Corporate Accommodation In London and Beyond
Business travel has become more and more common over the last decade, thanks in part to globalisation. It’s possible for companies to have international partners, suppliers, stakeholders, and consumers – and for managers to need to fly to another part of the world to discuss a potential business venture or check on a project. London’s as Europe’s financial centre has primarily seen a steep rise of corporate accommodation options. Corporate accommodation in London offers everything from luxury penthouses in Mayfair to family accommodation in Richmond. Choose budget accommodation at Liverpool Street Station, executive accommodation in Canary Wharf with gym, concierge and balcony or pet friendly apartments in Notting Hill.
While hotels used to be the preferred corporate accommodation for business travellers, nowadays serviced apartments are better! Particularly if you need extended stay accommodation you will appreciate the space of a serviced apartment. Hotels are great if you only plan to stay for a couple of days. However, if you’re staying longer we don’t recommend booking a hotel room. Hotels are generally not a cost-effective solution in this case and rarely provide you with a homely feel. Serviced apartments in London or beyond are most definitely the best corporate accommodation options. With the sheer variety of serviced apartments on offer you should definitely find something that suits your taste.
Here are the advantages of booking corporate accommodation in London and beyond:
Corporate accommodation is cost-effective
Every company needs to protect its costs. Since business trips can become expensive–airfare, daily food allowances, and miscellaneous fees like entertaining expenses all add up–it makes sense to find ways to save without sacrificing comfort. Apartments to let offer long-term rates. The kitchen also allows you to cook your own food, which is another way to stretch limited budgets.
Corporate accommodation comes fully furnished and is more comfortable
The standard hotel room is a spartan affair – a bed, table, a telly, and a phone. This sparse atmosphere can only be endured for a few days. As business trips often stretch out into a week or more, you will start to get a sense of being boxed in. Homesickness sets in, and the austerity of the room only adds to the feeling of being alone in a country, thousands of miles away from home.
An apartment to let, on the other hand, helps recreate the sense of being in a home away from home. Rooms are relatively larger, and are beautifully furnished. This gives a sense of space, and the cosy atmosphere provides a sanctuary of comfort after a long day at work, thousands of miles away from family and friends.
Corporate accommodation has convenient amenities
Business travellers have a lot to do. That’s why a private bathroom and regular housekeeping are so essential. The price of corporate accommodation includes cleaning, private shower facilities, a work desk or dining table and Wifi Internet. Ultimately corporate accommodation should offer today’s modern business travellers a home from home; a comfortable home in which you can work and live for a night, a week, a month or longer.
