Consider the amenities that you are presented with when you are booked into a hotel. Your room will have facilities for making a hot drink, may even contain a coffee machine and if you are lucky you will have a small mini bar style fridge that can hold a pint of milk. Book into an apartment however and you have the facilities of a full kitchen at your disposal including an oven and a microwave as well as a full sized fridge.
Corporate housing or corporate accommodation is defined as a fully furnished and equipped studio, one, two or three bedroom apartment. They are double the square footage of a hotel room and are a more cost effective accommodation alternative. This type of serviced accommodation is ideal for the business traveller needing long term stays but works equally well for stays from a couple of nights or more. It is also ideal for those relocating and requiring temporary furnished accommodation.
Corporate stay apartments are perfect for the travelling professional who wants the comfort of a home-away-from-home booking.
Consider what you are offered when booking into a hotel. You are likely to have facilities for making a hot beverage and perhaps even a small fridge with nibbles which, when removed are charged to our room bill at inflated prices. If, however you choose to book into an apartment, you will have a fully equipped kitchen available to you with a fridge stocked with a complimentary bottle of fresh milk rather than small packs of UHT milk hardly enough for two cups of tea. Pots, pans and an oven are at your disposal should you choose to prepare your own meal rather than being faced with night after night of having to eat out, thereby further increasing the cost of your stay.
The dining-room table can also double-up as a desk or meeting place with colleagues. Many apartments do have a desk available as a dedicated work space.
Corporate housing is also proving a solution for disillusioned homeowners who find it difficult to sell and buy in a housing-chain. But rather to sell then rent without any imposed contracts while looking to buy a new home. Staying in a serviced apartment in Milton Keynes, Northampton or Luton also means you don’t have to unpack all your furniture and appliance for the interim period.
Serviced apartments offer many conveniences for corporate stays as well as those looking for temporary accommodation.
