If you have decided to stay you in a residence of students during the course, you must think that you will be for a long season. Based us in our experience as hotel company, we advice to follow these criteria:
1. Located in a good area: The location of the residence of students is one of the more important factors. If it is a good area you will have access to amenities, shops and activities more easily, allowing you to take advantage of your stay as student in Madrid.
2. Easy access to means of transport: another factor that you should consider when you have to choose residence in Madrid, is if it is located in a place with easy access to the buses, the underground , local train, etc. This is important if you want to move you with freedom, attend to the University without difficulties, etc.
3.Residency with the necessary services: water, gas, light, community, heating, air conditioning, and of course, WIFI connection, doorkeeper… One of the advantages of a residence is that it gives you everything you need so you can focus on learning the language, getting good grades and an unforgettable experience.
4. A well equipped residence: aside from the services, it is very important to have the furniture you need to lead a normal life, and comfortable as possible. Desk, comfortable beds, new linens, laundry, TV… The common areas are also important, because you will probably pass much time sharing that space with your flat mates.
5. Cozy residence: You will live there a long time. It is important that it is a friendly place, that you can feel like your own home. If you have chance to visit the residence before entering it (something which we recommend), look at the vibrations transmitted to you.
