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

Heart of Edinburgh

Posted 11-Aug-2014
You cannot get more central, right in front of Waverley Station at the base of Edinburgh Castle. Awesome. Modern, comfortable and clean hotel. Bit of a maze to get to your room, and there is a second side to the hotel with rooms (when I checked in they neglected to tell me that and I couldn't find my room).

Great budget hotel without feeling like one

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pros: Updated look, very comfortable rooms, good location and good price
Location: Excellent. Close to both the train station and airlink bus. Easy walk to the Royal Mile and castle; across street from Princes Street Gardens.
We had a two day stop as part of a two week trip multiple cities in Europe. Europe is very expensive so we were keeping hotels rooms as reasonable as possible since we spent most of our time outside of our room. Budget hotels in most major European cities mean small and outdated. What a welcome surprise this hotel was while still being close by the major sites.

Great Location

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pros: Modern and clean with great location
Cons: More check in staff. The staff on the desks were too busy for the number of customers arriving and departing.
Location: Great location for train station, old and new town and the castle. Ideal really.
This hotel is clean and comfortable with good modern bathroom facilities and a 24hour bar service. For a city centre hotel I found it perfectly reasonably without being anything fancy. Great location for train station, old and new town and the castle. Ideal really.

No air conditioning

Posted 01-Aug-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Air conditioning
The air conditioning didn't seem to work and it was hard to sleep because of the heat. The room was clean but very small. The location is great and this would be the only reason to stay here.

Excellent Hotel

Posted 31-Jul-2014
We loved this hotel. Excellent location, right on the edge between Old Town and New Town Edinburgh. We opted for a room with a view, and the room was fantastic! We had a panoramic view with several windows. The room was very clean and modern, and modern isn't easy to find in that area. I don't know how the normal rooms compare, but we loved our view room!
