The new opening builds on the success that Skyline has already experienced in Brazil, offering Corporate Accommodation solutions within 21 cities across the country. The Brazilian HQ is located in Sao Paulo and the new Rio de Janeiro office is a strategic opening, set to give support to the increasing number of travellers heading to the city for business.
Skyline offers a carefully chosen portfolio of serviced apartments. Each property is vetted by an experienced supply chain manager to ensure that it meets the corporate client standards. Skyline Operations Manager in Rio de Janeiro, Raphael Bastos says: ‘’our clients know that they will be staying in a well presented and fully provisioned living accommodation for the duration of their visit’’.
Unlike a hotel, serviced apartments mean that clients have full freedom and independence - with their own door key - and a full provision of cooking, living and relaxation facilities. As with a hotel, however, a serviced apartment provides a full maid and concierge service so that the apartment is kept to the highest standard and the client can just relax and enjoy all of the benefits of their high-end traveller accommodation.
Thiago Hahn, Managing Director of Skyline says: ‘’our team of accommodation consultants in the Rio de Janeiro office are also friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. They are passionate about providing excellent client solutions and will ensure that the client receives the right level of service during their stay. We will provide city information on transportation, guidance on safety and other services to suit client needs’’.
Skyline offers a range of serviced apartments close to the Rio coast line including: Leblon, Barra da Tijuca, Ipanema, Botafogo and Copacabana area, as well as other units across Rio. The coastal areas tend to be the most popular with business travellers as they are amongst the safest places. Rio is in fact one of the most expensive cities in the world for accommodation, so serviced apartments offer a highly cost-effective solution to over-priced hotel rooms.
