FAQ

1.- What do I have to take into account when I look for a student room in Sevilla?

THE LOCATION:

Look for a centrical location as the NERVION QUARTER, where the 10 STUDENT ROOMS OF SEVILLAROOMRENTAL are located.

Make sure that it is a secure area, where you can go out as well as by day as by night.

That nearby you have plenty of shops where you can do your daily food shopping, such as: supermarkets, butchers, fish shops, groceries, fresh bread shops.

Important is also that in the same area you can go out and take some drinks and have fun with your friends.

That it is close to universities, metro, public transport in general, bycicle station…

   

THE APARTMENT/ROOM:

Be aware that most of the time the cheapest price does not mean the most economical opportunity.

If you are just happy with a bed, some furniture and a very basic kitchen go straight away for the cheapest one you have found on the different websites.

Afterwards it is more than possible that you have to spend money to adecuate it minimally  in order  not to be forced to go and have meals outside because of a lack of equipment in the apartment.

You can also take the “airport bus” that relies the airport to the city. In this case, I would let you know the nearest bus stop to the apartment, where you have chosen your room.

During your stay, you probably will go home somethimes. Then, the Airport bus is the best option to go and come back from the airport, as you do not carry the initial amount of suitcases. About 4 euros the drive. The day of arrival, I personally will be waiting in the apartment to welcome you and to start the useful and interesting "discovery tour". We recommend to arrive around midday or before 16 hours, in order to may fulfill entirely the programm of the "discovery Tour".
