What’s The Difference Between Serviced Apartments and Guest Houses?

Both serviced apartments and guest houses provide accommodation options for people looking for more than just a hotel room when they are travelling. However, there are some major differences between the two. Serviced Apartments are available for short-term and long-term stay, providing hotel-like amenities and services such as room service, daily housekeeping, a gym, laundry service and the ability to do your own laundry, and swimming pools. High quality serviced apartments like, Lalco Residency in Mumbai, offer all of the comforts of home with all of the services of a hotel.

Whereas, most guest houses offer very basic accommodations, with access to a kitchen or living space, but without any additional services. The other major difference is guest houses often have some shared facilities like kitchens or living spaces, whereas serviced apartments offer complete privacy and your own kitchen and own living space in addition to your standard private bedroom and bathroom that hotels offer.

Serviced apartments offer a better home away from home experience

You have more private space to live and work in. The best part about the serviced apartment is that you are not stuck paying the high prices hotels charge whether you are in a city like Mumbai or a town like Lonavala. At most serviced apartments, you have the option to do your own laundry, or send it out to be pressed, folded or even dry cleaned. You have the option to cook your own food in a full sized fully functioning kitchen, or you can order from our 24/7 dining options. You have the option of bringing your own car and park it free of cost, or using one of our chauffeur driven cars.

Guest houses are basically houses where the owners live or manage with a small staff. Generally the staff is not 24/7 and offers limited services. At a serviced apartment staff and services are available 24/7. Often there is a common room where all the guests can gather and have breakfast together and lounge. Serviced apartments on the other hand, give more privacy to their guests as they can enjoy their meal in their own personal dining area and lounge in their own personal living room. Serviced apartments are almost like leasing a house for a short period of time with pre-hired personal staff.
