What is a serviced apartment? 


Simply put, a serviced apartment is an optimised form of accommodation, blending the very best aspects of a hotel suite with a private homely apartment. This combination, offering both the luxury and convenience of hotel services such as housekeeping, and the privacy and flexibility of a home, such as a kitchen and plentiful space, makes our serviced apartments in Charleroi ideal for business travellers. All in all, serviced apartments make corporate travelling, and corporate living, much easier for our clients. Below are some of the benefits they provide:  

Serviced apartments are, on average, much more affordable than equivalent hotel suites. The cost savings and colleague satisfaction serviced apartments deliver speaks for itself, but the value doesn’t stop there. Long-stay bookings at our serviced apartments (beyond a certain threshold) qualify for a tax reduction which is passed onto the clients. Therefore, serviced apartments are excellent for relocating travellers who require long term temporary accommodation whilst awaiting a permanent residence. 
In terms of convenience, serviced apartments in Charleroi top the list. In addition to the spacious living space to call your own, many of our apartments benefit from on-site amenities (with housekeeping as standard) which only make your stay more enjoyable and convenient. These can include features such as free parking, a 24 hour concierge and reception service, fitness centres, restaurants, business rooms and more. With the majority of these bonus services included in the price of your stay, you will settle in and feel at home immediately.  
And that really is the key – our apartments are your home from home. Everything about them has been assembled to make corporate travellers feel at ease in their surroundings. From the décor to the design, everything you need is close to hand and your living space provides ample room to live almost as you would at home. With a furnished kitchen, separate living area and sleeping area, you can cook, work, entertain and rest in peace, even when travelling with colleagues.

History

Having passed between ownership of Spanish and Dutch forces, Charleroi was eventually liberated during The Belgian Revolution of 1830, ushering in a new era of prosperity. As the city’s trade grew in demand during the Industrial Revolution, people from across Europe settled in Charleroi to benefit from the growing economy. Today, after various crises including the city’s decline in the Second World War, the city has some prominence, being the fourth largest in Belgium.
