The Security Benefits of Serviced Apartments

Security should always be a key concern when you’re picking out accommodation. Could be you’re visiting a city for business and bringing important client work with you. You might have expensive jewellery, or you might simply be travelling with the kids and want to make sure they are as safe as possible.

Regardless of why security is a priority, you’ll find yourself better off in a serviced apartment than a hotel, and here are just a few reasons why.

Employee Accountability

One of the main security issues faced by hotels is that lots of different staff members can come into your room. Whether for maintenance or for everyday housekeeping, there are going to be people going in and out all the time, and others can gain entry using their own pass keys. The problem here is that staff members can take items from your room and still maintain plausible deniability. After all, there’s no way of proving it was them. Your serviced apartment won’t be accessed regularly by anyone except you, so this isn’t a problem with which you’ll need to concern yourself.

Fewer People in and Out

There are lots of people that come and go from a hotel. In fact, someone can walk in right off the street and pass by reception when things are busy. That means that criminals can gain access to your room with surprising ease. Equally important is the fact that it’s very easy for children to go missing when there are lots of other families about.

CCTV Coverage

Serviced apartment providers take security seriously, so they’ll maintain CCTV surveillance across the property. Any non-guests will be recognized as such quickly, and you’ll enjoy stronger peace of mind knowing that entry-points and exits are properly covered by the appropriate monitoring equipment.
