Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

Motel one's location was very ideal ! All attractions were within walking distance and princes street was less than 4 minutes away .. The decoration of the lobby and bar was super nice and they were available 24/7 !! The room was good but the toilet was tiny .. Can't complain about the furniture and cleaning service cause everything was shinning ..

Negative side : no phones in the rooms, no wardrobe, no dental kits, the AC was a bit complicated and hard to manage but the room was already warmed up.

Fair price, Central location and modern rooms : highly recommended

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

First time staying at this chain but was very pleasantly surprised. Located across the road from the main station, a 10 minute walk to the castle and 5 minutes to a number of shops and restaurants the location could not be better.
Relatively quick check-in process for a busy hotel. Clean and simple room but the wireless worked great, the TV was good and staff were friendly.
They have two buildings and as my room was not on the main building, getting to my room was a small trek with a big bag but a minor issue. I would recommend this hotel for both personal or business trip. Just across the way from the hotel was a great pub, The Hebrides. According to those I met there, it was the best-priced pint around and it had live music. Perfect.

A fantastic new hotel literally right next door to Waverley Station and just down the hill from the Royal Mile. The Motel One (Royal Mile) is a German chain hotel that offers great value for money and a non frills stay. The rooms are smaller than you would expect, but for the price it is fair. The mattress was to my taste (hard) but the pillows were a bit too fluffy for me. The room was spotless and the fixtures and fittings are new so it would be interesting to see what happens after a bit of wear and tare.

The service was polite welcoming and friendly, with check in only taking a few minutes.

Due to its location and price I would definitely stay here again the next time I am in Edinburgh. In my opinion, a gem of a hotel.

Staff were very friendly upon arrival and had our room available for us straight away, room was very clean. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from Waverley station and there are plenty of restaurants & shops nearby. I would definitely stay here when visiting Edinburgh again.

I have used 'Motel One' hotels previously in Munich and found them to be very clean, great locations and good value for money. This Motel One is no different. Same high standards. I would always use this chain of hotels whenever I'm on holiday. Highly recommended.
