Never did I ever think I’d stay in a “hotel” that was a box. Where to start…. Perhaps the fact that I could sit on the toilet AND shower at the same time. Or the fact that I could have been anywhere in my 6x4 cell. Two people have to operate a one in one out system. One sits on the bed if the other needs to get in the “toilet cupboard”. £5 to leave two bags before the 3pm check in, with a 10am check out, so another £5 to leave them the next day also. Disgusting!! Rude staff. Tiny rooms, far too much noise on the night. Completely ruined what was meant to be a great weekend away. Bedding was clean but literally the only ok thing about this so called hotel. Don’t bother wasting money to stay here. Pay the extra and book somewhere at least with a window!!

Hello, easyHotel Edinburgh is disappointed that we were unable to provide you with an easy stay. We are disappointed that you found our room size to be small. easyHotel Edinburgh is a budget hotel that offers space-efficient rooms, designed to meet basic needs. We have tried to maximize the space to provide the most competitive price in the heart of the city center. 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. Facilities such as TV, Wi-Fi or Luggage Storage are accessible at any point and can be added to your stay for a small fee. Of course, these are optional extras and guests can choose to pay only for what they use, which makes the most effective cost savings. We aim to train all our staff to provide excellent customer service, therefore, we are sorry you found them to lack it. We will investigate this matter and provide any training we find necessary to prevent this situation from happening again in the future. We understand that our concept is not for everybody this is why we place such importance on reading all the information together with house rules as check-out time as opposed to checking only the location and price. Thank you again for your time, and our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Best regards, easyHotel Edinburgh Team

If you need a room that just a room to sleep and wash in, then it’s perfect. It is in a very accessible location and was clean. It’s very very basic, so if you need to spend more time in the room, book elsewhere. There’s no lift and everything is tight. The price is a bit high for what it is.

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. As a budget-friendly hotel, we offer compact rooms with minimal facilities, which helps us keep our prices down. We do understand that this concept might not be for everyone, which is why we try to encourage our guests to read through all the information we provide before booking anything, as we do provide the exact sizes of the rooms and their photos. Unfortunately, with the size of our hotel, we can't provide a lift, but we do specify this on our websites. We really appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon. Best regards, easyHotel Edinburgh

Stayed two nights in Sept 2021. Yes it was cheap but you still expect a minimum level of amenities which was completely lacking. £5 for the TV remote per day. £10 for the WIFI for 24 hours. The worlds cheapest and most rubbish iron. No kettle or tea making facilities in your room. For two nights if you would like the most basic of comforts listed above then add £35 onto your bill. In which case then move away from Easy Hotels and add that £35 onto what you were prepared to pay and book somewhere nicer which offers the above for FREE. It’s 2021, these are minimal expectations these days, not added extras. Room was on the top floor which was spot on to the fair. Amazing views looking out onto The Mile. Room very small but did a job for a couple in their 30s. Just a shame the things listed above weren’t accessible. Wouldn’t stay here again.

It was bloody tiny. And when i say tiny, i mean TINY! You walked in and someone had to get on the bed to let the other person in. There was no storage space what so ever so what floor space you had was taken up by the suitcase. When you showered, you were also flooding the room as the shower was poorly drained. Also paid extra money for a window which you couldn't even open with a view of their dirty roofs. Considering there wasnt aircon - paying for the window was completely pointless and money grabbing. And to top it off, when you had all the lights off and blinds shut (oh yes forgot to say you had to climb over the bed frame to reach the window to close the blind) the room was still bright due to the evacuation light, which obviously you need (no qualms about that) but that is how small the room is that i thought i was at blackpool illuminations.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time and providing us with your feedback regarding your stay at easyHotel Edinburgh. We are very sorry that your experience with us was not satisfactory on this occasion. We do try our best to make our Guests happy and provide the best service that we can. All the information about the room sizes and prices are available on the website before making a booking. We understand that you may not like the concept of our hotel but we do offer cheap prices, clean en-suite rooms and a great location. We are situated in one of the historical buildings on the main street of the city. For the safety of our Guests and neighbors the windows have to remain sealed. Health and Safety regulations also prevent us from having windows that open. Vents and extractors are used to provide cold and warm air to the rooms. Reception has the ability to control the room temperature at all times and in future we would request that you inform us so we can regulate the temperature. Kind regards, easyHotel Edinburgh

If you were an EasyJet enthusiast you'd love this hotel, with its orange interiors and decor pulled straight out of the cockpit. However, if you're looking for budget and ease, you may also choose this hotel. It's right on the main Street in Edinburgh which is ideal for getting around. The rooms are smaller than London "apartments" so they're not messing around when they say the rooms are tiny. If you love orange, this is the hotel for you. In true EasyJet fashion, though, they love to get more money out of you. There's a TV in your room that you have to pay extra for if you wanted to use it, and WiFi also comes with a charge. It's as if easyJet truly comply to the capitalist way of life and charge for every single amenity on site; I won't be surprised if they charge for shower use next. For convenience, it's fine. For a nights stay when you're not spending longer than a few hours in bed there, it's fine. For everything else - it's not.
