Edinburgh City Hotel, Edinburgh
Good but pricey.
Good location. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. We found the hotel was pricey (especially when you convert it to CDN $457.00) for 2 nights.

Very cheeply made.
Front desk staff a bit rude and condescending. All of the items in the room seem to have been purchased at the lowest price possible. Rooms are very loud. If the pull out sofa is needed, kids will have problems getting comfortable.

Very Good8.0
A nice hotel in a great location, very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was extremely small, felt like an attic. I was traveling with a friend and our room was very cramped for two people.

Only issue is that I had booked a queen bed for my friend and two twin beds were pushed together so he essentially just had to sleep on a twin (as the center of bed was not comfortable ). Other than that , service was great. Staff was nice. Locations perfect in old town
