As we’ve already seen, planning your new life in Lugano means also coping with some bureaucratic aspects, like seeking your new accommodation in advance.
Nevertheless, looking for a flexible and comfortable house isn’t always a piece of cake! That’s why today we’re going to show you a truly valuable solution: serviced apartments.
Let’s discover them into detail!
What’s a serviced apartment?
Serviced living is an innovative concept that rethinks the home as a service: that’s based on the idea of outsourcing housework and sharing infrastructure, namely a trend that’s becoming more and more widespread in Switzerland.
Those apartments feature a minimum stay of one month, but they’re rather rental apartments with supplementary services than a hotel-like environment! That’s why – as flexible temporary accommodations – they represent the perfect solution for business travelers and those who are moving to Lugano for the first time.
4 main advantages of living in a serviced apartment
1. As effortless as booking a hotel room
Serviced apartments are a middle ground between a traditional city apartment and a hotel room, namely a flexible solution for your “feel at home” stays in Lugano.
Indeed, the most cutting-edge providers, like City Pop, make it possible to manage all the booking and services’ process digitally with an app, in a way that’s as simple as booking a hotel room!
2. Cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and functionality
We’re talking about apartments that have the same affordability of any traditional accommodation, but – thanks to their digital features – all administrative aspects, services and payments can be managed digitally within the app and a connected platform.
What’s more, they can be monthly or even weekly rented by providing you with a flexible contract!
3. Centrally located
Another outstanding benefit of these solutions is that they’re centrally placed and perfectly connected with the public transport!
Moreover, just consider that renting a serviced apartment in Lugano means living a short distance from the lake and the city center: that’s why the most prestigious ones tend to be located in strategic areas like Via Besso, a stone's throw from the city’s main attractions and the funicular station!
4. Fully furnished with outstanding amenities included
Finally, a serviced apartment comes fully furnished, professionally managed and marketed, offering a wide range of services that’d make you experience a home-like environment with the comfort of a hotel’s utilities, but providing far more space, affordability, privacy, and several specific amenities!
Some of those services may be:
Room service, free Wi-Fi and TV;
Car & Bike sharing;
Housekeeping, including towel replacement, making of bed, and cleaning;
Laundry room, rec room, and private minimarket;
Health insurance consulting;
Private cooking facilities and a full-size kitchen;
In-apartment dishwasher, washing machine, and dryers;
Access to gyms, restaurants, meeting spaces, coworking, and concierges.
