“Excellent budget hotel in heart of Edinburgh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

I have just returned from three days in Edinburgh and I, along with six other people stayed at the Edinburgh Central Waterloo Place Travelodge Hotel. The hotel is perfectly placed just a three or four minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Train Station which is also where the Express Buses from the airport drop you off.

We checked into our hotel at 3pm and were given a twin room which is as we had requested. The hotel is recently renovated and all areas were clean, tidy and well presented. Reception Staff knew what they were doing and were not pushy with trying to hard sell any extras such as breakfast. The rooms were clean, cheerful and contained a tv, kettle, tea and coffee and all towels etc.

The hotel is right next to Princes Mall and Rose Street and only a 3/4 minute walk from the Royal Mile which is the main 'tourist' area of Edinburgh. It really couldn't be better placed!

We paid £50 for two nights in a twin room which was an absolute bargain. When you book rooms at such a cheap price you don't tend to expect a lot however the Travelodge far exceeded what we were expecting.

Will definitely return next time we are in Edinburgh!

I was welcomed by a friendly, efficient human being who made me feel like a valued customer. I was in a double room which had the new 'Dream Bed' which was firm and ever so comfortable. I even had four fluffy pillows! There was no noise from outside. Person on duty at check out was also pleasant. I had a great stay.

Well placed and comfortable, near Waverley Station, not much noise outside. Quite close to the clubs and pubs but far enough away as not to be disturbed by the drunks after closing. As a place to crash out it was great.

Had a 2 night break at this Travelodge and I selected it due to its very central location. A very short walk from Waverley Train Station and this Travelodge is in a very central location in the Capital City.I believe that most of the bedrooms have been refurbished and I was allocated a lovely large double room which was excellent. It was a brand new bed with lovely fluffy and comfortable pillows so I had no complaints. Only slight issue was that when I checked in there was nobody at Reception and this was at 14.30pm and after a good 10 minutes a member of staff appeared. There was nobody at the reception desk when I departed but as my room was all prepaid I did not require to see anybody. I would use this Travelodge again and it was excellent value for money, so if you are lucky to get a room at a good price, then go for it.

Room Tip: Higher floor bedrooms are quieter.
