The current trend now is AirBnB which is much cheaper compared to a hotel. Renting an apartment or apartelle, as we call it, is also cheaper but the downside is the minimum days that is one week. We are frequent travelers abroad and domestic as well but we never tried other accommodations. It is always the hotel for us because we still have to learn of good feedback from people we know. We don’t rely on the reviews on the websites because they can be faked.
