Great location, so-so hotel
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.
