Airbnb has been making waves within the tourism industry for quite some time now. 

However, with recent backlash and legislation changes coming into practice in order to restrict the distribution of Airbnb apartments is it really the best option.

We strongly believe that guests safety and satisfaction is priority and have faith in the fact that our serviced apartments can guarantee this.

So why exactly are serviced apartments the better option?

 

Cardiff will play host to the eagerly anticipated UEFA Champions League Finals this June.

Paired with the UEFA Champions Festival from 1-4 June the event is expected to attract the largest crowd the city has ever seen.

As to be expected, Cardiff has put in place precautions to manage crowd control and minimise security risks. This includes the closure of certain roads throughout the city centre over the duration of the event.

The map below shows the extent of the road closures within the city and the dates that the closures will be in effect.

The month of March has been a very successful one for A Space in the City.

First and foremost, we are delighted to announce that we have retained our ASAP Quality Accredited Operator UK status. We cannot thank our team enough for their efforts over this busy period as it demonstrates the high standard of service we offer. Once again, our accreditation reiterates how much we value the need to book with a company you can trust and how we are 'a safe pair of hands' within the sector.

When making your travel plans, whether for business or leisure – or combining the two into a ‘bleisure’ trip by adding extra days to a business stay and perhaps being joined by friends or family – serviced apartments are proving to be an increasingly popular choice, offering as they do added flexibility, relaxation and space over much traditional hotel accommodation.

1. Comfort is key

When travelling for such a long period of time the last thing you want to do is spend it uncomfortable and miserable. Dress in comfortable clothing with a few layers so you can adjust your temperature as you fly.

 

Despite the challenging weather of the last few weeks, Spring is approaching.

We’re certain we’re not in the minority when we say we are looking forward to longer days and a change in the seasons.

Luckily there’s plenty going on in Swansea and Cardiff this Spring to keep us all entertained.

Whether it be days to entertain the little ones over the Easter Holidays or alternative fundraising events there's certainly something for everyone.

 

Having a great team has been the driving force behind A Space in the City's success over the last 12 years.

As a result, we believe it’s important that you get to know a bit about us.

Starting off our ‘Employee Spotlight’ feature is Magda. Magda is one of our valued Guest Service’s Team Members and regularly the first face you will see when staying with us in Cardiff.

Describe your role within the team:

As a guest services team member my main focus is customer satisfaction but I also believe going above and beyond within my role.

Here at A Space In The City we feel very passionate about the city of Cardiff and we think it's only fair that we share with you what we love about Cardiff.

Staying fit while travelling away for business can be difficult.

Schedules can be tight and sometimes the last thing you want to do after a busy day at work is head down to the gym.

It’s not however impossible and with the help of a few guidelines staying healthy while away can become second nature.

Pack for fitness

The first step is ensuring you pack all your essential fitness gear. While it increases your luggage it eliminates that initial excuse.

The end of the year is approaching and we are - albeit in a rather cliché way – taking a moment to reflect on 2016.

For many 2016 has been a year of change with huge economic and political shake-ups happening across the world, leaving us to question what will happen next.

Here at A Space in the City we are no different. Change has been a prominent feature of 2016 with a focus on growth within the serviced apartment sector.
