We’d all obviously rather be going on holiday rather than travelling for business, but taking a work trip can still be beneficial. Of course, how much you enjoy your trip often hangs on how good your accommodation is.
With that in mind, here are five reasons you should book a serviced apartment for your business trip.
- Reduced Expense
When you’re travelling for business, you want to save as much money as possible while staying somewhere attractive and comfortable. Serviced apartments fit the bill, especially if you’re staying for a longer business trip. If you’re staying for more than a week, expect your costs to be significantly lower
- Great Amenities
It really is incredible just how many hotels still refuse to provide Wi-Fi as standard. Even when internet access is provided, it’s often charged by the day or by how much data you use, and you’ll sometimes find download and upload speeds slow since hotel Wi-Fi needs to connect lots of different people at once. When you book a serviced apartment, you’ll find that high-speed Wi-Fi is included as standard.
- Central Location
If you’re visiting for business, it’s vital you pick accommodation that is centrally located. Whether you want to visit a client in their office or head out for drinks with your team, being as close as possible to the city centre should be advantageous. Unfortunately, most chain hotels are built from new, which makes them more likely to be built in the outskirts, especially in an older city. Serviced apartments are often in the city centre, having been converted from period apartments.
- Cooking and Washing Facilities
Businesspeople need to look the part, and that can be tough when you must rely on the hotel’s laundry service. Items may not be done in time, and it’s always a little chancy trusting your best shirts to someone else. Again, serviced apartments have the answer – they come with washing machines, so you’ll be able to take care of all your business wear.
- Perfect for Meetings
Finally, but perhaps most importantly, a serviced apartment will be great for meetings. Each one should be much larger than a hotel room, with a proper table and chairs for everyone to work at. Meetings are accommodated more easily, and a more professional tone is struck.
