August Edinburgh
Great dining hall! The earlier the better to avoid the crowds. It was a lot of money to stay in a dorm, but we didn't realize that the Fringe Festival was going on and that was the reason for high prices. Had a nice modern feel to it. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Really cool place. I like that the university turns their halls into a hotel during the summer. Reminded me of my college days in the dorm.

Now this is a dorm room but a very spacious dorm with a shower. The staff was great, they offered breakfast every morning and a great breakfast at that. It is a bit far from some things but the bus comes by there and it is easy to use.

Luck of the draw...
I stayed with a friend in separate rooms during the Jazz Fest. Our rooms varied greatly in view, temperature, and noise. We were in Baird House. One room 103 faced Arthur's Seat and was cooler. 101 was above the main door and the smoking area so I heard clacking of the door and smelled smoke all day/night. I was moved to 118 and staff was super helpful. That was above the boiler room and roasting temp wise. Be prepared for large groups of student, bring earplugs and a bucket of patience. Hike Arthur's seat and enjoy the huge breakfast!
