Info of Serviced Apartments and Hotels

Serviced apartments are fully furnished properties comprising of living rooms, fully fitted kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. Therefore unlike hotel accommodation where you are confined to your bedroom if you want privacy, you can really stretch out in a serviced apartment.

Most serviced apartments are also equipped with the latest technology including satellite television and wireless broadband along with direct dial telephones and fax machines. In most hotels however, if you want to use the internet or send a fax you have to visit the business centre which can be time consuming and inconvenient.

Alternatively, if you want to eat out you can visit a restaurant. As most serviced apartments are based in or near city centres, this is very easy to do.

If you are staying in a hotel however, you cannot cook food yourself. As a result you have to rely on the hotel restaurant or room service or an external restaurant for meals. As well as being restrictive this can also become very expensive.
