First of all the staff are amazing. So friendly and always up for a chat. It’s perfectly situated, not far from the royal mile. There is parking at the back of the hotel, it’s very expensive but it is free with a blue badge if you speak to the staff and they can register you. The hotel was quite quiet and I didn’t hear any noise from other rooms or outside. We stayed in an accessible room, (room 3) it had 2 single beds and they weren’t very comfortable. The worse thing was the lack of plug sockets, or rather the lack of sockets that I could use. The 2 main sockets had the trim from the desk right up to the bottom and you literally couldn’t get a plug into them. The only other options was where the heater was plugged in (not an option to remove as it was freezing cold) or the double socket that the tv was plugged into which was very difficult to get to. There were usb sockets next to the bed but that didn’t help as I have medical equipment that I need to use overnight that has to sit next to my bed and has to be plugged in. This is essential equipment that keeps me breathing while I’m asleep. We ended up buying an extension cable but that was really dangerous as I am disabled and I then had to contend with a trailing wire across the room which I fell over and sent my very expensive medical equipment flying. This isn’t safe in a normal room but for an accessible room it’s very dangerous. There was also a leak coming from somewhere which meant that the carpet all around the bathroom area was wet. All these things were reported to the staff at the time. The stay was ok and I’m sure a normal room would be fine but as I’m disabled I can only review from my personal perspective.

This hotel is in a great location and whilst it is in a very busy city centre, it was well soundproofed and there was very little noise from outside. It was very clean and the staff were very friendly. Overall it was great value for money, especially for a city like Edinburgh.

Great hotel in perfect location can't believe I've not found it before now. Walking distance to Royal Mile, Waverly station Princess Street and The Playhouse. Staff really helpful and welcoming. Rooms not overly big but perfect for a night or two stay. Room really clean, decent shower. Hotel was really quiet all through the night (im a light sleeper) Breakfast a bit of a letdown, plentiful, but bacon, scrambled egg and sausages really dried out and mushrooms practically raw.Bit of a letdown because I always look forward to Travelodge buffet breakfast after a night out in Edinburgh. :( But all in all would definitely book this hotel again, just not with breakfast

Hotel in fantastic central location Rooms, clean and beds comfortable Great value for money Friendly staff. Stayed for 3 nights and our room was cleaned every day. Tea & coffee facilities replenished daily. On-site bar & restaurant available although we did not use it on this visit. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends & family and will very likely return in future.

The woman on the reception clearly did not want to be there, was not bothered that our key cards weren’t working for the 10th time and spoke to us very inappropriately. She was loud and shouted at us from across the reception area in front of other customers waiting to check in… embarrassing for her.

Impolite, not helpful, rude. Could have told us nicely, but penalising us for not knowing about it. Asked us to stay elsewhere instead of providing solutions to continue to stay here. Rudely pointed to us of the notice when asked if we could store our luggage there. As if we dont know how to read, we were just asking for more enquiries.

Having stayed here a few years ago my expectations were low, however I was totally wrong. The hotel has been modernised with an additional set of double glazed windows added to each room - this made so much difference. The room was clean and comfortable- bathrooms are not perfect but the shower was warm and powerful. Breakfast was decent and good value for money. The hotels location is ideal to explore from and felt safe and secure.

Stayed for four nights. The hotel is ideally situated, just around the corner from The Royal Mile High Street. Local attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, National Scottish Museum and The Real Mary King Close are walking distance. A lovely pub called The World's End is a stone throw away and its dog friendly. I advised making a reservation as its a small pub and people were turned away. A few buses go to Edinburgh Zoo. The x18 stops near Waverly Station on Princes Street and a 31 stops outside the Scottish Museum. A single costs £1.80. There is a tram service operating every 7 minutes from the airport to St Andrew's Square which costs £6.50 for a single. St Andrew's is a 10 minute walk to the hotel.There is also a coach service that goes from Princes Street to the airport. A single costs £4.50. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Breakfast offers a variety and has vegetarian and vegan options. I will advise not to add the breakfast option when booking a room. Breakfast costs £9.75/£10 and on some mornings I wasn't hungry but felt obliged to eat breakfast there as I already paid for it. They offer cereal and fruit but its not worth nearly £10. If you choose not to add breakfast but on the day you want it you can go to the bar next to reception and pay for it then. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Shower gel and hand wash is provided as well as tea and coffee facilities.The shower was hot and good pressure. The shower cubicle is slightly small. I will advise to get a shower cap if you don't want to get your hair wet as there isn't much space to avoid the water from touching your hair.Stayed on the 2nd floor. During the night the window was open and I could hear cars throughout the night. It wasn't a major issue and it does state on their website that the hotel is in the city centre so you should expect some noise. Dog friendly. Will return.

My partner and I went to Edinburgh for city break and stayed in Travelodge for two nights. The experience couldn't have been better. It was 30 quid per night, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and had everything we could possibly need, and the breakfast was very good. Another great thing was the fact we could leave our bags after check out time and collect them in the evening, before heading back home.
