We stayed here as a last minute getaway to visit the Christmas market. It was excellent value for money. Rooms were lovely and clean. Location was excellent. Mrs a couple of minutes walk to princes street where all the Christmas markets were. Fantastic weekend. Would recommend anyone to visit. Really magical weekend. The Christmas markets is a must.

My wife and I stopped here for two night to see wicked on the 5th December 2014. Our room (the 'Forth' room) was a bit small and cramped to be a deluxe double, however the bed was comfy !! We had a lovely view over the firth. There was plenty of tea and coffee to drink in the room, pity... More

Stayed one Saturday evening in November to see a show. Room was small smelt of fresh paint and was incredibly bland. Poorly furnished with cheep black ash units and empty walls . In the hallway were old mattresses and disgarded furnishings. The worst however was the fact that my room overlooked York Place and there was no double or secondary... More

Friends recommended this hotel to me as work brought me to Edinburgh. I didn't think of checking whether the festival was on during my stay, and of course it was. So I felt particularly lucky to secure a room so centrally located. This hotel is in a great location, as many reviewers have noted. The staff are helpful, as also... More

We have stayed in this hotel twice, both times it has been the staff which has made it a lovely experience. The hotel itself has a great central location and the rooms at the back have a wonderful view over Edinburgh. The rooms and bathrooms themselves are clean and well appointed but the downstairs bar is rather tired and needs... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night whilst in Edinburgh for a show. The check in and out was nice and quick, and the location is good for Bus, Train and Tram links. Our room on the first floor was very small and the bed took up most of the floor space, which made moving around the room very difficult.... More

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
