Just what we needed for our weekend visit to Edinburgh, comfortable bed, shower room, TV and all very central for station and places we wanted to visit. Our room 2.1 was at the back and quiet, we slept well. The price was a lot but everywhere was expensive ( Rugby weekend!!) The staff were helpful, approachable and friendly. Especially the lady on reception Sunday afternoon ( A Big thank you for brining our case down😊 ) We would definitely use again.

Not sure where to begin here but firstly I would say that if you have any sort of difficulty walking do not book this hotel. It has very steep steps leading to all rooms with no lift. The reception is on the second floor with all other rooms on the other floors. There are no facilities outside of the room, such as luggage storage, bar or food options and offers no car parking facilities but there are a few near by next to other hotels. There’s also nothing inside of the room other than the basic amenity of the bed and shower within your room. The caveat to this booking is that we were generally looking for a room for the night last minute for New Year’s and most hotels were fully booked or seriously overpriced but this one and with the location this seemed to fit the bill. It’s very conveniently located on Princes Street where the Hogmanay celebrations took place and at the end of the night it only took minutes to get back to the hotel so from that prospective it served it’s purpose. But all cards on the table, that’s where the positives end. This room is shockingly small, like Plane bathroom small. If you’re thinking about turning around in your room, think again. This is not the room for that, as soon as you open the door you are on your bed. The bathroom is basically a small shower with a toilet and sink in the middle of it. To even take the photo for this review I had to do some cirque Soleil type moves, which sounds like an exaggeration but believe me it is not. On the way down we actually encountered a couple who had left their door open and told us it was so they could breathe. They said this in a joking manner but being in the same situation we knew how much this rang true. The rooms also seem to have very thin walls, you can hear the showers run and toilets flush from next door and guest speaking. It has to be said that not all rooms are the same type so there maybe a few rooms that are slightly bigger but going off the room we stayed in, if that’s the standard they set then it really doesn’t bold well for the rest of the rooms. The smallness of the room could be forgiven if the rooms were immaculately clean but they are not. There’s rust in the shower and stains on the bedding which is inexcusable when you pay over £100 for one night in a cupboard sized room. Normally at this point I would say it could do with a refurbishment but I don’t think there’s much point, honestly best just to avoid and spend a little bit more for another hotel. The people at the reception seemed nice and if you are in a bit of a pickle and need a room in a great location then you may find this one appealing especially if you’re on your own. Personally I won’t be staying here ever again, I have been Edinburgh many times and love the city and will return many times in the years to come but will avoid this hotel and would advise anyone else to stay clear too.

Dear Wils, Thank you for your review. We are delighted you found our staff to be friendly and appreciated our city centre location. We are very sorry if your stay with us wasn't satisfactory. As a budget hotel, we offer compact rooms with minimal facilities that were designed to maximize the space as much as possible. Significantly, we face the limitation like building construction that cannot be overcome. We occupy the historical building and for this reason, we are not able to fit the lift here at easyHotel Edinburgh. All information about hotel facilities and lack of lift is listed on our website where can be seen before making a reservation. Our brand is to ensure that we can offer the best city center location and for a rate that is the cheapest in the area. In order to do so we bring it back to great basics where you can enjoy a great stay that is both comfortable and clean. We understand that this might not be for everyone, which is why we find it so important to read through all the provided information on our websites, where we share things, such as photos of the rooms. We are very sorry if this has not been made clear to you before you booked your stay with us. We appreciate your feedback and please accept my sincerest apologies for the issues that you experienced during your stay. I can assure you that our team is working hard every day on improving our standards and services based on our guest’s opinions to make sure we can meet all expectations. We hope to welcome you back Kind regards, easyHotel Edinburgh Team

Recently stayed for a family birthday. We knew the rooms were small, but tiny best describes them. This said the value for money was exceptional. Location is amazing. The view of the castle is wonderful. Would I stay again? The answer would have to be no. This is purely a personal preference for slightly more luxuries needed as we get older.

Easyhotel describe themselves as a “super budget hotel” but this is not the case we paid 134 for a one night stay in a room that had no window and that provided us 0 space to get dressed. It resembled a jail cell more than a “hotel room” with metals walls and an exceptionally small bathroom. The pictures are very misleading showing stunning views but there are only a handful of rooms with windows. We had an issue with the night light in the room. When we informed reception the only help we were offered was to cover it with something and that the manager would be informed in the morning. But nothing further was mentioned even on check out. Last point is the fact that the air conditioning is controlled by the reception which I have never heard of before and feel is very useless. Poor experience. One to avoid for certain

Hello Cammy, We are disappointed that you found our room size to be small. easyHotel Edinburgh is a budget hotel which offers space-efficient rooms, designed to meet basic needs. We have tried to maximize the space in order to provide the most competitive price in the heart of the city center. As a super budget hotel, we only offer the basics for a good night’s sleep which are bed, shower and warmth. Our offer is directed to the specific type of travelers who are looking for affordable accommodation in the great location wanting to explore the city rather than staying in the hotel. We are a super budget hotel offering simple value and basic facilities which may not be suitable for everybody. This is why the detailed information regarding room sizes and facilities can be found online, where it can be seen before making a booking. It is the Guest who chooses a certain type of room (with window, windowless or standard). There is also an option to upgrade the room (if available) when the room booked does not meet the Guest's expectations. We understand that our concept is not for everybody this is why we place such an importance on reading all the information opposed to checking only the location and price. We’re sorry to hear you didn’t find your stay to be good value for money. Thank you again for your time, and our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Best regards, easyHotel Edinburgh Team

I am in love with this hotel. Specifically I am in love with Kate, the Polish lady who checked me in and out. The epitome of hospitability. Small rooms but ... that's what you're looking for if you're looking at an easyHotel. Better than a Pod, right? The epitome of efficiency. Small bed, small counter, small bathroom, plenty of storage space under the bed, but if all you're looking for is a place to rest your head and hide your stuff, this is perfect, especially for the price. And because Kate is so wonderful.

We had a room with a beautiful view of the castle. That’s the only good thing about it. It was so small, we struggled to get dressed. The bathroom was a shower with a toilet almost in it. No where to unpack. No chairs, tables or even a side to put a drink on. Not that they provided any kettle or drinking facilities. There was no heating and a small radiator that was left for us to plug in. You would have thought they would have heated the room as they knew we were arriving. It was so cold I went to bed dressed and a Woolley hat to keep warm. That was with the portable heater on all night. We had to climb 3 flights of stairs to have this experience. Never again. If we hadn’t of flown here for the visit, I would have gone home as soon as we had arrived. We have got to laugh about the whole stay, otherwise we would cry. There is no way this can be called a hotel. An absolute rip off.

Lockerbie, United Kingdom1 contribution1 helpful vote
The rooms are so comically small I genuinely laughed out loud on entering mine. I reckon there was about 2 foot square of free floor space in total. The room is basically a box with a bed jammed into an alcove created by a wall and the toilet/shower cubicle. Every movement has to be meticulously planned as some things will involve having to open or close the toilet door, even when the toilet is not part of what you're trying to do. You have to leave the toilet door open to sit on the toilet, and while sitting on the toilet your right foot will be in the shower tray. The walls are so thin I could hear a neighbouring 'guest' brushing their teeth. It also bears pointing out that you have to ask, and pay extra for, a window. But beware purchasing a window, as during my stay the window cleaner arrived outside my window at 6am and proceeded to clean the window with, as far as I could tell, a half brick. The whole experience was more or less like spending a night in bright orange prison. Was clean enough though, I'll give them that.

Would not recommend the room on the website advertised a nice view of Edinburgh Castle instead the only view I got was off a portacabin toilet inside my plastic pod it felt like was the newest member of big brother. Had a more comfortable sleep curiosity of police scotland the bed was rock solid!! Too top it all off while me and the misus were doing our thing someone knocked on the wall sure it added a bit of spice to things but I would really like a bit of privacy

A three night stay booked. I have never stayed in such a disgusting hotel in my life. Yes I know it is a budget hotel but it's not budget prices. The room was tiny with a very small window. A tv screen the size of laptop nowhere to put your clothes, the bathroom/ toilet was a pod that you could barely move in and if you were in the bed next to the wall you had to climb over your partner to get out of the bed to go to the loo. Easyhotel should be ashamed of themselves. No toiletries and no room cleaning service unless you wanted to pay! After 1 night we decided to lose the money we paid and go somewhere else a bit more up market. This as I said was disgusting and really not the cleanest of places either.
