Long-term apartment rentals in Rome
So you’ve decided to move to Rome and indulge in la dolce vita, huh? Maybe it’s for work reasons, study-abroad programs, or you simply want to live in the Eternal City. But one thing’s for sure, whatever the reason, you’re probably going to have to find an apartment at this point (a long-term apartment)!
Where to begin? Starting out is always the toughest part, but no worries, once you start searching, your cozy home away from home won’t be too hard to find! Apart from standard agencies, which charge a fee on top of the apartment rental fee, there are various online resources you can consult to find your apartment in Rome.
Studentsville is the accommodation research platform that mainly targets students that are looking for medium to long term accommodation in the Italian peninsula, whether it’s for traveling, for studying or just for vacationing. But hey, that doesn’t mean regular tourists can’t check out their accommodations!
The main strength that comes with the Studentsville Accommodation Platform is that most of the revenue that is generated from visitors booking an apartment is given to the homeowners. You’ll be giving most of your rent fee to the local community. Some of their many pros include verified hosts, safe payments and an international network. It’s pretty straight forward and easy to use when you visit, and that makes the whole ordeal of booking an apartment as relaxed as possible.
Spotahome is definitely another resource you can’t omit from your house hunting list. With 7 languages to choose from, and houses in cities all over the world, it’s definitely time you start relying on them.
Just go on their website, choose the city and check in and check out dates and voilà, a list of amazing apartments awaits you. The best part? All apartment pictures are made by Spotahome, so you won’t have any weird surprises once you set foot in the apartment!
Rentola is a easy-to-use website that works to facilitate contact between tenants and landlords, taking away the hassle of apartment hunting. They have over 335,000 listings available in many popular countries, including Italy. All you need to do is search a location and choose from one of their many incredible listings.
Not only is the site extremely easy to use, they make the process that much easier by offering you their free “Search Agent.” All you need to do is input some general information about the property you are looking for and you’ll receive emails each time a new rental matching your wishes is added. They also have an extremely helpful blog that shares various tips such as avoiding housing fraud, decorating your new house, and more!
Porta Portese is a gigantic agency that has an online platform where people can advertise pretty much anything. From job opportunities to house and apartment rentals and purchases, Porta Portese has it all!
The downside of this website is that it’s only available in Italian, but don’t panic, just head on over to the “Immobiliare” section and fill out the required fields in the “Affitto-Subaffitto” section and you’ll find offers in no time! You can filter by price, location, number of rooms and any other requirements you may have.
