10 Benefits of Staying in a Serviced Apartment

Whether for business or pleasure, there are many benefits to choosing a serviced apartment for your next trip.

If you’ve never tried it before, why not discover the many joys of a serviced apartment on your next trip? Serviced apartments offer the luxury of space and attentive service for the same price as a hotel room or less. If you don’t fancy tripping over your suitcase in a tiny room, then only a spacious serviced apartment will do.

A serviced apartment also has all the comforts of home but without the chores required to maintain it. Especially if, like Frasers Hospitality properties, it comes with a dedicated housekeeper trained to understand your preferences.

On top of that, a serviced apartment typically has a fully-equipped kitchenette with an electric hob, microwave oven and fridge. Satisfy food cravings by whipping up your favourite dish, or stock up on ice-cream and meats without worry. And if you require fresh, clean clothes every day, there’s also a built-in washer and dryer.

Best of all, in these uncertain times, serviced apartments provide peace of mind with the #FraserCares assurance of certified sanitised rooms, safe distancing measures, reservations flexibility and more. Together with round-the-clock concierge services and security, there is a strong commitment to maintain the highest standards of hygiene, cleanliness and service for guests’ well-being and safety. Following the health authorities’ guidelines, public spaces and facilities are regularly cleaned and sanitised, with daily security and temperature checks for all.

If you are not yet convinced, here are 10 reasons why you should choose a serviced apartment for your next trip away. 

1. Luxury of space

Space is the ultimate luxury and there’s a lot of it in any of our serviced apartments. Choose from spacious studios and one-bedroom apartments to sprawling three-bedroom residences and even duplex penthouses.

Since a serviced apartment is generally spacious than a standard hotel room, there is certainly zero chance of cabin fever. Plus there is also the privileged option of entertaining visitors.

2. Suitable accommodation for all

Whether for business or pleasure, the size of a serviced residence always spells extra space for every type of guest. If you’re travelling solo on an extended stay, you can let visiting friends and family stay over comfortably. If you’re a couple on holiday, there’s little chance of stumbling over suitcases and shopping.

And if you’re on a family trip, there’s no need to split the kids and grandparents into separate hotel rooms or floors; everyone can now stay in the same apartment.

3. Value for money

Another benefit of serviced apartments is it can be a more cost-effective alternative to booking multiple hotel rooms – especially if you’re going to be staying for a few nights at a stretch. With a longer stay and more occupants, you get much more for less.

4. Peace of mind in the new normal

Secure and sanitary surroundings are the top expectations of travellers these days. Frasers Hospitality inspires confidence with the #FraserCares assurance of certified sanitised rooms, safe distancing and extended reservations flexibility. The premises and equipment are regularly and stringently disinfected, and the staff and guest temperatures taken.  

Round-the-clock security and a 24-hour concierge/reception desk further ensure entry is restricted to only those who are welcome and well. Equally important is that the friendly front desk and housekeeping staff are trained to be on the alert, always ready to lend a helping hand if needed. We take hygiene seriously, so that you can relax completely.

5. Guaranteed personalised service

Sincere hospitality is the hallmark of Frasers Hospitality serviced apartments – we promise to make you feel at home. 

Our staff are experienced professionals, including a dedicated housekeeper trained to know your preferences. They are passionate about meeting individual needs and preferences, like providing the perfect pillow from an extensive menu of pillows rated for firmness and health properties. Or preparing special meals for those with dietary needs. They will even customise a tour of the city if you’d like a local’s insights. We invite you to find out for yourself how our staff will go the extra mile to surprise you.

6. Unique properties in great locations

Boutique hotels aren’t the only ones with a monopoly on history and character. Unique and history-rich Fraser properties promise an unforgettable experience. For example, discover what it’s like to stay in an iconic former tax office in the heart of Hamburg. Or a heritage building along the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

And compared to a private home in a residential neighbourhood, serviced apartments are usually located in prime areas close to key business districts or within the city centre. These place you closer to where you work and play, not only saving time and effort but also putting you nearer to a wider range of dining, nightlife and leisure possibilities.

7. Eat in

The serviced apartment’s kitchenette or kitchen is stocked with cookware, tableware and cleaning aids. Prepare anything from quick microwaveable popcorn to elaborate full-course meals for a movie night or dinner party in your spacious apartment. Having the option to cook for yourself also caters to a wider range of diets, especially if you want to eat healthy or are just craving a taste of home.

But if you’re pressed for time and prefer to order in, many properties have multiple dining concepts with a wide range of local favourites and international specialities.

8. Full amenities and facilities

Every Fraser serviced apartment comes with the little luxuries expected by the frequent traveller – Malin+Goetz and L’Occitane toiletries, premium Ronnefeldt tea, Nespresso coffee makers and even a yoga mat for some.

These are on top of the standard items like cushy beds and sofas, rain shower, and even the option of upgrading the apartment with your personal art collection or favourite furniture.

For those planning a longer stay, a serviced apartment has wellness amenities like an in-house fitness centre, swimming pool, or sauna and spa. Other wellness and lifestyle additions include the signature Retreat space – a tranquil room with massage chairs and soothing scents – and even a golf simulator, personal trainer and even an indoor ski slope!

9. Come back to a clean home, always

No mess, no fuss. Our dedicated housekeepers and engineers ensure you return to a clean and well-kept space every day. The proactive maintenance checks will change that light bulb and fix the air-con if it’s needed – before you notice it.   

But if you prefer to do your own laundry – whether it’s because laundry charges can add up with an extended stay, or you prefer to pack light, or you don’t want to risk damaging a delicate garment – there are always self-service laundrettes or a washer/dryer in your own apartment so you can travel light.

10. Kids and pets are welcome

Parents, go do your thing and stop worrying about your children. There are child-friendly facilities to take good care of them, such as the kids’ pool, outdoor playground, indoor playroom and babysitting services.

But if you’re a pet person, your furkids are welcome too, although not in the pool. Let your pet dog or cat join you in a pet-friendly serviced apartment, and feel free to walk them in the building’s public spaces and outdoor areas.

 

Ready to explore the world again? Whether you’re just stepping out to rediscover your city or getting on a plane to somewhere far away, make one of these Frasers Hospitality properties your next home away from home.
