I booked this hotel for a short stay at Edinburgh. Booked this through a web site with attractive offer. But breakfast was not included. The room for 3 persons at 40 pounds!! On seeing some reviews I thought this hotel may be very tidy. But I found it opposite. I was allocated a room in second floor. We had to...

The room was nice, simple but cosy. The only issue is that it wasn't very warm, neither the water for my morning shower. But the staff was friendly and the room clean. I think for the money I paid it was a good room. Location not great but many shops around within 5-7 min walk. 4 buses takes you to...

Stayed here for two nights, and never going back again! The property was very old and everything in the room was substandard! It got very noisy because I could hear people going up /down the stairs! It's not very close to the city centre either, you're better off staying in a budget hotel!

The room we got for 4 people was very cheap, 50 pounds a night but, with the 8 pounds per person for breakfast, and 3 pounds for wifi a day it racked up pretty quick. There are a TON of places to stay close to here that were around the same price for better quality. Our room was right by...

Stayed just for 1 night. It's a simple place about 20mins out of the Edinburgh city. There was a mixup with my booking but the lady at check in was able to offer me one of the executive rooms at a discounted rate. It has a very old fashioned interior and no lift so if you don't like stairs look...

The hotel and especially the room are dark and tired. My room was dingy but it was clean. The bathroom was the saving grace - it was new, modern and the shower was great. They turn off the neat at night so it was cold. I asked at the front desk and the clerk had trouble speaking English ( most...

I stayed at Edinburgh house for one night after hogmanay. The location is fantastic (only 5-10 minutes walk to the tram), it was warm, cosy, clean and the staff were super helpful. We asked if we could upgrade to a double room, and they obliged free of charge. If you are looking for a short stay in Edinburgh I would...

When we checked in they gave us room 14, gorgeous, cosy, quiet but my daughter had problems climbing the spiral stairs that led to the second floor. I kindly asked if they could change it and the following day they put us in a comfortable room in the garden. The staff is very caring and efficient. The building is old...

At £70 for two nights in Edinburgh with free parking opposite, I ain't complaining (too much). We were in Room 3 which is large and clean. Bathroom is fine with hot powerful shower (which the drain struggles to cope with when on full). beds aren't too comfy but not a problem over only two nights. The heating does tend to...
