Great location right next to Waverley Station. Have noticed the hotel on previous visits to Edinburgh and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation. I think the word 'Motel' suggests a poorer standard. Much bigger than it looks too, although it's a bit of a warren to get to some of the rooms.

It’s a really nice place to stay. The room is clean and in a reasonable size. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good. It’s a walking distance to church and Edinburgh castle. I’m really satisfied with Motel one. If I’m going back to Edinburgh, definitely will stay there again.

Motel One Edinburgh-Royal is a clean and comfortable hotel, very conveniently located near the train station and a great base for those wanting to explore the beauty of Edinburgh city. The beds are very comfortable, and the rooms and hallways very quiet. Staff were very helpful and efficient, and the rooms are pleasingly decorated with tartan accents.
