A room is available to rent in a 55 m², 2-bedroom apartment in the Trafalgar area of Madrid. The property is cosy and compact with everything you might need on arriving in a new apartment. It has a welcoming feel about it and would make a lovely home for students and young professionals alike.
Trafalgar is located in between the neighbourhoods of Chueca, Malasaña and Salamanca, whose influences combine to create a barrio that is eclectic in both its atmosphere and activity. From the sophisticated and chic Alonso Martínez to the relaxed squares of Plaza de Chamberí and Plaza de Olavide, ideal places to chill with friends, this is one of the most characterful neighbourhoods to live in.
Your central and LGBT-friendly home
What does cosmopolitan look, smell and sound like?
Like Chueca, actually.
Which is reassuring, because in Chueca, everyone is welcome. That's why it's home to Madrid's LGBT community.
Restaurants, bars, cafes and shops squeeze tight together. Each is trendy. Each designed to be different.
You can expect artisanal menus, antique furniture and persuasive, personal designs.
It's virile, it's intriguing, it's Chueca.
What can I do here?
Join the fun during Madrid Pride Week, at the end of June. The weather is hot. The crowds are fierce. The beats are loud. Mayhem.
Browse the shops and boutiques on fashionable Calle Fuencarral.
The San Antón Market rooftop is your go-to bar for tapas and drinks. La Tita Rivera is a chilled restaurant-bar with an interior patio. Gin Club Mercado de la Reina is the type of lounge 007 would lounge in.
The power of pop compels you ... to dance your feet sore at Delirio. It's a nightclub. It's popular. The queues to get in can be long. But you knew that.
In the morning, drag your tired feet to the Plaza de Chueca. Sit in the sun with friends at one of the many terraces. Monday can wait.
Chueca is proud to be Madrid's LGBT capital. Life is colour, colour is life.
