Madrid, 1 (European Press)
Accommodation chain A&O opens the doors of its first residence in Edinburgh, UK. It’s the first in the Berlin chain in the UK and 40 in Europe.
With 131 rooms and 610 beds, A&O Edinburgh City marks the beginning of the brand’s expansion in the UK. The company is studying new business opportunities in the UK and Ireland.
Located on Blackfriars Street near the famous Royal Mile, A&o Edinburgh City has renovated each of its 131 rooms.
Budget travelers can choose from single, double, family or multi-family rooms that sleep up to six people.
It features free Wi-Fi and a 24-hour front desk. The new Edinburgh property also features a central courtyard and a bar for drinks and refreshments open all day.
Low cost carbon neutral.
Accommodation redesign is a key pillar of the sustainability strategy, and 85% of the 40 properties meet this premise.
A&O’s goal is to be a zero-emissions shelter chain by 2025. Currently, a&o consumes less than six kilograms of carbon dioxide per night of stay.
Additionally, from mid-June, a&o will use botanical tests with so-called neutralizing antibodies, thus also building a sustainable approach in line with the Berlin Chain’s commitment to sustainability.
