“Great Hotel with Great Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

> 5 min walk to Prince street

> 3 supermarkets nearby, so there is no problem buying food and essentials

> 15 min walk from Haymarket Rail Station

> Free apples provided at the lobby

> The rooms are clean, but a bit small. There is little space left for sitting & moving inside double room.

> I suggest the breakfast can have more variety of food choices. 4.95 pounds is a bit overpriced.

> The staff is friendly :)

> Affordable price - similar to the price of private rooms in hostels

Booked this hotel for valentines weekend trip with my wife. Hotel was very nice room was comfortable but a little small. Located really close to Princes Street for the shops which my wife enjoyed thoroughly! We were situated at the back of the hotel so was very quiet no noise at all.

The one thing I would possibly suggest we had breakfast on our first morning and selection was good but it might be an idea to offer toast as we'll to compliment the selection as well as some yoghurts.

The bus stop to airport was located right outside which was excellent too!

Would definitely book to stay here again

Great to have read your review, we offer freshly baked baguettes instead of toast, but thanks for your suggestion. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Javeed Anwar

Fantastic value for money, this is centrally located & the deal they have with ncp saves a fortune in car park fees. The staff are so friendly & helpful.
The rooms are small and cosy, the bed is incredibly comfortable. The only down side is the bathroom and bedroom could do with being a bit bigger, but overall fab value for money!

Stayed for a one night at a great price of £44 + £4.95 for breakfast per person. Hotel situated 10 mins walk from both, Waverley and Haymarket stations, which is great. The room we stayed in was quite small, but funky, clean, well organised and the bed was very comfortable! Good sized bathroom, clean and with toiletries. Continental breakfast, which was reasonably priced I think, had a good selection of cereal, fresh fruit, ham and cheese,veg and hot and cold drinks. Overall we would definitely return for a short stay.

I stayed here with my boyfriend after the Scotland v England match, obviously everywhere was pretty pricey and full but we managed to get this hotel for £99- more than we would usually pay for a budget hotel but cheap compared to everywhere else for this weekend.
The room was probably the tiniest hotel room I have ever stayed in! This isn't a problem for just one night but for more perhaps it could be a bit crammed, especially in the bathroom.
The room and bathroom were mostly clean, just a few hairs on the shower wall which definitely weren't ours but this can be overlooked.
We didn't have breakfast so can't really comment on this but it looked a reasonable price.
It would be beneficial if the hotel attempted to obtain a slighter higher discount for the car parking- we parked at the castle terrace car park, car parking in Edinburgh is generally really expensive so with a better discount we would be more inclined to stay there more often as we visit a lot. We paid £20 for just over 24 hours.
We had a bit of an issue with the temperature of the room- it was so so warm. We turned the radiator off completely and had to sleep with the window open, not ideal when facing a really busy road.
Generally a really satisfactory hotel for a quick break in a really good location.
