Although I adore hotel living, there are times when only an apartment will do. When you have a gang of you, when you are staying for a little longer or when you just need to spread out and have a bit more flexibility. Apartments now often offer so much more and the experience can be closer to staying in a hotel, just with the bonus of space and freedom; this is exactly the case at the gorgeous Mode Aparthotels which are located in both Edinburgh and Paris. We checked out the Edinburgh location…
Mode Edinburgh is located on Queen Street in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is in the very heart of the city close to the exclusive shopping paradise on George Street, a range of historic tours and Edinburgh Castle. As a guest you gain complimentary access to Queens Street Gardens West, a stunning private garden tucked away just minutes from the property. Despite your central location, the street is fairly quiet and you don’t feel like you’re in a noisy city at all. Also surprising for a city centre location, private parking is available. It’s limited so make sure you reserve it in advance but it’s a huge plus.
Style & Character
The apartments are housed in a beautiful historic Scottish building. Inside you’ll find an urban chic space; very contemporary and stylish with a warm, neutral colour palate. Exactly what I want for a home from home experience basically. The bespoke interior design features local artwork adding a charming Scottish feel. The apartments are very much designed to make staying here as comfortable and easy as possible, all the little finishing details add to an exceptional guest experience.
Service & Facilities
All Mode Aparthotels offer all the space, comfort, style and convenience of a home away from home with excellent facilities and excellent hospitality too. This is definitely what you’ll get at Mode Edinburgh. There’s a 24/7 reception desk staffed with very helpful and welcoming staff. There’s also a very knowledgeable 24/7 concierge service who will happily assist with all your local enquiries. If you are a business guest, the high-speed Internet will be essential and there’s also guest and meeting lounges available. Keep fit while you stay too at the 24/7 fitness centre.
There are 82 apartments at Mode and you can choose from the open plan Studio apartments or the One Bedroom apartments for that bit more space. All your luxury travel amenities are here; your bed is a Hypnos luxury comfort bed, your bathroom has a rain showerhead and the TV is a huge smart TV.
Food & Drink
Your apartment includes a kitchen or kitchenette that is fully equipped with everything that you need to self-cater. There’s also a self service coffee bar and wine cuvenee onsite, perfect for that morning coffee with a pastry to accompany and even better, a relaxing glass of wine and a light snack to end your day. You are literally a 5 minute walk from lots of restaurants, bars and pubs so you have plenty of options if you fancy dining out.
