Why choose serviced apartments?
Research confirms that the top 5 reasons why business travellers choose serviced apartments in preference to a conventional hotel are:
More space to live and work comfortably
On average a serviced apartment provides up to twice as much space as an equivalent standard hotel room, so whether the choice is a studio apartment or a 4 bedroom house, it offers a separate kitchen, a properly equipped living/working area and bedroom/s. Guests can therefore work remotely very productively.
Cost-effective accommodation solution
With travel budgets increasingly under pressure, business and leisure travellers find serviced apartments offer excellent value for money. There will be no 'hidden extras' (drinks from the mini-bar, room service charges, etc.) and wireless Internet access is normally included in the price, making it easier to keep within budget.
Guests staying for 7 nights or more will normally benefit from a reduced price per night. Business travellers often save more money by hosting meetings within their apartment instead of hiring a separate meeting room.
Flexibility within a home-from-home environment
Guests enjoy the flexibility of being able to choose to eat in from time-to-time; whether it be employing a chef to host a dinner party in their apartment, or relaxing on their own with a home-cooked meal.
Business travellers in particular can spend several weeks or months away from home and appreciate a home-from-home environment offering maximum flexibility and independence.
Many of our apartments are officially quality assessed by VisitBritain and most have a 4 or 5 star quality rating.
Serviced apartments offer a very high standard of contemporary furnishings and everything you would expect of a hotel room and more:
- A fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher and washer/dryer)
- High quality bed linen, towels and toiletries
- First-class home entertainment facilities - DVD, CD and the very latest in-room technology
Generally serviced apartments offer a greater degree of privacy. An apartment block in a major city will on average have anything from 30 to 50 apartments and therefore a maximum of around 100 to 150 people as opposed to a conventional hotel with 100 to 200 bedrooms which, combined with the public areas, probably means around 400 to 500 people in the building at any time.
