    Excellent weekend stay

    Would definitely stay here again. Great value for money especially being in the location it is in. You can walk to most places in central Edinburgh from the hotel. The bathroom was small but modern and clean. It was a bit hot in the room but at least you could open the window to let some cold air in.

    Style on a budget! Why stay at a faceless, bland Travelodge or Premier Inn when you can stay in central Edinburgh in a stylish hotel with excellent customer service - will return for sure!

  • 10.0Exceptional

    Hotel is amazing, set in the heart of the old town it is the perfect location for a quick city break! All tourist attractions in walking distance, location couldn't be better!! Staff are very friendly and helpful, room was clean and bed comfortable! Unfortunately what let it down for us was the heat on the room was unbearable, thermostat appeared to be out of order. No telephone in the room to call reception, it made being in the room ridiculously uncomfortable. Constructive criticism: Kettle was broken and shampoo dispenser empty upon arrival and not filled. Apart from these issues I still would 100% stay at this hotel again,however, would double check the thermostat upon arrival. Hotel is so convenient and friendly I would see no other reason not to go back!!

    Excellent location and value for money

    - Supern location, including very convenient for Waverley station - Smart, clean and comfortable - Staff friendly and obliging - The pictures make it look dark and claustrophobic; it's not! - Slightly inconvenient that there are no phones in the roomsand the TV/radio signal was poor - Bedside ledges are inconveniently placed

    Great location. Comfortable clean and friendly

    The hotel is in the best location off all Edinburgh. Staff were very helpful & friendly. The bar and lounge was really modern , warm and comfortable with an incredible view. The hotel room however is very basic but absolutely fine for us as we spent very little time in the room. I would recommend this place.
