Edinburgh Motel One

Motel One, the European premier budget-design hotel chain, made its promised first UK hotel opening in December at Edinburgh, just.  Very close to Waverley Station, in Market Street, customers were welcomed for the first time on 31 December 2012. (see BTN 17 September 2012).
Motel One currently has a 42-property portfolio featuring hotels throughout Germany and Austria.  Expansion plans over the next few years include a second Edinburgh hotel set to open in autumn 2013 and two London hotels, located on Commercial Road and Minories, scheduled for 2014.
Motel One Edinburgh-Royal is a conversion of original 16-18 century properties and great care has gone into conserving as much of the historic walls as possible.  The hotel interior boasts luxurious pieces such as the now classic Arne Jacobsen turquoise egg chair (which will feature a special Motel One tartan print for the Edinburgh hotel) and the distinctive Arco lamp by Achille Castiglioni.  All rooms are equipped with double beds, flat screen TV, air-conditioning and an en suite bathroom.  Free wi-fi access is available in the communal One Lounge.  The hub of the hotel, the One Lounge is a lobby, bar and cafeteria rolled into one!  iPADs are also provided upon the guests’ request. www.motel-one.com
