“Ideal location for a city break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

The Travel Lodge offers a clean and tidy hotel with a courteous and efficient staff. It has a central location, good for the old town, Scottish Parliament and university. All this for a very competitive price.

Stayed at the Travel Lodge Edinburgh Central on a recent trip to Edinburgh. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station so perfect location for anyone travelling by train.
The room is basic but comfortable and very clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast is available at the hotel however suggest you get early as it proves popular with most guests. We ate in the Restaurant on one occasion and found the food to be of decent quality and reasonable price.
Would stay here again if he visited Edinburgh.

Excellent location just out of city centre. Nice & quiet but within 5 mins walk of Waverley station.Excellent staff & pre-paid breakfast excellent value. Free wi-fi in lounge area almost non-existent but didn't use wi-fi in rooms which you have to pay for! Would recommend to anyone wanting great value

We went here as a family booking three rooms which were clean and comfortable with new beds in all of our rooms we had problems with the toilet flush which was resolved but our room had an odour of drains in the toilet.
Our daughters rooms were both OK and the odour was not too much of a problem as we kept the door shut as much as possible.
The location is excellent being ver handy for the city and the High St.and being within a five minute walk from Waverly station is really good there is also an excellent Indian restaurant directly opposite the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The breakfast was better than we have had at some much more expensive hotels.
We go to Edinburgh regularly and had not noticed this travelodge on previous visits but now we are aware of it we will visit again.

This is a perfect place to stay for a weekend in Edinburgh. The rooms are basic but very clean just like any hotel room. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The two guys on reception Martin and Sam were so helpful when we couldn't find a restuarant on Saturday night. Anything you needed they were very helpful. The hotel is near the royal mile and also close to the pubs, 3 sisters, espionage, ect. The hotel isn't noisy. It has a bar an all. I would get breakfast up the street and there is lovely cafes about.. Its perfect for a weekend stay with friends in Edinburgh.

Hotel very typical of travelodge, our room was basic but clean, walls very thin though so be prepared to be away very early. Good location, walking distance to most attractions.

Only problem was security staff - when we arrived home one night, another guest stole my coat in front of security, I tried to get it back from the guest who had it and security just laughed and watched, when I complained it was treated as a joke. Very disappointed with travelodge as a company! So be aware of your possessions!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor which was perfect for keeping an eye on the car. I guess rooms higher...

I love the Travelodge brand, and the clean, functional budget hotel services they provide.
This location is great, just downhill from the Canongate.
The hotel is big, with 5 floors of 30 ish rooms. It has a bar and restaurant, which offers evening meals, a breakfast buffet (which is very reasonably priced at around £7 and tasty) and 24 hr snacks.
My room was clean and warm, and additional glazing on the windows minimises traffic noise.
The only downside was the shower, which had some deep down blockage that meant the shower tray filled with water after 90 seconds. I've encountered this problem in Travelodges before, and it's very annoying!
The bed (a new one) is soooo comfy and lovely clean crisp white sheets.
I'd visit again.
