Very good value for money even though there are no facilities as such. The room and the bathroom were both very clean and nicely decorated. Nice comfortable, large bed. Good location. Very useful that they have a locked room where you can leave luggage. I...More
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. Spacious and clean rooms, however some maintenance would improve. Some sound proofing on the windows to reduce the street noise & new wallpaper and paint. As it was starting to peel in the bedroom, plus there cracks and stains...More
Visiting Edinburgh and working during the Fringe Festival regularly, the need for a escape from the craziness is important. The Frederick House hotel was a simple and cosy refuge. The rooms are basic yet comfortable, clean and warm.

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured... More
I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured? Presumably the whole hotel is insured by the owner, but I don't think that will benefit a guest in any way. The rooms are reasonably secure in that they have keys (like all hotel rooms).
My basic feeling about this hotel is that it is quite overpriced for what it is (which is sort of a two-star hotel somehow awarded four stars), especially since there is no restaurant, no bar, no real lobby, and no charm. It is central, clean, inoffensive and has comfortable beds. The question is what you want to pay for that.
