Whether you’re booking a city break, an exotic holiday, or a romantic getaway, the accommodation that you choose will make or break your experience. An otherwise lovely holiday can be ruined if you end up staying somewhere that’s dirty and run-down, while on the other hand, a luxurious, clean and well-furnished space can make your stay all the more enjoyable.
So, it’s no surprise that if you’re planning a future trip with a group of relatives or friends, where to stay is going to be a hot topic in your conversations – along with determining how close you’d like to be to main attractions, the beach or shopping centres and what kind of amenities you want to have on-site like room service, a bar, a pool or entertainment.
When searching for accommodation, you might come across serviced apartments, which can be quite appealing to groups of travellers in particular. Here are some of the best reasons to opt for a serviced apartment for your next trip.
Take a quick look at Dream Apartments, featured in Love Belfast, to see what you could be getting at around the same price you’d expect to pay for a hotel, at just £40 per night. Serviced apartments are a great choice if you want a comfortable, luxurious experience without breaking the bank, and the best part is that if you’re paying per apartment, everybody can split the cost and save without having to settle for a basic hotel room instead.
After a few days, staying in a hotel room can get frustrating. If you’re in a cheap or average hotel, you’ll probably be provided with the basics, which is sufficient, but eventually, you might wish that you had more space to keep your snacks fresh or your beer cold, and it can start to get a little claustrophobic. Maybe you just want to relax on the sofa when watching TV. Serviced apartments are a great choice because they provide a more ‘home from home’ experience with separate living and dining areas, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen – ideal if you prefer self-catering trips or just want to have the option to save on food during your break.
Staying in separate hotel rooms when you’re travelling in a group means that you might not have the chance to be as social as you’d like to. Meeting up with the rest of your group tends to happen when you’re all going to do something together, and you might not get as many chances to just catch up and chill out together if you’re all in different rooms at other ends of the hotel. On the other hand, a serviced apartment is a great choice since while everybody still has their own privacy, you’re all staying together making catching up and planning group activities a whole lot easier.
If you’re planning an upcoming getaway with friends or family, getting accommodation that’s right for everybody is essential. You really can’t go wrong with a serviced apartment, as they provide everything you need for a comfortable and cost-effective stay.
