Here are 5 reasons to consider staying in a serviced apartment on your next long term trip instead of a hotel:
You save money because you can provide your own service. From gratuities for services received at a hotel to the cost of dining out every night, it doesn't take long for those additional costs to add up. With a serviced apartment, you get everything that you would normally get at home. That includes a full kitchen that allows you to make your own meals! This can help save a traveler several hundred dollars over the span of a long term accommodation.
You receive lower overall rates on a long term stay. The longer your trip happens to be, the more money that you'll generally save by staying at a serviced apartment. Hotels offer you a one sized fits all rate that isn't based on your length of stay, but is instead based on whatever day of the week it happens to be. You also don't have to worry about how many people are staying with you – a serviced apartment has the same rates for 1 person or your entire family.
You receive more overall living space. The average hotel room has a bathroom and a bedroom. Many offer small appliances to help supplement your stay, but you must purchase an upgrade room, such as a suite, to get any additional living space. Even a simple 1 bedroom serviced apartment offers a living room, a separate bedroom, a kitchen, and a full bathroom. This allows you to better separate your relaxation space from your work space!
You receive more privacy. A serviced apartment is just like staying at home. You'll have a few neighbors, but you won't have the sheer number of guests and the hustle and bustle that servicing those guests requires surrounding you. You can often wash your own clothes, cook your own meals, and keep to yourself. If you want to get to know your neighbors, that's something you can do as well!
You receive an equal level of service. The only real difference you'll notice between a serviced apartment and a hotel in terms of service is that there isn't any room service and there isn't an attached restaurant. Otherwise you'll receive full housekeeping services and have a proper level of security protecting you. Many serviced apartments also offer swimming pools, workout areas, and business centres.
