After reading the reviews on trip advisor before we left, my partner and myself were quite worried about staying at this hotel. But we were pleasently surprised. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly man at reception who agreed to store our bags until our room was ready. When we got to the room it was very clean. The... More

I booked this hotel for 3 nights but decided to leave after the first night. The beds are very uncomfortable, you wake up with pain from the hardness of the mattress, noise from guests keeps you awake and the room is dirty.The price you pay is way too much for the shabby rooms.THIS IS A HONEST REVIEW. DO NOT STAY... More

From the pictures on another hotel website, it looked ok to stay but we were very wrong. The walls are so thin I could hear the people in the next room talking. The room was dirty and very dated. The beds were uncomfortable. There is no way that it was worth the price we paid.

I had read lots of reviews on this hotel before i left and was terrified as they all spoke about the dirt etc. We were lucky we got a newly refurbished room on the third floor. Yes the workmen started work at 8.30am but at £124 for two people for two nights within walking distance of the centre of Edinburgh... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my fiance. The hotel itself is easy to find, parking is on site for £5 per 24 hours. Reception will advise how to get this discounted rate at check in. The rooms were clean and tidy, lovely sheets on the bed, great shower. I did have a slight issue with my... More

We stayed at this hotel earlier in the year and complained as the room was filthy, it had a huge stain in the corner of the room that was floor to ceiling and in the morning we had no hot water. When we went down to reception to check out there was no mention of why there was no hot... More

We had a reservation at a nearby hotel but there was a mistake in the number of people and we needed another hotel to accommodate extra people. The photos did not look too bad so we booked it. Location: Nothing wrong. Its not in the city centre and we knew that. Building: Weird. It looks like some old school dorm... More

Only thing I found disappointing about this place is that it was most definitely NOT in the city centre as advertised, but it is in a lovely spot. Quite simple decor, but pleasant, clean and hygenic - always a necessity. Restaurant was nice, staff were fantastic. Overall my husband and I enjoyed this hotel, despite the refurbishments going on at... More

Firstly there was no mention when booking this Hotel that they were undergoing reburbishment. Our room was reasonably clean just very very dated the mattress needed renewing desperately as everytime you moved a spring poked in you. The bathroom again was relatively clean except for mould on the ceiling and pink mould all along the bottom of the shower curtain.... More

Considering we got a good deal it was okay - stayed 1 night end of May. Staff were friendly - warned us there was remodeling going on. This was evident of the dusty foot prints in the lobby. Our room was not remodeled, it was a little dated, but reasonably clean - Bathroom was clean, but needed some grouting work... More
