My wife and I booked room in Grassmarket hotel for 2 nights through an online reservation site. The booking was smooth process.
The hotel is well located near to most attractions and has several eatries, cafes and pizza joints around. The check-in was smooth and hassle free. We really like the 'different' decor of the reception, and rooms. They had nice quirky decor complete with board games etc at reception.
We had to take several flights of stairs in all directions to our room - which we found somewhat awkward. The room itself though was quite small (maybe fine by Edinburgh standards), and was uniquely decorated. It had comic printouts all over the wall. The bathroom was decent and everything worked well.
Since we were out most of the time, and did not spend much time in hotel, except to sleep, we did not experience much of their service first hand. But with our limited interaction at reception, and few other times, we think service would be at par.
The hotel is located at a place which was an 'execution center' earlier - hence 'spooky'. - though there is nothing spooky about the neighborhood anymore now.
