What Puts a Serviced Apartment in the Luxury Accommodation Bracket?

Sometimes when you search for serviced apartments, prices can be similar in different places, with one option falling into the luxury accommodation bracket while the other might just be regular self-catering accommodation. What distinguishes luxury accommodation from any other serviced apartment available for rent?

Exclusively listed as a luxury serviced apartment

In most cases, it really is just a matter of listing an apartment for long-term or short-term rent as being a luxury option to push it into the luxury accommodation bracket, but guests still have to be able to see and feel the luxury the paying for.

Location of the apartment building

Some of the best luxury serviced apartments are situated in traditionally unassuming locations, but the location still plays a major role in pushing any serviced apartment into the luxury accommodation bracket.

A traditional Victorian villa located in Clifton, Bristol, converted into a serviced apartment building looks no different on the outside, for instance, but given its location, it can be safely assumed that the apartments on offer are more for the luxury accommodation market.

Exterior decor and styling

The exterior decor and styling almost inherently come with the location of the apartment building, because there are standards to uphold in specific neighborhoods. If for instance the apartment building is located on some kind of high street, that almost automatically pushes it into the luxury accommodation bracket, and its outward appearance has to match that standard.

Interior decor and styling

Luxury self-catering apartments often have some great distinction in their interior styling as well, with the most refined of these buildings priding themselves in a back-story that goes with each individual unit. Often the styling is individualised as well so that you get a different experience each time you stay in a different unit at the same property.

The price

The price factor as can be associated with the luxury element of a serviced apartment perhaps goes without saying, but it’s not a simple matter of the higher the rates, the more luxurious the apartment is.

The highest-priced option at a serviced apartment building in the heart of London might be priced the same as a standard or deluxe apartment in Clifton, Bristol, but that doesn’t mean it matches the one in Clifton in luxury. Distinctions are often made for family accommodation, student accommodation, studio suites, etc, but that’s not all which goes into the pricing and so pricing alone isn’t a direct indicator of the luxuriousness of the serviced apartment.

Distinctive luxury amenities

We made mention of a similarly priced serviced apartment located in London to one perhaps located in a distinctively upmarket area such as Clifton, Bristol, but in addition to that contributing to the induction of a serviced apartment into the luxury bracket, there are also some very distinctive luxury amenities.

Something as simple as Egyptian cotton sheets makes for one such distinction and together with the other such amenities on offer, the whole experience becomes a luxurious one you’d be happy to pay the requisite premium for.
