The district of Las Letras is one of the most charming areas of the city. This historic area of narrow alleys between Cruz Street and Paseo del Prado is perfect for any student looking to rent a room or apartment near the center of Madrid.
In addition to housing attractions such as the house-museum of Lope de Vega or the church of San Sebastián, is full of bars and restaurants, so the atmosphere is very lively at weekends. The bars and the terraces of the Plaza de Santa Ana are recommended for tapas.
Metro line 1 serves the southern area of the neighborhood, with stops at Antón Martín and Atocha station. If you find a room for students in the district of the Letras you can easily move to the main universities, thanks to the good connections in metro and train.
The metro journey from Antón Martín to Ciudad Universitaria takes only 30 minutes. Cercanías line C4 will be very useful if you study at Universidad Carlos III or Universidad Autónoma, since you can arrive in 35 and 47 minutes, respectively.
