    I am in Bristol now for 12 weeks, but having checked the prices of accomodation, the huge hassle with paying council taxes, new electricity account, etc., it appears it is cheaper to stay in a very nice 4* hotel Mon-Fri and hop on a Ryanair flight back to Dublin at the weekend which costs €10. A LOT cheaper overall than getting an actual apartment or doing a short term let (well assuming I don't want to live with a bunch of students).

    Free Wifi, Gym, etc., . Why the hell haven't I always been living in a hotel. I never need to clean up after myself.

    Piss Cock Partridge.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    12 week lets must be few and far between, and serviced apartments are £££

    Suprised that works out cheaper though, how much is it per night? do you get a discount for the period?

    Either way, thats feckin cool, I would love to live in a hotel :D

    Make sure you get yourself a 12" plate for the buffet.

    I'm worried, because I got that. :/

    ....

    Sounds like an awesome plan Red Moose, though I kind of feel sorry for the house keeping staff.

    ohh and remember don't mention the war!

    Yeah, it's too short for a regular rental which won't do under 6 months, and plus I have no credit status in the UK so basically I can't even register an electricity account without giving my left testicle. Serviced apartments was an option and still is, but I looked at them, and the hotel, and figured the hotel was nicer. Works out about the same. I might get sick of it in a few weeks but the novelty hasn't worn out yet (it's only been, eh, today, so far :) ). I've just realised thinking through my great plan that I don't have a kitchen. But who gives a shit because I have a giant restaurant downstairs.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Really? I don't think I could cope with having to yank my bedsheets out from under the mattress for more than a fortnight.

    I've always wanted to know how they get the sheets so tight - do they use a special machine or something?

    Really? I hate hotels, for much the same reason I can't live in an apartment (tried it twice). You're usually surrounded by adjoining rooms/flats on at least four sides. The odds of you not being stuck next to a noisy cunt, especially in a long hotel stay with different people staying, is very small.

    Very similar situation for me coming up soon. Difference is I'm trying to get a serviced apartment as I want to have the option of staying in the city at weekends, having friends round etc and want to be able to cook and all that jazz.

    Don't think I would really want to live in a hotel for that long, could be a bit weird.

    City is Manchester btw, don't really know anyone up there either yet :o

    Serviced apartment is what I am actually planning as they will happily cut 15% or more off the rates. Hotel is easier when simply arriving the first week. I figured I needed to go and walk around and see where the serviced apartments were. A few I viewed before Christmas were okay inside but were in complete shithole areas judging by the surrounds.

    Manchester is much bigger so there is probably a much more developed short term serviced apartment business there. Bristol appears to be a student town and doesn't really "do" corporate style lets, or at least from my experience there is limited choice or else long term 6 month + for students or in housing estates.
