When it comes to planning a holiday and choosing accommodation, there are three main types of people. The first type opts for the traditional hotel room because of its comfort, security and cleanliness. The second prefers to rent an apartment to feel “at home”, to live more like a local, and to pay less than in a hotel. And those in the last group want a mix of both and tend towards the classic “Hotel-apartment”. Up until now, that’s nothing new. Only, two years ago we apparead on the scene of professional, touristic accomodation with an innovative concept. What is the concept about ? Sweet inn rents apartments with hotel services that doesn’t come under the category of “Hotel-apartment”. We understand that you might be a little confused, therefore, we are going to explain our idea with 5 points.

1. Designer apartments

With Sweet Inn, each city has its own team of interior designers. This is one of our strengths and what makes us unique: all of our accommodations are designed and decorated by keen designers who love their city. And that makes all the difference. Unlike standard hotel rooms, each of our apartments has its own style. Each interior is inspired by the atmosphere or history of its surrounding area. Therefore, a studio near the Colosseum in Rome looks nothing like a duplex on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. Our decorators work tirelessly to design, renovate and fully decorate each apartment. Presently speaking, more than 250 apartments have passed through their expert hands. Their mission is to allow you to discover the city you are staying in, even through your apartment. From the furniture to the wallpaper- and even to the choice of bedside lamp- nothing is left to chance.

2. Much more than just an apartment

As well as being unique and designer, Sweet Inn apartments offer all the extras that you get in top hotels. From welcome packs to 4* bedding, to free wifi and even 24/7 concierge service, you can benefit from all those hotel luxuries that we love so much. Upon your arrival, you can even ask for a bottle of champagne or a box of chocolates to mark a special occasion. At Sweet Inn, customisation is our motto. That’s why we’ve set up a range of “à la carte” services which can be tailored to suit you. These include transport to/from the airport or station, food deliveries, dry cleaning, or even a private chef who will come to your home to prepare you delicious local recipes.

Another significant feature of Sweet Inn apartments is that they belong to us. We hire out OUR apartments. You won’t sleep at anyone else. No family photos in every corner of the house; no locked cabinets hiding the owners’ belongings. And since we own our apartments, we insure them like a hotel and, of course, subject them to security regulations (safe, extinguisher etc.). A non-negligible guarantee when you want to travel with peace of mind.

3. Much more than just a hotel

For many people, the standard and quality of service provided by a large hotel chain are essential to travel worry-free. But what about local experience? Sweet Inn’s apartments melt into the scenery of private buildings with their local residents- ideal for feeling like a Parisian in Paris or a Roman in Rome. In addition to the authentic aspect, this guarantees you unparalleled independence and privacy in comparison to hotels. Finally, you’re guaranteed to stay at the heart of your favourite area without having to pay exorbitant prices. Whether you prefer the Bairro Alto area in Lisbon so you can party until morning, the Grands Boulevards in Paris for a shopping trip, or  Poble Nou in Barcelona for a terrace meal with a sea view, the choice is yours.

4. A lobby at the heart of each city

Just because our apartments give you freedom and independence doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the comfort and tranquillity of a space where our team is on-site. Sweet Inn has a lobby at your disposal situated in the heart of every city. Although picking up your keys from there isn’t a must, since your Guest Relations agent will be waiting for you directly at your apartment, you are welcome to pass by at any moment during your stay. Whether you want to drop off your luggage after checkout, have a coffee, use our computers, print a document or ask for information, a warm and energetic team will always be there to help you. A bit like in a hotel, just cooler!
