Serviced apartments are ideal whether you’re visiting a city for business or taking a trip with your family. Of course, you’ll have a few options from which to choose, and one of the most common questions people ask themselves when looking for a serviced apartment is whether to opt for a one-bedroom or a studio.
The difference between them is easy enough to explain. In a studio, the bedroom and living area are essentially one room. In a one-bedroom, the sleeping area is separated in its own smaller room. There’s no definitive right answer – to choose between them, you have to consider the following factors.
Cost is always going to be a key concern when you’re booking accommodation. One-bedroom serviced apartments aren’t particularly expensive, but you’ll naturally tend to pay less when you opt for a studio. Of course, other factors can come into play, but studios are generally the budget option.
In some cases, a one-bed will be much the same size as a studio, but they are usually a little larger. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your serviced apartment, or if you have a lot of luggage, it might be best to book a one-bed instead of a studio – if you do book a studio, look for a large one.
Some people book a serviced apartment when they go on holiday, which means they won’t spend much of their time there. However, you could be visiting to see family or for business, in which case you’ll probably spend a lot longer in your accommodation. If you’re going to be working or entertaining, having your sleeping area separate from your living area can be nice.
How long are you staying in your serviced apartment? This should be a key concern when you’re trying to choose between a one-bed and a studio. If you’ll be staying for longer than a week or so, it’s nice to have a one-bedroom that feels homier. If you’re only going to be staying for a few days, a studio should be just fine.
