          Great value for money”

          Staff very very helpful. Arrived 45 mins early & appreciated I had to wait, but 5 minutes later room was ready.....great service. Very spacious & clean room with as standard tea, coffee, fan etc. City centre, next door to a post office with many bars, restaurants, shops all within a few steps. Princess Street only 2 mins walk away. Railway station only 10 mins walk away. I paid £67 each night on a Saturday & Sunday for a single room but ended up with a family room......amazing value for money. Very impressive hotel from outside, inside and staff. Off the Charts.

          super stay”

          Amazing hotel in the center. Ideal location. Tram nearby, bus stops in all directions. A small supermarket nearby. Lots of cafes. I had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the courtyard. Noise was heard from the ventilation system of the adjacent building. I recommend using earplugs. The room had everything you needed. Also a small refrigerator. The bed is very comfortable. Cleaning will work very well. The only downside is very bad wi fi. But it didn't bother me because I use mobile internet. I highly recommend this hotel.

          My favourite place to stay in Edinburgh ”

          I love this place. There are no fancy facilities - don’t go expecting a bar or gym. But the rooms are a good size (if you book a single, it’s worth asking if they can upgrade you to a double bed, as they often have double or even triple rooms they can move you to). The room I was in yesterday had a lovely shower in it - nice and powerful. And the breakfast (which is in a bar/restaurant over the road) is much nicer than you get in most hotels, because it’s restaurant quality. Location couldn’t be more central, just off Princes Street.

          Posh feel at budget price”

          Amazing facilities for the price ( Marble entrance, plush carpets, clean room with cupboard containing ironing board, Iron and portable radiator) . My favourite drinks ( Hot chocolate, Camomile & Peppermint Twinnings tea ) . Cables for TV invisble , built in ethernet port , free wifi, fridge, comfortable bed, hansgrohe taps . only negative was that the shower thermostat was a little faulty ( water temperatue was yo-yoing )

          I love this hotel so much I ended up staying for few more days. The first thing I noticed when I entered the room was that it was really clean. Cleaning team has done a really good job! The staffs are friendly, especially the girl at the reception. She always greeted with a warm smile and were really polite.

          I had a good stay here. Price was good on agoda. Staff polite and helpful, room very clean and bed was comfortable. No breakfast/ fridge in room and no plugs near the bed for any charging were my only minor issues but I would definitely stay here again. Great location too.

          Spent 5 days in the hotel. In terms of value this was great. Location is excellent. Rooms are comfortable and clean (decor is not modern but at the price it's not important). This isa 4 star hotel and not 5 star. If you want 4 stars this is great value.

          Booked a single room for 4 nights, but was more like a double. Large bed, spacious. Had everything, tv, tea/coffee, iron, trouser press etc. Very clean, room serviced every day. Fantastic location next to loads of shops, restaurants and bars. Will stay again. Highly recommended.
