Fabulous 8.8 From 921 reviews

Motel One Edinburgh-Royal, Edinburgh
Highly Recommend!
Nice clean hotel in a perfect location. A short walk to Waverley Mall and lots of shopping but also minutes away from cobblestone streets lined with pubs, restaurants, and historical buildings including Edinburgh Castle. Pretty fun nightlife as well!

Very Good8.0
We didn’t have the view we paid for and there was no climatisation in the room so it was really hot. Other than that the staff is helpful and friendly and the location is amazing

Best location in Edinburgh.
We could not have asked for more! Excellent location in the old city next to bus and train. Very modern amenities in a historic building. Clean, friendly and comfortable.

Great second time around
Location, location, location...this is the second time I've stayed here and this stay, like the previous, was exactly what I needed. Arrived much earlier than check in and I was warmly greeted and reception staff made sure I had first available room. Staff called another business to locate an item I accidentally left behind at another business. The location was perfect for Waverly Station and the centre line between old town and new town, let alone the plethora of tour bus departures.

Very satisfactory, excellent value
Quiet,warm room and very friendly staff. Comfortable bed. We suggest grab bar in shower for safety for older, or mobility-restricted guests.
