Excellent!

22.09.2016

Situated so close to Edinburgh Waverley Station making travel easy. Staff were so friendly....happy and helpful. So glad we choose to book a return stay (:

21.09.2016

Very positive: Staff were friendly and eager to help. Since we had to make two bookings to cover our entire stay it was difficult to keep us in the same room which was resolved through granting us an upgrade. Negative: In the small hours of every night music (from the lounge below?) could be heard playing which kept us from sleeping.

21.09.2016

Rooms are too small; nearly no space for 2 bags for 2 people. Nice style (as usual). Extremely nice bath room, but also too small. Very expensive for a Motel One Hotel.

20.09.2016

Lack of phone in the room which made it challenging to communicate to the front desk. I loved your crew. They were helpful, friendly and always ready to help.

20.09.2016

Our stay fully met our needs and expectations. We thoroughly enjoy stopping at this hotel. Great location, modern & well presented facilities. Friendly & helpful staff. We will be back.

19.09.2016

Room was too hot, heating was turned up to 30 degrees when I arrived and the room never really cooled down as no air-conditioning.

19.09.2016

Friendly welcoming staff. Room clean and comfortable. Location excellent for access to local sites, shops, etc.

19.09.2016

Hi, We have stayed with you before and love the hotel, fantastic location, staff etc. Just on this occasion the aircon was not working in the room, we had no phone in the room to ring reception so had a very uncomfortable nights sleep. It was really hot.

19.09.2016

From my Trip Advisor Review The concierge is mentioned elsewhere in these reviews and is service personified and helped a very irritated hire car renter to eventually locate the local office to return the vehicle. Otherwise this hotel manages to be budget at the top end of pricing. In the room the lack of a "dressing table" with mirror and sockets was noted, no shaver socket in the bathroom (actually no bath a walk in shower) hanging rails no cupboards and one rail is across the full length mirror. No bedside tables or equivalent, where to put those nighttime accessories? Beware the rooms can be very stuffy with just noisy air circulation, opening the windows is a challenge and, because of the Hotel's position on Princes Street the street sounds can be very intrusive. Continental breakfast in the Bar/Lounge adequate but pricey though the poor layout of seating is a triumph of interior design over practicality.

Everything good except the temperature in the room. It was too hot and not possible to regulate.

18.09.2016

Clean, friendly and great position. Very impressed.

18.09.2016

The staff was very nice, the room was beautiful.

17.09.2016

Staff were very welcoming and the room was spotlessly clean. It is so convenient just having to walk across the road from the train station.

17.09.2016

Exactly what was required for the evening.

16.09.2016

Great location , friendly staff , very clean

16.09.2016

Great value, comfortable bed, exceptionally friendly staff.

14.09.2016

good value for money great location very friendly and helpful staff very clean rooms with all relevant equipment

14.09.2016

Can't fault the friendliness of the staff. Acceptable everywhere else, for a budget hotel, though the 'bad drains' smell in the room was unpleasant - I think it came through the air-con vent. I switched the air-con off but the room was then too warm and stuffy since it was so small (room 324)

13.09.2016

Interesting definition of "budget" but then Edinburgh is not a cheap place! Didn't mind so much having only rails to hang clothes on, the one over the mirror could be annoying, fortunately I did not have to use that one. It was the lack of other storage capacity I found difficult - the table was very small, especially with a fan on it (no air conditioning, only air circulation) and having a drawer in it would have helped to put small things away. With nowhere to stand a suitcase which could be used as a temporary storage (not all of us are able to crouch on the floor these days to do that), two shelves only (with one already storing the hairdryer) above and below the coffee "cupboard" made it difficult not to bang your head when using. A lack of a shaver socket and no adaptor available from reception was a nuisance. It was nice to know that they had european sockets as well as UK sockets, and if I had known that in advance. I could have brought my european adaptor which would have solved the charging the toothbrush problem. Had to buy one in the end, annoyingly. It also lacked anywhere to put glasses or alarm clock by the side of the bed, and the one "comfortable" chair was not at all ... All that said, I found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly, especially Ian, the concierge, who seemed to be everywhere! Shower had not grab rail, and slippy tiles when when. I personally dislike rainhead showers - very overrated. Beds fine, pillows good, but a bit too high, and synthetic which makes me sweat. All in all, not a bad experience, and I have known much worse, but with a little attention to these little details it could be so much better. I do wonder if anyone has tested out these rooms before they were used ... if you don't wear spectacles, which you need to use to walk around, you will not know the need for a shelf close at hand, or indeed, for a shaver socket if you don't use a chargeable toothbrush. Maybe this would be a useful way to check these things out!

13.09.2016

Everything was well organized and everybody was friendly.

13.09.2016

Optimum location and excelent service. I like the concept of Motel One. You have everything you need for a short trip - minimalism at excellent quality.

13.09.2016

The service, especially the concierge, was excellent, and the location is convenient . In keeping with much contemporary design, the room was rather sparse--no real closet, very little storage space. The bed was very comfortable, and the lighting was good.

13.09.2016

Very nice hotel, well located and nice room. Our only "complaints"is that we missed the direct line to reception, shower cap and a more space to hang clothes and leave our things... we stayed a week and this ended up being a small problem.

13.09.2016

Excellent locación, the room was ok, more eléctrical plug needed, too simple, bathroom clean and with goog light, perfect

12.09.2016

Once again stay was pleasurable - room ready early;staff friendly and helpful and an unexpected free upgrade! Whats not to like? We'll be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12.09.2016

My favourite place to stay when in Edinburgh Thank for you such an easy check in and out and for having the most friendly staff and service. Made my stay very enjoyable!

12.09.2016

Our 2nd stay and again excellent. Staff are so helpful and take a real interest in our comfort. Really enjoy staying so close to the heart of action in Edinburgh.

12.09.2016

Stylish and modern. Bed was comfortable and warm. En suite facilities were very good. Staff are universally excellent, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, motivated to please and clearly well-trained. Great place to stay.

11.09.2016

Enjoyed my stay and would stay again. Like always, missed breakfast as it was later and I had an early flight but all these places do that, without nothing to eat when you leave early, not even a cup of coffee. I am sure somewhere along the way you are charged for a breakfast which you don't receive.

11.09.2016

absolute good location that is a steps away from train station. a lot of sightseeing is near the hotel. breakfast is good. but one waste basket in a room could be two. a tissue box could be provided to bedroom

10.09.2016

Very nice hotel at a great, central location. Modern and nice value.

10.09.2016

We booked three stays and a total of 6 nights with you between 23 August and 8 September, with days between stays spent exploring other parts of Scotland. Your location was very good for our connections coming by train from Glasgow and taking two different Rabbies tours. We found the rooms adequate for our short stays, though we could have used more hangers. We appreciated the Princes Street view for our first and third stays (not so much the back alley view for the second stay), and the good lighting in the room.

10.09.2016

Friendly people. Nice corner room.

22.09.2016

Top Lage - Super Hotel - tolle Zimmer.... Standards von Motel One haben bei der Kette überall in Europa durchgesetzt!

21.09.2016

Das Motelone in Edinburgh war gut, so wie ich es von motelone aus 6 anderen Städten kenne. Geärgert hat mich der Wechselkurs GBP / €. Hier hat motelone einen für den Kunden sehr nachteiligen Kurs berechnet, der nicht dem aktuellen Marktkurs entsprach!

20.09.2016

Empfang gut und freundlich, Zimmer gross, aber muffig und dunkel.

18.09.2016

Wie immer : nette und hilfsbereite mitarbeiter, tolles frühstück, bekannter, guter zimmerstandart, alles da, was man braucht. Sehr gute lage inmitten der stadt, daher nicht so ganz leise, dafür aber mittendrin und jede menge restaurants drumherum.

18.09.2016

Tolle Lage, super Service, sehr freundlichen Mitarbeiter. Preis-Leistung sehr gut

16.09.2016

Anreise vom Flughafen mit dem Airlink Bus, Ausstieg Waverley Station, nur kurzer Fußweg. Check-In erst nach Mitternacht, sehr freundliches Personal. Wir konnten an der Bar noch Wasser kaufen für auf´s Zimmer und bekamen Gläser mit Eiswürfen dazu. Alle Sehenswürigkeiten gut zu Fuß zu errreichen, vom Hotel raus links gibt es 2 nette Pubs, immer gut besucht. Grundsätzlich freuen wir uns immer, wenn im Hotelzimmer ein Safe und ein kleiner Kühlschrank vorhanden ist, gab es leider nicht.

16.09.2016

Ich war das 1. Mal in einem Motel One, habe aber schon öfters nur positive Eindrücke erfahren. Eine Verbesserung, die ich als sehr nützlich empfinden würde: eine einfache schmale Bank/Brett, auf der man einen Koffer plazieren und auch aufmachen kann, damit dies nicht auf dem Fussboden geschehen muss (sie haben doch sicherlich auch ältere Gäste).

14.09.2016

Sehr freundlicher Service, attraktiver Lobbybereich, schönes ruhiges Zimmer.

13.09.2016

Guter service,angenehme Ausstatung des Zimmers Sehr gute Lage

12.09.2016

Im Zimmer war es viel zu warm, was v.a. in der Nacht sehr unangenehm war. Da das Fenster nicht komplett zu öffnen ist, wäre es wichtig, dass man die Temperatur im Zimmer selbst regeln kann.

12.09.2016

Alles Bestens. Auch, dass in Zusammenarbeit mit einer Tiefgarage der Tagesticketpreis reduziert wird ist klasse! Super Lage, Zimmer total ausreichend und sauber - was will man mehr.

11.09.2016

Bewährte Qualität: gute Betten, funktionelles Bad, Schallschutzfenster, zentrale Lage. Leider sehr wenig Stauflaeche, daher für einen längeren Aufenthalt wenig geeignet. Im Bad fehlte eine Steckdose. Französische Bettdecke. Insgesamt gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhaeltnis, sehr freundliches Personal.
