Regardless of whether you are away for one night or for several, you want to be as comfortable as you would be in your own home. Work or pleasure can mean you need somewhere to stay, and the most obvious first thought is to book into a hotel. Are they the best for you though? There are other options, with just one of them being to rent a serviced apartment, and here are some of the reasons why you will be glad it was the choice you made.
Fewer Restrictions and Family Friendly
Serviced apartments do not have the time restriction attached to many hotels. You will not have to be ready for your breakfast between 7am and 8am, or make sure you have returned by 8pm to be able to get an evening meal. You will have the freedom to come and go as you please, which can be especially useful if you have children with you.
What’s more, if you rent your spacious one, two or three bedroomed apartment from a provider like Dream Apartments, you will have high-speed internet access at all times and the use of a Smart TV. This can be good if you are there as a family, particularly if you happen to get a downpour of rain.
Your Own Facilities
It can be a nuisance in a hotel if you need some laundry done and they take two days to get it back to you. Or it could be that one of your party is a picky eater and you prefer to prepare their food for them. Whatever the situation, in serviced apartments you will have an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher at least in the kitchen which will all be of the finest quality. There are also simple facilities that none of us can do without, such as things for making tea and coffee or a quick snack.
The apartment will also have a washer and dryer, so if you need something for the next day you will be able to wash and dry it ready. Some apartments have even more facilities for you to choose from, such as extra beds, daily housekeeping and concierge services.
Serviced apartments are more private than staying in a hotel. Once you shut the front door, it is your haven for the length of your stay. You will not be squashed into a space that has to serve as a living room and bedroom while there are people coming and going along the corridors outside your door at all hours.
By the same token, it means that you do not have to worry that you will disturb other guests if your child is crying in the night, for instance.
Studies have shown that people who stay in apartments rather than hotels are more relaxed when they are away from home, and it appears this is even more so in serviced apartments. This is because you can shut the door and be yourself. Eat what you want when you want, get up at lunchtime if that is what you want to do, and enjoy many other things which would all be more difficult in a hotel.
