Edinburgh Conference Centre
Ranked #143 of 151 Hotels in Edinburgh
Reviewed August 28, 2008

I stayed here over a weekend during the Edinburgh Festival. The room was small (well, it is just a dorm room) but very clean and the en suite bathroom had plenty of hot water and was immaculate. Although it's about a 20 minute bus ride into the city centre, it is situated in a very quiet and peaceful park-like setting, and I liked that. The busses run about every ten minutes right from the university. The bed was comfortable, fresh towels, tea and coffee was supplied everyday, and I always felt safe, as a solo female traveler. The cafeteria served hot meals everyday and the prices were reasonable -- about 3 pounds for breakfast, around 6 pounds for dinner (I wasn't there at lunchtime). For the price, it was a great set up and I would definitely stay there again. It was just clean, basic accommodations at a reasonable cost.
