Score from 720 reviews Very good
We liked location and being able to walk everywhere, particularly the university for open day. Hotel was spotlessly clean, staff friendly, approachable and helpful. Breakfast included which was adequate with plenty of choice. Free wifi for 2 devices.
Able to check in early and also leave cases on day of departure
Friendly & helpful staff. Good basic breakfast. Clean comfortable room. Good location, walking distance from everything.
Location was ideal.
Access to public transportation was iffy, but that is not the fault of the hotel, but rather of the transit system. While we were there some of the busses changed routes without notice because of the crowds of the Fringe Festival. Most annoying.
Very convenient situation. Very friendly & helpful reception. Clean room. Good breakfast.
The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. It was close to all the city's attractions. We would use this hotel again when we come back to the Fringe in future years.
The room had no view and no porridge on the menu!
You know what to get with a Holiday Inn facility. Showers are always good, rooms vary in size depending on location. Some mattresses are lumpy. The towels always clean and fluffy.
Wish the rooms were more spacious were good for a quick overnight visit but when you are staying for more that one night as we were in Edinburgh the rooms were a bit short on size.
So central, staff always helpful.
Located in Old Town, this hotel is on a walking distance from the Royal Mile and most of the top attractions in Edinburgh, but not too close so that it offers a quiet night after a long day of entertainment. The hotel itself offers good value for your money. The rooms have everything you need and a decent breakfast is served every morning.
The room we had, was connected with another room by a double door, probably to connect the two rooms in case a family would visit. Unforunately, our neighbours were not very quiet people, making loud telephone calls and waking us up early in the morning.
we were only allowed 2 Wi-Fi accesses and we had 3 people, therefore 3 devices. and renewing it each day was tedious
Location! Friendly & helpful desk staff.
Disappointing breakfast, pesky key card system to work the lift, general sense of being economy class in small details like tea tray, plastic cup in bathroom-- which did not seem to this inexperienced traveler to match the price tag!
Noise from people in the street disturbed our sleep.
The location was great . All was well especially the ladies at the front desk were very helpful and pleasant
The varieties at breakfast was very limited ,If they are offering sausage at least they should gave choice of chicken or pork but the only option was pork. they really need to understand that some people don't eat pork. The WiFY was very limited to two unites and the pass ward was changed every single day and has to be picked up from the reception which is such a pain.
The location was handy for all the attractions and in walking distance of the castle. One of the few hotels providing breakfast. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room helped with costs. Free wifi. Friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff.
Having to pay £200.a night!!!
Welcome by staff and their service at breakfast and tourist information
The receptionist, Amanda, was very friendly and very helpful with directions etc. It's a great location for the Royal Mile, Castle etc yet still nice and peaceful. We were very pleased with our choice.
There was nothing to dislike.
Breakfast not great.
Great staff, very helpful. We got there early in the day. With an afternoon check in date, they were more than glad to hold our bags so we could 'travel light' while we saw the city. Located just off the Royal Mile. Great location.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Quiet area meant good nights sleep. Good breakfast. Excellent free Wi-Fi. Good location near to city centre.
Room too small for two adults and two teenagers (aged 14 and 17). Sofa bed not comfortable for teenagers. Expensive for a small room.
Amazing location and very close to the city center. Quite neighborhood so did not get woken up in the night due to bars being close by etc. ... Very friendly staff and parking was available a couple of blocks down the road. Additionally got 10% of the parking fee from the hotel which always helps
Breakfast was a bit ordinary with the same thing every day.
great location, easy walk to the royal mile Great friendly staff
Convenient and quite central. Breakfast was good. Easy access to room at ant time.
Needed to keep windows closed at night as busy road outside.
Location was great. Staff were extremely polite and helpful.
More cooked breakfast options. Bed was uncomfortable. It sloped. Needs a padded headboard too.
