The staff at the Motel One Edinburgh-Royal were very friendly and always willing to assist anything we needed during our stay. The location of the hotel was super convenient for the price; it was walkable distance to everything in the Old Town. We loved our time in Edinburgh!

The staff were extraordinarily helpful. I would recommend the hotel entirely on that basis. But the location is also fantastic (including very near the train station), and the rooms are cute, if slightly maddening.
