About Staycity

Headquartered in Dublin, Staycity is a profitable, privately held company.

We operate 1200 serviced apartments in city centre locations in Birmingham, Dublin, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Paris.

Staycity is growing quickly with many new openings in 2016.

 

All apartments are high quality and are a compelling hotel alternative for business and leisure travelers.

In contrast to hotel rooms, apartments offer more space, independence and flexibility.

They are family-friendly and ideal for small leisure groups as they deliver an unbeatable cost per person.

In February and March 2016 we opened two brand new properties in Birmingham and in Heathrow. Soon you will be able to stay with us in new properties in Lyon (France), and York (UK).

 

For more information about when these properties open for business and how you can pre-book your stay with us please visit the New Openings page.
