Serviced Apartment v’s Hotel AccommodationBack to categories

What are the benefits in staying in a serviced apartment v’s hotel accommodation?

✔ Privacy – Serviced Apartments can offer unrivalled privacy and a home from home setting in which you can relax and not feel that there are interruptions from staff or housekeeping.  Housekeeping services are usually provided on a weekly basis (in some instances more frequently), although if there is a need for additional services this can be arranged at any time during your stay rather than imposed. 

✔ Spacious Accommodation in abundance – Serviced Apartments usually provide up to twice the level of space when compared to similar category and style of hotel rooms.  Hotel rooms are usually equipped with a main room and separate bathroom.  Serviced Apartments can offer additional rooms (bedrooms – One bedroom +), living rooms, separate kitchens and in some properties / apartments dressing rooms, two or more bathrooms and office/working areas.  Studio apartments will usually offer larger living areas and the convenience of kitchen/kitchenette facilities.

✔ Cost Effective – Hotel accommodation can offer many additional services and facilities (some of which may be chargeable), which over a duration of stay can soon add up.  The benefits of a kitchenette or fully equipped kitchen can offer savings and convenience, while catering for family and friends or making a snack while working in the apartment.  The cost associated with eating out or buying food and drink day by day if you don’t have fridge/freezer or facilities to store them can be frustrating.    Business travellers in particular can find themselves staying for extended periods and expenses can be reduced by offering serviced accommodation, with free Wi-Fi included (for the majority of our properties).  Having an environment that offers flexibility and choice, allows you the opportunity to eat in, cater for friends, or dine at one of the many restaurants and eateries nearby.  Serviced Apartments can offer you that choice.

✔ Convenience and Comfort – Serviced Apartments can offer a wider selection of services than just accommodation.  A number of residences and Aparthotel providers have amenities and services that can rival the most well equipped 5* hotels.  Not only do the apartments offer restaurant services, but this may include, for selected properties: swimming pool, gym, squash courts, spa, champagne bars, private gardens, concierge, and 24 hour security.  On the flip side other serviced accommodation may offer self-contained locations which are not manned but provide a comfortable home from home experience.
