The growing popularity of serviced apartments Unlike hotels, Bangkok serviced apartments cater to residents’ “full living needs”. More and more, serviced residents are also seen as a logical accommodation choice for executives abroad. Here are some reasons for the growing popularity of serviced apartments.
The cost-benefit offered by serviced apartments is one of the key reasons for their success. They offer significantly better value for money than Bangkok hotels with more spacious and flexible accommodation. Most people also tend to find Bangkok serviced residences more relaxing to stay in than hotels
Most Bangkok serviced apartments have en-suite bathrooms and bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens and living rooms, broadband, Wi-Fi and cable TV. Most also have a swimming pool and fitness center. In addition, many Bangkok serviced apartments also have concierges and in-house maintenance.
As many serviced apartment is located in or near city centers, they are of the close to local restaurants and bars. Of course, if you would rather din in, you can always dine at the residence’s restaurant or prepare dinner in your apartment’s kitchen. In these ways, serviced residences offer true convenience and choice.
Aside from being more comfortable and cost-powerful than hotels, Bangkok serviced residences are also less restrictive than private property rentals. Private property rentals normally require the tenant to commit for a minimum period of time. However, the terms for renting, serviced apartments are much more flexible. Tenants can book a serviced apartment for as long or as short a period as they like. Furthermore, unlike with serviced apartments, renting private property means that you do not have access to a support network.
When you are staying in a hotel, you have to either eat out or in the hotel restaurant. As well as being tedious, this can also become very expensive. However, as Bangkok serviced apartments are equipped with fully fitted kitchens, residents can cook food for themselves. This is much cheaper than eating out all the time.
Furthermore, if you are staying in a hotel and need to clean your clothes, you have to use the hotel laundry or find a local launderette. The first option is expensive and the second is time-consuming. However, most Bangkok serviced apartments have washing machines and dryers. Therefore you can dump a load of washing into the machine before you leave for work in the morning and when you come home in the evening your clothes will be clean. This is a cheap and very easy way to do laundry.
