Fabulous 8.8 From 908 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
High quality & great value
Great place, EXTREMELY good value for money. The room was clean and comfortable, check in a breeze, staff was friendly & professional. They have a gorgeous common area with a bar that is open late and well patronized (but not loud), which is perfect for a nightcap after a long day touring. We parked our car for a budget rate a few blocks away and it was an easy walk (not too hilly :) ). I'd pick this place as my first choice when traveling to Edinburgh again.

See you next time!
Stay at Motel One Royal every time I visit Edinburgh if they have available rooms. They never let me down. So handy for sightseeing and shopping and staff cannot do enough for you.On the 7th floor this time and the views were amazing,..right over Princes Street and gardens and all the way over the river to Fife!

Lovely hotel in fantastic location
The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is right in the centre with Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mike, Holyrood, New Town, Old Town, all within minutes walking distance. Edinburgh Station is 3 minutes walk away and 5 mins from buses. The room was airy and clean. Safe and hairdryer in room. Good for a short stay.

Very good 8.0
Beautiful hotel, love the decor. Had lovely room but found the bed to be uncomfortable, especially the pillows. Disappointed that there was no iron and could have had better toiletries.
Abbey, gbFamily trip
Good 6.0
Friendly staff, and clean, we felt it was a bit basic to what we’re used to and as we’d picked a room with a view we looked out over princes street gardens which made it quite noisy during the night with Waverley station, and the road outside. The location is very central for both old and new town.
