Our stay was great from the moment wee arrived, hotel is lovley and clean staff were great, rooms were so quiet looking forward to comming back next year, thanks again motel 1

06.12.2016

Great central position and staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms lovely and clean and everything you need although minimal decor . Would definitely use this motel again. Only negative was the 2 lifts and 5 minute walk to our room which was in the next building .

06.12.2016

Hotel was modern with a Great location, close to all local amenities. Went for the Christmas markets so was a little disappointed when we were given a room with no view, room was dark and looked out onto a hidden side street. Maybe next time it will be worth asking for a room with a view :)

06.12.2016

Excellent staff, very modern hotel in the centre of Edinburgh.....what's not to like.

06.12.2016

Clean comfortable room, tv wasn't working and soundproofing could have been better. breakfast was fine but the small low tables are uncomfortable and impracticable. Very pleasant staff.

06.12.2016

A fabulous find on the Internet. Lovely hotel, great location at a fantastic price. We'll definitely use Motel One again.

06.12.2016

The bed that was in our room creaked every time either of us moved which kept us awake all night. We mentioned it to the staff in the morning and they did nothing.

06.12.2016

Hotel ideal location for all amenities. Prompt checking with luggage storage for early arrival. Rooms with splendid views and very comfortable. Reasonably priced considering location. Friendly staff and nice breakfasts. Well pleased.

06.12.2016

Great stay as always. Brilliant staff. Very friendly.

06.12.2016

It's the 1st time we have stayed at your hotel in Edinburgh & we were so impressed. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, the room was spacious very clean & well laid out, it is the quietest hotel I have every stayed in ( even being on a main road) so I had a great sleep. We ordered breakfast as and extra and wow! it was wonderful & again the staff were lovely. 10/10 for everything, fantastic,great,very happy & have told so many people already how good it was the only problem it might be so busy I wont be able to book a room. We definately will be back & we are local so we can just keep coming. THANK YOU THANK YOU : ) Joan Hetherington

06.12.2016

Very well located, but very unconfortable due to the high temperature iside the room; even thoug we turn off the system and also opened the small window, we had a very bad night for this reason.

06.12.2016

perfect location clean friendly staff will stay again well recommended

06.12.2016

Very nice hotel in great location but tropical temperatures in the rooms we had (540, 542 and 544) I'm sure the beds were really comfortable but I could not sleep for the heat which meant we were tired the following day Receptionist seemed to be fully aware of the problem as she said if you use the temperature instructions in the room you will just move the hot air around. Did not even offer us any sympathy Tables with kettle are about 3m away from the nearest socket - meant boiling a kettle on the floor

06.12.2016

Lovely stay, comfortable hotel. First room offered wasn't suitable, but no problem moving to another room. Would definitely recommend.

05.12.2016

Perfect position ;spotlessly clean ; helpful friendly staff; always our choice of hotel when in Edinburgh - can't beat its value for money - we will be back !!!

05.12.2016

A budget hotel that misses the mark. The biggest mistake this hotel makes is the air conditioning as the three times i have spent with motel one the rooms have been uncomfortably hot. The staff are great and the breakfast is good aswell. The other poor things where there was a ridiculously stupid lay out of plug sockets meaning i had to hold a boiling kettle in mid air as there is no plug anywhere near the table. Aswell as this one of the two given key cards would not work. Told reception and they switched it out but then the other card stopped working. Just another generally dissapointing stay. If they fix the air conditioning then i would recommend but until then i would recommend going to an other budget hotel.

05.12.2016

Wonderful location, right next to Edinburgh Waverley station. There is a warm, welcoming vibe from the place. Very helpful and friendly staff. There are lifts, which is always a plus. The rooms are very clean and quiet. Good value for money. Almost perfect if not for the lack of an in-room mini-fridge!

05.12.2016

Once again Motel One proved great Central location, clean room. comfortable bed, lovely shower with lots of hot water and really friendly helpful and efficient staff

05.12.2016

For what I had to do, the hotel was perfectly situated city centre close to the main attractions, bars and restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were extremely helpful.

05.12.2016

This was a great hotel for the price. Overall good value for money. Plus. Nice decorations in keeping with Edinburgh , but hip vibe. Friendly staff. Nice size room. Good shower. Nice bar area. Good wifi. Loved fireplace tv channel. Minus. Sockets half way up wall.. no sockets by desk area for phone computer etc. Did not like combined shower wash and shampoo. Room was in adjacent building, very very complicated way to get to it, only some walls to follow were painted. Did not like that at all. To far to go up to use bathroom. Hotel toilets from bar were up one set stairs then down three sets , 3 doors! To get to a bathroom please!!! Television only showed a few channels all the others had an error message. Took long time to turn on and change channels. Overall good for price paid. Great location!

05.12.2016

Excellent hotel and plan to stay next year while the German market is here

05.12.2016

Motel One is the very best budget accommodation in city centre. Excellent value for money, continental breakfast great. Room, fresh, clean, good size, great shower. Overall best deal for city centre budget hotel. Do not go anywhere else.

05.12.2016

Clean, comfortable and brilliantly located!

04.12.2016

After arriving early and finding out I had booked the wrong room, the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful, changing our booking at no extra cost as it was off peak, though if we had been charged it was a fairly nominal amount which I would have been happy to pay as it was my mistake.We checked in early to our room which was a bonus and found the whole stay extremely enjoyable, this is the best budget hotel we have ever stayed in and would highly recommend it. Location is excellent, so close to the station and a short walk to all amenities.

04.12.2016

third time in staying with Motel One in Edin & again great place, service & location

04.12.2016

I stayed here for one night on two separate occasions last week, at the start and end of my journey to the highlands. My first stay was wonderful - no issues at all. My second was not so good. The room I was in on the 3rd floor directly backed onto an alleyway that it used at all hours of the night and was quite noisy. I also could not see the tv from the bed due to its positioning which was not ideal. However, the worst thing was that I had two separate maids knock on my door the following morning, 9!3 at 8:45am and one at just gone 9am despite my door not disturb sign being up. I was facing a 7 hour train journey that day and planned on sleeping in but the first one work me up and I only just made it to the door as she was about to let herself in. She apologised and I let it go as a genuine mistake. However, I was then getting back to sleep and it happened again with a different maid about 20 minutes later. By this point I was getting very annoyed. I asked her why she was the second maid to knock on my door and pointed at the do not disturb sign and she just sheepishly walked off. I was not impressed at all! I did make a complaint about this to the reception when I checked out but all I was offered was a free coffee - I don't drink coffee and I had a train to catch, which I explained. If I had rated my second night's stay separately, the scores would not have been anywhere near as favourable. The issue with the maids would somewhat deter me from booking this hotel again, despite my first stay being more than acceptable.

04.12.2016

Great stay once again. All staff very helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean. Will definatley book this hotel again.

04.12.2016

lovely hotel .very clean rooms. room 611 was very quiet. staff very polite and friendly .breakfast very good. needs another chair and small table. enjoyed our stay and would definitely stop there again.

04.12.2016

Was not impressed with the journey to my room 441 - up in the lift, following a maze of corridors to then have to go down a flight of stairs... not great. Room was ok, basic but ok. Biggest issue was only two plug sockets in the entire room, both at waist height with no table near either of them. So couldnt plug in the kettle and using the hotel as a work base was not poor as not enough practically based sockets to charge phone / laptop etc. I would recommend based on location not on facilities.

03.12.2016

The hotel was very clean and modern. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The room was basic but adequate and the bed was very comfortable. The rooms have quirky little features which gives the hotel a modern feel. The rooms are very well priced for a city centre hotel and I would definitely come back and stay here again. The added extra of having to somewhere to store your bags if you arrive early or when you check out was ideal. It meant we could checkout and continue to explore Edinburgh without having to lug our bags around with us.

03.12.2016

Superb value for money and first rate customer service. Excellent location and spotless room. Good ambience in the public areas. Will definitely stay with Motel one again.

03.12.2016

Hotel in excellent central location. Very clean. Only improvement would be if they were to over both full English as well as continental breakfasts.

03.12.2016

The location was great! We could see the motel immediately right after getting off the air link bus from Edinburgh airport. The room was spacious and cozy. I personally prefer a room that is not stuffy so it was great that I got a room with a window that I could open to let the winter air in.

02.12.2016

fantastic value for money, well maintained room to very friendly staff. located in the ideal place too

02.12.2016

Perfect.

02.12.2016

Perfect location for exploring the city, 2 minute walk from Waverley, 5 min walk to the Xmas markets and princess street and bus stop outside the hotel to take you to the zoo and airport. Reception staff were very good and friendly and let us store our bags away before and checking in and after checking out.

02.12.2016

Not worth the 69 pound I payed for the night, . Dirty bed sheets . Hotel room was for disabled person meaning I was to big for the shower . Toilet was blocked . Fire alarm went off in the early hours of the morning and no member of staff came to tell us if it was a false alarm or if everything was ok and no apology was given for this . Complained when checked out and was told the manager couldn't speak to me so the receptionist gave me a free nights stay in any motel one hotels. Which to be honest after this experience I don't want to stay in one again and would like to know how to make a formal complaint.

02.12.2016

Great staff, room lovely, shower amazing, bed comfy. Great value for money, only problem and it's not major, wifi was terrible and no telly in d bar.

02.12.2016

The hotel is lovely and modern with a hint of quirk. The location is fantastic for visiting Edinburgh as is close to all amenities.

02.12.2016

Great location, friendly staff and clean comfortable beds

02.12.2016

Both my wife and I found hotel excellently situated with travel by train. Ideal ,location to visit all there is to see on offer in Edinburgh. Only met staff on reception area but all were a credit to their profession, customer service at it's very best. Room on 6th floor bit of a trek to get there and although room very small certainly very clean comfortable and good value for £69.00. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends.

02.12.2016

Had brilliant short stay in Edinburgh , this hotel is excellent value for money ,perfect location , very modern and squeaky clean will definatley stay again .

01.12.2016

Stylish hotel in a great location. All members of staff were very polite and friendly. We had a fantastic view of the Christmas market from our room 420 and all for the amazing price of £79. So handy for shops, market and the train station. Would highly recommend this hotel and would defo stay again.

01.12.2016

Excellent location very clean and friendly staff.

01.12.2016

Easily the best hotel I have stayed in. Beautiful room and amazing bathroom. A fantastic location. Friendly staff, perfect breakfast. Very innovative, from the coffee machine to the shower and the range of sockets and design of the room-everything was Perfect. This was a Christmas present to spend the night in Edinburgh and this made the trip, even as memorable as the castle itself. Anywhere I travel in Europe from now on, I'll be looking for motel one before settling for anywhere else.

01.12.2016

Everything about this hotel was excellent!! From check in to check out. Fantastic customer service from all staff, room was great no fuss clean and comfy bed..! Will be using this brand hotel from now on.

01.12.2016

All better than expected for the price. Service was great. Only problem was a lack of plug points in the right places in the room.

06.12.2016

Das erste Mal im Motel One Royal in Edingburg, aber bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal. Zimmer und Service wie immer top, die Lage ausgezeichnet, weil zentral gelegen in Sichtweite der ShoppingMeile , Weihnachtsmarkt und in wenigen Schritten in die Altstadt .

06.12.2016

Wir sind unglaublich freundlich und nett empfangen worden. Alles sehr sauber und das Personal immer ausgesprochen höflich! Wir kommen gerne wieder.

06.12.2016

Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter an der Rezeption - Vor allem Adam. Vielen Dank - nur zum empfehlen!
