For me, my wife and our family friend that was the first trip to Edinborough (and definitely not the last one for we fell actually in love with the city) and we expected nothing special. But the Grassmarket proved to be the nicest place we ever stayed at. The hotel designer did a very good job, the style is inventive,... More

Had a weekend here in august with 10 of my friends. Location is great. Checkin was v easy and had a lovely girl there who flew through the process. It's very much a hotel purely for the bed. No real lobby, bar in adjoining building. The rooms are very quirky and cool. Tea and coffee. Showers are ok, a little... More

Location was fabulous, sitting just under the castle and next door to many pubs. Breakfast at biddy Mullins, next door, was very reasonable. We loved some quirky parts of the rooms eg. Magnetic wall map, but others such as one tiny bedside table filled with a large lamp and slippery shower taps, were just not practical for two travellers. Not... More

Such helpful staff, we arrived way too early to check in and weren't back until much later in the day, the staff totally understood how exhausted we were and made the whole process easy. We were told we were in one of the bigger double rooms, when we got in to the room, we weren't sure how it was a... More

The grassmarket is located right in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town with Pubs, Restaurants and Shops lining its sides. It's only a short walk to many of the attractions and you'll have no problem finding your way back to the hotel after spending some time in the pub. I had a single room which was not too small, with... More

Not a single complaint - it was a wonderful stay and will definitely be back again in the future! The teacakes were a great touch and we were able to check in early and drop our bags off after a long flight.

I stayed for a week at Grassmarket in a single/cosy room and loved it. The location is perfect, right next to gorgeous Victoria Terrace and an easy walk around Old Town and to New Town. My room was funky with cute little features and the iPod dock with speakers in the bedroom and bathroom was awesome. Bed was very comfy... More

I was a solo traveler in a single room to which I stayed in for 4 nights. While the room was small, it had everything I needed and was clean, modern & comfortable. The decor was certainly unique and loved the little treats and snacks in the room. The hotel was in a great location, being only 10 minutes walk... More

This is a lovely hotel and a bit different from other hotels - quirky decor and a giant map on the wall. We had a quad room which was very big. The bathroom was lovely. The location is perfect, right in Grassmarket and only a few steps from the castle and Royal Mile. The main drawback is parking. While it... More
