Different situations can require your employee to rent a furnished apartment in Berlin for some time: For example, visa and residence application, as well as insurance companies and banks will require a registered physical address in Berlin. It can also be easier to find an apartment for long term rent in Berlin, if your employee is already living in Berlin. And, of course, interim housing in a furnished apartment is also an option for employees relocating to Berlin from overseas and having to wait for their freight with furniture and other household goods to arrive. Last but not least, it is a good way to get to know Berlin and its districts before making the final step.
What to keep in mind when renting furnished apartments in Berlin
First of all it is important to note that moving to a furnished apartment usually requires less documents than moving into a regular apartment. It is important to know, though, that not all furnished apartments in Berlin are technically „legal“. This means that you cannot use the address for registering with the authorities. This can be the case if the apartment is sublet without the knowledge of the landlord or if local regulations do not allow this type of use for the apartment.
There are two types of furnished apartments available in Berlin:
- Boarding houses/Apartment hotels: Serviced apartments with an own kitchen, used for short stays
- Furnished Apartments: Regular apartments, fully furnished and also suitable for a longer stay
