3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel using our reward nights. The location is good - right next to Princes Street and in a walking distance from Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. It was strange not find an elevator in the ground level, but this is probably due to the structure of the building. The room was a standard... More

This is the first time I have ever written a review on Tripadvisor. We stayed here at the weekend and i was so shocked at the breakfast we were offered. You would think that paying almost £300 for a two night break that we could sit and relax at breakfast with nice table service in a large dining room. Not... More

The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the staff were all helpfull and friendly.the hotel is in a great location and walking distance to most attractions or to the tour buses. The only negative I have to say is about the breakfast.a cooked breakfast normally consists of bacon I thought??...there was sausages(which were not of great quality),scrambled egg,beans,and toast.the...

Nice and clean hotel with lovely welcoming staff from the reception to the cleaners. Rooms nice and clean nothing fancy but still everything we needed. Breakfast was included in the price a bit of a let down you only got sausages (basic brand) scrambled eggs and beans for the hot part. The fresh orange which we tried on all 3... More

Great location being near the city centre. Had a lovely modern styled room - it was on the same floor and close to the reception area and was over looking the road, but that did not matter as it was extremely quite and very comfortable. Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would definitely return. Only negative would be... More

It's difficult to rate limited-service hotels: this hotel will not delight you with charm, towels folded into swans, or the finest amenities, but then, quite frankly, you are not paying for those items. My room was clean, the wi-fi was terrific (fast enough to allow me to teleconference), the shower was hot with good water pressure, and the bed was... More

Recently stayed in this hotel in June for 1 night. Room was small but nice and tidy. Great location. Close to city center with all the shopping close by. Restaurants straight across the road with a cinema. Only issue was the room we were in, we were right next to a generator or fan which was very loud.

The location was very convenient for us. I could imagine for others who were older or frail that the distance from main tourist attractions may be an issue. We found it a good walk to the Royal Mile and other areas that we visited. Public transport is available. Our room was fine. We were on the road side and noise... More

Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. We arrived around 9:30am and the front desk clerk said they had a room available if we wanted to go ahead and check in rather than having to wait until 2:00pm. The room was clean and comfortable with free WiFi. Breakfast very substantial and quite good. The only negative was the 6:30am fire... More
