Great location, clean, quiet room. Close to train station, tour buses, restaurants and shopping.

Great location in New Town
Our room was tiny, and there was construction going on outside our windows. Oddly, there are 5 floors, but the elevator only goes to 4. Therefore you must schlep your bags up that floor. Just odd. One day the elevator was broken and we had to walk five floors to our room, after already covering 10 miles by foot that day. The restaurant was quite spectacular, with great service. The bar was sketchy on service. Food in the bar was delicious as well. I'll stay again, but will request a room on a lower floor.

Great location
The room was very nice other than the view, when we booked the hotel it said city view, our view was actually a roof, if we had been staying longer we would have asked to be moved. The hotel location was great though.

Good location, not so good hotel...
The location was superb, but since we had forgotten to write down the street number it took us quite some time to find the hotel. They should really update the signs... When checking in we had to carry our bags to the room which was almost as hard to find as the hotel. Up a few flights of stairs and with carpets everywhere, it was exhausting to carry the bags to the room. The room itself was ok.

Couldn't ask for a better location in Edinburgh. We were in room 203. Tall windows were perfect for a view of the Balmoral Hotel, the Castle and the old town. Just perfect. The room had been renovated and was very modern with a steam punk theme. Loved it.
