What are Aparthotels?
Aparthotels originated in Europe, which provide “hotel services with apartment style managements”. Most of them include bedrooms, bathrooms, living room, and kitchen. This type of apartments allow guests to feel like home while they are able to enjoy high quality hotel services. To satisfy short-term guests’ needs, aparthotels developed more flexible leases, hotel services, and well-rounded facilities.
Differences between aparthotels and hotels:
|Unit of stays||Mostly monthly||Days|
|Targeted Customers||1. High-end business people |

2. General Public
This type of apartments are usually located within high-quality neighborhoods which include hotel services and amenities. These services lead to slightly more expensive rents than hotels or monthly rentals.
The setup of regular hotels usually only includes a bedroom and a bathroom. They have smaller sizes and less equipments. Since the targeted customers are the general public, the rents are slightly cheaper.

Although the sizes still differ among different rooms, the large spaces prevent guests from feeling clustered. If you prefer living in housings with large spaces, we strongly recommend choosing aparthotels.
3. Hotel Services
Although aparthotels are different from hotels, they still provide hotel services such as collecting packages/food deliveries and reserving Uber. Most of them operate 24 hours which provides immediate services. You do not have to worry if you face any difficulties during midnight.
4. Convenient Transportation
The targeted customers of aparthotels are usually business people so the apartments are mostly located downtown where transportations is convenient. The location prevents guests from wasting time finding nearby restaurants when having meetings outside of the apartment.
Aparthotels are usually located within high-quality neighborhoods to provide a comfortable living condition so the designs and structures are usually never reconstructed. The original designs include compartment walls that are constructed with cement to create soundproof apartments. So feel free to enjoy your time!
6. No Additional Utility Bills
All fees are already included within the rents of aparthotels so guests do not have to pay any additional fees except certain paid services. Landlords for non-aparthotels may set different rules which may lead to miscommunications and conflicts between both parties. However, aparthotels eliminate these problems which make it the best option for you.
7. Cleaning Services
Aparthotels offer professional cleaning services such as changing bed sheets, cleaning bathrooms/bedrooms, and sanitizing common areas periodically to guarantee a comfortable living condition for guests.
