Great value, excellent service, clean modern rooms and good location. Does what it says on the tin. Will definitely stay there again. Given the wintery weather outside the rooms were toasty warm, so much so we turned the heating down a bit.

I stayed one night in a single room and honestly expected something very basic for the low rate I paid. The room was small but perfectly fitted out, very modern, clean and comfortable and I received a very friendly welcome at reception. Great location too - will definitely recommend this for people looking for excellent value in Edinburgh.
