10 Reasons To Stay In Short Term Accommodation


With Short Term Rental homes we can offer rates which reduces the longer your stay. So while an equivalent hotel room will stay at a fixed price each night, a short term rental will get better value with every additional night. This means that you can end up saving a third of the cost that you would spend if you stayed in a hotel.

This can mean you have considerably more wiggle room in your budget and can spend that money on other aspects of your stay, like exploring your new city! 

One of the best features about short term house rentals is the privacy that they offer. With so much more space of your own to entertain and relax in, you don’t need to just stay in the small confines of one room like you do in a hotel, sharing most of your walls with strangers. It also means there’s no more having to try to work in disruptive public spaces or having to pay extra to rent office space.


Many hotel rooms provide little more than a bed and a bath; a dresser, wardrobe, desk or small couch may be included if you’re lucky. Serviced houses are fully furnished with all the typical furniture you’d find in a home. So you won’t have to eat takeaway sitting on your bed or spend your days tripping over the suitcase that you’re living out of. 

Hanging up your clothes, having a sofa and coffee table to relax at and a kitchen to prepare food in may seem like small things before you get there, but they make a huge difference when it’s your home every night for a sustained period.


If your family is visiting or joining you on your temporary relocation then you will have space to all stay together, while still having your own space. If you choose a two or three-bedroom short stay houses you can have a bedroom each and enjoy sharing the living room and kitchen with each other. 

In a hotel, it’s likely you will either have to all squeeze in together or have to book an extra room, which could be a trek away or at the very least the other side of two automatically locking doors.


Some short term rentals come with onsite amenities – this can include the option of a dedicated parking space, so if you’re driving, you won’t have to pay London’s car parking charges, with no risk of getting a ticket if you park in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Depending on the location of your short term rental you could leave your car there and head into central London on the excellent public transport links, avoiding the Congestion Zone.


When you’re renting as a group, whether that’s with friends, family or colleagues – having separate rooms within your own private accommodation can transform the experience, making it more social and, with a work team, considerably more productive – without having to sacrifice the privacy of closing your own door at the end of the day. 


Staying in a short let houses allows you to see your destination through the eyes of a local. As well as having your own pad in town where you can entertain, it also gives you the opportunity to stay in more residential areas and get a true sense of what it would be like to live there. You might find your own favourite little cafe or walk along the river.


Short term houses give you the chance to feel truly at home while you’re away from your own. Tasteful decor and freedom to be creative at making it your own space can have a significant positive impact on your mental health. Allowing you to feel more relaxed and settled, providing a better base from which to work more productively and thoroughly enjoy your time in your new city.


By choosing a short term rental you get all the perks of having your own fully equipped kitchen – which means you can enjoy the freedom and flexibility of cooking for yourself, controlling what and when you eat or rustling up a decent snack when you’re hungry. This will save money (and your energy) on dining out for every meal and means you can go for healthier options, if you feel so inclined.


While you’re staying temporarily in a new city and trying to concentrate on getting your job done efficiently, the last thing you want is to be moving about more often than you have to.
If you know you’re going to be in the area for three weeks , six weeks or couple of months or what ever it might be, you know you can be settled and not worry about uprooting and relocating in the middle of your secondment or project.
One of the best features of short term homes rentals is the privacy they offer. With so much more space of your own to entertain and relax in, you don’t need to just stay in the small confines of one room like you do in a hotel, sharing most of your walls with strangers. It also means there’s no more having to work in noisy public spaces.
