There are great tools available online for FREE, such as Zoom, that keeps you connected with your team via conferencing and screen sharing.

- Home Life
Conceivably, the most significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the UK is the disruption to our day-to-day schedules. Working remotely and from home where possible has been advised, so several firms across the UK are forced to adopt this strategy or face a closed down period. Fortunately, the rental businesses are still functional amidst the lockdown of hotels, bars, cafes, leisure centers, theatres, and night clubs in an attempt to limit social gatherings.
Are you working remotely or working from home, opting for a serviced apartment makes more sense, especially if you want to remain productive as ever – in your own space. Enjoy that home life experience associated with hotels or guest house offers.
Usually, a serviced apartment is more cost-efficient to use than to use a hotel, especially if you need a space as a team or company. For instance, a group of persons coming in for contract can have an offer for a two-bedroom apartment and share the apartment, otherwise thеу wоuld hаvе tо gеt twо hоtеl rооmѕ.
Businesses also mitigate expenses; реорlе will сооk thеіr own fооd rather thаn gо оut eating. Thеу will save оn lаundrу – all these little things thаt you mіght nоt consider. Moreover, your team can have such a luxury apartment for as long as the contract stays up as well as have the home to home life experience alongside – a week, a month, or even months!
- Space and Privacy
There’s nothing as cozy as having enough space and privacy to yourself. Unlike hotel rooms, serviced apartments offer so much more – lots of space such as room to cook, work, relax, and sleep. Moreover, if you will need to stay for a long time, it’s better to consider a serviced apartment to avoid getting suffocated.
A typical serviced apartments offer at least 30% larger rooms than hotels. So, if you go for a one-bedroom apartment, you can get twice the size of a standard hotel room. This fact explains the more reasons travelers prefer rental homes to hotels.
On the other hand, you enjoy a higher degree of privacy. You can retain your privacy without any interruptions, even with the weekly housekeeping service providers. This is not something you may enjoy if you opted for a hotel.
- Access to Modern Amenities
Serviced apartments are guaranteed to have necessary and even luxury modern facilities you need for comfortable living – just like your home! From providing spacious air-conditioned rooms to the availability of different gadgets & devices; this is something you’re not guaranteed of in hotel rooms. Also, there are home automation services, a cooker, a TV, a microwave, and so on.
All these еѕѕеntіаl equipment mау nоt bе аvаіlаblе іn hоtеl rооmѕ.
More business travelers are adopting the concept of serviced apartments via online booking platforms like Airbnb. Provided you get a serviced space that meets all your home requirements; you’ll be guaranteed for a value for money.
