I have tried Churros in other places that were really oily and the chocolate drink was too heavy. In Valor, in this location, the Churros were light and airy and not oily at all. The chocolate drink for dipping was perfect, not too sweet, not too thick. Just the way I like it.

My title tells you all. Which is a shame as its in a good location with smiling staff. For the chocolate and 4 churros expect to pay around 5€. Not worth it, sadly.

The churros were not specially good. The chocolate sandwich was a gimmick only. The Fondue was a joke. The burner was too small and did not work. seems to be more focused on selling the valor brand of chocolates only. service was rather average.

During my stay in Madrid I tried a few places specializing in "chocolate con churros" and in my opinion I would say that Valor has to be the best hot chocolate all around. The churros instead had a lot to be desired as it is a different version of the original churro, greasier ,fatter and not as crispy. Overall I... More

Great service! Easy to find on google maps. Chubby churros. The chocolate was a little sweet but I think they have other options I could have tried

In my opinion, when deciding which of the two most popular places I liked best for churros y chocolate, I would have to vote San Gines. We have found some local places that also do churros y chocolate very well but wanted to try the two most popular. I preferred the taste of the chocolate at San Gines. Also, the... More

Everywhere in Spain the hot chocolate is great. Never met one I didn't like but the Valor branded outlets are the top of the top..After the first one it is nearly impossible to pass by and not stop. Of course you have to like chocolate but you probably wouldn't be reading this if you didn't. The spoon stands up straight... More

Hearing so much about this place so we decided to make a trip one day. Of course, we ordered the chocolate and churros. Wow, it's really thick! I wasn't even sure if I supposed to drink or dip churros in the cup (an I did both lol). It was amazing! not too sweet, just right. I was so impressed that... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
