Frequently Answered Questions
Looking for an apartment?
If you are looking for an apartment, a loft or a room, you simply have to go to “Find Apartment” and search for the properties that mostly suit you. If you like a property, you can click to find more information about it, you can put it in your “Favorites”, you can send a private message to the landlord.
Renting out your own property?
If you have an apartment, a loft, a house or a single room that you want to rent out, you simply have to click on “Submit Property” in the main menu. Here, it will be easy to add a title, a short description and the price for your property. We also suggest you to upload a few pictures of the apartment as people will mostly contact you if they can have an overview of how the property looks like. You will also add some contact details where you prefer to receive inquiries for the rental.

We want our platform to be free from any kind of scam.
Booking and Payment
Once you have found an apartment/room you like, you can request the availability to the landlord by selecting the check-in and check-out dates and clicking on “Book”: the landlord will be notified and when he accepts your request you will receive an email for the payment. Follow the link on the email to process the payment through our secure partner PayPal. We will keep your money until the day when you move in the apartment. If you find that the apartment/room does not correspond to the description, you should notify us within 48 hours and you will get back the money you paid for the deposit.
