I'd like to rent an apartment in Barcelona preferably or Madrid for a month for the ultimate vacation in June probably.
I would love some advice on how to go about doing this.
How much would I expect to pay? Fees/costs associated with rentals? (common rental practice in USA is first, last, security and realtor's fee) What should I expect to pay in utilities and how does one set this up? Good neighborhoods? Suggested realtors? Would consider renting a room in a house, but am a little nervous (single female, limited spanish skills....)
