Me and my wife stayed here for 2 nights, mid-week. Free on street parking. It can be a struggle to find a space but once you find one i would leave your vehicle there until your stay is over if possible. From entering the place and checking in to leaving, all the staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. The lady... More

Hi Macamah, thanks for taking time to leave us your feedbacks. We appreciate your favourable comments. We take your point for the parking issue. We are not in the meter zone so it is free to park on street. Although there is restricted parking during weekdays from 9:30am to 11:00am but to find a parking space and leave your car... More

I absolutely love this hotel - it has everything you need. Each room gets complimentary water bottles and tea/hot chocolate/coffee. The mattress is very comfortable and everything is super clean. The location is close to the bus stop and is a 30 minute walk to Royal Mile. Breakfast is continental and/or made to order. They worked with me to provide... More

This is a lovely small hotel which is a bit away from central part of Edinburgh, but has ample public transportation near by. The hotel owners were very helpful with suggesting restaurants and what to see and do in town.

Although the hotel is across town from the airport it provides a quiet location to "reset your clock". The owner, Anjoe, greeted us with a warm welcome and was a source of information during our visit. In addition to the friendly atmosphere the most lasting impression we carried away was the sparkle and cleanliness of the hotel. Situated along a... More

I spent two nights here and had an excellent experience. The staff was helpful upon arrival, the room was immaculate, the breakfast was good, beds comfy, and most importantly (to me), the shower had outstanding water pressure - one of the best I've experienced. It IS a bit tight in the small shower; would probably be tough to maneuver if... More

The hotel is decorated in a very Asian style - lots of black and deep reds - bit odd for Edinburgh. The welcome was warm. The twin room (#4) was downright weird - almost like a forgotten bit stuck on the side of the house. It was long and thin with a strange wooden divider which stopped the TV being... More
