Must-Have Amenities To Look For In A Serviced Apartment

When it comes to traveling for business or leisure, accommodations can make or break the experience. While traditional hotels have long been the go-to for travelers, serviced apartments for short-term stays offer a unique alternative. Not only do they provide more space and privacy, but they also come with a range of amenities that make them an attractive option for many travelers. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the amenities of serviced apartments for short-term stays. 

Accommodation Amenities

One of the main advantages of staying in a serviced apartment is the range of accommodation options available. Whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or with a family, you can find an apartment to suit your needs. There are studio apartments, one-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom apartments, all of which offer separate living spaces, bedrooms, and kitchens.

In addition to the practical advantages of having more space, serviced apartments are also designed to be stylish and modern. You can expect to find contemporary furnishings and decor that make you feel at home right away.

At Aisiki Accommodation, we strive to provide a comprehensive list of amenities that we believe are important for serviced accommodation. However, we want to emphasize that these amenities are not listed in any particular order of importance or preference. Instead, we encourage our clients to consider all the amenities we offer and decide which ones are most important to them based on their unique needs and circumstances.

We understand that different guests have different requirements, which is why we provide a range of amenities to cater to various needs and preferences.

Cosy Ambiance

A serviced apartment should offer a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere that feels like a home away from home. Look for apartments with comfortable furnishings, good lighting, and tasteful decor.

  • Hardwood Flooring 

Not only do hardwood floors add style to an apartment living space, but they have practical benefits as well. Compared to traditional carpets, hardwood floors are easier to clean, more durable, and can improve the air quality in your space. Be sure to look out for hardwood flooring in prospective apartment units, especially in areas where the floor may come into contact with moisture like kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways.

Wifi Access

This amenity has evolved into a more fundamental one in today’s fast-paced, technologically advanced environment. These days, even rental agreements include acceptance of the internet, so having access to it in a service apartment is crucial. Make sure the apartment has a long-distance fiber internet connection line that provides the best speed in each in each unit’s rooms.

Kitchen Amenities

One of the most significant benefits of staying in a serviced apartment is having access to a fully-equipped kitchen. Unlike traditional hotel rooms, serviced apartments come with everything you need to prepare meals at home. This can be a great way to save money on dining out while traveling.

In a serviced apartment, you can expect to find a full range of kitchen appliances, including a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. You’ll also have all the utensils, cookware, and tableware you need to cook and serve meals.

  • A Fully Functional Oven: 

The adoption and blending of various cuisines have increased the use of an oven. The modern cook makes the most of an oven despite the fact that Indian cuisine rarely uses one. Because of this, a fully functional four-gas oven has become a requirement in a well-designed service apartment.

Laundry Facility

While many buildings will feature a common floor laundry facility, washer-dryers are a more recent and significant addition to the usual service apartment facilities. This practical feature is typically available in the separate “service area” that most service flats provide. If not a dryer, then for the benefit of the residents, a typical washing machine is placed there.

Public transportation access

Being close to public transportation can be very valuable. If you commute by public transit, keep an eye out for nearby bus stops or train stations. 

Nearby Transportation Links:

  • 1. Watford Junction Station and Watford Tube Station: just a 13min walk via Clarendon Road.
  • 2. Watford Subway Station: a 15 min walk via Cassiobury Park Avenue and Bushey.
  • 3. Train Station: 7 min ride through Beechen Grove/A411.
  • 4. Bus Stops on Exchange Road: Stop L and Stop K.
  • 5. M1 motorway: an hour’s drive through Beechen Grove/A411, Stephenson Way/A4008, and Exit 5.


Need a place to park a personal car or motorcycle? Most apartments will offer some type of parking via parking lots, gated lots, or access to garages where you can keep your vehicle. Keep in mind that some apartments charge extra for parking, especially if parking stalls or garages are assigned. 

  • Nearby parking:

If you’re staying in one of the serviced apartments we provided, you’ll be pleased to know that there is nearby parking available in the area. Depending on the location of your apartment, you might find a parking garage, designated parking lot, or street parking nearby.

Safety Equipment

A serviced apartment should have safety equipment such as smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, and emergency exit plans. Check that the apartment has clear safety protocols in place and that they have been tested regularly.

Water Supply

Water scarcity is becoming more prevalent in metropolitan cities. You can avoid future hassles by checking if there is a 24/7 water supply in the apartment block. You could also take extra care to check the quality of water received.

Waste Disposal

It’s wise to check on waste disposal methods followed in your apartment complex. If your city has regulations with respect to segregation and disposal of waste, check if the apartment has a system to ensure the same is carried out.

Ultimately, the most important amenities in finding serviced accommodation will depend on your personal needs and preferences. It’s a good idea to create a list of amenities that are important to you before you begin your search so that you can narrow down your options and find the perfect accommodation for your needs.

Staying in a serviced apartment for short-term stays offers a range of amenities that can make your travel experience more comfortable and enjoyable. With fully-equipped kitchens, laundry appliances, and a range of entertainment amenities, serviced apartments offer the convenience and comfort of home while you’re on the road.
