As an alternative to serviced apartments, you may also wish to consider renting a room on a flatshare basis. There are plenty of people who are looking for people to rent rooms in their homes and this can often offer a great opportunity to find temporary accommodation at an affordable cost. If you are relocating on your own, it can also provide you with a chance to meet new people.
