Hotel was clean great location, good breakfast. ,nice lobby. I had wasps in room #502 My friends had rooms on level 3 Rooms very cold We.stayed 2 nights 18th -19th Sept one of the members has an illnes staff would not turn on heat and could not find him a heater. The other friends booked 2 single.beds they are not a couple. but were given a double staff said hotel.was.full and could not provide any solutions their stay was also 18-19 Sept.

21.09.2017

Room was spacious and the bed was comfortable, but other than a few small shelves and a few hangers, there was NO WHERE to put your stuff. More shelves or hooks, or a desk or table would have been nice, esp. for longer stays. My wish for many hotels: a dimmer or a nighlight for the bathroom at night.Staff was nice and the breakfast buffet was good, and the location is very convenient.

21.09.2017

Clean and stylish hotel, great location and friendly staff. I left my phone charger in the room and it was no trouble at all for them to post it to me the following day!

21.09.2017

Rooms are starting to look tired. Invest in carpets

20.09.2017

Brilliant location in the centre of the city.

20.09.2017

I was really happy with my stay. The hotel was modern and my room was really neat and beautiful. I was happy to find a hair dryer and the room had everything I needed. Breakfast was really good and overall this was great value for money.

20.09.2017

Positives....Great location, very quiet, nice bar, clean. Negative...lack of electrical outlets in the room and in the bathroom

20.09.2017

Had a great time at this Edinburgh hotel but asked at reception for a room with a view since this was a special occasion and we got a room looking straight into a wall not very nice. never used the hotel bar or had any meals at the property

19.09.2017

Perfect location, the staff was very nice and the room clean and spacious.

19.09.2017

This was our first time staying at Motel One and we would be very happy to stay there again or recommend it to others. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The staff were always friendly. It's in a great location very close to the station. Despite a lot of guests staying, it was nice and quiet. Great!

19.09.2017

Room was very cold ,no heating. Unable to watch television due to poor connection . Paid for room with a view,view consisted of looking out at people sitting on tour bus outside our window so we had to close curtains. Other than that good location,clean rooms,staff friendly & helpful

19.09.2017

if we can check in earlier it will be the best hotel

19.09.2017

Corridors and 3rd floor room were distinctly cold....no heating available in room as apparently the air con hadn't switched from summer mode?!? Replacement 7th floor room was much warmer. Nice hotel though!

19.09.2017

Great location, very happy with my room. Very handy for Edinburgh Waverley train station and just a few steps across the street to catch the airport bus which runs 24/7 Will book again.

19.09.2017

Great Location, great price, rooms are clean and have all you need for a couple nights stay in a City. Staff very polite.

19.09.2017

Overall good stay. Nothing particularly memorable but nothing wrong. Good for an overnight stay.

18.09.2017

Great staff. Room however had only two power sockets one at base of bed and one halfway down the outside of the bathroom wall which also had a pillar in front. Subsequently if you wanted to use kettle then it had to be on floor, not a wise place for boiling water, also if both phones needed charging at same time one had to swing with cable in as height was midway on wall. Secondly the A/C did not work at all. If problems were fixed it would rate a 9.

18.09.2017

Room clean and functional. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bed was very comfy. Aircon/heating wasn't very good. I found the room to be cold on arrival. When I tried to set the controls to a higher temperature, I just got a never-ending blast of cold air.

18.09.2017

Lovely comfortable and clean hotel with very friendly staff. Hotel very convenient and close to Waverly bridge where buses go frequently to the airport. I was not aware when I booked for breakfast that it was only continental however food was good.

18.09.2017

Loved the comfortable bees and the pillow was just why I had been looking for but have been unable to find. The only downside for me was trying to find the room.

17.09.2017

Lovely hotel, beautifully decorated and great location.

17.09.2017

Friendly, efficient, helpful, would highly recommend!

17.09.2017

Positives - Clean room. Good location. Simple but nice breakfast. Good bathroom and nice products. Negatives - damp showing through on ceiling of room. No ironing board. Small TV. You don't sell tomato juice. Poor wifi strength

17.09.2017

Perfect location, friendly staff throughout, quick check in, clean comfortable room. Stayed here many times & this hotel is always my first choice hotel in Edinburgh.

17.09.2017

We had a very small room that made it hard for us to move around in it. It was also nof as pictured on our booking form. The tea and kettle were no where near a power outlet. The window opened out onto an alley that was frequented all night by drunks, smokers and very chatty employees of your hotel. Someone actually hit the window at one stage! Lets just say that after a flight from Australia, you expect for the money we paid a full nights rest atleast! The breakfast was very welcome; a good nights sleep would have been better.

17.09.2017

Fantastic hotel, well priced, centrally placed in the city. Good food provision and excellent breakfast. Clean, quiet and very helpful staff. We will use this again and recommend it to all our friends.

16.09.2017

This was a lovely hotel. 1. The staff are top notch! 2. The bed and pillows were very nice. 3. The room was a nice size with lots of room for luggage. However another electrical outlet would be nice. Or an outlet to charge mobile phones/iPads etc. 4. Wifi worked at all times. Yea! 5. Centrally located. 6. Breakfast was pretty good. (I didn't see bread options for celiacs). 7. Value for amount paid was reasonable. The only negative was the maze we had to walk through to get to our room but it was understandable because of joining two buildings together. 8. The only real negative point is the window in our room did not block out the noise very well. I honestly checked a couple of times to make sure it was closed.

15.09.2017

Excellent hotel group, very efficient, good wifi, very friendly, could have done with more hangers, lack of plug sockets in room ( this is vey important these days with the amount of devices people have) over all I will stay with the hotel group again.

15.09.2017

The staff were very helpful - providing umbrellas for our rainy day walk about Edinburgh and storing our luggage between check-out and our train departure - and the room was comfortable. It took a bit of work to find our room each time since we were across in the second building, but being near to the side exit made going putt for adventures a breeze. The hotel is perfectly situated for touring about Edinburgh with easy access to the train station, airport shuttle, and many highlights of the city. We would definitely book here again!

15.09.2017

Internet connection drops off intermittently.Otherwise, excellent . Had requested for same room and management had ensured that on the three different bookings, I was given the same room. Excellent customer service.

15.09.2017

Lovely room. Pleasant staff. Great location but a bit pricey

14.09.2017

Fantastic location (2 minutes walk to Waverley rail station or the Royal Mile), great staff, nice buffet breakfast. Rooms are quiet and have secondary double glazing.

14.09.2017

We paid extra for a room with a view which looked over the city centre. Room was spacious and clean but bare bones which we knew when we booked. No phone, safe or fridge. Best part was its location at the bottom of the old town and just outside the train station and bus to airport.

14.09.2017

Comments to breakfast area, many of the tables and chairs are not suited for eating. Too small area for breakfast in such a large hotel. When we visited the bar, there were not enough wine glasses. The bar only had about 15 wine glasses in total.The bar man was very polite and helpfull. We missed a chest of drawers in the room, and no bed table. Too little coat hangers in our opinion.

14.09.2017

Room was on an outside wall by stepped street access used regularly in the evening by passers by - noisy and reduced privacy.

14.09.2017

Excellent hotel in a great location,staff were verry friendly and always happy to help.Would definitely stay there again.

13.09.2017

Excellent, does what it says on the tin. And a great location.

13.09.2017

Made the reservation by phone for a TWIN room reservation accepted. On arrival and signing in we had 2 elevators to negotiate and much walking over a GLASS BRIDGE and long and winding corridors. BTW Motel One does not, apparently, have room 640, according to the signage. On entry to the room it was a DOUBLE BEDDED room with no phone. A return hike to reception resulted in the news that Motel One do not have twin rooms, (why take my booking). However, I was offered either a single or a double duvet, I'm not sure how that works, because the bed does not separate. No I think that my review encapsulates my frustration and disappointment of MOTEL ONE.

13.09.2017

Alles Top

20.09.2017

Gewohnter guter Motel One Standard. Sauber und ruhig. Kein Schnickschnack. Für altere Paare und zusammen reisende Freunde wäre es aber sinnvoll auch Zweibettzimmer anzubieten.

20.09.2017

Tolles Hotel, sehr zentral, Personal sehr nett, Zimmer eher klein gehalten aber modern und sauber. Frühstücksbuffet war toll

19.09.2017

Grosser Minuspunkt war die nichtfuktionierende Heizung. Besser gesagt, die Klimaanlage, welche nicht auf heizen eingestellt war. Dies nicht etwa wegen eines Schadens, sondern weil aufgrund eines Management Entscheides die Heizfunktion nicht aktiviert war. Dies ist einfach nicht akzeptabel bei Aussentemperaturen von 8-12 Grad Celsius. Wir haben dies an der Rezeption jeden Tag wieder reklamiert. Aufenthalt vom 14.-17. September 2017.

19.09.2017

Das Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir haben eine grosszügige Frühstücksbox für den early departure erhalten. Die einzige Kritik sind die ungeheizten Zimmer. Man konnte sich da nicht aufhalten, ohne zu frieren... und der extrem schlechte Wlan Empfang.

18.09.2017

Meine Schwiegertochter und ich waren je in einem komfortablen Einzelzimmer untergebracht mit grossem Bett 4 verschiedenen Kissen, weich und härter, angenehme Matratze und einer schönen Douche. Man konnte sich Tee und Kaffee im Zimmer machen, was sehr angenehm ist.

17.09.2017

Zimmer und Bad sind sehr schön. Dieses Mal hatte ich als Fensteraussicht leider nur den Treppenaufgang zur Royal Mile. Sehr nette, freundliche und hilfsbereite Angestellte.

17.09.2017

Optimale Lage des Hotels. Die Zimmer oft zu kühl. Mir hat es nichts ausgemacht, meinen Mitreisenden schon. Gut wäre eine Steckdose für den Wasserkocher direkt am Tisch, auf dem der Wasserkocher steht, damit man nicht in der Nähe des Bettes den Wasserkocher anschließen muss. Die Freundlichkeit im gesamten Bereich des Hotels ist großartig. Hilfestellung wurde immer gegeben. Vielen Dank für den angenehmen Aufenthalt

16.09.2017

Sehr zentral gelegenes Motel One

14.09.2017

Ich habe alles sehr gebossen. Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet und auch das Personal stehts freundlich und hilfsbereit. Zudem war mein zimmer immer sauber.

14.09.2017

Immer wieder.

13.09.2017

Freundliches Servicepersonal, hilfsbereit, Zimmer mit Oberlichtern für einen kürzeren Hotelaufenthalt gut geeignet. Ansonsten empfehlen sich die Zimmer mit Fenster. Frühstück frisch und reichhaltig.
