When looking for a place to stay for your next trip, you will likely find there are thousands of hotels, villas, apartments and resorts on the internet so it’s hard to know where to start. Seeing as your accommodation is the launch pad from which you will explore your destination, choosing the right place can mean the difference between a happy or horrific holiday. At Executive Escapes, we have a wide range of short stay furnished accommodation options in great locations across Perth. If you are venturing to Perth soon, here are a few important things to check before booking your accommodation.
Always double-check the location before deciding on your accommodation. If you are going on a business trip, you need to look for a location nearby to the meeting or business complex. If travelling for leisure or with the family, having your accommodation close to the city hubs can add extra enjoyment to your holiday and it’s wise to check what’s nearby such as sights and attractions, easy transport access, restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. Having everything you need as well as all of the city’s most iconic sights at your doorstep will mean you can spend less time worrying how you’ll get from place to place and instead spend more time enjoying your getaway.
Facilities and Amenities
Whether you are travelling solo or with the family, you don’t want it to be a stressful experience. Serviced apartments and short stay furnished accommodation provide ample space, privacy, and usually up-to-date entertainment systems like large TVs, DVD players, and in some cases, pay TV. Always check what types of services are offered and whether it could be missing anything that could ruin your comfort or just be inconvenient during your stay. Some of the common facilities and amenities you should confirm before booking include:
- Swimming Pool
- Gym or Fitness Centre
- BBQ Areas
- Laundry Service
- Pay TV
Many travellers overlook the importance of checking how safe and secure the accommodation is. It’s always a good idea to ask about the security features before making any commitments in where you’re staying, especially if you are travelling alone. Security measures such as CCTV cameras, a 24-hour reception service, and in-room safes are some things you should consider when booking short stay furnished accommodation in Perth.
Many travellers opt for hotel rooms as they like the luxury of having the bed made and fresh towels each day. What most don’t realise, is that serviced apartments offer this service too if you need or want it. Not only will you be able to stay in the comfort and luxury of a home away from home, you can have the added benefits of a great housekeeping service too. Cleaning and a daily linen and towel service is often standard with self-contained accommodation, so if this is an essential for you to enjoy your stay then be sure to enquire about it before you make your booking.
You don’t have to downgrade your expectations to make your trip affordable. There are many inexpensive short term furnished accommodation options that give you luxury and comfort without the hefty hotel price tag. The added bonus is you can also save by cooking all your meals in the kitchenette and storing groceries in your apartment fridge. When researching accommodation prices, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that many short stay apartments are priced competitively to hotels, and are often even cheaper yet offer all the same services.
Whether you’re looking for somewhere to stay for a business trip or for a getaway with the whole family, you can’t go past the convenience of a short stay serviced apartment. They provide the best of both worlds – the peace, comfort and privacy of a regular apartment, whilst also providing the convenience of a wide range of services and facilities.
