Accommodation in Warsaw

While there are many options when it comes to accommodation in Warsaw, the task of finding a home can be complicated by the high demand and stiff competition for housing in the city.

Types of accommodation in Warsaw

Expats looking for accommodation in Warsaw will find various options suited to any budget and lifestyle. These range from Soviet-style apartment buildings to modern penthouse apartments, mostly in the city centre. Freestanding homes with gardens or duplexes and semi-detached houses can be found in the more suburban outlying areas.

Both furnished and unfurnished accommodation is available in Warsaw, although unfurnished options are more common. Appliances such as a stove, fridge and dishwasher are often supplied.

Finding accommodation in Warsaw

Expats looking for housing in Warsaw can find property listings online; however, those unable to speak Polish should consider working through a reputable real estate agent. 

Renting accommodation in Warsaw

Rental agreements are usually flexible and agreed upon between the tenant and landlord. A deposit of one to three months' rent is often required, while some landlords may expect six months' rental upfront.

Utilities such as gas, water and electricity are not usually included in the rental cost and are paid for by tenants. Additional expenses may also include general maintenance costs for the building such as cleaning and gardening.
