Anyone who has done much traveling will be familiar with the experience of cabin fever. Essentially, for the uninitiated, it is the feeling you get when you are in a small û or even decent-sized û hotel room and all of your time away from the sight-seeing which makes up the day is spent between four walls, aside from mealtimes. With the bedroom doubling as a living room, the bathroom attached and a lack of kitchen and dining facilities, your life is reduced to that of a sailor on board an old cruise liner. Hence the term ôcabin feverö. It is not a particularly pleasurable experience, made all the worse by the fact that, for the privilege of eating in a restaurant, you will have to pay often exorbitant amounts of money just so that you can eat properly and escape the tedium.
This is becoming less and less of an issue, with the more expensive hotels now offering very large rooms and bathrooms that would not look out of place in the average family home. Yet to get a true home-style experience in the city where you are holidaying, there is no real substitute for a serviced apartment complex. The advantage that the apartment has over a hotel room is quite pronounced. Aside from the obvious more room in which to move around and a great deal more privacy for parties of more than one person where these apartments really come into their own is in having a kitchen attached. Instead of paying through the nose to eat in a restaurant even the best value ones have service charges to cover, after all you can take care of meals yourself.
Even if you are not much of a cook, this is an undoubted benefit. As most serviced apartments are located close to a supermarket, you will be able to find some ingredients or, at worst, a ready meal that can easily be prepared in the apartment kitchen. A real advantage for the traveler who is prone to cabin fever, without a doubt. The Star Boutique Hotel Apartments is one such complex in Dubai, that allows the customer to take more of a hands-on role in their holiday experience and cut costs significantly. Aside from the advantages already mentioned, it allows the voyager to cut down on homesickness, as they are able to live much the same lifestyle as they would at home.
Added to all of this, the Star Boutique Hotel Apartments are located close by for Deira City Center, which has a large upscale mall and a cinema where you can catch both American and local movies. Also nearby is the Wild Wadi water park, which makes an excellent destination for a day trip especially if you are traveling with kids in tow. The hotel will even lay on a car for short trips, for the same price as a metered taxi cab. Furthermore, the staff at the complex are genuinely friendly, helpful people whose main goal is to ensure that you have the holiday break you want, the way you want it.
