How much would a temporary accommodation typically cost?

How much would a temporary accommodation typically cost in and around Baden? It is for a single person (male if that makes any difference!) and needed from 1st December. I found the hotels to be pretty expensive (by american standards) but maybe reasonable by Swiss standards. I want to know the typical costs for a temp accommodation (1-3 months - hopefully we find an apartment in that time) and waht facilities will be included for that cost? (Like microwave or use of kitchen, laundry, internet etc).

In Zurich my mother in law paid around Chf 1,000 for a sub-rented flat (probably less than 40 sqm, but nice) for one month. You can have look on homegate.ch. Sometimes there are short period rented flats.

Re: How much would a temporary accommodation typically cost?

When you find somewhere you will need to ask about the use of the washing machine. Internet, have found many Swiss reluctant to give you access, and as you will need to rent a phone line long term, would suggest you initially use a dongle until you settle somewhere long-term.
If you have a car you will also need to ask about a parking space, it may be included or you may have to pay, but more than likely you will need a parking space for your car.

Re: How much would a temporary accommodation typically cost?

Thank you for the replies! Where would one typically look for temp accommodation? In the US, there are lot of serviced apartments which are reasonable plus one could look at craigslist for temp accommodation/sublets. Is homegate.ch the only place to look for or are there other places where it will be listed?

well you could go completely crazy and have a look where, at the top of the Housing in General section, it says
FAQs - you SURE your question/problem/requirement is unique? Look here before asking
and see what pearls of wisdom are hiding in there.
