Excellent location, design and atmosphere. The only slight niggle was the lack of air-con or fan in the room.

21.04.2015

Excellent location & could not fault the service. Would be first choice of place to stay on Edinburgh

21.04.2015

Always clean. Staff cheerful. Great value and great location

21.04.2015

Generally good experience. Clean and quiet rooms. At moments the wifi was interrupted/had periodic outages. Probably not in the hands of the hotel, but the roadworks in front of the hotel created an awfull lot of noise

21.04.2015

Really excellent hotel in fantastic location. Friendly staff. Modern room.

21.04.2015

Very small room. Very small bed for a double. Tv didn't work. Heating was erratic.

21.04.2015

Had a great time in Edinburgh but must say motel one was a very clean chilled out motel very nice staff helpful and would defo stay here again been telling friends already how nice the motel was

21.04.2015

Clean hotel, nice staff,bad WiFi and not enough plugs

20.04.2015

Motel One is a gorgeous hotel, great location and staff really friendly

20.04.2015

Very friendly staff, lovely and clean room, good breakfast, including gluten free options. Perfect location next to Edinburgh Waverley station and edinburgh castle, just a short walk up the hill.

19.04.2015

Unfortunately our stay coincided with road works immediately outside the Hotel. We accept that this was beyond the control of the Hotel Management but we are somewhat annoyed that we were charged more than the advertised "rooms from" rate at such a time and perhaps the rooms at that side should not have been offered. The machinery used to tarmac the road surface actually shook the room. This happened on two consecutive nights. Your records will show that this is the second occasion we have stayed at the Hotel in Market Street, Edinburgh and we would consider staying again however as we enjoy the Hotels location and cleanliness.

19.04.2015

The hotel was ok, pretty decent although nothing incredibly specials. I was very disappointed with the heating - the hotel uses hot air fans to heat the room and this is pretty noisy and rather odd to get used to. Also, the temperature inside is really odd too. It was acceptable during daytime but when I went to bed, I found myself waking up at 3am (although I was already covered with my duvet!!!) and freezing to death. I think they must stop it at night or something. Either way, this was really awful, I had to use both duvets as it was just too cold and this is something that should not happen in the middle of April. Had I gone with a friend I wouldn't even have had this option, as they would have been using the 2nd duvet. Also the duvets were quite tiny. More electric plugs would also be useful, I struggled with this as I had to juggle between the kettle and my various devices quite a bit. Otherwise the staff was quite friendly which raised the hotel's rating for me quite a bit. Also, overall the hotel didn't look bad, it looked modern, utilitarian and clean. It's just that the temperature and the constant noise from the fan hard to bear and it was difficult to get a good rest. Luckily I didn't have to spend a lot of time in the room.

19.04.2015

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at this motel. It's very modern. Rooms have double bed kettle with tea coffee etc and you can ask for more at reception. Television and hair dryer in all rooms xxxx it's a lovely hotel xx

18.04.2015

I was really tempded to give a bad feedback so people go there anymore so there's always rrom when I want to stay in the hotel ;-) Well this is just the perfect location for a weekend-trip to Edinburgh; right on the border between the new an the old town you can walk from here to everything interesting in the city and it's just across weaverly station where all the trains come in and the airlink bus to the airport stops. Of course it's not a five star hotel but it has everything you need and it looks fresh and new and everything is very clean. The rooms are rather small, but as I usually just sleep in the hotel I really don't care. The Lounge and Bar was open 24h for hotel guests which was perfect to have your final drink before you go to sleep. Well said that, the only thing I would complain about: they have only bottled beer and no tap at the bar - so my last drink was always whiskey ;-)

17.04.2015

We had a great stay and the staff and rooms were excellent. However, I was a bit puzzled once I thought about it as there was a 20 Euro surcharge on the rooms for Six Nations Rugby but the last match was at the end of March and our stay was the 13th and 14th of April?

17.04.2015

The hotel was very central, clean and staff were very friendly. My room was very small but well designed so that I contained everything that I needed. There was major road works going on through the night while I was staying there which meant that I didn't sleep well at all, but I understand that this was beyond the control of the hotel staff.

16.04.2015

Although this hotel is basically the same as the one in Princes Street, the staff were not as friendly and helpful and I would in future stay in Princes Street. I have now discovered a really good breakfast place so although I paid for the continental at this hotel, I did not eat there - lesson learnt!

15.04.2015

Unfortunately WiFi was extremly unstabled during our stay, sometimes there was no connection to the WiFi or the internet at all. Nevertheless, it was a great stay at this place - Thanks!

15.04.2015

Clean, comfortable and modern without losing the charm of the area

15.04.2015

A great location as well as a nice hotel. Some people in your staff were extremely customer friendly. Found it silly that the bar showed a drinks menu with drinks they didn't make. Beds a bit stiff to sleep in. Nice touch with European plugs in the room.

15.04.2015

Excellent - friendly, helpful staff, nice clean rooms, good breakfast - all for a good price (most important).

15.04.2015

I am quite critical usually but this hotel is really very good. The location is perfect, the room was very nice and perfectly clean, the view from the window was amazing and the staff was very friendly.

14.04.2015

Location great but staff abrupt and rather rude RE payment informing my friend she had to pay for all 3 rooms despite different credit cards securing each room as we were all arriving at different times.. No information given on check in RE bar, breakfast,check out times etc. Bar staff a joke...never anyone there, sooooooooo slow, took him 20 minutes to make 2 mojitos for the woman in front of us so we went to the pub instead. Unable to give us a jug of water for room.Rooms extremely basic but clean and good shower in bathroom but so small you could wash your hands in basin whilst sitting on the loo. We had a triple so plenty of space but the normal 2 pax rooms were absolutely tiny!!

14.04.2015

I stayed at Motel One with my daughter two weeks ago. The hotel facilities are excellent and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Edinburgh.

14.04.2015

Great overall service and location although the room we had (330) was very small.

14.04.2015

Everything all right except wifi

14.04.2015

The hotel was clean and friendly. We did however find the rooms very hot during the night time and the thermostat did not appear to work. Therefore we had to open the big window to get some air through. On our first night there was a TV or music playing rather loudly until the early hours of the morning making it difficult to get to sleep. On our second night we again had to open the window but luckily this time all was quiet. The shower was very nice and the bedroom suitable for our short stay. We did find it rather odd that there was no plug at a suitable height to plug the kettle into without having to place it on one of the material covered stools in the bedroom. However we managed to boil it successfully without any harm done. The hotel is well located for the airport bus and central tourist attractions.

13.04.2015

Motel one provides the basics you need in clean tidy surroundings. Fantastic location looking out over Princes Street and the gardens. 30seconds walk from the airport bus.

12.04.2015

The hotel was lovely and clean and we'll maintained. Unfortunately we found the beds very uncomfortable and the pillow was useless. My partner woke on our second morning with pain shooting out his neck and shoulder and needed to go to boots for heat patches. On our final morning, he woke at 4am from.the pain and we needed to get nurofen for the pain. The hotel was great but we wouldn't stay there again over the beds!!

12.04.2015

This was my first stay in Motel One. The whole experience was so good that I quickly decided that I wanted to spend my second working week there too. Not only that, but I have now just booked a weekend stay in a month's time for my husband and myself -but no work involved this time as I want to enjoy everything that the hotel has to offer, especially the inviting bar and public area.

12.04.2015

Beautiful building.. Fabulous location! Perfect for touring and having so much on your door step!

12.04.2015

Perfect location, spacious room, good service, clean, friendly and good price. Definitively will use it again. Only minus was that it was almost impossible to use the kettle as the electrical points were to high in the wall and basically had to hold the kettle in my hands.

11.04.2015

Great spot! Very clean ! Comfy beds. Atmosphere great !! Would definitely recommended to everyone !! Top one !!

11.04.2015

Excellent value for location. Room was a good size and very comfortable with great views of princes St. Would have been nice to have a fridge in the room but at these rates I'm not complaining. Staff friendly and helpful.

09.04.2015

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

09.04.2015

I had booked for a double room 2 instead 2 single beds pushed together with a big gap down the middle and single duvets. Also there was a walk way that looked straight in our room air conditioning didn't work properly either the only good thing I liked was the location and also the selection of whisky ik the bar to which we had left the pub early to come and sit in the bar for a while and it was closed before midnight so it was to late to go else where so just went to our room.

09.04.2015

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped.Breakfast was excellent.

08.04.2015

Excellent hotel very central location,near waverly station and Edin.Dangun,but no fridge and bad wifi over the 4 days of my stay at hotel

08.04.2015

Very clean hotel. Helpful staff. Can't fault anywhere.

08.04.2015

Location amazing, hotel very neat, tidy and clean, only down side was where our room was, as our window, which you could not see out of as it was so high and against a passage, must have been side onto a busy street, hence every drunken lout that passed it singing or shouting/talking you had in stereo - all in all tho, a great wee hotel and recommended for a one or 2 nighter

08.04.2015

Arrived Easter Sat for 2 nights. reception was busy but staff were excellent. We were central to everything - princes st just across the bridge and royal mile a 2 minute walk uphill. Room was quirky, clean, big, lovely decor. We had three large old style windows- beautiful overlooking the park between us and princes st. No noise encountered at night time. Only tiny prob was I booked a double room and we had two single beds pushed together with seperate blankets. The view was so good that I wasn't interested in requesting a different room. Room had tea making facilities, hair dryer, tv Bathroom was v pleasant- clean, spacious with double shower and seemed newly refurbished. Would def stay here again No experience of food/drinks as we had room only offer and went out and about on the evenings

08.04.2015

Could not fault the staff . Very helpful and clean hotel . xx

20.04.2015

Raum 322 in Edinburgh ist nicht zu empfehlen. Zimmer hat das Feeling von einer Gefängniszelle. Kleines Fenster oben an der Wand, das in eine Unterführung sehen lässt. Um rauszuschauen, muss man aber erst auf einen Stuhl klettern. Sonst ausserhalb des Zimmers war es ganz nett.

16.04.2015

Leider befand sich am Tag unserer Übernachtung eine Nachtbaustelle direkt vor der Haustür. Zudem fand sich in einem der zwei gebuchten Zimmer mit Aussicht ein stechender Gestank nach Kleber oder geschmolzenem Plastik, der auch durch Fensterlüftung und Klimaanlage nicht zu beseitigen war. Als alternatives Zimmer konnte nur ein Zimmer direkt neben den Aufzügen und dem Treppenhaus und mit "Ausblick" auf den Hinterhof angeboten werden. Die Lage ist aber super-zentral.

15.04.2015

Sauber, zentral, freundlicher Empfang

15.04.2015

Das Hotel liegt super gut, man kann alles zu Fuss erreichen. Frühstückangebot ist gut. Die Sitzmöglichkeiten sind leider nicht so gut. Man sitzt teilweise auf Hockern und an sehr niedrigen und kleinen Tischen.

12.04.2015

super Lage in Edinburgh, so dass sämtliche Sehenswürdigkeiten sehr fußläufig erreichbar sind Zimmer typisch Motel One und alles was man für einen Städtetrip braucht Für mich die einzigen Abzüge bei der Rezeption: zum Teil lange Wartzeiten und dann hatte ich nicht bei jedem Mitarbeiter das wärmste Gefühl. Aber wenn es nur das ist, kann ich damit sehr gut leben

11.04.2015

Perfekte Lage, superfreundliches Personal

09.04.2015

Exzellente Lage mitten in der Stadt, ansprechende Einrichtung, sehr gute Preis-Leistung

09.04.2015

Alles in Ordnung. Die Lage ist perfekt, die Zimmer sauber, auf das Frühstück freut man sich und das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das eine Mitarbeiterin in Deutschland geboren wurde und uns daher einiges auf Deutsch erläutern konnte war sehr hilfreich.
