4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Amenities

Very well located but the room is way too hot to sleep at night. The employee at the reception told me to back for a fan latter on in the day and when I did, his colleague let me know that all fans were already out. Basically, they know they have an issue with rooms temperature (many other comments point this out) but they are not willing to purchase one fan per room.

Convenient, if a little hot!!

This is the perfect place to stay overnight in Edinburgh, very affordable. However it is very slightly off the beaten track and is a fair walk to the City Centre, including hills. The staff are always friendly and knowledgable, however, there is one problem with Brae House and that is that because it is a concrete construction, the upper floors do tend to get extremely hot during the summer days and nights, and it is very difficult to control the temperature of the building - being student accommodation there is no air conditioning! Fans are provided but even so it remains a major issue here.

Did the job. Shower didn’t drain and it wasn’t very clean. Bed was also really bad. Service was great though.

Never stay again

Worst ever for over $100 a night.. The place was like a maze to get around with no map available.light going out in the hallways, so felt on spooky unsside going to my car..kids at front desk, not helpful loo, no soap, no fans... the room had to be over 80F and window only opened a crack. The room was fairly clean but bed sheets smelt unclean..pillow case too small not covering pillow so the pillow half hung out, location was okay as this was one of the reasons why I choose this place but for the price it's a rip off. Would not stay again prefer pay a little more and have air-con in such warmer summer weather..
