Motel One, the budget German hotel group, opens its first London property this month, located on Minories Street between Aldgate and Tower Hill tube stations.
Handy for London tourist hotspots such as the Tower of London and the City, the 291-room hotel is the group’s first in England with two Motel One properties already trading in Edinburgh.
Rooms start from £98 per night, and will offer free wifi, Egyptian cotton bed linen and monsoon rain showers.
A lounge and bar area decorated in a traditional English theme, with Chesterfield sofas, tweed and velvet covered armchairs and a fireplace offers iPads for guest use.
Motel One first launched in 2000 with budget properties near German motorways, and has grown to focus on prime city centre locations including Brussels, Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich.
The group currently has 54 sites in operation, with new properties planned for Manchester, Vienna and Amsterdam.
