4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Rather strangely, imo, there was very little "drawer space" and the "hanging space" left a lot to be desired too - the room seemed set up for an overnight stay rather than anything longer. The single-glazed windows didn't help (as the smoking zone was a floor below my window, plus the "night pedestrians" could be clearly heard). The room was very clean though and well maintained but the tv channels were limited (if needed). That being said it was obviously a very popular choice going by the number of customers and traffic moving through the hotel, so maybe I'm being over-picky. The food in the restaurant was very good. The hotel itself is centrally situated with easy access to everything you'd need in a visit to Edinburgh.

  • Liked: Cleanliness

I have stayed at this hotel before and was happy with my first stay. The area the hotel is located in is great. This last stay I was very unhappy with the room. The bed was as hard as a rock, there was serious mold in the shower grout and the shower door seal leaked water all over. After complaining they did fix the mold and shower leak issue. This should have been taken care of before guests had to ask for it to be done. I would rank the hotel high in location and very nice interior but they really need to keep on top of maintenance. Also is you need a soft bed don’t expect to find one here.
