I’ve been lucky, these past few months, to travel frequently and visit some wonderful places. This is the case of my recent journey to Zurich that convinced me to always opt for a stay in an apartment, instead of a hotel. For most people in search of mid-range accommodation for their vacation, the first and only option that comes to mind is a hotel. There is however an alternative that not only works out cheaper but has better amenities to boot: serviced apartments. For those who aren’t familiar to this, a serviced apartment is basically an apartment that’s fully furnished and offers the privacy and comforts of home, but is run as a hotel, with housekeeping staff that “service” the apartment. However, contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be staying in a city for a long time to rent one of these apartments. Thus, if you’re looking for independence, flexibility and don’t have to sacrifice any amenities while on the go, consider bellow these few benefits of staying in a serviced apartment as I did with Vision Apartments.
Think about the price first ! Indeed, serviced apartments will often work out cheaper than an equivalent hotel, and while some will require you to book for a month or a week to get a good deal, others still offer great rates for a stay of just a few nights. Therefore, if you are done with hotels repetitive menu, and got a tight budget, you can just opt for cooking by yourself. The fact that you can cook your own meals can help you save even more money. In term of space, if you’re particularly staying in the same city for a long period of time or if you’re on a long business trip and just need to unwind someplace “homey” after a day of work, confined to a small bedroom,can definitely make you going stir crazy. Serviced apartments will generally have a separate living, dining area and even more living spaces if you choose an “executive” or “premier” apartment.
Last but not least, the feeling of being at home is indispensable. You can’t disagree when you go to a place that gives you all the comfort you may enjoy las if you were at your own home. Although, serviced apartments is not a new concept, it has become more popular for business and leisure travelers. Plus, whether you look at it from a financial perspective or you prize your privacy and comfort, there are many advantages that make choosing serviced apartments for extended stays worthwhile.
