Serviced Apartments: How to find the best hotel alternative

by Vijay Patel Vijay Patel

Accommodation costs can make one of the largest dents in your travel budget. Hotels are one of the most popular accommodations but good hotels can be quite expensive, whereas mid-range hotels might feel quite cramped and lack many amenities.

If not hotels then what are your stay options? Alternatives you can choose from are:

1.   Homestay: As the name indicates you will be staying at a home. Generally the owner of the house also resides in the house, you might be offered a room/ floor/ or even a portion of the house for your stay. You might be sharing some or all amenities with the owners. This is one of the cheapest alternatives to a hotel. But it definitely is not the most comfortable or private stay option.

2.   House – Sitting: This one might be a free of cost stay option for those of you travelling on a really tight budget. Here you will be living in a house, which is unoccupied, so you will be taking care of the house for the owners. In lieu of your maintaining the house, the owner might let you stay for free, or charge you some basic electric charges etc. Here you do not get any amenities, and you are on your own devices. Unless you are a solo backpacker, who loves to roughen it out, house–sitting might not be a good option for you.

3.   Serviced Apartment: This is one of the most popular and sought after alternative to hotel, due to the host of benefits it offers. Serviced apartment are at par with hotels in terms of amenities, whereas their charges are much lower than the hotels. As an added bonus, their rooms are much bigger and offer many more amenities than a hotel room. Usually serviced apartments are apartment complex, where rooms are like apartments, so you have a bedroom, a kitchen, a hall, a balcony and much more. It’s like a complete home. A home away from home for you. Sounds too good to be true! Then read on to know in detail about the various ways in which Serviced apartment like Lalco Residency score over hotel accommodations.
