It is located in the same building as the other apartment CHUECA CHIC II, one beside the other.
CHUECA CHIC apartment occupies the 1st floor of a magnificent building, just a few meters from the Gran Via street . Has been recently renovated and consists of a wide room with double bed and private bathroom, living room where we have installed a double sofa bed, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen.
The size of the apartment is 70 square meters
The Chueca Apartment offers comfort and coolness in the heart of Madrid, in the chic neighbourhood of Chueca. This central area is perfect for exploring the Spanish capital and is close to Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran Via, the Retiro Park and more. The triad of the Prado, Reina Sofía and Thyssen Bornemisza Museums are also fairly close.
The exclusive Chueca neighbourhood is also where many gay bars are concentrated, and offers very chic boutiques, high level restaurants and charming outdoor cafes in its plazas. Fuencarral is a street which is absolutely packed with shops and has the Mercadillo where you can get a piercing or tattoo if the fancy strikes you.
The Gran Via street and the surrounding area contained the greatest amount of entertainment, shows and nightlife of the capital. Because of its proximity, in this apartment you can enjoy a complete tour, knowing the Chueca, Malasaña, Barrio de las Letras and the main museums (El Prado, Thyssen, Reina Sofía...)to approach the Plaza Mayor and neighborhood Austrias and La Latina. In a word: perfect.
We offer the possibility that, upon his arrival you have a kit of food in the apartment. If you wish, we can make a basic shopping (milk, bread, fruit, butter, coffee, ham, cheese ....). You can also order us a catering and to have dinner ready on arrival.
We offer babysitting so that parents can enjoy the night in Madrid.

La ubicación muy buena para lo que queríamos (céntrico y zona animada). El apartamento está mal atendido. Cuando llegamos la casa estaba fría y la calefacción apagada. No funcionaban la mitad de las bombillas de la casa y se echaban en falta algunas lamparas. La persona que nos recibió encendió la caldera y comprobó el agua caliente pero no los radiadores. Hubo que llamar para que vinieran a arreglar la caldera y reponer las bombillas por lo que para cuando se caldeó ya llevábamos más de 3 horas pasando frío. El resto de la estancia ha sido cómoda para pasar 2 días y fueron flexibles con la hora de salida adaptándose a nuestras necesidades.
We started our holiday from Madrid and ended it in Madrid, so we got to experience two totally different AirBnB apartments. There are things about CHIC AND CENTRALLY LOCATED - 1, that you should know, which differ from OLAVIDE APARTMENT DESIGN. There is nothing CHIC about the flat, but CENTRAL LOCATED is correct. This property is managed by a company, not the owner, so we never meet Elisa. She sends an associate (pleasant but in a hurry to leave), who meet us at the entry, and run through the use of the TV, AC and washing machine and left. There is no coffee or tea pot, no essentials like ice or ice trays, cooking supplies such as oil, salt, spices or anything found in ALL other AirBnB places we stayed, and the apartment does not face the street, as indicated in the photo, but rather the back courtyard which as mentioned in other reviews is rather dark. The flat needs attention. Dings and scuff marks in walls, broken kitchen window glass, broken toilet cover, and over all, not well maintained,
However, the flat is well located within a few blocks of 2 metro stops, and surrounded by nice cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The flat is large, the bed comfortable and the kitchen has stove, microwave and washer ( only one person can be in the kitchen at a time).
As for the 40 euro cleaning fee, I agree with the others, it is a scam. The bed linens were clean, the towels were clean and everything wiped down but the flat did not smell clean, look clean or even have clean windows.
OVER ALL, if you seek a central location, this is great, if you plan to cook or spend time in the flat, keep looking.

Elisa's apt was well located in the more bohemian area of Madrid which we really enjoyed and still handy to the major galleries and metro nearby. The apt has a nice big bedroom and does have all the facilities though it does really need some good sprucing up! Also the garbage bin is right by the entrance way, and the staircase to the apt was really dark. Aside from this, it was quiet and if the apt was upgraded I would stay again.
Very well located. I generally agree with the last reviewer.
We just rent the place for 2 nights.
Overall experience was all right.
I say "overall experience is ok" because there is space for improvement.
The place has lot of little defects: paints, bathroom top being broke though working...
I suspect that this place is managed by a company who only does the minimum.
I tried to call Elisa and ended up talking with somebody else managing the rental.
I was surprised by the 40$ cleaning fee.
You will find it in the "House rules":
"CLEANING SERVICES: 40€ will be paid in the check in for cleaning services".
40€ for a 2 nights stay is a bit expensive.
We only spent the night there and order once for food. We left the place clean as always.
I don't think that 40€ of cleaning is justified considering that the cleaning hourly rate in Spain is around 10€ and that I never paid more than 20€ on (website hidden)
Other rental announce it in their price at least.
I felt a bit cheated.
One more think I have been asking for a receipt (including the 40€ cleaning fee) for 2 weeks with no response.
We really enjoyed our time in Madrid! Our location here at Calle Valverde was nice an clean and in an excellent spot - we loved it! We had a little grocery store right across the street and made our own breakfast every morning. Everything that we wanted to see was close enough to walk to or to take the metro. We highly recommend the nearby little restaurant, Bar del Picco! We enjoyed our time here...
The apartment is exactly like the pictures, we loved where it is located and how clean it was for our arrival. Centrally located near all of the museums, parks and metro stations. The bed was very comfortable and shower worked well. My family and I would return to it again. Thank you!
The apartment is located in a great safe location. The bedroom was very quiet but my friend who slept in the living room said he could hear noise late on the weekend nights. We called Elsa when we arrived at the airport from a payphone and she met us promptly at the apartment with the keys and tour of the apartment. We did not experience any problems with the internet, it worked fine. The TV only has spainish channels, but there is a DVD player. All in all everything was good and I would stay there again.
The apartment is located in the heart of Madrid. Nice and clean apartment. A little is not enough light. Fast Internet connection. At 20 meters from the house there is a food shop. Nearby houses many cafes and bars.
Elisa Perfect host in Madrid. I definitely recommend her.
Appartement bien situé, la cuisine est tres froide mais sinon rien de particulier.
Les frais de menage de 40€ peut etre un peu élevé mais l'hote est sympathique.
