Whether you choose a private bedroom or a shared one at Arenal 16, you’re a 30-minute metro ride from the campuses at Ciudad Universitaria de Madrid. Walk two minutes to Sol metro whenever you feel like exploring further afield on weekends, or catch the bus from the stop down the road. Get tickets to a match at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, home of La Liga football team Real Madrid, or rent a rowboat and spend a lazy Sunday afternoon on the lake at El Parque del Buen Retiro.
From cooking utensils to your bedding and towels, your new home comes fully furnished. After a busy day, head straight to the kitchen to swap stories with your housemates over a tasty post-lecture snack. Put a load on to wash in the laundry room, then settle down on the living room sofa to catch up on your favourite TV shows. Wander out to the patio for a few minutes in the sun, before using the free Wi-Fi to get started on your assignments at your bedroom desk.
When you’re done, kick back in front of your in-room TV. With all utilities and a regular cleaning service included in your rent, relaxing comes naturally at Arenal 16. Later, sit down to eat in the dining area, freshen up with a hot shower in the shared bathroom, then choose a new outfit from your spacious wardrobe. Head out to Yambala bar for cocktails and a shisha session with friends, or get your live Blues fix at legendary local venue La Coquette. When you get home, sink into your memory foam mattress for a great night’s sleep.
