Serviced apartments are becoming more and more popular both overseas and here in the UK. This begs the question “Why do people use serviced apartments”?
It doesn’t matter if your trip is for business or pleasure, a serviced apartment can cater for both types of stay. You may wish to entertain clients during your visit and would appreciate the extra space afforded to you. Who wants to hold a meeting sitting on a hotel bed? On the other hand it may be that you are travelling as a family group and would like to spend the time together rather than be split up into separate rooms. In both instances the advantages of a serviced apartment are obvious.
It is often overlooked that a serviced apartment can be an equally attractive option even if you only wish to stay for a shorter period. Many people are now using serviced apartments for weekend breaks or even single night stays, especially if they intend to entertain during their time here. Of course, longer term stays are also available and these give the individual a chance to really settle in, just like having your own place in a different town.
Privacy plays a major part in a lot of people’s decision. Without the daily intrusion often incurred during a hotel stay, many find that they can relax better and treat the apartment as a home from home rather than just somewhere to lay their head.
However, possibly the most important factor is convenience. You can cook the meals that you want to eat, when you want to eat them. You can eat out if you wish, or order a takeaway, whatever you want to do. There really is no downside. So, next time you are looking to book into a hotel why not consider a serviced apartment instead? It could make your stay.
