We know that it can be confusing to understand which housing platform is reliable and trustworthy as there are so many options in Madrid to hunt for your new home. To make it easier for you, we created the “Housing Request” form which is a free service aimed to help you in finding the perfect new home in Madrid that matches your needs and expectations!

In the form below you have the option to specify the type of housing that you are looking for. The options are:

  • Shared Apartment – Room in a shared flat with other young internationals or Spanish students. The most affordable and popular option in Madrid.
  • Studio Apartment – More expensive than sharing a flat but less availability throughout the city.
  • Student Residency – Living in a residency is more costly but puts you in contact with many like-minded peers.
  • Homestay – Living with a Spanish family which will foster cultural exchange but less personal freedom during your time in Madrid.

An Important COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 has introduced several new challenges to the flat hunting process in Madrid.

In general, the concept of choosing an apartment before even landing in the city might seem odd. But it is common practice in many European cities. Those looking for a flat in Madrid in the next months may also have to deal with new immigration rules set by the Spanish government. Which could mean a temporary quarantine period at home upon arrival to Madrid. Making it even more important now than ever to find your accommodation beforehand! In addition to general uncertainty and desire to see your flat in person, there are risk factors that come with this method of apartment hunting. One being fake announcements and scams on various housing portals.

To help you avoid this, we’ve updated our Housing Request Form process, so that we will only be putting you in touch with the most trustworthy housing agencies in the city. These agencies will guarantee full refund policies of your deposits and will also offer reduced service fees, or, in some cases, no services fees at all. Additionally, many of these agencies will offer flexible arrival dates, and some discounts for their tenants.

Please make sure to understand their concrete offering in detail and if you are unsure, reach out to us at info@citylifemadrid.com and we will review it for you!
