Renowned for its eclectic arts scene, Minneapolis attracts large numbers of visitors every year. It also exudes a youthful energy thanks to the presence of  the esteemed University of Minnesota Twin Cities. As for its short-let rentals, most of them are inevitably listed on Airbnb, but staying in someone else’s private home doesn’t necessarily appeal to everyone. Luckily, there are other options that offer a more professional, serviced approach complete with housekeeping and other perks. Here are three online resources for finding short term furnished apartment rentals in Minneapolis.


Booking.com are our recommended resource for finding a furnished short stay apartment in Minneapolis for spells of anything from a few days up to a few weeks. The platform has a globally renowned reputation and is known primarily as a hotel booking website, though they also have a substantial number of listed apartments. When we looked for daily or weekly rentals in Minneapolis, around 30 apartments were available, starting at $87 per night for a one-bedroom private suite on South 8th Street. They also offer a Best Price Guarantee as well as a comprehensive customer reviews section under each property so you can see what previous guests have to say about their stay.
