    To be honest the only thing that we like about this hotel was the location.

    The hotel I think for the money is not worth it, the thermostat in the shower was faulty and you had to keep checking it so that you didn't get burnt. the room was very small for two people, no remote control for the television. The hotel said it had satelite but we only had channels 1-5. Wish we had paid a bit more and stayed else where.

    Basic but pleasant hotel in perfect location

    Handy for the castle.

    The hotel is next to and above the Irish bar, which has live music on most nights, sometimes to 1.00am. It's very noisy and not suitable for families with children. Breakfast is taken in the bar, which smells of drink from the previous evening. With VAT and breakfast, a room rate of 84 pounds is way over the top for the standard received.

    Tv did not work. Very overpriced have stayed at much better in Edinburgh for less. Budget for hen and stag do's really. Local area is half tacky and full or urine and vomit. One of the few places left to book as had to go to Edinburgh on short notice. Would not go near the place again.

    The location was close to Castle/Royal Mile/Prince's street.

    The girl on the reception didn't even get up out of her seat on our arrival. She was glued to her computer! The place was shabby and unloved. The entrance was dirty and uninviting. A homeless person sat out on the entrance all the time we were there asking for our money. The whole place could do with some love and attention. It is very, very noisy at night!!!

    The Grassmarket area was where I needed to be in Edinburgh. It was a 2 star hotel and I knew that in advance. It served my purpose well for the two days I spent there. Grassmarket area is also a very historic part of the city and the hotel was right there amonsgt the history.

    I have no complaints about the hotel.

    Room very shabby , was asked to pay on arrival felt like criminal. Hotel entrance dirty , carpets worn and torn throughout

  • Older travelers

    Location is good, close to High Street and the Castle.

    Absurd price for what the hotel offers. Hallways and rooms are dark, dirty, smelly and old. Carpet floor is dirty and teared by use. Stay away from this hotel unless, like us, you had no other choice. The worst cost/benefit in whole Scotland. No breakfast included. Keep off ! Your health is in danger in this slum, I mean hotel.

    Central location, good choice of pubs / restaurants nearby

    TV channels were very limited

    Conveniently located, value for money, clean, en suite facilities. Tea and biscuits very welcome. Plenty of clean towels.

    Room 312: overstocked with beds so difficult to get to phone and window curtain.(revise layout?) Bathroom light switch difficult to find (put a notice and arrow on wall?) No soap tablet in bathroom (sachet inconvenient and unsuitable for several normal hand and face washes) also very poor lighting in corridor by room making it extremely difficult to see keyhole and determine which way up the key should be entered.

    the hotel was very functional, i was staying one night only and very tired after a long journey. i needed a bed.
