For those seeking a temporary living solution, short-term rentals provide all the benefits of a long lease but at significantly cheaper rates than if you were a long-term tenant. These kind of apartments also often come furnished and with amenities such as kitchens and living spaces. With Airbnb dominating the short-term market online, it can be difficult to find alternatives, but we’ve done some research and selected some of the best companies offering monthly furnished rentals in Madrid.

 The Homelike

Homelike caters for people requiring accommodation for one month or longer. Offering flexible move-in and move-out dates, their services are especially popular with business travellers. The platform offers high-quality apartment photographs and unlike many other competitors, tenants don’t pay any fees. Furthermore, all utility costs are included in the rental price and often no deposit is required. When we searched for Madrid monthly apartment rentals, we found over 900 properties available, with rates starting at €500 per month for a 1-bed home in the city centre. Other website perks include an instant booking filter, which lets you book directly without needing the home owner’s approval, and free cancellation up to 48 hours prior to move-in.


Established in 2013, Blueground offer furnished apartments with flexible leases for monthly rentals. Their professionally-managed properties span everything from studios to multi-bedroom apartments, and they are particularly well-known for their more high-end options. Stays of more than a month can lead to large savings, as the longer your booking, the cheaper the nightly rate comes out at. During our search for Madrid properties, we found rates starting from €1,280 per month for a one-bed apartment in the Argüelles neighbourhood close to the city centre. Overall the company lists over 150 available apartments in and around Madrid, with most clustered around the central district. Booking is simple and intuitive, and there’s a 24-hour support service accessed via a guest app.


Founded in 2014 with a vision to make incredible homes easily accessible to everyone, HomeToGo have since grown to become a renowned online marketplace for weekly rentals of up to two weeks. Their AI-powered marketplace matches supply and demand to connect travellers with the perfect property for any trip around the world. They operate local apps and websites in 25 countries across Europe and beyond. In Madrid, they offer thousands of properties, with prices as low as €29 per night for a one-bed apartment. They also offer regular last-minute deals that can see regular rates reduced by up to 75%.


With over 2,000 furnished apartments on their books across Madrid, Spotahome are particularly popular for flat shares and student home. Based on our searches, monthly rates start at €575 for a one-bedroom apartment in the city’s riverside suburb of Usera, unofficially known as Madrid’s Chinatown,. It’s worth mentioning that prices on Homelike can drop by as much as 7% if the apartment is rented out for a period of 6 months or longer. On the other hand, Spotahome do add administration fees to the advertised price, so be sure to check these before booking to avoid any nasty surprises.

From downtown to the city’s most picturesque neighbourhoods, they have a property for every taste, and their team is available to help renters along every step of the booking process.
