My wife and I stayed at the AWP hotel for three nights whilst on holiday in the UK. The hotel was clean and extremely well located near to shops, the Royal mile and Holyrood park. The rooms were sizable and we had a lovely view of Calton Hill from our room.
On the negative side, the service was not as good as it could have been. We had problems at check-in and similar problems at check-out due to an inability for staff to view notes which had been placed on the account. Service in the Hotel Bar was also poor, with long waiting times for meals. I also note that the hotel Bar appears to be a popular night spot for locals and at times this made the lobby quite noisy.
All in all the hotel was good value and very clean and comfortable. Its location makes it ideal for people who are looking to be out and about whilst in Edinburgh. However it is not a good hotel for a romantic getaway with little being offered in the way of extra services - the advertised "Spa" is in fact really just a pool, sauna and gym.
