    It was a last minute booking I got a great rate and was definitely worth it. I had a great view of the main street from my room. Beds were very comfortable, the rooms were very clean , neat and modern. Would definitely come back.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The location is amazing. It’s right on the North Bridge and Royal Mile. What was terrible is that the windows in the area where my room was 324 were not at all sound proofed. It was truly as if i were on the street. Every car, bus, truck that passed, every person speaking could be heard. There was a bag piper that played on the street until 1 pm and if he were good i would not have minded but he was terrible and I literally got zero sleep. I could not change rooms because the hotel was fully booked. The servers in the restaurant were pretty terrible but the food was decent. I would not stay here again as the room was the most awful I think I’ve ever stayed in.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    All was good except thr really very cheap behavior of "demanding" £25 for the extra 1 hour I have "REQUESTED" due to late flight hour. Lady at the reception desk acted as if I have asked for the world. I am a person that travels and have never come across such attitude. I made an effort and went downstairs to talk to the MOD about the issue but, she was another statue of attitude. This is such cheap behavior that has nothing to do with the expected "courtesy" towards the customer. I must say, however, the lady during our check-in was extremely receptive and accomodating.
