Causeway Bay Lodgings: Why it’s cheaper to stay in a serviced apartment over a hotel

Residing in a hotel on a long-term basis can be an expensive thing on its own, especially if you’re extending your stay in Hong Kong for more than a week to a month. That’s why a more affordable lodging alternative is offered in the market in the form of a service apartment (made available for short or long-term payments). A serviced residence is an accommodation that is fully furnished and fully managed. It generally combines some of the luxuries of a hotel, with the usual comforts of a home.

Who can stay in a serviced accommodation?

Any serviced apartment in Hong Kong can definitely accommodate individuals or groups, as it provides more privacy and more space compared to a hotel. Instead of being confined in a place that only has one room, opt to stay in a managed accommodation that provides more room options (units are typically provided with a bedroom, en suite bathroom and kitchen). So if you’re traveling solo for a certain time frame or going with a group, a rented residence is certainly an economical choice. Businessmen or even corporate employees that travel in and out of the city can also benefit from having a stable base (saves a lot on business travel costs). Travelers, whether backpacking solo or visiting with friends, can also benefit from a rented apartment.

Fully furnished serviced units

A serviced residence already comes with a fully furnished unit, so you’ll no longer have to worry about transferring or buying new fixtures for the apartment (less cost on your end). Everything will be provided for, even before you arrive. But other than that, fully equipped kitchens are also offered in most apartments, which gives you the option to prepare your own meals and more.
Fully managed apartments

A managed apartment won’t be referred to as being ‘serviced’ if it didn’t live up to its standards. And it’s not at all different from a hotel because it also has the usual 24-hour concierge and security watch. Moreover, most serviced residences offer daily housekeeping, as well as complimentary access to an in-house fitness gym, business center and laundry facility. Of course, the only difference here is that lodgings of this type are offered at a lower cost (without having to sacrifice quality).

A serviced accommodation in the heart of Causeway Bay

If there’s one serviced residence that truly spells home comforts and more, it would have to be V Causeway Bay! The V establishment actually offers penthouse apartments that boast of panoramic city views. But that’s not all! V Causeway Bay also offers their lodgers’ access to the V Play, which includes barbeque facilities that residents can freely use.

If these offerings aren’t enough, wait until you check into their rooms. Each one opens up to a bedroom that is prepped with crisp starched linens and feathery soft pillows. Private bathrooms are also built with a seated rain shower stall, bathtub, LCD TV and toiletries. Kitchens on the other hand are fully equipped, which comes with a fresh batch of herbs, and a professional set of cookware and kitchenware.

The commendable managed apartment also offers an airport limousine pick-up, as well as a 24-hour security service. They also have self-service laundry facilities, which residents can freely access.
