How to know whether you need a long or short stay serviced apartment

Holidays come far and few in-between for most working people so when you do manage to get away to an exciting location you should make sure that you minimize the stress of organising your accommodation and events.

You may be wondering whether or not to opt for a long or short stay serviced apartment. The short answer is, it depends what you’re looking to get out of the apartment.

How long are you going for?

This may sound like a fairly obvious question; however, you will be surprised by the number of holidaymakers who do not check the specifications of their apartment and whether it suits the length of the stay.

If you are planning a long stay then staying in a matching long-stay apartment will help you get the most out of your holiday. In long stay options, you will find more linen, a bigger supply of condiments and all-around amenities suited to longer habitation.

If you are going on a business trip or a long weekend then a short-stay apartment is the best option. If it is fully serviced you will find more short term consumables which will make your stay a short but sweet one.

How many people are you going with?

This may seem somewhat irrelevant but you should factor it in when deciding on a long or short stay apartment. Short-stay accommodation in a city may offer better value however you will need to take into account the sleeping arrangements and what you and your guests will be most happy with. 

How much are you looking to spend?

If you are looking to get the most value out of your stay you may want to set a budget. A short-stay apartment is a great way to see different parts of a city from a convenient location. A shorter stay will also leave more money for travel and food costs when you are at your location.

Where are you going?

This one is a big factor in how long you choose to stay in your selected apartment. If you are going for a city break, a short stay serviced apartment will give you access to the city.

However, if you are staying a little bit further out of town, a long stay serviced apartment will have the facilities you need to plan various day trips to make the most out of your vacation.
