The needs of today’s business traveller have dramatically transformed in recent years. No less for those seeking Nicosia accommodation in the business capital of Cyprus or at other hotels around the world. In one recent business survey, more than half (58 per cent) of respondents said they actively search for boutique hotels.
We live in an age of the “lifestyle experience”. Beyond home, food, clothes, sport, design, culture and leisure, for example, it particularly extends to the annual vacation, a mini holiday or even just a weekend break. Businessmen and women, too, increasingly opt for preferences that tick all the modern lifestyle experience boxes when choosing a hotel.
Nicosia accommodation: staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow
While Nicosia and Larnaca saw the number of 1-Star and 2-Star hotels increase by almost 90 per cent over the last decade (Cyprus Hospitality Report, 2019), the interest in staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow and spread. In new research by Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), nearly two thirds (65 per cent) of business travellers sought out “lifestyle” hotels, and 50 per cent first checked consumer review websites and other sources for previous guests’ experiences.
The survey also reveals key items which addresses business traveller preferences, such as a hotel’s proximity, personalised experience, free and fast Wi-Fi, healthy-eating options, and a setting that both helps to boost productivity as well as to relax and unwind.
Select number of Nicosia hotels ideal for reduced travel time
It’s no surprise that convenience provided by a hotel’s location and proximity is always a high priority. A select number of Nicosia hotels, for example, are found nearby to key business, government, academic and cultural institutions at the centre of the capital. Ideal for reduced travel time and increased productivity.
One important aspect of a business person’s personalised experience, absolutely now expected, is a hotel’s technology that will streamline from start to finish. Not only at the booking stage! Most business travellers also choose a hotel where they can use an app to check in and check out, offers free and fast Wi-Fi and a room with multiple power sockets for all their devices – and the iron!
Many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast
Healthy eating options must definitely be on a hotel’s menu. To keep going through a busy diary of meetings and appointments means many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast, at least. Increasingly, the demand is for a variety of vegetarian and vegan options too. Healthy-eating often goes hand in hand with keeping fighting fit.
Committed, exercise-conscious business people seek out a fitness centre, which is easy to find, no waiting to use a particular machine, and exercise stations that are all maintained and working properly.
No.1 desire to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep”
Literally, at the end of the day – a business person’s working day – their No.1 desire can be simply to relax and unwind in peace and quiet. Most of all, to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep” on a quality king size bed and bedding.
