Spotahome visits and verifies the property. Just watch the video and book online
Because I want casual and close to the campus.
You’ll love this...
It’s affordable, well connected, and right next door to Madrid’s major University campuses.
But you won’t love this...
It’s not quite the charmer like Chueca or Malasaña. It’s an up-and-comer on the move. Though not everyone is happy about the direction.
Will I like living here?...
Friendly locals, Real Madrid fans, and real Madrileños. It’s multicultural, with a sizeable student population. If it’s authenticity you’re after, you’ll find it here. Bellas to Sol in 15 minutes.
It’s standing room only at the cervecería, and the Spanish love a good charla (chat) at the bar. How does the old proverb go?... “Three Spaniards, four opinions” ;)
Hungry? Try local favorite Sidrería Gaztemanu for the best of Basque cuisine.
And if you’re bored...
Francos Rodriguez Public Pool: Take a dip when the scorching Spanish summer hits. Google rating: 3.7/5 And this Google review nails it: “There is water as cool as if you were wrapped in snow on a winter's day.” – Woah, poetic.
Authentic, just outside the city, and very affordable. Some might even say it’s a bargain.
And did you know?…
There’s some real tapas in Bellas. But why does my caña (small glass of beer) come with a slice of tortilla?
One legend (of many) puts it down to some thrifty barkeepers. They discovered that if they covered cheap wine with a plate of pungent cheese, then their patrons, in a state of odoriferous confusion, wouldn’t notice how bad the vino was. Sneaky.
Move here to be near:
* Universidad Politécnica de Madrid * Universidad Complutense de Madrid * Santiago Bernabéu Stadium
Getting to and from the airport...
You can take a taxi from Madrid Barajas International Airport. It will cost you roughly €30 and takes about 20 minutes.
