What is an Apartment Hotel?

Apartment Hotels offer self-contained accommodation, with separate bedrooms, plus kitchen and laundry facilities, and may not have some of the services of a traditional hotel, such as room service, daily housekeeping, and on-site restaurants or bars.

Travellers prefer apartment hotels, which is a serviced apartment style, for a number of reasons:

  • Privacy & Escape - Separate bedrooms allow privacy and quiet from your travel mates. Weekly housekeeping services mean you will be left to sleep, without disturbance.
  • Great Value - With rates comparable to traditional hotels, guests can save significantly on their food costs by utilizing our great kitchen facilities - rather than pricey room service or minibars.
  • Spaciousness - Our apartments are much bigger than many hotel rooms - open plan living and separate bedrooms make our apartments much more usable than traditional hotel rooms.
  • Less environmental impact - Guests who are conscious of their carbon footprint will delight in knowing they can do their bit by choosing a Waldorf Apartment. We use refillable soap containers in our bathrooms in many of our properties - saving over 200,000 miniature soap and shampoo bottles from being created, every year! Self-catering means guests can shop to personal preference of ingredients for your meals, to limit plastic usage or to purchase locally made products, just like you do at home.


What is Express Check-Out
