Don't worry about these worrywarts with the apartment. If your friends have stayed there before, I doubt they will scam you. But remember, pay for everything with a credit card.

Sponky. Glad you had a good trip. That doesn't remove the fact that what you did had a harmful affect on local residents by taking apartments intended for long term use by residents off the market, and making the local housing shortage worse.

If people don't look into the laws and customs in the places that they're traveling before they travel, then there's not much that anyone can do to force them to be aware of such things.

When you pay for accommodation before researching it, then you'll be left with few options. It's possible that it was legal; I offered to look it up for you when you first asked about the area. I'd be glad to look it up for you now if you'd like to know whether you can recommend it to others with a clear conscience.

BobbyC, that post was completely inappropriate and offensive.

OP - I'm glad you had a good time in our city. Private apartment rentals are usually okay (look at AirBNB, every single one is "illegal"), and especially since your friends stayed there I was sure it'd be fine. The area is great and I hope you come back.
