Never go to this hotel!

Reviewed 3 december, 2021

Horrible small rooms and small beds. The sofa bed is very uncomfortable. Breakfast is not good quality, not many options as well (no cheese or ham for example), no service in the breakfast room (dirty) either. Chaos! The communication of the hotel is really bad too. They didn’t bother to help us with our COVID test and how to travel home safely when we asked for help prior to our trip. And on top of all that: at checkout they calculated a total different price than where I booked for. They rated us more than €2000 (>£1800) for 3 night for 2 rooms. This is an outrageous price for this type of hotel. For that money we could have stayed at a 5* hotel. Never go to this hotel!!!

Perfect Location for Old Town

Reviewed 24 november, 2021

Perfect location as only a 5 min walk from the Royal Mile. Room we had on top floor (4th floor) was clean, spacious and quiet . Buffet breakfast was basic but had a selection of cereals, pastries and cooked breakfast and self service coffee machine. Gluten Free food labelling was outstanding. All staff were friendly and polite. Highly recommended and wouldn’t hesitate staying here again.

Improve the level of lighting

Reviewed 7 november, 2021

The staff were very friendly and nice. The rooms were clean but the level of lighting was very poor in the bedroom. Also there were no plug sockets beside the bed. The breakfast was good. Large selection. The hotel is located in the city and you can walk into town.

Basic hotel

Reviewed 31 october, 2021

Stayed for one night. Was initially given a gloomy room on the ground floor with a view of a brick wall. Got moved to a better room on a higher floor though after I complained. Better view with more natural light, but the actual lighting in the rooms is very poor once it gets dark. Not sure why there was no bright light apart from in the bathroom. Room and bathroom were spotless though. TV however was strangely positioned for a hotel room ( see photo). There was also no bedside electric socket, another anomaly. Bathrooms have generous walk in showers with instant hot water with simple controls. Breakfast buffet is complimentary for all guests, but is sparsely staffed with no one checking diners in. It is served in a very cramped basement room. Sausages not very nice and everything very basic. Location wise it is one block from the Royal Mile, very near the nightlife of Cowgate on which the hotel is actually situated. No outside noise in the room though.. Don't think I'll stay here again.
