How to get the most out of your city retreat

We all want to get the most out of our holidays; most of us only get a handful a year to truly enjoy ourselves. Unfortunately, this pressure can sometimes lead to us failing to get the most out of our vacations.

 Follow these simple steps to make sure you get the most out of your trip and don’t spend the whole time inside your accommodation on your city retreat. 

Step 1: Have a plan 

Whilst there is definitely such as thing as too much preparation, having a rough idea of what you want to do and see when you are on your city retreat will help you get maximum enjoyment. Pick a serviced apartment that is close to the sights that you want to see and you will cut down on your travel time and costs. 

Step 2: Find the right accommodation for your city break 

As stated previously when it comes to picking your serviced apartment, it really is location, location, location. If you are staying close to the city limits you may find yourself having to take public transport to the city centre. Finding a serviced apartment centrally located with the amenities you want will add tremendously to the quality of your stay. 

That being said, centrally located city accommodation can be quite pricey. If you find a good-sized apartment in a less pricey area you could save yourself a bit of money without compromising on the quality of your city retreat. 

Step 3: Leave in some chill time 

This is a mistake that many people make when they are booking their city retreat; it is easy to get sucked into the trap of trying to cram as much in as you can.  If you leave some time spare not only will you be better rested, you will also have more time to enjoy your serviced apartment.

Step 4: Take lots of photos! 

This step may not have too much of an impact on your city retreat at the time, but if you take loads of photos you will have plenty to look back on and help to create fond memories of your trip away.
