Booked a triple room for 4D3N (the exact room in the picture). Was happy with the huge room, but overall the conditions of the room was mediocre as they are rather dated. The staff was okay, asked whether we need anything more when we checked in. Location is good, very near to a bus stop, or if you're feeling healthy, it's approx. 40 minutes away from Royal Mile. During morning 'rush hour', there might not be enough hot water, and you can hear the screams of the pump trying to pump you more water.
Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2019
