Not good value for your money.
Friendly service from the people there. However the door to the window in my room nearly came off its hinges when I opens it and almost fell on me in my initial room and then the door didn’t lock to my room, luckily they gave me another room, however the window again was the same in the next room... Could not be bothered complaining again so put up with it. Looked like there was a blood stain in my room on the carpet also. Quilt cover was extremely thin and heating only gets turned on at night, not during the day. Extremely old decor. Would have been good to have a seating area out back since that space is being wasted. Would have been nice to have somewhere to go and relax outside.

Basic, but fine for one night stay.
The rooms were well equipped with coffee making facilities, hairdryer, tv. The bathroom was modern and nice, but could be cleaner. The double bed in the room was very uncomfortable. The mattress had no support and felt very old. Pillows were not great either. Luckily there was a single bed in the room too which was better, so slept in that. Was in a basement room so felt a bit dingy and no signal on my phone and didn’t want to pay £3 for Wi-fi. Overall, a bit dated, beds not the best, but was only there for one night, so did the job. Got a good deal on it, but wouldn’t have wanted to pay more.

Will try somewhere else next time
hen I got to the hotel it was in a pretty crumby area. I was expecting a homely welcome from the initial pictures instead I got aguy that couldnt speak 2 words to me or try to make conversation. I was taken to a basement room to check in and had to negotiate tables and chairs in there to sing my form. I was then told that if I wanted WiFi I had to pay £3 which I did, but the room I had was in the depths of the "hotel" and the WiFi sigal was so weak there was no point in paying for it, furthermore as I was in the basement the phone & 4G signal was none existent.

Good Leith!
Saw not hide nor hair of anyone after booking in - which is how I like it. Room & bed cleaned immaculately. WiFi was excellent.

The stay was fine, Finding the location as there is no sign was a little more tricky, Shame they do not offer breakfast, I would stay there again.

Quiet street. Handy for Leith shops and cafes. Only thing I missed was a bedside lamp for reading at night.

Poor 2.0
Horrific weekend experience
Horrific hotel - door didn't lock, bed was small and uncomfortable and management were unhelpful. We ended up going and paying to stay at another hotel at extra cost due to the low quality of this hotel. NOT RECOMMENDED

Nor awful but not good
Room was clean and tidy but very dated and creepy. We had the front room by the door and the windows were only tinted to around chest height, meaning we had to keep the curtains shut at all times so people outside couldn't see straight in to us. The lighting in the room was very dim and yellow. We knew it was further out from Edinburgh City centre but it was definitely further than we expected, and the '20' minute walk is more of a 40/45 min walk. The bed wasn't comfy and the duvet wasn't warm - there was also no option to not have someone make the bed (we don't like people being around our things and usually leave out a do not disturb sign when we visit other hotels). We had booked for 2 nights but ended up booking onto an earlier train home so we only had to stay 1 night.
