hotel very handy location. Everywhere very clean, all staff very pleasant. It was annoying only having one socket half way up the wall and the fact that the plug in washbasin didn't appear to move.

18.08.2017

The room facilities could not be used because the kettle could not be plugged into an electrical socket as the lead didn't reach, the noise levels was intolerable and breakfast was terrible, we could not get a seat and there was very little food left. We complained at the time but offered no apology or discount.

18.08.2017

Reception staff cheerful and helpful. Limited tv offerings; no phone in room. No chairs or portable racks to place luggage. Breakfast lounge too small, over-crowded daily.

18.08.2017

We were very pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the staff, the standard of our room and the cleanliness. Our only (small) gripe was the breakfast service. No matter what time we came it was always very crowded and the staff had trouble keeping up the supplies. Long queues were always present at the coffee machines. Often one was not working and sometimes both.

18.08.2017

The hotel is very well located for the Old Town. The bedroom was pretty small but we changed with our friend who was a single person but got a larger room! This did not make sense don't they read the reservations ? The breakfast on the first morning a little chaotic as coffee machines not working and a long queue grew for coffee made by staff which blocked the breakfast buffet. The coffee machine was declared fixed but coffee like dishwater!

18.08.2017

The Location is excellent but unfortunately we were rather disappointed with parts of the eating area in such a lovely hotel. We paid for our breakfast which was £9.50 pp on our arrival and were never asked if we were actual residents or for our room number any morning. What was really annoying was that we saw folk walking in off the street and going to have breakfast and then looked like they just walked out!!!! It just seemed a bit unfair and I do think you definitely need to have someone overseeing that. I do not mind people coming in for a breakfast but it should be monitored better and paying someone to solely do that might be beneficial to the hotel.

18.08.2017

First class in service, cleanliness plus the location is ideal for our yearly visit for the Tattoo.

18.08.2017

excellent location downtown Edinburgh

17.08.2017

Room was excellent with fantastic views. The staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I had requested a room with a great view before we arrived and were not disappointed. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

17.08.2017

I specifically asked for a room away from the elevator (following earlier complaints) and was assured it wasn't, yet when I got to it, it was right beside the Cockburn Street elevator.

17.08.2017

Overall very good with great location sand helpful staff Need to do something about paucity power points - almost dangerous with kettle and powering laptops. Ridiculous small desk. (Did discuss with assistant manager (?) one evening. This is just taking economy or budget too far. BUT - would definitely recommend!

17.08.2017

The Location was just perfect for sightseeing and the airport Bus. The rooms are good, clean and without a cabinet which nobody needs. 1 Point Reduktion as the heating did not work in summer and 1 Point Reduktion for the price, this is not low Budget anymore but it was August Festival

16.08.2017

The location is good for access to public transport. The room was very poorly designed in terms of functionality, and didn't match the claims made about good design. It was however quiet and clean. It was clearly aimed at a German clientele in terms of language and product. I'm a very happy customer of the Accor chain; when I stay in their hotels I don't feel I should be French, but when I stayed in this hotel I felt I didn't belong because I wasn't German. I didn't feel it was good value compared to other budget chains in the UK, mainly due to the poor room facilities.

16.08.2017

Very friendly staff. Hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to major attractions and transport.

16.08.2017

Great location for EdFringe & excellent staff throughout the hotel. Thanks to all for a great stay, hopefully we'll see them again

16.08.2017

Location is great, very clean, nice staff and great service.

15.08.2017

On the up side: Very nice staff, rooms and a tasty breakfast. On the down side: Crowded and few available seats at breakfast. Wi-Fi sucks, very slow..

15.08.2017

great location, long walk to our room. room was a litte small, but was adequare for a couple of nights, the bathroom was lovely. The staff were very freindly, although didnt understand why the cleaner took away our towels for 2, but replaced with towels for 1, and left my dirty tea cup. Room was very warm even thought we turned the heating off, but that could have been an error on our part now quite knowing how to work the air cooling. Overall we enjoyed and would definately stay again.

15.08.2017

This is my third stay at Motel 1 Edinghburgh. As usual the friendliness of the staffs f was excellent. Rooms are adequate clean nad meet all needs for a weekend break. Breakfast is good, however pick your time as it can be busy, but it was during the Fringe & Tattoo. Will return and recommend to others. Excellent location in the city for both Old & New town.

15.08.2017

As always our stay at the Hotel was most enjoyable and good value. Comfortable and immaculately clean room and welcoming and efficient staff. Thank you

15.08.2017

The staff were experienced and very helpful. Meeting cleaning staff who were willing to give you a couple more minutes before cleaning the room. They were polite and knew what thet were doing. Breakfast was extensive and very good. Overall I would recommend the hotel to friends and would have no hesitation staying there again. Regards Pat C.

15.08.2017

Accommodation as accommodation should be: Friendly and helpful staff 24h a day, affordable rates, clean and tidy rooms and they always kept up this high standard constantly over years. Looking forward to my next stay in just one week. There's only one thing that could be improved: Please ad the option for a Full Scottish Breakfast! Hey, it's Scotland's Capital !

15.08.2017

Motel-one is the ideal place to stay in Edinburgh as it is 2 minutes from Waverley station and only minutes from the New and Old town areas of Edinburgh, rooms are well presented and clean, and the breakfast is reasonabley priced at £9.50.

15.08.2017

Amazing location - couldn't be more central but on an upper room still quiet. I think a view was stretching it a bit. Too few staff - both at check in and at the bar. It's the festival. They know it's mobbed. Bizarrely the room seemed to have a grand total of 1 plug - which was nowhere near the mirrors nor dressing table - which had no mirror. Would only stay again due to location.

15.08.2017

As always, our stay was comfortable and staff polite and helpful. Excellent, central position but wish that the rooms were not quite so expensive during the Festival in August. But compared with other hotels in Edinburgh, Motel One is still very competitive.

14.08.2017

Excellent location, clean, friendly staff, bed was just horribly uncomfortable.

14.08.2017

Excellent service: the staff could not have been more helpful. Great rooms. Comfortable beds. Nice bar. However we don't eat breakfast at the hotel as there aren't enough dining tables and I don't like eating at knee level!

14.08.2017

Immaculate as always ,fantastic location and excellent customer care -love staying at Motel One.

14.08.2017

As experienced when I stayed last time, the hotel was very comfortable, well organised and a pleasure to stay in. The staff were always cheerful and most pleasant, cheerful and helpful.

14.08.2017

Fine place to stay. Will stay here again if I'm lucky enough to ever visit this beautiful city again.

14.08.2017

Very friendly staff. Room and hotel appear to have been recently remodeled and styling was clean and modern throughout. Excellent location for our needs. Excellent value and will book again.

14.08.2017

Great location near many attractions. Room good, simple with good ergonomics Breakfast layout not great when many guests mingling to access food etc

14.08.2017

Stayed here several times. First time in a room without a view. Good light from skylight. All public areas clean, staff incredibly friendly, couldn't do enough. Only small issue was room being missed from cleaning rota twice because I had returned to the room when it was due to be cleaned. Staff apologised and it was rectified for the rest of my stay. Wifi and 4G signal was a little hit & miss in room.

13.08.2017

The location is very good and all staffs are kind. The room is clean.

13.08.2017

Excellent stay. Thank you.

13.08.2017

Room spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and efficient.

13.08.2017

I was sent to this hotel after my long standing booking for Motel One on Princes Street appeared to have been lost in the hotel's booking system. Not a great start for a first time guest to this chain of hotels. I was offered a free cocktail at the second hotel by way of compensation for the inconvenience. This hotel is split over two connected buildings and gives the impression of being a bit of a warren. I was unfortunate to be be given a room in the adjoining building. As far as I could see there is only one access door to the hotel which can be a bit of a trek if like me you are not in the main building. My room was one of the smallest I've ever stayed in. The very barest of essentials are provided and space is at a premium. Furthermore my room window was next to a public stairway leading to the Royal Mile. Not as private as I would have liked. Bed was comfortable enough and I got a decent sleep. Bathroom was adequate but the door couldn't stay open. Not ideal if you are claustrophobic. Breakfast is continental and there was plenty of it but it's not my favourite start to the day. Location wise it is ideally situated for many of the attractions that Edinburgh has to offer. It is not far from Waverley train station and the airport bus terminus. As this was a one night business trip on a budget it was ok but I'd be unlikely to stay there as a tourist.

12.08.2017

Great location right next to the railway station. Rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything you need for a short stay. Best part of this hotel is the staff. They have the most helpful and friendly reception staff. Always there for advice on the area and it is handy to leave luggage if you arrive early or are leaving later than check out time. 3rd stay at this hotel.

19.08.2017

Für unsere Wochenendreise nach Edinburgh mit Besuch Tattoo ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel in Toplage. Freundliches Personal, Sauberkeit, die ganze Atmosphäre im Haus und ein sehr gutes Frühstück haben uns sehr gefallen! Das Zimmer im 7. Stock war für drei Übernachtungen gut, die Einrichtung ausreichend, allerdings könnten die Ablagemöglichkeiten (Nachttisch, Kommode ect) etwas verbessert werden!

18.08.2017

Dass ich keine 9 Punkte vergeben habe, liegt daran, dass das Zimmer während der Nacht schlichtweg VIEL zu kalt war. Auf Anfrage hat man mir erklärt, dass man in den Sommermonaten nur kühlen kann und im Winter nur heizen.

18.08.2017

In dem Zimmer wurde geraucht. Das Hotel war anlässlich des Finge Festivals ausgebucht, schön für das Hotel, aber das Frühstück war für mich als Kunden eine der unangenehmsten Erfahrungen, die ich in einem Hotel gemacht habe. Bisher war ich von Motel One begeistert, habe es privat und beruflich weiterempfohlen, in meinen Vorlesungen oft positiv erwähnt in vielerlei Hinsicht, sogar in Frankfurt Messe zweimal eine litauische Besuchergruppe von Führungskräften (15-20) zweimal gebucht. Nach meiner Erfahrung in Edinburgh frage ich mich, ob ich das Risiko einer ähnlichen Erfahrung noch einmal eingehen kann.

17.08.2017

Schönes Haus, nettes Personal, sehr gute Lage und Verkehrsanbindung.

16.08.2017

Alles war super: zentale Lage, schönes Zimmer, freundliches Personal, alles sauber, Frühstück sehr gut!

16.08.2017

Sehr gute Lage im Herzen von Edinburgh, sehr gut vom Flughafen mit Bus erreichbar, Sehenswürdigkeiten sehr gut fußläufig erreichbar. Das beste Zimmer, das ich in einem Motel One je hatte, leider keine gute WLAN-Verbindung im Zimmer, fiel häufig aus. Sauberkeit sehr gut, Frühstück Motel One spezifisch, wie man es kennt aus allen Hotels. Würde es jederzeit wieder buchen.

15.08.2017

Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm. Daa Personal ausgesprochen freundlich! Einziger Kritikpunkt: Die Lounge-Tische sind sehr klein und niedrig was speziell beim Frühstücken sehr unbequem sein kann. Alles in allem aber ein sehr empfehlenswertes Hotel!

15.08.2017

Sehr nettes und freundliches Personal.

15.08.2017

Wie immer sehr schöner Aufenthalt im Motel One

15.08.2017

Super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Zimmer gross und komfortabel eingerichtet . Frühstücksraum zu klein für so viele Gäste.

14.08.2017

Der Aufenthalt in Ihrem Hotel war wie immer toll. Ich habe nur zwei Punkte zu bemängeln. Beim Frühstück standen zwei Kaffeemaschinen zur Verfügung. Am ersten Morgen ist eine der Kaffeemaschinen ausgefallen. Bis zu unserer Abreise vier Tage später wurde diese nicht repariert. Daher hat sich vor der verbliebenen Kaffeemaschine immer eine ziemliche Warteschlange gebildet. Der zweite negative Punkt war, dass die Fernbedienung unseres Fernsehers nicht richtig funktioniert hat und dies nicht behoben wurde obschon wir dies an der Rezeption gemeldet haben.

13.08.2017

Sehr angenehm
