Location is very central and thus convenient for visiting downtown. The Airlink buses which go from the airport to downtown get you a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel, so it's also convenient to get to the airport. I was traveling alone to a wedding, first time in Edinburgh, and booked this last minute before checking the (pretty poor on... More

Mould on the walls, Bars on the basement windows.Filthy floors. We were given basement rooms I presume due to the Ryder Cup Payment was required in advance at £130 per night. I can see why now. I have never seen such a disgusting hotel

Diabolical. Never again. Cheap and central, true, but: no lift, no toilet or running water in room (toilet and shower on the landing, to be shared between 5 rooms), not even remote control for the telly (!),horrible furniture, wi-fi only in (very small) hall, etc. It's not really a hotel, more like a youth hostel. If that's what you're looking... More

Staff nice. Rooms were not cleaned in the 8 days we stayed. We had to ask to get clean towels every day. Even though they responded with towels they never picked up the dirty ones nor did they vacuum the room. We lodged with them 3 years ago a good experience. The Scottish breakfast was excellent then. Potatoes Bacon, mushroom... More

Booked through one of those price comparison sites. The location is brilliant, right next to the bus station (albeit behind it) and 3 mins walk to the Omni Centre. Princes Street is very close by too. The staff are very warm, friendly, helpful and professional. I really liked them. There is wifi, but it only really works in the reception... More

This hotel is conveniently located near the last stop of the city tram. It is easily accessible from the airport and also located a short walk from the train station and Old Town. The room was basic but clean. We had a room on the front side and it was pretty loud at night. We did not pay the additional... More

Although York House Hotel is very conveniently situated it is overpriced and breakfast is not included! Décor was very tired and furniture very old and mismatched, net curtains needed a wash and the curtains were hanging off the wall at one end.. We had the triple room and I felt like Queen Victoria, beds were comfortable and clean. However, there... More

York House is very conveniently situated and within walking distance to most of the sights in Edinburgh and good if you're coming by train. The place looks like it has seen better days as there are some wear and tear around the hotel and in the rooms. Service is efficient. Overall, it is fair value for the price we paid,... More

York House is a nice place to stay for travelers on a budget. It is close to everything and only a short cab ride from Waverly Station. I was only there to sleep so the size of the room was not a bother. There is a TV but with all of Edinburgh outside who wants to sit in and watch... More
