This hotel is right in the heart of Edinburgh. And close to the Royal Mile. Easy walking distance to shopping and tourist sites. The staff was helpful and courteous. Our room was clean although smaller than expected. The hallway rugs were dirty and in need of a good shampoo or replaced. Foe one night stay it served our purpose well.

This is truly an unbeatable location, right in the heart of Old Town and Royal Mile. It’s a decently nice hotel and had everything we needed. The only reason that it doesn’t get five stars is that rain drains into the room via the windowsill even if the window is shut. This got some of our belongings soaked and it smelled pretty bad.

Pleasant property conveniently situated for a brief stop-over for work. Although over-inflating prices during the Fringe Festival is poor form, in my view.
