Newest first
10.0 Excellent
Pros: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!
7.7 Good
Pros: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.
Cons: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.
5.7 Passable
Cons: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.
7.1 Good
Pros:Wifi didn't work on my iPhone, only my iPad.
Cons:There is demolition of a building right behind my room. They start early in the morning. It wasn't pleasant at all.
