The serviced apartment segment is growing, and this not least because the products are so convincing. Your product!

Since 2013, the SO!APART Award has therefore been honouring the best serviced apartments of the segment - as recognition with a positive resonance far beyond the expert circles.

Last year YAYS (Barcelona), Felix Suiten im Lebendigen Haus am Zwinger (Dresden), my4walls Serviced Apartments (Hamburg), ADAPT APARTMENTS (Berlin), APART ARTHOTEL Munich Airport Boardinghaus (Achering/Freising) and Adina Apartment Hotel Leipzig received the award. The special award for the convincing interaction with the neighbourhood went to YAYS.

 

Yays winning the SO!APART award for the contribution to the Serviced Apartment sector is a great acknowledgement for the Yays team. It makes me feel really proud to see Yays is making a difference in this unique sector. Exciting to see when the first Yays will open its doors in Germany!
