Unless you take great pride in staying at sub-par lodging, thinking you're getting a great deal, I'd pass on Kenneth Mackenzie. You're not getting that great of a deal. This place is okay ... it's clean, the location is good --just a 10 minute walk from the Royal Mile and Waverly train station, and the breakfast was good.
But the room, carpeting, bathroom, and furnishings are way past their prime ... the room hasn't been updated in a long time, if ever. Out of curiosity, I checked at some of the mid-level hotels in the area, and their prices either matched or beat what I was paying. I stayed here in February, and I'm wondering if the price at the Kenneth Mackenzie never varies. The other hotels' prices fluctuate with the season, so I think that in the off-season, you'll get more for your money if you opt for a real hotel instead of a rundown student dorm like the Kenneth Mackenzie. At least, that's the way I'll go next time in Edinburgh.
