Motel One Edinburgh-Royal
Motel 1 review.
Hotel is well situated being a short distance from the railway station. Check in was quick and friendly. The room was disappointing, very Spartan with no where to put clothes other than a few hangers on a rail. There was tea/coffee facilities but nowhere near the table they were on to plug the kettle in so it had to go on the floor. A few more furnishings would have made all the difference. This was pointed out when I checked out and was told that this would be addressed when the rooms are refurbished early next year.

Motel One Edinburgh-Royal
Amazing location, hotel needs a little updating.
Basic rooms in a decent hotel, in need of modernisation and more power sockets in the room (mine had only 2, both high up on the wall, which makes using a kettle very challenging!). Nice bathroom. Staff were pleasant and friendly, the hotel is very clean and the location is wonderful. Wifi was also a bit hit and miss.

Perfect value.
Great, great value for Edinburgh. Other hotels were looking for between a ridiculous £130 up to over £250 for night, I got this excellent hotel at value price and from now on will always be my first option. The room is smallish but the right size, that bathroom size and facilities are perfect as is the bar area. Add in a very friendly, welcoming check in experience and a hotel in a great location, you simply will not get better.
