Advantages of serviced apartments as Melbourne accommodation

Posted by SharonEvans on May 15th, 2013

 Thinking of a trip to the exciting city of Melbourne? A week or more can get pretty expensive, what with the sightseeing in the city, the transport expenses and the hotel rent. Not to mention the food and the money spent on buying bric-a-brac memorabilia from the odd shops. While cutting down on the other aspects of the trip would mean restricting the itinerary itself, what you can certainly do is to ensure that the expenditure incurred in Melbourne accommodation is curtailed. Setting up temporary residence in a hotel- no matter how cheap- is something that would, at any rate, catapult your expenses to a pretty high figure and might eat into your entire budget considerably. In such a situation, you can actually cut down on your accommodation expenses by choosing to stay in serviced apartments instead of hotels. These Melbourne serviced apartments are lucrative not just due to the fact that they are much cheaper than an extended hotel stay; these are also highly convenient if you are traveling with your family with very young children and/or aged people in tow.

Serviced apartments can be rented for a considerable stretch of time, and the conveniences of the same need no elaboration. For starters, the cheap factor is the biggest draw; a week in a Melbourne accommodation like a serviced apartment would cost almost half the amount that will be incurred by the stay in a medium-range hotel for the same time span.

Aside from the money factor, the serviced apartments are also spacious Melbourne accommodation, with a lot more leg space than the average hotel room. Of course, you can book a suite to accommodate yourself, but the expenses would skyrocket needlessly. If you are travelling with a large entourage, taking up accommodation in one of the Melbourne serviced apartments is a pretty good idea. It should also be kept in mind that there would be no requirement to book more than one apartment even if you are four or more people; something that cannot be said about hotels.

In case you have aged people with you, or very young children, the Melbourne serviced apartments are ideal for you. It might become slightly difficult to provide for such members of the family in a hotel, since all the facilities that can only be provided at home will not be available. Apart from this, it is also highly useful for people who include in the ranks people that are unwell and need medical attention and/or special care. That would be hard to come by in hotels, but Melbourne accommodation like the serviced apartments prove great in this respect.

The Melbourne serviced apartments provide something unique that cannot be given by any hotel, no matter how luxuriously furnished: the homely feeling. No matter how far one goes in their quest to travel, the desire to find a home away from home is ever present. This is something that is invariably present in a serviced apartment; thanks to the fact that you have the key with you, cook your own food and have the luxury of coming and going as you please, it is like staying in your on holiday home.
