What Are Serviced Apartments?

If you’re looking for comfortable, exclusive accommodation in Kent, serviced apartments are the answer. Think of a serviced apartment as your home away from home. This isn’t just a place to stay when on a business trip, or on a city escape, but, rather an easy-going accommodation option, suitable for a wide variety of occasions.

Whether you’re looking for a short or long-stay option, staying in a serviced apartment is like renting your very own flat but with all the benefits of regular accommodation or hotels.

Serviced Apartments vs Hotels

To start off, serviced apartments offer a lot more value for money. This is because they usually have more space and usually include a kitchenette with self-catering facilities such as cutlery and crockery, a microwave, oven and a fridge.

Entertaining guests at a hotel or regular accommodation can sometimes be awkward because of other guests and regulations, whereas at a serviced apartment it’s entirely your own space.

Another plus side to serviced apartments is that you’re allowed to bring your own food and alcoholic beverages without having to worry about utilising room service or eating at specified meal times. Having said that, those options like room service are still available of course.

Basically, this option allows for more privacy while still receiving amenities such as domestic services, Wi-Fi and DTV (Digital Television). Accommodation ranges from two-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom houses.

Serviced apartments include:
• Full cable television and Wi-Fi
• Water & electricity included
• Housekeeping
• A fully fitted out kitchen/kitchenette for self-catering
• Fully furnished bedrooms, a living area, and a bathroom

Reasons to book out a serviced apartment

Serviced apartments aren’t only for the purpose of accommodating business people or tourists. They’re quite ideal for several reasons. Think about it, on how many different occasions do people need a private place to stay? The problem with hotels is that they’re expensive. Services apartments aren’t and can be used for the following purposes:

Student accommodation

It can be difficult to find suitable housing as a student. Especially students who are studying abroad. Serviced apartments are perfect as the lease period is up to you, whether short-term or long-stay.Often, students can’t afford to kit out their apartments and that is why this is the perfect solution. They’re usually close to the town centre too, so no need for renting a vehicle.

You’re able to book on short notice and as we’ve mentioned, they’re fully kitted out with all the amenities you would usually have at home.
