It is no secret that we are a lot of people living on this earth. And it is also no secret that a lot of these people tend to want to live in the same places. Big cities all over the world, therefore, experience the same problem – a shortage of reasonable housing solutions.
But that is not all. In the last couple of years, Swedish companies look outside of Sweden to find and employ talented staff with specific skills. As a recruited talent, you often get relocation help but one thing that tends to be tricky is finding a place to stay.
We have written about how to try and find long term accommodation in Sweden and also what to do in a housing emergency but here we want to talk about a temporary housing solution – basically, a place to stay for 1 – 4 months.
What is temporary housing?
Temporary housing is simply put a place to stay for for longer that you’d normally stay in a hotel but shorter than a rental contract. Your best option here is what is mostly called a long stay. This is bigger hotel rooms or smaller hotel apartments that you can rent for a minimum of 30 days and that won’t entirely empty your wallet like if you stayed the same amount of days in a regular hotel.
Now, these long stay options are usually not for everyone and tend to fit best for people who are in Sweden temporarily for work or if you are a newbie who has been recruited by a Swedish company.
How do I find temporary housing?
There are temporary housing solutions in many Swedish cities. Do you know where you will be staying in Sweden? If you do, just google “temporary housing, long stay, aparthotel” or långtidsboende + the name of the city where you will be living.
