The Most Popular Neighbourhoods of Madrid
You can see on the map that most people are heading to four main areas in Madrid. The most popular neighbourhood by far is Centro. Malasaña, Chamberi and Ciudad Universitaria all have plenty of fans too.
La Latina is one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Madrid. It is considered by some to be “the most authentic experience possible.” Think narrow streets, crowded squares, and great tapas bars.

Malasaña is the rebel neighbourhood of Madrid. It’s bohemian spirit and alternative ngithlife make this (according to Maria Almeida) “any student’s dream!”.
Interested? Here you can find plenty of affordable rooms in Malasaña.
Chamberi is a quieter alternative to Latina or Malasaña. It has a more relaxed, small time feeling: slow and relaxed, without many tourists. It’s a great place to really appreciate the genuine Madrid.
Ciudad Universitaria is the most convenient neighbourhood for students, because it’s so close to many of the universities. Luckily, the rent tends to be a little lower here too.
