Benefits of Long-term Serviced Apartments

There are multiple advantages of choosing a long-term serviced apartment in South Africa, from flexibility to access to exclusive amenities. A serviced apartment is essentially long-stay temporary accommodation; not so much a hotel room but also not a long long-term solution, such as renting an apartment with a fixed lease.

Serviced apartments come equipped with a kitchen, living and dining area, bedroom, bathroom, and sometimes a work or office space. However, much like a hotel guest, a serviced apartment guest often has access to all the amenities that the hotel has to offer.
These are the main benefits of choosing a long-term serviced apartment:



One of the major benefits of a long-term serviced apartment is that it provides tenants with flexibility. You can choose how long your stay will be, from a few weeks or several months. If you’re constantly on the move, for work or other purposes, long-term serviced apartments in South Africa would be a great choice for you. You don’t need to commit to a fixed-term lease, so you aren’t tied down to staying for a predetermined length of time, and there is no notice period.




Long-term serviced apartments are typically located within major cities, affording you access to business districts as well as restaurants, entertainment complexes, and other services. If the above sounds appealing to you, a long-term serviced apartment is perfect for you.

Serviced apartments in Cape Town South Africa enable you to stay in centralised areas at more affordable prices than you would pay when renting a regular apartment, so you will have the opportunity to stay in many areas you may have not been able to afford.




Although shorter-term stays may appear more costly, bear in mind that they are ultimately cheaper in the long run than typical stays at hotels.





One of the best things about long-term serviced apartments is that they come fully furnished. This means that you needn’t worry about having access to all the appliances and furnishings you’d find in your home.

A typical hotel room is outfitted with a kettle, sachets of tea and coffee, a hair dryer, and a safe, at the very least. In a serviced apartment, you can enjoy all the home comforts you are used to, including a well-equipped kitchen, living and dining area, and a generously sized bedroom and bathroom.

Access to Hotel and Spa services

Unlike renting, where you generally need to service or clean your home yourself or pay to have it cleaned, serviced long-term apartments are just that: serviced. For an extended stay, a regular cleaning service is extremely convenient. Bed linen and towels will be washed and replaced regularly, as well as having access to maintenance service, should anything malfunction in your apartment.




Security should always be on your list of requirements and serviced apartments definitely prioritize the safety and security of their guests. From access-controlled entrances to CCTV cameras, you can rest assured that you and your apartment are protected around the clock. With the addition of hotel security guards, you will have peace of mind during your stay.

High-end amenities

High-end amenities come as standard in serviced apartments, such as uncapped Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and gyms. These are the types of perks that can be expected in a long-term serviced apartment. Not only this, but depending on where your apartment is situated, you may have access to a hotel’s restaurant, and even a spa!
