Your requirements

Serviced apartments are great substitutes for hotels.

This come with everything you will need to feel at home. So always check if the package as items such as microwave, oven, laundry unit, dish washer etc. Besides this check for air conditioning, heating facilities, pluming, internet, security, other kitchen appliances like plates, cups etc.

The timing

Always remember to check the reviews of past travelers. With the increase in tourism serviced apartments are now available form loads of realtors. So first thing you should check for is their online presence and then check for customer reviews, check out the galleries and ratings available. If the photo and ratings are not available at all then you may want to reconsider.

The location

Remember that knowing everything upfront will always save you from extra costs and hassle do be informed before making your booking.
