Booked this hotel last minute and found it was the nicest hotel for the price. We were even more pleased on arrival at lovely room with plenty of space, friendly and genuine staff and central location. Would definitely recommend and return.

This hotel is a nice, comfortable hotel in a good location. The staff were very friendly and helpful, as was everybody else in Edinburgh! The room was very spacious and had a walk in wardrobe. The bed was very comfortable and the room was warm. Only a couple of bad points: 1: The walls are very thin. I could almost... More

Upon arriving, I was greeted with a bit of a building site. I was a little worried at first as no one had mentioned anything before our stay. Although this was going I found it did not effect my stay. The rooms were lovely and a very good size and the bath room as well. The staff are extremely friendly... More

On arrival at the hotel there was a decorator sitting on the steps outside the door having a cigarette, I asked if we could use that door and he said that we could but be careful coz there's a painter up scaffolding behind the door. When we got to our room the window was open and the tatty frayed blinds... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Lots of building work and decorating going on which was a bit of a nuisance. We paid 110 a night for single rooms , the room was small and bathroom pokey. The sink tap appeared to be fitted backwards. The TV had a blue light on it when on standby which lit the room up like... More

Stayed for just one very cold Edinburgh night and received a very warm welcome especially from concierge Jamie if I remember right 28.01.15. In the middle a refurbishment but did not affect quality of stay. Great room 205? overlooking street. Quality buffet breakfast.

Only 1* because they don't have a 0* worst hotel I've ever had the displeasure of even visiting! Charged £100 a night for their shocking "honeymoon suite" upon arrival at the hotel there was clearly building work going on in, making the hotel dusty, noisey and generally a mess! Which we had not been previously warned about but thought ok,... More
