          Breakfast service was more than I expected. Hotel staff was kind and helpful.

          My room was downstairs. And the hotel was being painted at that time, every morning I woke up with shouting workers and the hall smelled of smoke and paint.

          Its location counts defintely! If you want to stay in Edi., go for this hotel for sure. It takes only few mins to get to the centre, you don't need to spend money on buses to get you to the downtown; instead you can use saved money for a nice coffee drinks etc.:) I liked the stuff, were very kind. They even lent us an adapter for uk socket, there's a free internet access. Clean rooms. Beds very comfortable. Interior is going through a renovation, so in a short time, it will look even better. Great!!

          The hotel was clean,the room spacious& the staff very polite and helpful.

          The only quam/s i had were; the shower curtain that stuck to your body when having a shower due to being blown by the fan,maybe shower screens would be better.

          Huge room, and lovely breakfasts

          Currently doing work in the hotel, so not really anywhere to relax in it

        • Group of friends

          I loved the fact that it was like living in another era, because of the decoration of the hotel. and the most important, that it was 10 minutes walk from the center.

          It would be good to renovate some parts of it, like the bathroom.

        • Group of friends

          Breakfast was great, staff was so nice and the location really close to Princess Street

          Location, decent shower, pleasant staff.

          Dull basement room, very uncomfortable matress, room could do with general make over.

          The staff was very helpful - beyond what is expected. Breakfast was excellent. Room was very small but comfortable and overlooked a beautiful garden. I would go back to this quite small hotel.

          Situation. Convenient for many attractions, as well as the station.

          It was located close the centre of the city and I love the breakfast looking through the window to the park./ Thank you for your attention and sorry of my english./

          Yes, the water was not hot enough for me./

        • Single

          I liked that the hotel is centrally located but in the same time - on a quiet street, and the area is green and pretty. Unlike big chain hotel, this one has an authentic atmosphere, which also appealed to me. The room was comfortable, there is a beautiful garden, and the overall setting exceeded my expectations. Right in the city centre, I woke up everyday with only the sound of birds chirping. All of Edinburgh's main attractions are within walking distance from the hotel, but in the same time, one is away from the crowds and the noise. The staff was very polite and helpful. The price is reasonable.

          I would recommend they extend breakfast hours - it finishes at 9.30am, and when on holiday one may prefer to eat breakfast a bit later in the morning.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Location is very good, walking distance to train station and almost all the interesting place to visit in the city center. Quiet room, comfortable beds, good breakfast, very nice staff and very good service!

          Bath room facility is a bit simple but it is ok for short stay.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Large room and good size bathroom. Perfect breakfast. Quiet street. Ground floor room was very quiet.

          Spots on bedding. Tv didn't properly work. Told the staff, but it wasn't fixed. Door to bath swelled and stuck with humidity. Shower curtain didn't hold in water (floor got very wet).

        • Single
          6.6

          The staff were exceptional. The breakfast was very good and served efficiently.

          Decor in room a bit shabby but clean.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Being in walking distance from main features of central Edinburgh but out of the main traffic rush; good breakfast; rather eccentric but comfortable rooms

          The rooms were stuffy and the bedroom window didn't work, and it was a long way up very steep stairs; the tv blaring in the breakfast room
