it wasn't your fault but I was booked into the wrong one by my booking agency so I didn't feel good about going there. It was annoying to have to drag my stuff up the stairs to the reception which was miles from the front door. The lift was very slow and there was only one that stopped at reception - very confusing. I was given a boiling hot room on a floor smelling of paint with wet paint signs everywhere plus people were looking at me from office opposite when I got into the room so I had to go back down to reception to swap. Reception were very nice and helpful and sorted it out for me. The second room was tiny with a single bed but at least it was cooler. It was a bit of a rabbit warren but it was basically the same as the other Motel 1 where I usually stay so I knew how the rest worked.

21.05.2015

Immaculately clean room - the only thing I would say is that there should have been a socket to plug the kettle in a safe place, as it was I had to place the kettle on a stool to reach the socket! The breakfast was excellent - superior to breakfasts I have experienced in 5 star hotels. Friendly capable staff.

20.05.2015

V good great location staff v helpful wud def stay again!!!

20.05.2015

Lovely hotel with a fab location. Room was pretty small but nice. Bathroom was lovely. Had difficulty finding the electricity sockets, there was one mid way up the wall for the hairdrier etc but not next to the mirror or dressing table but because the room was small this didn't really matter. Couldnt find one for the kettle as couldn't use the high up one as kettle cable wasnt long enough. eventually found it in the morning camouflaged into the wall by the side of the bed, so got a cup of tea eventually. All in all nice hotel in great location and definitely value for money. Did not try the breakfast.

19.05.2015

I found your staff to be helpful and friendly, as ever, and even bumped into Claudia in the corridor, who remembered me and was very chatty and helpful. The whole hotel is very clean and spacious. It is just great. There is a problem though - I think these reviews I give are too positive, and are helping you increase your prices! I think you need to start giving me special rates!!! That is why I am putting just "8" for value for money! Really it should be "10" as everything is excellent! Thank you Motel One!

19.05.2015

I think adequate covers it. The location makes it that. For me, the rooms with no windows and no way to get any air into them are a massive no no, no matter what the supposed 'cheap' price.

19.05.2015

I was staying 4 nights and I was in a room that was in a separate building and a long walk to breakfast and the reception area, it seems to me that these rooms would be better for people staying only one night and as I was a repeat visiter and staying multiple nights I think placing me in a better located room would make good business sense.

19.05.2015

Really good but some really stupid and very frustrating things let it down badly - you have clearly put a lot of effort into it but 10 little things really let it down - they probably seem petty but they aren't as they just take the edge of what should be brilliant !! We would recommend the hotel but not without some reservations 1. Poor quality Uncomfortable pillows (but great mattress!!) 2. No bedside tables - annoying 3. Small cheap towels - cheap! 4. No mirror de mister made it hard to shave 5. No plug in sink!! Just ridiculous 6. No hand Soap? Again ridiculous 7. No Shower cap meant my wife couldn't have a decent shower - annoying 8. Badly designed bedside lights - annoying 9. No waste paper basket - annoying 10. No plug sockets where needed! Stupid!! Really Great things are; 1. Amazing location 2. Nice bar 3. Really Nice staff 4. Quite Cool decor 5. Large room 6. Very clean and fresh 7. Comfortable bed

19.05.2015

modern, clean, comfortable accommodation very convenient to all major attractions in the city

19.05.2015

Very sadly I wright this review as the hotel is very nice and clean as well But we had a very uncomfortable night as the room was like a oven the outside temperature was very low but the heating in the room was ridiculous we turned down the thermostat to its lowest and still the room was like a oven the window only opened a inch or two When we told the receptionist she replied o'well Il tell a maintenance person and that was it?? So great hotel but complete uninterested service

18.05.2015

This was my fourth stay at this hotel - which much mean that I like it! It has all the basics covered - good bed, good shower, it's clean and comfortable and has a good location. Best of all the staff are friendly and helpful. I'd happily stay again.

18.05.2015

Room with a view on the 5th floor was of Waverley train station! Didn't like the single quilts in the double room. Not big enough and I was cold. No instructions for the heating/aircon. Lack of sockets for phone charging etc Otherwise very clean and good location. Staff were lovely. Very helpful.

17.05.2015

Spotlessly clean and very central but Wifi very slow and table for jug and cups very tiny with very little room for a lap top as well.

17.05.2015

Great value for money. Staff were excellent. Nothing was to much trouble. Cloe looked after me at reception . Lovely warm welcoming smile and very professional. Hotel is very well situated and great for the bus connection to the airport and train links. Room was perfect clean , new and also had shower gel which on reviews I had read they stated no shower gel was provided. I will defiantly recommend this hotel and will stay here when I next visit Edinburgh.

17.05.2015

Pleasant stay . Room and bathroom very clean. Train Station and City Center nearby. Would definitely use again.

17.05.2015

The staff were super friendly but the rooms were very small. Wifi was a bit hit and miss depending on the time of day.

17.05.2015

Service was prompt and efficient. The rooms were clean. Good value for the location.

17.05.2015

Perfect location, good value, friendly service

17.05.2015

The hotel is nice. Location is excellent. I do not like single beds pushed together and one comforter for each. The price is very high compared to other hotels in UK and Europe. There are no phones in the room and a difficult wake up process to access. There are no suitcase racks and inadequate space to hang clothing. For the high price of the room I would think that something besides instant coffee could be provided.

16.05.2015

Clean comfortable and friendly staff. Excellent

15.05.2015

The room was clean and spacious, staff were helpful and the breakfast was good. There were a few finishing touches missing, which is partly to be expected due to the comparatively low cost of the room - however, I was surprised that there was not hand soap available in the rooms and feel that this is a basic that could have been included, as it is in many similarly pitched 'budget' hotels.

14.05.2015

i 'll like the same holidays in your hotel for the next time that I will come in Edinburg

14.05.2015

the hotel was in a good location close to all Edinburgh had to offer. It was clean ,modern and bright. We would definitely stay there again or any other hotels in the group in other locations.

13.05.2015

Excellent budget hotel. Very modern, clean, pleasant staff and in a great location. Only two things to comment on to improve - the lighting in the room could be better and the electricity plugs were badly situated, ie not next to table and kettle.

13.05.2015

We didn't know how to turn off the light at night time which was a little annoying... The 2 lamps hanging by the bed is what I'm referring to. For £104 that we paid it would have been nice for breakfast to be included into that. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and the bathroom was really nice. The staff were really polite. The location of your hotel is perfect and easy to locate especially if travelling by train. Thank you for a lovely stay.

12.05.2015

Excellent location. Comfortable room. Opening windows! Great shower in nice bathroom. Friendly and very efficient reception staff.

12.05.2015

Very clean Friendly staff comfy bed gorgeous design very close to the pictures on the website defiantly stay again The location is amazing! right next to everything

12.05.2015

Centrally located. Staff very friendly and helpful, good breakfast - nothing to put a finger on, just good value for money.

12.05.2015

We stayed two nights in the Motel one in Edinburgh. We were so impressed with the check in and found all the girls in reception to be do helpful and friendly. The hotel was in an excellent location, and the decor was so nice, I would describe it as modern traditional. We got off the airport bus and the Hotel was standing there to our left. Approx 30 seconds away! The room was lovely and clean and the bathroom was modern and the shower was amazing. We were extremely disappointed that the room had no safe, we felt bothered that we had no where to store our cash and passports. I would say that our stay here was near perfect. I certainly would stay here again next time and if anyone asks I would highly recommend it. We will be back!!

12.05.2015

Very clean. Bed ok, not especially comfy. Internet was not working and they could not help us. I tried to tell them that the connection in the room would be to weak and that we are kicked out every 10 seconds but apparently there was no solution for that...

12.05.2015

Room 511 was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast staff exceptionally welcoming and helpful

12.05.2015

Good accommodation. Would stay again. However a couple of minor irritations: not enough hooks in bathroom. No heating in bathroom. Changed towels every day with no apparent opt out mechanism. Room we had was a very long, rabbit warren like walk from reception. Nonetheless Motel One is a slick professional operation.

12.05.2015

Great location, friendly staff and very comfortable.

12.05.2015

Very clean! It was not just a standard hotel. All Staff were lovely not just the receptionist.

12.05.2015

Brilliant, staff at breakfast couldn't do enough to make sure you had everything for breakfast meal. Breakfast what was available was lovely too different kinds of pastries, yoghurts etc. and drinks. Always plenty for everyone never short on food. bedroom was great. Clean and big and plenty of space for clothes with hanging and shelves. Bathroom was brilliant too loved the shower. Room service for tidy bedroom was great too. It was really nice to have wash and shampoo products and drinks available in room. Staff were welcoming and direct when we first came. And during our stay staff always said good morning, good afternoon, or hello when they saw us very polite and made at ease. I loved the idea there was a room to put luggage after you left your room but wasn't traveling til late afternoon so could leave it in hotel while you plan your last day before travelling by train.

11.05.2015

It couldn't have been better. Clean, tidy, happy place and so central, just where I needed to be. I had to leave earlier than planned and the desk staff were very helpful in getting my refund. Excellent place to stay.

11.05.2015

It was a really stay for me and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and that there was never a sign of stress or hassle for me. The only negative point I could think of would be, that i couldn't trust if the water from the sink was drinkable or not. I wanted to cook a tea but it tasted very strange and I wasn't sure about the water. Also if you flushed the toilet, there was a high risk of making your trousers wet, because of overspilling water.

11.05.2015

I needed a larger table top to be able to work in the evening. The one provided in the room was not large enough to accommodate both the laptop and the papers that I needed to refer to.

11.05.2015

Great staff in both locations in Edinburgh which caused some confusion but no problems

11.05.2015

This motel delivered exactly what was promised, a great location at an affordable price. If I ever visit Edinburgh again I will certainly consider staying here again.

10.05.2015

The motel is a great concept, smartly executed, with very nice staff to boot! Good location, really convenient, and a high standard of cleanliness and customer service. I will return (again!).

09.05.2015

Very good service at a top location in Edinburgh!!!!

21.05.2015

Das Zimmer in der 5 Etage war sehr dunkel.

20.05.2015

Überaus freundliches und hilfsbereits Personal, tolle, zentrale Lage, absolut sauber, sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für britische Verhältnisse.

18.05.2015

Ein schönes Zimmmer! Alles so, wie erwartet! Das Frühstück fand ich zu teuer, das haben wir nicht genutzt.

13.05.2015

Auch das Motel One "Edinburgh Royal" zeigt die gewohnte Qualität dieser Hotelkette. Besonders gefallen hat uns die zentrale Lage am Rande der Altstadt und das große Zimmer auf der obersten Etage, das jedoch nur gegen Aufpreis zu erhalten ist. Weniger angenehm war dieses Mal der Feueralarm in der Nacht vom 2. auf den 3. Mai, der sich im Laufe der Nacht sechsmal wiederholte und der die Unternehmungen des folgenden Tages doch erheblich beeinträchtigte. Wir warten noch immer auf eine Kompensation irgendeiner Art.

12.05.2015

Die Lage des Hotels ist super! Wir haben alles zu Fuß in Edinburgh erreicht, was wir sehen wollten. Ein Wunsch zur Verbesserung: Seife auf den Zimmer. Zum Händewaschen find' ich Duschgel nicht so prickelnd. Wir haben zweimal im Hotel gefrühstückt. Das Frühstück war ok, entsprechend der Hotelkategorie. Die MitarbeiterInnen waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das ideale Hotel für ein Städtetrip.

12.05.2015

Zimmer sind nett und sauber, Personal ist bemüht. Beim Frühstück hätten wir uns ein bisschen mehr lokale Spezialitäten gewünscht, aber die Auswahl war gut.

10.05.2015

Freundliches personal, angenehmes, sauberes zimmer, reichhaltiges frühstück, sehr gute lage. Leider schrillte in einer nacht um 01.30 uhr fälschlicherweise der feueralarm und alle gäste mussten im pyjama raus in die kälte. Das kann ja mal passieren, aber dass der alarm dann die ganze nacht immer wieder losging und man kein auge zumachen konnte, war sehr ärgerlich, zumal es am morgen danach nur "sorry" hieß. Für 130 euro die nacht unfreiwillig durchgemacht, da hätte man auch für 25 euro in ein youth hostel einchecken können.

10.05.2015

Sehr gute zentrale Lage ("Grenze" Neustadt / Altstadt). Leider war der nahe gelegene Bahnhof nicht zu überhören.
