“Nice change from most hotels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The owner and creative director commissioned different artists to design each room. Ours was a smallish room but designed to make good use of the space with a pale green and black colour palette which worked well. Surprisingly the room feels spacious, not dark and slightly romantic. There are a few quirky features which add to the room's charm and sense of humour. The wet room has a spacious and powerful shower.

The rest of the hotel is equally charming with friendly staff and a delightful cafe next door. Breakfast is served in another originally decorated room with a fashion inspired mural. Breakfast itself is standard continental fare and i would avoid the eggs, but the fresh raspberry and orange juice is very tasty.

Located within easy walking distance of the Arnhem Velperpoort station or 15-20 minutes from the main station, in the up and coming fashion/art quarter, this hotel is worth going slightly off the beaten path.

Friendly reception, nice room with everything you need. Parking just 5 meters outside the entrance. Restaurant with a very cosy atmosphere and very good service and a menu with creativity. Price is where it should be. Good breakfast.

This hotel has everything to leave good memories for ever. Interiors, location, breakfast, service are perfect. And there is also elevator there. It worth to stay there. The breakfast selection isn't huge, but quality is the best.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The Modez is in Arnhem’s fashion quarter, an area with a number of small trendy shops and workshops.

Each of the hotel’s rooms is decorated in a different theme. Mine was called Patchwork and was covered completely by QR codes. This means all the walls and curtains can actually be scanned. Unfortunately, I’m one of the few people on earth still without a smartphone, so I’m left guessing for what’s on display, but it was a nice room anyway.

Breakfast is not elaborate but allright. There is a small restaurant attached and some others are in walking distance. The reception desk is manned only until 8 PM, but service is friendly.

The location is along the railway tracks. It is possible to walk there from Arnhem Central Station (10-15 minutes). This means exiting at the station’s main entrance, walking to the street and going left, left again at the crossing and under the viaduct, then right along the tracks. With luggage, it may be easier to take the train to Arnhem Velperpoort, cross under the tracks and walk back two minutes.

Having stayed in most hotels in Arnhem, this is by far the most imaginative.

Thank you for your review! Your room is already a treat without a smartphone, so no real need to bring it. But if you'd have one next time, the room has a whole world of QR code secrets to unveil...

Modez is a small hotel full of elegance and class situated in de fashion and arts area of the town of Arnhem. Each room is decorated by a different artist in a different style, and is done so very well. Things are thought through. Fittings and colours match, atmosphere is pleasant. Each room has its own Nespresso coffee maker. Staff matches setting: elegant and helpful. The arts quarter is from around 1900, with many boutiques all around and relatively easily accessible by car (they have parking for guests). Much recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but the traveler may select one whose design he likes most!

I stayed at the Mode Design hotel Modez two weeks ago a month after it opened . It is the most wonderful and unique fashion experience . Each room is individually decorated and based on a Dutch Fashion Designer that had some connection with the very famous fashion school that is part of ArtEZ the very well respected Art School in Arnhem . The rooms are desinged by students at ArtEZ but based on famous Dutch Fashion designers , fashion movements or fashion skills such as a Knititng Room or a Perfume Room . Everything is fashion , even down to the plates and coffee cups that have fashion illustations on them . The lift is something else it just has a floor only , and as you go up you pass walls plastered with iconic fashion photographs . The rooms are simple but extremely practical , with great power showers and high quality coffee making facilities in each room . There is a great breakfast room which has amazing fashion murals on the walls all yellow and white , and a really good bar that does great food . There is also a very refreshing sitting area in the square out side . The main attraction of this hotel is that it is in the Mode Quater of Arnhem , where there are now over 50 Fashion Boutiques and related fashion businesses such as Model Agencies , Textile Printers and great bars and cafes . If you are interesting in individual fashion go there .

Room Tip: Ask about the themes of the rooms before you book
