Summary

Affordable summer accommodation in a student residence in the centre of Madrid.

Introduction

Jaime del Amo Residence is situated in the main university district of Madrid. The building was completely renewed during the academic year of 2009-2010 and now has much improved services and facilities (swimming pool, sports facilities, library, meeting and conference rooms, chapel).

Offering single ensuite accommodation, located in the heart of Madrid (20 minutes’ walk from the city centre and a 2 minute walk to the nearest metro station), the residence is surrounded with trees and gardens which, along with the swimming pool, provide an ideal environment for both studying and rest.

During the academic year this is a masculine student residence, however, we will gladly accommodate any guests that wish to stay here.

Food and Drinks

Both near the residence and in the whole of Madrid you will very easily find restaurants and other places where you can enjoy typical Spanish cuisine. On the premises, the dining hall serves home-made, simple but very appetising meals, which represent some of the best culinary traditions.

Self-service breakfast is included in your stay. If you wish to include lunch or dinner in your stay you will need to request this at reception on arrival and pay the set tariffs.

There is also a cafeteria which is open afternoons and evenings, as well as several vending machines selling cold drinks and snacks.

Grounds and gardens

Although the residence is very close to the centre of Madrid and 2 minutes’ walk from the nearest metro station, it is in an ideal location: surrounded by trees and in an area where there is much more parkland than there is buildings. The swimming pool is situated in a nice garden where you can get some peace and quiet from the noisy city.

Other facilities

All guests staying at the residence can use the pool as well as other public areas: there are study rooms, meetings and conference rooms (we will need to know in advance if you need to use these), and a common room with television and newspapers. There is WiFi Internet connection throughout the residence and individual internet access in all rooms via RJ45 etherhet cable (we do not supply these).

I have often used this site to book rooms in the UK-this was my first experience with booking overseas. The booking procedure was falutless-the accomodation exactly what it said it was-the college staff and students at the residence were very polite and charming. I would readilt recommend both, and stay again
