Why Choose Serviced Apartments Over Hotels?

April 26, 2019

There’s no shortage of choice when it comes to finding accommodation in Sydney, but not all options offer the same advantages. Before you book a standard hotel room, consider the benefits of booking serviced apartments in the Sydney CBD and Parramatta instead. You’ll have the following advantages for your stay…



No matter if you’re in town for two nights or for long-term corporate stays, it’s always better to have enough space to stretch out and relax. You could be spending your stay in a stuffy hotel room or in a spacious apartment with your choice of studio, one, two or three bedrooms. That means a more relaxed stay and better sleep quality – especially if someone in the family is a snorer!


While Sydney hotels will often have regular servicing, the convenience of a serviced apartment goes far beyond this level. You’ll have the benefit of daily servicing and fresh linen as well as your own kitchen, laundry facilities and often even a gym and swimming pool within the building. You can keep up your fitness, health and wellbeing, plus have clean clothes every day. What’s not to love about that?


Hotel rooms and serviced apartments both offer excellent locations close to restaurants, nightlife and shopping, however a serviced apartment typically offers a far better stay in the same neighbourhood. At APX Hotels Apartments we’ve carefully chosen our Darling Harbour, Parramatta and World Square locations to give you space as well as city connection, so you can walk to local highlights and the best of Sydney’s dining hotspots.


What makes an accommodation option feel completely relaxing? Space, a high standard of cleanliness and home comforts like free Wi-Fi and table and chairs that are actually comfortable to use. We don’t usually live in a shoebox disconnected from the outside world – so don’t put up with it while you’re away from home. With a serviced apartment you’ll have your own fully functional living room, kitchen, workspace and more.


It may be a surprise to find that you can book a two-bedroom apartment for the same price as a hotel room in Sydney, but this can often be the case. Hotels must cover the cost of their restaurants, concierge, room services and other extras that just aren’t necessary when you have your own complete apartment in a central location. Corporate travellers and leisure travellers alike will both commonly find better value in a serviced apartment, particularly for medium and long term stays.

So – before you book that small hotel room, be sure to look into serviced apartments in Parramatta and the Sydney CBD first. You may just come to expect space, convenience and excellent value everywhere you travel.
