  1. Self-Catered Kitchens

When staying in a serviced apartment, you’ll have access to your own fully equipped, self-catered kitchen. This is perfect for a flexible stay, eliminating the strict mealtimes of hotels, bars and restaurants for any early starts or late finishes. Not only do you have added flexibility, you also make a huge saving on the cost of dining out.

  1. Washing & Drying Facilities

A serviced apartment is your home away from home, an attractive offering for professionals whose business trip extends over a longer period of time. Being able to wash, dry and iron your clothes is convenient for both your personal and business schedules. Most serviced apartments provide full laundry facilities for each individual apartment, eliminating the need to venture to a launderette or use a hotel facilities. This helps you to feel fully at home during your stay.

  1. Separate Living & Sleeping Space

The average serviced apartment provides you with 30% more space than a hotel room. When on a long trip, having that extra space is important, and the additional luxury of living areas is extremely beneficial, compared to a hotel room with only a bed and basic amenities. A serviced apartment really makes a difference when staying away from home – having a separate space to relax, and another to sleep. Just what you need after a busy day.

  1. Inclusive Rates

As well as being around 30% cheaper than hotels of a similar standard, serviced apartment rates are fully inclusive with no extra costs for things like parking and unlimited Wi-Fi. Fitted with either basic kitchenettes or fully equipped kitchens, serviced apartments allow you to cook at your convenience without the expense of going out to eat every night.

  1. Longer stay discounts & Reduced VAT

Often, nightly rates in a serviced apartment are cheaper than hotels, and with many people booking a serviced apartment for a long stay, there are often additional discounts. For bookings longer than 28 days, the VAT rate also reduces.
