You have been planning for that vacay for a while now, sacrificed a few turn ups to save every penny so as to make it worthwhile. Well, I’m here to iron out a little (not) detail which will wholesomely impact your experience. People travelling for work you’re also welcome to gather around, this will make work a lot easier for you and you can er…you know, save a lot on that per diem.
There are many reasons why you should seriously consider staying in an apartment instead of a hotel. I will give you four, the rest you will discover when you finally stay in one.
You can cook your own meals.
If you are a native food lover like me, you can seriously agree that one of the great challenges of being away from home is not being able to get well done food, with sugar and spice balanced to your liking. You start missing home almost immediately. That shouldn’t be a worry though if you are in a space which will allow you to cook your own meals. Of course cooking is also way cheaper than buying food at the restaurant.
Apartments are normally fitted with kitchens where you can cook or warm your meals at your own convenience as opposed to the typical scheduled meal time in hotels! And since you don’t like washing utensils or cleaning the floor (trust me, I know the struggle), don’t worry, proceed with your business. That will be done for you; just don’t create a huge mess!
You can have visitors and still maintain your Privacy
The thing about a hotel room is that your bedroom, kitchen, living room and what have you are all bundled into one. Woe into you if you want to invite someone in and your belongings are all over the place. An apartment however provides a separate living room away from the bedroom, you know, like home. You can invite your friends, relatives or colleagues in without having your privacy invaded.
There’s enough space to have a chilled hang out, play games, gossip, strike a deal (tenderpreneurs we got you) catch up in a quiet uninterrupted manner or engage in a work discussion. You have your own television and can change channels as you please especially if you want to catch up on the latest politics shenanigans. “Drinks from outside are ALLOWED”, how better can it get than that?
You can work without distraction
That moment when you’re digging your head deep into work that you ever forget to breath, the last thing you want is a “room service knock” on your door. It ejects you from very important undertaking and transfers you back to reality. Not cool! An apartment provides a serene and totally private environment to beat your work deadline. The internet is very fast, since there are not so many of you around to overload it like some places we know.
If you’re the kind that gets tempted by your bed to take several naps a day, you’re definitely not at risk of not finishing your work. Why? Refer to point two above. Yap! Your living room can serve as a makeshift office. With no bed in sight, your temptation to sleep reduces by more than half. You can comfortably use all your office tools, no ink will be spilt on white bedsheets.
You can accommodate an extra person
I don’t know about you but I totally hate sharing my bed(I hope my partner never reads this). Having someone else rolling and turning; foraying into your space ruins a good night’s sleep. This doesn’t have to be the case though, because in an apartment you can have an extra bed (sometimes even other extra rooms depending with the size) at no extra cost. You can comfortably accommodate a friend or relative and everyone will have their own space.
If you are travelling on budget in a group of two or more people and you wouldn’t mind staying together then an apartment is the place for you to be. You will cook together, share the living room and sleep in your own separate space. You know where else that happens? Home. I know I’m using many words just to explain that an apartment strives to provide for you a home away from home. Totally worth a try and we are looking forward to hosting you soon. Xo Xo!
