I have a 3 friends (poor students!) who're coming here to visit me for around a week in late October. Since I can't accomodate them where I live, they'll have to stay elsewhere. Looking at the hotel rates we've found that they will have to pay at least around $7000 for a week, sharing a triple room. It looks like late October is a busy season for the hotels, the rates are much higher than in June-August for example.
Does anyone have a good suggestion for how to spend less on accommodation, a part from the few hostels? Are some serviced apartments available for such a short stay, is it cheaper and worth the savings?
Any recommendations would be appreciated!
