Best for On a budget - Expert review of Travelodge Waterloo Edinburgh
This brand is everywhere and from £19 a night you really can't go wrong. This is a superb location for those wanting budget accommodation in Scotland's capital city. There are no surprises here but the hotel, being so shiny and new after opening in August 2010, is incredible value.
A continuation of Princes Street, the main street, it couldn't be better. On your doorstep are shops, restaurants, bars and the castle. It is a minute's walk from The Balmoral Hotel, which is about £200 a night.
Rooms are small but clean and funcitonal. Crips white sheets, good towels, splashes of colour and modern, IKEA-esque furnishing. Each room has a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and you can get ironing boards and extras from reception. The hotel makes a point of not supplying toiletries (at this cost they would only be cheap and nasty) but they do sell a good selection of stuff at reception.
Usual large souless gathering area - you are here to go out and explore the city not lounge about inhouse so not important,
No facilities at all for food and drink inhouse but you have a huge selection on your doorstep.
They have a couple of vending machines in reception but failry unexciting as you can imagine.
Can recommend a great breakfast just round the corner on Broughton Street at Urban Angel, The Bakehouse or NewTown Deli.
None to speak of.
Efficient, friendly what you might expect.
Those on a budget who want somewhere to rest their weary head after the end of a long, busy day; whether business or pleasure, this value is hard to beat.
Average room rate is £19. Need I say more?
