Serviced Apartments are the hotel alternative for business travel and relocation needs
For travellers looking for an alternative to a hotel room, serviced apartments are the answer.
Professionally managed serviced apartments range from studios to penthouses to family homes and are available for short-term or long-term stays. From single apartments to aparthotels, guests can enjoy a range of hotel-like facilities including weekly housekeeping, on-site gyms, restaurants, cafes, meeting spaces, concierge, and so on.
Serviced apartments suit both business and leisure travellers and are the accommodation choice for those looking at workcation and bleisure trips.
What’s different is the space, privacy and flexibility provided by a serviced apartment
Offering more space, privacy and flexibility than a traditional hotel room, apartments are fully furnished including a fully equipped kitchen. Often known as the home from home, guests have the flexibility to choose how they stay – from when they eat, to if they dine out or “eat at home”, whether to invite friends and family around, or to hold a business meeting in the separate living space. For any stay over 5 nights, an apartment is a more comfortable way to stay.
Corporate business travel
Large corporate travel programs often stipulate that stays over 5 nights are booked in serviced apartments. With a range of apartments available from one-bedroom, multi-bedroom, large penthouses, individual houses and aparthotels, it is easy to accommodate single business travellers, project teams, or those relocating from one country to another requiring a space for the whole family to call home.
Duty of Care
Our portfolio of serviced apartments is a hotel room alternative that is fast gaining popularity, particularly considering the recent global pandemic. Today, when a safe and secure place to stay is more important than ever, a serviced apartment is the right choice to make. Duty of Care has moved to the top of the corporate agenda and we can provide bespoke reporting to ensure full transparency in terms of guest locations. Companies that add apartments to accommodation options are likely to see a drop in rogue bookings – which are a Duty of Care headache.
A huge range of flexible and efficient apartment options
We have a global network of apartments to suit your individual needs and budget. Working to your brief, we can source the perfect accommodation for any number of guests and negotiate to get you the best price.
Whether you are staying for a week, a month, a year or longer, changing or extending bookings is easy.
We keep records of booking information, invoicing and costs and our trusted network of apartment providers will provide support during your stay. Many offer 24/7 support.
Cost effective accommodation solutions
With a serviced apartment the client sees more value for money. With far more space to enjoy than a typical hotel room, guests can still experience hotel-like service with weekly cleaning and laundry services. Clients and guests can also save expense with the option of the guest eating in, which is particularly important for longer stays. And as you would expect, WiFi is included as standard. For guests staying for extended periods of time, the cost is all-inclusive of utilities and bills, ensuring a stress-free experience, free of contracts and administration. Simply move in and start living.
Clean and secure
It has never been more important to ensure a clean, safe and secure environment in which to stay. Serviced apartments provide an independent, private space with fewer shared facilities than hotels. Many of our suppliers are ISAAP accredited – read more below.
The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers
Providers of serviced accommodation who are members of The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP), the representative trade body for the serviced apartment sector of the hospitality industry, are, in the most, accredited organisations through ISAAP accreditation and certification schemes.

Providers of serviced apartments who achieve ISAAP Compliance Accreditation guarantee that they meet the ISAAP Promise, and this includes the need to demonstrate that a thorough Infection Prevention and Control process is in place so that guest safety can be maximized. Some of the components of this standard ensure the deep-cleaning of rooms, lift buttons and other high touch points, hands free entry where possible and supply of hand sanitizer gel.
Support wellbeing and mental health
Mental health awareness and support is a key topic for employers. We know environment can have a significant impact on both mental wellbeing and productivity. By providing a more spacious, comfortable, and private space for employees when they are working away from home, existing wellbeing initiatives are supported. Apartments are a popular choice for more and more business travellers – it makes sense to offer this option as part of a company travel policy. Many aparthotels offer communal spaces that are perfect for working, meeting new people, or simply enjoying a break.
Choose a location to suit your lifestyle
The Apartment Network gives its clients access to over 52,000 serviced apartments in towns and cities all over the world. Our portfolio spans global business centres, provincial towns and cities as well as more bespoke locations. For business travellers, apartments need to be located close to work, conferences, events, etc.
For leisure travellers, or for those relocating, a serviced apartment away from a business district, in a more residential area, will be appealing. You can live like a local, be a local, become part of a local community and feel right at home. Plenty of apartments also accept pets. Please check with your account manager.
