If you are travelling for business or pleasure, travelling by yourself or with a group of work colleagues, you will always need accommodation, no matter where you travel in Australia. Depending on how long you will be staying there, there are a number of different accommodation options open to you. If it is your intention to stay longer than a few days, then you might want to consider renting an apartment for the duration. Hotels are fine for one or two days, but after that, you begin to miss your home comforts and being able to do things for yourself like cooking and washing.
If you go to any large city in Australia, you will find a wealth of apartments currently available to rent short-term or long-term, and the longer you rent them, the cheaper they are. From a business point of view, it makes sense to try to save some money on your business trip instead of paying out hundreds of dollars for a single room in a fancy hotel. For the same money, you could stay in a top-level apartment like the Platinum Apartments and enjoy the many facilities and benefits that serviced apartments offer.
The following are some of the benefits of staying in a serviced apartment whether you are travelling for business or leisure.
- More Space – When you stay in a serviced apartment, there is so much more room than you would have in a hotel room, for example. There is extra room to continue your work and filling extra paperwork, you can also cook, stretch out your legs and really relax. With regards to the fees, serviced apartments are, on average, 30% bigger than most hotel rooms, and a typical one-bedroom serviced apartment is around two times the size of your average hotel room.
- No Hidden Charges – In a serviced apartment there are no hidden extras, like you would find in a hotel with a minibar or room service. The great thing is that the longer you stay, the cheaper the apartment becomes and if you are having an extended business trip to tie up a few loose ends, or your family group intends to stay in the city for four weeks or longer, then significant savings can be made.
- Location, Location – Depending on where it is that you want to visit or do business, you can find a serviced apartment in many great locations. There are many apartments in the heart of the city, or of you want something a little bit quieter, there are apartments on the outskirts of the city.
The great thing about a serviced apartment is that you are free to come and go as you want, and that means you make your own schedule. Most apartments have facilities where you can cook your meals, workout in the gym or complete some of your work using their free Wi-Fi facilities. Whatever you need, your serviced apartment can provide it and much more. Many of them have swimming pools, restaurants and bars and are the perfect place to relax.
