Modern, international and cosmopolitan, Madrid is one of the favourite cities for students and young workers where to have an academic experience abroad or an international career.
Located in the exact geographical centre of the country, it also is a hub which connects perfectly with the main Spanish cities with any kind of transportation. This makes easier for you to go exploring Spain in such a quick and simple way.
Madrid is plenty of interesting entertainment: cultural activities and amusement attractions fill up days and nights all year round, making the city a unique place to visit and to live in.
Ready to take off! Your experience is about to begin… but, wait! Have you really thought about anything?
Living abroad is an amazing thing that everyone should try at least once in life, but there are some decisions to keep in mind that could affect the entire experience.
Here we are to help and support you in order to make this process smoother.
First, you need to define a budget. This might be the most annoying part, because you will realise if you can start your life abroad, where you can live, the type of accommodation you can afford. When you deal with finances you have to take into account: price of the room or flat, cost of living (flat expenses, living expenses such as food, drinks, etc.), price of public transports and cost of flights.
Which is the right moment to get your accommodation? There are two strategies: the early bird hunting or the last minute booking.
If you are seeking vibrant and lively areas where to stay, then we suggest you to live in the city center. There are so many pros about that: shopping routes, uncountable dining spots, the nightlife and the closeness of all the comforts. The cons is that you might hear many noises. That’s why we suggest you quiet and relaxed neighbourhoods, a few steps out from the center, if you can’t deal with the crowded places!
But first, the couple things to keep in mind when choosing the area are the transportation, the closeness to your workplace or university and that you have easy access to supermarkets and anything else you need!
The housing solution that all the young internationals pick! It’s all about advantages: you can choose to live wherever you want and you’ll meet a lot of new people.
It’s probably the cheapest student accommodation in Madrid. You can split all the expenses and make lifelong friends to share unique memories with.
It’s a great solution in Madrid that allows you to have your own room and privacy, but you'll keep sharing amazing moments with your flatmates, your new family!
This can be a great option if you are looking for your own peaceful place. But it might be the less affordable housing solution.
Living in a student residence in Madrid means being in a kind of hotel. You have access to many services (such as the laundry and the restaurant), but it’s a little more expensive option.
The new trend for housing: people live in communities, sharing values, interests and way more than just a flat. They share huge common spaces in the entire building, creating a big family.
The room’s price may change depending on where it is located: some flats have both exterior and interior rooms. The first ones are brighter and may have a nice view on the street. Anyway, if you want to avoid any kind of noise, then an interior room is the best choice.
Who doesn’t love to live in a cosy and well equipped flat?
While hunting your new accommodation, you will encounter several types: from completely empty spaces to the totally furnished ones.
At helpHousing, our apartments are modern and well equipped and our rooms have the basic furniture you need.
Customers first. Don’t you agree? When it comes to choose where to live in Madrid, make sure you decide to rent a room or a flat that won’t cause you problems. The issues you can deal with can be about the bathroom pipes, the boiler, the door lock and many others. Being in a foreign country means that you could have language misunderstandings, or you might have problems to know how much is the cost of the service.
We care about our tenants, that's why maintenance is included in our services. Our clients have nothing to worry about.
Another important thing you should evaluate is whether or not having costs included. You have to know that in Madrid, most of the housing solutions don’t include costs. Whatever you are going to choose, do not forget that the bills and expenses management is easier with us: you have your own online account, where we inform you about everything.
