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!
