Sick of scouring the worlds hotels in order to find the perfect holiday? Fed up of feeling like youre always living out of your suitcase? There is a solution: forget hotels, rent an apartment! This new trend of accommodation is rapidly gaining popularity. Rather than staying in a hotel on their holidays, holidaymakers are opting for this more attractive solution. Renting an apartment is usually more cost-effective than paying for several nights at a hotel. This is especially the case if you are travelling in a small group of 3-8 people. For example, if you are a group of four on a week-long holiday, an apartment at £400 will cost you much less than 6 nights at a hotel at £50 per person.
Besides the price, renting an apartment affords you additional comfort.

Also, the decor is often more personalised than in many hotel rooms with can have an institutional feel.
