With rooms from just £69 a night, Motel One Edinburgh-Royal offers the perfect city-centre budget accommodation choice for visitors to the Scottish capital.
The hotel opened in 2013 and occupies a prime position on bustling Market Street, just a stone’s throw from the Waverley Railway Station and the Royal Mile. Close to Edinburgh’s shopping strip, main attractions, businesses, and popular nightlife, the hotel provides guests with a convenient and central city break base. The building is a conversion of the original 16th and 18th Century properties which once stood in its place and great care has gone into conserving as much of the historic walls as possible.
The chic hotel interior boasts luxurious accents such as the now classic Arne Jacobsen turquoise egg chair and the distinctive ARCO lamp by Achille Castiglioni. All rooms are equipped with a comfortable double bed, flat screen TV, air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout. The hotel boasts a stylish One Lounge – an ideal place to work, meet and relax after a day exploring the vibrant Scottish city.
