A wonderful site for a mini break on Princes St.

Posted 20-May-2015
Pros: Friendly and helpfulness. Comfortable. Good location
Cons: Some of the deco could be up dated and improved. A little bit more info about what's happening i.e shows, concerts etc.
Location: Fantastic location with nearby trains, buses, tour buses and taxi's. Near the shops .
*I went away for a mini break with my elderly mum and we both thoroughly our stay. The hotel was near the railway station, buses, taxi's and the tour buses. I had been concerned about the stairs up to the reception but by ringing the assistance bell at the bottom of the stairs staff came down to help with luggage and I could help mum up the stairs.The room even though it was on one of the lower floors and a room a the side although near the front had a lovely view of the main street. The lift was easily accessable. A little noisy from the traffic at first but we soon got used to it and slept really well the beds very amazingly comfortable. The staff were all very helpful, polite and friendly particularly with mum being elderly. The food was lovely in the restaurant, on the last night we tried the bar meals which we also enjoyed.The bar was always busier the restaurant. It was also a hotel with a history.

Bra läge nära centrum.

Posted 19-May-2015
Pros: Läget. Nära till centrum och flygbussarna.
Cons: Hela hotellet behöver fräschas upp. Otäta fönster med drag som följd. (nr 510). Färgen i taket i matsalen flagnar. Frukosten.
Location: Ypperligt läge. Mycket shopping. Nära till alla sevärdheter.
Något slitet hotell. Behöver en uppfräschning. Torftig frukost.

kurz und laut

Posted 17-May-2015
Pros: das Ambiente
Cons: ruhigere Zimmer wenn gebucht
Location: zentral
allein spät für 1 Nacht, gebucht wurde ein Zimmer mit Blick auf die Stadt und Burg, bekommen habe ich ein kleines Zimmer zur Baustelle mit Küchenabsauganlage die Nacht durch, da macht der schottische Flair des Hauses auch nichts mehr gut

Very difficult if you are driving as there is not even a place to pull up and drop off your bags. Luckily for us 2 staff members came out and met us in an alley and helped with the bags.Then we had to park a ten minute walk away in the garage where the hotel had an arrangement.

Lovely Central Hotel

Posted 14-May-2015
Pros: The hotel is historic hotel and is very beautiful and and seems to have been renovated recently ...beautiful!
Location: The location of the hotel is central to everything. It is well within walking distance to the castle and the surrounding tourist attractions.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities was very modern and updated on the inside. I had a beautiful view of the castles from my window . The space in the room was quite adequate and the bathroom is beautiful and even had a towel warmer.

Excellent location

Posted 11-May-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Friendly helpful front desk staff would be nice
Booking a standard room does not necessarily mean a window. The room we booked had a blocked out window that had no natural light and the front desk staff told us nothing is guaranteed

Conveniently placed city hotel.

Posted 08-May-2015
Pros: Well placed for central Edinburgh. Quiet.
Location: Already in the main shopping area. A reasonable walk to the old town. So shops, restaurants, castle , museums all within walking distance.
The hotel allowed us to book in 2 hours early as the weather was terrible. The room was smallish but bright and clean. The staff were efficient. The hotel was peaceful and quiet.
