Excellent position in Edinburgh near to rail station and airport bus services. The hotel offered an expensive feel for a budget price. I did slightly struggle to find my way in at first, with the entrance being up the side road. But once in, everyone was very friendly and professional.

21.10.2014

Great location, and a decent rate compared to some. Room was clean

21.10.2014

The primary reason I booked the hotel was due to its location and excellent price due. The value is SO much more than price and location, and I will definitely be back again!!! The hotel is an easy (100m) walk from the airport bus stop, Waverley train station and also the city bus station (400m). I hard heard that the entrance is not on Princess street itself so knew to walk towards the Guilford pub (an old football haunt from University days) and that I'd take an elevator from street level (above the new Apple store) to the receiption area on the first floor. I travel 60-80 days per year so am accustomed to a wide range of room standards in different countries. I would say that Motel One is a typical example of german simplicity and efficiency. The rooms are modern, simple, clean and comfortable. I booked three rooms for myself, a friend from New York, and parents and one room was slightly noisy through the night as it backed up to the guilford pub and Voodoo lounge. The other tiny note to mention is that the rooms are warm and without AC so in order to cool down you have to leave the windows open, which makes the noise a bit of a problem. I left the windows open during the day to cool the room down then closed them before going to bed to keep the noise down. The staff are very helpful and made sure I had everything that was needed for my guests. After working in england for 7days the break in edinburgh was unforgettable. Cant wait to stay again next year!! See you next time Motel One.

The hotel had a friendly service and was very clean and organized. The rooms are simple, but are well set up. I would definitely stay here again.

20.10.2014

Very clean room, comfortable bed but room warm and no air con available.

21.10.2014

Fantastic hotel, modern clean practical n reasonably priced. Central for those travelling by rail. Service at reception was friendlly helpful and efficient. Would def use again and recommend. Only drawback was a fire alarm goin off on sunday morning which was NOT a false alarm someone had broken fire safety glass was very uneelcome when we had only had 4 hours sleep at 9.15 on a rainy sunday morning in PJ's not good!

21.10.2014

It is a very good hotel in a prime location. It is a pity the air conditioning does not work and that we have to use fans to keep the room cool.

21.10.2014

Does exactly what it says on the tin!! Comfortable, spotless functional room.. Noise others warned about did not materialise.. Location absolutely perfect, so easy for everything.. We even booked a show and WALKED to the theatre

21.10.2014

We spent three nights in Motel One (October 2014). You will not find another hotel in this price range in a better location. The hotel is very well kept. We were very impressed with the décor and cleanliness. Our only fault in the bedroom was that we had to use a fan to stay in the room any longer than 10 minutes - the heat was unbearable and we even slept with the fan on which was a little noisy. Overall a great hotel and we definitely recommend it to all travelers to Edinburgh.

21.10.2014

Had very enjoyable night at the hotel. We had no complaints at all.

21.10.2014

The staff were very helpful from arrival until we left. Will definitely use hotel again on. Trip to edinburgh.

20.10.2014

Lovely ambience created in bar/breakfast area. Nice choices of furnishings in the bedroom, simple but stylish.

20.10.2014

First time I have stayed and really impressed. Will definitely use again.

19.10.2014

hotel was clean, well decorated and very friendly staff. check-in/out was quick and easy

19.10.2014

The perfect location for getting out and about in the city - and beyond - being so close to the main rail station and many bus routes, and easy walking distance to the major places to visit and also the shops.

19.10.2014

It is unfortunate that there is no entry from Princes Street. The hotel is close to transport links and shopping. The rooms are modern, bright and comfortable. There was no waste paper bin in the room

19.10.2014

Lovely place. Modern and beautiful. The staff was lovely! Only 1 thing was under excellent. The bathroom-light. It was impossible to put makeup on. I had to run out to the elevator to check every morning :)

19.10.2014

We had really nice stay however the coffee in the morning was not not up to standard...it was very weak...nearly watery. Also a few mre things like a shower cup...shsmpoo....conditioner...cotton wool..pads would be very wrlcome...

19.10.2014

We had a great stay, and if we ever return to Edinburgh we'll return to motel one. The only negative thing that i can think of is the lighting in the bathroom and the long distance to the mirror. The combination between theese two made it hard to put make up on and know if it ended up where it´s was supposed to be. A makeupmirror on a flexible arm mounted to the wall would be nice :) Otherwise everything was great, the staff, the room, the cleaning and the bed!! All great.

20.10.2014

Hotel was situated in a great location. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Only criticism was that the air conditioning wasn't working & the room was very hot.

20.10.2014

Staff very friendly, lovely and clean with a comfortable bed and great view of the city, not impressed with the breakfast when we booked at the reception we were not told the breakfast was only continental otherwise we would not of paid the £15. But we would definitely stay here again.

20.10.2014

an excellent hotel. the decor,cleanliness and location could not be bettered. the receptionist was very friendly on both arrival and departure as were all the staff the only very minor quibble was the lack of bar staff later in the evening and after waiting for a time we gave up and went to the pub next to the motel. i would certainly stay here again though.

19.10.2014

The hotel was in a great location, was very clean and a good price. The main problem was the heat in the bedroom. It was horrendously hot which made a very poor nights sleep. Even the UHT millk on the coffee tray had curdled! We had to keep a fan on all night and even that didn't help. We were advised air con would be installed by Christmas. If that is done we would definately stay again, but not until (sorry). Would recommend but only once air con sorted.

21.10.2014

Location fantastic. Directly opposite Waverley station. Rooms very clean, modern and comfortable. Only problem was no air conditioning, therefore rooms were exceptionally warm.

22.10.2014

Excellant value for money. Clean modern interior and situated in a great location.

26.10.2014

I stay there a lot and it is a consistently good service so well done to the team!!

26.10.2014

Front desk staff were extremely helpful. They took my baggage off me, and I was given the millionaire's treatment. Everyone from front desk, to the cleaners said hello, like I was a regular visitor at the hotel. Breakfast was wonderful. Definitely recommend to everyone.

25.10.2014

Great Location 2 mins walk from the station and great views of the castle . Super value and quality.

28.10.2014

Good location, with no noise from the street. Beautiful room with superb bathroom.

26.10.2014

We arrived at the Hotel and the Staff on the Reception were very friendly and we were given a hotel on the 2nd Floor which overlooked Princes Street. The room was perfect for our needs and spotlessly clean. We did not book breakfast so cannot comment on that but we did have a drink in the Bar and although we thought it was a bit expensive the surroundings were lovely and again spotlessly clean and Barman was very helpful. Very central location which is what attracted us to this Hotel and we would definitely stay here again. The 12 noon check out and the luggage storage until the train time later that day was also a plus for us. Thank you - we will return.

26.10.2014

Great budget hotel, friendly staff and clean, with modern rooms. Only gripe was the room was too warm, there was a fan provided but heating needs to be updated to air conditioning. Excellent location in central Edinburgh :)

27.10.2014

Lovely decor and comfortable bed. The breakfast variety for a continental option was varied and value for Money. The toasties available at the bar are just right for a pick me up snack and the location Could Not be Better

27.10.2014

Very pleasant hotel, excellent location in central Edinburgh. Clean and fresh with friendly and efficient staff. An overall very good experience.

27.10.2014

This was a lovely and friendly hotel but with us owning our own public house we were there for a chilling 3 days but because the hotel was so hot we could relax in the room in the afternoon sfter a few hours of looking around, sleep in the night was not possible as it was so humid we were in room 212. Would come again once air conditioning was installed but not until.

24.10.2014

Clean, spacious and perfect location

24.10.2014

Beautiful hotel in a great location brilliant mix of modern and functional

23.10.2014

I found the location absolutely perfect. The room is also quite good, for a short stay. The only silly thing that I missed was just a small soap to wash my hands in the bathroom. The breakfast was not only Amazing, but beautiful.

22.10.2014

Very clean comfortable room. The bed was big and very comfortable. The location was excellent for us. We came on the train and just had to walk across the road to the hotel. We arrived early expecting to have to ask the hotel to store our bags until our room was ready and were very surprised to find our room was ready and we could check in early. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. We would definitely use you again and would recommend. We had a great stay

22.10.2014

This hotel was excellent value for money. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was fantastic.

22.10.2014

The usual great standard that I have become used to with MotelOne. Unfortunately I had been given a room for wheelchair use, this meant that I nearly broke my back when I went to use the sink as it was very low but the night receptionist, James, was extremely helpful and move me to a different room. Thank you. As I have said before in my previous reviews, either of the two MotelOne is our hotel of choice now when travelling to Edinburgh.

23.10.2014

Enjoyed a superb stay at the Motel One hotel in Edinburgh. Reasonably priced with a great location opposite Waverley station and friendly professional staff. The hotel décor was really different with a boutique theme and the hotel provided a very nice continental style breakfast for reasonable price. The hotel is near the major attractions in the centre with good transport links and restaurants nearby. If I travel to Edinburgh city centre again would definitely use the same hotel.

22.10.2014

Very friendly clean and professional! Definitely would stay again. Well located for the old city. Only thing holding back all tens was no a/c. And room was really warm

23.10.2014

Very clean and lovely rooms. I enjoyed it very much, just a pity i was going down with man flu on the night !

23.10.2014

Had a great stay, service was amazing and the view was great! For the price I paid it was exceptional, so handy and good value.....would definitely stay here again......excellent!

22.10.2014

Schönes Hotel, vor allem Lage und Preis/Leistung stimmen. Negativ: Die Bedienung der Bar ist sehr unaufmerksam, so dass man doch des öfteren eigeninitiativ werden muss, um ein Getränke zu bekommen.

19.10.2014

3 - 4 Tage Städtetrip - könnte mir kein besseres Hotel denken um Edinburgh zu erkunden. Es liegt hervorragend zentral an der Princes Street und bietet alles, was man für einen Kurzaufenthalt braucht. Eine einzige Frage ist mir offen geblieben: Warum ist das Zimmer enorm überheizt und die Temperatur kann nicht (ausser über einen Ventilator) reguliert werden?

26.10.2014

der aufenthalt war toll und die lage perfekt. preis-leistung stimmt total. leider mussten wir für die letzte nacht unser zimmer wechslens da ein stromusfall in usern zimmer war. wir wurden freundlich gebeten das zimmer neben an zu beziehen. ich hätte jedoch für diese umszände mit einem entgegenkommen gerechnet. (z.b ein gratis getränk an der bar oder eine kleine reduktion des gesamtpreises) denn es war sehr umständlich alles zusammen packen und ins nächste zimmer gehen und nochmals ausbreiten. wir verloren wertvolle zeit für die wunderschöne stadt.

26.10.2014

Schönes, neues Hotel. Lage super zentral und trotz der großen Straße erstaunlich leise in den Zimmern. Aufhängung für Handtücher im Bad fehlt. Von den Haken fallen die Handtücher runter, da sie keine Schlaufen haben. Super war die deutsche Steckdose!

23.10.2014

Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist absolut top! Die Lage an der Princes Street ist genial und das Hotel sehr schön und zweckmässig eingerichtet. Einzig eine Kommode oder ein kleiner Schrank fehlt im Zimmer. Es ist etwas nervig wenn man nichts verräumen kann und immer aus dem Koffer leben muss.

25.10.2014

Wenn man es einmal gefunden hat, ist es ein sehr preisgünstiges Hotel in bester Lage
