What is a serviced apartment? 

Simply put, a serviced apartment is a home from home. Spacious, flexible and designed to provide you with all the amenities you could expect from a private and self-contained living space, serviced apartments are perfect for business travellers. Combine this with a range of hotel level services – making life more convenient while staying in a new city – and it’s easy to see why corporate accommodation is favoured by those travelling on business. There is a vast array of benefits a corporate serviced apartment in St Petersburg provides, with just some being:

Privacy to suit you. Our apartments are peaceful and private residences. Unlike hotel rooms which often suffer from bustling corridors, lifts and foyers, serviced apartment buildings are quiet and homely. To maximise your peace, you can even schedule housekeeping to suit your schedule, meaning your stay can be completely uninterrupted. With space to perform your daily functions at leisure – not confined to a single room or suite – serviced apartments lend themselves to corporate use.
Incredible value. Like for like, serviced apartments are much more cost effective than hotel suites offering a similar standard of living and space. Furthermore, our apartments benefit from a tax reduction beyond a duration threshold, meaning further savings can be made on long stay apartment use. This is particularly useful for colleagues looking to relocate and awaiting permanent residence in a city. 
Amenities and services. Each of our corporate apartments in St Petersburg comes with a fully fitted kitchen as standard, as well as other high quality furnishings and features. Outside of the apartments themselves, many of our properties come with on-site services included in the price, ranging from fitness centres and swimming pools to conference rooms and cinemas. All services are completely optional, so you can use them as you see fit, and as suits your schedule.
