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.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We had a friendly welcome and checkin and the bar staff could give useful information on where to eat for dinner and breakfast as there is no breakfast offered by the hotel. Our room was in second floor. It was clean as well as the bathroom. While we stayed in Edinburgh, a tram... More

A last minute choice for a hotel in Edinburgh. For the price I didn't hold high expectations. Limited free parking in the rear alley this little hotel is quite a find. Rooms are well equipped and the beds are MASSIVE and very comfortable. Bathroom has all the amenities and also great water pressure. There is no lift here so you'll... More
