Apartments with service
Apartments with service is a type of accommodation designed especially for stays of 1 night to 6 months. Stays of 28 nights or more are classified here as long stay.
The furnishings are oriented towards private apartments, and the focus is on self-sufficiency. Washing machines and dryers are often available in a laundry room for guest use. There is a limited range of services in the operation, especially for long-term guests, such as weekly apartment cleaning and change of linen. Guests are looked after at a reception desk, which is, however, only staffed by the hour. Outside opening hours, guests can access the apartments with service via digital solutions.
Further amenities, such as a restaurant or bar, are deliberately omitted. In the apartments with service itself, there is at most a small breakfast offer. Other services are covered by external providers and cooperations that can be booked on request. Due to the extended stays of the guests and the low level of services, operators are able to offer their serviced apartments in long stay up to 50 % cheaper than hotel rooms of a comparable category. Modern apartments with service often have a comfortably furnished communal room - often called a living room - where guests can watch TV, read or work.
