When people think of serviced hotels, they might think of small lodgings, obsolete furniture, and most of all, disappointing aesthetics. Indeed, serviced hotels have become experts in luring guests with their reasonable (and often ridiculously low) prices. Serviced hotels oftentimes promote facilities like free WiFi access and 24- hour services that should be considered more as necessities rather than privileges supported in all hotels. Think of it this way: why would anyone, even those who travel for business purposes, decide to check into a hotel for its fast wireless connection when restaurants, cafes or malls can also provide it?
