The awareness of serviced apartments is growing amongst those on business travel assignments. This type of accommodation comes fully furnished and ranges in size from a cosy studio to larger three bedroom ones as well as more luxurious penthouse apartment options. Most apartments include a fully furnished kitchen or kitchenette, living room, dining area and bathroom. A number of services and amenities are included.
An advantage to staying in this type of accommodation is that they provide a feeling of being at home, making it more comfortable for those on business travel. They offer more freedom and comfort, and are also less expensive than hotels of equivalent standard for long or short-term stays.
Many corporations are switching to serviced apartments to house employees on international assignments to cities because of the benefits they provide in terms of cost and employee satisfaction. Leisure travellers are also taking advantage of the availability of serviced apartments as not only do they offer financial savings, freedom and privacy, they also offer amenities and services that exceed those offered by hotels.
For those on longer-term business assignments and accompanied by their family, they can continue to enjoy the independence of home living because all apartments are fully furnished and equipped with all the day-to-day appliances we are accustomed to. Eating hotel food, eating out in restaurants, or ordering takeaways may be a novelty initially but there will come a point when you crave home-cooked food for the sake of both taste buds and waistline. Kitchens have all the facilities needed to prepare a home cooked meal. Apartments are also equipped with appliances like home entertainment systems, central heating, washing machine, iron/ironing board, toaster, oven and microwave. These facilities all ensure a comfortable stay.
All apartments have their own, independent and reliable Internet broadband connection to ensure that guests can always get online and enjoy a speedy service.
Facilities and services include secure covered parking, weekly housekeeping and fresh linen. The majority of serviced apartments are located in city centres with a host of shopping, sporting and entertainment conveniences within walking distance or short taxi, car or bus journey. They are close to business districts; public transport links including the main train station-linking to other main cities.
Safety and privacy are important issues for any traveller. Like hotels, 24-hour security is provided within all apartment complexes.
Although cost is generally a driving factor, the amenities offered are an important aspect as to why many are switching from hotels to serviced apartments. These apartments are no longer substandard lodgings, but have surpassed hotel rooms in terms of the amenities and services offered. They provide a pleasant, practical and safe living environment for business and leisure travellers.
