Apartments offer more space than a hotel with your own kitchen and living room. It’s possible to sleep four people for the same price as a hotel room, and larger groups in some apartments. Short stays from a single night are possible with discounts given for longer stays. Sharing an apartment with friends or family can reduce the cost of accommodation significantly and also give you a lot more flexible eating options.
