Super friendly staff. Fantastic location, across the road from the train station (but you can’t see or hear the trains) , really good continental breakfast. Large, clean room. No wasteful mini shampoos etc. which is good to see. Would go back, would recommend.

Very good location on Princes St beside Waverley Station and buses. Easy to walk to many things in beautiful Edinburgh. Staff were professional and pleasant, especially at 5am when we needed a cab to airport. Simple rooms but well planned space and comfortable bed. Bathroom was good with excellent shower. Fantastic pub with great food right beside the hotel entrance on side street off Princes St. Good hotel value.

All the highlights so close

Pros: Great service at the front desk. Lovely clean room. Close to Edinburgh's highlights.
Just wanted an overnight hotel close into the centre of Edinburgh so we could see some city highlights before flying out next morning. Motel One in Princes Street was perfect!
