You need to put a little more time into booking your serviced apartment when you’re travelling as a family. To make sure you select the right place, look for these four things.

  1. Plenty of Entertainment

When you’re travelling with kids, you need to make sure they’ll be entertained when you get home from all the sights and attractions. Serviced apartments should be able to meet that need, but it’s always best to check. Things like a collection of board games or the latest games console can be most welcome.

  1. Good Outside Space

It doesn’t matter how great your serviced apartment is, younger kids are eventually going to want to go outside and burn some energy.  Of course, you’ll be out seeing the sights during the day, but it’s always nice to go out in the evening so your kids can enjoy the night air and play around outdoors. Many serviced apartments don’t have any outdoor area, but you can still find ones that do easily enough when you book ahead.

  1. Full Kitchen

Nearly all serviced apartments will provide some kind of kitchen, but far too many cut corners by only providing the bare necessities. When you’re travelling as a family, you’ll want a full kitchen to ensure you can quickly whip up breakfast, put something together for lunch, and make evening meals instead of going out each night. Before you book, check the serviced apartment in question has a fully-fitted kitchen with all the appliances you’re used to.

  1. Nice Location

The location of your serviced apartment is always going to be important, but it becomes even more so when you’re travelling with younger children. They won’t be happy taking the bus or a taxi in and out of the city centre, and they’ll get tired out more easily if you have long walks to deal with. Look at exactly where you’ll be going, then find a serviced apartment that’s conveniently located.
