The landlord speaks English and does not live inside the apartment. As the landlord requires a two-month deposit, besides paying one month’s deposit to Spotahome, which will be transferred to the landlord, you will pay an additional month’s deposit upon signing the contract and then the current month’s rent upon check-in into the apartment. You MUST pay your rent via bank transfer.
A great neighborhood if you want to find relatively affordable accommodation in the center of Madrid and very well communicated thanks to the Atocha train station, where you can get AVE (high-speed trains to cities all around Spain). At Atocha, you can get Cercanías (suburban trains) to Universities in the South and North of Madrid such as: Carlos III, Universidad Pontificia de Comillas (the campus in Alcobendas), and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Close to the Retiro and Tierno Galvan parks, as well as the most renowned museums of Madrid. On the second weekend of each month, you will find the Mercado de Motores in the Museo del Ferrocarril in Delicias, with a wide range of vintage, handmade, and artisan goods. Live music and food are always on hand making the Mercado de Motores the most happening place in town. In spite of its proximity to tourist attractions, Atocha and Delicias are still very authentic neighborhoods, where you can get a real feel of Madrid.
