Thus, the VDR-certificates are like the recommendation of a good friend.

What Certified Business Hotel is for business canvassers, the new seal “Certified Serviced Apartment ®” is for those, who live and work in a different city for weeks or even months. The list of criteria is based on the certification system of

Apartmentservice by Boardinghouse Consulting and TÜV (Control Board) Rhineland, existing since 2005.
