The UK serviced apartments industry experienced an immense growth in 2010, with several members of ASAP (Association of Serviced Apartment Providers) reporting an increase in occupancy and overall revenue generation in London and other areas as well. In London alone, ASAP members reported a 3% increase in occupancy levels taking the average occupancy for 2010 to 89%; the highest growth was reported between the months of July and September.
MoLi, a well-known member of ASAP and an established serviced apartment provider in Europe, with several serviced apartments in Canary Wharf and other areas of London, enjoyed almost full occupancy rates throughout the year. MoLi’s collection of Canary Wharf Serviced apartments, especially, experienced the most growth in comparison to the other collections, with most of the guests being business travellers visiting the financial district for meetings or short-term projects.
According to a survey held by MoLi, most guests staying in these serviced apartments found the location most convenient. The highest scoring point was the proximity to the Canary Wharf financial district, with the convenience of having fine dining establishments and shopping malls close by coming a close second.
The third most scoring points were the in-house facilities and MoLi’s services at the serviced apartments in the Canary Wharf area. Another highly appreciated point was the ease of access from these serviced apartments to the Canary Wharf Tube Station and the DLR translated to an easy commute and freedom from traffic to just about all parts of London for most guests.
MoLi’s Central London serviced apartments also enjoyed good occupancy rates, though they were a little lower than the Canary Wharf serviced apartments.
