Fabulous location and great value

Posted 06-Dec-2016
Pros: The value for money, clean and quiet rooms and its fabulous location.
Cons: Greater provision of power points in the bedroom - two is just not enough these days.
Location: In the heart of the city centre - 2 minutes walk from both the Old Town and Princes Street and directly across the road from Edinburgh Waverley.
A clean and well presented budget hotel in the heart of the city, right next to the rail station and a short walk to both the new and old towns of Edinburgh. The reception staff were really lovely and very helpful, upgrading me to a room with a view. The room I had was spacious, bright and spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed and a well appointed shower room. For such a central location it was also fantastically well insulated against noise and so very quiet indeed. Whilst the free WIFI was fast and reliable, one slight downside is that the room had only two power outlets / sockets and the position of these made them difficult to use with a laptop. Breakfast options appear limited (and perhaps a little pricey) so I chose to take breakfast at one of the many other places to eat near the hotel. Overall, great value and a great choice.

Perfect location for central Edinburgh

Posted 27-Nov-2016
First visit to Edinburgh for a graduation. Wanted central location at a good price. Didn't take breakfast option, as plenty of eating places around. Staff friendly & helpful. Room, although not huge, had everything we needed. Modern, comfortable & clean. Will definately stay here when we visit Edinburgh again.

Exactly what was needed.

Posted 24-Nov-2016
Staff were nice and helpful. Hotel is right next to everything we needed. And close to the station. (No noise from the station at all) Was helpful that they could keep hold of our luggage after we had to be out of our room too.

Hotel Very Easy To Find

Posted 24-Nov-2016
Pros: Cleanliness, nice and quiet. Superb location for everything if you want it all in walking distance :)
Cons: Room with view description. If a room is described as having a view then it should have.
Location: Spot on location, less than 5 minutes walk from Waverley Station. Everything in walking distance a+++++
Hotel dead easy to find, less than 5 minutes walk from Waverley Station. Clean and very pleasantly surprised. The photos on here don't do it justice. I must point out that we paid for a room with a "view" and upon check in were told we were given one, upon seeing the room it was very nice indeed and quiet (until we had noisy neighbours), the view was well disappointing. We were to the side of the hotel and had a glimpse of the roof of Waverley station (if you stood right in the corner by the bathroom). However as we weren't really staying in the room that much other than to sleep it wasn't really too much of an issue but it must be noted. The hotel staff on check out were top notch and were apologetic. Can't really fault this hotel other than my little niggle. If you book a room with a view make sure you get one!! I would still stay here again though :)

Pay the extra for a room with a view - no regrets!

Posted 16-Nov-2016
We are travelling the U.K. for two weeks and this hotel was our cheapest. We had very low expectations of the hotel and chose it simply based on location. The hotel is kitty corner to the train station and walking distance to the New Town as well as the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. When we walked into our room, our jaws may have dropped! We had a corner room which was huge overlooking the train station as well as the Old Town. For a budget hotel, it's worth spending a little extra to get a view. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city! One thing we thought was overpriced was the breakfast. We walked two minutes down the street and got breakfast for half the price each morning.

Great location, so-so hotel

Posted 09-Nov-2016
We stayed at Hotel One on our last night in Scotland. Hotel One is in a fantastic location, being very close to Waverly Station and just a block or two down from the Royal Mile. That said, this hotel was odd. We were given a handicap accessible room on the 7th floor that had a fantastic view but that had, quite possibly, the worst toilet ever. It simply did not flush. The floor in the bathroom was so creaky. Not sure how that is possible with a tiled floor, but I thought for sure I was waking up the floor beneath us every time we went into the bathroom, it was that loud. The oddest part though was that there was no phone in our room. Which mean, no way to call the front desk. Which means how do they notify you of an emergency. Our room was so stuffy when we arrived, and a brochure in the room said to ask for a fan, as the room did not appear to have central air. Okay, sounds good...except, you no phone in the room means you cannot call and ask them. Nope. You have to go down and talk to the front desk. Just not overly convenient. That said, the location was wonderful. There was a great little coffee shop about a half block up that we popped into and had tea and cake in. For a single night in Edinburgh it was fine. It was affordable, but it would not be my first choice when staying in Edinburgh again.
