Stayed in this hotel over Hogmanay, We were charged over £500 for two nights , yes i know Edinburgh hotels can be expensive around this time of year but that wasn't the problem. First the plus points .... Great location , Train station 2 mins away as well as a taxi rank. We checked into the main hotel which looked nice and clean and were delighted to be informed that we had been upgraded to a executive room free of charge ... result we thought .... We left the main reception and headed to our room ion the building two doors down. The entrance hall looked like it hadn't seen a coat of paint for years .... the door to our room had a gap that big you could have shoved your suitcase through without opening the door. On opening the reason was apparent , the lock mechanism which should be held on with four screws was being held by a single screw. The room itself was large with a small double and single bed, with pillows that were probably used as a torture system in the dark ages as they were that hard.... tea and coffee facilities and a small TV. the curtains did not seem to fit the windows , and the net curtains behind them were hanging off on both sides. the carpet had a big tear in it and the woodwork around the room was chipped and paint flaking off. ceiling was badly cracked also ...... the Bathroom was a different story all together. The tiles on the walls looked like the chuckle brothers had fitted them , Cracked tiles , Grout missing in many places. The shower base was on a raised plinth which had a 3 inch gap around it which anyone could easily trip up on. Only saving grace about our stay was that we spent hardly anytime in the room. Will definitely not be returning or recommending

We booked a double room because of the location (very handy for Haymarket station) and a 15 mins walk to Princes Street. And the price was good. Staff on arrival were friendly and gave a good first impression. The room was, well, it was ‘ok’. The pros: tea/coffee making facilities; TV worked (but a limited number of channels) Cons: there was a not-very-pleasing-odour coming from the bathroom some of the time; it was hit and miss whether the shower was hot or cold. But for £30 for a couple per night, we couldn’t expect the Ritz. Would we stay there again? Afraid not.

We stayed here for one night. we booked two rooms and they were nice, spacious and comfy. Very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. Small dining area. Wanted a coffee in the afternoon but receptionist was dealing with new arrivals so gave up waiting. They could probably do with someone extra to look after bar. That was only downside otherwise we enjoyed our stay. Ten minutes walk to the centre.

The location is great - right next to Haymarket tram stop and railway station - and the building is nice. Unfortunately the worn carpets and the hazardously inconsistent water temperature in the shower were big drawbacks. Having said that, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable so it was fine for our one-night stay.

We were two couples heading through to Edinburgh for a Xmas night out. We booked the Piries garden flat through 'itison'. What a lovely large flat with two huge bedrooms, sitting room with dining area, well fitted kitchen, large bathroom & a little walled garden for sole use of the flats occupants. The beds were comfy & spotless. The flat was cosy & warm. We were also given a breakfast hamper & complimentary wine & chocolate. The staff were friendly & helpful. It was a great stay & we regretted not booking for two nights. We will definitely be back!

'Booking Dot Com' diverted my wife and her aunt to Piries Hotel near The Haymarket Railway Station, in Edinburgh, when their original choice was found to be double booked. "A bad start's a guid ending", goes the old Scot's adage, so this blithe pairing set out on their "Beautiful" (name of the show they were in the capital to see) planned expedition, full of high expectations. The first room Piries offered was too hot for two ladies of a certain age just arrived, slightly flustered, by their trek from the shops; neither was the second room remotely up to their hopes of comfort and joy. Finally, after a fair bit of 'nice-ladies' good-natured fuss, they were directed to the self-contained flat, (still part of Piries empire, but separated from the hotel itself), which afforded them the kind of accomodation they sought. "Piries, Sans Apostophe" got there in the end and though a "bit annoying", said their guests, avoided the full wrath of this potentially warlike duo. The staff acquitted themselves with admirable and professional aplomb. Hence, the fourth 🌟 given star.

A comfortable bed in quite a small room. Unfortunately the radiator made noises all night making for a very disturbed night's sleep. In addition the drains in the en-suite smelled terribly and we had to keep the door closed the whole time. The most disappointing thing was that when we informed the staff and asked them to go to the room to experience the issues they made no attempt to do so. What was also disappointing was that my email to the head office of the hotel group received no reply. Not sure they were really bothered. Nearly £100 for bed and continental breakfast - I expected better

We loved our stay here. Friendly staff and the hugest room I've ever seen. Clean tidy and so close to everything you need. We didn't get to sample the breakfast but it smelt amazing. We would definitely recommend. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back

Visited this week for a two night break, no complaints whatsoever. We arrived early at 11.30 to ask if we could leave bags and check in later, as our room was ready we were able to check in right away. Our room was on first floor at the back, very comfortable and we had an excellent sleep. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice for a continental service. During our stay we found all staff to be friendly and most helpfully, if returning to Edinburgh we will definitely retun to this hotel.

I visited here recently for a couple of nights. The hotel is a “bit tired” and in need of some decoration. The bed was the softest I have ever slept in. You could feel the springs and you rolled into the middle of the bed. The hotel is in a good location near Haymarket station, although there isn’t any parking, but there are a couple of car parks about 10 mins walk away. I was meant to pay a supplement for being there at the weekend, but as the shower was only producing water that would’ve taken the skin off you and couldn’t be used, this was waived. That’s a plus.
