“Great location and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Just a couple of minutes from Waverley Station this new hotel is ideal for a short stay. Conveniently situated between the old and new town this is a perfect base for exploring Edinburgh. The rooms are very clean and modern. However, not a lot of storage space for a longer stay. Good powerful shower and lovely thick towels. Some liquid soap in addition to shower gel would have been appreciated. No soap dish in shower for gel/shampoo which was strange. Breakfast is extra but we didn't bother as there are a load of cafes nearby if required. Staff very friendly and we would have no hesitation in staying here again.

This hotel is fantastic, great prices for Edinburgh centre, brilliant location right next to train station. Very clean and lovely staff who were very helpful. Only gripe was two single duvets on a double bed, they kept sliding off. Other than that it was a great stay. Will definitely be back.

Stayed here for weekend while going to six nations rugby match and was one of few hotels not doubling prices for the saturday night. Perfectly located new hotel a minutes walk from Waverley station. Pleasant staff on check in, room immaculate as expected as this is new hotel. Bed very comfy and shower room a good size. Down sides - no tea making facilities in room, all instructions online in German and only continental breakfast available. Overall a great stay and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms face onto princes street
