Work From Home With Ease
A serviced apartment is more than just a comfort bubble. Every apartment can become the ideal spot to work from thanks to free Wi-Fi and an area in the apartment that is perfectly suitable to work. And if you don’t want to work on the desk, then work from the cosy furniture.
But how does this help you in the post-COVID world? With necessary quarantines for travellers, national lockdowns and regional tiered systems likely to be a staple for quite some time even when the vaccines are being rolled out, being able to work from home and connect with work colleagues over Zoom and other platforms means little disruption to the 9-5 office hours. Plus, by not having the need to take public transport to the office, you can stay safe inside your apartment.
A lot of serviced apartment providers are providing “contactless” greetings and self check-ins by utilising technological resources. Other providers will have guest services crews following social distancing rules where there may be a few issues. Either way, you’re kept more than safe. The same measures apply for grocery package services too; a member of staff (or a third party) will deliver the grocery package and follow the most astute guidelines to ensure your safety.
Hotels aren’t the only accommodation option that gives you unrivalled access to your destination. Serviced apartments are always in the heart of the top cities and keep you close to essential amenities. While some access to amenities will be limited due to the prevailing pandemic, as controls and lockdowns are reduced, you can see the top attractions (albeit it with a mask on). Whether it’s a serviced apartment in London or a serviced apartment in Melbourne, Beijing or many more of the top destinations in the world, you’ll always be in the centre of all the action.
You get a whole apartment to yourself so you can self-isolate or work from home without disruption. The design of the apartments, with fully equipped kitchens and bathroom utilities, means that you can keep yourself to yourself and not have to use shared facilities like you would have to do in hotels and co-living spaces.
With no shared facilities, contactless procedures in place (or technological alternatives), free Wi-Fi to work from home and avoid crowded transport, as well as potential grocery packages to avoid the shops, serviced apartments will keep safe and secure so you don’t put yourself into unnecessary risks in the post-COVID world.
On average, serviced apartments give you 30% more space than hotels. This means that when you have to self-isolate, you will not be boxed in, and will have plenty of space to spread out and live like you would at home. Whether you want to do yoga indoors or have a lazy day in front of the TV, you can enjoy your private any way you want.
Serviced accommodation gives you the flexibility you require so you can stay as long as needs be, and book for longer when the need arises. Plus, if you have to cancel your stay at the last minute, the cancellation policies can be quite generous. Last minute extensions are no longer a hassle. So when new restrictions come in, and you have to stay in your apartment for longer, you can with absolutely no issues at all.
