Great tourist hotel!

Staff was great, and the room was very clean and in good order. It is in a great neighborhood that is a short walk away from the royal mile and other touristy locations. I'll definitely be using this hotel when I go back. The restaurant was so-so. Breakfast, as with many hotels, was less than expected but a fair price.

Great Surprise

I loved it! The staff were great and friendly. The lounge was clean and comfortable. It was a great location and really inexpensive. The restaurant downstairs had amazing food and the men that run it are very nice to talk to. The only downside was that my room got a total of about three or four tv stations which was actually good because it kept me out and about in the city.

noisy

great location, easy walking distance to princes street, castle and waverly station. unfortunately room was a bit shabby, stained carpet. and most of all the night time noise of traffic, barely slept. as no double glazing or secondary glazing. if had a room at back it may not be as bad. hotel was tired and dated, though was expecting more as had read reviews that was been refurbished i saw no evidence of this. being a single room it was small and had no bath just a shower. but room wasnt expensive so perhaps shouldnt expect more.

Time-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Edinburgh, UK really does not have street signs on poles at corners like other towns. Get a good map and you will find the names of the streets edged in stone on the building. Each corner of the building might have a different street name or different place name. Most of the buildings are Georgian design, so don't reley on a place and then turn at that corner because alot of the buldings are similar in color or size
