Excellent location; pristine and comfortable room
Motel One Edinburgh - Princes could not be better located. It is central to the city and just a couple minutes walk from the train station or tram to the airport. The rooms are comfortable, fresh and clean and amazingly quiet given the location. The price was also excellent given how expensive Edinburgh accommodation can be. I am aware that some travellers may like to spread out and have many niceties so do bear in mind that this is a 3-star hotel and the rooms are utilitarian and not massive, but if you are like me and in Edinburgh to spend time in Edinburgh, it is a place to sleep and one I'd definitely book again!

The hotel is a bit dated but it’s right in the city centre and quite affordable. You get everything you need.

4/10 Fair

Sort your air-conditiong out!
There are issues with the air-conditioning in the rooms, they were very stuffy and hot and the whole experience was very uncomfortable. We couldn't open tag windows as the hotel is located in a busy corner and the noise was loud.
