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.

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 Aguilera are 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.
