4 Best Serviced Apartments in Karawaci
Karawaci is a strategic business and residential area, with corporate giants like Lippo Karawaci (now Lippo Village) dominating the subdistrict. Alongside people looking to build their career here are students of the prestigious Pelita Harapan University (UPH) who move in annually every year. The rapid growth of Karawaci has also been attracting expatriates too recently.
Therefore, it’s no wonder that apartments flourish in Karawaci. Many tenants rent out their unit to out-of-towners with the help of hotel management companies such as RedDoorz, OYO, Travelio, and many more. That is because serviced apartments managed by developers are rare around these parts, except for premium-class apartments such as Skandinavia Tangerang.
Here are some of the serviced apartments around Karawaci that we recommend. Except for Fika Rooms, all these apartments are serviced by OYO, Travelio, etc. Please browse listings on their websites for further information.
