What is The Difference Between a Balcony Room and a Terrace Room?
Roof terraces and balconies are both methods of accessing outdoor areas of buildings and homes. Terraces and balconies provide additional outdoor space while also adding a touch of luxury to your home.
Terraces are flat areas that protrude from or are found on building rooftops. Terraces have been used for centuries to add usable space. They are now primarily used as impressive social spaces that add luxury and elegance to any building. Terraces are extremely popular and have been used to create bars, restaurants, and memorable social spaces all over the world.
Balconies are elevated platforms attached to the side of a house or structure. Balconies can even be fully or partially covered, providing shelter from the elements while you enjoy the outdoors. Balconies, unlike terraces, are typically small and accessible only through the room to which they are attached. Balconies, due to their size, are frequently used as an extension of the adjacent room rather than as a large social room. Balconies, while smaller than terraces, add extra space to your home that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as small gardens, seating, dining, or social areas.
Is It Worth Paying A Bit Extra For a Balcony/Terrace Room?
Absolutely! One of the best parts about travelling is being able to wake up and immerse yourself in a new landscape right from your room. Here are some benefits of a balcony/terrace room that make it worthwhile to pay the extra money if you have it.
This is the main reason to choose a balcony room. You can open your balcony door at any time of day or night and breathe in the fresh air. Nothing beats stepping out onto a balcony for a few minutes or more to soak in the cool breeze while enjoying the panoramic landscape of this vibrant capital city.
The ultimate privacy to enjoy the best views
If you have a balcony room, you are always guaranteed an outdoor space where you can relax in complete privacy for a few hours. In general, it will be a peaceful outdoor space. You can take a sip of coffee, and read a book while hearing the sounds of people in the city while watching their daily lives, isn't it an interesting and “local" experience?
The chance for a romantic dinner
Nothing says romance quite like a private dinner for two under the stars. And that's exactly what you can do with rooms having a balcony, with the breeze as a background soundtrack. Some hotels will arrange an elegant, private dinner for two on your balcony — think white tablecloths, multiple courses, the works — at no extra charge.
Sitting on a balcony and enjoying breakfast with a view of the Cambodian capital is part of the romance and vibrancy of Phnom Penh. Balcony rooms may be more expensive than standard rooms. However, in these uncertain times, allowing our minds to wander to places outside of our bedrooms can be immeasurably calming. So if you prefer a private outdoor space while on vacation, they may be worth the extra money. Have a look at Luxcity Deluxe Room Collection, our balcony is spacious and airy with a minibar or a set of couches for everyone to chill. Save your stay now!
