The location is perfect - you are 10 minutes walk to anything, and situated between George Street and Rose for pubs and restaurants. Shopping is right around the corner.
I stayed here for a weekend with friends and had two rooms. They had a 'twin' room which was perfect - one double bed and another twin in a separate area of the room, they had lots of privacy and the room was nice and big. We stayed in the double, flat screen tv, minibar, and a nice bathroom - fairly large room as well. The decor is really nice, and it's nice and quiet - we didn't hear any noise.
There isn't any parking at the hotel - but we found free parking on Great Kings Street from Friday night to Sunday - only about 4 blocks from the hotel.
The letdown was the front desk staff - useless. We asked for a recommendation of a nearby pub that had great Scottish food and her answer was 'i don't know what you like'...really? Another time we asked the price of a tour and another girl said 'i don't know' (no offer to look it up etc) and handed us a pamphlet - the price was on the front. Not friendly or warm at all - a real downfall. Also - wifi only works in the lobby which wasn't ideal.
