We were put off by some of the accounts but we had a great room on the second floor and could see up Princess Street! This room had been refurbished and was excellent, just what we needed plus wifi was fine, tea and coffee supplied, the bed was really comfortable and we had a good night's sleep! They were willing...

It's a travelodge - they are fairly standard wherever you go I think. Friendly and helpful welcome at check in. We were staying in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival and the location was absolutely perfect - you are right in the centre of the Edinburgh. Room was clean and comfortable and provided a good night's sleep at the end of... More

The Waterloo Place Travelodge is just past the end of Princes St and very near the bus station. It iis ideally located for visiting the Royal Mile and the city centre. If you book early the cost is very reasonable. The only complaint I had was that the room became very warm because the window could only be opened a... More

Good location in Edinburgh.The room was small and musty. The hotel smelled musty. Reception first assigned a room knowing there was no soap in bath. I would have checked out immediately but was tired and it was a bit late. There was no phone in the room, had to pay for Internet, poor lightening. Tiny desk.

Me and a couple of friends were on our first visit to Edinburgh and booked the hotel as it was cheap and cheerful and never had any problems with Travelodge before. The location of the hotel was perfect, it was close to the train station and convenient for any tourist visiting Edinburgh. we had paid the additional £10 to check... More

Yesterday we returned from our first trip to Edinburgh and out first stay in a Travelodge. It was easily found within walking distance of Waverley Railway Station (even with a wheelchair and suitcase) although the frontage did not look anything like the picture on the website. Check in was quick and we were able to access our room straight away.... More

We booked here for the location, we did look at the reviews prior so half knew what we were getting into. We had 2 nights here. The room was basic. No alarm clock, no facecloths, no closets. The shower was odd to get on (2 taps you need to turn opposite ways), the shower was incredibly slippery and there was... More

I was impressed with the cleanliness and comfort of this centrally situated hotel. Prices were higher than is normal for Travelodge but it was the Festival and you must expect this in August. Staff were professional and helpful.

We booked this hotel on a visit for the Tattoo on a Saturday night and we did so 11 days prior to the day and was surprised by the £158 per night cost but that was all the choice we had, check in was smooth as we had learned from experience and NOT arrived prior to 3pm so no £10... More
