The room was fun and modern but also very clean and comfortable. The amenities were great - especially loved the toiletries provided. Only downside was that as it is above a bar, we had a few unexpected guests knocking at our door in the early hours of the morning looking for their room but otherwise the bar itself shut early...

I LOVED this hotel. Extremely friendly - accommodated an early check in without trouble. Location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh on foot. For a cool & quirky room - the cleanliness and modern bathroom are of a high standard. Comfy bed. Look forward to returning and spending more time. The little details like the humorous info, nice coffee, tea cakes... More

Great location on grassmarket which is close to the Castle and Old Town. Staff were really helpful and friendly. The room we stayed in was soundproof so although it is located next to a pub you can still get a good nights' sleep. Rooms are quite small but you don't need it to be any bigger if you are just...

As always the staff at The Grassmarket were friendly and accommodating. There were specific things I asked for (like extra towels and when to make payment) and they did this with no problem at all. My room was bigger than last time (as requested) and it was beautiful. The view from the 3 windows was lovely and I spent a... More

Rooms, bathroom/shower area all very clean and modern. Edinburgh maps as wall paper are different and also very helpful. Probably designed for younger guests however we are in our sixties and thought it was great, a good price for something quirky and away from the standard high expense norm. Great location for everything in Edinburgh. Lovely staff and reception staffed... More

Good evening Fred! Lovely to hear from you after your stay with us! We love to provide a little bit of fun for young and old in our rooms and I'm glad you could appreciate and enjoy all the little details. The Tunnocks tea cakes are very delectable, aren't they?

Needed a reasonably priced, centrally located hotel for a birthday visit to our kids in Edinburgh. Couldn't believe the price and wasn't expecting much. Was really quirky, very clean, good sized room, great sized very comfortable bed. Had everything we needed with no fuss. Would definitely recommend. Little gem.

Centrally located, reasonably priced and with a really cool vibe. Loved the room especially the map wall and the copy of the Dandy - probably appeals to younger people or those who are young at heart. Room wasn't the biggest but it had everything you needed for your stay.
