Beautiful Surroundings

The Salisbury Green Hotel is located on the University of Edinburgh's campus (which I didn't realize, prior to going there). The building is very beautiful because it is a historical building, surrounded by trees, flowers, grass, squirrels. There's a great pub across the street w/ lovely staff, food, and drinks. My major problem was that I could NEVER access the Free WI-FI from my room, or the building I stayed in; I had to go to the reception area, in another building to access it. Staff at reception acknowledged that it was a problem, but never offered to fix the problem. They kindly let me stay in my room after the checkout time, as I had a late train. It is not in the city center of Edinburgh, but the castle is just a 20 minute walk & there are a lot of restaurants fairly closeby.

Perfect Edinburgh Choice

The hotel was wonderfully located just minutes from Arthur's Seat and twenty minutes from the city center. The room and bathroom were a great size, and the included breakfast was fulfilling. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and I would stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Think about traffic when taking a cab back to the train station (if this applies). While it only took 5 minutes to get there, it took 20 to get back to the station via cab.

Very Happy Guests

Really lovely place to stay. Has everything you need, clean and comfortable, spacious room. Friendly staff, lovely breakfast made to order. Close enough to walk to the city center, otherwise taxis are parked up by reception. Even managed to get an Iphone back that we had left in the room after our stay. Would definitely recommend this place - Great value! :)
