If your business requires you to travel regularly and you’re often travelling with a group, costs can add up very quickly. While hotels were seen as the first best option for a while, serviced apartments are beginning to give them a run for their money. Serviced apartments combine some of the best aspects of hotel living with the liberties of private apartments, which explains why they’re growing in popularity with the business crowd. Here are three reasons why you should consider booking a serviced apartment on your next business trip.
One of the biggest benefits of booking serviced apartments is the amount of money you’ll be able to save. For one, you’ll be able to get a much higher standard of acommodation when compared with a hotel room of the same price. You’ll also be able to save in a number of other ways.
You won’t have to spend as much money in food, for instance, as a large number of serviced apartments allow you to store and cook your own food. You won’t have to spend as much money on business diners either, as you’ll be able to hold them in your apartment. And, you won’t be as tempted to spend on entertainment as you’ll be more inclined to stay in when you’re in an apartment vs a hotel room.
Serviced apartments can range from bare bones to posh apartments with concierge, room service, and tons of other perks you’d find at any fine hotels. For instance, Dream Apartments, which are operated by Tom Smyth Belfast, just launched a 1.7m serviced apartment in the middle of the city which will offer concierge and full housekeeping service, state of the art multimedia, and luxurious contemporary design.
Not only that, but serviced apartments are usually located in some of the best parts of town. Most will be located near business or entertainment districts which not only facilitates logistics, but is great if you want to treat yourself, members of your team, or entertain business partners.
Serviced apartments are also a better option if you want to actually get work done. Cramped hotel rooms are not ideal if you’re trying to work alone or as a team. But in a serviced apartment, team members can work in pairs or individually when needed, and regroup fast without hassle.
Serviced apartments are also ideal if you need to hold important meetings or make presentations. If you need extra space, you’ll have no trouble finding serviced apartments with two or three bedrooms, which will allow everyone to have their privacy while still being able to get in touch with other members easily.
These are just some of the reasons why you should consider opting for a serviced apartment next time you’re out on business. Make sure that you work with a reputable provider, and don’t be afraid to explore your options until you find the right space for you and your team.
