Your home away from home
Not every business topic can be solved on the telephone or during a video conference. Sometimes not even a short visit of the business partner or a meeting in another branch office is sufficient. Often, managing directors, project managers or project assistants have to go to another city for several weeks or even months. To find a place to stay during that time is not always easy: In many cases, renting and furnishing a conventional flat would be too complicated, taking a hotel room would be too expensive. Therefore, independent agencies find the special property of „serviced apartments“ for many business travellers. Assuredly, those who must work for extended periods of time away from home seek a nearby, comfortable and at the same time affordable place to stay.
Serviced apartments are a boarding concept aimed at the segment of long-term stays. Thereby, business travellers get „the best of two worlds“: more space and privacy than in a hotel room on one side, more comfort and flexibility in booking than in a rented flat or holiday apartment on the other side.
For several years now, the market of serviced apartments has continuously grown in many regions. Nowadays, serviced apartments are available in many major cities and in several most economically strong regions. No matter if for business or private matters - looking for a temporary apartment far from the common hotel industry has seldom been easier. A choice of serviced apartments run by individual operators or by big national and international chains is available. The apartments are either integrated in a normal hotel, being part of the same building or they are found in a separate building. Furthermore, serviced apartments may also be found in corporate housings, which tend to be more similar to a normal residential house. Depending on the concept, the vast majority of operators offer such amenities as laundry, breakfast or cleaning service. Those services are modular-based and available upon request or at an extra charge.
Even for professional groups such as trainers, sales representatives or exhibition staff that are often hired on a short-term or project basis, serviced apartments are an interesting option. Even for relocations of large scale enterprises, serviced apartments are used. Making the start at the new location easier for the employees and thus for the company.
By the way: While in the U.S. and many other countries, the term „corporate housing“ would be equivalently used for „serviced apartments“, the term is often rarely known in some other regions. For instance, in the German-speaking countries they are more commonly refered to as „boarding houses“, when looking for a business apartment for a long-term rent.
