What is a townhouse?

The name says it all – a townhouse is a home that is located in a town, which often has several floors. Townhouses have multiple rooms, lounge spaces, and a kitchen, making them the perfect set-up for a family or group visiting the city. And that's not even mentioning the charming character and style that come when you factor in listed townhouses or historic homes (which are ideal for weddings).

Why should I stay at a townhouse?

From western Europe to the US, townhouses continue to offer a convenient and characterful option for travelers. You should consider staying in this sort of accommodation if you want multiple bedrooms to host the whole family, if you prefer staying in quieter, less-popular, parts of a destination, enjoy cooking for yourself, or perhaps want to bring the 4-legged friends along for the ride.


Where do you find townhouses?

From the Philippines to wave-washed Maui, you can find townhouses in destinations all over the globe. Because they are such a home away from home, they are commonly placed in suburbs, in a local estate, or in residential districts. Take the townhouses in Hoboken, or the enchanting small-town stays of the Hudson Valley, which offer something a little different – and quieter – to travelers looking to explore bustling New York City.


How much does it cost to stay in a townhouse?

Rates for townhouses vary immensely across the globe. They go from cheap bargains in quiet fishing villages to cool new builds in happening cityscapes that cost thousands a night. Just bear in mind that these sorts of accommodations often have enough rooms for a whole party, which should help reduce the cost per person for the cumulative vacation.

How to book a townhouse

You can rent a townhouse in just the same way you go about booking a normal hotel, all thanks to Expedia's accommodation search. Whether it's a fly-in city break or an extended stay, just enter the travel dates and destination you want. Another top tip is to bundle those beds with flights and car rental, which can knock off oodles from the total cost of the vacation.


What do townhouses offer?

Townhouses offer all sorts of things. Some are no-frills, multi-bedroom homes that can make hosting the whole family in London or LA somewhat inexpensive. Others are listed historic buildings, elegant and stylish, and perfect for hosting a wedding or other important reunion. Some sport stylish self-catering kitchens, fancy salons, and even gardens. And there are plenty of townhouse stays that are pet-friendly, letting you bring the dogs along for the adventure.


Townhouses vs apartments

You might ask what the difference is between townhouses and apartments. Both offer somewhere more local, spacious, and home-like than your classic motel, inn, or hotel. However, there are some features that are different. Townhouses tend to be larger, and regularly have gardens or patios in addition to multiple floors. Apartments can often be found crammed into bustling downtowns, while townhouses pepper the more peaceful outskirts, close to a park or a lake or more off-the-beaten-track cafes and shops.
