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
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.
What do I need to know about staying in Aalst?
Located just 19 miles from the Belgian capital of
Brussels, Aalst is excellently placed for travel to the major destinations not
only in Belgium, but in the wider Euro-zone. To make the most of your stay, we
have assembled some key information about this beautiful city.
Renowned for its carnivals, Aalst hosts many
festivities each year before Lent. These involve many staple activities
including: the ‘throwing of the onions’ from the town hall belfry, the election
of a ‘Prince Carnival’ and a large parade across the city on a Sunday – which
features costumed volunteers and many parade cars.
Situated in Northern Europe, Aalst has a relatively
typical weather system for the region. Comfortably warm summers with year round
cloud are standard features of the city’s climate, whereas winters are usually
very cold and windy. The time for best weather is estimated to be between late
June and early September.
What else is Aalst known for?
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.
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.
