All was generally fine, but air conditioning was very poor - couldn't put temperature below 25 degrees! Windows did open for ventilation.. but overlooked noisy streets so not ideal.

25.08.2016

The hotel is good, the localization of the hotel is good, but the room is very basic, without amenities, safe box, refrigerator, clothes iron, etc. Additionally the floor carpet smells like powder. We suggest to increase the floor carpet cleaning and to offer a room without carpet to allergic people

25.08.2016

Fantastic location, reception staff always friendly & helpful. Room clean, good bathroom. Only gripe would be that some of the carpets need replacing (there was a large stain on the carpet in the corridor outside my room) and the lifts are quite slow.....other than that, very good!

24.08.2016

Motel One gets all the basics right - no frills (good) but neither is it under-specified. Very comfortable bed, quiet room, great shower, decent toiletries, good breakfast... all good. For once, value not so great as it was a late booking at Edinburgh Festival time but usually prices are good.

24.08.2016

Always stay at Motel One when visiting Edinburgh which we do periodically as we live in Fife. The cost of this particular visit was DOUBLE its normal as the Festival was on which I get, but was still a bit annoyed that regular, loyal customers, (my family use this venue also), pay this hefty sum. Over £300 for 2 nights not including breakfast is steep. Will reconsider next August. Room clean and adequate, staff friendly.

24.08.2016

The staff was friendly and the room was very neat. The location is perfect since it is just right across Waverly train station. it was very convenient and easy and right at the heart of the city! We're definitely coming back!

24.08.2016

Excellent hotel, prime location. Only downfall was the noise at times (mainly the singing pipe band on the Sunday!!!) but I know that is expected due to the location.

24.08.2016

The venue is right in the heart of Edinburgh!

24.08.2016

Great location in the heard of Edinburgh, simple, clean and modern rooms that are perfect for a short stay. Food OK at the bar and overall staff were very friendly and helpful. All this for an affordable price - I'll definitely stay again on my return to Edinburgh.

23.08.2016

This is the 3rd time I have stayed at Motel One. A basic but very clean and comfortable stay. Perfect for a short city break in Edinburgh as almost opposite Waverley station. Staff polite, friendly and helpful.

23.08.2016

Again an excellent stay at Motel One !

23.08.2016

I thought it was great. A little frustrating that the price doubles at fringe but understand that it's because it's so busy.

22.08.2016

My room was always in tip-top shape, service was absolutely wonderful, and all workers were incredibly friendly and helpful. Being an international traveler, they made me feel at home and helped me to stay as stress-free as possible. Thank you, Motel One!

22.08.2016

Very efficient hotel (if a little soulless). Staff were lovely. Breakfast excellent. Location wonderful. Good facilities in the room. I was a little surprised that there was no drawer space and little hanging space.

22.08.2016

I felt well looked after by the staff and they were friendly and efficient. Other than that, it was comparable to other cheaper hotels, providing adequate accommodation.

22.08.2016

Great location. Staff are very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Food is fresh. It would be good to have a wider range of hot food instead of only eggs. Accommodation comfortable. Would welcome more hanger space and biscuits in the room! Staying during The Fringe week is exceptionally expensive.

22.08.2016

Excellent hotel in a great location. The staff were very good and very helpful. The rooms were clean and nice and had all the facilities that were needed. If I had to pick on anything it would be the size of my breakfast plate. They are like side plates and awkward to use once you have one slice of toast on them. This was only a minor issue and would not out me off using you again. I have recommended you to all my friends and have told my company to use you for all our staff visits to Edinburgh.

22.08.2016

Good welcoming nice large room. Breakfast was good value but I like the option of cooked breakfast as well.

22.08.2016

Good Budget hotel made excellent by the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff

22.08.2016

Can't fault it we have stayed twice now at Princes Street Edinburgh and the standards are excellent. Room has an amazing view, very high standard of cleanliness and staff are very friendly and helpful. Will always stay here in future.

22.08.2016

Wonderful experience. Personnel are exceptional! From now on, Motel-One is my first choice of accommodations when I'm in Europe!

21.08.2016

Spent one night at Motel One whilst visiting Edinburgh for the Tattoo. We arrived earlier than anticipated, but the reception staff found us a room that we could check in to without waiting. All the staff were helpful, especially Iain, whose knowledge of Edinburgh was fantastic. We would definitely stay at Motel One when visiting Edinburgh in the future, it is ideally situated for the train station and many visitor attractions.

21.08.2016

Excellent location , staff. Hotel bright clean and comfortable. Room decent size , big comfortable bed. Bathroom very nice but no bath. Overall very good and would recommend to anyone. I

21.08.2016

Very pleased with the room, which was larger than the rooms at Motel One we have had previously. It was quiet and the bed very comfortable, good shower too. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Nothing to fault. Room rate was expensive but our stay coincided with the Edinburgh Fringe, so that's to be expected.....

21.08.2016

Well situated hotel, with beautifaul decor! Friendly, welcoming staff. Comfortable stay. Only comments to reach score of 10 - ironing facilities and full cooked breakfst 'option' at extra cost.

21.08.2016

Location was excellent. Met by very pleasant doorman and checked in and out by lovely staff. Our room was very big , spacious clean and had all the necessary extras. Definitely stay again

20.08.2016

Everything is good, but if you have dust/particle allergy, room may cause issues.

20.08.2016

Comfortable and well located hotel. Good Breakfast

19.08.2016

Great location and very good hotel. Staff super friendly and helpful. Lovely lounge/breakfast room overlooking Princess Street Gardens. Bedrooms spacious on Princess Street side with views luxurious super king bed free wi-fi nice bathroom. Good breakfast great hotel and good value for all the above reasons

19.08.2016

Most enjoyable stay, staff amazing from booking in to leaving our luggage for a few hours at the end of our stay. The location is perfect for the festival The room and the bed were very comfortable slept like a log don't know whether that was the bed or walking around Edinburgh for 12 hours a day. You are doing right keep it up. Well done Paul

18.08.2016

This was my 3rd visit and it has never disappointed us. Friendly, clean and comfortable with a warm welcome each time. Location is perfect! The breakfast choice is great for someone who likes to eat well with lots of choice. We'll Be back!

18.08.2016

Great budget hotel in the centre of Edinburgh. Basic but very clean and they actually have organic toiletries that you would use. The best hair dryers of any hotel so don't bring your own you won't need it. Staff are always friendly and helpful I stay here every year during the festival it's excellent value at that time of year.

17.08.2016

Great room and all the usual high quality services

17.08.2016

Good services. All realy clean.

17.08.2016

I really enjoy the hotel itself and all the staff was very helpfull and polite. The breakfast was amazing altough it could be complete with some cooked breakfast as sausages, bacon, mushrooms..... In the room I missed a wardrobe, I think that there are enough space for one. Another good thing may be a little fridge. The shower was amazing too. One thing a little bit scary was the flushing of another room during the night. I think it was the room above mine (111), but I´m not sure. It was really annoying.

17.08.2016

Nice, clean, helpfull staff - only wished that the towels had strops to hang them up with :) And it would be nice, if the pillows were softer or thinner...

16.08.2016

We were spoilt last year by having an excellent room (the Turret Room). Unfortunately this year the room (#200) was stuffy and uncomfortable particularly with no aircon. However, great location for the Fringe.

16.08.2016

I like the hotel and décor. The room is quite basic but fine. it would be good to have an iron and ironing board and some biscuits for the coffee/tea. I didn't like the choice of only continental breakfast and also it was in a very dark room so I felt intimidated to go alone to eat there.

16.08.2016

Fantastic value for money, and excellent location. Great service too, and I liked the contemporary yet cosy design. The only improvement I can think of is to add a safe in the room.

15.08.2016

Check-in was swift and professional. Even when I went down and the staff have changed, I got greeted with friendly smiles. I even got an upgrade: A window with a view on the 4th floor - how about that! The staff when I checked out at 4 a.m. in the morning was cordial and professional as well. Awake and lively hahaha! Thanks very much!

15.08.2016

Staff friendly and helpful.Rooms attractive and spotless.

15.08.2016

Great hotel, friendly staff and Edinbugh Princes Street is a great location. When I last stayed the air con wasn't great, but thankfully there was a fan in the room as it was very warm while we were there. The only other thing I could think to improve would be the showers, they aren't very powerful. But overall a great hotel and I would always return.

14.08.2016

Great place to stay, especially the location.

14.08.2016

This is my third time staying at Motel One Princes St., Edinburgh with a group of students from the University of Denver. For the price, the rooms are perfect and so is the location. I have the impression that Motel One is a well run organization with a sound business philosophy. This is especially evident in the personalities of the amazing staff at the hotel. Every interaction with staff has been positive. I love this hotel, and especially the staff. Thank you.

14.08.2016

Stayed here for a week through work, on arrival to check in some small talk started with receptionist. Stating that I was from Aberdeen the lady then proceeded to tell me that she thought Aberdeen was a 'dull' city... Rather rude and not the welcome I would expect from a first point of contact in the hotel. As our company had paid for breakfast, we said that we were going to be starting work at 6 and if there was any way we could be provided with a piece of fruit or something that could be eaten on the go, this was quickly turned down and no offer of anything whatsoever was given. We asked two member of staff about this and then proceeded to ask if our 'breakfast' could be deducted from the bill. Having stayed hotels with poorer stars than Motel One, they have gone out of their way to provide some sort of breakfast. Marks on the room wall (looked like a dark liquid of some sort) was there from the beginning to end of my stay. Over all not a pleasant stay and sadly won't be returning.

24.08.2016

Schon beim Empfang wurden wir freundig begrüsst. Wir haben uns immer wohlgefühlt und auch unsere schwierigeren Anfragen (Wo kann man essen gehen nach 23:00, ...) wurden prompt und fundiert beantwortet. Die Zimmer waren sehr gut und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt.

24.08.2016

gewohnte Umgebung. Nettes Personal, besonders der Empfang. Ja es ist Festivalzeit, aber trotzdem für ein Budget - Hotel zu teuer. fast doppelter Preis als normal.

22.08.2016

Consierge Service bei der Lage (keine Parkplätze vor Ort) angebracht und sehr freundlich. Zimmer Standard und sauber wie immer. Frühstück war auch gut, allerdings das Refill am Buffet war schlecht. Die Mitarbeiter haben auch dreckiges Geschirr stehen lassen bzw. laufen leer daran vorbei (an nicht mehr benutzten Tischen). Das geht gar nicht!

15.08.2016

Wir haben eine Nacht in Ihrem Hotel verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden. Meine Frau und ich würden jederzeit wieder Ihr Hotel auswählen. Es war alles zu unserer Zufriedenheit.

14.08.2016

Zentrale Lage, sauberes, funktionelles Zimmer. Trotz geschlossener Fenster relativ hoher Geräuschpegel von Princess Street. Ablagen auf beiden Seiten des Bettes wären prima. Lage der Rezeption nicht sofort ersichtlich. Besserer Hinweis am Eingang wäre hilfreich.
