Since the start of the Covid19 debacle, the hospitality industry has faced an unprecedented challenge, with an almost complete freeze of room reservations, especially within classic hotel properties. Devastating effects are evident across most accommodation types; however, extended stay serviced apartments have shown notable resilience, and these are some of the reasons why:
A homey feeling when away from home. A serviced apartment is probably the closest alternative to feeling at home. An apartment provides you all the basics: a kitchen, a living and dining area separate from your bedroom. The fact that you have more space, boosts your chances to find a comfort zone, resembling your preferred spot at home.
Health concerns. We have ‘unavoidably’ become wary about being in public places, exposing ourselves to be touched by a pandemic outbreak. We no longer feel at ease when walking through a hotel lobby or going to a restaurant, therefore, we would like to be given the option to get our own groceries to cook at home or to simply order a takeaway.
Higher hygiene standards. A serviced apartment is an excellent accommodation alternative as you can benefit from checking-in to an immaculate property while having ongoing services, such as clean sheets, laundry and regular property cleaning.
Flexibility. Guess what?! Many of us can now work from home, so why not take advantage of temporary homes in places you always wanted to visit. Imagine spending three months in Rome calling a serviced apartment facing the Coliseum “home”, or maybe a beach front location in the Caribbean is an option to consider.
More space, more value. The longer you stay in a serviced apartment the lower its cost. As an average price of serviced apartments are 30% lower than a hotel room. And you still get all the benefits of feeling at home.
