Travelling With A Family: Why Apartments Might Be A Better Choice Than Hotels

September 23, 2023

Have you ever travelled with your family and stayed in a hotel? If so, you know that it can be a bit cramped, especially if you have children and even teenagers with you. But what if there was another solution available that gave both space and comfort, like at home with all the convenience of staying in a hotel?

Apartments provide the ideal lodging option for families travelling together. It offers both space and comfort, similar to being at home, while being more cost-effective than hotels, which can let you save more on your travel expenses.

Here are just a few of the reasons why spacious apartments are a better choice than hotels for families travelling together:

Space and comfort

Hotels often provide studio and one-bedroom rooms that may feel too cramped when travelling as a family, while spacious apartments allow more breathing room and relaxation – especially important with children needing space to run around and play. Furthermore, spacious apartments often come equipped with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms so everyone can find their own private sanctuary within the larger living space.


Spacious apartments provide the best of both worlds: space and comfort of home combined with hotel convenience. And with your own kitchen in every apartment, you are free to prepare meals or snacks when desired – perfect for sleeping in or waking up early to explore the city.

Most apartment amenities also feature washer and dryer sets, balconies or patios, swimming pools, and even fitness centers for everyone’s convenience.

It is like you never left your house, but you did and stayed in an upgraded home in a more stress-free environment.

Cost savings

Renting an apartment may be more cost-effective for more extended stays than hotels, especially when booking multiple hotel rooms that can make your family feel disconnected from each other. Why incur unnecessary additional costs when you can enjoy plenty of space at a fraction of the price?

Flexibility and convenience

Apartments offer the flexibility and convenience of a home away from home. You can come and go as you please without being tied down by strict hotel check-in/check-out times, giving your family more freedom with their schedule. Plus, staying in an apartment means forgoing frequent interactions in hotel lobbies and constant room services! Everything you might ever need can be found right in your cozy apartment.

Authentic travel experience

Apartment rentals provide travellers with an authentic travel experience by being located in neighborhoods often unexplored by tourists, offering insights into local customs and lifestyles that enhance the travel experience. You also get a chance to witness how locals live, where they eat, and even build meaningful relationships with them!

Travelling with family can be a delightful experience, yet can be chaotic if you do not choose an accommodation that ticks everyone’s boxes. No matter the size of your family, staying in an apartment offers an ideal combination of space, comfort, and immersion into local culture. Consider booking an apartment for your next family trip and see where it takes you. After all, a family that travels together, (should) stay together.
