What is a serviced apartment?

Repeatedly, we find that our customers are dissatisfied with the limitations of hotel rooms when conducting business on the move. A lack of flexibility, rigid schedules and limited space are all factors which make hotels less than ideal for business travellers. Conversely, our corporate serviced apartments are perfect for business travel. There are many reasons why serviced accommodation is superior to hotels – particularly in the corporate arena – but a few of the main advantages are:

·         Value for money. On a like for like basis, our serviced apartments are far more affordable than hotel suites. In addition to this excellent value, the nightly rate of apartments decreases beyond a certain booking threshold – meaning our corporate accommodation is even better value when booking for long stays – particularly relocating colleagues in a need of a temporary residence while awaiting permanent accommodation.

·         Private and flexible. In addition to the privacy afforded by a private serviced apartment (away from the busy and often impersonal locale of a hotel room), you will also benefit from the flexibility a spacious and fully fitted living space provides. Decide when and where you eat (the option to cook your own meals not only saves money but can save time and be a more relaxed atmosphere) and use your private space how you like – for work, meetings or simply to relax in comfort.

·         Luxury services. Our apartments often come with included hotel-like services, from housekeeping to onsite amenities, including: gymnasiums, spas, restaurants, parking, conference rooms and more. Your accommodation truly can be a home from home with all the luxuries you require to live comfortably.

Like much of Belgium, Aalst is known for its speciality beers and chocolates. The city is home to many bars and taverns, with some notable establishments being The Music Club, Bar Cozi and The Milano. Aalst also has many fantastic French restaurants, including Kelderman and Culeau, which make excellent venues for business meetings or informal discussions.

Economy

A remnant of the French occupation, Aalst has a considerable textile industry which continues to produce clothing and footwear as well as the machines needed in these fields. In rural areas hops are produced which feeds to breweries in the city and throughout Belgium. The cut flowers business is also still a prominent industry in the city.
