Savvy business travellers have been converted for a while but now even less seasoned travellers are realising the benefits of a serviced apartment when on company business. For starters, a luxury apartment is a much more pleasant environment in which to spend precious downtime than a soulless hotel room. For those who need to get back to the spreadsheets or sales charts after a hard day’s work, they can do so in comfort, knowing they won’t be disturbed. Alternatively for those who simply want to put their feet up and relax then a luxuriously appointed lounge complete with flat screen TV and Wi-Fi service is a great place to do so.
Even if it is on expenses, many business travellers find the novelty of eating out each night soon wears off – in a serviced apartment residents can prepare their own food or send out for a takeaway to enjoy in front of their favourite TV show. It really does feel like a “home from home”.
An apartment can work out far better value than a hotel room especially if it is rented for an extended period of time. Alternatively, if several colleagues are travelling together then sharing an apartment is not only a much cheaper option but also much more sociable. Separate bedrooms ensure privacy at night time but the shared living areas provide a social opportunity for those who want it.
On-site parking is an added bonus for busy execs making commuting from their temporary base a hassle-free experience.
