Furnished apartments listed on Homelike come in all shapes and sizes—but what exactly does the term furnished apartments, or furnished housing, mean? Which types are offered by Homelike—and which are not?
While there is no standard industry definition, simply put, a furnished apartment is just a broad term to describe a residential rental property which includes furniture in the price. The units are generally rented for temporary periods of time, which vary from days, weeks, months or even years. The extent of the furnishings differs between each listing and should be chosen based on the purpose of the accommodation and individual lifestyle needs.
A furnished apartment from Homelike fills the gap between traditional apartment rentals and hotels. Business professionals traveling for several months at a time can especially benefit from furnished apartments, which are usually equipped with their own kitchen and laundry facilities—a luxury which most hotel rooms lack. In addition to the comfort, booking a furnished apartment can save travelers up to 40% on average compared to a hotel.
