What is a serviced apartment? 


A serviced apartment offers our clients the best of both worlds: combining hotel standard services with flexible and spacious rented accommodation. For business travellers visiting Athens, corporate serviced apartments are perfectly suited, offering a home from home space which caters to all needs. We select our apartments specially, ensuring that they have all the features our clients look for in their chosen corporate housing. Some of the benefits our apartments offer our customers are:

Privacy and space. Whereas a hotel room, or suite, offers little in the way of living space or privacy, a serviced apartment provides ample private space. Away from bustling hotel corridors and foyers, a serviced apartment is set within a peaceful, dedicated apartment building. Your apartment will be quietly set back and apart, with designated areas for different activities, meaning you have plentiful space to live how you like, when you like – whether that is cooking, entertaining, working or simply relaxing. 
Excellent services. In addition to the spacious and luxurious apartment received for your payment, you will also receive access to a number of onsite services, which vary depending on your apartment of choice. These can include, on-site fitness centres, swimming pools, restaurants, car parking, conference rooms and more. All of these additional services and amenities are optional, so you can plan your time as you see fit.
Sensational value. Like for like, serviced apartments are much more affordable than hotel suits offering a similar level of features and space. In addition to the immediate cost savings a serviced apartment provides, additional savings can be made with long stay apartment bookings in Athens. Beyond a duration threshold, the tax applied to bookings drops, and this is passed on to the client. This makes our apartments especially beneficial for relocating colleagues awaiting permanent accommodation and in need of a longer-term apartment.
