“Great location and lovely hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I stayed at this hotel on Monday the 2nd of June 2014, and my experience was fantastic. The price was very affordable given how great the location was! It was very close to everything just a short walk to the castle and all the shops as well as many nice restaurants. The room was modern and very nice as well as very clean with a really comfy bed. The staff were not only very helpful and efficient but also very friendly. House keeping staff done a great job with this room everything was great. I would highly recommend to anyone to go here, I will definitely be returning during my next trip to Edinburgh!

...well ok the location may be slap bang in the city centre and that's probably the reason for paying that kind of cost for a dreadful place.

In fairness - lady in reception got us into a room earlier than expected. That room smelled stale - the window opened all of an inch - saving grace we had a back room so no noise and the bathroom just looked dirty.

The reviews on TA have been great so maybe me and my friends in another room just got unlucky - but the professional photos should be under trade descriptions for how big they make the rooms look!

Don't bother spending the money to stay in somewhere like this - fund somewhere in prettier Stockbridge and have the nice 15 mins walk into town instead.

Thanks for your review, We’re so disappointed and a little confused given the other reviews we’ve received. Could you call the hotel and give us more details? You aren’t in our reservation system so we can’t identify which room stayed in. Kind regards Javeed Anwar

The room was so clean!! And the bed was like a cloud.
It was a little noisy from the road but being so central that is expected. And breakfast was great also.
So impressed with everything for the price.
I will definitely be back.

Cracking place in shandwicke place just off of princes street. Nice room....very nice room in fact for the money. Comfortable bed. The breakfast room has your standard continental breakfast fare and is good. Will definately use again.

Can't believe how good this hotel was considering the price! We arrived three hours before check-in and were allowed to leave our luggage, free of charge, in the hotel until we returned. The reception staff were all brilliantly helpful, especially one lovely lady who we think was called Marie who drew out a map for us and couldn't have been mote helpful. Rooms were decorated in modern style with comfortable beds and remarkably quiet despite the street front location (our room looked out on the street and when the window was shut we barely heard any noise) We really enjoyed our stay in the Cityroomz hotel and are currently recommending it to all of our friends!

We were here for two nights 27 & 28 may. The hotel is very central, a stone throw to the castle and all the touristy essentials. The airport bus is outside the hotel too so very convenient. Staff very polite and helpful. Wifi fantastic! Highly recommended!!

This is a basic hotel but rooms are clean and more than acceptable for an overnight stay. Room included a safe and TV with a tea/coffee tray. Breakfast for £4.95 was fine, as long as you don't expect a full English breakfast. There were some cooked items as well as the usual continental buffet.
Hotel is within walking distance of city centre shops and attractions and I would be happy to stay here again, although I'm not sure I'd want to stay here for a week.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.
