Co-working Spaces vs Serviced Offices

There are really only two main differences between a serviced office and a coworking space. A serviced office tends to provide more privacy and a greater sense of personal branding. It also attracts larger companies than a coworking space does.

Should you go for a co-working space or a serviced office?

A coworking space offers tenants greater opportunities for collaboration, networking, and social interactions. This is why a coworking space makes an excellent option for freelancers, startups, and small businesses.

Coworking spaces are popular due to the numerous benefits that they offer, such as cost-effectiveness and increased opportunities for collaboration and networking.


The coworking space also encourages social interactions by integrating spatial facilities in the interiors, such as informal meeting areas, lounges, terraces and cafes, which isn’t available in a conventional workplace.

Why should you rent a serviced office?

Serviced offices offers flexibility by operating on a monthly rental basis. Long-term lease agreements can be arranged but are not necessarily required. This gives larger businesses or enterprises the freedom to move out and easily upgrade their office space arrangements.


Serviced offices are managed by operators whilst providing tenants with in-house services and shared facilities like conference rooms, meeting rooms, and function rooms. All the office space needs required to run a business are handled by the operator.
