There is a time and a place for hotels, but when you are visiting a new city or really want to explore a new place for the first time then a short term rental is the far better option. By having a home away from home you can really relax and enjoy your trip. Hotels require to have breakfast at a certain time and vacate your room by a certain time so it can be cleaned. Every single meal has to be eaten out too which greatly inflates the overall cost.
Hotels offer very little in terms of privacy and there is usually nothing to do once you have arrived back at the hotel which forces you to be out for as long as possible. When restrictions such as these are placed on you it can really affect the overall experience. Staying in a short term rental means you can come and go as you please. There are no other holiday makers around and you can have your own space. With a kitchen and laundry facilities on site you can keep costs down drastically and there is absolutely no pressure to stay out during the day for as long as possible.
