The Romanian capital of Bucharest has beautiful and varied architecture, a rich and colourful history, and warm summers. It also has a relatively low cost of living, which makes it a popular destination for digital nomads, remote workers, and expats.
This article explains how to find long term rentals in Bucharest. The first thing you need to ask yourself is how long you plan to stay: less than six months or more than six months?
Staying for Less Than Six Months
Renting for less than six months is always hard, regardless of the country that you’re in. Most landlords expect a minimum of six months and, for anything less, you’re often limited to short term accommodation.
As with most cities, Airbnb is the main website for finding short to medium-term rentals. Although the prices are going to be higher than renting directly, the monthly rates in Bucharest are actually very reasonable.
Monthly Airbnb rates start from around €350, and you can get a well-reviewed, superhost-hosted apartment for around €500 per month. Of course, if you’re staying for longer than a month, you can try haggling with the hosts as well to see if they’ll offer you a discount.
