Why Renting a Furnished Apartment Might be Best for You

For the vast majority of people in search of a mid-range accommodation for their holiday, the first option that comes to mind is a hotel. However, there is an alternative that not only works out to be cheaper but has better included amenities: a furnished apartment.Why Renting a Furnished Apartment Might be Best for You

The positive things about a furnished property include:

  • It saves tenants money since they don’t need to buy furniture.
  • Furnished property rent more quickly than an unfurnished property, because (generally) more residents are looking for furnished lettings.
  • When the tenancy ends, the owner will still own the furniture and can use it himself/herself, or offer it to future tenants.
  • A fully furnished apartment offers the privacy and comforts of home.
  • More organized space, which is one of the biggest advantages, particularly if you’re staying in the same city for an extended period of time.
  • You get an equipped kitchen ready to use for cooking. You may not be planning on doing much cooking during your vacation, but a kitchen with a fridge, microwave and cutlery can be perfect for heating up leftovers from restaurant meals, storing late night snacks or drinks, and whipping up a quick breakfast. It’s also great if you have special dietary requirements, eat meals at a different time than the locals, or if you’re traveling with children.
  • You have the ability to get your laundry done right at your fingertips . While most hotels will do your laundry, it’s pretty expensive. Furnished apartments will often come with an in-room washer and dryer, which means you can wash your clothes for free – perfect if you like to pack light or have children who dirty their clothes quickly.

The furnished apartments are, therefore, far more affordable than hotels (even without factoring in the money you’d save cooking your own meals or doing your own laundry), and while some require you to book months or weeks in advance to get a good deal, our apartments always provide a good price to quality ratio.
