Excellent location, across the street from bus tours and train station. Clean and remarkably quiet, considering the location. A clock radio would have been very helpful, and a picture on the wall would have been nice. We did not have breakfast there because of the price and we eat light in the morning.

27.05.2016

Great location, nice ambience. We have a Premier business account but I will use motel one where possible now after my first experience

27.05.2016

We had a great experience. Was able to check in early, even though not planned in advance, which was a huge bonus. Loved the nice big room with a view. Everything very clean. Comfy bed. Would have liked a couple of extra towels in the bathroom and a socket and little table on both sides of the bed.

26.05.2016

We enjoyed our stay, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was one issue which issue though. The room was very hot, the air conditioning unit did not work which did affect our ability to sleep.

26.05.2016

The staff were so friendly & welcoming,the rooms were great & the location was excellent so close to everything & a few minutes from the airport bus.Wiuld highly recommend this hotel.

26.05.2016

Our stay was not as enjoyable as in 2014, because our room was stuffy and warm because the aircon was not switched on.

24.05.2016

overall the service could be improved i rented 2 rooms for 3 days for my family after the first night my brothers room was not cleaned and towels not changed and carpets not hoovered he had to go and complain. Our room there seemed to be some confusion after our first day the room was not cleaned at all the cleaner told us they were finishing at 3 pm my wife made the bed and they managed to change towels before leaving. That was the only complaint all the other services were in Motel 1 were good Regards Edward O' Neill

24.05.2016

Great location immaculate room and friendly staff overall good value for money

24.05.2016

we had a room with no windoes the room was like a hothouse i had to ask for a electric fan overall not a nice stay.

24.05.2016

Very clean, modern facilities with friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms are a bit snug but that is typical for a European hotel. Unless you are a big breakfast eater I would pass on the hotel breakfast. It is a bit pricey for an a la carte selection and there are many other options in the area.

24.05.2016

It's not a luxury accommodation, however, fitted with high quality German bathroom fittings. Very basic, clean and friendly staffs. Overall good for someone on budget and very close to Edinburgh Waverley station.

24.05.2016

This is now the 12th times I am staying in Motel One Edinburgh (tried Royal and princess). Both are fantastic never been disappointed. Breakfast is really good (croissant were really top quality and I am french...) My favourite treats in place... Erdinger beer and the very simple but SO effective one basic panini... Do not change it is perfect. If I have to say one thing is that the rooms get overly hot during night and the absence of A/C does not help though I have no solution on that (natural forced air ventilation to avoid cost of AC installation?) Regards Charly

24.05.2016

Overall good. The only negative really was that the reception were a bit overwhelmed when large parties came in (who didn't seem to have to wait to check in like we did). A 3pm check-in seems very late, especially for us who had to catch an early flight up to Edinburgh. We were killing time for 5 hours before we were allowed to our room, but watched lots of others check- in far earlier. I accept there are probably valid logistical reasons for this, but it wasn't communicated very well at reception.

23.05.2016

I stayed in room 206 which was very disappointing. It lacked light due to the windows being small and high up which made the room feel very small and hemmed in. The bathroom was very small too and I was surprised there wasn't a bath which I was looking forward to after my long journey. The room was also very cold, no heating on at all. It wasn't until I got into bed with double layers on that I realised I could hear the music from the lift/reception area and the automated voice from the lift. Luckily I was so tired I must have fallen asleep. Unfortunately I was woken around 6ish with the noise of something being wheeled back and forth near my room. At first I thought it was in the hotel but when I looked out of the window it was the clean laundry being delivered and the dirty laundry being taken away. This was the first chance I had for a lie in for weeks having children at home so again very disappointing. I did complain to the reception who did say they would refund my breakfast which I was very pleased about. But not for long, another disappointment, no cooked food which I would have expected. I have stayed in numerous lower cost hotels on business and found this experience the worst I have had. Can I just add the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean and tidy.

23.05.2016

It was adequate for a budget hotel although I woudln't say £90 was budget! There was no plug near the kettle, I had to move the stool over to beneath a plug, place the kettle on the stool and stretch the cable up to plug in. Unsafe and a bit comical!

23.05.2016

Everything was fine except for the "bang" of the bathroom door every time it was closing. It was also quite cold in the room, but that was good when we should sleep.

23.05.2016

Excellent location, friendly staff (as in all Motel Ones), comfortable room, good value breakfast.

23.05.2016

Perfect location for sight seeing. The hotel is nicely updated and rooms are comfortable with the exception of the beds, they are hard and made my back hurt. Also the breakfast was a little limited, I do not care for cold cuts for breakfast. The biggest thing though was learning upon checking in that there are no rooms with more than one bed. If I had known this prior to booking I definitely would not have booked here. This should have been made very clear on your website. For the price I would still recommend this hotel to people who only need one bed becuase of cleanliness, location and updated decor and furniture.

23.05.2016

Very modern, clean and comfortable. Kendall went out of her way to assist me in my request and did so with a smile. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout my stay in both a business capacity and then leisure. i was glad to have chosen to stay on in the hotel for the weekend after working in the city.

23.05.2016

The hotel was very lovely! We had a great stay. The room was big enough, tidy and clean. Although there are two things you could improve: 1. There are no little tables near the bed, so we didn't have a place to put our things like books, creams or cellphone. We had to put them on the floor or stand up and put them in the table under the tv. 2. We had a boiling cattle but there was no electricity plug near the table where it was, so we had to put it in the floor. Besides that, everything was great! The bed soft and the breakfast was excellent!

23.05.2016

Perfect location, bright and beautiful rooms. Breakfast was superb. Friendly staff.

23.05.2016

Wonderful location; clean and comfortable; helpful and friendly staff.

21.05.2016

Best location, perfect room, good breakfast.

21.05.2016

We had to request a room change due to workmen opposite our 7th floor room could see in plus the noise. The receptionist who helped was very helpful but one Asian female receptionist was more interested in the fact of not being able to re-sell the room because house keeping had finished for the day. Not caring about us at all. Also we found the kettle/plug situation a joke. Please get it sorted.

21.05.2016

Was wary of staying here when it uses the word "budget" but I couldn't have been happier with my choice!! Very nice, clean hotel and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

20.05.2016

Very clean modern hotel, bed comfortable, great shower and superb location. Staff faultless. Only problems were room too warm and only one electrical socket which was in a strange place, near neither bed nor kettle.

20.05.2016

Very clean, tidy and welcoming. However the heating was broken and staff coud not turn it off. My room was at the back of the hotel and I could not get any cool air. It was like staying in a sauna. I did not sleep and was not refreshed in the morning. I spoke with staff and I was offered another night ( I was returning home) or 50% refund. This was inadequate and failed to compensate me for having to attend a conference where I was presenting feeling exhausted. If I had been told about before I got to the hotel I would have stayed elsewhere.

19.05.2016

It was a great location and the staff was very helpful.

18.05.2016

There was no window in the room, no AC, it was extremlt hot, we couldn't sleep...

18.05.2016

I don't like rooms with no outside windows in the wall

18.05.2016

We were very happy with the location, and our room was good. Staff were friendly and helpful. No problems at all.

18.05.2016

Attractive foyer, nice staff, great room with a view. Excellent location.

18.05.2016

Very nice hotel for the money. Location was unbeatable. Nice furnishings and the staff was as helpful and pleasant as could be.

17.05.2016

Great funky hotel with lovely staff at amazing price. Would use motel one again.

17.05.2016

Overall stay was good. However, we would have liked to have a couple of easy chairs in our room; a telephone in case of emergency and bedside cabinets We would say that the staff were very polite and very helpful; the room was very nice and clean and the bedding was very clean and the bed very comfortable

17.05.2016

Lovely staff on arrival. Loved the room. Very quirky. Would request it next time. Great view too. Super comfy bed and soft towels. Lovely tea and coffee. Felt like a much more expensive stay than it cost. Just what you want! Will be back in a couple of months

17.05.2016

I would definitely recommend this hotel. The rooms were inviting and clean. Staff was pleasant. Located centrally in game city, walking distance from the castle.

17.05.2016

Unfortunately we had no heating in our room. This meant when we arrived very late from our flight (12pm) we had to go to sleep in a room that did not have any heating. We then told the cleaner the next morning, who provided us with an electric heater (strange that the room itself did not have heating despite there being a thermostat on the wall?!). This was ok, but didn't allow us to get a comfortable temperature in the room and as they can be quite dangerous we would turn it off while out, meaning again we arrived back to a very cold and uncomfortable room. The booking process meant I had somehow booked a double room but for a single occupancy(?) so we were told we owed more money on arrival and generally felt disappointed with out stay. I wouldn't recommend this place to others apart from the positive location. There were hair grips on the floor, suggesting the hovering was also inadequate.

26.05.2016

Kurzfristige Buchung, schnell und unkompliziert, Anreise um 12.00 möglich, freundlich, sehr sauber, sehr angenehm!

26.05.2016

Fast alles sehr gut, dass Frühstück würde ich mir englischer wünschen.

25.05.2016

Gut bis auf das Zimmer ohne Fenster! Zimmer ohne Fenster zu vermieten und dies nicht explizit auf der Homepage zu erwähnen, geht in der heutigen Zeit nicht mehr.

25.05.2016

Der Aufenthalt in ihrem Haus war sehr angenehm; das Wohlfühlen begann bereits mit dem Einchecken. Das Zimmer im Nebengebäude war zwar etwas kalt, aber die Klimaanlage konnte schnell Abhilfe verschaffen. Auch das Frühstück war abwechslungsreich und reichhaltig. Es hat uns gut gefallen.

24.05.2016

sauberes Hotel, mini Punkt Abzug wegen knarrender Badezimmertür, sonst perfekt.

22.05.2016

Alles super. Schönes Zimmer, bequeme Betten, sehr freundliches Personal, guter WLAN Empfang, super Lage, leckeres Frühstück. Einziges Manko ist die Badezimmertür. Diese fällt von alleine sehr laut zu. Nicht nur im eigenen Zimmer nervig, sondern auch, wenn man das Zuschlagen aus anderen Zimmern hört.

19.05.2016

Unglaublich freundliches und hilfbereites Personal, tolle Zimmerausstattung, schallgedämmte Gänge und Zimmer, perfekte Lage. Es war ein toller Aufenthalt, vielen Dank gerne wieder.

19.05.2016

Total gut, Total gefreut haben wir uns an den bemalten frühstückseiern, die haben ein Lächeln sofort hervorgezaubert

18.05.2016

Top Lage, gute Zimmer, gutes Frühstücksbuffet, nettes Personal. Leider beim Frühstück sehr eng und wenig Sitzplätze

18.05.2016

Ein herausragendes Hotelzimmer in der schönsten Toplage der City. Gelungene Kombi aus historischem Gebäude mit super moderner Innenaustattung. Sehr guter Service. Alles bestens und sehr gern wieder.

18.05.2016

Zimmer+Bad sauber / Super Lage, nur ca. 50 Meter von der Bushaltestelle entfernt / Wasserkocher vorhanden (stand leider nicht in der Hotelbeschreiben, so dass ich einen eigenen dabei hatte) Dusche benötigt noch einen Duschvorhang o.ä. Ich habe das Bad so wie es ist beim Duschen unter Wasser gesetzt, was leider zu einen erhöhten Handtuchverbrauch führt. Auch hatte ich den Eindruck, dass benutzte Handtücher (beim Waschbecken) ersetzt wurden, obwohl ich sie extra nicht in die Dusche gelegt hatte. Das es keinen Schrank gibt, finde ich okay. Hatte schon oft sehr unangenehm riechende Schränke. Finde die Nische mit Kleiderbügeln sehr gut.

Wir sind oft bei Städtereisen im Motel One. Auch dieses Hotel können wir sehr empfehlen. Zentraler kann ein Hotel in Edinburgh nicht liegen. In der nahe gelegenen Bahnstation (ca. 600 m) haben wir das Parkaus für unsere Motorräder genutzt. Über Motel One bekommt man auf die 17 GBP für 24 h 20% Rabatt.
