Centre of Edinburgh

Posted 24-May-2015
Pros: Location excellent for business, shoppers or tourists.
Cons: A wee biscuit in the room to eat with the drinks would be nice.
Location: Easy reach - 5 minutes walk to Princes Street shops, Royal Mile, Castle, St Giles, Art Galleries, monuments and 2 minutes walk to open top bus tours.
Great location just a few minutes walk from Waverley Railway Station and Princes Street. Also a short walk up the hill to the Royal Mile with lots of eating places, cafes, shops and places of interest. Hotel room 313 was very quiet even at the weekend when the motel was full. Very clean with amply supply of tea, coffee and milk for making drinks in the room. Great shower in the ensuite. Highly recommend. It is the second time that I've chosen to stay there

Sehr zentral zur Royal Mile und direkt am Bahnhof!

Posted 24-May-2015
Pros: Zentrale Lage
Cons: Das Frühstück günstiger anbieten, damit es zum Hotelkonzept passt.
Das gute ist ja, dass man Motel One kennt, wenn man in nur einem irgendwann einmal war. Somit hat es uns in diesem Sinne weder positiv noch negativ überrascht. Verglichen mit anderen Hotels vom Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis in dieser Lage absolut perfekt. Der Bahnhof sowie die Bushaltestelle für den AIRLINK-Bus zum Flughafen (günstigste Möglichkeit für 7,50 GBP Return-Ticket) liegt direkt gegenüber. Die Royal Mile ist nur wenige Fußminuten entfernt, so dass man auch eine Menge Möglichkeiten zum Essengehen hat. Das Frühstück für 9,50 GBP war uns zu teuer. Da gibt es weit bessere Möglichkeiten - z.B. frische Sandwiches von Sainsbury, Tesco, o.ä. Ach ja, und nach Glasgow muss man wirklich nicht!!!

Great location

Posted 22-May-2015
Pros: Location, price, staff
Cons: Not really sure I could do anything else.
Location: location is on Market st. It's proximity to a number of attractions is great. The castle, Prince Street gardens, the Scottish museum of art.
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

Posted 17-May-2015
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.

Nice hotel close to Royal Mile and Castle

Posted 17-May-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Real coffee in the room. Luggage racks. Wake up service. Lower price
Location: Very close to the Royal Mile and restaurants. The Hop on Hop off bus is just across the street
The hotel is ok but it is scarce in furnishings. There is no place for anything except the floor. The only way to get a wake-up call is to try and access an alarm on the TV. The staff are marginally helpful but are not aware of services in the area. One knew nothing of the airport bus. This hotel is very expensive for what you get. For the price one should get more than instant coffee in the room.

Very nice central hotel

Posted 06-May-2015
Pros: comfortable, large room, friendly staff
Cons: I found the pillows a little soft and had to ask for another one. Other than that it was perfect.
Location: Just a quick walk from the train station and up the hill to all the main attractions.
We had a great stay here. It was clean, comfortable, the staff were super nice - really was perfect. Highly recommend.

Decent hotel, great location

Posted 04-May-2015
Pros: The location and staff
Cons: The room was nice, but nothing to write home about.
Location: Right in the centre of the city - couldn't ask for a better location.
Nicely decorated hotel just two minutes away from both Princes Street and the castle. The fire alarm went off during one of the nights and the staff were exceptionally helpful, handing out blankets and answering everybody's questions.
