Lovely hotel, beautifully decorated and great location.

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

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

Friendly, efficient, helpful, would highly recommend!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

13.09.2017

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

13.09.2017

This is our second stay at Motel One, everything from booking, checking in and checking out was easy and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Everything you need is on hand, the hotel is in a perfect location. The room was very clean and the bed was so comfy after a hard day's sightseeing . Will definitely be staying here on our next visit.

13.09.2017

Alles Top

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.

12.09.2017

Nice hotel in a very convenient spot 2 minutes from Waverley Station. Good sized room with high ceiling, nice and airy. Only downside was the extra single bed which was actually a folding chair with very little padding. Ok For a child for one night but could have been better. Would definitely use this hotel again.again.

12.09.2017

Snack Menu was rather limited.

12.09.2017

The location is perfect for anything in central Edinburgh. It's across the street from the Waverley Train Station and just down the hill from the Royal Mile and all the must-do sites. Access is easy (don't know about parking though), bathroom was well laid out, room spacious and clean, and view up the nearby steps and close was great. Breakfast was not included.

12.09.2017

Excellent location, spacious and comfortable room. We will definitely return here on future trips to Edinburgh.

11.09.2017

Spotless rooms, very helpful staff & perfect location says it all.

11.09.2017

Great service, and great rooms for the price. I really appreciated the bar/food that was available late at night. The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful in offering us suggestions.

11.09.2017

The locality was great. The staff were all helpful and friendly. I liked the room and it was good for my purposes. I would have liked to be told when booking that the accommodation and price varies.

11.09.2017

the hotel is in a great location (near the Old Town and close to the airport bus). Friendly staff. Very clean rooms

10.09.2017

welcoming, cheerful, clean, comfortable, great value

10.09.2017

Great location. Clean room, and staff very professional and accommodating. Good value.

10.09.2017

Paid for a basic room so had a view of a pub storage shed! Due to this, there was noise at night Not enough plug sockets, most of them are high up with now shelves near them Kettle on a table - no plug! Had to move kettle close to bed to have a hot drink Sharp metal catch on the bathroom door. Advised hotel and it was dealt with Comfortable bed Pleasant and friendly staff Very central location and next to the station Would stay elsewhere as this hotel was also £100 a night - expensive for what you get. I've stayed all over the UK and abroad so I know what I'm talking about.

09.09.2017

Only one socket in room and no where near the kettle! Otherwise, great bathroom, comfortable bed, good breakfast choices and excellent staff. Would definitely stay again.

09.09.2017

Great central location near station, buses, shops and castle yet still very quiet. Very clean, modern good quality décor, good hot shower and very friendly staff. Wifi poor, no plug in the sink and our room had no view which might be an issue for some. Disappointed that the bar had no real ale, only bottles.

08.09.2017

This is an excellent setup - excellent location, genuinely friendly service, quirky rooms, and excellent breakfast - addresses its target market really well.

08.09.2017

Friendly staff,well maintained facilities.

08.09.2017

I loved the room, the shower, the bathroom, your staff (they were delightful), the breakfast, the closeness to the station. The lifts were reliable and all in all, I found this hotel near-perfect for what i needed. Slightly negative points: I was very wary of the plughole with the plug that never closed by design, as I'm a contact lens wearer, and was very nervous when taking them out and rinsing them. Also, there was no shower cap. The wifi was variable. The entrance with 8 steps but no slope, and then a further staircase, made it awkward with a suitcase on arrival. The air con was quirky and there was no room brochure to explain. But these are relatively minor points

07.09.2017

As usual a pleasant stay.

07.09.2017

The only thing that would make my score higher would be larger glasses for juice at breakfast time. They are ridiculously small and you need around 3 of them to have a proper glass of juice.

07.09.2017

I was given a room with a view even though I did not pay for it, this room was also a room which could be used be disabled patrons. The room was clean, very large with a lovely walk in wet room and with a view towards the Scott monument that in other establishments would cost three times as much. The staff were all international and extremely helpful and friendly. If you needed a base to operate from this hotel is it, located directly across from the train station and just below the castle you have access to all of Edinburgh's delights with multiple restaurant's on your doorstep. If you compare the price of £89 per night versus other budget establishments this offers excellent value and when you compare it with premium hotels it blows them out of the water. Would I stay here again, yes, yes and a thumbs up yes. Business or leisure with location, value for money and comfort make this a must compare hotel for travellers that don't need a gym or swimming pool and are prepared to eat out at night.

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.

12.09.2017

Nach 10 Tagen Rundreise durch die Highlands haben wir die letzten drei Tage in Edinburgh verbracht. Die Lage ist perfekt. Alles ist zu Fuß erreichbar. Rezeption sehr gut und absolut hilfsbereit. Lounge Frühstück: Die Sitzmöbel sehen stellenweise etwas mitgenommen aus. Liegt auch am Konzept Motel One. An den Hockern und Tischen kann man nicht Essen ohne zu kleckern:-) Das Frühstück selber ist gut, mir persönlich hat Rühei gefehlt. Zu Stoßzeiten haben außerdem Eierbecher gefehlt. Hier hätten mehr helfende Hände Abhilfe geschaffen. Der Kaffee schmeckt bitter. Zimmer: die "EU" Steckdose fand ich sehr gut. Eine Steckdose für den Wasserkocher zu finden ist schwierig. Bad ist sehr gut. Nach 10 vorherigen Holtels auf unserer Rundreise in dieser Preisspanne immer gern wieder Motel One.

11.09.2017

Sehr schönes, zentral gelegenes Hotel in Edinburgh.

10.09.2017

Alles bestens: freundliche, hilfsbereite Leute am Counter, schönes Zimmer, super Location.W-LAN ließ abends zu wünschen übrig. Keine Verbindung, erst wieder in der Rezeption, abe rnicht im Zimmer.

09.09.2017

Sehr freundliches Personal.

09.09.2017

Zuvorkommender und aufmerksamer Service, äußerst saubere Zimmer und ein breit gefächertes Frühstücksbuffett. Angenehmer Aufenthalt in zentraler Lage. Gerne wieder und sehr zu empfehlen!
