Reviewed February 7, 2014

Clearly a former Travelodge (I could tell by the font on the signs - how sad is that?!), this hotel has been tarted up to make it more funky and fun. Lovely reception staff, and an amazing central location makes for an extremely good value stay - £49 for a night is excellent, and includes a HAIRDRYER. That made this lady very very happy indeed. It's the simple, little things, eh girls?!

Didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but went over the road to Pret a Manger (my brekkie of choice when away on business). Have stayed in Sleeperz, the city brand, previously, and was similarly impressed. I would definitely return.

PS There was one funny moment on check-in when I asked where a single woman might eat, undisturbed, of an evening. I was recommended to try the Kama Sutra, the curry house just up the road, without a hint of irony. Made me laugh...

We arrived from the airport on the bus which stopped opposite the hotel. It was so central we were able to walk everywhere, the castle, the mound, the shops and of course the pubs. The room, although small was clean tidy with a reasonable size bathroom. There was no noise from the street and we weren't overlooked.

You get what you pay for..... in my opinion this place was quite good and quite good location. I would surely come back here especially for a quick and cheap city break. We missed breakfast as we had to leave early but would have been happier if they served the full Scottish breakfast instead of the continental breakfast.

similar to a Travelodge type hotel but in my opinion better, as they put a few extras in like toiletries etc. the room we had was kept clean with what we thought was a very comfortable bed, hairdryer and kettle with cups and tea and coffee etc. the bathroom was a decent size, clean etc. Forgot to mention their is a safe in the room too.
The hotel is in a brilliant location with most things within an easy walking distance,castle, shops, pubs, restaraunts and princes street about 1 minutes walk. haymarket and Waverley(main station) are both 5-10 minutes easy and straightforward walk away.
we never tried the hotel breakfast so cant comment but the price looked reasonable just like the room prices,especially when you look at what a really good location it is in. there are also plenty of nearby bus stops aswell if you are thinking of using the public transport, soon to be opened tramline runs outside aswell. Would seriously recommend, when you look at the location and some of the overcharging of other hotels in Edinburgh centre.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night in December. Warm welcome from the guy at the front desk, who was only to eager to highlight what could be seen/done in the area. Room was big, comfy and clean. Good location. Would stay here again.

My girlfriend & I went up to edinburgh for the weekend. We booked accomodation quite late, so alot of the hotels and B&Bs were expensive, but cityroomz was cheap in comparison.
Our room was clean and fairly large. The staff in the reception were friendly & the hotel is centrally located.
Its a good value budget hotel,.
