Urban Rest Our Story About Us Serviced Apartments

Our Story

A different way to stay

Building the Future of Accommodation

Founded in 2017 in Sydney, Australia, our journey began out of frustration with the limited options available for business travel and relocation. Impersonal and small hotel rooms, soulless serviced apartments, and unreliable Airbnb hosts fell short of meeting our needs. In response, we created a new category by providing personalised, modern accommodation that inspire and promote your wellbeing. Stay for a night, a week, a month or a year, the choice is entirely yours.

Urban Rest offers a different way to stay. Our stays offer more space than conventional hotels. Stylish interiors that outshine traditional serviced apartments. Greater flexibility compared to long-term rentals. Plus, a consistent and exceptional customer experience that beats the random short-term rentals with 24/7 coverage to rival a hotel front desk.

What started with a handful of properties has now grown into over 400 units globally, with more in the pipeline as we continue to expand.
