As a rule, I never test a hotel with a number in the name (think Super 8 or Motel 6) but maybe because they spelled out the name, it makes it okay.
All kidding aside, I was pleasantly surprised by Motel One. It is modern, chic and for a small hotel has nice amenities for a travel weary American. I would compare it to a W Hotel in the states.
The Good: Free wifi in the room. Plenty of English speaking tv channels - although you have to search for them as there is satellite and it took a bit of channel surfing to find them. Modern decor with nice room amenities like a rain shower head, decent size shower, decent bed, decent pillow, decent linens. The bar in the lobby is open 24 hours. The furniture in the lobby is ultra modern, but not exactly comfortable. It was a nice place to visit with friends, though. If you do find yourself in the lobby, go to the bathroom even if you don't have to, the sinks are really cool. There is a nice outdoor patio as well.
The Bad: The rooms are small - very small. No closet at all - but there are hanging bars. The bathroom is really small even though it has a big shower, the rest of it is cramped. There is not much room to put your suitcase and arrange your things. because of the small size, there is no dresser, or proper wardrobe. Instead there is an open hanging bar and some cubby shelves along one side of the bed. Some might find the complimentary toiletries sorely lacking. I bring my own, but I know that is something some people value - just 2 small bottles of an all in one (body/shampoo/conditioner combo)
Overall: It is a fine place stay. It is not fancy schmancy, but rather simply chic. You have what you need and a little more.
