Be Smart, Book serviced apartments in Brisbane

Booking serviced apartments in Brisbane is far smarter than booking a hotel room

Since you’ve found this article, clearly you are interested not only in getting value for money accommodation, but also in accommodation that offers much more than what a small hotel room has to offer.

I’ve been managing serviced apartments in Brisbane for many years now and it still baffles me why so many holidaymakers instantly assume a hotel is the only way to go. I’m here to tell you that it is not the case at all, and furthermore, why I believe you should be booking serviced apartments in Brisbane for your next holiday. But first, let’s start by explaining what a serviced apartment is.

What are serviced apartments?

Serviced apartments are fully furnished apartments, which are offered to guests for short term as well as long term stays. Typically, a serviced apartment offers amenities similar to what a hotel has to offer but also includes many extras, such as a fully equipped kitchen, separate rooms for dining, sleeping and living in. As such, serviced apartments offer all the convenience of a hotel room, while also offering extra space, more convenience, more privacy and a chance to live in a home like atmosphere. Serviced apartments are also usually much cheaper than hotels, especially for longer stays.

Now, let’s take a look at the benefits that a serviced apartment has to offer over hotels in more detail.

Better value for money

Serviced apartments in Brisbane offer much better value for money over hotels. On an average, serviced apartments are up to 30% cheaper than comparable hotel rooms and there are fewer living costs in a serviced apartment. Most serviced apartments, such as ours at Bridgewater Terraces, feature fully equipped kitchens, internet and Wi-Fi facilities, housekeeping and maid services and costs for these are included in the rate. Hotels, on the other hand, charge extra for using these services.

More space, not just a room

While most hotels feature the same offerings – a room and an attached bathroom, serviced apartments are complete apartments, which offer much more space and have more rooms. As compared to a hotel room, serviced apartments offer 25% more space to live in. There are separate rooms for sleeping, dining and living in, with modern toilets and many other amenities. Serviced apartments in Brisbane, offer 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartments, making them ideal for larger groups who are looking for extended stays.

More affordable form of accommodation

While serviced apartments offer better value for money over extended periods of stay, they are also much cheaper than hotel rooms even for short stays of 3 nights or more. At Bridgewater Terraces, our Brisbane serviced apartments are available from $180 per night, which is much cheaper than most hotel rates in Brisbane CBD.

More flexibility

Finally, serviced apartments in Brisbane offer much more flexibility than hotel rooms. By offering a home like atmosphere, you get to cook your own meals, you have more space to entertain your guests, you have separate areas to live in and you get far more privacy than what a hotel room provides.

Now that you have an idea of what serviced apartments have to offer, you should definitely consider booking serviced apartments in Brisbane over choosing to live in a hotel. Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, we offer high quality and spacious serviced apartments, which will make you forget hotels for good.
