One One Nine Apart-Hotel
‘One One Nine’ is an Apart-Hotel that’s central focus is creating a ‘Home-Away-From-Home’ guest experience, allowing guests to better connect with the city. Apartments offer the opportunity to live like locals, transforming the nature of staying away from home; thus, reinventing the city break experience. With the rise of rental sites such as Airbnb, more and more, people are steering away from the “One-size-fits-all” hotel set ups and are looking for a greater, more unique, experience when travelling.
Throughout the apart-hotel there are several subtle nods to tenement-esq features, playing homage to a stereotypical Glasgow ‘home’. This is intended to provide guests with a quirky insight into local culture and history. Along with that, Scottish designers, and locally manufactured design, is interweaved throughout the rooms. As well as a variety of apartments, ‘One One Nine’ also contains a bar and kitchen restaurant, open to both guests and locals for a drink and a bite to eat. Along with that, they too have a small café that sits on the corner of Sauchiehall street, a little cosy nook to sit and watch the world go by.
