Need to visit Brisbane for an extended stay? If you choose a hotel for short term accommodation in Brisbane, the problem is, it can get quite expensive as your only option is to pay for each night. And under certain circumstances, that simply just won’t do. In order to save money, I suggest you take a look at alternative accommodation options, such as short term apartments that offer discounted rates for weekly and monthly stays.
Perhaps you have a temporary business contract in Brisbane? If you stay in a hotel, you might find yourself rushing through the job in order to lessen the number of nights you need to pay for. Personally I can’t imagine getting any work done properly as I watch my expenses add up.
Or maybe you have just moved from interstate or overseas and still haven’t found a place to settle down in permanently? Getting a short term accommodation in a Brisbane apartment will let you explore and get to know the city for as long as you need. This way, you can carefully choose which part of the city and which neighborhood is perfect for you without worrying about your expenses. After all, choosing your permanent abode is an important decision that will impact your entire life, and feeling pressured certainly won’t help you choose properly.
These are just some of the reasons why you should consider the monetary benefits of choosing an apartment for your short term accommodation in Brisbane over expensive hotels.
Below, I will highlight additional benefits so you can make the right decision.
The Pros of Short Term Apartment Accommodation vs. Hotels
Enjoy more living spaces
It can get pretty tiresome to live out your daily life in a cramped hotel room, and more so if you’re relocating with your family. As you go about your daily round and try to relax at night after a long day of work or of searching for the perfect neighborhood, the four corners of a hotel room can start to feel quite restrictive and confining.
Thankfully, by booking short term accommodation in Brisbane serviced apartments such as our own here at Bridgewater Terraces, you will have more space and feel much more comfortable despite your temporary situation. Aside from just the bed and bath normally offered by hotels, you can lounge around in a living area, finish up some work in a mini office, prepare your meals in the kitchen, and even share a family dinner in the dining area. You and the entire family can also share the space comfortably, without getting in each others way. See our short term accommodation offerings as an example.
Reduce your living expenses
Serviced Apartments won’t just save you on your accommodations expense. Since they’re fitted with the facilities essential in a normal home, you will also save a lot on your living expenses. The fully equipped kitchen with cooking appliances and even a dishwasher will allow you to cook your own food instead of dining out at every mealtime.
The laundry facilities will let you wash your own clothes without spending extra on having them washed by a professional cleaner – just imagine how much you can save, especially when you have your whole family’s laundry to consider!
We offer such services at Bridgewater Terraces with special short term accommodation rates on a minimum stay of 28 days from just $145 per night.
The Pros of a Short Term Accommodation Lease vs. Standard Lease
If you’re relocating and need a place to stay while you search for the perfect Brisbane property to invest in, you can choose between a short term apartment or a standard 6 or 12 month lease. While a standard lease will save you money on monthly rental, there are several other monetary factors to consider.
End your stay without paying extra
If you sign a contract on a 6 or 12 month lease, you need to stay for the full term of the lease. If you find your permanent home sooner than expected or find a job that is too far from your rented apartment, and thus decide to end your lease contract earlier, you will be legally obligated to pay a penalty.
On the other hand, if you rent a short term accommodation in Brisbane on a weekly or monthly basis, you can check out anytime without incurring extra charges.
Extend your stay without any hassle
It is definitely easier to book another week or another month in a short term apartment accommodation in Brisbane. In a standard lease, you usually have to put down a commitment to renew your lease for another 6 or 12 months, and you have to do it early; otherwise the landlord will start looking for a new tenant before your lease ends. This might make it impossible for you to extend your stay for a few more weeks or months, if necessary.
