What is the difference between a short-stay apartment and a hotel room?

In comparison to a hotel, a short-stay apartment may offer more comfort, more space and more privacy with lower rates. Short-stay apartments are a great solution for:

  • flexible workers who are working on a project for weeks or months
  • accommodating friends and families who are visiting
  • new arrivals who first want to explore the city before renting long term
  • a temporary stay while renovating or moving
