Motel One to debut in Edinburgh this December

7 Sep 2012 by BusinessTraveller

As reported last year (see online news April 19, 2011), German budget hotel chain Motel One will open its first UK property this December, and has confirmed plans for a flagship London hotel in 2014.

The 208-room Motel One Edinburgh-Royal hotel is located on Market Street in the Castlehill area, near to Waverley railway station and the Royal Mile.

It forms part of a 140,000 square foot mixed-use site, which also hosts offices, restaurants and residential spaces.

Commenting on the launch, CEO of Motel One Group Dieter Muller promised a “young and stylish product” and highlighted the “affordable prices and high quality design and service”.

All rooms will feature flatscreen TVs, ensuite bathrooms and air-conditioning, and free wifi will be available in the One Lounge, a combined lobby, bar and cafeteria.

A self-proclaimed “budget-design” hotel chain, Motel One Edinburgh-Royal will offer rooms starting at £69.

The chain is also set to open two further properties in Cologne and Salzburg before the end of the year.
