Convenient for the Fringe

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Convenient for the Fringe without being too close to the action. Raises its prices significantly in August but then so does every other hotel in Edinburgh. Good breakfast with a coffee machine that plays clasical music every time it brews a cup - most quirky!

Scottish Connection

Posted Jul 30, 2017
Pros: Great staff and the food was very good.
Cons: All is good!!!!
Location: Great location ,an easy walk to the Royal Mile, including the EDB. Castle and Palace. Furthermore the Hay market also very close.
The hotel is within walking distance of the castle and palace. The front desk staff was excellent, and very helpful in giving us directions to the sights we wanted to visit during our short stay. Thanks to them we had a successful and pleasurable stay. I would stay there again the next time I visit.

Poor quality hotel

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: Location to the EICC & Haymarket.
Cons: Overall workmanship in rooms could be improved (painting/finishing). Need more efficient lifts to serve guests getting to rooms. Soft closing doors
Room unfinished despite claims of being "newly refurbished." Very noisy corridor doors. Tiny slow lift - only one working during my stay. Hectic breakfast buffet with no room for the long queue for hot drinks & frantic staff. I wouldn't stay here again.

Brand new renovation but no room at end of bed

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: See above
Location: On tram and bus line. Walked to Portrait Gallery which is a must see.
Great location. Walk to Princes St. On tram line. Shower seal on glass door leaked badly. No room to bring suitcases between bed and wall. Too large a modern standing lamp not useful. Bulb burned out. Clean and smart room but badly designed. No luggage stand. Left on rainy day where roof leaked badly in hallway. Too bad as evening meal was well done and stay was overall great.

There is some work being done outside and in the car park but the interior was really nice. We stayed here after going to a concert at Murrayfield and it was only a 20 mins walk away , which was great. Breakfast was great too.

Well located hotel in central Edinburgh

Posted Apr 3, 2017
Pros: The location and the breakfast service.
Cons: Could definitely do with air conditioning as it was extremely hot even in early spring.
Location: Very close to the Haymarket, and within a few minutes walk from the castle.
The room was large, however it had its flaws such as he strangely tall bed and the fact the room temperature could not be achieved at a temperature lower than 22*C (in March) as the windows don't open fully and there is no air conditioning.
