What is a serviced apartment?

November 5th, 2015

Everyone’s knows of hotels, b&bs, hostels and so on but some people ask what is a serviced apartment? Therefore we have decided to answer that very question, here today, in simple language to tell you exactly what a serviced apartment is.

Serviced Apartments


Serviced apartments are an alternative accommodation choice compared with hotels, b&bs and so on. As the name suggests, serviced apartments are a whole apartment rather than just a room with a bathroom. They often include a fully equipped kitchen too – so are a self-catered form of accommodation. What is more, you’ll get a lounge with a TV and sofa in ours.

Length of stay


Most forms of accommodation offer short-term accommodation, for a night, weekend or week. Although most serviced apartments offer this too, they also offer much longer term options. We often have people stay with us regularly for longer than a month and even have people stay a lot longer than that.

Serviced Apartments vs Renting


If you want to stay somewhere for a long time without purchasing then you may look at renting somewhere. However, this can be a lengthy and complicated process, you will need to set up and register for bills and council tax, broadband and your TV license. You will also need to furnish your rental. A serviced apartment however, is easy, there is just one bill each month, everything is already set up and our serviced apartments in Milton Keynes and Bedford are all fully furnished, from beds to cutlery.

Space and other benefits


Your hotel room, b&b or hostel on average will have little space compared with serviced accommodation. The apartments are on average 40% bigger than a hotel room. There are also another selection of benefits, including cleaning/housekeeping on a regular basis. Serviced apartments are also very convenient for families, you can choose an apartment with multiple bedrooms so that the whole family can stay in the same ‘room’.


There you have it – the answer to the all-important question: ‘what is a serviced apartment?’.
