Stayed here three nights. Liked it.
The place seems brand new: everything is clean and new.
Rooms are chic, well designed and decorated, but minimalist (e.g. no phone; no wardrobe; few sockets).
Bed is v comfortable but pillows are big and squashy and don't provide neck support.
The curtains are not blackout curtains; fortunately it wasn't very sunny when I stayed.
Shower room is compact but modern and clean.
I asked for, and got, a very quiet room (there are several on each floor that overlook an inner courtyard) - no noise either from neighbours or from the street.
About 2 minutes walk from the train station and handy for both old and new towns.
Only big issue is the wifi - although it's free, it slows right down to zero at peak times.
I didn't try the breakfast, which seemed overpriced.
Overall: a very good base for exploring Edinburgh.
