The city of Salamanca in northwestern Spain attracts large numbers of visitors every year – and for more extended accommodation needs a popular choice over a hotel is a short-term rental property.
Short-let rentals offer a number of benefits over hotels: they include kitchen facilities, allowing you to cook rather than eat out every day; they usually have living areas where you can relax with the same comfort you’re accustomed to back home; and they generally offer far better value for money. What’s more, you gain all of the advantages of staying in your own place but without any of the commitment of a long-term lease. Here are three of the best online resources for finding a short-term rental in Salamanca.
Booking.com are our first choice for short-term rentals in Salamanca for anything from a few days to a few weeks. One of the world’s biggest aggregator platforms, they are primarily used for hotel bookings, but also have homes and apartments available for short lets. When we searched for short-stay options in Salamanca, around 100 homes and apartments were available, starting at around Є289 per week for a one-bed apartment. Searching is simple too – all you need is to select ‘entire houses and apartments’ on the filter on the left hand page and your search will be narrowed down for your specified dates. Booking.com also offer a Best Price Guarantee as well as guest reviews for each property.
Created in 2013 with the aim of dragging the old-school rentals market into the new digital era, Uniplaces is a marketplace aimed at students, young workers, digital nomads, travellers and families. Their choice of accommodation caters to all budgets and promises to remove the hassles and commitments of renting, whether you need a place for weeks, months or longer. When we searched for availability in Salamanca, we found 45 apartments and studios for rent, starting at Є400 per month for a 3-bed apartment. For extra peace of mind, after paying your first month’s rent, Uniplaces wait until 24 hours after you move in to transfer it to the landlord, allowing you time to confirm everything is ok with your property.
With around 55 Salamanca properties on its books, Spotahome has a good selection of apartments and studios for rent all across the city and further out into its suburbs too. When we searched for availability, monthly rates started at Є260 for a one-bed apartment close to the city centre. However, it’s worth noting that prices can plummet by as much as 7% if the apartment is rented out for periods of over six months. Like most short-term rental companies, Spotahome also add administration fees, so be sure to keep an eye on those extra costs before booking.
