Chamberi Studio Rental Photos and Description
Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Located in the most madrilenian neighbourhood –Chamberí- this studio is really close to everything: 5 min by tube to Puerta del Sol and all the most important art galleries (Museo del Prado, Museo Reina Sofía, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, …) and 5 min walk from two of the liveliest parts of the city: Malasaña and Chueca. These two neighbourhoods are the most fashionable areas of the moment, where you can find vintage shops and trendy bars, as well as the typical Spanish tapas bars. Even though the apartment is within walking distance of a very lively area, it is situated in a very quiet street off Fuencarral, and it’s also overlooking an interior patio, which provides an even more peaceful environment. There’s even a very typical garden/square just round the corner (Plaza de Olavide), famous for it’s tapas bars, and also an original version cinema 300 yards away.
You can also take the tube to the “Golden Mile”, where all the most fashionable and luxurious shops are concentrated, and be there within 10 min.
The closest tube station is Quevedo (L2, red line), and also Bilbao (L1, blue line, and L4, brown line) and Iglesia (L1 blue line) stations, both 5 minutes away.
There is a big convenient store very close. The building is provided with a wheelchair ramp, and also has 2 lifts (width of wheelchairs should be consulted), a porter during weekdays and a big communal interior patio, which makes it a very quiet apartment.
Madrid is also a very good location to use as a 'base' for day-trips to historical cities, like Salamanca, Segovia, Aranjuez, ... This kind of information will be provided on arrival upon request.
The studio is a 28m2 apartment comprising of a living room/bedroom area with a very comfortable double sofa bed, full lenght mirror and a dinning table, and a kitchenette complete with all the kitchenware, sink, electric cooker, breakfast bar, fridge, microwave, Italian coffee maker, kettle and toaster.

My dad has been renting this flat for years, but decided to make a refurbishment of the flat a few years ago, and that’s when I got involved. We've been renting it for a long stay, but we've decided to try short stays as I was living in the same building and I could help him with the managing of the reservations.
My dad is a great Madrid’s lover and knows a lot about the city, and he is available to answer any questions you may have -he speaks perfect English, as he studied at the British Institute when he was young. As for me, I used to live in England and now work at the airport, so you won’t have any language problems with us. I'm now living in another town, as I've just been transferred by my company, so my dad will be the one attending you (he also lives close by) and I'm only in charge of the reservations.
Sara purchased this studio in 2006
Why Sara chose Chamberi
I grew up in this area, so this is the perfect place for me to be. What I like most is that is close to everything (there's even an Original Version cinema three blocks away!) and I can go anywhere just by walking or by tube. Eventhough it's in a very busy area, it's in a street off the main one (Fuencarral), and the flat overlooks an inner patio, so it's really quiet.
What makes this studio unique
I specially like the little square just round the corner (Olavide), with nice terrace-bars to enjoy tapas.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This apartment was exactly what we wanted in Madrid. Clean, good location, and right on the metro line. Sara and her father were great hosts - very responsive, helpful with recommendations, and even left us a welcome basket of fruit for our arrival. The apartment has a washer and laundry soap available which we really appreciated as we stayed here for 7 nights. This is a studio apartment, so it is a smaller space, but was all that we needed for 2 people. Overall a great stay and we would recommend!
