Location and surroundings
Welcome to the Scottish Highlands
Whisky, sheep, tartan – at our Motel One Edinburgh-Royal you’re at home within walls dating from the 16th and 18th centuries. We’ve combined rustic Scottish cosiness with modern design using the finest materials. Our One Bar serves genuine single malts amongst design scattered with creamy sheepskins, a cosy gas fire and our rustic tables made of old whisky barrels. Even the familiar egg-chair has been upholstered in a tartan designed specially for Motel One. Grazing sheep by the coffee machine and a silhouette of the skyline featuring the hotel itself complete this authentic design. As always, you can look forward to a healthy breakfast, cosy beds and free WiFi.
This Design Hotel is just a few blocks away from the illustrious Royal Mile and is part of the Old Town, listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Thanks to its central location, this affordable Design Hotel is a perfect base for exploring the city on foot. Stride down the Royal Mile, and dive into local history in the National Museum of Scotland. Even if you’re here for a business meeting at the nearby Edinburgh International Conference Centre, the city is compact enough that you’re sure to have time for a look around. Round off your day in the cosy atmosphere of our Design Hotel’s comfortable One Lounge, amongst elegant designer furniture.
