The end of the year is approaching and we are - albeit in a rather cliché way – taking a moment to reflect on 2016.

For many 2016 has been a year of change with huge economic and political shake-ups happening across the world, leaving us to question what will happen next.

Here at A Space in the City we are no different. Change has been a prominent feature of 2016 with a focus on growth within the serviced apartment sector.


With both Cardiff and Swansea’s Christmas lights being switched-on last week it’s clear that the Christmas countdown has begun.

Wales’ biggest cities are getting into the festive spirit and there’s plenty to get involved no matter what age.

Last year Cardiff was rated one of the top cities in the UK where people enjoy visiting a Christmas market and the capital's Yuletide shopping bonanza is nothing less than spectacular.

Like all worldwide news stories, the first question on many business owner’s lips is… will this affect my business sector?

Saturated in controversy the US election has been a trending topic for many months. With Donald Trump’s recent (and some may say surprising) win we ask how this will affect the UK and in particular it’s tourism.

Despite the election occurring across the pond Britain will obviously experience some of the repercussions of the vote.

Travelling alone is a great chance to experience new surroundings and cultures.

However, travelling alone for the very first time can be a rather intimidating experience as it has its perils as well.

Our tips for the solo traveller ensure that you are prepared for the trip, avoid any unnecessary mishaps and ultimately enjoy your time away.

Serviced apartments are, without a doubt, on the rise.

The Global Serviced Apartments Industry Report 2016/17 details this growth and discusses whether past and present challenges have helped or hindered the progress.

Serviced apartments source a lot of business from corporate stays. In recent years, the corporate hospitality sector has experienced some significant changes to the way it works.

In recent years’ demand for serviced apartments has soared according to Knight Frank’s 2016 Global Cities Report.

The report states that over the past seven years the serviced apartments industry has grown by 80 per cent with more than 750,000 properties worldwide and the trend is set to continue.

Savills 2015 serviced apartments report noted an increase in the number of international visitors.

A record number of runners are set to take part in the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 2 October.

On race day road closures will be in operation from as early as 4.30am on Castle Street. The main road closures along the route will be in force from 8am spanning from Cathays to Cardiff Bay.

To avoid any unnessecary delays on the Sunday make sure to plan your route in advance and allow for extra time.

11 weeks ago Britain experienced one of the biggest shake ups in recent times.

The results from the EU referendum were made clear and it was apparent that the Brexit vote was victorious. Since then Britain has been in a constant state of uncertainty.

Continuing on with the theme of uncertainty, the upcoming American presidential election is surrounded with controversy. Support for Donald Trump and his increasingly unpredictable foreign policy grows and the recent news concerning Hilary Clinton’s pneumonia rocks the scale even more.

Here at A Space in the City we look forward to any opportunity to that allows us to grow as a company.

We are delighted to have recently expanded our business in Swansea and attained a full time office in the city centre. Ensuring we are on hand to deliver excellent standards to our guests.

Our new Swansea office not only allows us to be close to our guests and their needs, it also means we are close by to our Swansea apartments. This includes our brand new Marina Villas and Llys Arian apartments.
