"Really lovely hotel"
Absolutely gorgeous hotel in a very convenient location in Edinburgh. The staff were exceptional and really made our short stay brilliant relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed experiencing the creative design/ideas at the hotel, for example, alongside the stairs to the reception area is a glass/fibreglass mini square lift to use to get up to reception with luggage, an amazing 'glass' bridgeway to an adjacent building, a huge dancing fire image on a large screen near the reception desk and the smart design […] of room, including a spacious shower, vertical shelving for putting gear/clothes on and very comfortable bedding.

Great location, checking in was slow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
excellent position for all sightseeing. Room small hot and dark as we were in the well. Breakfast seemed a little disorganised so we did not bother.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location though a convoluted path to room"
The motel was near enough to the Waverly train station in Edinburgy - about 5 minute walk once we knew where it was. The room was OK - we had two single beds which was better than the double bed we had in the another hotel in Edinburgh (which was very small). However, it was quite a convoluted path to our room. There was a lift but we still had to navigate […] a few steps. I guess if you have diff with stairs, to emphasise that when booking your room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful centrally located hotel"
Reasonably priced hotel, very modern, clean, helpful and pleasant staff. Good continental breakfast on site to start your day (surcharge). This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the train station, central bus station, and busses to airport. Also located between Princes Street and the Royal Mile, an easy walk to Edinburgh Castle, Palace […] of Holyrood House, St. Giles Cathedral, etc. Highly recommended.

"Good location but could not stay more than 1 night"
For the price I paid for the room, it was definitely NOT worth it!I I actually checked out of the hotel one day early as I did not enjoy my stay.The room was stifling hot; there were no accessible electrical outlets other than ONE outlet on one wall which was so high that I needed to move the table to the entrance area in order for the cords of my iPhon, […] or hairdryer, or kettle to reach the plug. Each time I needed to use the plug, I had to unplug my computer.There was no safe in the room, and no mini bar. The room was tiny, spartan (no pictures...one small table) and for the price I paid I expected much more. I would not recommend this hotel unless the room was much cheaper!!!

Top Location. Very close to Edinburgh Castle. Overall excellent Hotel. There is a chemical smell in the corridors and the Hotel needs to check this and rectify it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stay in motel one"
Very good , stayed one night , I would stay again, great location, responsible price, didn't get a chance to try breakfast... My only problem was my room was very hot, I didn't sleep very well and I tried with the a/c and the windows but nothing seemed to work . The sockets seemed to be in very strange places ... I had to move my kettle to a socket […] that was midway up the wall, so had to use a stool to prop my kettle on, in order for it to reach the socket ... ( maybe that was just me) another bin in the room, maybe under the dressing table would be nice not just in the bathroom.. And also I only had shower gel, maybe a wrapped soap would be nice by the sink or hand soap to wash my hands.. I am aware that it is a basic hotel, but these little things should be addressed.. Saying that they are minor and I would if mentioned them if I wasn't only staying for one night.. All in all I would stay again, the reception and bar area was nice, staff nice, great place, did the job. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Very clean and comfortable. Floor boards squeak!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was lovely but the room was rather hot and when I asked about air conditioning as I seen in the rooms there was buttons for it but not working the woman told me they didn't have any and we had to keep window open, we then had a restless nights sleep due to room being far to warm and also people in hotel coming in about 4am shouting and screaming […] and that kept up for about an hour. My partner was up and down the whole night near enough going in a cold shower, Maybe next time it will be different Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good all round accommodation"
Cannot fault any part of the stay motel service and accommodation very good. If I was asked what could be improved it would be to add air conditioning as the room was too hot even with the window fully open.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We are in the process of installing air conditioning for our guest bedrooms and are due to be completed by the end of July.

Perfect for our trip .easy assess to city centre and murrayfield for a concert with my daughter .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice and friendly hotel with great rooms. Decor lovely. Will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really enjoyed our stay room was comfortable and very clean. Hotel ideally situated for castle,museeums etc and only 5 minutes from Waverley station. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. They were happy to help with any questions and were knowledgable about best directions to all main attractions.Would definitely use this hotel in the […] future.

"Clean and comfortable"
The hotel is in a great location. Clean, quiet and comfortable with friendly service. Our only complaint is the air conditioning. I guess the Scots aren't that familiar with the concept of deliberately keeping cool, but the air conditioning in our room just wasn't effective. We couldn't open the windows without it getting noisy and found it uncomfortably […] warm for sleeping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is in 2 different but internally attached buildings on a steep hill so it was a bit of a trek from reception, up 5 floors on a lift, walking through 2 buildings, then down a flight of stairs to my room. Great location though and very modern, clean and comfortable with free WIFIGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great central location, modern, clean , good service throughout and has everything you need.. Great for a 1 or 2 night business trip but not sure if I'd stay there if was visiting with family/wife if for leisure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location for Central Edinburgh"
2 minute walk from Waverley Airport Express Station Excellent location to base yourself for touring Edinburgh Great bars and restaurants within easy walking distance Ideal for main attractions Basic hotel with very few facilities -- you arrive -- you pay -- inner rooms overlooked by other rooms and corridors -- so you need to keep your curtains closed […] and live in the dark Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel in a great location"
This hotel is situated right off of Waverley Bridge, right in what seemed to be the heart of city center with a number of bars, restaurants and shopping at your doorstep. The first room I was offered (on the 3rd floor) was extremely cold even after an hour of having the heat on at 25 degrees Celsius. When I went down to the reception to ask about it […] they immediately offered me another room without hesitation, which I greatly appreciated.The new room was heated appropriately and was even too warm at times even when the heating was only set to 10 degrees Celsius/ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ideal City Centre Location"
The room was lovely, the staff were very helpful and I had a lovely time at Motel One. The only shame is that it doesn't provide a cooked breakfast, other than that I would have no problem recommending this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel One, Edinburgh"
Overall we had a good stay at this hotel. We had a problem with the room being exceptionally hot on the first night as the thermostat didn't seem to be working. We spoke to reception who responded promptly by putting a fan in our room, which helped a little. Other negative points would be that the tea and coffee facilities were not replenished and there […] was no soap in the bathroom to wash your hands. Apart from this we had a great stay in Edinburgh, and I would probably stay at the hotel again due to it's excellent location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very central close to Waverley Railway Station"
Booked a room with a view and it had a wonderful view of Princes Street and gardens. It had 5 windows but was double glazed so still quiet. Close to the Royal Mile and all that it offers.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in a Fab Location"
Lovely hotel in a perfect location and very helpful friendly staff would be one of the best hotels for a great price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very disappointed with view of bins/brick walls"
Thought the hotel was very well decorated with a great location. Was VERY disappointed when got to our room! The room was very well furnished BUT the views were awful. Had a view of someones bike & the bins out of the side window & a brick wall out of the other 2 windows. Spent the whole of our stay with all the curtains shut as it was too depressing […] to have them open. This really let the hotel down. I feel a disounted rate should be applied to these rooms as the rate charged per night was very steep to look at dirty bins/brick walls. If i had a better view i would have felt happy enough to pay the going rate & stay at the hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfectly fine for the price but i felt the rooms looked a bit miserable , needed some artwork on the walls. The bathroom supplies could be improved . No soap given and my towles were left on the floor of the bathjroom instead of on the side or hanging up. I thought the breakfast was bad value. Aside from this it is clean, cheap and the staff are […] really friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modern and VERY central"
Hotel is right in the centre of the city and a perfect base point. Hotel is basic but modern and clean, with all that is necessary for a comfortable stay. Will stay again if in Edinburgh. Nice and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was a good size, shower excellent. Perhaps a bit disappointed that our double room had 2 single beds pushed together but not a big deal. Quite happy overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Brilliant location to all you'd want to be near!"
Facilities were so clean and so comfortable. The room was small but it was all that was needed. Front desk was very "matter of fact" not warm but not unfriendly. It would be helpful to be told there are no phones and no face clothes in the rooms. No ice machines or ice provided either. No frills (but very well decorated and great showers) knowing all […] this in advance would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"not an english hotel"
we enjoyed the clean,fresh,new feel ....but not the service or being in this hotel AT ALL...the other guests were obviously under the impression it wes for german guests only and made you feel unwelcome and uncomfortable...such a shame,as this spoilt our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern staff friendly clean hotel"
Our overall stay was comfortable, our room 'with a view' could be doing with windows cleaned, and electrical sockets in more than appropriate places. Breakfast buffet is well recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very comfortable, spacious room. Very clean and tidy. Perfect location. Staff very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Catch up with friends and relatives"
Hotel was brilliant with very friendly and helpful staffGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff were friendly and professional, room was clean and modern but SUPER tiny. My husband and I didn't sleep well only because we each had separate single sized duvets for our double bed. So if you don't move when you sleep or cuddle with your partner... this won't be an issue!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Most comfortable bed ever"
Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, incredible location. The only down side was my room was way too warm and I couldn't open the window!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredible stylish hotel"
Motel One offer incredibly stylish accomodation at very reasonable prices. If you're just looking for a place to stay whilst on a city break I can not recommend this brand anymore. The rooms aren't the biggest but they have everything you need, are impeccably clean and modern, and they have a very unique look. The reception is very welcoming, as […] is the bar, and the staff are nice and proficient. We will definitely be returning. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice clean and smart hotel in a great location. Had our two Weimaraners with us and with Waverly park just across the road (for walkies) it couldn't have been better. Parking was the only drawback, with on street pay and display parking limited to 3 hours. We parked at Waverly rail station, which is quite close by, but it's worth finding a space […] outside it you have a lot of luggage. Owned and run by a central European country (possibly German) it is very popular with overseas visitors, which is reflected in the breakfast arrangements. Other meals (along with room service) are not available, so you will find yourself looking elsewhere for food - slightly limiting with dogs in tow. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value in a great location"
Two minute walk from Waverley Station. Great value for such a central location. No view from the room we were in, but we were only there for the night & that wasn't important to us. Very clean room, tea & coffee making equipment which is absent in many places these days, and friendly staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Just what we wanted. Efficient service, clean comfortable room. Near all facilities of city and a stone's throw from the station. Fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay!"
I am so glad we chose this hotel! The location was central to everything we wanted to do and right next to the train station so we didn't have to lug our suitcases far at all!

Had check-in issues. The computer system was down and we were given a room that was being painted. Sorted out quickly. Rooms are very small and excellent for one person. A bit cramped for 2.

"Excellent base for exploration of the Royal Mile"
The best thing about the hotel is its location: a 5-minute walk to Edinburgh's Royal Mile, Princes Street, the central Waverley train station and the AirLink bus stop (express bus to/from the airport). But the hotel itself is great, too: new, comfortable, stylish. Good service too. A very good deal at the price. BTW, it's not a motel, but a genuine […] hotel in an historic building. Motel One is just the name of the German chain to which it belongs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
