Apartments and condos are no go because short-term leases or leases to non-residents for that matter are illegal. A lot of condos, moreover, frown upon having long-term guests in their premises.

So, you're stuck with Serviced Apartments or hotels.

Also have a scout around on Tripadvisor.com

p.s. I second the advice that you need a Serviced Apartment or hotel
