People often opt for hotels when taking a vacation and not everyone is aware that rental apartments exist. Renting an apartment is a cost-effective and fun way to explore Edinburgh. It also feels more like a home than a hotel does. Here are some reasons why renting an apartment is the smarter choice.
You can save more
Staying in an apartment is more affordable, especially for groups. Splitting the price among the people from the group cost much less than paying for several hotel rooms. Apartments also have kitchens where you can cook meals instead of eating at expensive restaurants. Apartments usually give discounts for a longer stay as well.
Let’s say there are two couples travelling together. If they stay in a hotel and rent one room, there is no privacy. On the other hand, when they go to an apartment, they can have separate rooms. Apartments offer a range of options, depending on your preference. If you are travelling with a group of more than ten people, you can get one with more rooms. It is also great for families with children. The parents and children can have their own rooms.
Apartments let you have your own kitchen, dining room, laundry room and living room. If you are staying for days, you can stock your kitchen with food you need for the rest of your vacation. You can also travel light because a washer and dryer are available. Some apartments also have their own backyard patio or porch where you can relax and have a drink with your friends and family.
Hotels are usually built in commercial zones where it’s always busy. There are several Edinburgh apartments that are strategically located near important places such as local markets, malls and tourist attractions.
Freedom of having your own space
It makes you feel secure leaving your belongings in the apartment knowing that no one will come in while you are out enjoying the town. It does feel more like a home where you can do what your heart pleases. You won’t have to worry about maids knocking on the door anytime to clean, either.
You can get ten times the size of a hotel room at almost the same price. If you have kids, they will have more room to play around. A group of people can just spread out and pick their own space in the apartment.
Next time you visit Edinburgh, try renting an apartment. They are more affordable and easily available. You are also able to get to know the locals and go to places you are not likely to find while staying in a hotel.
