ok central hotel

Posted 25-Jan-2015
Pros: happy for you to leave bags when you check out in case you have shopping etc to do
Cons: see above
Location: great location near train station
had stayed here before a few months ago and my room was fine, stayed here with my wife on friday night and the room had a few issues. firstly there was no plug near the table where the kettle was...my option was to move it and place it on the floor next to the bed (only plug it could use as the other one on the wall was too high up) - hardly safe or practical. The receptionist option was to give me an extension lead!!! EVERY hotel i stayed in across the world that had a kettle had a plug next to it pillows are way to soft and a double bed with 2 single duvets seemed a bit strange to me

Excellent hotel, very central.

Posted 23-Jan-2015
Stayed for 3 nights jan 2015. Got bus from airport which stopped 1minute away from hotel (train station just across the road). Princes St gardens outside front door so very central! Beautiful hotel, well decorated. Rooms great, clean and well equipped with tea/ coffee facilities, hairdryer, tv etc. Beds are very comfy too. Rooms could do with a few more clothes hangers and some hair conditioner but overall an excellent hotel!

liegt sehr zentral, super mit Kindern

Posted 06-Jan-2015
Liegt sehr zentral, was speziell für Stadturlaube mit Kindern ganz super ist. Parkgarage mit 20% Ermäßigung ca. 10 Gehminuten Entfernung. Gewohnt gutes Service von Motel One. Zimmer 425 ist schon luxuriös groß. Alle Angestellten sind gut gelaunt und hilfsbereit - einfach wunderbar! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und sind Motel One Fans und Wiederholungstäter.

Perfect for a short city stay

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Great location and basic room was an excellent size. Nice bathroom, comfortable bed. Only two complaints - floors were very creaky and the room was far too hot.

Really good hotel

Posted 05-Jan-2015
We stayed here 3 nights and it was our first time in Edinburgh so we wanted somewhere central for efficient tourism, but at a reasonable price. This hotel fit the bill. It was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The only problem we had was that the flush in our bathroom broke on the last night at 18:30 and they could not fix it as they had no onsite maintenance so we had to move room. Our room had no view and people were able to look in if we didn't have the curtains drawn. Nevertheless, we would recommend it.

Great location

Posted 22-Dec-2014
Great location, very central to all tourist spots and transport. Quiet room despite central location. The staff were very pleasant. Hotel was very basic but comfortable. A minor thing...we would have liked some soap in the bathroom to wash our hands.

Very pleasantly surprised

Posted 16-Dec-2014
Pros: Overall cleanliness and caring staff. (Good training).
Cons: A little more 'interest' could be added to corridors to enhance the approach to the plain rooms.
Location: Great location within a few yards of Waverley Station. So much to do in Edinburgh, not enough space to list here. Just try it.
Booked to stay here on a Saturday night. Unlike other Edinburgh hotels a 2 night stay wasn't mandatory over the weekend. Having stayed in the Holiday Inn the previous night (with colleagues), I decided to move closer to Waverley Stn. Have watched this hotel being 'done up' each time I've come to Edinburgh and was keen to see what it was like and am pleased to say I wasn't disappointed. I had a single room at the back so it was quiet; plenty of space for one, lovely bathroom. Some previous guest had spilled something down the wall next to the table and the stain hadn't been removed. Otherwise I would sum up: Great staff, lovely welcome; meandering impersonal corridors creating rather a severe approach to rooms. Rooms, again basic but more than adequate for an overnight stay. Bed and bedding good. Price very good, compares well, if not better, than other Edinburgh hotels of this standard. Minor complaint, 3 out of 4 of the UHT milks provided on the drink tray was sour. Could've spoken to reception but it wasn't that much of a problem as I had soft drinks with me. Great location, lovely staff, nice welcome and cosy room.

Excellent location

Posted 10-Dec-2014
Pros: Everything, bar lovely. Very simple snack menu but extremely nice!
Location: Very near to train station, no taxi required. Great for bus stops to sightsee,visit the zoo or Leith etc.
So easy and convenient for train station and sightseeing in Edinburgh. The rooms were so quiet and peaceful. Only drawback is if you have rooms in Cockburn Street annexe, they are quite a walk from reception through a maze of corridors but it is well signed and worth the walk.
