Have used this hotel on three occasions over the last three years and note that the prices have risen astronomically; from £49 to £59 and now to an eye watering £87 for one Friday night. I say eye watering because you do not get much for your pound. It is ideally located for the centre of Edinburgh and OK, rooms are pleasantly decorated, clean and well furnished. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided. Beds are comfortable and the bathroom does what a bathroom should do but surely £87 merits more than one tiny bottle of hand wash/shower wash / shampoo. Staff on duty appears to consist of one receptionist who always seems to be away from her post. Perhaps she is expected to be a multi tasker? Out of curiosity I have checked the latest price for a Friday night and although the website suggests a room is available for £49, on taking the booking enquiry further it shoots up to £109. Travel Lodge, and its purple badged competitor, you know the one I mean, the one which Lenny Henry tries to tell us we can get a room for £19, (£119 in reality) are having a laugh. Stay at the Travel Lodge Waterloo Place if you must but don’t expect much for your money.

The kettle in my room spontaneously combusted. I am not talking blowing a fuse - I am talking about burning and smoking. The window was locked so I couldn't clear the smoke which was a bit frightening and when I reported it the staff just shrugged and gave me a new kettle. Possibly the worst customer service experience I have ever had!

We stayed here for just one night as a party of 4 in two rooms. We had early checkin booked on one of the rooms so could access it from 12 and wouldn't have to lug our cases around with us. We turned up at 9.30 (early flight) and asked if we could leave our cases there. Because they had rooms ready the very helpful young chap at the desk let us check in to a room at 9.30. We returned at 3 to check in to the other room and he had arranged this to be next door to the first one.
The next day (Sunday) we had to leave by 12 but again didn't want to bring our cases with us. We were able to leave our cases with them until we left for our flight (picking them up around 6) saving us a locker fee at the bus station. I don't think leaving luggage, (or super early checkin) is a guaranteed service but we were impressed with the willingness of the staff to help us any way they could.
The rooms were clean and comfortable as one would expect and the location, a short walk from waverley station, fantastic, right in the centre where we wanted to be. I'd definitely stay here again.

I have just returned from a 2 night stay & would definitely be happy to stay again in the future. The central location for exploring Edinburgh is perfect. I visit Edinburgh a few times a year & in the past have stayed 5* , this was a last minute trip & booked this due to lack of availability elsewhere at reasonable prices. This definitely taught me all I need is a comfortable bed (slept extremely well) and a clean room/bathroom, which it was & the staff were lovely...that said, a small bar of soap in addition to the shower gel supplied would be appreciated but hey, there are tea & coffee making facilities in room, so for the price, great value. It is truly a 'no frills' operation so expect & accept that & hopefully you will be happy :)

We stayed here 05-07 May 2014. We were pleasantly surprised with the big family room assigned to us. It was a corner room with a nice view and lots of windows. The traffic outside didnt bother us. Plus the location was perfect! Very near Waverly train station and walking distance to the royal mile. A small shopping mall nearby. Staff was great! Only complaint was , no breakfast buffet like other Travelodge hotels we stayed in.
