Prosperidad is a quiet residential area, but from this neighborhood you can get to anywhere in the city, or Spain for that matter, because the Avenida de America metro and bus station is 6 minutes away. Whatever your daily needs, you’ll find it within a 10-minute walk from your door. There is a supermarket, a butcher and a bakery nearby. You’ll also find a gym, and there are bars and restaurants all around. There is even a karaoke bar just down the street! The Kroom Dos School of Fashion Design is only a few minutes from your door and, in the evening, you can catch classical music concerts at the National Music Auditorium.
Suitable for: Professionals, Students, Erasmus
Your well-connected and residential home
It’s called “La Prospe” by locals.
It’s home to Avenida de América metro-and-bus station. You can travel all over Madrid and Spain from here.
Are good transport connections important to you?
Then Prosperidad is for you.
What can I do here?
Go to Calle López de Hoyos, one of Madrid’s longest roads. There’s a top-rated eco-store called Supermercado Ecológico El Vergel here.
Dress your best and go to the Auditorio Nacional de Música. It’s a classical music venue. Prices start at 10 euros. The acoustics are as finely tuned as the violins.
Go anywhere you want. After all, Avenida de América station is here. You can take a bus to anywhere in Spain. We recommend Barcelona or León.
Or you could visit one of Madrid’s historic villages instead. Alcalá de Henares is the birthplace of Cervantes. It's only 45 minutes by bus. Jolly nice it is too.
In the 19th century, Prosperidad was a small farming community on the edge of Madrid. Now it’s a major urban hotspot. Progressive.

The landlady lives in the property. She's a 30-year-old student who loves to travel, workout and cook. If you want to have visits once in a while, it's fine. No parties, though.
