Furnished apartments are going to provide you everything you need. Whether you are going on vacation, going on a corporate retreat, or spending some time in a city before you move there, you will want to look into one of these over a hotel. If you look at the amenities at a hotel in comparison to a furnished apartment, you will never want to stay in a hotel again for more than a couple of days.
Hotels are fine if you are only going to be there for a day or two. If you stay any longer, you are suddenly going to find that you don’t have everything you need. Some of the things you will be lacking include.
- A comfortable bed
- Room to walk around
- A kitchen
- Laundry facilities
All of these things are of the utmost importance if you want to be comfortable. You cannot be expected to sleep on an uncomfortable bed for more than a night or two. You need your rest and the hotel room bed isn’t cutting it, it’s going to cause you to be cranky and most likely unproductive throughout the day.
You also need room to walk around. Especially if you are in town on business, you may want to be able to invite a few people over to discuss a meeting or simply to have some company on lonely nights. You cannot do this in a hotel room simply because the square footage doesn’t allow you to do it. Furnished apartments can provide you a significant amount of space.
If you’ve ever been on travel for longer than a few days, you get tired of eating fast food and paying high prices at restaurants. At some point, you begin craving home-cooked food –even if it’s the food that you can throw in a microwave or in an oven to be able to eat. Hotel rooms simply don’t provide you with kitchens because they don’t assume people are going to stay very long. If the hotel has a restaurant on site, they definitely aren’t going to provide you with the kitchen because they want your business down in the hotel restaurant.
With furnished apartments, you have a full kitchen. This means a stove, an oven, and a microwave. It also means plates and silverware, pots and pans, and everything that you could want in order to be able to cook. You simply go down to the grocery store and load up the refrigerator within your apartment in order to prepare an email that you wish. You are in control of what you eat – and you are in control of what you spend on your food because you are no longer relying on the restaurants around the hotel you are staying in.
If you have a choice between staying in hotels or furnished apartments, you have to look at how long you are staying for. If you are staying for a week or longer, an apartment is simply going to be the best choice for you.
