Apartment Hotels are a great option for family holidays, and business people travelling in groups and staying for several days. The key benefits of apartment hotels are they have a kitchen facilities and usually laundry facilities in the room meaning you can often lower the cost of your stay by cooking meals in your room. Depending on the apartment they also generally offer more space than a traditional hotel room with one, two and three bedroom apartments typically having a separate lounge area as well as a usable (but usually small) kitchen. Families enjoy the privacy having a seperate bedroom for the kids with a communal lounge and dining area instead of two double beds in one room as you often find in a hotel.
