Friendly staff, great location and a very unique decor. I loved this place and will definitely book again. The washroom and toiletries were waaay above expectation, if I had more time the hotel alone would have been enough for me to extend my stay.

Fun and funky hotel in great location. Parking with 24 hour attendant and CCTV camera, a 5 minute walk away. Hotel is laid out in an atypical manner with narrow hallways, stairs and one lift. Very quite for being so centrally located. Bed super comfortable and lovely shower!

Everything about the hotel worked. Friendly reception, easy check in/out. Really clean and stylish room. Comfy bed, great bathroom. Eclectic, stylish furnishings. Looked to fault it but couldn't. Guys in the pub/restaurant downstairs super helpful and a quality steak to boot. 10 out of 10 from me. Will be back.

I give it a 5/5 for what it is, and that is a budget hotel. The location is fabulous, the rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The service was great. For our quick trips for some fun in Ediniburgh this will be first pick.

Just returned from a 3 night stay here and cannot praise it enough. There can be no doubt that this hotel is fabulously spotless in cleanliness and ideally situated for shopping on princes street, exploring all the must see tourist attractions like the castle and museum and for the bars and restaurants located in the square in which it resides....

This hotel is located in the heart of the Grass Market! From the outside the hotel - it fits in perfectly with the rest of the area - Neat old stone building and kept nice & clean. Then you walk inside....It is a funky, modern (but not tacky) and well laid out lobby. Neat accents - including games, magazine reading... More
