Airbnb can seem like the obvious option when planning a low-cost trip to a new city. There is the potential to meet some local people in the form of hosts and get their advice and suggestions on what to do in the area. There are also some truly unique properties available on the rental service. But is Airbnb truly the better option over serviced apartments?

Cleanliness

People's standards of cleanliness vary from person to person. What one individual considers very clean, another might consider sub-par. When you book on Airbnb you are not guaranteed that the property, room or even the bed sheets have been properly or professionally cleaned. There are no set guidelines for cleanliness laid down by the company so it is up to each host to clean to their own (varying) standards after each guest.

When you book a serviced apartment you are guaranteed each room, bed and suite are cleaned to extremely high standards. This goes across the board, not just in our Birmingham property but every single one worldwide. Our housekeeping staff are trained to the highest standards and each suite is checked by a manager before guests check-in.

Safety

There can be varying safety procedures between Airbnb and a serviced apartment. There are no compulsory safety procedures or equipment needed to let your property on Airbnb. It is up to each individual host to ensure that there is an evacuation route and fire safety equipment should the worst happen. This may or may be the case as Airbnb don’t actually check.

Luckily you don’t have to worry about this when you book with PREMIER SUITES. Our buildings are modern and conform to the highest safety standards. Each apartment is fitted with fire-retardant materials and there are plenty of fire extinguishers and fire blankets available. All of our staff are fully fire-safety trained with regular alarm testing done throughout the year.

Customer Service

Airbnb hosts are just regular people who want to make extra money renting their property. They have no special training in customer care to help them handle complaints, negative comments or criticism. They are often unavailable in person so should any issues arise during your stay, you need to contact them via the app.

When you stay in PREMIER SUITES, you are guaranteed the highest standards in customer care and service. We only hire efficient, friendly staff who are trained to the highest standards to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you need suggestions on where to eat, drink or visit or have a recommendation that could make our property even better, we are always available to help or just have a friendly chat.

If you are considering a trip to Birmingham, don’t skimp on your high standards. Our competitive rates along with our quality rooms should make us your number one choice for a short or extended stay in our wonderful city. To get the best available rate, cut out the middleman and book directly on our website. We look forward to welcoming you.
