You are all set to relocate to and want to reserve a furnished apartment but not sure on the exact location or what to take with you. You should ask all sorts of questions about the Extended Stay Apartment.
An above average furnished apartment will have everything you need. It will have a fully equipped kitchen to serve at least six persons. The kitchen should include all the utensils which are required for making food for at least four to six persons. It should have two frying pans, one medium sized saucepan and one small saucepan. In addition to this, it should also be equipped with crockery and cutlery for four to six persons. Moreover, it should also have cutting knives, cutting board, cooking spoons etc. A toaster, microwave and a coffee maker are essential items in a hotel alternative.
A good furnished apartment will also have three days' supply of consumables like the paper towels, soaps etc. The apartment should have two soaps per toilet. Moreover, each toilet should be equipped with two fresh towels. An iron and an ironing stand are also very important. You should also study the website of these furnished apartments and carefully look at the pictures of their furnished suites. Some of the high class operators have videos of their apartments. If a website does not have pictures or a video of their apartments, this means they have something to hide. You should avoid such companies.
On the entertainment side, the apartment should have a decent sized TV. Basic cable is also provided by the extended stay apartments. Some of the upscale furnished apartments also have DVD players. A cordless phone is also essential. A decent furnished apartment should also have high speed wireless internet.
There is also no harm in requesting the operator if they have a grocery delivery service, where basic grocery is purchased and kept in the kitchen before the arrival of the guests. When traveling with families and especially infants, essential grocery items such as milk and breakfast stuff are required immediately upon check in.
Another important aspect is the underground parking. You should inquire if the operator has underground parking or not. The underground parking comes in handy in places where it snows.
