    The location in just off the Royal mile and most desired attractions are in walking distance.
  • Turki
    Perfect location. Great staff and very helpful. If you like the concept of micro hotel, I think this one is great option. Clean room. Very quite in the night.
  • Cmreyes
    The hotel is well located, right on the Royal Mile to be able to walk to different prime spots. The people very kind, the place very nice and clean.

    It was so quiet inside even with Fringe festival events going on outside the front door. Our window looked to the inside walls but an art piece was put on the outside wall...nice touch. Friendly, helpful staff and comfortable room.

    Location was great! Breakfast was a good value, and available times were convenient for both business travelers and those who could sleep in a little. Reception staff always pleasant and helpful with transportation needs and general questions.
  • Leland
    Facilities were great, room was very nice...I would ask not to be in one of the corner rooms...did not care for the bathroom. I prefer the other bathrooms in rooms I've stayed in the numerous times I was there before.

    This hotel is right in Hunter square, local and an easy walk to everything . We were there to go to the Military tattoo and to watch the “fringe” events. It was perfect for that, but it was noisy.
