Living in Madrid can be pricey, but the rooms for rent in this centrally-located 6-bedroom apartment on Paseo Santa Maria de la Cabeza, near Atocha station, are a bargain! An economical space, the front door opens to a small vestibule with a mirror and console table, where you can throw your mail or keys. All the rooms are located along a long hallway with parquet flooring. There is Wi-Fi and heating throughout the apartment, and two full bathrooms to share, which is convenient. The naturally-lit kitchen, equipped with a fridge, stovetop, washing machine and small appliances, is sizeable and has a counter table with stools where you can eat and socialize.
Aside from the great price, this apartment has an amazing and convenient location. Atocha is a neighborhood in the middle of Madrid, and while you can walk to the city center within a half hour, the nearby metro will get you there in 10 minutes. There is plenty to explore in the capital city, but this part of town is known for some great restaurants and lively nightclubs. If dancing your way to dawn isn’t on your agenda, you can check out the more serene El Retiro Park, or walk from your apartment up the tree-lined Paseo del Prado and lose yourself to the works of Goya, Picasso and many other masters in the Golden Triangle of Art.
Admin fee: €200 - This means that when you sign your contract, apart from the deposit, you will have to pay €200 fee to the landlord.
Your convenient and central home
Atocha is a 10-minute metro ride from the city centre. It's known for museums, restaurants and nightclubs. It's also fun, fast-paced and historical.
Because from Atocha, you can take a high-speed AVE train to towns across Spain (and beyond...). You can also take the airport shuttle and an early flight.
Atocha is Madrid's gateway to the world.
What can I do here?
Catch a train to Barcelona. (Joke.)
Go see Guernica at the Reina Sofia Museum. It's a 7-metre painting by Pablo Picasso. White, grey and black faces twist in torment, the peasant victims of state violence.
Try a bocadillo de calamares (calamari sandwich) at El Brillante restaurant. (You'll thank us.)
Take a walk in Retiro; it's a 350-acre park, one of Madrid's best. It's home to squirrels, migratory birds, and 15,000 shady trees.
Row a blue boat across the green waters of the park lake. Say hi to the ducks and terrapins.
When Saturday comes, move your body to the beat at Kapital – It's Madrid's most famous nightclub.
There's a tropical garden inside Atocha station. It has 7,000 plants from 260 different species. Diverse.
