Serviced apartments are something to really consider before booking your next business trip – they are ideal for business travellers, as they can be booked for either just a few nights or several weeks at a time, but they’re particularly suitable for extended business trips where more space and flexibility is required.

The extra space that you get with an apartment over a hotel room is a major benefit. Rather than confining all of your workspace and sleep area all into one room, you can keep those totally separate and really feel like you’re at home and have a proper living space, whilst having the service and touches of a hotel.

They’re also a lot more cost effective than a hotel room, especially when dealing with 10 people or more. Hotels can become very expensive once you’ve settled the final bill after breakfast, dinner, WiFi etc. are all included. Select Apartments say that on average they save their clients 20-25% of their accommodation budget.

Due to not being tied down to a specific supplier, they are able to source the apartment that exactly meets you and your company’s needs and they also go the extra mile beyond just finding your apartment – they also offer a VIP chauffeur service, a fridge filling service and a free one month Tastecard allowing you to enjoy restaurants at discounted rates.

Niki Fuchs, managing director and co-founder at Office Space in Town said: “We are delighted to be working with Select Apartments and look forward to adding further value to the services it provides its customers.  We pride ourselves on offering our partners and tenants beautiful, high-spec facilities ranging from beauty treatment rooms to rooftop terrace cafes. We have a wide variety of meeting rooms in city centre locations, ranging from cosy snugs designed for two to boardrooms that can accommodate larger groups, which will provide excellent alternative work hubs for Select Apartments customers.”

Select Apartments source and provide corporate apartments in London, as well as many other major cities both in the UK and internationally.
