Rent a room in European big cities

Updated on April 29, 2015

Nobody likes to be outcast. It's just after the commencement of time that you can see people renting. A not-to-forget part of real estate agents income is based on rent. Considering the value of the subject we should say renting is an art. And I did some valuations about it. Surprise: Hostels seem to be the most expensive places to stay when based on a per meters square expenditure. The index SpacePerPersonPrice (SPPP) goes down to the half in hotelrooms, that definitely are not cheaper, but more, more spacious. In those places your SPPP and your quality/price proportion (QPP) goes strongly up. And what about room 'for rent' in private houses, like CouchSurfing and AirBNB? There is a whole world that opens to you when entering such situations. Regional and local authorities can profit from growing use of the sharing-industry with 'room-taxation', 'tourist-taxation', 'hotel-taxes' and such instruments. Off course there you can make your best deals without paying tax at all.

      ...An academic walking through Lisbon seaside must be something wonderful, but never experienced actually.

      So let's go to Lisboa ! Bucharest doesn't seem to have the best climate for academic walking by the sea-shore.

      Lisboa prices seem at one of the lowest level http://www.spru.pt/residence.cfm?smid=4&langID... while London is probably on top http://www.theguardian.com/money/2014/sep/05/stude... : in Bucharest you still can find a studio at 300 / euro per month
