Are you planning an upcoming trip to Los Angeles? No matter the reason for your visit, you will, of course, need a place to stay. But what sort of place should you pick? There are plenty of options to choose from; Los Angeles is a major city, and you’ll be able to find most national hotel chains within a reasonable distance to any areas you’ll need to regularly access. There’s also the possibility of picking a sublet being rented out as an AirBnB or through a similar service.

There are a variety of issues you may run into with either of these options, though. If you’re considering a hotel room for your stay, you’ll find in many cases that it’s a fairly impersonal temporary living situation that’s either rich in amenities (but prohibitively expensive), or very bare-bones and minimalistic (but cheap). In the case of a sublet, you may still face a fairly expensive situation, but with fewer amenities and less assurance of cleanliness and maintenance protocols.

What if there were an option that could give you the right balance between all of these possibilities? With fully furnished apartments in Los Angeles, you have access to the best of all these worlds, assuming you’re choosing yours the right way. In this blog post, we’ll run through everything you need to look for in a furnished short-term rental, including the apartment’s location, building amenities, and maintenance.

What location are you looking to stay in?

Location is important under any circumstance, but it may be more or less so depending on the nature of your visit to Los Angeles. Are you here on business? You may want to ensure that the apartment you’re staying in is located close to your temporary workplace, as well as any stores you’ll need to visit to keep yourself stocked with food and other supplies. Are you on vacation? Make sure you have convenient access to local tourist attractions and essential services.

This may also be an important factor depending on the amenities available with the rental. If, for example, keeping up with your physical fitness is important to you, but a gym isn’t located within the same building as your apartment, you should make sure there’s one located close by (ideally within walking distance). It also can’t be overstated that drug stores, grocery stores, and medical services should all be within a convenient distance to take care of essential needs.

What amenities are you looking for during your stay?

Jumping off of some of what was covered in the previous point, you should consider early on what kinds of amenities you’re looking for during your stay. The amenities that matter most won’t be the same for everyone, and not all will necessarily matter much for your stay; it’s up to you to determine what you’re likely to make the most use of (or have the most need of) given the circumstances of your stay.

If you’ll be spending much of your time in the apartment, high-speed internet, a kitchen full of appliances like an oven, coffee-maker, and microwave, and comfortable furniture is an absolute must. Smart TVs, on the other hand, may not be as much of an essential need in your case (though, of course, they’re always a welcome addition to any stay).

How clean and well-maintained are the apartments?

One of the most important things to know about your rental ahead of time is how comprehensive of a cleaning protocol the owners of the apartment follow. Meticulous cleaning before your stay and housekeeping services throughout the week should be available to you, no matter what location you choose.
