I think this is probably one of those hotels where the price that you paid for your room is going to directly affect the view you have of it. For me, I felt like the £50 a night for a Friday and Saturday was not really that bad at all. I stayed in a twin room so really I paid... More

This hotel is fine for a budget hotel. The location is great. Everything else is you-get-what-you-pay-for. Our stay there was unfortunately at an extravagant cost due to Hogmanay (and our alternative accommodation cancelling 6 weeks out so we didn't have much choice). Without an event on I think the cost would be more acceptable. The only gripe I had was... More

We booked this hotel for 2 nights for its location as it was the closest one to the royal mile that we could get at the time. Although you still had to walk a fair way to the Mile it was ok as Edinburgh is so visually exciting. It was mid August, the Fringe festival was on and it was... More

I spent two nights here in November 2014. In general, my stay was fine. Easy to drag a suitcase to and from the train station and find my way to the Royal Mile. Pros Excellent location. Reasonable price. Clean room. Cons The free wi-fi is ONLY in the lobby and never worked while I was there. I commiserated with other... More

The host is lovely! She was ver friendly and to me, that is very important. Even more important than the room. Okay,my room was not the best, even kind of depressing, but I think it is a fair price, given the location. I paid £37 for a single room, English breakfast included. The only negative thing for me was the... More

We were staying on a trip to Scotland with my mother, who is in her eighties. When asking if they had a room a ground level, they did not, so she ended up on the first floor with us on the second floor, which was not great in terms of mobility, particularly since there is no lift. Rooms were as... More

After reading the reviews on here after I booked I was worried what we would find, however it was absolutely fine. We were in room 5 towards the back of the building in a twin room. The bathroom was very small and smelt a bit musty but was fine after we left the door open when we went out. The... More
