    Very good location, just 5 minutes walk from the main station. Close to many of the favourite tourist attractions of Edinburgh. Room was quiet enough and I slept really well in a comfortable bed. Having an iron/ ironing board was also a useful item to find stored in the cupboard. Plenty of storage space for clothes. Staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. Didn't stay for breakfast or use the hotel's other facilities so cannot comment on those.

    I was allocated a disabled friendly room (which I didn't need), it wasn't an issue except for the walk in shower that no matter how carefully used, you would completely soak all the bathroom floor which wouldn't drain away. Puddles everywhere(!) Very annoying and unsafe, especially when you had to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. View out from my room was very poor.

    The room and bed were clean and very comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly. Great location to see the city

    Our room was on the first floor and the windows had frosting on them so we couldn't see out. It felt a little confining and like a box/cell. It would have been good if we could have opened a window.
