Great room, modern, clean and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly, kind and helpful. Our only recommendation is to vary breakfast, as it is very repetitive if you are there for a few days (as we did). The only negative thing: ventilation on bathroom seems to be missing in their design, and the door of the bathroon doesnt close completely... But, anyway, it was a fantastic choice for us and great location as well. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We loved the Deluxe - Studio, 6th floor.

I stayed here with my 10 year old son over the weekend of 16 March. We arrived at 9 am on the Saturday expecting to drop off our bags but the very kind man who checked us in, Pavel, offered us breakfast while we waited and our room was ready when we'd eaten. This was great, what was even better was that we were given a gorgeous, massive room with two double beds and a sofa etc.

As others have said, the rooms are clean, great facilities and decor but what really sets this hotel apart is the fantastic service. I happened to mention to Pavel on check in that we were thinking of going to the cinema at some point and when we next came through reception he gave us a print out of all the local cinema times and lent us an umbrella as it was snowing. All staff were friendly and welcoming throughout our stay but Pavel in particular. My son loved it so much, I'd taken him away for a treat and he absolutely adored his stay here.

Our experience at this hotel was great - the room was lovely, location good and the staff made our visit very relaxing and enjoyable. There are hotels with a slightly better location or more character but I would defnitely choose this hotel next time visit Edinburgh on the strength of the excellent customer service.

Perfect hotel with good service, nice big rooms, all designed for comfort. Last but not least; location is perfect as it is in the center close to all mayor sites but still very quite. I can strongly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for one night only. An absolutely fantastic place to stay. Hotel was very clean, well located, excellent service, good food, helpful & knowledgable staff, easy walking distance to all visitor attractions. Would recommend and will definitely use again. We stayed in a room on the first floor in apartment style room. A perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 103.

I stayed in this hotel several times in 2012, when I was in Edinburgh on business trip. Overall it is a great hotel, considering the its' cost, location and facilities. Apartment style rooms a very convenient in case you are staying there for longer than 1 night, working station is good and well equipped, breakfast is excellent, location too - it's on;y 15 minutes walk to Princess street and at the same time it is situated in a quite corner, next door to a park. If you are lucky enough to get a top-floor apartment with a castle view (at no extra cost) you can enjoy terrific views at the sunset and sunrise.

Room Tip: Top floor with castle view
