- What is a “self-catering”, and a “serviced” apartment?
Most properties on on our web site are privately owned “self-catering” apartments available for short stays from as little a 3 nights in some cases , though usually from 5 night minimum stays. They are fully equipped and may have maid service weekly if your stay is longer than a week. Linen change is always left for you even if there is no maid service during your stay. A “serviced apartment ” , sometimes called an ” aparthotel “, will be a building like a hotel where all apartments are part of the same management, have a reception desk/manager on site, and usually maid service 5 days a week. They are convenient for those wanting some of the conveniences of a hotel yet the privacy of their own apartment.
