The rooms for rent in this centrally located 4-bedroom apartment in Argüelles are close to the University City of Madrid, as well as to the Comillas Pontifical University. Entering the space, you’ll find a small vestibule that connects to a long corridor and to the full bathroom, with a tub and shower. There is also a small water closet with toilet and sink. The first door along the corridor leads to the compact kitchen. It’s a snug space, but has everything you need, including a large fridge, stovetop, microwave, toaster oven, and even a washing machine. The shared living room is toward the end of the corridor. It’s an ample size, with a 4-chair dining table, a comfy sofa and chair where you can watch the flat-screen TV, a coffee table and a shelving unit.
Argüelles is a quiet neighborhood, but ideal for students. This apartment is located within a 10-minute walk from the Comillas Pontifical University and only two metro stops away from the University City, which houses the Complutense University and the Technical University of Madrid. You can sleep in and still make it to class! Some say that all work and no play makes for a dull time, so you’ll be glad to know that Argüelles offers plenty of excitement. Whether you enjoy a morning jog or a weekend picnic with friends, you're spoiled for choice, because Oeste Park, home of the fascinating Temple of Debod, is just a short walk away from your doorstep. Cinephiles will love the nearby Plaza de los Cubos, which offers original-language films (a rare thing in Spain!), and tapas bars and restaurants are plentiful.
Your quiet, and central(ish) hangout
Do you want to live close to the centre of Madrid?
Do you want to live somewhere quiet?
You could do worse than Argüelles. Good universities and ancient monuments surround you. The local restaurants serve tasty tapas. Think fresh whitebait, Spanish omelettes and fried squid.
A short walk sees you in the city centre.
Sound like your thing?
What can I do here?
Train your brain: study at the Universidad de Comillas. It's the only Spanish university in the Times Higher Education 2013 ranking.
Walk to the city centre; admire the proud Spanish architecture.
Browse the perfume aisle at the huge El Corte Inglés department store. It's near metro Argüelles; the boutiques on Calle Alberto Aguileraare also worth a visit.
At night go to Los Bajos de Moncloa, behind McDonald's. It's a small party zone popular with students, clubbers and rockers.
On Sundays grab a blanket. Head to gorgeous green Parque del Oeste. People of all ages gather here. Some to run, some to read, some to play guitar and sing.
Wander the park; you'll find an old Egyptian temple called Temple of Debod. It was built 2,200 years ago in honour of the god Amun-Ra. Once it lay on the banks of the Nile, now it rests in Madrid.
In Spain, films are translated into Spanish. But Argüelles has an original-version cinema in Plaza de los Cubos. Easy.
