When you hear the term “short term accommodation in Cambridge” you could be forgiven for assuming bed and breakfast, or hotel living. A hotel, though, or a bed and breakfast, is more for extremely short term stays, lasting a week of less. Short term accommodation is slightly different – involving furnished apartments suitable for living in as though they were your own home.
Really, short term accommodation in Cambridge is the best alternative for people whose stay is long enough that they need somewhere homely, but too short to warrant actually going out and getting a lease on an apartment of their own. By definition, then, you’re looking at something in the order of three months or less. Once your stay increases beyond three months, it becomes more viable to take out a six month lease on a place and move in properly.
Short term accommodation in Cambridge effectively confers most of the benefits of leasing your own place, without any of the drawbacks. For instance, with short term accommodation you enter a fully furnished property, which is ready to be lived in from day one. Plus you might be offered (sometimes for a cost, sometimes as part of your package) a selection of extra services, like weekly linen change and laundering – which make living in short term accommodation even easier than living in a flat or house you have leased for yourself.
One of the key differences between leasing a flat or a house yourself, and staying in short term accommodation in Cambridge, is that some elements of hotel living make it through to the apartment lifestyle. In addition to the potential for laundry service, as noted already, you may be able to request champagne and chocolates for your arrival – for example, to celebrate the start of a new short term contract for your business – or even to take advantage of some local services as part of your price.
Some short term accommodation in Cambridge, for instance, teams up with local bicycle hire companies to give you wheels on which to ride around the city. You may also get the option to join a local gym, for a minimal weekly or monthly membership fee. Both options are ideal for people whose stay requires that they are around for more than a couple of weeks. Staying fit is one of the hardest things to do when you are constantly travelling for midterm assignments – by offering the chance to use a gym, your short term accommodation in Cambridge company is helping you to hold onto your lifestyle no matter where you go.
For people who routinely fulfil short term contracts, or who are often sent on mid to long term conferences, finding places where you can pick up the behavioural threads of your home life is very important. From gym access to the simple ability to eat sandwiches out the fridge at two in the morning, there is a lot to be said for the benefits of short term accommodation in Cambridge.
