Why choose a
SilverDoor Sandnes apartment?
What is a serviced apartment?
The perfect combination of a private, home from home design
and luxury hotel services, a serviced apartment is an ideal form of accommodation
for the corporate traveller. Providing all the amenities and space required for
a truly relaxed homely environment, as well as the flexibility and convenience we
all crave when staying away from home, serviced apartments are a far superior
booking option than the inflexible and confined hotel alternative. The main
advantages our apartments offer are:
space. Designed with the guest’s complete comfort in mind, serviced apartments
offer designated, spacious living areas for total privacy and peace of mind.
Unlike a hotel room located near busy corridors and elevators, serviced
apartments offer serene private spaces to allow for a home from home
experience. The range of fully fitted rooms also means our guests can live on
their own schedule – with the option to rest, work, entertain, cook and sleep
in the comfort of their own quarters.

suites offering a similar level of space and amenities, serviced apartments

apartments even more cost effective for longer stay, for example for a

convenient, meaning you can, for instance, continue your fitness regime during
your stay by making the most of an on-site fitness centre or swimming pool. Similarly,
many properties benefit from additional work spaces, conference rooms and
additional features such as parking and private cinema rooms.
