I recently stayed at the newly opened Motel One on Princess Street, and had a very positive overall experience. The hotel is a little difficult to find because the entrance is on a side street a few yards off Princess St.. Once you get past the entrance, you will be greeted with a refreshingly modern lobby and a very friendly staff. The staff were fabulous helping us plan our walking routes and dining plans daily. The location is convenient for walking to the Waverly Bridge, Waverly Train Station, and the Royal Mile. We walked almost everywhere this past week, except for a visit out to the Royal Yacht.
The hotel opened this Spring, and there are a few things to be worked out, but don't let that keep you from staying here. The price and the location make up for the little things missing. You need to know the hotel is not air conditioned so a lower room may be more comfortable, and the staff will provide a fan. The other things noted missing in the room were a nightstand with alarm clock and telephone, an outlet in the bathroom for shaving and hair drying, limited storage for clothing, a shelf in the shower for shampoo, and last but not least a bar of soap.
