Clean and fresh in the room with a wonderful view over Edinburgh

23.05.2017

The room was to cold, with unpleasant smell. Breakfast area is to small with uncomfortable sitting.

23.05.2017

Excellent budget hotel in fabulous central location- would definitely stay again. Asked for a room with a view- initially very small room with tiny window but staff helped me change to a very quiet, larger room with better view few days latter. Wifi very variable. Extremely clean basic rooms. Staff friendly, patient and helpful.

23.05.2017

Good value, amazing location right in the heart of Edinburgh, nice people and the bar is open all night - what else do you need?

23.05.2017

Excellent! Best possible location for buses and trains as well as touring. We had a great view of Edinburgh Castle. Hop on hop off bus stop in front of the door. In the old city. Very modern amenities in a beautiful historic building. Clean, comfortable and roomy. Loved it!

23.05.2017

This is ideally placed, right in the heart of Edinburgh. It was clean, the staff were super helpful. We could walk everywhere and it was extremely good value. A+

23.05.2017

Very good located and all that needed was available in the hotel, nice room with a good bed and shower.

22.05.2017

Please provide a locker

22.05.2017

We enjoyed our stay but we're surprised when we had to pay extra for a double occupancy room. The numerous choices were confusing. The prices were misleading. The view from the top floor was stunning.

22.05.2017

good location, rooms very basic. no outlook at all

21.05.2017

Perfect hotel for your stay at Edinburgh - not only are you in the middle of the (old) town, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, but the hotel is also very clean. We really enjoyed our stay -the only downside is, that the breakfast area is rather small - it's best to get up early to find a place.

21.05.2017

Would definitely recommend this hotel. Friendly staff, very clean and quiet and the location in Edinburgh is superb.

21.05.2017

Absolutely loved this place. Perfect location for both transportation and entertainment. Rooms were beautiful and spacious. Staff were super nice. Would recommend this place to anyone. Also really good price. Loved it..

21.05.2017

The common areas could be improved better and cleaner seating

20.05.2017

The hotel has everything you need for a short stay away. Comfy bed, great shower and a good breakfast. Good value for money and location excellent.

20.05.2017

Excellent hotel. Location close to the rail station and major attractions meant that very little walking was required to enjoy the city. Hotel was modern and clean. Good value for the money. Only improvement I could suggest is there wasn't a lot of hot food options at breakfast, even then I have no real complaints.

20.05.2017

attention, friendliness, good and wide bedroom and bathroom, good bed. very good breakfast offer

20.05.2017

We spent three nights at the Motel One Edinburgh. The room was very nice. We had a lovely view of the park and older buildings in the city. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was wonderful. We were right by the train station, across the street from the bus stop and park and very close to the main area of the city. The staff was friendly and helpful in answering our questions. There was a nice coffee/beverage area in the lobby that was available 24 hours.

19.05.2017

Unsatisfactory This is basically due to the kettle situation in the room. Where it stands there is NO plug system. In order to plug the kettle in one has to drag either a stool or chair near the bathroom (the only plug in the room) to plug in the kettle. This is a hazard if one wants to use the bathroom - it is an obstacle course; I tripped several times over the stool forgetting it was holding up the kettle.. Bathroom: the tap was leaking so every time I washed my face in the basin there was water all over the place - had to use the face towel to mop up each time. My other observation was that of the Bar. Service is excellent but if one is spending a lot of money buying drinks it would be a nice gesture to provide little nibbles like peanuts or crisps!!!!! Did I get value for money: NO. Price is rather steep considering the above complaints I would recommend the hotel if the above was straightened out more especially the kettle fiasco.

19.05.2017

First time at Motel One. I will be back !

19.05.2017

Location was perfect, staff very friendly and helpful, but room was too warm, no proper curtains so we were woken up early by the light, and our room was miles from reception which was a bit of a pain. Shower was great but hairdryer rubbish!

18.05.2017

We enjoyed our time with you and were grateful for the cheerful, helpful staff; the excellent breakfasts and welcome evening snacks before having a good night's rest on comfortable beds. We will strongly recommend you to our friends, and hope to visit again. Only negative - plug in basin didn't work.

18.05.2017

Fabulous central place to stay. Great rooms & food. Highly recommended place to stay.

17.05.2017

The hotel is clean and tidy. The staff are helpful and friendly. A good central location. The bar isn't too dear and is a nice place to relax. My one gripe- we stayed on the 7th floor and a door somewhere close to us made an horrendous squeaking noise every time it was opened or closed. Unfortunately whoever was using it was doing so in the middle of the night and it woke us up. You need to fix this door!

17.05.2017

Our stay was wonderful. The staff is incredible - so nice, so helpful, and creates a lovely and welcoming atmosphere. I would recommend this particular Motel 1 to anyone, and will come back every time I'm in Edinburgh. Well done!

17.05.2017

The hotel was great but it was cold in the room. They told us they have turned a/c only for cold but there was a termometre that didn't work and we didn't get a portable heater till the last night. In bed was warm enough because they gave us an extra blanket.

17.05.2017

Thank you for our stay we had a great time and the hotel was ideally located for us.the room we had 518 was excellent consideration due to it having a wet room as my wife has trouble with a bath due to two hip replacements,we will certainly be using this hotel again as everything was perfect,thank you again John Bohan

17.05.2017

Our stay at Motel One was excellent! The rooms were clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the morning breakfast buffet. We highly recommend this affordable hotel in the middle of the Royal Mile.

17.05.2017

This hotel was fantastic! Perfect location - close to the train station, short walk to castle, old town behind and Princes Street just across Waverley Bridge. I was here on my own for four nights on business and the staff were so helpful, friendly and professional. I would like to bring my family back to this hotel and visit Edinburgh as a tourist! The one annoying thing - the plugs! Why are they halfway up the wall? You have to boil the kettle on the stool for the dressing table! What would make this hotel better would be if they had a restaurant, but there are plenty of places to go and eat so not the end of the world.

17.05.2017

Motel One Edinburgh has an excellent location, yet very reasonable prices.The rooms are spartan (no furniture) but there is adequate storage.We liked the bed, and the power point next to the mirror (for hair drying). The plumbing in the disabled room 303 (toilet) could be improved.It did not flush clear readily. Breakfast is good, but finding somewhere to sit was difficult on all three days.

16.05.2017

Located next to Waverley Station, easy reach to the Castle and Princes Street. Friendly reception who helped print a ticket. Room was functional, with a great ensuite. Coffee and tea facilities provided. Just remember to bring an extension lead or move furniture as sockets are not ideally located. I would stay here again and again.

16.05.2017

Good value for money. Nice room, good breakfast. Location close to centre and public transport.

16.05.2017

Great location. Room very "minimalist" and would have been nice to have bedside tables and some drawer space. There was room for a wardrobe!

16.05.2017

Motel in great location, directly opposite the Weaverly Station. Our room had a corner view looking out onto the station and Princes St. considering the position there was no traffic notice, a big bonus for us as we live in the country. The room: On 5the floor. Modern. Bed although sagged in middle was comfortable for the one night stay. Crisps towels and bedding. Good wifi. Faults; dirty kettle, thick dust round base of bed. No telephone ( reason for not reporting kettle earlier)We advised staff on our departure of these failings. Staff in reception very helpful both on booking direct and on arrival, also bar staff. We did not have breakfast in motel so no comment. Considering the hotel was full we did not experience any noise from other guests, considering wewere in Edinburgh for the rugby European Champions Cup final. City extremely busy. You will find a great variety of eateries close to the motel. Transport is in abundance.

15.05.2017

Comfortable room with ample space. Bed comfortable and storage space adequate for short stay. Staff very accommodating. Did not choose to have the breakfast option but having see what was on offer, should I stay there again, I would go for it. Location was brilliant as it is located just 250 yards from station and all of the local attractions and shopping were within easy walking distance. I would recommend Motel One to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

15.05.2017

Had a great stay friendly staff

23.05.2017

Sehr angenehm, nur im Zimmer es gab am Morgen zuviel Lärm von der Strasse. Aber ich war sehr zufrieden und hoffe wieder kommen

23.05.2017

Das Hotel liegt hervorragend ! Für alle touristischen Aktivitäten bestens. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist wie bei allen Motel 1 bestens! Die Doppelzimmer als "Twins" zu nutzen setzt voraus, dass sich beide im Zimmer gut kennen da es recht eng ist !! Das Frühstück ist grundsätzlich gut - das Abräumen läuft sehr schleppend. Die Drinks an der Bar sind gut, die Mitarbeiter recht freundlich! Ich würde jederzeit wiederkommen!

22.05.2017

Angenehmer Aufenthalt; sehr gute ,zentrale Lage; gutes Frühstück-leider wenig Platz; Parkhaus in der Nähe; immer wieder gerne!

21.05.2017

Funktionales, sauberes Zimmer, gepflegtes Bad. Beides völlig unbeheizt bei 4 Grad Außentemperatur. Frühstück ( 9,50£ ) überteuert, unpraktische Sitz- gelegenheiten. Alternativen in der Nähe und preiswerter.

21.05.2017

Tolles Hotel in bester Lage, uns hat es in Edinburgh sehr gut gefallen und wir können die Stadt und das Hotel wirklich empfehlen.

21.05.2017

Wir haben 5 Tage in Edinburgh, im Motel One Edinburgh - Royal verbracht. Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral, wir haben alle unsere Ziele in kurzer Zeit erreicht. Die Location ist sehr cool, Service war toll, das Personal sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit- insgeamt hat es gut gefallen. Einzig die Frage nach der Bezugsquelle des Tartan- Stoffes auf dem Egg Chair in der Lobby konnte uns nicht beantwortet werden.

21.05.2017

Sehr zentral, trotzdem ruhig. Zimmer waren sauber, Personal freundlich und Frühstück perfekt.

19.05.2017

Plus:Gute Lage, freundliches Personal, kompetente Ansprechpartner an der Rezeption, gute Betten,funktionales Bad Minus:Geringer Stauraum bei längerem Aufenthalt, Frühstück in der Lobby an sehr niedrigen Tischen ist wenig komfortabel

19.05.2017

Für Gäste ohne Auto sehr gut gelegenes Stadthotel in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Bahnhof und zum Flughafenbus, der praktisch vor der Türe hält. Beim Frühstück sitzen 90 % der Gäste an zu kleinen und niedrigen Tischen.

17.05.2017

Ich bin eigentlich ein großer Motel One Fan, doch hatten wir mit den 2 Doppelzimmer die wir gebucht hatten kein Glück. Die Zimmer waren eisig kalt und befanden sich im 2.Stock??? Was zugleich der Keller war. Wir hatten Gitterstäbe vor den Fenstern und die Aussicht war eine Mauer. Um 6 Uhr in der Früh ging der Lärm los, da wurden die Müllcontainer noch vor die Fenster geschoben. An ein schlafen war nicht mehr zu denken. Wir hatten uns dann beschwert und ein neues Zimmer bekommen wo wir dann auch zufrieden waren, trotzdem war eine Nacht nicht zu unserer Zufriedenheit. Für mich unvorstellbar das man solche Zimmer überhaupt anbietet. Und dann noch zum gleichen Preis. Sonst war alles wie immer bestens.

17.05.2017

Gute Lage, überwiegend nettes Personal, Zimmer sauber. Safe im Zimmer fehlte mir

16.05.2017

Das Zimmer war viel zu kalt!!!

16.05.2017

Super Standort, sehr freundliches Personal, sehr sauber - Zimmer war etwas verwirrend zu finden

15.05.2017

Super Lage, sehr freundliches Personal. Zimmer ausreichend groß, sehr sauber und modern eingerichtet. Großes und bequemes bett
