I was hoping to say at the Radisson on the royal mile but all their cheaper rooms had sold out so I chose this hotel as a 2nd choice because of a negative experience at this chain in the past. I was very surprised at the professionalism of the staff (for a UK hotel) and their advice on what to do / where to go / eat was great.
The room was big enough for 2 and was clean and tidy. Beds were not the comfiest I've used but acceptable. Breakfast is described as 'continental' but also included sausage, egg and beans and was quite good. For the money I could not receommend a better place in this area of Edinburgh - it was so convenient to go everywhere! Castle just 10/15 mins walk, Scottish Museum about 5/7 mins walk and a Tesco nearby too if you need to get any shopping.
