4 of the best accommodation types available in Bristol, from serviced apartments to Hostels
Finding the right accommodation when you are staying in a new city can be a challenge especially if It is an area or country that you are unfamiliar with. In addition to having to find somewhere that is well located, you also have to evaluate the accommodation in terms of size, budget and amenities. If you are planning a short stay in Bristol, here are some of the different types of accommodation that are available and which one you should go for.
- Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts
The hotel industry has been around for centuries and the long-established chains have had plenty of time to perfect their craft. Good options in Bristol include the Hilton and the Radisson Blu. Bed and Breakfasts are also located throughout the city.
You know what you are getting in a hotel or bed and breakfast, however, if you want more amenities then perhaps picking a serviced option is the better choice.
- Serviced apartments
The next option you have for your Bristol accommodation is a serviced apartment. These are fully furnished apartments that can be rented for a variety of different lengths and include a lot of different kinds of amenities. Many chose these over a traditional hotel either because they are planning a longer stay or are looking for additional features including a working kitchen and express laundry service.
The great thing about serviced apartments is that they are located conveniently around the city of Bristol. You can stay in the centre or further out in the suburban areas like Clifton and Filton. The variety does not end there as you are limited only by your budget in terms of the size of your serviced apartment. The different options on the market vary in terms of the number of on suites, bedrooms and the size of the garden.
- Youth hostels
If you are planning a short trip to Bristol as part of a larger travelling holiday then a youth hostel could be the perfect accommodation for you. There are plenty of different options to choose from centrally in the city and they all come with their own features and unique selling points.
One of the most popular options to break into the market is Airbnb. This accommodation finder site has roots in cities all around the world and gives you a good platform from which you can find the best place to stay. The diversity in options is one of the platforms best selling points as they host a variety of accommodation types including large homes and smaller serviced apartments.
Try and get accommodation which suits your type of stay
When deciding on the type of accommodation that you want to stay in, we recommend matching the type of stay to the venue. If you are travelling solo and are willing to ‘slum it’ then a hostel could be the best bet. However, if you are looking to enjoy a longer, stress-free stay then a good quality serviced apartment would be a much better choice.
