When it comes to finding an accommodation for a short or long stay, there are a wide range of options available to choose from,though the most preferred options include hotels and the serviced apartments. Both of these accommodations are unique in their own way. Serviced apartments are already popular in the business world, but leisure travellers are catching on to the advantages of short-term serviced accommodation too.
Serviced apartments are also a solution for expat families needing temporary accommodation. Self-contained and fully furnished, serviced apartments are designed for short, medium or long term stays with all the facilities and fittings. They include many features that one would typically associate with a hotel, such as daily linen service, maid service, 24 hour porterage, swimming pools, fitness centers. The serviced apartments combine features from traditional hotels with the features from home, making them suitable for all travelers.
1. Spacious Accommodation – On average a serviced apartment provides up to twice as much space as an equivalent standard of hotel room. Unlike hotel rooms which have a bedroom and bathroom (unless it is an expensive suite!) serviced apartments have a number of rooms. Whether the choice is a studio or a 2 -3 bedroom apartment, it offers a separate kitchen, a well equipped living/working area and bedroom/s. As a result, serviced apartments have a lot more space.
2. High Quality – Serviced apartments offer a high standard of contemporary furnishings and everything you would expect of a hotel room and more: ▪Fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher & washer/dryer), ▪High quality bed linen, towels, and toiletries ▪Home entertainment facilities – Cable TV, DVD, CD and other in-room technology.
3. Home away from home – The main benefit of staying in serviced apartments is that you have all the comfort of a home as opposite to the typical hotel room experience.In serviced apartments you enjoy the flexibility of being able to choose to eat in from time to time; whether it be employing a chef to host a dinner party in the apartment, or relaxing on your own with a home-cooked meal. You can cook up your favorite dishes without any problems and also cater for any specific dietary requirements of you or your family members and avoid the stress of finding a suitable place to eat out. Business travellers in particular can spend several weeks or months away from home and have a home environment offering maximum flexibility and independence. Like being at home, cook what you like, play a DVD, listen to music or invite friends around and entertain – the choice is yours.
4. More cost effective – Staying in a hotel can be expensive, not just because of the actual accommodation cost but also because of all the meals that one has to eat out. Staying in a Serviced Apartment can help keep your spending down. Not only are they cheaper than hotel accommodation, but you can also cook your own food which means that you do not have to rely on restaurants. For a family on vacation, costs saved on eating out for every meal are substantial. In all cases, every coffee, juice or beer would cost far less than in the apartment than it would in a restaurant. Not eating out when you do not have to can offer a significant cost saving. Also hotels charge for single or double occupancy, whereas apartments only charge per apartment, so if you booked a one bedroom apartment which can accommodate up to 2 people, you pay the same whether it is for 1 person or 2 persons. Colleagues or family groups sharing a two or three-bedroom apartment with en-suite facilities do not sacrifice their privacy, but the total bill for two weeks will be dramatically less than two or three hotel rooms for the same period. In addition, serviced apartments often offer an additional pullout bed in the living area to put up the occasional guest as required, incurring no extra cost as is the case in a hotel.
