What are Serviced Apartments?
A Serviced Apartment is a fully furnished apartment that can be booked for different periods of time and is fully equipped with everyday utensils. Short, medium and longer stays are offered. To move in, the guest needs nothing more than his or her suitcases; the rest is provided by the Serviced Apartment. That's in short the SMARTments business principle.
Each apartment has a kitchenette which, in addition to a dishwasher and coffee machine, also contains pots and pans, cutlery and crockery. Each room is equipped with a modern flat screen TV and high speed WiFi. The shared use of washing machines and dryers is also part of the established standard. The SMARTments business also offers an optional cleaning service.
Modern temporary living
Serviced Apartments are a segment in the hospitality and residential business sector. The concept originated in the United States, where business travellers, freelancers and newcomers make use of such flexible accommodation to arrive on time for their respective assignments and projects. Commuters who stay in another city during the week also benefit from this time-saving concept. For some years now, Serviced Apartments have also been available in Germany – hence simply book, move in, feel at home!
This is what distinguishes Serviced Apartments
Quick and easy availability, services and competitive prices are essential criteria for using Serviced Apartments. In the end, however, only the feel-good factor counts, and SMARTments business offers this in all categories.

For whom are serviced apartments suitable?
Usually it is business travellers who make use of Serviced Apartments. But of course our apartments can also be booked by private travellers - for example for city trips, for studying or for families. Private individuals use Serviced Apartments frequently to arrive in a new city and search from there in comfort for a new permanent accommodation.Especially in large cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, München, Mannheim oder Wien sind Serviced Apartments have become a welcome alternative.
Tailored to the needs of the guest
The price at SMARTments business varies according to the length of your stay. If the stay is longer, the cost of overnight stays will be reduced.
A further advantage of the Serviced Apartment is that the guest is independent of any time of day. Thanks to your fully equiped own kitchen, you always have the possibility to cater for yourself. There are shopping facilities in the immediate vicinity, and so you can not only eat what you want, but also when you want it - regardless of whether the kitchen of the house is still open or not.
All locations are close to the city centre or offer good transport connections to the city centre; tram and bus stops are usually within walking distance.

Serviced Apartments: What makes it different from hotels?
Compared to hotels, Serviced Apartments are often more comfortable; they offer more privacy and are less anonymous. At the same time, room prices are significantly lower than those of hotels. Our apartments are designed for people wishing to stay in a city for a longer period of time and who plan to reside there for a longer period of time.
Serviced Apartments: Differences to Aparthotels or Boardinghouses
The difference between an Aparthotel (Boardinghouse) and a Serviced Apartment lies in the range of services offered. Serviced Apartments with residential use are related to the classic apartment house, which means that the service is limited in comparison to the Aparthotel. Aparthotels, on the other hand, sometimes offer a 24-hour reception, an in-house restaurant or conference and fitness rooms. Aparthotels are therefore more comparable with classic hotels and their pricing.
Serviced apartments, on the other hand, focus on temporary and furnished living. Temporary living, temporary home and long-term rent are terms that SMARTments business stands for. The aspect of time flexibility is particularly important to many guests of Serviced Apartments, as they do not have time to look for accommodation because of a new assignment. They are happy about their temporary home, which offers all the amenities of a conventional apartment and serves as an ideal starting point for working and also exploring the city.
Last but not least, the location and transport connections also play a role. Serviced apartments can be found in different quarters of a city - also in trendy neighbourhoods and inner city locations, where classic apartment rents are constantly rising.
