Cheap student accommodation in Barcelona
Prices of student flats to rent in Barcelona vary widely, from anything near 300 EUR per month for a room to more than 2000 EUR for a luxury student accommodation in a well-located area. One of the hot-spots of the city is the incredible Gothic Quarter, located at the sleeve of Las Ramblas, and the funny this is that the district is not even Gothic. What happened is that at the turn of the 19th and 20th century this part of town was revamped for the 1929 International Exhibition - and given its stylish look from Middle Ages. The fashion turned out to be such a success, that the city continued building neo-gothic structures well into 60’s.
Private student accommodation in Barcelona
There’s plenty of hipster, up-and-coming, beautifully gentrifying places all over the city. One of these is Gràcia, a formerly independent town that was annexed to Barcelona at the end of the 19th century. It sports big attractions, such as the UNESCO world patrimony site, Park Güell, and Casa Vicens, both designed by Gaudi. What’s probably more important, though, is that, apart from Passeig de Gracia, fancy shopping area, Garcia is an intimate neighborhood with a low-key, local life. Instead of food chains, you have homey tapas bars serving wonderful tiny plates of food. And people just love to leisurely seat at the tables in the middle of beautiful squares.
Student studio apartments near the University
There’s, of course, a lot more to choose from - you can decide to be near the University of Barcelona, in an international student accommodation somewhere near the wonderful contemporary art museum MACBA. This part of town is like time travel, with its narrow streets, decorative architecture, skate parks, super old bars, and vibrant nightlife.
Best student apartments and flats in Barcelona - what else do you need to know before moving?
Aside from finding a fully furnished student accommodation in Barcelona, to make most out of your stay you can also consider:
- picking up some basic Catalan before locating here;
- getting a nice, second-hand bike and a GREAT lock;
- invest in solid earplugs, as the city can get really noisy (this is a real problem there).
Summer student accommodation in Barcelona
Oh, and the beach. Before you decide that the only place you want your student room to be has to be near the (in)famous Barcelonetta, beware! It is conveniently central in the city and that means, it’s crazy, unpleasantly overcrowded pretty much all year long. It’s not really fun at the end.
