My husband and I will be in Edinburgh for 3 nights next year during the Fringe before our RS 13 day Scotland tour. We want to book our hotel now as we know how busy it will be and finding accommodations will be difficult. This is our second visit to Edinburgh. We stayed at a Dalkeith Road b&b last time but found it too far out from the city even with the bus. We want to stay closer to the Royal Mile this time. We looked at the Motel One (both Princes and Royal) as the price is right but there are some negative TA reviews - Royal is like a rabbit warren and the rooms at Princes are hot and stuffy even in the winter with the windows open. We have also looked at B+B where the tour ends but it is $600 more. Have any of you had experience with either Motel One? I don’t really trust the TA reviews. Other hotel suggestions? Thanks.
