We did not like the fact that when checking in they claimed that Expedia had booked us into a small room and not the 2 story apt. displayed on the Expedia web site. Fortunately we had a copy of our reservation which included a photo of the room which enabled my wife to negotiate a transfer to the accommodation we had booked. Expedia needs to review its website to show the various prices and sizes of accommodation and inform purchasers that the hotel is attached to a student residence. We would recommend this property to family and friends for location, design of units and value for price.

It is a 10-15 min walk to the Royal Mile which gives you easy acess to tourist attractions/dining/shopping. It is in a student living building with a friendly front office.our room looked nothing like the pictures. The back of the buildong is a grocery store which made our side the supply side of the store. Big trucks were beeping when backing right under the windows from early mornings to late nights. If you are looking for a quite sleep, it is not your place. The toiletries included a single bottle shower gel/shampoo combined (no conditioner or body lotion) so plan accordingly. We stayed 3 nights. The phone (for contact with the reception) and the safe were dead: we signaled it to reception but neither was fixed for the duration of our stay. The facility does not have a parking. They give you a voucher for a discount in a nearby city psrking. It is not far but it is a steep climb up a hill so drop of your luggage first before driving your car to the parking gatage.
