Clean, comfortable room. Bed huge. Staff friendly. Attended party in hotel which was equally good. Only drawback was the ding ding of the trams outside window, but that is Edinburgh councils fault, not the hotel.

The location (only 2 blocks from the Waverly train station and main street) and service (friendly reception and help pointing out local attractions and carrying luggage up the stairs) are great as other reviewers have pointed out, but I feel it was rather overpriced given the disrepair of the facilities and the lack of nightlife. The plumbing was old and... More

We stayed here September 7 & 8. This hotel is perfectly situated. It is about 1/2 block from the Bus Station and there is a tram right outside the door that goes directly to/from the airport. It is also within walking distance to everything. I don't think you could pick a more central hotel. They also have a little bar... More

Despite the warmth of the staff I was disappointed at the poor state of repair of this old hostel, especially when set against the £100 a night hotel prices. Yes, it was during the festival, but come on! The room was clean, I'll grant you. I'll also concede that it is handy to both the tram, it's a straight run... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Check in (in the bar!) was friendly and efficient and the complimentary dram of whisky was a nice touch. I had the impression that the manager runs the hotel very professionally and takes pride in doing so. The room, although very small, was lovely and looked like it had recently been refurbished and had a... More

We stayed at the hotel on our last day in Scotland. We chose it because it was very reasonably priced for Edinburgh, and it is a quarter block from the new tramway that goes to the airport. The tramway runs about every 10 minutes starting at 5:30 in the morning. The bus station is also quite close and Waverly Train... More

Stayed here for one night, on arrival we were taken through the rear entrance which was full of rubbish and crates. The room was ok but tv didn't work and there was no extractor in the bathroom. Staff were not overly helpful and I felt like an inconvenience to them! If you do visit this hotel take toilet wipes and... More

Clean, comfortable with friendly staff. Breakfast was yummy. Easy walk to Waverley Train Station and The Royal Mile. Eateries were close by, as were shops and parks. John Lewis was across the road. Will stay there on next trip.
