Nicest halls of residence I've ever stayed in.

Posted 19-Feb-2015
Very fast free wifi. Good shower. Good selection of tv channels. Nice bedding. Mattress a little lumpy. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. Hoovering questionable-piece of litter on floor when I arrived still there when I left 3 days later. Modern aesthetically pleasing room. Parking not close to entrance.

Student dorms disguised as a hotel!?

Posted 17-Feb-2015
Booked this on expedia secret hotels, and paid 135 pounds for 1 night ... I guess because this it was a Saturday night and Valentines day. Terrible experience overall. The rooms are cramped and the walls are paperthin. I could hear the television next door and it was only playing at a normal level. Between students coming home drunk and making a noise at 2am and fellow hotel users waking at 5am, we hardly slept a wink. Every door that closes, slams shut. I have travelled the world, living in hostels/hotels and can genuinely say this is an awful hotel. The staff seemed nice, but the building is not fit for purpose. Excellent hotel if your deaf.

1st year anniversary to Edinburgh

Posted 30-Dec-2014
Pros: Clean, cheap, close. Best breakfast ever. Lots to eat. All of it delicious
Cons: Drunk students can be a noisy nuisance
Location: It's right near the Commonwealth swimming pool, which is nice. Good local shops and cafes nearby
Very helpful staff. Excellent facilities. Great view of Arthur's seat. Handy distance to centre. Warm room and we made use of kettle a lot.

Well Worth Considering!

As an overnight stop after a business reception in Edinburgh, Masson House was pleasant enough. Having stayed at the Kenneth Mackenzie Apartments in previous years (also owned by the University of Edinburgh), I had a rough idea of the service standards but thought I'd try somewhere that offered these with a different architectural vibe. The views are certainly better - mainly of Arthur's Seat or the neighbouring Salisbury Green's gothic dleights - but, inside, things are pretty much as at Kenneth Mackenzie, even down to the wet-room shower and liquid soap nailed to the wall. I changed rooms after around four minutes having heard through the wall at 5 pm my neighbour snoring like a saw-mill on a go-slow. My new room was far nicer. High point was breakfast: a fine room, tastefully decorated, plenty of natural light and a wide choice of very tasty food, from continental meats and cheese to fruit to full death-by-cholesterol Scottish breakfast. I wish I'd allowed myself even more time to enjoy it. Another plus point is that buses pass by on the nearby road into the town centre on a regular basis, making getting around a doddle.

Good breakfast - decent rate. Room was clean - adequate. Good buy for the money.
