We've been here before and it was great, but they've recently refurbished the place which makes it even better. From welcome to departure, the staff were first-rate. It's inexpensive by Edinburgh standards, but it doesn't have a cheap feel about it. There are other Edinburgh hotels that are twice or three times the price that feel a lot cheaper. The rooms are standard Travelodge, but refurbishment of the rooms has led to some nice redecoration with pictures and a shower that works really well - it is powerful and keeps its temperature steady. The beds are very comfy and the double glazing is now, well, quadruple! Rather than replace the windows, they simply added further double glazed windows inside. What a great idea - there is NO noise from what can be quite a noisy city, but they are all still openable for ventilation!
The city centre location makes this a wonderful place to stay - 100m from the Royal Mile, less than ten minutes walk from the railway station (along Jeffrey Street, not the way Google Maps will take you!), 15 minutes to the Castle. There are enough eateries round about to give one no need to step into the New Town, one can just stay in the atmosphere and history of the Old Town!
If you want a quiet room, ask them for one when you arrive. They'll fix you up if they can. The room we had was brilliant - this tends to be a popular place for hen parties and the like, and there were two in the hotel during our stay ... at the same time. Did we hear anything of them? Not a peep!
The bar/restaurant is OK for a quick drink before you go out, but it doesn't have the atmosphere of the city! The breakfast is worth having at the price - well cooked and "all you can eat".
All in all a great place to stay if you want to experience the best bits of this beautiful city.
