New Hotel

Posted 21-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, new room, comfortable bed
Cons: More electrical outlets and phones in the rooms
Location: near the train station and the Royal Mile. Restaurants close also
I arrived too early to check in, but the person on the front desk found me a room anyway. The problem with the check in seemed to be technical. Their system was having problems with Amex, so after a bit of aggravation and a delay, I checked in with another credit card. The room was very nice, clean, bright, even though it was an interior room, the bed was comfortable. The only problem was the lack of electrical outlets! I already knew that there were no phones in the rooms. That actually turned out to be a real problem for me. I needed to call home every day. The costs on my pay as you go phone really added up, so in the end the lower cost of the room was not worth it. For that reason, I most likely would not stay there again.

Excellent location

Posted 20-Apr-2015
Could not fault it for service, cleanliness, location & value for money. Had accessible room so little more spacious, on 6th floor so very quiet. Overall ambience really good for so-called budget hotel. Breakfast excellent & although self service, staff could not do enough for you. Second trip & would not hesitate to stay again

well priced and positioned hotel

Posted 04-Apr-2015
Pros: Position, cleanliness, comfortable bed
Location: Central position
Excellent position, 2 minutes walk from Waverley train station and 5 minutes to the Royal Mile, with bars, cafes and shops as soon as you walk out of the front door. The hotel and room were spotlessly clean and the staff were very helpful. Even though check in time is 3 p.m., our room was ready when we arrived at 1.40 p.m. We will definitely stop here next time we visit Edinburgh.

Ideal location

Posted 31-Mar-2015
Pros: Decor and cleanliness of hotel and rooms, and friendliness of staff. Lovely hot chocolate and cappucinos served in the bar/lounge.
Location: Brilliant location for good choice of restaurants and cafes, and visiting the castle and shops.
Really good location for Waverley Train Station / exploring Old Town, aswell as being handy for all the shops. Hotel has very nice decor and room was perfectly adequate for our one night stop over. Couldn't really work out the heating but was grateful the room wasn't too stuffy like most hotels.

Always a great stay!

Posted 02-Mar-2015
Pros: Nice clean room, HOT shower, a great selection of TV channels, great breakfast selection, nice and friendly staff, centrally located in Edinburgh.
Location: It's located half a block from Weaverly Train Station on the Old Town side of Edinburgh. Walking distance to all the sites in Edinburgh.
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.

Nice location

Posted 02-Mar-2015
I liked the hotel. It's modern and looks nice. The first room they put us was smelling as fresh paint, but when we told them they changed us to another. I would stay again. It's close to the Royal Mile and you can do everything walking.
