Highly recommend while in Edinburgh
I loved Stay Central. I loved it so much that I rebooked a couple nights later in the week. It has a really cool, young vibe that you don't find much in other hotels. The staff was super helpful as it was my first time in Edinburgh alone. They provided me with maps and even watched my bags while I tried to find the train station. I recommend buying the breakfast option, as the Three Sisters has a pretty good breakfast menu. My only complaint, if any, would be that since it is next door to a pub, the courtyard outside can get a little loud. It didn't bother me much, but it's worth mentioning.

Great hotel with young vibe and central location
Great location, fun hotel, young vibe. Pub on site with a very busy social scene. Staff was great with great customer service. Large shower with lots of hot water! Beds comfortable. Good wifi.Some reviews mention music from Pub a problem for sleep before 2 am. It wasn't for us, as due to the weather we kept the windows closed. If you are looking for a very quiet hotel this isn't it, But for a fun centrally located hotel, we highly recommend.

Clean Room, Good location, Good Food
Really nice hotel within walking distance of the city highlights. We only stayed 1 night but it was comfortable, clean and convenient. The in-room complimentary items were unexpected but very nice and the attached restaurant was very good. Close to Waverley station and High Street, we would recommend it as a good place to Stay. And don't forget to add you home location to the big map in the lobby. It was interesting to see how many locations were represented there.

We stayed in the height of the FringeFestival. It was a pretty wild scene and we were afraid we wouldn't be able to sleep. The room was warm when we arrived and they immediately provided a fan for the room. We were able to sleep well each night. Breakfast each morning was good and the front desk helped with getting a cab on our last day. Fun atmosphere and fun, helpful staff. Thank you Stay Central,
