The term ‘serviced apartment’ is commonly used, especially here at Urban Apartments leaving many curious about what defines a serviced apartment and how it sets itself apart from other accommodations. 

Essentially, serviced apartments offer fully furnished housing available for short stays and extended lets. These accommodations deliver a host of home comforts, including sofas and TVs, coupled with hotel-like services, such as housekeeping, all encompassed within the overall rental cost.

Popular in the corporate sector, companies often opt for serviced apartments to accommodate their travelling employees. These apartments are equally suitable for leisure stays, providing more space, privacy, and freedom than traditional hotel rooms, as guests are assigned their own designated apartments, fully equipped.

Serviced apartments come in various types, ranging from studio apartments to expansive multi-bedroom houses. Standard features typically include fully equipped kitchens with utensils and appliances, laundry facilities, living spaces, bedrooms, TVs, WiFi, and housekeeping services. All these amenities are covered by the overall rental cost, with some providers offering additional on-site facilities like parking, and conference rooms, like us here at Urban Apartments.

Similar to hotels, serviced apartments have check-in and check-out times. With no reception areas, contactless check-in procedures are often implemented for guest convenience. Housekeeping services are typically offered on a weekly basis, ensuring regular changes of towels and bed linen at the guest’s preferred time.

For extended stays, serviced apartments often prove more cost-effective, with set rates and discounts readily available. The added bonus of 24/7 security is a standard feature, offering guests total peace of mind during their stay.
