Travelling is a recreation that most humans long for. For some, it is to have fun forgetting the work stress and responsibilities back home, for some others it is a journey to find themselves and for those who travel for work, it is all work and no play. Whoever it might be and whatever the reason for travel, the journey is filled with good memories only if the accommodation and services available are of a good standard. Hotels are the obvious option, except they are hotels. They do not provide the privacy or the luxuries of a home. The feeling of coming back home after a long day’s work or sightseeing is what we crave for. This craving is fulfilled by a fast growing startup on the block, 14 square, which is providing homes away from home called “serviced apartments” for the digital India.

THE COMFORTS OF HOME PLUS THE SERVICES OF A HOTEL, JUST A CLICK AWAY
The concept of a serviced apartment being pretty new in India, the people at 14 square had to overcome the challenge of ignorance and had to create awareness about the obvious advantages of providing homes for travelers. With the comforts of home such as furnishings, kitchen with necessary cutlery, a television combined with the luxuries of hotels such as free wifi, free breakfast and daily housekeeping, these serviced apartments are places you wouldn’t want to leave even after your vacation is over. Although the demand for such places is limited today, the graph will keep going up in the near future. The apartment owners and space providers also have an opportunity to rent out the place confidently without having to worry about its maintenance. To book an apartment, all one has to do is, go on the website 14square.in. Additional services and facilities like banquet halls and gyms can be looked for.
THE FUTURE OF LEASED SPACES
Within 2 years of its inception, 14 square today claims to provide serviced apartments in 21 cities across India. It provides spaces for corporate organizations to accommodate its employees and its customers include Almetric, Mahindra, Capita and Sandvik. Using technology to achieve infrastructure control is what 14 square dreams to attain in its future endeavors. Read more about Indian Startups.
