UK: An Adagio aparthotel, along with a Novotel, will officially open in Leicester city centre on January 16.

The £40-million dual branded scheme by developer Charles Street Buildings Group, will feature the two hotels and the NineB independent restaurant.

The Adagio, designed for short and long-term stays has 98 apartments, including 73 two-person studios and 25 two-room apartments for up to four people. All rooms have fully-fitted kitchens including microwaves, dishwashers, hobs, fridge freezers and coffee machines and are designed for travellers to live and work comfortably.

Each apartment is kitted out with modular furniture and fold-out and slide-out components, including beds that fold up into the wall, sliding kitchen counters and movable bedside tables. All Adagio apartments have high-spec technology, including USB alarm clocks, wireless chargers and 43-inch televisions and are fully-fitted, fully-serviced apartments perfect for those who need a longer stay in the city.

Prints and photography on the walls of the Adagio are all Leicester scenes as well as historic Charles Street Buildings Group buildings.

James Conaghan, general manager of the Novotel and Adagio Leicester hotels, said: “Adagio offers the service of a hotel with the freedom of an apartment. It’s a real home away from home. We’re proud to be offering real at-home comfort for visitors to Leicester, whether they’re on a long-stay business trip, have recently relocated or are visiting family at university. The Adagio will have such a homely and welcoming feel that we are even putting on weekly get-togethers for our guests – from cinema and popcorn evenings to book groups,” said James.

The reception area will have self-service iPad check-ins and a breakfast area called The Circle - an area for guests to meet and eat and is the only Adagio in the UK which serves a hot breakfast. Guests can also go downstairs and dine in the NineB restaurant, which will be open for all-day dining and modern British cuisine.

James added: “For those guests who are staying a little longer and require a few more home comforts our library book shelf area in the lobby will carry items to borrow – including soft toys, pouffes, books and magazines and a selection of other goodies. We have tried to think of everything to make our guests feel at home during their stay with us.”
