Finding apartments with parking in the capital
Many people look for an area that has services, shopping options and leisure opportunities, when they move to the capital. And mostly young people prefer this kind of neighbourhood.
The areas that meet these requirements most of the time, are usually the neighbourhoods near the centre of the city. There are several interesting neighbourhoods in the centre of Madrid, and people who like to explore the city’s cultural activities, like museums, theatres, libraries and art galleries, often say these are the best areas to live in. If you like partying and going out on weekends, the centre offers many places of great diversity.
There are a few neighbourhoods with a lot of cultural, gastronomic, leisure and entertainment options, like La Latina, Malasaña and Chueca.
These neighbourhoods have many shops, boutiques and discos, that attract a large number of visitors to the city.
Unfortunately, these are also the neighbourhoods where you will only find a limited number of apartment buildings with parking possibilities in the same building, as these are mostly older buildings in narrow streets. Most of the times it concerns pedestrian areas as well.
Despite the limited number of apartments with private parking, it must be said that the parking that is available in the area is reserved for its residents (Zona Verde), and many of the underground car parks are also only accessible for people that live in the area.
