Serviced Apartments can make the ideal accommodation
It can be confusing with so many different types of apartments out there and even more confusing when there are so many agents and providers. How do you choose the right apartment for you ?
We have put together some tips on just what you should consider before you choose your serviced apartments.
1. Type of Apartment
Serviced apartments range from hotel-style rooms with kitchenettes to luxury penthouse apartments. Most apartments are furnished with contemporary interiors and offer a separate living and dining area ( except for some studios ) with cutlery & crockery as well as fresh linen & towels. Depending on how many people are travelling in your party, you can opt for a studio, one, two, three bedroom or four bedroom apartment and choose to add extra beds (in some apartments).
Serviced Apartments are normally located in very convenient areas, close to public transport, airports or main city centres making it easy for guests to commute, sightsee, work and enjoy the city. Choose an apartment according to your purpose of visit and think about your requirements when travelling.
3. Facilities and Services
Serviced apartments can offer a wide range of facilities and services like 24 hour reception, concierge, gym, free internet, telephone, dishwasher, laundry, parking, daily maid service, restaurant/bar and many more. Decide what services are most important to you and choose your apartment accordingly.
Visiting a new place can be exciting, but it's important to take the necessary precautions for one's personal safety. Most serviced apartments offer 24hour security and/or CCTV and some have a 24hr Reception/Concierge to assist you with anything you may need during your visit. Make sure you research the local area, emergency medical services and facilities like safes and deposit boxes for your own knowledge.
As serviced apartments come in all shapes and sizes, the price can vary depending on their location, facilities and season of travel. If you are on a budget, then consider travelling off peak times and avoid major event dates like Christmas, Bank Holidays, Shows & Festivals. If you are travelling on business, then try and choose an apartment near your place of work to save you time and money. Serviced Apartments with hotel style features can be more expensive than those without.
Taking all these facts into account, it is almost impossible to not find something that fits the bill however you do want to consider the following before you hand over you credit card details. Booking an apartment is exactly the same as a hotel and most agents/apartments spell out the terms and conditions for you or send them in a confirmation email, but in case they miss out any details we have put together some important questions for you to ask.
What are the Check-in / Check-out procedures & timings ?
What are the payment procedures /deposits ?
What is the cancellation policy ?
Which apartment will I be allocated i.e which floor, SqFt, Lifts ?
Is there any onsite staff if I have a problem ?
How do I extend my stay ?
