Despite several bad reviews of this hotel I stayed there with my partner for two days and found the staff to be pleasant, the room was spotless and was easy to get into the city center. I didn't book breakfast but there are lots of places to have breakfast within an easy bus ride. I would stay again as had... More

was very friendly, we were in no.26 very basic, we could have done with a mirror in the room and the central heating did not turn off completely which made the room too warm at times, and it would have helped to have a shaving point in the room. This is a hotel where you get what you pay for... More

Avoid like the plague unless you like a bed made from 4 x 2 timber (not a real be frame) enjoy not having a window. ... enjoy having a blast from the past with a big crt tv. Also please be aware that the free car park is 4 spaces and there is limited road parking (hotel has 20+ rooms)... More

Stayed two nights in a three bed room, unfortunately it was a double bed and a single room although it was booked as 3 single beds. Room 28: you cant open the windows. Smell horrendous and havent slept proper as we needed to keep door open to get some fresh air. Shared bathroom was dirty and needs a refurb. Receptionist... More

Place needs upkeep. Shabby and worn is best description for this place. Receptionist very pleasant. Food is slopped onto yr plate at breakfast. Clearly budget....'two for the price of one' hand wash in shared bathroom.... Won't see me again anytime soon.

My partner and I were looking for for a simple, clean and good value place to stay for our weekend in Edinburgh. We were not expecting much, just a place to sleep and freshen up after exploring the city was all we needed but unfortunately, this hotel could not even deliver that! Our room was a cold, damp smelling basement... More

Abbots House does offer free wifi, but the signal only extends through the front lobby area, not the guest rooms. However, my room was perfectly clean, and the location is good. The #35 bus is 5 minutes away, and the #12 bus (Princes Street, museums, etc.) is literally steps from the front door. Good value for the money.

I would definitely not stay here again... a hostel with a shared dorm room is probably a better idea... my room here was exceedingly basic - no shampoo or conditioner, cold, with a creaky bed and very thin walls! (I could hear my neighbour's having a conversation..). The shared bathroom featured a toilet which was consistently out of water and... More
