Location, Location , Location !
This is probably one of the most important factors. It includes the availability of transportation, which becomes important once you are in an unfamiliar environment. Kharkiv has a superb Metro system, and now the signs are written in English as well. There is an excellent English speaking Taxi company "Yellow Taxi" . They have a fleet of new Cabs and the manager speaks English.
High prices don’t always mean the best quality, and vice versa. Ideally, the price should match the quality, which is true for Kharkov apartments for rent whose business is one of the longest standing apartment rental companies is Kharkov and who are apartment owners, not just an agent.
Sometimes you may still come across an unscrupulous apartment agencies who raises the prices twofold, sometimes threefold. These are not apartment owners , they work on a commission and always charge higher prices than when you deal with the owners direct in Kharkov.
Daily apartment rentals Kharkov imply that your place will be equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. You should check if the apartment for rent has bed sheets and towels, various household appliances (fan, iron, air conditioner), kitchen appliances.
In Kharkov, you’ll often be able to rent an apartment the same day you need to move in, but the selection of available short term apartments to rent might be very limited. It is better to reserve the place you like in advance. It is important to remember that the most popular apartments in Kharkov often get rented first.
Be prepared to pay a reservation deposit. There are many ways to pay this , Paypal , Bank Transfer , Western Union etc. Many companies will also take cash on arrival for the final balance payment , so that way you can check the quality of the apartment when you arrive.
Here safety refers to the reliability of the chosen renter. How long has this rental company/person been in rental business? Have previous tenants left any reviews on the company’s website? Is this apartment being rented out by a company or by an independent owner? Does this company or a person have a blog or a forum? TripAdvisor and similar websites often have details of the most popular apartments in Ukraine.
Is there paperwork for business trip arrangements? (This is important not for everyone, but still…)
By dealing with an official company that means that they are a reputable business. It is always also a good idea to deal with a company that has an office and show their landline phone number , not just a mobile number. So then you know that you can visit their office should you need to. Too many agencies just work from home with mobile phone numbers and that means if something goes wrong or you need to complain, they can just disappear. Join my circles on G+
