We stayed at the Bank one night and then came back 5 days later and stayed one night. The first night we stayed in the Alexander Graham Bell room . It was decorated very nice and was very clean. The second time we stayed we were on the 3rd floor and the headboard was falling off the bed, the toilet was clogged, the top of the lamp on the night stand was wrapped with packing tape and falling off the bottom of the lamp and later we found a dirty towel hanging on the back of the door in the bathroom. I don't believe the room had been cleaned. There is a lot of outside noise on the street. It had a great location on the Royal Mile. The bar downstairs is where people go on Friday and Saturday night, very busy. Dinner was excellent and so were the drinks.When we booked we were told a Scottish breakfast was included, but when we checked in they told us they qiut doing it. The staff is so nice, friendly and helpful. I have mixed feelings, probably would not go back after staying in the dirty room.
