Great short stay! Clean and friendly
Clean rooms, really friendly staff and great location. I would definitely stay here again. Booked as I was driving to Fife the next day so just wanted one night in Edinburgh and location was fab. I was a bit questionable when I booked it as it was so cheap but can’t fault the place! A bit noisy but to be expected when staying so central
