Serviced Apartments: Concept

The term “serviced apartment” is used when referring to an alternative for hotel or any form of accommodation for short and long-stay leisure and business travellers, but distinctions can be made between the different types:

The extended stay hotel or “aparthotel,”

It generally offers a 24 h reception, is located in main areas of the city, and attempts to give the guest a home away from home feeling, within a hotel-like environment. It can range from budget to deluxe, and rooms range from studio apartments (one spacious efficiency unit that can be used as living area and sleeping area, a little kitchenette and a separate bathroom), to two- or three-bedroom apartments, which offer a separate living area, a kitchen, one or more bathrooms and separate bedrooms.

Because of the availability of kitchen facilities in the apartments, extended stay properties and apart-hotels usually offer no extra services, such as restaurants and bars. However, some extended stay properties have been built as an annex to existing four- or five-star hotels, and the guests in the apartments can make use of the hotel’s facilities at no extra charge.

  1. Thanks for another informative site. Where else could I get that kind of information written in such a perfect way? I’ve a project that I’m just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
