Budget Apartment Rentals in Salamanca, Spain

Salamanca is called the "Spanish Town" because of the prestige of the university and the high quantity of Language Schools. That is the main reason, but not the only one for which many students come to Salamanca to learn Spanish. And summer time is the main season they choose.

But, also, many students find a problem when try to search for accommodation in Salamanca. Most Language schools offer accommodation in families which, although it is a good choice for younger students, many people, postgraduates and professionals who use the summer to learn about other cultures and languages​​, prefer to stay in an apartment to have more independence and privacy.

Fortunately, apartments-salamanca.com, we can offer fully equipped apartments with WIFI INTERNET AND ALL BILLS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE, available during the summer months.

Customer Support at Websites of Vacation Rentals Madrid


Today it is easy to find an apartment to rent for days, weeks or months on the Internet . The offer is very wide.

Choosing the type of apartment is not difficult : most ads have many photos. A map with the exact location is also shown. And the price also tends to be well defined .





Now, for example, how can we be sure that the area where the apartment is located we have chosen is appropriate when we don´t know the city? How can we know the distance , or the time it take to get to our place of work or study ?



And this is where the problem comes . Many websites offer many apartments where each owner describes your accommodation and the area where it is located. Yes , but there is nobody to resolve our doubts about which apartment would suit us best depending on our kind of stay ( tourism, work , studies, etc. ) .





In these websites , which feed exclusively of apartments from private owners , there is no customer service . Nobody can inform us of additional features , because the customer service don´t know the apartments, neither knows the area where the apartments are located, neither the city.




Fortunately , there are still websites that offer personalized attention. Websites which have a specialized Customer Service who knows the apartments they advertise and the area where they are located. And therefore Customer staff who can solve our doubts, and help us find the apartment that suits our needs.

And that's the main advantage of homesfortravellers.com . We personally know the apartments we advertise, and we know the area where they are located. We also know the city, and transportation and other practical aspects that, after all , are the ones who will shape our trip.



Why we only advertise apartments in Madrid and Salamanca?. Because they are the cities that we know best . And then we can help you find what you need.



Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the apartment, the area or transportation in Madrid or Salamanca. We can help you , and we are happy to do so.


You can contact us by email or phone (+34 914442719)

Disfruta la Semana Santa en España


La Semana Santa en España es, quizás, la tradición más arraigada y la que más puede sorprender a todos aquellos que tienen la oportunidad de disfrutarla.
Muchos se sorprenden de las diferentes Semanas Santas que pueden encontrar dependiendo de la zona o región donde se celebra en España. Porque aunque en todas las zonas la semana Santa es un acontecimiento religioso, la manera cómo es "vivida" y "sentida" cambia enormemente de una región a otra.

Así, en el centro y Norte de España, nos encontraremos con una Semana Santa sobria, recogida, que busca la penitencia y el arrepentimiento. Las procesiones son más silenciosas, la música más solemne,  y los sentimientos están más ocultos.

En cambio, en el Sur de España, en Andalucía, la Semana Santa se caracteriza por una explosión de sentimientos mucho más espontáneos,  que muchas veces acaban en cánticos…y otras en llanto.

Semana Santa en España 2013

Para los profanos, y para muchos de nosotros, el ver cómo sienten, o como sufren  los "cofrades" nos resulta, cuando menos sorprendente. No sólo tiene que ver con la religión, sino con una tradición muy arraigada que sigue viva, y que merece la pena ver y disfrutar.

Y curioso también resulta que grandes ciudades como Madrid sigan manteniendo esta tradición tan antigua.
Pues sí, en Madrid se siguen celebrando las tradicionales procesiones en varias Iglesias del centro. No es que Madrid se pare por ser Semana Santa, sino que esta tradición tan antigua convive con todo tipo de espectáculos culturales y exposiciones.

Y si realmente estáis interesados en conocer en profundidad la Semana Santa en España os recomendamos visitar la Semana Santa de Salamanca, donde apreciaréis la solemnidad de los pasos enclavados en una preciosa ciudad monumental, Patrimonio de la Unesco. También Zamora y Valladolid son especialmente recomendables.

Semana Santa en Salamanca

Para los que tenéis más tiempo, os sugerimos visitar la Semana Santa de Sevilla o la de Málaga, ambas también de reconocido interés turístico.

Y por supuesto, para todos aquellos que queréis conocer la cultura española, o sentir cómo viven los madrileños, salmantinos o españoles en general, os aconsejamos, como siempre, alojaros en uno de nuestros apartamentos en Madrid, que están situados a pocos metros de donde se celebran las principales actividades religiosas y culturales.

Prices are decreased on holiday rentals in Madrid

In our previous articles we explained, that because of the crisis, has changed the profile of the people who rent their homes. We also said that, in many cases, the apartment owners do it to survive, because if they rent their home, theowners get extra money to help them pay their mortgage and to offset that income they once had and now not and they need it more than ever.

We also talked about which has grown enormously in demand for this type of seasonalrental. More people, prefer to be more travellers than tourists, and want to know the place they visit thoroughly, living the experiences the local people have. Renting an apartment instead of a hotel room, offers many advantages , mainly more space and freedom , and more amenities.

This, coupled with the increasing availability of websites offering holiday apartments for days, weeks and months, has favored the increase in this form of travel.

But to fully understand this change, we can´t forget the price factor.

The price plays a key role in this dramatic increase in demand for rental apartments. And the fact is that the prices have dropped significantly.

If we compare the prices at which the apartments were rented in Madrid (but not only in Madrid) 4 or 5 years ago with the prices that are now offered, we see that although the cost of living has risen sharply, the apartments are rented much cheaper.

But, are they really cheaper?

Yes! We, that started this activity from 2004 in Madrid for Rent, we can assure that prices have fallen by up to 50 %!

More Apartments for rent short term? Higher quality at a lower price?

It seems incredible, right? But it's true!

We could think that the apartments offered are of lower quality. But it is not like that: it has also increased the quality and equipment of the apartments.

So how does explain this fall in apartment Rental prices? Very simple: the competition has increased. Demand has grown, yes. But as the supply is so large, the owners have been forced to lower their prices, while offering higher quality. It's just the law of supply and demand ... in times of crisis.

Of course, not all apartments are the same, not all offer the same level of quality, or cleaning . And not all owners offer the same level of attention.



And this is the subject of the next article. See you!

Bajan los precios en alquileres temporales en Madrid

Explicábamos en nuestros anteriores artículos, como lacrisis ha ido cambiando el perfil de las personas que alquilan su vivienda. Decíamos que, en muchos casos, lo hacen para sobrevivir, pues alquilando su casa, los propietarios obtienen un dinero extra que les ayuda a pagar su hipoteca y a compensar esos ingresos que antes tenían y ahora necesitan.

También hablábamos de que ha crecido enormemente la demanda de este tipo de alquiler temporal. Cada vez más personas se sienten más viajeros que turistas, y prefieren conocer el lugar que visitan a fondo, viviendo las experiencias que tienen los nativos. Alquilar un apartamento en vez de la habitación de un hotel, ofrece muchas ventajas, principalmente más espacio y libertad, y más comodidades.

Esto, unido a la creciente oferta de páginas web que ofrecen alquileres de apartamentos por días, semanas y meses, ha favorecido el aumento de dicha forma de viajar.

Pero, para entender completamente este cambio, no nos podemos olvidar del factor precio.

El precio juega un papel fundamental en este increíble aumento de la demanda del alquiler de apartamentos. 

Y el hecho es que los precios han bajado de forma significativa.

Si comparamos los precios a los que se alquilaban los apartamentos en Madrid (pero no sólo en Madrid) hace 4 o 5 años con los precios que se ofrecen ahora, vemos que, aunque el coste de la vida ha subido mucho, los apartamentos se alquilan mucho más baratos.

¿Realmente son más baratos?

Nosotros que, casi desde que se inició esta actividad del alquiler temporal en Madrid desde 2004, os podemos asegurar que los precios han bajado hasta un 50%!

¿Apartamentos de más calidad a menos precio?

Parece increíble, ¿no? Pues es verdad!

Podríamos pensar que los apartamentos que se ofrecen son de menor calidad. Pero no es así: también ha aumentado la calidad y el equipamiento de los apartamentos.

Entonces, ¿cómo se explica esta bajada de los precios de los apartamentos de alquiler temporal?  Muy simple: ha aumentado la competencia. Ha crecido la demanda, sí. Pero como la oferta es tan grande, los propietarios se han visto obligados a bajar sus precios, ofreciendo a la vez más calidad. No es más que la ley de la oferta y la demanda…en tiempos de crisis.

Por supuesto, no todos los apartamentos son iguales, ni todos ofrecen el mismo nivel de calidad, ni de limpieza. Ni tampoco todos los propietarios ofrecen el mismo nivel de atención al cliente. Porque muchos no son profesionales...

Por eso, ahora más que nunca, es fundamental elegir bien la página web donde reservar tus apartamentos.


Y este es el tema del próximo artículo. Te esperamos!
