In The Middle Of a Move? Considered Serviced Apartments?


Moving can be incredibly stressful, expensive and time-consuming process. You have to execute a delicate balance between moving out of your old flat or house, ensuring it’s cleaned up, and moving into your new flat or house. If your lease is running out or you are selling your apartment, it’s likely that you will need to be out by a certain date. But what do you do if your new place is not ready for you to move in by that date? Well, you could choose to stay in a hotel for a week or two; however, that can be incredibly expensive. Also, hotels are generally going to be smaller, so you may not have much space for cooking and relaxing. A serviced apartment is the best way to go. Short-term apartments have several advantages over hotels for short stays. Here are just a few of the advantages.

Price Comparison

When you are comparing prices, there is no real contest in terms of value for money; serviced apartments are the only option. In my opinion, hotels are designed for two or three night stays at the most. In London they tend to have incredibly high prices per night due to the fact that the majority of their clientele only need a room for a couple of nights. These prices can be justified if you’re having a weekend away, but not if you’re looking for interim accommodation between the move; it’s just not feasible.


Serviced apartments in London, such as the ones from, give you much more value for you money. They are designed for visiting businesses, long holidays and are also perfect for people who are in the middle of a move. Compared to a hotel, you receive so much more for more or less the same price, if not less.

Cooking Comparison

Cooking your own food is a great way to save yourself a bit of money. However, if you are in between moves and staying in a hotel, it’s unlikely that you will get the opportunity to cook at your leisure. Hotels typically do not offer the amenities needed to cook a full meal, which means you will have to either eat out or order a take away. Whilst this is by no means a bad thing, it can end up costing you an arm and a leg if you’re staying at the hotel for an extended period of time. With a serviced apartment, you will get a decent kitchen space that gives you the freedom to cook your own meals. Not only will you be able to save costs, you’ll also get to eat whatever you want.



Serviced apartments also tend to have on-site laundry services, dry cleaning, high-speed Internet and state-of-the-art television services. These services are perfect if you are in the middle of a move. You can get your clothes laundered and pressed, making things that little bit easier for you. Moving can be hectic and unsettling. With a comfortable serviced apartment, you can get that little bit of peace and quiet when you need it most.
