Business travel is a global industry, and each year, the number of business-related trips increases. This surge in travel has directly impacted the hotel industry throughout Germany and the rest of the EU, as more and more hotel rooms are booked to accommodate business travel needs.
However, as workers’ stays become longer, pushing over the two week mark, travelers grow restless staying in the smaller, impersonal confines of a hotel room. This feeling of discomfort led to the birth of the serviced apartment industry, (also referred to as corporate lodging, furnished apartments, temporary housing, and corporate housing) where travelers could feel at home in spacious living quarters, even when they’re away from home for longer periods of time. Outlined below are a few of the many perks of staying in a Dwellworks’ serviced apartment.
1- Full Kitchens
At hotels, kitchens are either non-existent or come in the form of small kitchenettes. This makes cooking meals nearly impossible, as space is limited and basic kitchen necessities are not always provided.
Throughout Germany, Dwellworks’ furnished apartments all come with standard-sized, fully-stocked kitchens. This is great for travelers staying over a longer period of time, as they are able to cook meals at their own convenience. Kitchens also cut down on food-related costs, since travelers do not need to eat meals at restaurants or order carry-out as often.
2- More Square Footage
The average hotel room is between 330 to 375 square feet. Depending on the size of the furniture in the room, this could leave little space for comfortably lounging, and even less space to entertain a visitor.
Dwellworks’ single-bedroom temporary housing apartments are double or triple this size, depending on location, meaning there is plenty of space for you, a guest, and maybe even a pet, which brings us to our next point…
Most serviced apartment providers are more lenient with pets, and we’re no exception. While there may still be a pet fee or security deposit, these are generally much lower in price, or even refundable, than the fees charged for bringing along your furry friends to a hotel.
4- Residential Settings
In hotels, visitors live among other visitors. There is no sense of community since people are constantly moving in and out of the building. Furthermore, hotels are often located near airports, in high-traffic areas, or away from residential neighborhoods.
Dwellworks’ serviced apartments offer individuals a relaxed home environment, situated in safe, residential communities that are close to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. This is helpful to business travelers since they are living among the general population and can have the opportunity be a part of the local community.
5- Separate Bedrooms
Often times, hotels are set up to be more like studio apartments. Half-height walls or open-concept floor plans prevent travelers from having an ample amount of space, or even a bedroom separate from the kitchen.
All Dwellworks serviced apartments have separate bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, meaning plenty of personal space, privacy, and even room for guests.
6- A Warm Welcome
A Dwellworks team member is always available to greet and welcome guests at every one of our properties, to familiarize them with the apartment and area, and to answer any questions. Spa-quality toiletries, along with a guide to living in the unit and the local area are also included with every stay.
7- Complimentary WiFi
Wifi is included and complimentary in all our furnished apartments. No hidden or additional costs here!
8- Competitive Pricing
Many people often assume that hotels are cheaper than leasing a temporary housing apartment, but this isn’t the case! By staying in our serviced apartments, guests get more for their money, since our properties come with many of the same amenities one would find at a hotel with double the amount of space. Those are some substantial savings that any traveler, and their company, will certainly appreciate.
Forget the long hotel stay and live like a local! Whether on short-term or long-term assignment, embrace the German experience in one of our comfortable, fully-furnished serviced apartments. Are you in need of a home away from home in Germany? Get in touch today!
