This is a fantastic little hotel: unique and quirky. The rooms are smallish but perfectly formed and the layout has been well considered. Going up in the lift is an unexpected treat as you will go past hundreds of old pictures of film stars, football teams and volleyball teams from the 1920s onwards.
On arrival we were offered a glass of bubbly: very welcome after a hot train journey from Amsterdam. The staff are brilliantly friendly and helpful: we asked to move rooms because the trains passing on the track outside were a bit noisy in the night (this might not bother other folk at all and some might even like the noise, so don't let that put you off). It was sorted and our luggage moved by the time we came back in from our day out.
Breakfast is good - a wide range and the bacon is amazing.
The icing on an already great cake is the bar downstairs - great beer, a quiet and friendly clientele andapproachable, good humoured barstaff. Get their cheeseboard...worth travelling to Holland for in itself! It was our first time here and we can see ourselves coming back for many years to come. Go: you will love it.

We stayed here for business and was really surprised with the different nature of the hotel.
Every room is different and has some interesting touches!
My room didn't have a desk which I like as I use my laptop for work.
Breakfast was good.

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...
