What is a serviced apartment?

Unlike a restrictive hotel suite, a serviced apartment offers a contemporary and convenient solution for business travellers. Taking elements of hotel services and combining them a private rental, our serviced apartments in Leuven are an ideal home-from-home for corporate travellers. The range of benefits is undeniable, and as a result more and more businesses, including some of the world’s largest corporations, only use serviced apartments when conducting business across the world. Just some of these benefits include:

 

·         Excellent value. With serviced apartments costing considerably less than hotel suite equivalents, you certainly get more for your money with one of our apartments. Besides the space and luxury it affords the guest, greater value is added on longer-stay bookings. This is due to a tax reduction which is passed onto the client. This makes serviced apartments even more beneficial for housing relocating employees whilst they await permanent accommodation.

·         Luxury services. What our apartments do retain from the hotel model is the convenience of on-site services. From housekeeping to parking, there are a variety of services (often included) that the guest can enjoy. These can include fitness centres, business rooms, private cinemas, a reception service and many more features, dependent on your venue.

·         Unrivalled privacy. Perhaps the greatest element of a serviced apartment is the privacy it provides. No busy hotel corridors. No meal time schedule. No cramped rooms. Apartments provide ample space to truly live comfortably. With designated areas in which to work, rest, entertain and cook, you are free to live as you like, when you like.  We believe these features result in more prosperous business trips, as ensuring your stay is optimised, also ensures that you are.
