Why you should choose a serviced apartment for your city break

Spread the love

We’d all love to be able to take two-week long holidays on a regular basis but sadly, that’s not an option for most people. However, you can always arrange some nice city breaks for quick weekend getaways until you can have the luxury of going further afield.

When you do, you should consider opting for a serviced apartment when choosing accommodation. Here are just a few reasons why they make the best option for city breaks.

Immerse yourself in the culture of the city

Serviced apartments are usually converted from period properties. Why does that matter? Because you’ll be staying somewhere that’s part of the local culture. An apartment in one city will be different from one in the next; that’s much nicer than staying in samey hotel rooms that offer no extra benefit.

Central Location

Hotels are often built on a city’s perimeter; you can find hotels set right in the city centre, but those ones are going to cost an arm and a leg, which isn’t ideal for a quick city break. Most serviced apartments are set right in the centre of town, so you’ll be just a hop, skip, and a jump away from all the best activities, sights, restaurants, and bars.

Plenty of Space

While staying in the city can be great, it’s fair to say you might want your personal space at the end of the day. After the hustle and bustle of the streets, nothing’s better than coming back to your own little slice of peace and quiet. A serviced apartment provides separate areas for dining, sleeping, and living, so you’ll have all the space you could ask for.
