Okay for a 3 star hotel but not my cup of tea!

Posted 13-Sep-2014
Pros: Great location!
Cons: Better blinds to block out the light. Larger TV or mount so viewable from both sides of the bed. Install room safes.
Location: The location 2 min. from the bus & train. Two minute walk to the royal mile, Castle w/in 15 min, close to National Gallery. Several good pubs close by
I did realize when booked the hotel that the room only had the bare minimum but it didn't even have a closet. The television was mount to the wall so no arm extension to move it, it lined up w/ the far right side of the bed so it was barely visible from the left side of the bed. Buffet breakfast not worth paying the extra for. The location is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Excellence 1 block from the railroad station.

Posted 11-Sep-2014
Pros: Clean
Location: Center of the old town within walking distance of the castle.
We travel Europe by train. What a positive experience when you can walk one block and find a super clean Five Star hotel staffed by Five star employees

Good location

Posted 08-Sep-2014
Expensive for a budget Hotel for a Thursday & Friday night stay, but room 720 on top floor was quite large but clean & quiet. Would benifit from an addition of wardrobe & at least one bedside cabinet you could move for whoever turns the alarm off. There was some shelving & a rail for hanging but all felt temporary. Nice large wetroom & toilet with nice wide door which I think would be handy for a disabled person, although no bath. Not much of a view of apartments overlooking you but if you stuck your head out of the window you coud see up Cockburn str. Continental breakfast to be payed for extra but we used the Malt Shovel pub oppisite for a full English. All in a good stay but if I were to stay there again I would be looking for a better deal. Excelent Location with the old town & Royal mile just behind it & across Waverley bridge to Princess street etc in front of it.

Modern functional hotel

Posted 05-Sep-2014
Pros: Location - Noon check out - Price
Cons: Sockets in bedroom for kettle - Only one close to floor/carpet presents potential H&S risk
Prompt efficient check-in - Room available on my arrival @ 11.30am - Limited space for hanging clothes (no wardrobe as such) - Compact shower room but fine for sole traveller - Ideally located for Edinburgh Waverley station

Nice hotel in fantastic location.

Posted 01-Sep-2014
Booked this hotel for a couple of nights to celebrate my partners birthday. Picked the hotel because of the location and wasn't disappointed; is just a couple of minutes walk from the royal mile, only about 5-10min from the castle, and the same from Princess St. Despite that the hotel was quite and even during the fringe didn't notice any noise overnight. Happy to recommend is hotel and will probably stay here again when in Edinburgh.

Modern, sleek hotel near Edinburgh castle.

Posted 27-Aug-2014
Pros: his and hers blankets (no blanket stealing issues), the hairdryer was awesome (Mambo I think), and the tea kettle. High quality appliances!!!
Cons: Shower water easily drifts out into the bathroom floor-you have to turn it to face the wall. Didn't have a clock, minibar or access to ice machine.
Location: EVERYTHING IS NEARBY. You are practically sleeping in the Edinburgh Castle.
Check in was easy, room is clean and comfortable. Quiet. Professional staff. Fantastic view. Lots of restaurants right up the street.

Handy to everything

Posted 23-Aug-2014
This hotel is really good value.....close to train station and all the main areas like the royal mile and princes st. Was clean and comfortable and would definitely stay again Only real problem was getting bags to the rooms as there are many stairs to conquer in spite of there being lifts.......so if you have really heavy bags you might struggle like us

Great location

Lovely basic hotel. A bit pricey based on advertised price from £59 (I paid £134) but this was due to the time of year
