Smart little room close to major attractions

Posted 28-Dec-2016
The room is compact but comfortable, reception staff are excellent - very friendly and genuine welcome. There were a couple of minor points that let the room down a little - the floor didn't look entirely clean with a few crumbs etc scattered around the kitchen and the kettle's spout filter was broken. These were however very minor issues and elsewhere the cleanliness looked spot on. Overall, a good stay, and I would definitely consider staying again in the future if I was in the area.

Fantastic service at reception. We were able to keep room on longer the next morning. Our little boy had been poorly during the night and reception staff couldn't have been more helpful.

Perfect location!

Perfect location! I stayed here with my boyfriend for the weekend in December. The location is so close to city centre and I was walking distance to all the tourist attractions/bars/castle etc. The room was very clean and in good condition!

Some rooms are smaller than online pictures

Posted 26-Oct-2016 on Ebookers
Location: Good central location with easy access to Attractions, shops and restaurants. Supermarkets are a 2min walk
The apartment room we were given initially was very small and compact. Not like the pictures I'd seen online when booking. We also noticed a funny smell in the room. On inspection we found the kitchen bin had not been emptied and had probably been there quite a while with things now rotting. On contacting the reception staff about this issue, we were immediately moved to a bigger apartment further down the corridor. This room was more spacious than the first and had no funny smells!! Staff were really helpful in all matters, such as parking, local info, and baggage hold. We also managed to park our car for free for our 2 night stay in a car park which is a 5 min drive from the hotel. (Pollock Halls) It's best to enquire about this as all the staff were not aware of this added facility.

Very solid location for downtown Edinburgh.

Posted 10-Oct-2016
Pros: The receptionists were very helpful when we had questions. We appreciated having laundry facilities on site.
Cons: We had trouble finding the place. You need to go in a little driveway before you can see the entrance and the sign was hard to see.
Location: I loved climbing Arthur's Seat. We started near the parliament buildings. Next time we would chose the shorter route that starts close by.
The apartment had everything that we needed. We are big people and the bathroom is tiny and the apartment doesn't have any extra space but it worked very well for us and we were very comfortable staying there for five nights. We walked to the train station (about 15 minutes) and we walked to the castle and parliament buildings.

Nice to come home to!

Posted 07-Oct-2016 on Orbitz
Pros: I loved the location. Was so easy to get to and it was close to the "Mile". Also you could get a cab in less that 5 minutes!
Cons: The internet. I had a lot of issues staying on line.
Location: There is a great Tesco nearby! Went there often because of the great kitchen facilities.
Absolutely loved knowing after the end of the day, I had this nice spacious area to come back to. Overall the facility was great. Very clean. However, this is in a college dorm, so Saturday nights could get quite noisy. Also there was construction in the floors above us. They would work will into the wee hours of the night and you would hear them throw items in the dumpster and roll things across the floor. I am guessing after that is completed this would be a wonderful experience. Another thing that was a big hangup for me was that the internet was spotty. Would go in and out. I would try to FaceTime my family and it would constantly go out. But overall it was in a great location. Tesco was right around the corner!
