Great value for a city centre hotel

Posted 14-Oct-2014
My friend & I stayed at Motel One in Market St last Friday and my brother was staying at Motel One in Princess St. We were all very pleased with every aspect of our stay. The Reception staff not only changed my room so I could be on the same floor as my friend, but they managed to put us next door to each other. We will be returning.

Nice central hotel

Posted 11-Oct-2014
Pros: It was the location and staff.
Cons: Instuctions for the heating would be good as in my room it was tricky to work out.
Location: Central location made it good for all things to do in the city.
A warm friendly welcome at check in. Staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. My room was clean and tidy also spacious with a big bathroom and a great view. Loved the central location close to train station, buses, shops and castle and other sightseeings.

Fantastic location, very clean & comfortable

Posted 10-Oct-2014
This is a great value hotel as a base for visiting Edinburgh. It is in a lovely location in walking distance to Prince's Street, the Royal Mile, the Castle, the Art Gallery, Holyrood House and all points in between. The shuttle bus from the airport stops over the road, just outside Waverley Station. Rooms are clean, very comfortable and newly decorated.

Perfect for city centre

Posted 30-Sep-2014
Pros: Modern decor, clean modern showers. Continental breakfast! Friendly staff.
Location: Central location, next to waverley station and many city centre attractions within walking distance.
This is the third time I've stayed at this city centre hotel and it is still a pleasure. Staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. Location is perfect for city centre attractions, shopping, nightlife, just across from Waverley train station. Rooms are modern and clean and have fabulous showers. I have always had a good nights sleep and have never been disturbed by noise from outside or inside the hotel. Breakfast if paid for is also good value for money as 'help yourself' so you can eat as much or as little as you like. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying again in the future.

Okay for a 3 star hotel but not my cup of tea!

Posted 13-Sep-2014
Pros: Great location!
Cons: Better blinds to block out the light. Larger TV or mount so viewable from both sides of the bed. Install room safes.
Location: The location 2 min. from the bus & train. Two minute walk to the royal mile, Castle w/in 15 min, close to National Gallery. Several good pubs close by
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.

Excellence 1 block from the railroad station.

Posted 11-Sep-2014
Pros: Clean
Location: Center of the old town within walking distance of the castle.
We travel Europe by train. What a positive experience when you can walk one block and find a super clean Five Star hotel staffed by Five star employees

Good location

Posted 08-Sep-2014
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.
