Great location but it’s just a very basic room with a bed and a bathroom. VERY NOISY!!! Water in the shower kept getting either very hot or very cold during my shower.. no way to get a steady temperature. They gave me a room between the elevator and the stairs so every time a person came in and out, I heard it in my room. Not many amenities (I am being kind) and, the coffee machine in the lobby didn’t work. Wouldn’t stay there again.

Very convenient location but the tiles in the grout between the tiles in the shower was quite moldy and the walls in the bedroom were scuffed up (looked quite tired and like it needed a coat of paint). Overall was not a bad experience but don't think we would go back.

Probably the best location for its centrality to all the sights of Edinburgh. Most tourist venues are easily walkable from this hotel. The area directly around the hotel are full of excellent and historic pubs. The room is small, but if you came to Edinburgh for the hotel room, you are doing Edinburgh The room is comfortable and clean, and the staff is great. Awesome place to stay.

Good place, RUDE staff
This was a nice hotel in a great location. They’ve done some trendy marketing which is nice, maps on the walls, etc. But the front desk lady almost double charged us and did not appear to make any effort to make it right. We had paid already through but she insisted it was pay upon arrival. She was rude, kept saying “you can’t check in until you pay” to me in front of other guests. Finally we found our credit card statement online and showed her we had paid. She made a two minute phone call and said yes everything is paid. Never apologized, barely looked at us. We traveled for 16 days and stayed in various cities and hotels and she was the rudest person we met on our entire trip. It’s a great hotel, too bad it was tainted by how we were treated. There’s too many other great places. No one should put up with that. Good news, we spent the next four nights at the Brewdog and it was heavenly! ❤️❤️❤️
