Why opt for serviced apartments in Cambridge as opposed to a hotel?

When going on holiday or arranging a business trip, your first destination may automatically be the online booking sites to find a suitable hotel.

But wait. Have you considered serviced apartments instead?

A serviced apartment comes with many benefits – in fact, once you have a better understanding of what's on offer, you might realise just how many advantages it has over hotels.

Staying for a decent amount of time?

If you only need accommodation in Cambridge for a short amount of time, the price of a serviced apartment is likely to be pretty comparable to a run-of-the-mill hotel. However, if you are planning on staying for days or weeks at a time, you'll find that a serviced apartment offers far better value for money.

More space

Book a room at a hotel and that's exactly what you're paying for – a room. Yes, there are communal areas that you can use but the only privacy you'll have is in your room and bathroom.

When it comes to serviced apartments, you can choose the amount of bedrooms you need. For example, Signet Apartments Ltd in Cambridge has a choice of one, two or three 4 and 5-star bedroom serviced apartments.

The majority of serviced apartments have their own kitchens and living rooms. They are also likely to have a table and chairs. Ideal for family time or if you're on a business trip, this space can be used for relaxed meetings and get-togethers.

Home from home

Signet Apartments Ltd in Cambridge also has a number of serviced apartments with their own balconies, private allocated parking space, washing and drying facilities, high speed wireless broadband, and free use of the apartment complex's printer, scanner, fax machine and photocopier*.

This means you can practically live as you would at home without having to worry about where the nearest launderette is and how far away you'll have to park (and whether you'll incur extortionate parking charges).

Close to everything you need

Many budget hotels are priced as such because of their location. In the end, you get what you pay for and this may mean nights spent overlooking an industrial estate a few miles from the city centre.

However, Signet Apartments Ltd have specifically selected their sites based on their proximity to some of Cambridge's main points of interest. Do you want to be close to Cambridge city centre? Want immediate access to the local business and science parks? Need to be near the transport links that Cambridge train station offers? There will be a serviced apartment to suit.

With all the amenities you'd expect from a hotel

Don't think that just because you're opting for a serviced apartment, you're not going to have those creature comforts you enjoy when staying at a hotel. Signet Apartments Ltd in Cambridge supplies a welcome pack for all new arrivals, with a bottle of wine, a meal, cereals, tea, coffee and sugar!

Plus in your bathroom you'll find a L'Occitaine pamper pack! That's better than we have at home!

And of course, the price includes the apartment rental, a weekly maid and housekeeping service. Cleaning, fresh linen and towels, all utilities and parking is included.

So the next time you're thinking of staying in Cambridge – whether for business or pleasure – don't automatically book a hotel. Consider a serviced apartment instead – you'll be glad you did!
