Why Serviced Apartments are the Best Choice for your Holiday Accommodation

When it comes to booking a well-earned holiday in your dream location, finding the perfect holiday accommodation is crucial. Arriving at your destination of choice only to be handed the keys to an uninspired hotel room or cramped cottage can be the undoing of all your holiday plans. That’s why we recommend you join the many thousands of holiday accommodation converts and turn your search to serviced apartments. With a whole catalogue of benefits, holiday apartments make ideal home-from-home bases, whether you are holidaying in your favourite international city or enjoying a luxury staycation. Read on to discover why a Citybase serviced apartment could well hold the key to your ultimate holiday experience.

Ideal for Couples, Families or Groups of Friends

Serviced apartments are suitable for all, including couples seeking a romantic holiday together

Serviced apartments come in all shapes and sizes, meaning there will always be a choice to suit you. No matter how many are in your party, a serviced apartment provides a homely setup comprised of private bedrooms and communal living areas. Having a multi-roomed apartment allows you to come together as a family for meals or fun and games, but also enjoy time away from each other when you want a quiet moment! Unlike a series of separated hotel rooms where spending time apart becomes a logistical nightmare, in a serviced apartment you can have peace of mind knowing your kids are enjoying the HD TV in the sitting room while you and your partner have a glass of wine or two on the private balcony.

Holiday apartments also accommodate groups of friends perfectly. With a spacious central living space to enjoy, organising meals and drinks for all in your apartment is a breeze. Going your own way? Not a problem – the flexibility of a large serviced apartment means you and your friends can enjoy time apart before regrouping at your holiday hub kitchen for a catch up over breakfast. On the other hand, smaller apartments for two make for stylish romantic getaways. Got an anniversary coming up? Pick a city, find a serviced apartment with Citybase and get going. The beauty of our service is we can recommend a thousand things to do wherever you’re going, whether through a city guide, blog or a simple staff recommendation. Even when booked as last minute holiday accommodation, the convenience and quality of serviced apartments means you’ll feel at home in no time.

Amazing Value and Availability

Beautiful holiday apartments come in many forms - but always at excellent rates

Surprising to many, hotel rooms are rarely the best value option. Despite the incredible facilities and space serviced apartments afford, they are almost always less expensive than other forms of holiday accommodation. But wait, it gets even better - for those planning on a long-stay holiday; serviced apartments offer even more amazing value. Bookings of 28 days or more benefit from a tax reduction applied to the entire stay – and so the value appeal of apartments for either short or long stay holidays is undeniable. The added benefit of booking your holiday apartments with Citybase is that our in-house team provide a personalised service, and by liaising with our extensive property partner network can even negotiate better rates for you, the customer, wherever we can.

A major competitive edge serviced apartments have over hotels is their availability and distribution. Hotels tend to be clustered in busy city areas in long established buildings – with little ability to expand or enhance their accommodation. This results in a limited selection of locations as well as rooms short on space. Contrastingly, serviced apartments tend to be spread throughout cities – right from the most travel convenient locations to those prime areas at a peaceful remove from the busy city but with excellent transportation access. From boutique apartments in small, beautiful former houses, to glistening modern spaces in custom built apartment complexes, serviced apartments can pop up virtually anywhere. With the best property providers in the business contributing to our portfolio, we select the very best for our clients. Furthermore, holiday apartments exist almost everywhere in the world – and we have a vast selection ready for you to book for your next adventure.

The Best Features and Facilities

From the simple and functional to the luxurious and stylish, there is a serviced apartment to suit each taste and budget

The real selling point of a serviced apartment is its fantastic range of features and facilities. With each apartment/apartment complex being a unique creation, there is an apartment, and corresponding set of features, to cater to every budget. But even the bare minimum array of features we ensure comes with every apartment we book – fully furnished kitchen, living space, and housekeeping – provides an element of luxury and convenience with which a hotel can’t compete. With a host of facilities available depending on your booking, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centres, spas, restaurants, bars, private cinemas and much more, you really can tailor your apartment to create the optimum, luxury holiday accommodation.

Often beautifully decorated and featuring a balcony or private outside space, apartments are also lovely spaces in which to simply enjoy the company of the people you are with. The addition of a kitchen in these self-catering apartments not only reduces the expense of constantly eating out, but also adds another dynamic to your stay. The option to cook and eat together, or even entertain visiting friends, adds to the holiday atmosphere of having your own special home-from-home. Enjoying the privacy, peace and security of your apartment will transform your holiday into one that is truly memorable and stress-free.
