Serviced Apartments are preferred by people going on a vacation, executives who travel to different places to work on different projects from time to time, medical tourists and to accommodate guests invited for weddings and other important ceremonies. The serviced apartment scores over the hotels on the following aspects.
SPACE AND DESIGN
Service apartments are usually larger than the rooms in the Hotel. The extra living space adds to the comfort over a Hotel where all amenities are provided in a cramped space. The Hotels rooms are designed to accommodate guests only on a temporary basis.
Serviced apartment might not have an attached restaurant but it is likely to have a fully equipped kitchen and therefore, offers a choice of cooking for ourselves while in a Hotelone is forced to take the food in the restaurant or put up with the inconvenience of going out to other food joints every time.
The serviced apartments that cater to their guests do it at a cost which is lower than the rates charged by the Hotel for room service.
LAUNDRY AND HOUSE -KEEPING
Serviced Apartments offer laundry services for washing and ironing or even dry cleaning the clothes of the guests and they also give special discounts for regular users. House – keeping services also can be availed clean the utensils, sweep and mop the floor and change the sheets . These are done in a personalized manner when compared to the Hotel.
COMFORT LEVEL OF THE GUESTS YOU MEET
Since serviced apartments have a living room it is easier to meet the guests you have in the living room whereas, in a Hotel the space is cramped and the guests may feel that they are intruding into your privacy.
COMFORTABLE TO ACCOMMODATE FAMILY AND CHILDREN
The serviced apartments score high on this factor as this gives a feeling of a home away from home. The children have the comfort of watching television without disturbing the elders. They could also indulge in indoor and outdoor activities which is not possible in the Hotel room.
NUMBER OF PEOPLE ACCOMODATED
The number of people you could accommodate in a serviced apartment is definitely more than the number you could accommodate in a Hotel roomand hence, the most sought out solution for accommodating huge number of guests who come to attend a wedding or a reception or even a corporate or Bank events.
DURATION OF STAY
Duration of stay in a serviced apartment could vary from a few days to a period of six months. In a Hotel there are restrictions in booking and even if you decide to accommodate yourself in the same Hotel you are not assured of getting the same room again.
The tariff of the serviced apartment will be less than that of the Hotel considering the length of stay of the people opting for a serviced apartment.
