The room and bathroom was quite small, but clean and peaceful. Staff was very friendly both in reception and in breakfast room. Breakfast was versatile (toast, porridge, haggis, eggs, berries, fruits...) and included to room price. Kenneth Mackezie building where we were located felt like dormitory and had no elevator. Hotel is located 5 to 10 minutes from Royal Mile.

Clean and decent but very minimal. Room on third floor, and no lift. Small room, tiny bathroom. Room was hot at night - windows open, but curtain must be closed to block the light (in summer). Ask for a fan. Bed comfortable. Breakfast is tasty and ample, served in a Common Room with TV, sofas, pool table. This is basically... More

I was met with a really friendly welcome. The room was basic but had everything I needed, including a hair dryer. Breakfast was ample, with buffet and choice of cooked breakfast. Also - importantly - as much coffee as I could drink. It was lovely and quiet - save the gulls' cries - and I had a good night's sleep.... More

The hotel location was good as it was only a short walk down hill to the centre of the old town, the staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast was excellent, there is no lift so be prepared to carry bags up the stairs or request a lower floor room, the room itself was small but cosy.

The Accomodation is basic but spotlessly clean and everything (bathroom/TV) functions perfectly. Comfortable bed & room, although small, well thought out in design. The staff were excellent - polite, friendly and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast excellent and prompt and efficient service. Brilliant location for city centre.

This establishment should be referred to a hostel not a hotel. Run down student accommodation. Room smelt if urine as soon as I opened the door. TV did not work. Very noisy with rowdy students all night, no sleep. Too expensive for what it was. Would only recommend to people back packing. Pictures on website very deceiving. Bathroom was tiny.

This is an old university hall of residence, converted to hotel for visiting staff and the public. What you get are well appointed, clean rooms, where everything works. However you don't get a concierge, room service,etc. If you want that go to the 10 Hill Place Hotel, next door, also owned by the University. Beds are comfortable, showers warm, internet... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
