“Worth whats paid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 4 days 1st week of oct. We had room 25 top floor with lots of stairs did get asked if wanted help with bags.Room was adequate,in hotel was quiet could hear road but its near the center so its understandable,bathroom small but you dont live in there,room was clean and tidy nice seemed like a new flat screen tv,full length mirror with a good hair dryer,window opened which was left open most of the time.didnt have much interaction with staff but were very polite when we did. Breakfast was fine,enough to get you goin in the morning.With a 20 min walk to city center i would definatily stay here again!! Never had one complaint!!

It is next to the haymarket station. Not to close to Princess Street, we needed to take a bus (10min) every day. you shoould consider expend a little bit more and stay closer to Princess St. It was a very nice room, clean, new and wide. They have a good breakfast, but our room was exactly under the breakfast room, what is a very stupid idea, cause we woke up early with the noise made by people who is getting breakfast in the morning. They charged for the internet. Not worthy.

Stayed for one night in twin room with freind, ideally located in Haymarket for bus stop to Edinburgh Airport. Room was ideal and shower was good. Remember for the price your paying this isn't going to be the Ritz. Was ideal for one nights room only.
Would stay again if with a mate.

We felt like we were staying in a hostel. No headboard on bed, no valance on bed base, no dressing table, no full length mirror, like sleeping in a cupboard. Breafast was a sham & nowhere to sit. Tye pictures on the internet was nothing like what we saw. Would definitely not recommend this "Hotel" to anyone.

we stayed at the Piries for four nights we had a room right at the top 28 to be honest I think it was better sized for a single room as the double bed was one side shoved against a wall and half the window, the bathroom wasnt roomy either but the shower was fairly new and worked well,when we arrived we had to give them a 20 pound deposit which we then had to wait to get back at departure so make sure you give yourself enough time on checking out, so a bit of a mix some bad points room a little small, the bed was a little too squashy for my tastesand slightly odd decor in the stair wells ( honestly dont stare at the carpets too long it makes your eyes go a little strange) the room was cleaned everyday although we had the same sheets all of our stay where as most hotels change them every other day, on the plus side its cheap and close to haymarket rail station and on the bus route to the airport its quiet and if your only there a few days is a good budget option.

Room Tip: the stairs are a steep climb if you have mobility worries if you can go for the lower levels I would

I take your comments on board and pass to the relevant department for action

Just to point out that changing linen policy is every 3 days(hotels normal standard) unless otherwise instructed by guest to change it everyday

We are keen on environment and reducing our carbon footprint requires some steps and help from our guest that doesn't mean jeopardizing our service or guest(s) satisfaction

Overall I am positive that your stay with us was enjoyable and hope we can welcome you once again to extend our hospitality

Our stay at this hotel was definately not the highlight of our holiday. The rooms was basic, the bathroom was small, the shower difficult to get into as the door opening was down the side of the toilet. it had water stains down the walls from rain leakage and smelt and felt very damp, even though it had not rained for about 5 days(August 2012) The breakfast was OK and the gut at the reception desk was not particulary helpful. Lots of stairs to get suitcases up and down, and we wern't offered any assistance.

Stayed here while in town for a conference in July 2012. Arrived slightly early so couldn't check into my room, so needed to wait until after 2pm to get into my room and so had to walk around in the rain. Got the impression that it was more of policy rather than the fact that my room wasn't ready. Room was on the 2nd level, with no elevator. Not that I minded, but I had a very heavy suitcase. Luckily a girl on staff came and helped me. Room was adequate, bed comfortable. Flat screen television. Bathroom was quite small, and shower wasn't the best. Took several minutes to get hot water and the water virtually turned on at off several times. Sounds like I've got lots of bad things to say, but I really don't. Was a perfectly adequate hotel and totally appropriate for its number of 'stars'.
