Large airy room. Very clean.
Lots of stairs Stale croissants at breakfast
Friendly helpful staff Very comfortable, bed Great location
Good size rooms, tea an coffee available, very clean hotel, staff were very nice and helpful
Door to boiler in our room kept opening all night an the bathroom door locked itself from the inside whilst we were sleeping (creepy). A little bit noisy from traffic if window open. Also unable to check in till 2pm
Perfect location, walking distance of all central attractions, shops and restaurants. Lovely place to stay, would go back.
No lift and lots of stairs but this wasn't a big deal for us.
A bit noisy outside
a good location for the shopping centre i was needing to visit
Had a great view from the hotel but the room was 4 floors up and NO lift was in the hotel and this is not mentioned on the hotel website. carpark very small
Perfect location, walking distance to everything. Great pubs close by.
We weren't happy to be on the third floor but the room was great so that made up for the climb.
Good location, within reasonable walking distance to local attractions with the added bonus of car parking to the rear of the building. Would defo stay here again .....
Continental breakfast offered but at an extra cost, at £6.00 per person If I remember rightly), not included in price of room - so we opted to go to Witherspoons at the end of the road for a full Scottish breakfast instead
Great views, good bathroom
Wasn't expecting room to be split into 2 parts by stairs. Appartment on top floor - lots of stairs to get to it.
location it was just basically a street away from playhouse n princess st the other way .the rooms very warm and plenty of room loads of clothes hanging room. trams stop right outside of hotel which was handy st james shopping mall 5 mins walk away
the only grumble I have is I would have preferred a choice of a cooked breakfast instead of a continental
I stayed in the family room it was really spacious and immaculate. .i read some mixed reviews but based on my stay i would rate my room 8 out of 10.
I paid for Superior room and was given double room on the 4th floor with no lift. Heating was not working and at first they weren't listening then after an hour arguing they gave me different and supperior room. no parking, Continental breakfast was rubbish. Worst thing there is no manager availble not even on the phone so no one can make the decision.
We booked last minute for bed and breakfast but it didnt say anywhere when booking that it was only a continental breakfast included. I wouldnt have chosen the breakfast option if I had known. (Which would have saved us £10), to get a nice breakfast somewhere in the local area.
Friendly & helpful staff. Nice location.
Room walls seem to be rather thin as I can clearly hear people speaking outside.
Terrible smell of paint and redecorating in the hotel. Pretty awful really. So should be fine when they are done. But worse: we couldn't open the windows at all. They had been nailed to the frame for safety purposes! So no fresh air - and no ventilation in bathroom what so ever: pretty poor when you know they've just refurbished their rooms. Fresh air is quite nice, you know, especially at this price (£200 a night…) We wouldn't go there again.
Easy to find, staff were helpful
Room was cold, heating not working in rooms
The views, both bath and shower, the homeliness and friendliness and close to main streets and malls
The hot water hadn't been turned on for our room problem was resolved very quickly though and on one of the chairs in room there was a broken leg which made it unstable
The location in relation sites is excellent. Decor was great
Room was cold although the heating was working. A fan heater was supplied to supplement the central heating. No fridge or minibar
Our room was pleasantly decorated and very comfortable. We had a wonderful view from our window. Staff were very friendly and the continental breakfast was extremely good. The hotel is near to Princes Street and within easy walking distance of the old town too.
We were right at the top of the building (no lift) - but the view made the climb worth while!
Would have loved a bath . Wet room shower was great though.
Great view over Firth of Forth from 4th floor.
Location Car parking Good toiletries Nice towels
We booked a superior room but there was nothing superior about it. We weren't in the main building but had rooms 2 doors down at no 12 No wifi at no 12 Mattress too soft
Very clean room excellent bathroom heated floor etc fab fluffy towels great shower free toiletries ,very warm and big tv. Reception staff and dining room staff very polite clean and helpfull. Breakfast very good Lovely fresh pastries fruit toast fresh coffee or tea cold cuts cheeses yogurts Staff so attentive always asking if you need anything They even arranged a wakeup call and early breakfast for me at 5am So I could catch my flight. They have free wifi very fast conx I stayed in room 112 Few stair down from main floor This was very good value for Edinburgh!
No complaints to report
I liked the location, friendliness of staff. We had a two nights stay and the towels and toiletries were changed daily, beds made, room tidied and vacuumed, cups washed. There was plenty of tea, coffee, sugar and milk. The room we had was large and warm. Beds very clean, cosy and comfortable.
We were in a basement room and would liked to have opened a window a little but we were right at the car park and felt it would have been unsafe to do so.
Close to George and Princess St (CBD) Easy walk everywhere
