Homelike starts with 1,000 apartments in Amsterdam

  • As of today, Homelike offers 1,000 furnished apartments for a minimum stay of 30 days for short-term rent in Amsterdam, followed by Rotterdam and other cities in the Netherlands
  • "Finding an apartment in Amsterdam is very difficult. With our service, we make it easier for our business partners to send employees to the Netherlands."
Homelike, Europe's leading B2B booking platform for furnished apartments is further expanding its strong market position in Europe. From December 12, 2018, 1,000 apartments for business travelers and companies from around the world can be booked on Homelike in Amsterdam, the third most important business travel destination in Europe according to BCD Travel. Succeeding Amsterdam, Homelike is starting to offer apartments in Rotterdam and other cities in the Benelux region as part of the ongoing internationalization."We are very excited to offer furnished apartments also in Amsterdam where many large companies are based. Amsterdam is an international melting pot and companies were frequently asking us if we can support them in finding business accommodation for their employees on assignments or relocations. Finding a reasonably priced and comfortable ‘home away from home’ from abroad is very difficult because of highly fragmented apartment offerings. Therefore, Amsterdam was the next logical step for us as part of our European expansion strategy, " says Dustin Figge, CEO and Founder of Homelike.
