About Melon District

The company’s origins date back to 2001, when Rent a Bedroom S.L. was created with the cleat objective to lead the student accommodation market in Barcelona.

MelonDistrict is a new concept of accommodation for national and international students who are looking for a place to live in Barcelona.

This innovate proposal was born to address the needs and modern lifestyles of a dynamic and demanding public.

Urban locations, an international atmosphere, and a wide range of services based on demanding quality standards are the key aspects that define the MelonDistrict model, giving it this distinct style that goes beyond a simple accommodation service.

MelonDistrict’s priority is to offer flexible accommodation that is adapted to the requirements of students who come with different purposes, to study, to work, or simply to travel. This flexibility makes it the ideal option both for long stays as well as for medium or short stays.
