The Apartment in Madrid where David stayed

You are traveling in Lyon. It is December, the sky has become a gray and uniform mass. It is a cold of a thousand demons but you are in a warm and modern apartment in the heart of the city that saw the Lumière brothers being born. A few minutes ago you went down to the boulangerie to buy some good croissants. The kitchen already smells like coffee and you watch from the window the first drops of a rain that seems long. You don't care too much. Bad weather will not play a trick on your vacation. You are in your newly rented apartment and you feel it as if it were your small temporary house where you will live Lyon like a real place for three days.

During the last years the apartment rental modality has grown exponentially. The possibility of staying in an apartment and having the feeling of being a local in the destination attracts a good number of travelers and this trend is observed in the growing competition of companies dedicated to renting apartments or apartments. The aggressiveness of the market also helps to find better conditions and price competitiveness.

This is the case of the holiday rental agency HouseTrip, with whom we contacted to stay in one of the apartments of its wide network of offers that can be seen in its section HouseTrip Lyon.

What advantages does renting an apartment offer?

1. On average they are usually cheaper than a hotel with a similar location or a smaller room.

Being able to rent an attic in Venice in summer and have candlelight dinner is possible. Or a design floor in the heart of the Marais de Paris. In addition, for long stays - a week or longer - the apartments are usually cheaper or you can try to agree the price with the owner.

2. You save extra payments on your trips

If you go to destinations especially recognized for its street markets and its gastronomic offer you can buy something and prepare it to your liking, either to have breakfast at home or prepare a good dinner with wine (at supermarket price). In addition, the breakfasts are "customizable" to your liking and without time limit or rigid schedules.

3. You can interact more deeply with the locals.

Going out the door and sharing the elevator with a neighbor instead of another tourist you would find in a hotel is always a curious experience. If you stay more than three or four days it is very likely that after a few "Good morning" shared in the morning, you end up having some interesting conversation with your new neighbors.

4. Sharing a flat with your friends can be fun.

Like renting a rural house independently, with your friends you can form a good atmosphere and spend a fun weekend in the center of an unknown city.
