The Princess Street hotel in Edinburgh was very convenient. Room was simply laid out, but clean and tidy, had a good sized bathroom, and a shower area that was more than big enough to move around in. The bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly. Continental-style breakfast was fine for me, though not a big range of options. Good value for money. Very likely to stay there again next time I travel to Edinburgh.

11.01.2017

Stilysh ambient. Ecellent location, near all the attractions, shops and public transports. Room was clean and comfortable. I've really appreciate the choose of local and quality products for the breakfast. Quick, professional and kind service.

11.01.2017

Great location, great quality and great price. The staff were welcoming, polite and nothing was too much trouble

10.01.2017

Unfortunately despite the room being nice,large -and modern . The cleanliness wasn't up to scratch . There was mould on the filter for the ventilation in the bathroom, there was dust and dirt on the tiles and a large cobweb hanging from the ceiling.

10.01.2017

Everything was fine , if I had to say something negative...miss having a wardrobe in the room. Location was perfect, bus stop, train station and bus to the airport very close. The staff was very friendly.

10.01.2017

I have stayed may times at Motel1 Princes Street and am always impressed. Staff are excellent and should be commended Things to improve would be ta healthier opton on the toasted sandwiches or even microwavable pot soups from someone like Pret a Manger Biggest risk is always the noise of other guests (last week, a group of intoxicated guests at 4 am) For first floor, suggest a hinge on the main fire door in the corridor that would allow it to close quietly

10.01.2017

2nd visit and we had an interior room. this meant that we could open the window to let air in without the noise. the only drawback was the security light outside in which the curtains couldn't block out. the room was laid out differently, the bathroom door was parallel to the bed that made it difficult to easily open the door. bed was comfortable but pillows very strange, ended up using them on the short end otherwise my head didn't get any support! i did need to ask for additional pillows (again). shower was ok, needed to let it run to get the water hot enough though. please use BIGGER towels! one bath towel is inadequate as i use this one for my hair ! it was no problem getting more but i need them to be at least a bath sheet in size. staff very presentable and courteous. I'm aware that you are a 'budget' hotel but being disturbed more than once in the early hours of the morning by other guests having a screaming match in the corridor is not nice. it was bad enough seeing these same guests wearing pyjamas whilst drinking in the communal lounge. every hotel must have standards in which the guests must adhere to otherwise it may get a reputation! we didn't have breakfast so i can't comment. the location and costs is one of the reasons i use this hotel along with the ability to check in early! overall i would use this hotel again and would recommend it to my friends!

10.01.2017

The location of the hotel is very convenient, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, unfortunately, as we were about to leave a member of staff opened the door without knocking; which was weird and very unprofessional.

09.01.2017

Excellent - good value for money.

09.01.2017

Excellent location, surprisingly quiet for being in city centre, comfy beds, clean, friendly staff... it was great. We arrived at 10am to leave bags and the receptionist checked our rooms and let us check in as they were ready. Amazing as we had two small children with us and made our stay so much better.

09.01.2017

I had a lovely, relaxing stay at Motel One. The hotel was clean, interesting and modern. The staff were also very friendly and looked happy at their work :). I will be returning!

09.01.2017

A dog friendly hotel in a convenient location for a reasonable price, what more could you ask for? Lovely clean room, comfortable bed, friendly staff, perfect! Thank you!

09.01.2017

Our experience of Motel One both in the U.K. And Germany has been very positive. Rooms are very clean, very comfortable with very good beds. Hotels are, in our experience, in very central locations but are secure and well sound- proofed. Exceptionally good value with helpful, professional staff.

08.01.2017

Great service with. Lean and smart rooms

08.01.2017

Staff excellent, hotel room was basic,but had all you needed,bed was clean and comfortable, toilets and shower very modern,really enjoyed our stay.

08.01.2017

Hotel in great location in the city centre. During our stay there was the christmas market just across the street which was a lovely experience. Very friendly staff. Very clean and well equipped rooms. Very high value for an affordable price. Thank you for the nice holiday.

08.01.2017

Great location in downtown Edinburgh. You can walk everywhere. Nice rooms (need to take the better ones with a view). Nice breakfast and bar area. Expected motel one standard!

07.01.2017

Good value, clean and tidy. City centre location but very quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall good experience.

07.01.2017

Only negative was pillow too soft and using wash liquid from previous occupant...otherwise excellent

07.01.2017

The bed was large and very comfortable, a quiet room at the end of the hall. I like the fact that you don't have to walk passed the reception every time you want to leave the motel. I like the décor and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

06.01.2017

A great location with a very comfortable room and excellent friendly staff. Looking forward to staying again.

06.01.2017

enjoyable stay

06.01.2017

HOTEL IS IN A GREAT LOCATION FOR EVERYTHING. THE RECEPTION STAFF VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING. ROOMS WARM AND VERY WELL PRESENTED, COMFORTABLE BEDS AND EXCELLENT SHOWER.

06.01.2017

Location cleanliness friendliness price comfort service all 100% 2nd stay here will definitely be back. One very small down point, the bathroom was really cold but not an issue really

05.01.2017

The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. We had our 2 year-old son with us, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The hotel was in a perfect location for the New Year's celebration and many other city sites. We definitely would recommend this hotel to any other travelers coming to the Edinburgh.

04.01.2017

Very nice hotel staff very nice will stay in a one hotel again excellent

04.01.2017

Staff is wonderful, room was nice for the price and hotel is very cute. Thank you aswell because I am celiac and your staff gave me proper delicious bread.

04.01.2017

I was at Motel One Princes Street for the second time. Everything is very well organized, everyone is very nice and willing to help with any kind of question. The rooms are clean and tidy and the service is really good.

03.01.2017

I stayed here for 3 nights over the new year period and found the hotel very clean,the staff very friendly and very competent. Would highly recommend this hotel.

03.01.2017

Did not exactly get what i wanted, despite paying 2 rooms for in advance. On my last visit in november i asked for special room location with undisturbed city view and i got the same rooms with obstructed cityview by the Balmoral Hotel. This is really not what i wanted, because the requested rooms at the end of each corridor provide this view. This fact influences the wuestionnaire, because nobody takes care about clients wishes like that, despite asking for this 2x weeks in advance during the nov stay.

03.01.2017

Very clean, well presented rooms. Functional and simple - ideal for an Edinburgh stop-over. Great central location and rooms were very quiet (stayed in a room not facing on to Princes Street).

03.01.2017

I was pleasantly surprised by our stay at Motel One. Even though we paid the Hogmanay premium, for the price I was expecting the level of a Travelodge but it was so much better! It had a fantastic location and large room with a modern feel. Bathroom was small but perfectly formed. Would definitely recommend if looking for a central but basic stay on a budget - you won't be disappointed.

02.01.2017

Very good and clean hotel with Spacious rooms, excellent location. Breakfast should be free for all, unfortunately you'll even charged me for my 8 year old child. so i would not recommend your hotel for breakfast.

01.01.2017

Another great stay at Motel one Princess St Edinburgh. Fantastic location very friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. What more could you require. Had a room with a view and could not hear the traffic on the very busy street below. Will return.

01.01.2017

We could not have booked a hotel more central to the Christmas market! The hotel was clean; the staff friendly; the decor luxurious and the atmosphere warm.

01.01.2017

Again lovely welcome room ready at 11am all great BUT again we booked a room with a view Mmmmmmmm room looked into a bedroom at the Balmoral Hotel not much of a view when the colourful Germane Market was on view next time NOT 238. Breakfast service was good. Wishing all the Staff best wishes for 2017

01.01.2017

Room heating controller no functional. Room very warm and uncomfortable to sleep. Toilet bowl not cleaned correctly on arrival

01.01.2017

Great value hotel in perfect location especially when coming by train.

01.01.2017

Can't fault the staff, location, rooms or bar. DO NOT get the breakfast it's priced at double its value as nothing is cooked!!

01.01.2017

Good location good price friendly staff , on the minus side rooms hot and stuffy not enough information in room ,very dark lighting

31.12.2016

Friendly helpful staff, excellent location for central Edinburgh attractions. Rooms clean and well maintained. Slight noise from princess street at night even with windows closed but it is a city centre hotel so noise can be expected

31.12.2016

Had a lovely time at this hotel. Room was very modern, light and airy. The bed was very comfortable and spacious. I will definitely be back and would recommend this hotel. It was very handy for the Edinburgh playhouse and Christmas markets and very reasonably priced.

31.12.2016

Great location and even better price. The room was basic but more than adequate for an overnight stay. The bed was comfortable with one of the best hotel pillows I've come across. The bathroom was good and the hand soap and shower gel was an unexpected surprise. The shower was also good with decent pressure.

31.12.2016

Room 208: Lightswitch in bed broken, one of the hooks on bathroom door broken. Shows little care in housekeeping.

31.12.2016

this is my second time staying here and will definitely be back . Perfect location with very friendly and welcoming staff .

11.01.2017

Top freundliches und sehr hilfsbereites Personal. Ganz tolle Lage. Jederzeit wieder.

08.01.2017

exzellente Aussicht, top Lage und wunderschöne Stadt.

05.01.2017

Dies war bereits mein 3. Aufenthalt im Motel One Princes Street und ich würde für meinen nächsten Besuch in Edinburgh wieder dieses großartige Hotel buchen! Die Lage ist einfach perfekt: der Airlink Bus zum Flughafen fährt gleich um die Ecke weg, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind zu Fuß super zu erreichen, die Zimmer zur Princes Street hin bieten einen grandiosen Blick auf die Stadt und die Burg und durch die Lage gegenüber des Waverley Bahnhofes bzw. von Waterloo Place (hier fahren die meisten Bustouren in die Highlands ab..) sind Ausflüge per Bahn oder Bus in die wunderschönen Highlands stressfrei möglich. Die Zimmer und das Hotel sind sehr sauber, das angebotene Frühstück am Morgen bietet neben der Auswahl an Lebensmittel aus der nahen Umgebung einfach alles was man für einen guten Start in den Tag benötigt, das Hotelpersonal hilft einem bei Fragen sofort weiter (wir haben z.B. um eine weitere Bettdecke gebeten und bekamen diese innerhalb von 5min vorbeigebracht) und in der Hotelbar kann man sich nach einem anstrengenden Sightseeing-Tag bei einem leckeren Cocktail mit Blick auf die erleuchtete Burg herrlich entspannen. Hatten dieses Jahr Zimmer im 3. Stock mit Blick auf die Burg - diese waren trotz Preisaufschlag von der Größe (sowohl das Zimmer selbst als auch das Badezimmer) kleiner als die Zimmer im 2. oder 4. Stock (habe bereits in den anderen Stockwerken Zimmer bewohnt) - ich würde beim nächsten Mal daher wieder um Zimmer im 2. oder 4. Stock anfragen - schön waren sie aber trotzdem!! Als einzigen negativen Punkt muss ich dieses Mal anführen, dass wir bei der Anreise aufgrund von Schlechtwetter Flugverspätungen im Ausmaß von insgesamt 12 (!) Stunden hatten und leider statt um 16Uhr am 29.12., erst um 04:00 Früh am nächsten Tag beim Hotel angekommen sind - da wir in Amsterdam die Info bekamen, dass unser Flieger nicht vor 01:00 Uhr morgens starten kann, habe ich gegen 20Uhr extra im Hotel angerufen um Bescheid zu geben, dass wir am Weg sind, jedoch erst weit nach Mitternacht ankommen werden und unsere Zimmerreservierung bitte nicht gelöscht werden soll ( hatte die beiden Zimmer bereits Anfang Jänner 2016 für Silvester 2016/2017 reserviert!) - mir wurde gesagt, dass dies bei meiner Reservierung vermerkt worden wäre und meine Reservierung aufgrund der hinterlegten Kreditkarte gesichert sei - leider waren um 04:00 Uhr als wir ankamen dann doch beide Zimmer bereits als "No Show" gelöscht worden - zum Glück konnte sie der nette Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption wieder "aktivieren" - wären sie jedoch ganz weg gewesen und wir wären plötzlich am 30.12. ohne Zimmer dagestanden, dann wäre dies trotz Buchung fast 1 Jahr im Voraus furchtbar gewesen!!! Zum Glück haben wir unsere Zimmer wiederbekommen und wir hatten wunderbare Tage und ein tolles Hogmanay in Edinburgh - sollte so ein Fall jedoch nochmals eintreten, dass man unverschuldet aufgrund von Schlechtwetter erst verspätet anreisen kann, dann wäre es toll wenn das Hotel eine Möglichkeit anbieten könnte, dass die Zimmer (oder die entsprechende Nacht die betroffen ist) bereits vorab per Kreditkarte bezahlt werden können, wenn man extra anruft und Bescheid gibt, dass man auf jeden Fall kommt und sein Zimmer beziehen wird!

Meine Familie hatte die Zimmer 424 und 416. Zimmer 424 ist die Badezimmertür stark beschädigt durch Wassersschaden (Dusche), das Wassbecken (Handwaschbecken) ist lose und eine Zumutung. Klimanlage/Umluftanlage ? sollte funktionfähig sein!!!, als Klima oder Umluftanlage. Rauchmelder an der Decke ektrem starker Lichtimuls. Nachts ist dies störend. Meine Kinder hatten Zimmer 416, "Raumklima" war nur durch Fensterlüftung steuerbar. Nachts extrem warm und nicht regelbar. Mitarbeiter am Frühstücksbuffet eindeutig zu wenig (meist nur 2 ?? inkl. Empfang). Silvester kann doch für Ihr Haus nicht so aus heiterem Himmel pötzlich da sein... Alle Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit dafür gebe ich 10 Punkte!.Beruflich bin ich sehr häufig in Ihren Häusern insgesamt war ich in Edinburgh schon etwa entäuscht.Es scheint baulich eine Renovierung erforderlich zu sein (z.B.welliger Boden im Saal). Sie können mich auch geren anrufen oder anschreiben Beste Grüße Ludwig Becker 0172-4085323

Fantastische Lage, erstaunlich authentisches Ambiente und freundlicher Service. Das motel one Konzept geht auch in Bestlage der schottischen Metropole auf. Sehr zu empfehlen: die Zimmer im 1.Stock mit Block auf die Princess Street. Die perfekte Residenz für ein Happy Hogmanay!
