The restaurant in the hotel was phenomenal! Every meal I ate here was delicious. It is walking distance from shopping, historical sites, and I loved the overall vibe. I will definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to Edinburgh.

Wonderful location for first time visitors. Staff is so lovely and check in and out fast. Very convenient to have the restaurant and bar downstairs! Tip - avoid first floor by cleaner closet or you’ll hear the door frequently in the early morning.

Gorgeous room and all the tea/coffee facilities in the room with milk in the fridge! Sadly a few things in the room look a little tired (door lock and bathroom sink) and the location of the rooms is not ideal. Having to walk through to the kitchen and then through two rather grubby hostel-style doors&stairs felt very 1-2* not 4*. And the Friday night karaoke alongside no AC in the room meant a very sleepless first night. I'd recommend requesting a room higher up in the building as we were the first room in the hotel and it was directly above the bar and on ground level to the street and kitchen deliveries happened right outside the window!
