Perfect Stay for an affordable price!

Posted 20-Jan-2017
Pros: Staff and food.
Location: Walkable distance from Waverley station.
This is one of the best Hotels I have ever stayed abroad. The room and facilities were up to the mark. I had a really comfortable stay for a night. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was tasty and delicious. I'd recommend this to anyone.

A wonderful experience at the Ben Doran

Posted 24-Dec-2016
Pros: Comfortable bed, cosy armchairs in room, festive music at Christmas and great breakfasts.
Location: The hotel is located 10 minutes from Newington which has lots of shops and places to eat. Also, there is a bus stop opposite that takes you into town,
We stayed in December, and the hotel was simply delightful. We have a deluxe room which comes with an ensuite shower room but in fact we made use of the shared bathroom next door which has a huge bath tub with very hot water. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. There is no flat-packed furniture, and everything suits the style of a Victorian townhouse. The bed had mattress comforters that made it very comfortable. I suffer from a bad back so it was really wonderful to find a hotel with a comfortable bed. Breakfasts are great. There is a nice cooked buffet but you can request extras such as porridge with cinnamon and honey for no extra cost. Staff were very friendly and always has a nice greeting for us. As it was Christmas, they had decorated the hotel for the season with a large Christmas tree in the entrance hall and another in the dining room. In the mornings, Christmas music was played over breakfast - a nice touch.

dont stay here

Posted 24-Dec-2016
Pros: nothing
Cons: new employees, new furniture,
Location: horrible location and costs too much to get to the city center
Dont ever make the mistake of writing your review before you leave the hotel. I left my review of how unhappy I was with the hotel, and they came banging on my room door at 9 m giving me the interrogation of why I left a review and was unhappy, and the whole rest of the week, they scolded and treated me like the plague. Its far from the city center, and the employees that work there are rude, and very unprofessional.

Trato muy bueno, instalaciones algo mejorables

Posted 12-Oct-2016
Pros: Desayuno, trato del personal, conexión con el centro de la ciudad mediante múltiples líneas de autobús, habitación y baño limpios, cama grande
Cons: Conexión wi-fi
Location: Algo alejada del centro pero bien conectada. Algunos bares, restaurantes y sitios de comida para llevar a menos de 10 minutos andando.
Está algo alejada del centro, pero muy bien conectada por varias líneas de autobús. Cada pocos minutos pasa alguno que te deja en el centro en 15 minutos, y lo mismo para volver. El trato del personal es muy bueno, amable y atento. La habitación estaba bastante bien, pero algo ruidosa por el tráfico de la calle. El suelo enmoquetado debe ser de madera por debajo y crujía bastante. Puede ser algo molesto con los huéspedes de habitaciones contiguas. El baño compartido estaba bastante bien, limpio y con una bañera-ducha espaciosa. La presión del agua justita, pero podías regularla de temperatura tan fría o caliente como quisieras. No tuve problemas en usarlo cada vez que quise y ducharme sin esperar o hacer esperar a los demás huéspedes. El desayuno variado y abundante, y a un horaio (de 8 a 9) que considero adecuado. El wi-fi probablemente lo peor, buena señal pero problemas de conexión cada dos por tres (estás conectado al wi-fi pero no tienes internet). Tenía que trabajar con el portátil y me costó mucho, tuve que desconectar y conectar manualmente una y otra vez para restablecer la conexión. Pregunté si podía sentarme a trabajar en otra sala y me dejaron utilizar el salón de desayunos, me despejaron una mesa y allí pude trabajar con menos problemas, pero no iba del todo bien. Con la llave de la habitación abres también la puerta de la casa, así que eres libre de entrar y salir a tu antojo.

Convenient and good value.

A great base to explore Edinburgh, right on a bus stop and walking distance to cafes, bars and a theatre. Comfortable and an excellent breakfast.

Great location in characterful B & B

Posted 24-Sep-2016
We stayed for 4 nights and overall a pleasant stay. A clean and comfortable room and good selection of buffet breakfast. Bus stops nearby and frequently so perfect for easy access to Edinburgh centre.
