Where were you staying back in 1997? Our guess is traditional hotels: box rooms with too little fridge space and too many rules, eye-watering rates and gut-busting booking processes.
It was in one of those rooms that our founders came up with a new concept. Way before apartment stays and home-sharing became the norm, they dreamed of making staying away from home great by helping people feel like they belong, wherever they are. They wanted to meet travellers’ needs and reshape hospitality by providing all sorts of apartments for all sorts of people in all sorts of places.
And so The Serviced Apartment Company (SACO) – the brand that started it all – was born.
Designed primarily with business travellers in mind, SACO eventually became the older sibling to a family of brands launched under the edyn umbrella. Since pioneering serviced apartments in the UK, we’ve set the pace for our competitors thanks to our innovative approach and unique guest experience.
SACO believes aparthotels (which have a fully-manned front desk and check-in service) and serviced apartments (which offer self-check-in or meet-and-greet service for the independently minded) offer so much more than a standard hotel room. More space. More choice. More flexibility. And, above all, better value – did you know staying in an apartment could save you up to 30% compared to a similar standard hotel?
Whether you’re staying for business or pleasure, for one night or one year, our apartments are kitted out to the highest standards and designed with easy living in mind, complete with everything you need to work, relax, or entertain in style. Think spacious and comfortable living spaces, superfast secure Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchens, a washer/dryer and dishwasher, smart HD TVs and Apple TV, and ample storage space. Many are even pet-friendly.
At SACO we pride ourselves on our human touch.
Always listening and responding in a way that goes above and beyond. In an increasingly virtual world, we understand the value of one-to-one communications and tailored, personal service. We want our guests to feel looked after, so we go out of our way to help them find apartments that suit their individual needs, and we strive to develop products and services that make their lives easier. Maybe that’s why they come back to SACO time and time again.
