Great hotel location a few steps to rail station.

Edinburgh Old Town in May - Delightful
Very pleasant experience all round. Next time I am in Edinburgh will stay again here. View of the Sir Walter Scott monument and Princes Street gardens in the distance but need 7th floor for that which I had.

Hope to stay here again!
They aren’t kidding when they say “convenient to Edinburgh Waverley” - I walked out of the train station and walked about a block uphill. I had a great view of New Town from my third floor city view room. Old Town was literally steps away. The area outside the hotel and all the streets and closes (alleys, of sorts) to Old Town are very well lit and I felt safe as a solo traveler. Desk staff was courteous and very knowledgeable. The room was clean and well maintained. Toiletries in the private bath (which was very well appointed) were nicely scented and not overpowering. The best feature was the complimentary left luggage - I received a check ticket for my bag and was able to leave it at the hotel on Sunday after checkout, free of charge, until my train left at 1730. It was nice spending my last day in the city without having to drag my bag around! I would definitely recommend Motel One and hope they’re available in a couple of weeks when I plan to return to Edinburgh.

Great location, super hot room
Great location, close to everything, right downtown. Room was extremely hot in February (for some reason). For this reason the stay was very uncomfortable. No central air, had to crack window and use fan to cool off the room. Why it was so hot in February I'll never know. Small rooms, but still a decent value.

Great location and hotel!
Very impressed with this reasonably valued hotel. Clean, updated, across the street from Waverly train station.
