    It is quit a nice hotel, walking distance from city centre. I would stay there again.

    The bathroom were quit old, when other quests were taking shower upstairs, water was coming into our bathroom through ceiling. The shower cover was a bit moldy.

    The hotel was located near centrum, but in a very quiet neighbourhood. Inside the building was very beautiful and interesting. It was "simple" and easy to use. Service was good and fast. I'm very satisfied with the choise.

    Nice room,The water was nice and hot,the staff were very pleasant and helpful. ie:offering to carry bags,get taxis,etc.

    it would have been helpful to know there wasn't a lift as I brought my 73 year old mother and we were allocated a room on the top floor.

    ... it is a very sweet and cosy hotel in a very central location, but also very quiet; most things worked very well and the staff was very hospitable. However the breakfast was absolutely disastrous!!! Everything was already packed in small wrapped peaces like for a british lunch box! Not fresh, not freshly cooked, ... in the main only preserved food. : (( Late night, I came back to Edinburgh from a long flight and in the morning I suffered from this side effect.

    Arrived at 10.40 for biz meet next morning. room 9. shower not good. Room comfortable, dusty behind bedside table though. Coffee could have been stronger at B.fast! However, I booked on price and it was very reasonable.

    Not sure I would stay again but it fulfilled on price and location for me. Walking distance from airport bus, fairly late, to avoid expensive taxi ride. sorry didn't check other reviews on website. was booking on price!

    Hotel quality was much better than I hoped, I had a great time in the hotel.

    I've been told there was internet connection in the hotel rooms, but unfortunately there were not. That was the worst thing about hotel, you gotta go to reception for internet connetion.

    The room was large and you could regulate the heating yourself. The continental breakfast has a good sortiment and you made your own toast so you got it fresh. The stafff were helpful and friendly. 10 min walk to Princes St and close to Haymarket train station. In a nice residential area and not much noisy taffic.

    The curtains were dusty, specially the pelmet. The shower curtain and shower hose were mouldy.

    The double room is big and nice. Just 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Very quiet place. Good breakfast.

    The double room on the ground floor is a bit cold despite the heater was turned on full power. The bathroom floor was not very clean.

    We stayed one night in room no 10. I woke up 5 o'clock in the morning because of the reception bell. It was too loud...

    Great location for Haymarket train station, bars and restaurants. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment. Comfortable, clean room.

    Was advised of car parking close by. My friend came by car, but ended up with 2 parking tickets as car park too far away to use.
