Serviced Apartments:
The serviced apartments model in the UK developed out of the holiday home vacation rental sector, short let, self-catering, corporate housing and the all-suite, extended stay aparthotel around 1980 and quickly established the new short let self-catering London serviced apartments sector. Serviced Apartments initially flourished in the corporate accommodation sector in response to demand for larger, more comfortable, better-priced executive accommodation for business travel, temporary assignments, company training and corporate relocation. There was initially a concentration of furnished apartments in London as a major business travel destination, but the serviced apartment model rapidly spread to cities and towns across the UK and in particular to Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle and Sheffield as well as Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland and with this spread of serviced apartments London was no longer the only city in which the benefits of more space and lower rates could be enjoyed.

Some serviced apartment brands developed multi-unit serviced studio accommodation, introduced reception areas and moved into the C1 license aparthotel sector occupied by the all-suite hotels and hotel companies and resulted in the extended stay hotel or aparthotel model. They are a popular compromise and the best of both worlds for many. They provide hotel facilities such as reception, self-service snack and bar and a communal area to meet other guests, whilst still offering a self-contained serviced apartment. Ideal for corporate housing, as well as for training, temporary assignments & relocation. The Extended Stay Apart hotels London concept has added another dimension to the London hotels sector, championed by the popular global hotel brands such as Staybridge, edyn, Staycity, Adagio, Residence Inn and Hyatt House.

The much more established HMO lettings sector of much smaller residential units, the aparthotel model and modern student housing familiar to the new millennial generation combined into an offering which married accommodation, cooking facilities, social space, work space and social events into the co-living concept in London and worldwide.
