Spent a couple of nights there. Nice enough. Clean and in super location, just at junction of George Street with an abundance of bars, restaurants etc and only 5 mins from Harvey Nicks etc. oddly, no facilities at all for eating/drinking but plenty of places nearby. Budget range stuff but snapped up a lovely double room on a Saturday for... More

Stayed for 3 nights - clean good sized room. Location is good and not in a busy/noisy street. Only little negative was that you could hear the elevator going up and down from our room. It's not particularly loud but nonethess noticeable. Otherwise, you do hear some noise when people are in the hallways as well.

I stayed in this hotel on 30th December and specifically requested a quiet room. At around 2am, a drain / pipe started running and loud squealing noises could be made out. I rolled over, put the pillow over my head, put my iPod on, the tv on - all for 2 hours until I gave up and called reception. The... More

We stayed here for four nights, at a really reasonable price. We had no expectations, but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and were given a triple room on the 4th floor. The views were of the street below, but we could see the castle and the hills for miles also. The room was comfortable, had everything we needed including... More

Have stayed here in the past over the past years. Really disappointed with the place, we had a room (405) which had a problem with central heating which manifested itself with the sound of a constant gushing tap. After getting the night porter up twice and failing to get an alternative room we spent an uncomfortable night. We did get... More

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip for two nights. At £110 for two nights you cannot go wrong but there are some problems with this hotel. The good things first: Great central location and big room. Tastefully decorated bathroom. Clean room. The less good things: A lack lustre greeting from the start Curtains falling off the rails...

My boyfriend booked this hotel for my birthday. We stayed for 2 nights got a great rate. Perfect location as you are next to everything in Edinburgh city centre. Rooms very clean. The bed was so comfy. Lovely hotel. Breakfast was small over at cafe rouge but was enough to get your day going.

I stayed here in February 2012, and it was clean, chic, and central, as the title implies. The beds were comfortable, and the hotel has history, and I was impressed with the service, cleanliness, and proximity to the restaurant where breakfast is served (eat a croque madame!) This place did not disappoint, and I would recommend anyone, especially a discerning... More
