We have stayed here quite a few times and have recommended it to friends as well, there were 18 of us in November and they all liked it as well. The position can not be beaten. Up the escalator from the railway station, cross the road and you are there. It is great for shops, you can keep popping back to drop stuff off instead of carrying it all day. It's around the corner from Rose Street for bars and cafes so no taxi fares home, and it is just over the bridge and up a short hill and you are in the middle of the Royal Mile. Parts of the hotel have been revamped and updated with the bar and restaurant being a trendy and popular place to go for non residents as well as people who are staying there. The cocktail making person is amazing to watch and produces wonderful drinks which for a hotel, were not as expensive as you would expect. The views from the bars and restaurant are magical with the castle and other buildings all lit up. Yes things sometimes go wrong such as the heater in our room stopped working but the staff are lovely and very helpful. The manager himself brought us a new heater and made sure it was working before he left the room. If you want a central location and don't mind the odd quirk alongside value for money then this is a very good hotel.
