Amazing Place!”

The hotel is located at the edge of and just behind the shopping district. This made it very accessibly, considering that Edinburgh is a pretty compact city as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful, offering great advice with a constant smile! The rooms were very clean and the size was just about perfect! Noise from the streets wasn’t a since the hotel was located away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.

During our first night, there's no hot water from taps, but shower works. We came back a few days later, and everything works fine in another room. The staff said they would've been happy to help us switch the room if we had reported the issue on the first night. Other than that, our stay in The Place was exceptional. We definitely will book a room here next time we visit Edinburgh.

A clean and stylish hotel within walking distance of everything we had planned in Edinburgh. We stayed downstairs and although there were no windows a remote control Velux provided both light/dark and ventilation as required. There was a good selection for breakfast and the cooked breakfast was okay. Overall I thought the hotel provided excellent value for money when compared to other places we’ve stayed in Edinburgh.

Great location ”

Had a good stay whilst visiting Edinburgh for the Rugby. Rooms small but adequate as not in them very much! Staff helpful and a shout out to Alex in the bar 👍 Only downside are the rooms on the top floors are so far up that it’s a long way and they have no lifts. Struggle for elderly or disabled or those unfit . So taking any large baggage is a big task. Breakfast is self serve with small choice but a lovely made to order full breakfast and other hot choices is available also. Great location for the centre and lots of good restaurants and bars on the doorstep so to speak.

One night stay in a very small single room, perfect for my needs. Bed a bit too short for men(6"1") but comfortable. Room was spotlessly clean. Staff friendly. Cooked Bbreakfast was just what this traveller needed. Placed on York Place, a short walk from Princes St and Waverley Ant, trams etc. Not sure I'd want to spend a week there but perfect for a short stay. Price was under £70 so good value too.

Great Location”

We spent one night here and were very pleased with the location. Just 8 minutes walk from the station and very close to the centre. We ate around the corner at an 'edgy' Mexican restaurant on Broughton Street. We were disappointed with being on the lower ground floor as we had no view and the room felt stuffy. On opening the skylight in the morning we attracted an extremely noisy, huge seagull who wanted to share the room with us. If we were staying longer I would have asked to change rooms.
