When it comes to travelling for business, everyone wants to experience comfort and convenience throughout their stay. Your business may take you all over the world, but where you stay has the power to bring home a little closer, as well as unlock the many amenities that are integral to making your business trip a success.

As a leading provider of award winning serviced apartments in Cambridge, we welcome guests from all walks of life, including those staying in the city for business purposes. Hotels are often the first port of call when booking accommodation for your business trip.

But unbeknown to most, serviced apartments are a smarter and more viable alternative. Here, we discuss the benefits of staying in a serviced apartment on your upcoming trip, and trust us, you won’t look back!

Space for work and play

At Citystay, we understand that it’s not all work. During your business trip, you have to indulge in a little leisure time to ensure you’re at your productive best when you do get back to work.

With a serviced apartment, you have space to work and relax, unlike in a hotel, where you are confined to just one room. CT Business Travel reveals more about just how much extra space you can look forward to when staying in a serviced apartment:

“It’s certainly not uncommon to have more space in a serviced apartment, up to 30% more, which is considerable. Other key benefits is having a separate kitchen area as well as a living quarter to relax in as well as work with the same facilities you would find in a quality hotel, i.e. Satellite TV, DVD and Wi-Fi.”

In addition, many serviced apartments have dedicated workspaces, which are far better than working in a hotel lobby, or another office setup when on the road.

Most of serviced apartment workspaces come complete with their own desk and enterprise grade, high speed, and unlimited WiFi to ensure business can continue as usual – wherever you are in the world.

Greater flexibility and freedom

Coming and going as you please is possible in both serviced apartments and hotels. With a serviced apartment however, you have greater flexibility and freedom to do what suits you. Thanks to the features of a serviced apartment, you can eat in, take out, or go out.

Prepping for the next day’s business appointments is also made easy, with their fully equipped kitchens able to be used to make lunch. All you have to do is stock up on your favourite ingredients.

Our serviced apartments come with a complimentary welcome pack with all the food and drink essentials you need. We provide milk, orange juice, mineral water, bread, preserves, butter, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, crisps, and a selection of cereal.

Don’t fancy cooking? Our serviced apartments are conveniently located, so you can head out to the many cafes and restaurants on your doorstep.

Designed for short and long stays

Hotels are extremely expensive, particularly if you need to extend your business trip. As well as offering a more budget friendly alternative, serviced apartments can be rented both for the short and long term. As a result, you can adjust your trip to your business requirements easily and without breaking the bank.

Luxury for much, much less

Staying in a serviced apartment doesn’t mean saying “goodbye” to the little luxuries that come with many hotel stays. Serviced apartments provide the best of both worlds.

Enjoy a great night’s sleep in the luxurious Egyptian cotton linens, feather pillows and pocket sprung mattresses that come as standard in our apartments. Non-allergy bedding is also available upon request for an equally comfortable night’s sleep. Concentrate wholeheartedly on achieving those business aims during your trip in your pristine pad, thanks to our weekly maid service.

Enjoy a personalised stay that satisfies your professional and personal needs by liaising with us throughout your trip. We can help you discover the best local events, amenities, attractions, restaurants, meal delivery services, entertainment options, and transportation.

Settle the debate on whether a serviced apartment is really better than a hotel for yourself by booking one of our premium serviced apartments for your next business trip.
