BEST SERVICED APARTMENTS


T

here are many advantages to staying in a luxury serviced apartment over a hotel. Offering

an upscale home away from home experience, luxury serviced apartments are becoming

increasingly popular in Hong Kong and mainland China – there are plenty of reasons why booking into one for your next long stay away makes sense. Offering the privacy and comfort of home, serviced apartments are run like a hotel, with housekeeping staff on hand to keep your space place looking spotless. While many believe they need to stay away a long time from home to rent one of these apartments, it’s possible to book them

for short term stays too. In most cases, the requirement to stay a minimum of three months is no longer applicable and terms are becoming more flexible to suit the requirements of the occupant. One of the biggest advantages of booking a serviced apartment over a hotel is location. Unless you are willing to pay a premium for a central location, hotels can be located in sterile parts of the city close to the business centres, or in unattractive locations far from the city’s main sights. On the other hand, serviced apartments are often situated right in the middle of things, usually within an authentic

local neighbourhood. This enables guests to really get under the skin of the city they are staying in by soaking up the genuine vibe and atmosphere of the place. In a city such as Hong Kong where space is at a premium, hotel rooms are often on the small side, even if they are five-star luxury properties. Luxury serviced apartments, Taikoo Place Apartments

however, generally have a separate living and dining area – and even more living space if you choose an executive or premier option – so guess can stretch out and make themselves at home. This sense of space and belonging can be particularly welcome after a long, stressful day. While cooking may be the last thing on your mind, a kitchen with a fridge and microwave is useful for storing late night snacks and drinks without having to pay a premium for

breakfast and prepare for the day ahead in the quiet of your own personal space as opposed to a busy hotel breakfast service, or crowded cafe. Keen gourmets, meanwhile, can explore the local markets and experiment with local ingredients. In addition to a kitchen area, serviced apartments are often equipped with an in-room washer and dryer, which means you can wash your clothes for free instead of totting up expensive hotel laundry bills every time you need a shirt washed or a suit pressed. Telephone and internet costs also tend

to be cheaper than the average hotel offers in serviced apartments. While one of the benefits of staying in a hotel is not having to make your own bed, housekeeping can be an intrusion; some may make an appearance several times daily to clean, turn down your bed and so on. If you decide to sleep in and forget to put the “do not disturb” sign on the door, or just want Somerset Victoria Park

some privacy, these constant interruptions can be a nuisance. In serviced apartments, housekeeping is generally only conducted a couple times a week – although of course, they are on hand to need clean or replace something in between visits if needed. While there are notable differences between hotels and serviced apartments, there are similarities, too. One advantage is that luxury serviced apartments have all the amenities you’d expect to find in a standard hotel building, such as a pool, gym, conference centre, restaurants and concierge.

Depending on the apartment chosen, additional services may be available. Some complexes offer meet and greet services, travel bookings, airport parking, foreign exchange facilities or a restaurant booking service. But perhaps the biggest benefit of all over booking a serviced apartment instead of a hotel is the difference in price. Serviced apartments often work out cheaper than an equivalent hotel, and while some will require you to book for a month or two to get a good deal, others offer impressive rates for a shorter stay.
