Score from 663 reviews Very good 8.4/10
Very clean and comfortable, excellent no frills accommodation. Breakfast included in the price. No noise. Good facilities. Excellent central location.
Cooked food at breakfast was below average but alternatives available. Room small but more than adequate.
Location & value for money
Breakfast poor choice & times could be a bit later
I requested a double room and was given a twin . When I told reception I was told that doubles were not available as the hotel was fully booked. This should have been pointed out when I booked it.
Room and bedding
The only thing that let the place down was .Very poor sausage and watery Scrambled egg. Better to offer bacon sandwich and forget eggs and sausage. Rest of the breakfast offer was good
Staff very professional (if a bit surly). Clean, adequate, functional. No frills but everything you need is there. Breakfast a little uninspiring but acceptable.
Room was a few metres from the main road. Kept awake by Edinburgh party-goers until 4.30am. Wouldn't stay here again unless guaranteed a room away from the road
location breakfast staff good sound insulation
Great location and very clean.
Not the cheapest but Edinburgh in summer is busy so guess that reflects in the price.
Staff very helpful. Location is well situated in centre of Edinburgh.
Poor value-for-money and rooms are rather basic. Free WiFi T&C indicates that you agree to receive offers from various companies (spam), there is no opting out.
Very small rooms
Grt location very comfortable and clean.
Location on the edge of the main part of town so easy to walk to most destinations. The new tram to the airport stops a minute walk away.
Relative to the price paid, the room was very small and the beds a bit short on comfort. Noise was a problem, both from outside and due to a creaky floor and lightweight doors. The included breakfast fell short of continental European standards.
Comfortable bed and clean room and hotel.
Breakfast area was chaotic. Needs rethinking.
Really good location for princes street and royal mile. Would stay here again.
I did not dislike anything, excellent value for money.
Limited seating in restaurant.
Breakfast. Hotel a bit pricey for quality it offers.
Good price for the room and free breakfast
Noise late at night and room a bit basic
Very handy location for all attractions clean friendly Helpful staff
No bacon for breakfast
lovely room very clean lots of choice for breakfast no complaints at all would use this hotel again very nice.
We had booked as we were going to a show at the Playhouse - location was excellent.
Couple of relatively minor things .... 1) the hospitality tray in the room was poorly stocked - poor coffee, and no biccies! 2) The bed (for us) was far too soft, and the room was quite stuffy. As a result I didn't sleep well, and 3) the shower stall doesn't have a door, just a curtain. I found it impossible to shower without flooding the bathroom. I had a very pleasant shower, but spent the next 10minutes using towels to mop the floor.
Clean hotel, near the Playhouse. Good breakfast
Location excellent. Very clean and spacious room for city centre.
Breakfast room very busy and extremely warm.
