In Madrid, as in major European cities, has greatly increased the supply of temporary rental apartments.
This upward trend is mainly due to three factors. On the one hand, tourists and visitors have increased the demand of this type of accommodation because for less money you can get more space, privacy and amenities.

And for experience the local way of living, there is nothing better than staying in an apartment.
The second factor is determined by the need for owners to achieve a return on their property. In Spain, due to the crisis , and due to the current Rent Act , many homeowners decide to rent your apartment for short periods because it offers more security and less uncertainty.
And the third factor , we could consider the main one , is because there have been countless websites where owners can advertise their apartments and where those interested can reserve online .
