Getting away for a couple’s break can be great, but you need to think just as much about where you’re staying as where you’re going. Your first impulse is probably to search for hotels, but here are just a few reasons why serviced apartments make a better option for couples.
Space to Spread Out
Whether you’re going on a quick city break or staying put for a few weeks, going somewhere as a couple means more than simply seeing the sights in a new location. You also have a great chance to deepen your bond. There’s no work to get in the way and no other friends or obligations jostling for your attention. Oddly enough, it’s when away from home that two people have the most time for each other.
With a serviced apartment, you can make the most of that time. There’s a fully-fitted kitchen where you can cook and eat together and a living area where you can relax during the evening. Those are amenities that hotel rooms don’t generally provide.
Even if you do get a hotel room with plenty of space to spend time together, you won’t feel any sense of privacy – after all, your hotel will probably be accommodating many other people, perhaps hundreds more. When you go away for a romantic couple’s break, you want the place you’re staying to feel like your own little home away from home, and you only get that cosy sense of privacy when you book a serviced apartment.
Finally, keep in mind that serviced apartments are generally a little more romantic and intimate than hotels. This is partly because hotel rooms are decorated rather impersonally while serviced apartments feel more like an actual home, but it’s also down to the physical location of each establishment.
In general, hotels are built far from the centre of town. In contrast, most serviced apartments are found right in the centre of a city, and they’re often converted from charming period buildings.
