"Relaxing"
This hotel was a fabulous choice in an incredible city! We could see the castle and the Walter Scott monument from our room. The huge opening windows, the amazing shower and the comfortable bed made the room so relaxing after three days on a bus for a highlands tour.

"Great budget hotel"
Great budget hotel! Bed was ok, room was pretty spacious for the price. Nowhere to put luggage... left only the ground, which I hate doing. A few hangers and an open rod for clothes. Worked well enough! Good wi-fi. Breakfast appeared to be a decent spread but we opted to eat in town instead.

"nice location but not a good hotel.."
Hotel location was very good: next to main train station and close to bus tour stops. The hotel staff was adequate but that's about where the good part ends. Our room was on the 6th floor which meant you had to take the lift to the 5th floor walk all around the hotel (about 3 minutes walking) to another lift and then take that lift to the 6th floor and walk another 2 minutes to our room! Also, no phone in the room so if you wanted to speak with someone at the front desk, you had to walk down to them! There was no soap in the room....you had to use the shower gel as soap. There was no electric outlet in the bathroom so the hair dryer had to be used in the bedroom. Also, they claimed to have air conditioning but it blew out only air....not cold at all! We did not have electric "plugs" for our ipads and cell phones and the hotel does offer them..you have to buy them on the street. Staying at this hotel was like ordering food from an ala cart menu....you had to ask/pay for every item separately.

Excellent location close to the station and the Royal Mile and friendly enthusiastic staff. They were always willing to help and give advice about restaurants, sights, etc. They were extremely pleasant. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent, but it is extra.

"Great for getting to bus, otherwise unimpressive"
No telephone, thus no wake up call. Minimalist room, not very comfortable. Very few electrical outlets means no real way to use hair styling products (blow dryer, straightening irons, etc) anywhere near a mirror. Had to pull heavy luggage up 2 sets of stairs just to get to check in desk. No ramp at all, so if you are in a wheelchair you have to wait for a lift to get from the sunken first entry level onto the raised second level. This is a new interior so I would have thought a ramp both for wheelchairs and heavy luggage could have been designed in easily. They advertise rates as low as £59 yet for a Tuesday night we paid well over £100. It was very convenient to the Waverley Bridge and ability to catch the Airlink 100 bus back to the airport for our very early morning flight. The location is why we picked the hotel. If not for that reason, I would not recommend this hotel for the price.

Fantastic location, a stone's throw from Waverley Station. Very convenient to many great sights. Room clean and modern, nothing fancy, not too small. Maybe a bit warm at times. Reception sometimes busy but staff always courteous and helpful. Luggage storage easy. Breakfast not included but several restaurants nearby so wasn't an issue for us. Would stay here again.

"Excellent hotel close to city sites and transport"
After walking in the Highlands we arrived in Edinburgh for one day of sightseeing before flying out the next day. Motel One Royal provided exactly what we wanted, clean, quiet, good shower and a nice ambiance at a reasonable rate. The location is excellent, close to the train station and airport transport. Another plus, we were able to check in early. Would stay at this hotel again and will definitely look at Motel One when we are traveling in major cities.

I stayed at the Motel One whilst attending a wedding. The location of which was less than 5 minutes from the hotel. Another great plus is that the D100 bus from the airport makes it's last stop on Waverly bridge which is just a short distance from the hotel. The staff couldn't be nicer and allowed me an early check in. I will be staying here again should I return to Edinburgh.

"Superficial and expensive"
They only have an air flow system and the staff told us the wrong information for getting our room cooler. We had a fan and the windows open and it was still sweltering. The beds were totally stiff and the breakfast was just a continental yet they charged £9! They gave us a free breakfast for the snafu concerning our heating and they had a luggage room for us while we explored the city. Overall this hotel is absolutely not worth the price, you're better off with a guesthouse or BnB.

"A 'close' walk to the Royal Mile"
One of two stays at this hotel during a visit to Edinburgh. Very convenient to the train station and Royal Mile. Staff were friendly enough, and even offered a fan for the room to help cool it (since the hotel only offered heat in the room). Easy to walk anywhere from hotel to station, Royal Mile destinations. Advocates Close is right next to the hotel, which leads directly to the Royal Mile. Breakfast buffet was also decent (price and selection). I'd stay again.

"Always a great stay!"
This was my 2nd stay at this specific hotel, and each time I always have a wonderful time with them. Whether you're arriving by train or plane, this is the BEST location in Edinburgh. The AirLink bus from Edinburgh Airport and the Weaverly Train Station are both just a half a block from the hotel. As someone who HATES to drag their luggage...this location is perfect! The rooms are clean and efficient (but in a good way). The breakfast is also one of the best I've had. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful, and always have a smile for you. I enjoyed this hotel so much, I now always keep an eye out for a Motel One when traveling to other cities in Europe.

"Great location and all new modern interiors."
Enjoyed the hotel very much. Location was excellent, specially for us who took the bus in from the airport and back, the stop is less than a block from the hotel door. The remodeling of the hotel was excellent, love the modern bathroom. The room itself was good too. The only negative is that electrical plugs are nowhere near any table or desk, or inside bath, quite odd. The WiFi worked OK. The short walk up to the Royal Mile was an added bonus. The hotel's breakfast was quite good and even though it was always a crowded area, there was always a place to sit and the staff kept the food supplies fresh. Front Desk staff was good as well.

"Comfort, attractions and transport"
This was a nice new hotel, though hallways were austere rather than inviting. Comfortable and larger than normal for Europe, the room had a great shower. It was convenient to the major central city sights, two blocks off the Royal Mile. It was right across the street from Waverly train station. In addition to train service, that's where the airport bus (100) picks up, and it's only a short walk to the airport tram. We did the walk to the tram with luggage, no problem in about 5 minutes. We only had a half day and a night in Edinburgh, so the location was perfect.

"Okay for a 3 star hotel but not my cup of tea!"
I did realize when booked the hotel that the room only had the bare minimum but it didn't even have a closet. The television was mount to the wall so no arm extension to move it, it lined up w/ the far right side of the bed so it was barely visible from the left side of the bed. Buffet breakfast not worth paying the extra for. The location is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

"Great budget hotel without feeling like one"
We had a two day stop as part of a two week trip multiple cities in Europe. Europe is very expensive so we were keeping hotels rooms as reasonable as possible since we spent most of our time outside of our room. Budget hotels in most major European cities mean small and outdated. What a welcome surprise this hotel was while still being close by the major sites.

"Very Nice and Good Location"
First thing, it is easy to find. It is right across the street from the Waverly Bridge stop on the Airlink bus. This is also where you catch the hop-on/hop-off bus. The castle is within walking distance, though it is a climb! The Royal is just the next street over (though you have to climb about 100 steps here as well) and many restaurants and pubs are an easy walk. The hotel itself is rather nice, though one thing I didn't like was that they didn't supply regular soap. They had a hair and body gel that I guess was supposed to be good for everything and I did use it on my hands, but I'd have preferred soap. The beds are okay. Overall I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely consider it again. Very nice and great location!

The room clean and the beds comfortable. We were on the 7th floor and my only complaint was that the floor was hot, and the windows don't open very far. But the staff offered to change our room. We opted for a fan instead. It cooled sufficiently by night time, and we were out of the room all day anyway. The breakfast was very comprehensive for a continental breakfast and we chose to add it for our entire stay.

Motel One was in a perfect location for us. The train station was across the street. The bus from the airport stopped in front of the hotel. We had a short walk to the Royal MIle, Princes Street Gardens, St. Andrews Square and more. The hotel is in the modern boutique style. Our room was small, neat and clean. We overlooked a small courtyard with other rooms from the hotel looking out too. We therefore had light, but no city view. We had wifi, tea/coffee facilities, but no fridge and no phone in the room to call the front desk.
