Accommodations can be one of the most important parts of your entire trip, as it is where you go to unwind, kick back and relax after a long day of sightseeing, beach-combing or whichever activity suits your fancy that day. In fact, you may be going over your options and considering a serviced apartment against a hotel for your stay.
But what exactly is a serviced apartment and why is it better to stay there than a hotel? Let’s go over the benefits of spending your holiday in a serviced apartment with family, on a business trip or cuddling up on a romantic vacation.
What is a serviced apartment?
Serviced apartments are fully furnished apartments with a well-equipped kitchen and other amenities you don’t see in hotels, such as a dishwasher and a washer and dryer system. Serviced apartments are also available for both short-term and long-term stays.
What is the difference between a hotel and a serviced apartment?
In general, hotels are lodging where you can quickly stay for a short period of time with basic amenities in your hotel room. Most hotel stays are just one room, whereas serviced apartments are multiple, for more space and comfort.
Benefits of a Serviced Apartment
There are many added benefits to choosing a serviced apartment for your next trip, such as:
Space is the most popular and obvious of the advantages of staying at a serviced apartment over a hotel room. On average, a serviced apartment offers holiday goers 30% more space on average than a hotel room. That means that as well as more space, you actually get to have separate rooms to sleep, eat and live, making your stay more relaxing and less cramped.
Instead of having to eat breakfast at a clunky desk that stares at the wall, you can sit at a kitchen table with the window open, blowing a gentle breeze while you eat your meal with your loved one(s.)
With more space, you may think a serviced apartment would cost more than a hotel room, but that is not the case for most places you can stay. Staying in a serviced apartment is cost effective since the amenities can save you time and money. It’s so much easier to be able to cook and do laundry on your own in the serviced apartment than having to find a place around the hotel or lug it down to their questionable laundry room, not to mention finding the coinage to pay.
Serviced apartments also give discounts for longer stays, whereas hotels would prefer a new guest to come in and pay the same rate, so they offer no such deals.
When you stay in a serviced apartment, you get more privacy than if you were at a hotel. The privacy you have in a serviced apartment is akin to that of your own home because you are able to kick back and relax like you would at home.
Hotels, on the contrary, offer limited privacy as people are checking in at the hotel at the same time and constantly moving in and out of rooms daily. You have housekeepers knocking on your door in the early hours and there is always someone in the hallway, elevator or around no matter what in hotels.
At serviced apartments, you have the same amount of privacy you would at home and are free to enjoy your vacation without being woken up by kids running in the hall or someone knocking on your door. You can also clean the place yourself or call for a cleaning when you are out and about for the day.
Accommodating More Guests
If you have a large group or family staying with you on vacation, you will have to book a whole extra hotel room because most hotels only allow 4 people in a room. This can add up quickly and become quite expensive.
With serviced apartments, you can choose the size of the apartment you stay in, from studio to up to three bedrooms in many places. That allows for your whole family to not only be able to stay with you but to stay comfortably.
