Couldn't believe when we checked in to find a Thai takeaway in the reception! Not the quietest. Although we booked in advance our room was about a metre away from the reception desk so again not quiet. The room needed updated & wasn't clean. The glasses in the bathroom were dirty. Have heard the hotel is going through a revamp... More

Myself and three of my girlfriends stayed here for our visit to Edinburgh in mid-January. We weren't expecting much, given the very low price we paid. Overall our stay was enjoyable, and we would go back to stay at Hotel Twenty if a few things were fixed: - Our first impression as we walked through the front door was "Are... More

We book this hotel through booking.com and everything went well. Until we arrived at the hotel itself. We were told that our room was overlooking the garden. It could not be more wrong: we were overlooking the main street. With the non-stop traffic, of course. The size of the room was incredibly small, not like the ones shown in the... More

Dear Guest , I am sad that you did not have a pleasant experience at Hotel Twenty . As you are aware we have only recently taken over the hotel and we are currently refurbishing another 3 rooms to the same standards as the other refurbished rooms. This process does take a lot time and money especially when the building... More

Picked up this room through Laterooms for my monthly overnight stay. It was exceptionally cheap for Edinburgh, so my expectations were not high. The reception desk is downstairs which isn't entirely clear on entering the building and there doesn't seem to be a lift. It is an old building and shows some signs of ageing decor. There are renovations in... More

Great value for money. The service was good but the breakfast could be richer. The room was cozy and warm and the sheets and towels clean. We were allowed to leave our luggage for the whole day after the checkout with no extra charge.

We were booked into this hotel on the 27/12/14, on arrival we were met with the proprietor to tell us the room we were booked into had been vandalised by the previous guests. Our hearts sank. He went on to tell us that we're not to worry because he had booked us into another hotel round the corner much better... More
