As anyone who has been there can tell you, Melbourne is a fantastic destination filled with beautiful architecture, a thriving nightlife and an overabundance of arts, culture and fine dining. With that said, one thing that often goes unconsidered when planning the perfect holiday is where you will be basing yourself for the duration of your trip.
There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the ideal accommodation for your getaway. To help you make what can be a tricky planning decision, here are RNR’s top tips for choosing a place to stay in Melbourne.
How many people will you be staying with?
The nightmare scenario of trying to book accommodation for a group or family, finding out that your chosen destination doesn’t facilitate everyone can quickly put a damper on your enthusiasm.
Ensuring beforehand that the facilities are capable of accommodating you before your arrival is an absolute must. This can become more difficult in areas where events or festivals are taking place, which is why the earlier you book your stay, the better chance you will have avoiding inconvenience.
At RNR Melbourne, our spacious serviced apartments come in a variety of sizes from stylish studio spaces to full two-bedroom home units, ensuring that you will always have what you need when planning a group trip.
Your family trip to the Royal Melbourne Show may not have the breezy excitement you expected if you’re forced to try and navigate your way there from Werribee. This is especially true for those unfamiliar with Victoria’s expansive transit landscape, as it can occasionally be difficult to determine the difficulty of travel from maps alone.
To get the full Melbourne experience, it’s important to find accommodation that is convenient for your expected journey. RNR has centrally-located services apartments in several Australian cities, ensuring that you are always a mere stone’s throw away from the fun and festivities these areas have on offer.
There are a wide array of hotels, motels, hostels, and B&Bs across the city. However, with that amount of choice, the consistency of quality between options is never assured. Many of these facilities are designed with budget in mind, allowing backpackers and underfunded travelers access to the basic amenities on their trip. With that said, for those that are willing to spend a little bit more, there are options that offer more luxurious living at a very reasonable rate. Serviced apartments offer the convenience of a hotel with upkeep, cleaning, and assistance, without the stifling confines often found in other short-term accommodation services.
This brings us onto another important factor…
All of the luxury in the world doesn’t mean too much if it takes up the majority of your finances come trip time. You should be spending your time and money enjoying your time in a wonderful new location, not worrying about where you rest your head at the end of the day. That’s not to say that you can’t get the same caliber of location for a lower price, it just means that you have to put in the research when making that decision.
While it may take a little extra time, having the right accommodation for your stay will vastly improve the experience. To book a luxury serviced apartment for your next trip, contact RNR Melbourne today!
