So, you’re staying in a serviced apartment, which means you’ve already got more space than a hotel room and there are kitchen facilities to cook your own food, but what else comes included? Well, depending on where you’re staying, there are additional extras that can elevate your accommodation experience to dizzying new heights. In this blog post we take a look at some of the most extravagant, luxury extras and ‘nice to haves’ found in serviced apartments on the SilverDoor website.
Chauffeur driven car – Taj 51 Buckingham Gate
Yes, that’s right, your very own chauffeur driven car! Booking in at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Jaguar Suite provides you with access to complimentary use of a chauffeur driven Jaguar car throughout your stay. Overseen by Jaguar’s in house Design Director Ian Callum, the suite features specially-commissioned artwork and displays which reference Jaguar’s timeless style.
Professional chef – Town Hall Apartments
Being able to cook for yourself is one of the biggest advantages of staying in a serviced apartment but how about having a professional chef take care of the cooking for a night or two? If you’re staying in one of the impressive, open-plan suites at Town Hall Apartments, you can request their in-house chef (at an extra charge) to make use of the fully-fitted kitchen and cook a bespoke menu for you and your guests.
Private lift – Europa House Apartments
Off-site managed serviced apartments may offer complete privacy but there’s something very decadent about having your own private lift. The penthouse suite at Europa House Apartments features a private lift to transport you directly to your three-bedroom apartment with a balcony that offers superb views of London.
Cinema room – Buckingham Gate Apartments
A number of serviced apartment providers have introduced Sky packages to their properties but proprietors behind Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Apartments have outdone themselves again, this time with the Cinema Suite. An impressive 85-inch, high definition, 3D television is complemented by an outstanding Steinway Lyngdorf surround sound system to bring the experience of the cinema to your serviced apartment.
Smart TV, iPad and Xbox – Urban Villa
We’ve touched upon serviced apartments that have premium television subscriptions but there are also properties that provide a full range of tech for you to utilise during your stay. Urban Villa features Samsung Smart TVs in every apartment that you can stream content to from your own smart devices or, if you’ve left the iPad at home, you can borrow one from reception that’s loaded with the latest film releases. Not into television or film? You can even request an Xbox 360 to keep you entertained.
Welcome hampers/grocery shopping – 47 Park Street
Most people are used to having a chocolate on their pillow when they check into their hotel room but at a serviced apartment you can be greeted by an entire hamper of goodies or even a few bags of groceries. Make the most of having kitchen facilities by putting in a request (before check-in) for the staff at 47 Park Street to pick up ingredients for you to make your favourite meals in the comfort of your serviced apartment.
Wine chiller – Rosler Apartments
Fancy enjoying a nice glass of wine while staying at Saco London Bridge? Don’t just stow it away in the fridge, make use of the built-in wine chiller. Keep your vino at the optimum temperature before enjoying a chilled glass on the balcony of your apartment.
From the extravagance of being transported around in an English sports car to having a nice chilled glass of wine on your balcony, there really is no limit to what can be included in a serviced apartment. While these extras aren’t included at every serviced apartment, you’ll always benefit from having kitchen facilities, more space and privacy.
