If you plan on walking or using the bus system to explore Edinburgh like I did, I highly recommend this hotel. Loved the location–less than ten minutes walking distance of Prince and Leith Streets, which makes finding restaurants or tram/bus stations easy. (I visited Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, and one of the venues was a couple buildings down the street.) I also enjoyed the interior design, especially in my bathroom (which you could tell had recently been renovated and included a rainfall shower).
Not recommended if you have difficulty walking or if you're traveling in a car. There is no lift in the building, and guests are expected to find their own parking.
Good value for money, staff hekpful, excellent location near Waverly and the centre
the hotel staff
the breakfast was too basic
Staff was friendly
Decoration and facilities are very poor, furniture not maintained properly. We had small mirror in the bathroom and no sockets for using hair dryer near to it. If you will decide to stay in this hotel don’t forget to bring toilet rolls with you – we didn’t have them in bathroom room.
Great location,friendly staff.
