What does aparthotel mean?

As the name suggests, an aparthotel is a mixture between an apartment and a hotel, which is also often referred to as ‘extended stay’ or ‘serviced accommodation’. What aparthotel means is a mix between the luxury of a hotel room and all the comforts of an apartment, designed to provide a unique style of accommodation which serves as a home from home for travellers.

What is an aparthotel used for?

An aparthotel is the perfect type of accommodation for people who travel frequently for extended periods of time, as it gives them a chance to create their own space. Designed to help travellers like you feel at home when you are on the road, aparthotels provide a bunch of creature comforts you won’t usually find in hotels.

As the newest addition to the world of accommodation, aparthotels for rent have steadily gained popularity amongst travellers of all sorts. Whether you are on a business trip or a holiday, you can enjoy the benefits of staying at an aparthotel with your colleagues or friends – you’ll be treated to the comfort of having your own bedroom while also being able to spend time together in the shared kitchen and living room spaces.

Aparthotels are also very convenient if you are in between homes or relocating to a different city and on the hunt for a permanent home.

Aparthotel for families

Another demographic aparthotels are a real hit with is families who travel with children. If you fall into that category, you would be familiar with the struggle of trying to cram your entire household in one room, dodging toys scattered across the floor and hiding in the bathroom to get a moment of peace.

Designed as a home from home solution for your domestic woes on the road, aparthotels combine a separate bedroom for the adults with shared living room area where the kids can reign over the TV and spread out their toys without being in the way while you enjoy some quiet time with a good book.

Aparthotel vs hotel

When compared to a regular hotel, an aparthotel has a number of additional features which will completely transform your stay. A step up from the traditional hotel rooms’ kettle, most aparthotels have fully-fitted kitchen amenities, so you can prepare full meals in the comfort of your accommodation instead of spending a small fortune on eating out or ordering room service.

Aparthotels also offer plenty more wiggle room, allowing you to spread out and get work done during the day, or kick back and relax in the evening, perhaps even invite a couple of guests over for some home-cooked food.

Check in and check out times at aparthotels

Unlike traditional hotels, aparthotels are also much more flexible with check-in and check-out hours. To ensure optimal convenience for their quests, most aparthotels allow you to adjust your arrival and departure times according to your travel arrangements.

Great customer service doesn’t end there either – you’ll often find a selection of guest perks in your aparthotel, provided to make your trip even more comfortable and create a real home from home vibe.

Last, but not least, aparthotels are easier on your budget than a regular hotel. You might need to book from two nights up to a week as aparthotels often have a minimum stay requirement, but overall your nightly rate would work out cheaper than staying at a hotel for a night.

Aparthotel vs apartment

More than simply an apartment that you rent, aparthotels offer a number of perks to make your stay more luxurious and add an extra level of relaxation. The stylishly furnished, spacious lounge area is kitted out with a high-tech hub featuring super speed broadband and a state-of-the-art TV, so you can enjoy a truly cinematic experience if you decide to stay in for a movie night.

The fully-fitted kitchen, equipped with a fridge and a stove, is the perfect clean slate for cooking up a storm – you have all the amenities at your disposal, without having to work around someone else’s stuff (a-la AirBnB). It’s the perfect setting to get cosy and break up your evenings out with a delicious meal at your home from home.

Aparthotels are also usually found in central locations, which gives you the perfect opportunity to settle in and explore the city you’re staying in at leisure. Both business and leisure travellers can benefit from being in the heart of the action, where they can immerse themselves into the city and get a taste of living like a local.

On top of all the privacy and modern amenities usually associated with a home from home, aparthotels include an additional cleaning service as part of the apartment rental for long term lets (8+ nights). This is perfect for business travellers spending long periods away from home, or families holidaying for a couple of weeks.
