I went to Edinburgh at the end of August for the back end of the numerous festivals happening in Edinburgh. I was so pleased that I stayed at this hotel - the receptionists (especially Karmen) were really friendly, informative and cheery. We were welcomed quickly and efficiently, and greeted every time we passed the reception. Check out was also easy and quick.
The room itself was very clean and a good size. The bed was comfortable, although personally I would have preferred a slightly softer bed, but I still slept really well! The temperature of the room was really good, and I didn't hear any noise from the road outside. We were given 2 sets of towels and 2 pillows each which made the room that bit more comfortable, and it was all presented nicely and without fuss. There was also tea and coffee facilities, a hairdryer, a fan, bodywash/shampoo and clothes hangers. The room was on the second floor, and didn't have a view - it's a budget hotel which was more than sufficient for our trip.
We stayed for 2 nights and each morning got breakfast in the connecting Beefeater. The first day we had a continental breakfast (around £5.50), consisting of bread, croissants, yoghurts, fruit, cereal and a good selection of drinks. The second day we had a full breakfast (£8.25 ish) which included hot food in addition to the above. It was pleasant and kept us full for a long time.
The hotel itself is about a 20 minute bus ride from the city centre and the train station, but don't let this put you off. It is served by bus routes 4, 44 and 113, which mean you never have to wait more than 10-15 minutes for a bus. A day pass is £3.50 and a single is £1.40, but make sure you have exact change as you won't be given anything back.
Definitely would stay here again, especially at the price we paid - £49pn! Good value for money.
