The Corporate housing
These are residential apartments that have been upgraded for shorter term rentals and packaged together with services such as cleaning, utility charges, local taxes, telephone and television for stays of 30 days or more. They can be in city centres but are more often than not on the outskirts of town, within easy access to main business areas.
What both types have in common is that the units are all fully furnished and equipped, including conveniences expected in hotel rooms such as television, DVD, and internet access, but also catering facilities. High end serviced apartments may have luxury features such as European-style gourmet kitchens, generous closet space, full-sized washer and dryer, ceramic tiled bathrooms, oversized tubs, and high-tech wiring/networking capabilities.
