When traveling on a business trip, a vacation, or a family trip, you have the choice of booking into a hotel or going for a serviced apartment. Whereas both are very viable accommodation options, you may need to give more consideration to the serviced apartments’ option. Below are the reasons why.
Why Opt For A Serviced Apartment?
- More space and comfort
Serviced apartments have twice as much space as their equivalent in a hotel room. Regardless of whether you go for a 4 bedroom house or a studio apartment, each will come with a separate kitchen, bedrooms, and a fully equipped working/living area. You will, therefore, have more room that is very comfortable and accommodating for you during your business venture.
- Cost-effective accommodation
When compared to hotel reservations, apartments offer more value for your money. They also do not come with hidden costs like the room service and drinks from the bar charges. To add on to this, they come ready with internet access. This makes them very ideal for the business traveler.
Since one hires such an apartment for a number of days, you also enjoy reduced prices per night. You can also avoid the boardroom renting costs by simply organizing to meet your clients and business partners within the same apartment. This translates to more cost savings and value for your money.
With an apartment, you can enjoy your own specially made home-cooked meals. You can also hire a chef to cook for you within your apartment. When you want to, you can also go out for a meal. This gives you a choice and the independence that any traveler really needs. This is unlike a hotel room where you have to always eat out or go with the rigid menu items offered by your hotel. Such an apartment is like an extension of your home; a home away from home.
A serviced apartment comes with quality and high standard furnishing. You also get modern kitchen facilities, a well-organized living area, quality towels and toiletries, a first class entertainment facility and an awesome internet and communication system.
Basically, compared to a hotel room (and even your own home!), you get higher quality items and settings in a serviced apartment. Your living standard gets an upgrade, at least for the time you will be living in this apartment.
Serviced apartments offer a higher degree of privacy compared to hotel rooms. In an average apartment block, you may have about 30-50 apartments. This works out to about 100-150 people. A conventional hotel will have about 100-200 bedrooms. This works out to about 400-500 people when you combine the bedrooms occupants with the people in the public areas of the hotel.
