    Everything about Student Accommodation Madrid

    Set on the River Manzanares, Madrid is the capital and the most populated city of Spain. From historical gems and world-class art to picturesque parks, and incredible food scene, Madrid has got everything for you. The city holds a special place as the political, economic and cultural centre of Spain. If you’re looking for an authentic taste of Spain, then Madrid is the place you should visit. It still manages to preserve its traditional roots by giving visitors a sample of real Spanish culture. The city offers many attractions and historic sites like the Royal Palace of Madrid, the National Library Building, the Royal Theatre, and the Cibeles Palace.

    Due to the presence of many world-class higher education institutions, the city attracts a large volume of overseas students every year, thus making it difficult to find quality student accommodation in Madrid. Also, universities in Madrid have limited capacity in their student hall, thereby creating a large demand for private student housing with campus-like facilities. These off-campus accommodations are located within commutable distance of the city’s top universities to help students cut down on both time and money on their daily travel.

    Things to do in Madrid
    Madrid is a city so full of life and has many places to visit and several things to do in the city. Visit the Prado Museum which is one of the best and most popular art museums in the world. It has an overwhelming collection of masterpieces made by renaissance and baroque masters. The city’s main square holds centuries of history in its cobbled streets and has been a part of everything from coronations to bullfights and beheadings. Spend a lazy afternoon having picnic with friends and messing about in a rowing boat in the lake of the most beautiful park in Madrid, Retiro Park.

    What sets Madrid apart?
    Spain is a paradise for food lovers, and where else than the capital will you find some of the best tapas? Visit the Mercado San Miguel for some gourmet local specialities, Lateral for tasty tapas (especially their tortilla) and a lively young atmosphere. Another thing which makes Madrid a good student city is that it is a lot cheaper than other European cities. Travel, student accommodation, restaurants, and bars are all more affordable than big cities such as Paris or London. Though the city offers great transportation facilities yet it’s easy to visit everything on foot.
