Motel One Amsterdam:
The One Lounge design focus features Amsterdam’s most famous method of transportation - bicyles! The area features two impressive art installations that have been built out of old bicycle components.

The tulip, a flower synonymous with the city is beautifully incorporated into the One Lounge too. Tulip photo collections, a bespoke rug from renowned Spanish label GAN and chairs designed by Fritz Hansen in the shape and colours of the tulips adorn the area. A stunning glass lamp by Bocci, which also provides a fascinating hanging garden over the large dining table.

The beauty of Dutch architecture also shines through in the One Lounge with a custom-made partition that resembles the different window shapes of the city’s buildings, while the bar’s counter has a beautiful seven metre long collage of the canal houses.

The hotel is located opposite Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Conference Centre and is the perfect base from which to explore the city. Rooms start from £56 (69 Euros) per night.  

Motel One Edinburgh-Princes:
Motel One Edinburgh-Princes’ One Lounge has a distinctive royal theme with a contemporary twist. The second Motel One hotel in the city has an unmistakable sense of identity with the Scottish capital. The One Lounge features a long-table with throne-inspired chairs sitting under modern suspended pendant lights. The walls are adorned with regal images where the use of the turquoise colour perfectly ties Motel One’s modern personality with the area’s royal history.

Motel One’s very own tartan pattern is used on the iconic Arne Jacobsen egg chair. With a crackling fireplace image flickering on the flatscreen TV this creates an ever-cosy setting for guests to relax and unwind after a busy day exploring the city. 

The hotel is located just off Princes Street and within easy walking distance of all the major city attractions including the National Gallery of Scotland, Royal Museum and Edinburgh Castle. Rooms at the 140 bedroom hotel start from £69 a night.    

Motel One Munich Sendlinger-Tor:
Inspired by King Ludwig II, the 19th century Bavarian monarch, the royal theme at Munich Sendlinger-Tor creates a One Lounge filled with history, opulence and intrigue. The recently renovated interiors are filled with antiques, vintage pieces and chandeliers along with grand stone tables and comfortable leather chairs.

Regal bronze, silver and gold colours are complemented by the contemporary turquoise hues. Over-sized  images of Herrenchiemsee Castle and King Ludwig II further tie in the history of Bavaria to the design. The chic dotted chairs designed by Italian label Creazioni in the signature Motel One colour, turquoise are the perfect place for guests to sit back and enjoy a coffee or local beer.

Motel One Leipzig-Nikolaikirche:
Inspired by famous Leipzig church of St Nicholas and its peaceful revolt of 1989 the One Lounge features real black and white images from the demonstrations on the wall. The year, ‘89’ is lit by large bulbs behind the bar and facts from the event are highlighted in neon signs.

Chandeliers created with glass candlesticks and dozens of candles dotted in front of glass painted images of the church, create a peaceful and thought-inspiring setting. The comfortable chairs by designer Dame are the perfect place to sit back and relax. Whilst the colours are warm orange and brown tones in-keeping with the candlelight tones the classic Motel One turquoise is present throughout.
