TRIP TO SCOTLAND PART ONE - CITIZENM HOTEL

On Monday my boyfriend Mat and I headed off on our last minute trip to Scotland. We stayed in Glasgow but traveled through to Edinburgh for a day whilst we were there. We had such a fantastic (but thoroughly exhausting) time and stayed at the most wonderful hotel, CitizenM, which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who was planning a trip to Glasgow!

I really went to town with the photographs, so here is the first batch of the hotel!


Arrving at CitizenM! Looking good so far.


One of the many fabulously quirky little details throughout the hotel. This was the welcome mat inside the entrance.


Half way up the spiral staircase... Clearly this guy had a few too many!


The spiral staircase leads up to the modern lobby area where you can check in, grab a bite to eat or drink, catch up on your e-mails or just sit and read a good book, of which a huge variety is available!


Quirky chair central! We never did get the opportunity to get a go on that crazy one in the corner though.




Further down the lobby there was a room full of iMacs for people to catch up on their business and have a browse online.


A close up of the interesting metal window decoration in the lobby.


Just one of the many floor to ceiling bookshelves throughout the lobby area.


Definitely one of our favourite spots, we spent plenty of time relaxing on the Eames Lounge chairs.


Yet another interesting chair!


Definitely the most relaxed, homey hotel I've stayed in, from the bubbly staff to the ever welcoming signs it would be hard not to feel at home here.


The rooms were probably the most exciting part of the hotel. Almost everything is controlled by remote, including the blinds, tv, alarm clock and the lighting which you can fully customise the colour of to suit your mood.

The bathroom was a frosted glass pod set in the corner of the room with the shower wet room and toilet inside. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and gigantic too, safe to say that my single bed is feeling pretty small now that I'm back home!
