Motel One Edinburgh-Royal, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Very Good8.0
Great location, super hot room
Great location, close to everything, right downtown. Room was extremely hot in February (for some reason). For this reason the stay was very uncomfortable. No central air, had to crack window and use fan to cool off the room. Why it was so hot in February I'll never know. Small rooms, but still a decent value.

Good Location ripped off by awful room (418)
Great Location and stayed in 5 previous Motel One's (2 Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle and other one in Edinburgh) Great location but hotel was a bit grotty once you left the main ground floor reception area and there was a lot of work going on near the bar (joinery and smell of fresh paint) Booked this one as needed to be closer to event I was attending and it was £10 cheaper for almost claimed identical room Trouble was I was given an accessible room rather than the queen one booked - pull cords everywhere, toilet that didn't flush, really small poor tv that was nailed to the wall so you couldn't access any smart options (so old and poor make surprised it worked) Complained in the morning about the room but staff member didn't care (all foreign)and just said better luck next time
