Cute and quirky little place
Very quirky entrance and you go through the restaurant and bar to get to the hotel rooms, which felt a little strange but super friendly staff. Corridors and stairwells felt a bit too dark and smelt a bit damp but room was nicely equipped and clean enough. Floor was very uneven and creaky and upstairs above us was very loud, you could hear every footstep. We were room 7. Breakfast was really nice and overall we would recommend as the price was very good and location was only 15 mins walk to the main streets and Waverley train station.

A gem of a place
Used to stay here when it was Rick’s, (that dates me). It was a good place then but it is an even better place now. The formerly loud bar on the ground floor now has a well appointed, quite chic, bar and restaurant and the restaurant menu is first class. Had couple breakfasts and a dinner during my stay and all were excellent. Room was very comfortable, had such a good nights sleep. Staff were all very friendly which is always a bonus. Location-wise, difficult to beat Rabble on this, one minute from George Street, three from Princes Street. I’ll be back!

Wonderful location for first time visitors. Staff is so lovely and check in and out fast. Very convenient to have the restaurant and bar downstairs! Tip - avoid first floor by cleaner closet or you’ll hear the door frequently in the early morning.
