Germany: The winners of the 2018 So! Apart awards were announced at a ceremony held as part of this year’s So! Apart conference in Leipzig.

The awards, now in their sixth year, are judged by a guru of professionals from travel management, investment, planning, consulting and industry media, and feature four categories and two public vote awards.

The Boutique Serviced Apartments Yays Sagrera in Barcelona convinced in the category "small and precious". Jury member Uwe Niemann, head of market hotel financing at Deutsche Hypothekenbank in Hanover, presented the award to Peter Heule from Yays.

In the category "grand and great - aparthotel" the jury voted for Adina Apartment Hotel Leipzig. In the category "great and grand - classical apartment house" the FELIX Suites im Lebendigen Haus am Zwinger in Dresden was the winner. The award for "new and different" went to the my4walls Serviced Apartments in Hamburg,

For the third time, the jury also presented a special award for outstanding performance in the segment. This year it went to Yays. "The Dutch company's team is consciously taking a different path: out of the city centres into less well-known neighbourhoods and with a social concept that consciously establishes contact between guests and the surrounding area. The goal is not repression, but co-operation at eye level," said Anett Gregorius, the awards organiser, and awarded the special prize to Managing Director Peter Heule in the evening.

The votes for "the popular little one" with a maximum of 50 apartments and "the popular big one" with more than 50 apartments went to ADAPT APARTMENTS BERLIN and APART ARTHOTEL Munich Airport Boardinghaus.

"The SO!APART Awards do not only reflect the current concept trends in this dynamic market - they are also a special recognition for the courage and commitment of developers and operators to take special paths in this particular segment. Above all, however, they also acknowledge the outstanding work of the operators and each individual employee," emphasises Anett Gregorius.
