Serviced apartments are a housing option that has experienced a boom in recent years. The data proves it. According to the 2023 guide to serviced apartments, published by Business Travel Magazine, in partnership with ASAP, the occupancy of serviced apartments in 2022 in the UK was 78%, compared to 73,5% that of hotels.
Serviced apartments are characterized by offering a fully equipped stay, similar to what can be found in a hotel, but with the privacy and comfort of an apartment. Serviced apartments are a very attractive option for business travelers who travel for medium-long periods of time, as they are a comfortable and flexible alternative.
These are the 5 main advantages of staying in a serviced apartment
1. Unified contract management
In hotels, there is no possibility of unifying the contracts, which can result in a slower and more complicated process for an agency that manages many business trips. On the other hand, if you choose a serviced apartment, there is the possibility of a unified management. Apartool offers a unified management of services and conditions, payments, billing and contracts all in the same platform.
2. Registration of supplies
In serviced apartments, the registration of supplies is included and already processed. This means that you will not have to worry about managing it, which can be time consuming and expensive.
3. Additional services
All serviced apartments have additional services which provide that comfort that makes you feel like you are “home away from home” such as: high-speed Wi-Fi, kitchen, work space and weekly cleaning, among others.
4. Flexible check-in / check-out hours
Serviced apartments offer a great advantage over hotels in terms of flexibility in check-in and check-out times, being completely adapted to the needs of the expat. In hotels, this is very rigid, which can be inconvenient if you need to make adjustments to your schedule.
5. Easy extension of the reservation
Another advantage of many of the serviced apartments is the ease of extending a reservation without having to incur limited or complicated management.
