"We love staying at the Mode Edinburgh. Fantastic location in New Town - Quiet yet very near all the sights, restaurants and shopping. The hotel facilities are tip-top and the room is immaculate. Lots of nice touches in the room that make it feel like home. The staff were very helpful and friendly. After 3 days in the Highlands, when we came back to Mode Edinburgh again, it was like coming home. Of all the hotels we stayed in during our holiday in UK, Mode Edinburgh is the best!"

"This is definitely the best hostel that I have ever stay! Staff are amazing and very friendly, breakfast is simple but I can feel lots of love in it as the staff prepared it every morning. The place is tidy which I really appreciate it, the hostel is located in New Town and it took around 5 mins walk to Scott Monument so it is very convenient to go almost every main attractions in Edinburgh. Just want to thank all of the staff that gave me a wonderful trip in Edinburgh, I would like to stay in here again!"

"The staff were exceptionally helpful; we had arrived early that morning, and they were extremely accommodating in holding our luggage, getting the room ready ahead of time, and making us comfortable in the interim. The room itself was very comfortable; I found the decor and lighting fixtures unconventional, but not unpleasantly so. Additionally, they offered complimentary wifi for guests, which had been unheard of in our travels in the UK up to that point (and this was 5 hotels into our trip). I can provide only two slight negatives. The first is not actually the hotel's fault; the street in front of the hotel is currently undergoing major construction and is therefore closed...so getting to the hotel involves a bit of a walk from the nearest taxi drop point (which is around the corner, around half a block or so). This is not a slight against them; however, if you're in a wheelchair, it could represent a problem. Which brings me to the second (related) item: the rooms are accessible solely via staircase, which could prove prohibitive to those with physical handicaps. Overall, we had a great experience here, and I would strongly recommend this hotel."

"the room is perfect just for me as if its a couple the room would be a little small for 2. the location is just amazing, 15 minutes slow walk all the way to Edinburgh Castle. The location alone is worth the money, many restaurant nearby and lots of shopping as well while there is a tesco with just less than 2 minutes walk away to get water etc. Would recommend it!"

"Good points: • location - couldn’t be any better. 2 mins walk from train station. As central as could be and only short walk to George Street, Royal Mile and Grassmarket. • staff - couldn’t fault them. Very helpful, polite and attentive. • room - I booked a double but ended up with a junior suite. Not sure if that’s normal, however it was spot on. Huge room on 5th floor with plenty space. Bad points • dated hotel - could do with a money spent on it. Very old and tired. • Noise - incredibly noisy where we were. Not so much during the night, but first thing in the morning. Sounded like 100’s of empty beer bottles being collected and poured into bins constantly. Very annoying and very loud! • Breakfast - not good. Although we booked our room with breakfast, we ended up having ours at The Huxley on 2nd day (end of Princes St), 100x better. Would I stay here again, probably, just for it’s location. However I’d save myself the money and get a room without breakfast. "
