It is the second time we have stayed at Motel One, Edinburgh. It is a very professional, friendly place to stay. Staff very welcoming. Good choice of food for breakfast.

26.08.2016

Bathroom door was a big problem banging and very noisy. The room was very basic . No place to deposit anything. Nice breakfast. Nice and helpful staff.

26.08.2016

Central location with pleasant views and not too loud.

25.08.2016

Good position, friendly staff, lovely and comfort room

25.08.2016

Excellent Motel and excellen location. It is my 3rd time staying at Motel One. Majority of staff were excellent except for one staff who did not appeared to be very helpful. Honesty of the housekeeping staff as I left my wedding ring in the room after checking out and realised that I left it in the room . Contacted the Motel and was informed that they had the ring. A box of tissues in the room would be greatly appreciated. Only problem that I had for this visit was the wifi. At times, it was unable to connect. Overall, a nice place to stay with the friendly staff .

25.08.2016

Each time I have stayed, the service and facilities could not have been better. The staff are very friendly and efficient. There was nothing to improve on as it was another fantastic stay. Thanks!

25.08.2016

A bit noisy but great views

25.08.2016

Room without window, roof light had blind but was stuck shut. Poor/no air conditioning meant a very hot unpleasant place to be. Have stayed many times before (and will return) but the windowless room 633 is not suitable

24.08.2016

The third time we have stayed while visiting the Fringe Festival and excellent as always. For a budget hotel, one couldn't ask for more. The rooms are well designed, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. And the location is superb

24.08.2016

As Edinburgh Festival goers each year Motel ONE is ideally located for the Festival. As detailed below the scores are high. We did not use the bar and lounge. We did not have breakfast on any day of our 5 night stay. The choices did not suit us as Dieters, most of the choices we would of not eaten due to them being very calorie dense thus the breakfast becomes poor value. We understand the increase in rates in August thus for us the Hotel comes a low 5 for value for money but outside that time the rates look reasonable. As showers go the ones here are good and easy to regulate the temperature and flow.

24.08.2016

On arrival we were seen at reception straight away. room was very clean and adequate for our short stay. hotel ideally situated in the middle of edingburh, and at the side of the trainstation.

24.08.2016

Excellent!

23.08.2016

We stayed here recently while in Scotland for a friend's wedding and were very pleased with our experience! Our room was spacious and had a great view of the city! The staff was very courteous and helpful throughout our stay. It's conveniently located for using public transportation and a quick and easy walk up to the Royal Mile and experience some of the Fringe Festival!

23.08.2016

Excellent stay. Very nice, clean and modern hotel. Great central location for all the Edinburgh sighted. Would well recommend staying at this hotel and would book again.

23.08.2016

Great location and clean, comfortable room.

23.08.2016

Returning customer and we enjoyed our stay but you need to address the ventilation issues. We stayed in 640 think it was with no window or any ventilation. There was a portable fan in the room and no wonder as it was extremely warm and very difficult to sleep. Your need to provide proper air con or some decent ventilation for the summer months.

23.08.2016

Enjoyable stay, very central location, immaculate rooms.helpful and friendly staff. Would have liked a hot breakfast option even if it was porridge this being Scotland and all! Because this was not available we opted not to have breakfast at the hotel but ate out.

23.08.2016

Second time staying at this Motel One, again location is a big plus, rooms spotless, all staff very friendly and the breakfast for me

23.08.2016

Everything was organised, easy and very accommodating. The only negative is that there being no phone in the room meant we had to go to reception to order a taxi and get an iron and ironing board.

23.08.2016

We always stay at Motel One, staff are very friendly, rooms always very clean. It is in an ideal position - midway between the New and the Old Town, also near to Waverley Station. Would not stay anywhere other than Motel One in Edinburgh.

22.08.2016

The staff were all friendly & very helpful. Our room was clean & tidy. The breakfast was really good with lots of choice. I would definitely stay again.

22.08.2016

This was our third stay and it won't be the last. The room was spotlessly clean and large with a fabulous view and ready well ahead of time, Check in was quick and easy and the staff unfailingly polite. The only very minor quibble I have is that I would love the bath towels to be a bit bigger!

22.08.2016

I have been in 2 different rolms: one with views, and another in the adjoining building. Both were comfortable and clean, but the second one was a bit dark and a mechanical sound was listened all the time.

22.08.2016

I know the chain, and everything was great except one major point of criticism: We had a "no view" room, which is described in the small print on the website, as a room with a "roof-top window" or a view to the adjoining building. The roof-top window of our room was relatively small, and the blinds on that "window" in our room couldn't be opened, so it was very dark and it felt claustrophobic. There was a sign next to the remote control for the blinds with apologies, that was all. We weren't told about this at the reception. In my view, it's not acceptable to rent out a room with no daylight at such a price (160 pounds), taking advantage of fully-booked hotels during the festival week and the fact that we were staying only for one night. I didn't even mind the long hike to the other part of the building (600 rooms), but a room without no day light is not acceptable, at least for that price!

21.08.2016

Location : Superb. Staff: First class Rooms: Ideal Price Competitive Breakfast: Excellent We'll be back!

21.08.2016

Great location, great service, clean and freshly decorated. Bar 24/7

21.08.2016

Motel One is in an excellent location for the the Edinburgh Festival. And excellent value compared with other hotels in the centre of Edinburgh. It has become our regular place to stay for the Fringe. Always a friendly welcome.

21.08.2016

The hotel is in a handy location, next to Waverley Station and below the Royal Mile. The rooms are comfortable and clean but lack power points for the kettle and hairdryer which are provided - one only in an awkward place. Prices are high during the festival - as everywhere else in Edinburgh is at this time. Had it been a bit cheaper I would have stayed an extra night.

21.08.2016

Another nice stay thank you. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. Lovely shower. Friendly staff and great location. Loved the toiletry products in the bathroom, mint shower wash and lindenflower hand wash. Can I buy them?! A tiny niggle was that there was no socket next to the table where the kettle and cups etc were, so we had to move it to the other side of the room to boil!

21.08.2016

Great location and accommodation. Staff are extremely friendly and willing to do whatever they can to make your stay the best it can be.

21.08.2016

Our stay at Motel One Royal Edinburgh was a very pleasant experience. The room was 'no frills' but offered all the facilities we required. The hotel is well decorated, clean and well organised. The reception staff were very professional, helpful and friendly. Everybody was always willing to assist in anyway they could.

21.08.2016

Location was perfect. The room was modern and very clean. Only grumble was the wait at the the bar, they only had 1 member of staff working who was doing other things which meant that they wasn't anyone working the bar, which did result in people walking away

21.08.2016

Excellent location - our room gave us wonderful views of the city. A walk from Wavverley Station and close to the city. The staff were friendly , helpful and welcoming. Brilliant breakfast with the best tasting gluten free bread ever!!! Locally sourced.. Parts of the hotel looked a bit tired - so it needs a bit of a refub - and better pillows but the new loos on level one were amazing!!! All in all the hotel made our trip fantastic ( and of course great weather helped)

21.08.2016

The cost of a room, approximately £150 per night, meant that I paid a top end rate for a budget hotel room.

20.08.2016

We had another wonderful stay at Motel One. The room had windows which opened, excellent double glazing and good air con and light tight curtains. Beds are really comfortable and bathrooms clean and all appliances are of an excellent quality.The only negatives are that there was no plug point by the kettle which meant putting the kettle on the floor and no way of filling the sink as it did not have a plug. It wasn't missing - it just didn't have that facility. All the staff were friendly and efficient.

20.08.2016

Overall very good and location very handy for us. Could have had a bedside shelf or table but it was a very basic room. Would stay again and if not during festival it is cheaper!

20.08.2016

Great location , lovely interior, staff really friendly and helpfull, room large and with nice view. I arrived early, pre cheek in time, and got a room anyway. Lots of attention on my mojito in the bar too. Great stay for a good place

19.08.2016

Great welcome by the staff, comfortable room (although no windows!) Very good breakfast

19.08.2016

While my wife has visited before, this was my first visit. We booked because of my wife's previous experience of the hotel, which was very positive. Staff were very helpful, not just at Reception but also the Housekeeping staff and bar staff. Our first room 201 was very nice and was spacious, as well as being well equipped and clean. Our problem with it was the noise caused to it being adjacent to the staff doors on floor 2. These were obviously very heavy and had no kind of soft-close fitting because they closed with a loud bang each time. While this wasn't a problem during the day, early in the morning as staff began to go about their work or in the night as something needed to be fetched, the banging seriously disturbed our sleep. We requested a change of room which was arranged politely, very efficiently and without any problem by Reception. The move was made as easy as possible for us and we really appreciated this. While the new room (630) was much smaller, we did have a good nights sleep.

19.08.2016

situated in the old town centre - friendly and welcoming staff - rooms were clean and modern - price high compared to size of room and taking into account that there was only a roof window and breakfast not included - but obviously you pay for the location and time of the year (Festival time) breakfast was OK

19.08.2016

Although your staff and welcoming and helpful, they weren't able to help when I needed someone to manage a problem and that's disappointing. I was in room 619 so right beside the elevators and all through the night, its wasn't the noise of the elevators but the announcer "doors closing, doors opening, etc" that kept me awake and subsequently, I had a terrible nights sleep. I phoned to reception a number of times only for the phone to ring out so had to get dressed and go downstairs to ask for assistance but they were unable to help, even though I know the noise can be turned down. It was very much an attitude of "too difficult to fix, deal with it", in the morning when checking out, it was exactly the same. My employer is increasingly using Motel One but I would have to consider my options were I made to stay here again as my only experience has left a black cloud.

super Zimmer, sehr nettes Personal, Frühstücksraum verbesserungswürdig, Lage optimal wir hatten eine super Zeit...... Grüsse Susanne

24.08.2016

Reception arbeitet sehr speditiv und organisiert Teilweise keine freien Tische beim Frühstück weil nicht abgeräumt wurde.

24.08.2016

Sauberkeit vor dem Hotel (Aschenbecher) verbesserungswuerdig

23.08.2016

Positiv überrascht war ich von der zentralen Lage. Diese ist unschlagbar. Direkt an der Flughafenbuslinie. Gegenüber kann man Ausflüge buchen. Sehr sehr zentral. Alles im kurzen Gehbereich- Entertainment, Shopping, Lokale usw. . Personal wie immer im Motel One sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit (Wegbeschreibung, Heizlüfter usw). Enttäuscht war ich vom Blick aus dem Zimmer - Blick direkt auf eine Wand. Fenster konnte man nicht öffnen. Für den Preis von ca. 200 Euro pro Nacht und Zimmer hätte ich mir einen besseren Ausblick gewünscht. Zimmer wie bei Motel One üblich, etwas spartanisch ausgestattet was die Ablagemöglichkeiten angeht. Aber für zwei Personen und einen kurzen Aufenthalt ausreichend. TV ok. Gibt sogar deutsche Programme. Bad klein aber zweckmässig. Schöne Dusche. Leider keine Steckdose im Bad. Insgesamt sehr zu empfehlen, vor allen Dingen wg. der unschlagbaren zentralen Lage.

23.08.2016

Wir haben uns im Hotel sehr wohl gefühlt.Die Lage ist super.Man kann alles superschnell erreichen.Das Personal war jederzeit sehr freundlich.Kann das Hotel weiterempfehlen.Wir werden wiederkommen.

23.08.2016

Angenehmer Empfang, freundliche Mitarbeiter. Leider waren oft störende Geräusche zu hören, zum Teil durch die Lage des Zimmers neben dem Wäsche- und Putzmittelraum. Dadurch war der Arbeitsbeginn der Mitarbeiterin nicht zu überhören.

23.08.2016

Im Bad Farbabblättern oberhalb Fenster

21.08.2016

Aufenthalt während Fringe Festival, 180€ die Nacht ohne Frühstück ist zu teuer. Lage und sonstiges sind wie von Motel One gewohnt super. Geruch im Zimmer nach Weichmachern war unschön.

21.08.2016

Bereits zum dritten Mal Gast im MO Edinburgh-Royal gewesen. Personal erstklassig, hilfsbereit, freundlich. Lage unschlagbar. Nächstes Jahr wieder!
