Guide Review - Motel One Review - Low Prices Meet High Design
Traveling on a shoestring has never been more in style than with the German hotel chain Motel One, which combines low prices with high design.
Rates at the two-starred motels start at just 49 Euros, but this price is surely not at the expense of the rooms.
The Rooms at Motel One
Although the rooms are small, they are very clean and functional and captivate through their modern and clear style. Combining cream, chocolate and turquoise colors together with materials like brick, wood, and leather creates both a hip and cozy atmosphere for the rooms and lobby.
All rooms at Motel One have a flat screen TV, mobile desks, queen size beds or twin beds, private bathrooms, air conditioning, and free wireless Internet. The only two things you have to sacrifice in a Motel One room: a mini bar and a phone. So grab a snack and a cocktail in the Motel One Lounge, and use the phone in the lobby.
Where to Find Motel One
Location, location, location: You find Motel One in Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Cologne, Leipzig, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Schweinfurt, Kassel, Düsseldorf, Hannover, and Wiesbaden.
More motels are scheduled to be opened in 2009 and 2010 in Germany, with plans to expand throughout Europe.
All Motel Ones have a great location: Most of them are in the city center or conveniently located close to airports (such as the Motel One at Frankfurt International Airport).
If it's not the Four Seasons you are after, Motel One is a great deal and one of the best options for budget traveling in Germany - top value, cool design, and fantastic locations all over the country.
