The hotel is really aimed at students, with the rooms being former dorm rooms, however it is in a good location not far from Princess Street and quite central. The room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. There is a basic bathroom in the room. I recommend it if you need a cheap but cheerful place to stay on... More

66 pound per night for a double room on 2nd Dec 2014. The BREAKFAST is nice and self-service. I recommond breakfast. It is as small as a single student accommadation in London. The room was quiet but the fan in the toilet lasted noisy for 20 minutes after turning off the light, which did not disturb sleep. No lift but... More

I booked through Hotwire so it was a complete shot in the dark. The KM is a glorified rehashed dorm room. You have to check in down an alleyway. The shower/toilet is one unit, and the water was tepid at best. All that could be forgiven if it wasn't for the breakfast. True, in the scope of climate change and... More

My partner and I stayed here for a night to watch the rugby aandit was perfect. The description is what it says it is and having read some reviews on here I was apprehensive. Reminds me of the hostel I was in at university. The rooms are small but perfect for the night or two. Bathroom is basic but again... More

Small room; very comfy bed; fantastic breakfast. my wife and i decided to give this hotel a try; we were not disappointed; the room was clean [basic] but comfortable; we slept well; and enjoyed a tasty hot breakfast; served by friendly staff; nothing seemed to much trouble. In comparison; we stayed the next two nights in the 4 star hotel... More

Location & breakfast are the deals with this , basic hotel. First off not 10mins from Waverley train station and only 5 mins from Royal Mile. This is south of Princess St and only minutes from the castle. Bars & restaurants can be found, but travel to the north side is recommended to gain value for money. Rose St &... More

Having read the reviews before travelling, I was dreading staying here. I paid £60 for one night. On a Saturday. You cannot complain at that. Yes there is no lift. Yes it's basic. Yes you shower in a glorified caravan bathroom. But it cost £60 for two of us for one night. It was clean, quite quiet and great location... More

I took the better half away for 2 day and stayed here for one night. First thing I found was the milk was a month out of date. Then there was the start of mould on the window. After catching my breath from the 4 story hike I found that I can sit down and use the toilet with having... More

It's similar to other reviewers that I thought it was a 3-star hotel. It's even worse than most of the B&Bs. The room was smelly. The furnitures were old & worn. The mattress of my bed was sagged. The free Wi-fi was definitely a trouble as it took me 10 mins. to log in. However, breakfast was good.

A party of a 69, 76 and 94 year olds, we had four double flights of stairs to climb daily. A daily dread. Nothing on the website about the fact there is no lift. Morning and evening noisy shuttling of a fork lift truck at a storage/warehouse behind the building. Good points, room and en suite were at an acceptable... More
