Design Hotel Edinburgh
If you spending time in Edinburgh, there is every chance it will be either very cold or very wet! In that case, you can retire to the One Lounge reception area of one of our low budget Motel One design hotels and relax and unwind in our original turquoise Arne Jacobsen EGG chairs. Our virtual log fire will help to inspire warm thoughts... Or you just make sure you bring very warm and very waterproof clothing! Alternatively, a brisk walk through one of the capital city's many parks will soon warm you up. "Holyrood Park", a unique historic landscape in the heart of the city, the park's dramatic crags and hills give Edinburgh its distinctive skyline. It is a windswept and hilly public park that holds two of Edinburgh's most impressive natural monuments. "Arthur‘s Seat" is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park (250 m above sea level). In truth it is actually an extinct volcano and many claim that its name is derived from the myriad legends pertaining to King Arthur. The hill is relatively easy to climb and provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Scottish capital below. It has to be said that the skyline of this enchanting old city is well worth any effort. On a clear day, views to the East reach as far as "Bass Rock" and to the West as far as "Pentland Hills". The Royal Botanic Gardens is one of the UK's oldest botanic gardens and is a must for every visitor. Founded in 1670 as a so-called medicine garden, it's purpose was to supply fresh plants for medical prescriptions. It is a heavenly "oasis of peace" in this vibrant and lively city – and entry is free! And if you simply find you cannot tear yourself away from this fascinating city just yet, then just check in for another night – our discount Motel One hotels combine great design, style and ambience with excellent service and quality – and all at an amazingly low price. We look forward to welcoming you!
