We stayed here for two nights for a city break in Edinburgh. The hotel itself is in an excellent location with the Omni centre just over the road offering a selection of bars, restaurants and a cinema.
The main centre of Edinburgh is a 10 minute walk away to Waverly Station that has good bus services and is ideally suited for the castle and the Royal Mile.
The hotel is typical of the Holiday Inn express style however I would advise against the basement rooms as they are small and overlooked by the street at the front of the property. However the staff were excellent and allowed us to change rooms without any fuss.
This is a popular hotel and breakfast does get a bit busy but you can eat downstairs in the bar as well as upstairs and this is generally more relaxed.
All in all this is a great little hotel, in a very good location and I would definitely recommend it for a visit to Edinburgh.
