Feature

Homesharing giant Airbnb recently acquired Urbandoor, a startup specializing in furnished and serviced apartments for longer-than-normal work trips, relocation periods or for other long-term stays.

Founded in 2015, Urbandoor offers what it calls “corporate apartments” providing a bit more than the standard hotel. These types of accommodations are of particular interest to business travelers who may need to extend a work trip or to employees relocating to a new city who need to do some research before choosing a more permanent living space.

With this acquisition, Airbnb users will be able to book apartments equipped for longer stays and may include amenities like gyms, pools and concierge services. Airbnb will have access to owners and operators that manage whole blocks of such apartments, widening their offerings even more for an entirely different subset of travelers, which fits in well with Airbnb’s ongoing goal to build its business travel network.
