Worst stay EVER! The place is literally crumbling down! The only spot where you get Wi-fi is in their ridiculously small lobby (ie the pictures attached). We got a room in the basement with hardly any light which was very loud because it gave directly on the street so BRING EAR PLUGS if you want to sleep! The Bathroom was... More

The beds are soft, the tile in the bathroom is lumpy, the carter is like scratchy felt, and housekeeping is poor. There were no amenities given for the bathroom except a little bar of soap. The beds weren't made daily, fresh towels are only given every three days, but there were not any fresh bed linens given in a four... More

I stayed at the Place in Edinburgh last week and found the location ideal and the hotel very clean. The staff was very helpful and kind. Breakfast was filling and offered many selections. I would highly recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for my recent Christmas night out when I attended the Edinburgh playhouse. My room was extremely spacious, with large comfortable beds and well presented bathroom facilities. I had a dinner within my booking and the food was delicious. A modern twist on festive food including cauliflower soup, duck breast and fabulous sticky toffee pudding. Breakfast... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October, 2011, whilst the renovations were occurring, and found no problems. Was a bit tricky finding the place, due to lack of signage, but once we did, everything was fine. Due to the renovations, reception was run out of one of the rooms, but we had no problems with this. As our room was... More

This b&b has received mixed reviews and I suspect your experience will depend greatly on your expectations and how much you pay for a room. Not booking particularly far in advance, I got my single room for £37, without a bathroom and excluding breakfast. It was clean and as comfortable as I'd expect at that price and the service was...

My partner and I stayed here for New Year and the accomodation and service were excellent. The staff could not have been more helpful, the room was fantastic and the Hotel bar was well stocked and reasonably priced. The Hotel was close to the main areas and within easy walking distance of everything. Our room was at the top of... More
