If you’re staying in a city for a long time, looking for a rental is a good choice. At a rental you have most or all the amenities of an apartment for less than the price of a hotel.
You can rent from well established rental companies as well from people who have a place available to rent. People usually sublet their apartments when they are not using them.
It is a way for the owner to generate some income while the traveler saves money because he is paying just a portion of the rent as agreed.
If you are traveling to Nairobi, Kenya, accommodation is always available at Town Place Suites at amazingly affordable price.
Alternatively, you can find rentals anywhere in the world by searching on Google. You just have to search for a “sublet” or a “short term apartment”.
