How are Serviced Apartments different from Hotels?
Serviced apartments are emerging as the most trendy place to stay for both corporate and leisure travellers today. It is a rental facility, like a hotel, where you can stay for a few days or a few weeks depending on the nature and purpose of your visit.
When planning a vacation or business trip, one may automatically think of taking his/her family (or just yourself) and checking into a luxury hotel.With so many holiday packages out there, it’s easy to get sucked into that frame of thinking.And in the long run, one can often get the best vacation deals by going that way. Still, there are other lodging options one might wish to explore.
What Serviced Apartments offer different from hotels:
- More space (square meters, full size kitchen, multiple rooms):
Serviced apartments are more spacious allowing you to literally spread yourself all over the place. The second most important difference between a serviced apartment and a hotel is that you can cook your own food in a serviced apartment whenever you choose to do so. This major advantage is specially a plus for those guests who have special dietary needs as well as those who have very small children.
- More privacy:
Sometimes, your business trip may include some securing business documents. Though hotels also provide security to store the documents, you have to rely on the hotel staff regarding the same. On the contrary, if you choose to stay in the serviced apartment, you can ensure that you have provided enough security to your documents by locking them in safe place. It is in fact the safest place to carry your business activities in the new location because there will be no number of people roaming around your room
- All-inclusive rates (relatively low compared to hotel rates):
Serviced apartments are usually 30% to 35% less expensive when you compare them to hotels. This is because the pricing structure at serviced apartments is predicated on longer duration stays thus resulting in significantly higher occupancy ratios.
- Both short-term and long-term lengths of stay possible:
Perhaps the major difference in prices comes when you consider the length of stay. If for instance you are to stay within a temporary location for a few months or nights, it will be clear to see how the price of a hotel’s stay may add up. Serviced apartments on the other hand, come with flexible price ranges, and they too will depend on the length of your stay, but are negotiable to fit budgets. And service apartments can even be better if you are to book as a group because you get to share costs as you enjoy the comfort of a home away from home. You have the ability to prepare your own meals and although this may sound small, it is a major cost benefit.
