I am new in town. I found a nice place but unfortunately I will get the keys about January 1st.
So I am looking for a 2 bedrooms apartment for about 2-3 weeks and it seems quite challenging to find short term accommodation.
Anybody knows a nice place that could be rented on a weekly basis?
Thanks for your answers

For two to three weeks your going to have to hotel it. Nobody would rent for that short of a period.

I am also in a situation where I need housing for 2 weeks. Would it be possible to make a deal with a hotel for a discounted rate for a longer stay? Does anyone have experience with this? Any suggestions?

Yes it's really easy to negotiate a deal with hotels in the old quarter for a discounted rate. We stayed in this one for 3 weeks with a baby and it was fine. I think we got about a 20% discount.

The only problem was they turned the power off every time we left the room which was annoying because I was keeping baby food in the fridge.

A couple of places have opened up in Tay Ho which weren't here when we moved to Hanoi and look like a great option, depending on where you want to stay:
