What is a serviced apartment?

Although hotels dominated the corporate travel world for decades past, more and more corporations are turning to serviced apartments than ever before. The reason for this is simple: serviced apartments offer a better experience to their clients who in turn achieve better results. The combination of hotel services for maximum convenience and private, spacious living quarters for a truly home from home experience, offers clients the opportunity to truly settle into their new business travel lifestyle. The key benefits our apartments offer can be described as:

·         Excellent value. Incredibly, serviced apartments are significantly less expensive than hotels offering like-for-like arrangements. In addition to these savings, and the savings made by having access to a personal, fully fitted kitchen to avoid relying on expensive restaurant meals, serviced apartments offer even greater value on longer stays. Bookings lasting more than 28 days receive a 20% tax reduction, which is passed onto the client in a discounted nightly rate. This makes serviced apartments particularly good value for relocating clients in need of long term temporary accommodation whilst awaiting a permanent residence,

·         A perfect work life balance. As mentioned, serviced apartments provide plentiful space, and designated living areas, to truly feel at home. Rather than operating from one hotel room, you are able to unpack and use each area of your apartment as you wish. Being able to work, cook, relax and sleep means you will quickly feel at home and be able to organise yourself efficiently. Weekly housekeeping means you won’t need to worry about regular chores, and a host of on-site amenities and services means you can decide how much you want to indulge: gymnasiums, pools, restaurants, parking and many more services are often on hand to be used, or not, depending on your preference.
