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:

·         Privacy and 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.

·         Amazing value. Benefitting from a reduced nightly rate as standard when compared with hotel suites offering a similar level of space and amenities, serviced apartments also benefit from, further cost reductions once a certain duration threshold is  passed. This comes in the form of a nightly tax reduction which is passed onto the client. This makes our apartments even more cost effective for longer stay, for example for a relocating colleagues in need of long term accommodation whilst awaiting a permanent residence.

·         Quality services included. Many of our apartments come with on-site features included in the price. These services are designed to make your stay more enjoyable and 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.
