Serviced apartments are growing in popularity and they provide a sound alternative to hotels. There are serviced apartments in cities around the globe all offering a top quality accommodation option for travellers who want an alternative to hotels. Edinburgh serviced apartments allow visitors to enjoy the city at their own pace and enjoy the comfort of their own private home whilst they’re in the city. Below are our top reasons for believing staying in a serviced apartment and the benefits you’ll get.
If you’re visiting Edinburgh for a while then you may want a little more space than just a hotel room. A serviced apartment has so much more space to be comfortable and spread out belongings and simply relax as if you’re at home. With living and dining areas as well as the bed it means time can be spent in the apartment outside of just sleeping, if you fancy spending a night or two in. This is particularly valuable for business travellers who may want to work in their hotel room but find it hard to when cooped up.
Whether you’re taking your close family or even going away with friends opting to stay in a serviced apartment is ideal. Rather than worrying about your party being split up into separate rooms of a hotel or finding a communal place you can spend time together the apartment serves perfectly. It’s also a sensible option for families travelling with young children as they can be put to bed early and the lounge area of the apartment can still be used, rather than everyone having to have an early night.
Still get the Perks
Many serviced apartment buildings may not seem much like a hotel but when you dig a little deeper there may be many of the facilities you’d usually expect. From satellite television to free Wi-Fi you can usually be sure your apartment has all of what are now considered basic accommodation needs.
Not everyone wants to cook on their holidays or business trips but the convenience is something you’ll soon see the benefits of. Keep cold drinks in the fridge, buy in a few bits and bobs so if you’re peckish at midnight you don’t have to go out. Rather than dipping into the pricey mini bar you can enjoy the normally priced items you’ve brought yourself. If you do fancy cooking then everything you need is there ready for you.
In many instances serviced apartments end up more affordable than regular hotel rooms. This is particularly true if you have a large group or young children. You will find many different price points for apartments and though they are often chosen by people who want to spend a little longer than average in the city many can still be booked for shorter periods. Opting to spend your time in the city in a serviced apartment is always a positive decision. It can give you more freedom to enjoy a holiday or the workspace you need as a business visitor.
