Whether travelling for business or leisure, alone, with a group or with a family, serviced apartments can offer huge benefits:
Staying in a serviced apartment gives you the room to work, cook, relax and sleep and on average you can expect to enjoy 30% more space than an equivalent standard of hotel. A typical one bedroom serviced apartment is around twice the size of the average hotel room.
Serviced apartment prices are typically 20% less than hotel rates of the same standard. There are no hidden extras (mini-bars, room service etc.) to be paid for either. And because the VAT reduces to 4% after 28 nights, longer stays can offer further savings.
Location, Location Location!
Serviced apartments are situated in great locations. Located in the heart of many tourist destinations as well as important business districts enables serviced apartments to meet the needs of a huge variety of guests!
You are free to come and go as you wish, enabling you to do things to meet your own schedule. The availability of the facilities in the apartment mean you can cook whenever you wish, work whenever you need to work, and there’s the added space to entertain guests or hold business meetings all within your own private space and at times that suit. You can often find apartments with several bathrooms and bedrooms which branch off from one central living area, this can work well for families, colleagues or groups travelling together.
Cooking & Washing Facilities
Having your own kitchen is convenient, cost-effective and also great if you have special dietary requirements as you can self-cater. Most serviced apartments have their own washer and dryers giving you the option of doing your own laundry. Convenient and cost-saving!
Many properties offer the chance to order bespoke hampers or welcome packs for your arrival as well as the availability of shopping services where you can pre-select goods for delivery. Rather than spending lots on the in-room mini bar you can buy and keep whatever snacks and drinks you like.
Don’t dismiss apartments as being boring box rooms. There is an array of apartments available, from the budget to the luxury, with plush interiors and top quality furnishings. Apartments offer a fully equipped kitchen, high quality bed linen, towels and toiletries. First class home entertainment facilities are usually available.

You can use the space in your apartment to host small business meetings around the dining table in your apartment. Some providers also have onsite meeting rooms or will assist you in booking external space as needed
Serviced apartments generally offer a greater degree of privacy. Apartments allow you to bypass the formalities and in many cases you simply can let yourself in and make yourself at home!
