With all our shared apartments you experience life in a local city neighbourhood. Apartments are always a comfortable distance from the school and are well situated for exploring the rest of the city. Sharing with other language students and sometimes with locals means you can converse in Spanish outside the classroom.
This accommodation option provides complete independence. The kitchen, bathroom and living area are shared, while you have the privacy of your own bedroom. These apartments also offer a good value place to stay while being immersed in the Spanish or Latin American way of life.
This is a great option for those looking for the opportunity to live with a variety of people from very different cultures and backgrounds. While the shared apartments have a regular cleaning service of the common areas, students are expected to take care of the day-to-day cleaning, such as washing the dishes, taking out the rubbish, etc.
standard arrival is on Sunday, departure on Saturday
These fully equipped apartments are generally shared with an average of 2 to 5 locals and/or language school students (varies per location). You will have your own room which includes all of the standard necessities: single or double bed, wardrobe, table and chair, etc. The living room, kitchen and bathroom are shared with your housemates.
Please note that double rooms can only be reserved for 2 students traveling together. If you want to come together with a friend, and you want to stay in a single room in the same apartment, in most cases that’s no problem either. In both cases, please leave a note on the enrolment form.
We also have the possibility to stay in a single or a double room with a private bathroom. The use of the bathroom is exclusive for you. In some cases your private bathroom would be across the hall, rather than ensuite in your bedroom.
Our standard shared apartments offer everything you need for a pleasant stay. In Madrid we also offer what’s known as ‘shared apartment plus’. These are like the standard option, but are either a bit more luxurious, more spacious, or more centrally located.
Please note that double rooms can only be reserved for 2 students travelling together. If you want to come together with a friend, and you want to stay in a single room in the same apartment, in most cases that’s no problem either. In both cases, please leave a note on the enrolment form.
You can book an airport transfer ahead of your arrival. A driver will pick you up at the airport and drive you directly to your apartment or to the school. The price of this depends on the distance from the airport. Please take a look at transfer prices for your chosen location.
Please note the airport transfer is a single journey. A transfer back to the airport is not included. You can arrange this at the school or on request can be added to your reservation in advance.
