The apartment is located in Chueca. Read up about it on any website and you'll discover that apart from being a stones throw from the center of Madrid - Sol, Chueca itself has great, restaurants, bars, shopping, nightlife and sightseeing all within 10 mins walk of the apartment. You really don't 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.
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 you'll 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.
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 it's 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 patio of the building.
This pic was taken in Mota del Cuervo, a couple of hours drive from Madrid in the area where Cervantes set his Don Quijote stories, we went windmill spotting - and we saw lots and lots and lots of them! We love to travel and have been to and lived in many places, we know what is important when one travels so we hope at our apartment you will have that unique travel experience!
Ranpal purchased this apartment in 2006
I love the city, i live out in the country and sometimes just fancy a night out without the hassle of an hours drive afterwards... This neighbourhood is oozing with energy (don't come to Madrid for peace and quiet!) it's where my guests want to be when they come to Madrid because this area will give you the typical Madrid experience.
You'll be in the heart of Madrid able to make the most of seeing the beautiful architecture while out and about simply exploring...
The description of the property is extremely accurate. The apartment is a small one bedroom in very nice shape that is very comfortable for two adults. You could squeeze a couple of more in, but I think it would be tight. It has lovely roof top views of Madrid. It is in an excellent location, walking distance to many of the major attractions. A very good value. If climbing stairs are an issue, this is not the place for you. The description is very clear - many stairs. Really. If Internet is important to you, the WIFI is excellent. The kitchen is well stocked and they even provide you with some of the basics like coffee, olive oil, salt and pepper. The owners make themselves available if needed to answer any questions by phone or internet. I would stay there again!
Ranpal's apartment is perfect for anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay in a vibrant neighborhood. I stayed there for a week for work, and had no problems getting to the Metro station that was just 5 minutes away. The apartment is equipped with everything you would need during your stay, and also has a very informative handbook! Yes, it is on the 5th floor and there is no elevator, but if you are reasonably fit and you take it slow, then it is not an issue. Also, the benefit of being so high up is that it was very quiet at night! I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is considering a stay in Madrid!
We stayed at this apartment in early October 2016. We really liked the location of the apartment - a very vibrant community with many great restaurants and within walking distance of many attractions. Ranpal has developed a great book of information for anyone renting the apartment which was very helpful. He was also very accessible and gave very clear instructions how to find the apartment, retrieve the key, etc.. The apartment was clean and is exactly as is presented on the website. We did feel that it is looking a little tired or worn. In particular, the couch is well worn/used and the bed linen much the same. New bedding and even a cover for the couch that could be changed regularly would help to make the apartment a 4 star. We had a lovely visit to Madrid.
The apartment appeared as shown in the pictures. Ranpal provided good directions to the apartment and information regarding Key pick-up. The apartment was in a very nice location with good shops nearby for purchasing food and groceries and easy access to the metro. It is within walking distance to the major museums. Basic staples such as oil, salt, pepper were provided and appreciated. The apartment was very quiet. Since the outdoor temperatures were high, during the day the apartment was very warm.
This was a lovely place to stay and capture the city's feel. The owner warned us about no a/c but it really was not an issue and would have been a small price to pay for such an enjoyable apartment!
we loved our stay in this beautiful walk up in the heart of Madrid. Walk a few blocks in any direction and you experience many of Madrid's best sites. Communication with our host was easy, responsive and everything was as advertised. If there were six stars I would have rated that.
The apartment is really nice and clean and at a great location.
It has everything you might need during your stay - refrigerator, washing machine, cups, coffee, TV with many channels etc.
It is on the top floor, so you need to climb some stairs, but that was no problem for us.
Overall a great experience and would gladly repeat it when I get the chance
