The Benefits of a Serviced Apartment

If you are a frequent traveller, then you might already know that sometimes holiday accommodation can be a little disappointing. These days, booking accommodation online is so easy that people do it a click of a button, without really thinking about what they are booking. This is fine at the time, until you actually travel and have to stay there - only to find out that it doesn't match your expectations.

The best piece of advice that can be given when it comes to booking holiday accommodation is to research where you are booking and take your time. However long you are staying for you'll be spending a lot of time in your holiday accommodation - so you'll want it to be right. You need to think about what is going to suit you best and your needs - do you want a cheap bed and breakfast somewhere, a chain hotel or maybe even a serviced apartment? There are lots of choices and it is a matter of thinking about what you need and what accommodation type you think best suits this.

For many people a serviced apartment is perfect, just because it offers so much! With an apartment you get a unit all to yourself which has more than just a bedroom and bathroom like you would expect in a hotel. Holiday apartments like this are often described as a home away from home because they are some comfortable and nice to stay in.


For many people staying in a serviced apartment us much more convenient than a hotel room. For starters you get so much more space, which is great if you have a few of you who want to stay in the same place. Of course you also get things like extra storage and proper kitchen facilities which many people say they miss when they are staying in a basic hotel room.

In most serviced apartments you get a proper living area  - this means that you have somewhere properly to sit and relax without having to be perched on your bed, like you would be if you were staying in a hotel.

In an apartment you'll get a kitchen fully fitted with appliance and kitchenware. This means that you can actually prepare your own meals and sit and eat properly, unlike in a hotel where you constantly have to think about where you are going to stay. Even small things like being able to have a few items in the fridge in case you need them can make all the difference.


As an apartment feels so much more like home you'll probably feel much more relaxed and comfortable staying here. With a proper sofa to sit on for example you can actually sit and relax properly which is a luxury you don't often get in a hotel.


One of the greatest things about an apartment like this is the space you have available - you can even book an apartment with extra bedrooms if you want a few of you to stay over. This allows you to put your things away properly and actually feel like you have unpacked, rather than being cramped into a small hotel room and living out of a suitcase.
