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

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
