What situations are best for short-term accommodation?

If you find yourself in a situation where you need a place to stay for a short period, it can be difficult deciding on the type of accommodation you need. Do you go for a fully-fledged apartment or will a hotel suit your needs for the time being? This is a question many ask and with a large number of accommodation providers out there, it is not an easy question to answer.


In today’s blog, we have a look at some of the different situations where affordable short-term accommodation would be the best option for a place to stay.


  • When you are renovating your current apartment


When we are making developments to our current living situation, we often find it challenging living on top of construction work. It can get in the way of personal time and is very difficult, especially if you have a stressful job.


Provided the funds are available, booking short term accommodation is a great way to get out of the home when building work is being conducted. It gives you some fresh scenery and can be perfect if the work is only due to take place for 1-2 weeks. If the accommodation is catered, it can also act as a sort of ‘mini-break’. Perfect if you want to take a few days off to unwind.



  • If you are on a short-mid term work assignment


Work assignments can often be time-consuming and can involve travelling to a different country where necessary. If the assignment is due to be longer than the run-of-the-mill business trip, it may be worth booking some more substantial short-term accommodation than a hotel.


Are well-fitted apartment gives you more space to unwind and is great if you are going to be staying in the placement for longer than a week. The other advantage of short-term accommodation is that they can be found in many different cities around the world, perfect if your assignment is in an unusual place.


  • If you are planning a mid-length holiday


When you are planning a holiday many people often go for a hotel, and while this is a good option, it can become quite cramped if you have to stay there for more than a week. Booking short-term accommodation for longer holidays gives you loads more space, which can be a game-changer if you are travelling with a larger family.



  • Short-term accommodation is great for honeymoons


Honeymoons are a time when you do not want to worry or stress at all, which is why they are a great situation for booking alternative short-term accommodation. Hotels can often be a pain, with cramped rooms and poor service. If you are staying in short-term accommodation you will have a kitchen and a more complete living space. This is great if you are going on a 2-3 week honeymoon.



Try to pick the right type of short-term accommodation for your personal needs


As shown there are several different situations where booking short-term accommodation is good for both your wallet and your personal wellbeing. Whatever reason you have for booking short term accommodation, make sure you pick one that is well located in the places you need to visit. This will add to the overall quality of your stay tremendously.
