When it comes to a relaxing getaway with the family, standard hotel rooms just don’t cut it. No matter what, everyone eventually drives each other mad. You may end up more stressed out than you were before the trip. You may not be able to value your time together as a family. The solution: give serviced apartments hotels a try!
Serviced apartments are becoming more and more common among families on holiday, and with good reason. They are often more centralised in the city centre and offer more dynamic living spaces without compromising privacy. They also offer better security, reputable quality and incomparable hotel perks that you can’t miss out on. With a serviced apartment, you can have it all!
Here’s 7 key reasons why serviced apartments are ideal for your family this Easter weekend:
Lucky for you, serviced apartments come with a fully-equipped kitchen to make meals a breeze.
We all know how stressful the restaurant experience can be with the whole family, especially with picky eaters and small children. To avoid the chaos, the best option might simply be to eat in. Get something easy to prepare or make your family’s favourite meal. You’ll save yourselves the trouble of getting the kids ready to eat out, every single day, three times a day. And when you do decide to eat out, it will be a much more exciting and rewarding experience for all!
With your own kitchen at hand, meals will undoubtedly be cheaper, easier and healthier. What’s better is you can have them when and how your family wants, according to your own routine.
Most importantly, serviced apartments give you independence. Not only independence with meal options and schedules, but personal space. While you’re on holiday and hope to spend quality time with your family, spending every waking minute together is bound to drive some of you mad. A serviced apartment generally offers 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom options, offering parents, young kids and teenagers the space they need to unwind and rest up after a long day out and about.
What this means is better quality time together as a family when you’re ready for it. Serviced apartments also include social areas for everyone to gather and truly appreciate being together.
3. Home Away from Home
Serviced apartments prioritize comfort. Imagine trying to be comfortable in a hotel room with your whole family crowded around one bed and one small television screen. Tasteful personality is also a given in a serviced apartment. Hotels generally look the same after a while: the same starched white linen, bland coloured duvets, and dull inoffensive drawings of flowers or landscapes. A serviced apartment, on the other hand, is generally decorated in a unique, intentional style with plenty of personal touches. You’ll often find apartments with tasteful artwork and inspiring decor, making you feel immediately at home in this new place. In no time, you’ll feel immersed and relaxed in your new home away from home.
Serviced apartments are often found in larger cities, making them the ideal city getaway. They offer the perfect compromise between small downtown hotel rooms and more spacious hotels in the suburbs. Imagine living in the heart of Bangkok for a week, with all of the convenience and independence of your own flat. Step out and you’re a minute’s walk from the high street, the best museums and the trendiest shops and restaurants. A serviced apartment in the city center is the ideal option with all the advantages and convenience of being downtown without compromising your family’s comfort. Now where you go is up to you!
5. Peace of Mind
Do you get bored living out of a suitcase after a day or two? Does it drive you mad when you can’t seem to find anything in the tiny hotel room? For those who get peace of mind with organization, a serviced apartment is perfect for you! Everyone has a room for their own things and you’ll find a place for everything. Since serviced apartments include private bedrooms, a kitchen and living room, you’ll be at ease knowing where your things are.
The serviced apartment layout also makes it easier for your family to keep their routine. With separate bedrooms, early risers won’t bother those who value a good lie in, ensuring everyone is in a better mood to start the day!
6. Budget Friendly
A serviced apartment is a fantastic option if your family holiday needs to be budget-friendly. Whether it’s beating the cost of multiple downtown hotel rooms or a suburban hotel (plus cab/metro rides), serviced apartments are a guaranteed better value. Multiple hotel rooms and transportation costs quickly add up, while a serviced apartment in a central location avoids those extraneous expenses.
Another bonus is the money you’ll save on restaurant tabs with a kitchen on site. Not only will dining out when you decide to be a luxurious experience, but you might be able to splurge a bit on a special meal or two!
