TOP 10 REASONS WHY A FURNISHED RENTAL IS BETTER THAN A HOTEL
1. Furnished rental apartments are considerably less expensive than hotels, especially for business travels that last for more than a week. When you factor in all the hidden costs that you’re paying on top of that hotel daily rate, this price difference would be very clear.
2. Size does matter! Rented apartments provide the same amount of personal space as one’s own apartment. It is easier to invite more friends and family members over for a celebration or event, if necessary. Most hotels would not allow this.
3. Hotel travellers occasionally need to bear high expenses on the car parking facility at hotels. On the contrary, most rented apartments come with free car parking and did you forget about your visitors parking? That’s because that was free as well.parking
4. When it comes to entertainment, furnished rental apartments are no less equipped than hotels. All apartments are equipped with DSTV Satellite TV which offer many movie, sport, cooking and news channels. Also you have the option in an apartment to select a Premium Package which offers even more channels than a hotel could ever offer you.
5. Business travelers and relocated employees are often required to work from home. Apartments have the option of installing cheaper and faster fibre lines to ensure that your work is never compromised.
6. Laundry bills at hotels often turn out to be quite high, especially for business travelers. Apartments are equipped with in-suite washer dryers so saving you lots of laundry bills.
7. One of the biggest differences in hotel living vs. furnished suites is the convenience of a fully equipped kitchen in furnished rentals. From dining sets to cutlery, toaster, coffeemaker, full size fridge and oven, you will be saving in more than one way – eating healthy and much more economical than eating out.
8. Similar to hotels, furnished rentals provide excellent recreational facilities. You can go for a swim, play a game of tennis/squash or go to the restaurant or gym depending on the apartment building you select.
9. Location is a huge advantage for people who rent furnished apartments. Furnished apartments are located close to all major shopping malls, public transport, hospitals, restaurants, cafes and parks, you will be a short distance away from all major highways and the Gautrain/Johannesburg International Airport.
10. Apartments also have an in-house maintenance crew and a very friendly and helpful staff that would ensure that they make you feel right at home.
