“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

the room had secondary glazing which made the room like sauna if you opened it the noise outside was to loud to sleep.the bathroom was to small, on the toilet you are squashed against the wall the shower is too small.the hotel sign is not very clear to see from any distance.

Spotlessly clean, friendly staff, all round a great stay. No cooked breakfast but plenty of options in Edinburgh .

Very well priced and location is great. No Iron in the room, but available at reception

I use this hotel regularly. Staff are always friendly and the rooms are clean. Great for the centre of Edinburgh and only a few minutes walk from Waverley Train Station. There are plenty of restaurants/takeaways nearby for food and drink and an ideal base for sightseeing. For best deals I recommend you book early!

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was lovely. The staff were all very friendly and helpful the entire stay. The room had a good television, really nice bed and a great bathroom. There was fresh tea and coffee every day and the room was kept spotless. The travelodge is situated walking distance from lots of main attractions such as the castle, museums, city centre and lots of great restaurants. I would highly recommend - exceeds expectations.

My room was spacious and spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. There was coffee and tea available a nice television and shower gel and soap in the bathroom as well as nice towels. I was able to borrow a hair dryer from reception when I needed one and the staff were very helpful at all time. 30 minutes free Wifi applied.
The hotel is perfect to visit the whole city on foot, it is 5 minutes from Waverley Edinburgh station so great if you are travelling by train.
I would recommend it and certainly use it again

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor so no street noise at all very quiet I would recommend this.

We recently stayed for 3 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. We wanted a hotel within walking distance of Waverley station and had looked at several others but felt that the costs of these outweighed the benefits so eventually settled for here. Although we have used other budget chains' hotels this is our first stay in a Travelodge.

The booking process was easy and went without a hitch as did the booking in. We found our room on the third floor adequate in size to meet our needs and it looked modern and clean. There were two pillows (one soft one hard) on the bed and the bathroom although not spacious again suited our needs. The shower was perhaps not the greatest as far as water pressure was concerned but then it is a budget hotel so what can you expect.The windows were triple glazed so outside noise despite its central position was never really a problem. Breakfast was a snack in a bag so we didn't try it so cannot comment on that but there are quite a few other establishments locally offering breakfast as varying prices so that was not really a problem.

I must admit that we both had disturbed sleep at night because we felt the room overly warm (who would expect the sun to be shining and the weather mild in Scotland in September?) but overall we had a very enjoyable stay. The room was cleaned each day with the towels replaced each time as with the tea and coffee making materials.

Room Tip: There are several floors with rooms below ground level so natural light could be an issue so this sh...

We stayed here for one night recently. First impressions were not good. There was a tatty flag hanging over the street doorway. The woman on reception was very curt and po-faced as we arrived. She looked like she had the cares of the world on her shoulders. The room was clean and tidy. We booked a family room as Travelodge doesn't have twin rooms. They should.
The family room we had consists of the main standard Travelodge bed which was fine, but the foldaway bed was hopeless. It was hard and uncomfortable. It was impossible to get a good night's sleep on it. The shower curtain had a stale smell about it, although the rest of the bathroom was clean. The overall experience was disappointing.
