"Mediocre Hotel in Great Spot"
The hotel itself is mediocre at best - the layout is haphazard, the rooms are sometimes oddly shaped, the shower temperature fluctuates between hot and cold and doesn't have much pressure, the beds are rock-hard, and one day the banging from the kitchen woke us up at 6 am and didn't stop by the time we left at 11am. There's no way to contact the front […] desk from the room and the internet barely works. There is no A/C, which honestly usually isn't an issue in Scotland, but then again it makes me wonder how well their heat system works because there is no way to change the temperature in the room, just increase the fan speed. The bar in the lobby is ridiculously overpriced. And there is no parking - the closest garage is past the train station. But the personnel were nice, the place was clean, and the location is absolutely fantastic. It's next to the train station (but we never heard sounds from the station or anything), only one street away from the Royal Mile, and is within walking distance of absolutely everything. There are several key attractions within a half-mile of this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient to everything though a little noisy at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location for Royal Mile. Staff was very helpful, recommended great restaurant prior to theater reservationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location at a fair price!"
We enjoyed our stay at the Motel One Edinburgh-Royal. The location is great - very central and right in the middle of the Royal Mile. The room itself was comfortable and decently-sized for a city. Parking can be a bit of a hassle if you have a car with you but there is a parking deck not too far away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient for train station and national gallery"
The hotel was comfortable, though less frills that I would have thought. The wireless worked part of the time, but in the evening, when most of the hotel was apparently using it, it was so slow as to be functionally useless. People were helpful, the room was clean, and the location was ideal for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was unhappy only with the lack of telephone in the room or any other way to contact the front desk. Otherwise it was lovely.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, small room"
The staff were friendly and helpful. I actually had forgotten to print a voucher out that I needed for the hop-off-hop-on bus and the concierge let me come behind the desk and use their computers and printers. It was very nice. The room was clean, but small. We did smell smoke through the window...no idea where it was coming from because the window […] appeared to open up to just a brick wall. The location was perfect. The bar was nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My experience was nearly a perfect stay. The only draw back was a few quirky things with the actual room: no nightstand, odd light switches(you never quite knew which switch turned on/off which lights) , two twin blankets for queen bed rather than one large blanket and there were no bars of soap to wash hands with only body wash gel. Other than these […] few quirks I highly recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location in town."
Rooms were quite basic however friendly, helpful staff and brilliant location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'll stay again"
Ive stayed in three Motel One branches. All consistantly good and value for money. It is unusual though in UK hotels to be charged a different rate for solo or twin occupancy of the same room. Weird one. We are used to a 'room rate' not occupancy rates. Thats the only thing that would put me off.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is comfortable and moder in a fantastic location. Staff were all helpful and friendly. We stayed room only therefore cannot comment on the breakfast etc. The hotel is split with part of it in Cockburn St which is not a problem as such but as there is no exit in this part of the hotel which means a trek from one building to another in and out […] of lifts. managble for us but may not be so for families with push chairs or those who use wheelchairs or infirm! overall great value would stay again!

"Welcoming, friendly and clean"
First time I had been to Edinburgh and was travelling alone so was really great to come to a hotel with such friendly staff who were so welcoming. I stayed in a classic room which was very clean and spacious with everything I needed. The hotel is about a 4 minute walk to Princes Street (the main high street) and a 2 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverly […] Train Station. Thank you Motel One! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good choice in central location!"
I enjoyed my stay at Motel One in Ediburgh, it had a central location and was very beautifully presented. The room was basic but adequate for a short stay. The breakfast was excellent and the staff great. Would recommend to anyone and close to Waverley train station and Princes Street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and modern however poor sleeping conditions!"
Lovely hotel cleanliness top notch however room very very warm and stuffy, only had a velux window which could not open and the 'air-con' did not work at all despite complaining to staff. Awfult to sleep in due to the stuffiness and this was in mid october hate to think what its like in hot summer ,Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Amazing gem in Old Town."
This was a great location with, warm, knowledgable, friendly staff. By the time I left, I was leaving friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a night out planned in Edinburgh so decided to stay overnight to save us having to worry about travelling home the same night. We were therefore just looking for a fairly cheap room that would give us a comfortable place to sleep for the night. We have stayed in a few places around Edinburgh & this was the cheapest room we paid for but it was […] by far the best. Great central location, lovely staff, clean rooms & fantastic furnishings! We were so impressed & would highly recommend this place to everyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Grumpy staff and no plug sockets !"
Was fine for a one night stay but very unfriendly welcome by reception staff. Room was modern but very warm and no a/c. Lack of plug sockets in the room made life difficult. Was ok for the discounted price but wouldn't rush back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location - right next to Waverley station. Clean room and nice bathroom. Good size. It was a bit weird though having two single duvets for a double bed. Room was cold but we mentioned this to the desk and they brought a heater up for us! Excellent service. hey They can also look after your bags while you mooch around Edinburgh before/after […] check in/out! Good stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Incredibile location and cosy atmosphere"
The hotel is located perfectly, staff is nice and prepared, our room was large with a Nice view, perfectly cleaned and with a lovely decor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic location, great for short stays with basic but spotless room. Beds were very, very firm and not to our liking at all. Staff not particularly helpful, but we really did not need a lot from them. Don't expect a range of complementary toiletries - because again, very basic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The location is excellent"
The hotel is extremely near to the railway station, just a few minutes walk. The room is clean and the staff are nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Expensive for a budget Hotel for a Thursday & Friday night stay, but room 720 on top floor was quite large but clean & quiet. Would benifit from an addition of wardrobe & at least one bedside cabinet you could move for whoever turns the alarm off. There was some shelving & a rail for hanging but all felt temporary. Nice large wetroom & toilet with nice […] wide door which I think would be handy for a disabled person, although no bath. Not much of a view of apartments overlooking you but if you stuck your head out of the window you coud see up Cockburn str. Continental breakfast to be payed for extra but we used the Malt Shovel pub oppisite for a full English. All in a good stay but if I were to stay there again I would be looking for a better deal. Excelent Location with the old town & Royal mile just behind it & across Waverley bridge to Princess street etc in front of it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is located right outside Waverley station on the Castle side, which is great if you want to walk up to the royal mile or down to the new town. The room is basic and the coffee in the hotel room is adequate to start the day. The wifi is fast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent personal service, great room, and fantastic location. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern functional hotel"
Prompt efficient check-in - Room available on my arrival @ 11.30am - Limited space for hanging clothes (no wardrobe as such) - Compact shower room but fine for sole traveller - Ideally located for Edinburgh Waverley stationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, perfectly situated."
Really enjoyed our 3night stay and couldn't have asked for much more from the hotel with regards to cleanliness, location and value for money. It literally a minute walk from the station and is situated just on the old town side of the city, stones throw from royal mile and the castle. Only thing with the rooms would be that they did not have much hanging […] space or storage but it was the only point I could pick up on. Would definitely recommend.

"Great Location, No frills"
Great location and staff are fantastic. Room was very small and no frills but who spends all their time in the room in a city? Served it's purpose well and would defo stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in fantastic location."
Booked this hotel for a couple of nights to celebrate my partners birthday. Picked the hotel because of the location and wasn't disappointed; is just a couple of minutes walk from the royal mile, only about 5-10min from the castle, and the same from Princess St. Despite that the hotel was quite and even during the fringe didn't notice any noise overnight. Happy […] to recommend is hotel and will probably stay here again when in Edinburgh. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
