An aparthotel is simply an apartment and hotel in one. The apartment differs from a hotel room in that it is equipped more like self-catering accommodation. This means you can prepare your own meals and have a more home from home experience. Many aparthotels also boast a concierge service and the apartments are serviced daily or weekly depending on your requirements.
Aparthotels are particularly suitable for business travellers, or those looking for an extended stay where eating out every night is not practical, cost effective or healthy.
The rise of the aparthotel is bridging the gap between the traditional hotel model and the B&B or self-catering cottage. Accommodation is becoming more fluid with choice and simplicity being demanded by the end user who requires a more relaxed approach to travel.
