is around the corner. If you want to experience being a local, this would be the place to stay.
Located about a 30 min cab drive from the airport. It was the ideal location as stated for anywhere from a 5 min walk to a about 20 min walk to many of the major sites like the royal palace, plaza Major,plaza sol, callao,Madrid Museum, Prado,and Naval museum to mention a few, were all very close by and were surrounded by a variety restaurants and a meeting points for bus and walking tours. I recommend a walking tour first just to get a lay of the area. I used the OGO walking tour and was very pleased, it's free, but you can tip at the end, mostly everyone does,Restaurants like the Tapa Spana on the corner of Gran via and plaza de espana,served great lunches or dinner, breakfast at sabatini across from the royal palace was also good.Al Aman just next door was great for stopping by for a cup of good hot tea, very friendly atmospher,Priper Restaurant was also a good breakfast joint. The rooms itself were clean,neatly arranged, I checked in with Natasha and once given the necessary familiarity instructions left you alone.if you had questions they were promptly addressed via the what's up app.which worked quite well for me.
I strongly recommend this property. Everything that it is advertised is true. I rented this property for my mother, she was there for three weeks and she had an amazing time. The place is clean and really comfy, has everything and it is in a great location. Everything is nearby, there are multiple stores, restaurants, and all type of services for an incredible stay. Jose the owner is amazing, he will help you and he is very open and flexible with specific needs. My mother had a blast in this unit. The place is safe and beautiful. If you are looking for a unit in the best location in Madid. You will feel like home.
This two-flight walkup in Centro is one of the best located in Madrid -- and we walked the whole city! Four minutes north is the Plaza de Espana and the Gran Via. Four minutes south is the Plaza Santo Domingo with numerous cafes, a supermarket, and access to our favorite pedestrian street, Calle Preciados. The apartment is also a 13-minute walk from the bustling Plaza Major and Plaza del Sol. It is four doors from a police station, so we felt very secure while there. The apartment itself is quiet, nice and very clean and features 14-foot ceilings with two balconies, wi-fi, and a cooktop, fridge, microwave and washing machine (all worked well). The owner's agent was fluent in English, friendly and very helpful at checkin. We found the mattress to be saggy and were also put off by the freshly-laundered wet duvet, sheets and towels from the prior tenants left on a drying rack on the balcony.
I spent a wonderful week in Jose ´s beautiful apartment, so tastefully decorated; high moulded ceilings and even a charming fireplace mantle. The apartment is located just behind the bustling shopping and entertainment packed GRAN VIA... but on a quiet little street where the noise of the big city does t reach. I would totally recommend the Chic Loft to both the leisure and business traveller.

Jose was such a lovely host! He was extremely communicative and provided excellent recommendations near by! The location of the loft was fantastic, easy walking distance to major tourist attractions, but near enough to other, less touristy, barrios. The loft is everything that the photos show. Well cared for, and not over the top. It is a perfect launching pad for somebody who wants to see the city, or is traveling for business. I would love to stay at this, or one of Jose's other rentals again!
