Hotel Procurement – Budget Options for Long-term Business Secondments

If you are planning on moving to London for work purposes then you are probably going to be looking at flats to rent. However, have you ever considered cheap business accommodation in London? At the Amhurst Hotel, we offer cheap rooms in North London for professionals.

There are many benefits that come with using a hotel in Islington as opposed to renting a flat in London, which let’s face it, can be quite expensive. Here are some of the beneficial aspects to consider.

Cleaning Services – Many professionals find that they simply don’t have the time to do the housework. Obviously, this can be problematic. One of the good things about paying for a hotel room rather than a flat is that there are cleaners on site who will take care of all of the cleaning for you.

Much Cheaper – Another thing that we at Amhurst Hotel can offer our guests is a cheaper accommodation option to flats or houses. When you rent a flat you will usually have to cover other bills such as council tax, water rates, electricity, and also heating. This is not the case when you are staying at a hotel.

Wi-Fi – If you are a professional working in London then it is likely that you are going to need to have internet access at home. Obviously, this can prove to be very expensive. At the Amhurst Hotel we offer our guests free Wi-Fi access, meaning that you are able to get all of your work done without having to spend a fortune on Wi-Fi.

Because our hotel is in the centre of London, local businesses are easily accessible. This means that you can use public transport in order to get from your hotel room to your place of work within as little as 20 minutes.

The Amhurst Hotel is a great place for cheap business accommodation in London. If you are looking for somewhere to stay whilst you work then this is definitely a hotel that is worth considering.

Avoid the Rush Hour Crush, Have a Hotel Crash Pad

Business travelling in London is not easy, particularly during the rush hour. Public transport is jam packed, meaning that it can take hours to get home. If you find that this is the case for you then you may wish to consider low cost hotel rooms in London, like the Amhurst Hotel.

The Amhurst Hotel is very close to the centre of London with excellent connections, making it incredibly easy to travel to and from work. It takes a maximum of twenty minutes to get from the Amhurst Hotel to the centre of London. There are many reasons as to why those on business find it useful to use cheap business accommodation rather than trying to battle the rush hour.

Transport – As mentioned above, transport in London during the rush hour is hectic. The majority of people will find that they have to stand on public transport, which can be uncomfortable, especially after a hard day of work. By staying at business accommodation in North London, business men and women need not worry about having to combat rush hour public transport all the way home.

Less Stress – Travelling during the rush hour can be incredibly stressful, especially with the amount of people travelling at the same time. By staying at the Amhurst Hotel business men and women are able to drastically reduce the stress that comes with travelling during the rush hour.

More Time – By avoiding the rush hour, business men and women are able to have more time to themselves in order to relax and enjoy everything that London has to offer. In turn, this reduces stress levels and fatigue, and also makes work far more enjoyable.

If you, like thousands of others, work in the centre of London but live elsewhere, then why not considering low cost rooms during the week. Peaceful surroundings, free WI-FI, convenient parking and bike storage – visit www.amhursthotel.co.uk for more information.

The key to an enjoyable and successful trip is to plan your budget and decide exactly how much you wish to spend on key expenditures such as accommodation.

Before you arrive, draw up a list of some of the top attractions you wish to see during your stay in London. There is something for everyone, from the iconic London Eye to the famous London Dungeons.

Also, do not forget to check out the fantastic shops that are available on Oxford and Regent Street in Central London. The streets are world famous and attract hundreds of thousands of people every year. Staying at the Amhurst Hotel will mean you have more money to blow on clothes and shoes when you hit the shops.

London is an extremely vibrant place to visit at night too. You will find a vast array of bars, clubs and restaurants on every street across the city.
