Canberra Apartments


How are serviced apartments different to hotels?

When travelling to Canberra for business or pleasure, there are now many different types of accommodation to choose from. These range from cheap poky hotels to five-star luxury ones and the comfort of luxury short term apartments.

The difference between hotels and serviced apartments is vast and can greatly make your visit to Canberra as efficient and comfortable as possible.

Fortunately, Canberra is a modern cosmopolitan city and has developed a wide range of accommodations for all sorts of travellers—from families on vacation to seasoned business travellers.

Accommodate Canberra would like to share the benefits of choosing a serviced apartment when travelling to Canberra.

Accommodate Canberra has worked with property owners and visitors to Canberra for over 30 years and is one of the most trusted and experienced short-term property managers in the Capital Region.

First, let’s look at the difference between a serviced apartment and a hotel:

Serviced apartments – are generally larger accommodations with more than one room and include cooking and living spaces. They are generally booked for a week to a couple of months and can be a good family option or home-away-from-home for business or vacation travellers. A serviced apartment can also be a more economical option over the longer term.

Hotels – can be a good option for very short stays of one to three days. If you need a place to put your head between meetings or are travelling alone. Hotels also usually provide room service and other concierge services for your convenience. Hotels are for you if you like living out of a suitcase when travelling. 

Serviced apartments vs hotels

More space – You will generally have around double the space in a serviced apartment. This will give you the luxury of spreading out and being more comfortable. If you are travelling with children, there may also be additional rooms you can escape to for a few minutes of peace.

Your own kitchen - One of the benefits of a serviced apartment is that they will almost always have a more substantial kitchen than a hotel. Therefore, you can decide to cook your favourite comfort food or meal for the kids, in addition to the odd cup of tea and a biscuit. 

Home away from home – If you are staying somewhere for more than a week, you will probably choose a fully furnished serviced apartment over a hotel. It will feel more like a home rather than living out of a single room. You will probably have a separate bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, and bedroom.

Living in luxury – Serviced apartments can offer you a high degree of luxury with high-quality furnishings, fittings, and appliances. They can also have gyms and pools.
