3- You will have more space, since the apartments are bigger than the rooms of the hotels.
4- In case of rooms you will stay in a family house that will advise you of places to eat and places to visit. They will give you more information than a guide can give you when it comes to moving around the area.
5- More privacy since you can enjoy your vacation as if you were in your own home. Many of them have a kitchen if you want to prepare something or you can take pre-cooked food from any restaurant and have a lounge in case you want to sit and relax while watching TV or listen to music.
