A standard hotel with a bit of a motel feel to it. Its old town location makes it perfect for tourists and while it's only about 600' from the train station, that distance is almost vertical, up about 70 steps (I counted them!) so if you have luggage, you'll need either a taxi or stamina. The staff is friendly and efficient (high marks to the concierge, Phil) and the lobby is always busy. The location makes it easy to walk to other parts of the city and the neighborhood, while touristy, has nice pubs, a range of restaurants, little grocers and souvenir shops, and places for breakfast if you're not taking it at the hotel, which was our case. The rooms are fine, albeit small, but they have the look of a place that is maintaining (the room was very clean) but not investing. There were scuffs on the wall, a burn mark on the carpet, a hook missing in the bathroom -- it adds up and made the room seem a little shabby. But the safe worked, the bed was good, the WiFi was free and robust, and our room on the back was very quiet. I echo what another wrote that the bed pillows are thin; wish I had thought to request replacements! We had scored a good price so taken all together, it was a good value and we didn't regret the choice. And Edinburgh is fabulous!
