What is the Serviced Apartments Industry?

The Serviced Apartments industry comprises establishments that operate self-contained apartments for short-term (one to six nights), medium-term (seven nights to one month) and long-term (longer than one month) stays. Serviced apartments contain a kitchen or kitchenette and usually have separate lounge or dining facilities. Serviced apartments are generally cheaper than equivalent hotel rooms due to fewer complex facilities and fewer daily services provided.
