Grassmarket Hotel is in a brilliant location for exploring the city and being close to lots of bars and restaurants. We chose it after reading other reviews and seeing pictures of its quirky décor - it didn't let us down. We loved the unique style of the hotel. Our room was small and cozy, but it was clean, comfortable and... More

Good afternoon Samie83! Great to hear back from you, and with such a lovely review as well! We do love being in the middle of the action and, as you said, with so much choice in the surrounding area!

Myself and a couple of friends stayed here for a night and I genuinely can't recommend them enough. The staff were lovely and exceptionally helpful. The room was spotless, modern and very comfortable and the location was central but quiet. I will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Staff were welcoming, friendly and very accommodating. The hotel was in a great location!Several bars, restaurants and shops nearby! although the rooms were quite basic, they were very clean, modern and had a quirky design which was great! We only stayed here for one night, but we would definitely go back and stay for longer.

We stayed two nights in a 'comfy double' which lived up to it's comfy name. The room was very clean, and everything worked well. Wi-fi was fast and reliable, and there were plenty of convenient electric outlets. The room was compact, and had some odd corners, as expected from a heritage building, but it was well laid out, with lots... More

A well located hotel with funky decor, so much better than the drab chain hotels. Excellent location, very modern rooms with ipod docks and comic strip wallpaper. Breakfast is in the Irish bar next door. A Tunnock's Teacake left in your room everyday!

We had a one-night stay in a 'comfy double', which was charmingly quirky and ultra clean. The Dandy wallpaper, cheeky toiletries and chunky mugs added a touch of warmth to the sleek lines of the rest of the decor. We'd happily go back - the location is fabulous, the staff are delightful, and the bed had a wonderfully firm mattress.

Great location, lovely staff, perfect little room. Tunnocks tea cakes on arrival were very well received. There are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants nearby and you are a stones throw away from the Royal Mile and castle. Looking forward to our next visit!

You get a good rate and a good room here. First impressions don't portray the real picture. Don't be put off by the stairways, which could be brighter and more appealing, as the room makes up for them. Laminate floors, huge beds (and a modern bathroom) with tea/coffee and marshmallows and cartoon character walls make this a real change from... More

Hotel is a fabulous base for visiting Edinburgh Great location, lovely rooms, v friendly staff & monster breakfast. Ticks all the boxes. Having said that, my room was small (but well designed) so perfect as somewhere to sleep but you might not want to hang out there all day.
