York Hotel looks far from newly refurbished, the staff was very unfriendly, most of the rooms are located near the York Street which is very noisy from traffic (and the rooms are not noise isolated making it is hard to sleep), the beds are uncomfortable, and they do not have wireless in any part of the hotel even though they say that they do. Wireless internet was the main reason for us to get rooms here since it meant that we could read mail, and keep in touch with colleagues at home while staying one week in Edinburgh.
The only good thing about this place is that it is next to Edinburgh bus station, but that does not mean that it is easy to find. This place does not have any signs at all telling that this is a hotel, only the street number tells you that you are at the right place, and you just have to hope that the nameless door bell lead you to York Hotel.
After 1 night here we all agreed that it was unacceptable to stay here one more night. We had no trouble finding a 3 star hotel that was far better in every way, and also much cheaper than York Hostel.
