Great location with a nice view of the castlePosted Dec 16, 2014
We arrived in the morning, and we asked for a room with view of the castle. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, sent me message when the room was ready while we went out sightseeing. Room was big and clean, and the view was really lovely! Will definitely go back!!!!

Excellent location with helpful staffPosted Dec 10, 2014
Had a long weekend stay in Edinburgh. First time visitng and fell in love with the city and would definitely stay in this hotel again. Location was perfect with a pick of traditional pubs just across the road. On check in the lovely ladies asked if was out first time in Edinburgh, when we said we they offered advice on restaurants or any sightseeing we needed help with. Felt like nothing was too much trouble and can't recommend it enough.

Zentrale Lage in der AltstadtPosted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Das Zimmer und das Bad
Cons: Das Continental breakfast könnte etwas mehr Variationen an Wurst und Käse enthalten, da es jeden Tag nur die immer gleichen drei Sorten gibt.
Location: Ideal, um Besichtigungen in der Altstadt durchzuführen. Wer den Schwerpunkt auf Einkaufen legen möchte, solltel in der Nähe der George St. absteigen.
Einziger Kritikpunkt war, dass das Servicepersonal teilweise sehr laut agierte. Das Eindecken der Tische mit Geschirr und Besteck geschah zum Teil so laut, wie ich es sonst in vergleichbarer Form noch nie erlebt habe. Dies mag zum Teil an den steinernen Tischplatten gelegen haben, auf denen keine Tischdecken lagen, zum anderen wurden Flaschen und Besteckkästen ebenfalls ohne Rücksicht auf anwesende Gäste sehr lautstark befüllt. War man als Gast darauf nicht vorbereitet, da man das Personal nicht im Auge hatte, erschrak man regelrecht.

DisappointedPosted Oct 25, 2014
This hotel tries to be trendy and upscale but is far from it and not worth the money. We did have a nice view of the castle but I imagine there are many hotels in the area that offer this. We stayed three nights here and wish we had booked elsewhere. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the Royal Mile and 15 minutes to princess street. But there are many hotels closer for the same price. The shower and windows had residue stains, the receptionist who checked us in was very rude, and while the hotel advertises free wifi included in their rate, we were only able to access it in the hallway. The beds and pillows were very hard and the room temperature was either too hot or too cold. The outlets meant for our plugs didn't work, we had to unplug a desk lamp to at least have access to one plug. We also had originally planned to stay for two nights and decided to change our plans and stay an additional night (this was before we saw the hotel condition!) The company would not honor the rate we initially booked at, so we paid just as much for the third night as the first and second combined. Total waste!

Weekend breakPosted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Location, staff.
Location: 10 min walk from train station. Well located for tourist attractions, bars restaurants and shopping. Nice views of castle from some rooms.
Well located for tourist attractions, shopping, bars and restaurants. Some street noise but this is usual in busy city centres. Staff friendly and knowledgable. Would happily recommend this hotel.
