What is a serviced apartment? 

Serviced apartments offer a unique style of accommodation perfectly suited to business travellers. Combining the space, luxury and freedom of a private rented apartment with the convenience and flexibility of hotel standard services, our apartments are ideal corporate hubs from which to carry out your itinerary. Booking with SilverDoor Apartments enables you to live and work to your schedule, unrestrained by hotel curfews and limitations. Some of the key benefits our apartments provide are:

Affordability. Our serviced apartments are, like for like, much more affordable than hotel suites offering similar features and space. Furthermore, for longer stays the nightly cost of our apartments drops with a tax reduction, meaning long-stay corporate housing in Queens is even better value for money. This makes them ideal for colleagues relocating and in need of long-term accommodation while waiting for a permanent residence. 
A range of services. In addition to the fantastic facilities including within each apartment, many of our apartments come with on-site facilities located within the apartment building – and which are included in the cost of your stay. These can include luxuries such as an on-site fitness centre and swimming pool, conference rooms, private cinemas, parking and many more additions. All of these inclusions are optional as to whether you utilise them or not – meaning you can maintain a fitness regime or find a place to park with ease during your stay. 
Flexible and peaceful space. A serviced apartment is truly advantageous above other forms of corporate accommodation due to the sense of privacy it provides as well as the unique home from home feel it evokes. With a fully equipped kitchen, separate living and sleeping spaces, you can truly adjust the space to suit your living style, not the other way around. Unlike a busy hotel corridor and foyer, you won’t be constantly disturbed by the comings and goings of a hotel crowd. You can even decide on the housekeeping times (in many cases) to ensure you are not disturbed during your stay.
