There are several advantages to staying in a holiday apartment as opposed to booking a room in a hotel. While upmarket hotels offer great amenities, they are not always the ideal accommodation option for longer holidays, or for larger families who are travelling together.
Holiday apartments are typically available close to the city centre areas of major cities. On the Continent, Rome and Paris in particular have a large number of holiday apartments available, as do a number of other cities, and many are located in the same areas as the more upmarket hotels. You will typically have access to spacious living areas and a full kitchen with a separate dining area. Holiday apartments with two, three, and even four bedrooms – as well as multiple bathrooms – are also widely available.
The cost of staying in a holiday apartment is typically much lower than staying in a hotel suite of a comparable size. Because kitchen facilities are usually offered, you can easily visit a local grocer for food and prepare your own meals. This is quite helpful if you will be spending your holiday in an area that is filled with expensive restaurants, or are travelling with a large family on a tight budget.
