    Excellent Location, Breakfast, and Price!

    Included breakfast was excellent with free hot beverage service too. The location cannot be beat, in the center of everything. Easy to rent a car, walk the royal mile, shop, eat, and see all the sights Edinburgh has to offer!

    Location, location, location. Within walking distance (<1 mile) of every place I needed to be or wanted to see on a mostly-business trip. Nice views from my 4th floor window facing Prince St. Bathroom was thoroughly up-to-date and very clean.

    Mattress was soft and showing some age. Some street noise--a tradeoff for the view, and not intrusive with the window and curtains closed after 10 pm.

    Website to be elaborated

    Location

    The merchant's website is not elaborative if you open a mobile version. It didnt show to book for a child. I was fooled by the same as had to pay extra for my child. For some reason, they charged me the whole amount for bfast inclusive, but bfast deal wasn't showing. I travelled from India and had the worst experience as had to check out early.

    Good Location. Wifi was spotty

    Wifi didn't work on my iPhone, only my iPad.

    There is demolition of a building right behind my room. They start early in the morning. It wasn't pleasant at all.
