Hôtel accueillant et bien placé

Posted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: son confort et son emplacement
Très bonne expérience. L'emplacement de l'hôtel fait que la plupart des centres d'intérêts peuvent être visités à pied.

Beautiful hotel right in the middle of Edinburgh

Posted Mar 20, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, good breakfast, very nice interior, beautiful details, a Tunnocks Tea Cake on my desk every day, clean room, nice shower, comfy bed.
Cons: The wifi did not really reach my room, so I had to take care of all my online business while being out for a smoke or having breakfast in the pub.
Location: Right around the corner from the castle and other attractions like the Royal Mile, Camera Obscura, Greyfriars Kirk, lots of pubs, princes street etc.
The hotel is really nice, perfectly located if you want to explore the city, right around the corner from the castle and other attractions. The room (single bedroom) was small, but cozy and very nicely equipped. Nice big tv, heater that worked extremely fast and well, kettle, tea, coffee, hairdryer, etc. Staff at reception was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served in the pub right next to the hotel, very friendly and accommodating staff too, huge portions, nice food. The room has some universal outlets, which was perfect because I had forgotten my travel adapter.

Would definitely stay here again!

Great, quirky hotel. Cute room, small but good storage so size wasn't an issue at all. Clean and well maintained. Very close to the castle, great restaurants and all the good sights in Edinburgh. Loved this place and will definitely stay there again!

Kleines Hotel mir super Lage

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Hotel liegt sehr zentral und ist leicht zu finden. Die Mitarbeiter an sich sind sehr freundlich. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind von hier aus gut zu erreichen. Frühstück war von der Qualität her gut und Abends in der Bar lässt es sich gut entspannen. Leider hab ich auch ein paar Minuspunkte. Mein Zimmer wurde an einem Tag nur zur Hälfte gereinigt obwohl ich das "Bitte putzen Sie mein Zimmer" Schild den ganzen Tag an der Tür hängen ließ. An einem Morgen gab es wohl ein Problem in der Küche da ich 45min. auf meine Bestellung warten musste. Leider hat mich der Frühstücksservice auch volle 45min. ignoriert.

Fantastic city hotel, brilliant location

Posted Feb 18, 2015
Pros: Decor is modern and fun, staff are fantastic, location is wonderful
Location: Easy walk to the castle, Princes street gardens and the Scott Monument and city centre. Plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants on the doorstep.
Enjoyed a wonderful midweekl stay at the Grassmarket hotel. Staff were welcoming and friendly from the word go. We dropped our bags off in the morning as we had an early flight and were offered complimentary tea or coffee before we left to explore the city. Check in that afternoon was brief and easy and they had taken our bags up to our room for us which was really wonderful. We also got the surprise of a gorgeous box of chocolates and a birthday card beautifully presented waiting on us in the room. I had only mentioned in passing correspondence that the break was a birthday gift and this little touch really put a smile on our faces. The staff were so approachable and friendly and really made us feel like nothing was a problem to them. The room was fantastic, we were in the back part of the hotel so although it was a bit trickier to get to it was quiet and there was absolutely no noise disturbance at all during our stay. All staff that we encountered, including the manager, Chris, were so friendly and genuinely seemed interested and happy to help with anything from directions to food recommendations. The complimentary tea and coffee and pick 'n' mix in the reception area is such a lovely touch, as are the Tunnocks teacakes in the room. The sound system in the bedroom and bathroom that allows you to hook up your own music was fantastic. All the little touches really add to the overall experience of the hotel and made our stay so memorable. We will most definitely be back.

Very cute hotel, with large rooms

Posted Feb 8, 2015
Pros: clean, unique, excellent location.
Unfortunately only had one night to stay. Was very impressed with the location and the uniqueness of the hotel. By far a very large room in European standards.

The Grassmarket experience

Posted Feb 4, 2015 on Hotels.com
Grassmarket is a great location and the hotel had funky decor which gave off hostel vibes but 4 star hotel quality. The room was a bit cosy in size but the tea cakes were most appreciated!
