Great Property!
Very nice property near the Royal Mile. Friendly staff, excellent service, good breakfast, nice amenities, and small but well appointed rooms. This is a much higher quality HI Express than we’ve seen in the past! The breakfast offered many items including fresh fruit - just great! If you have your window open after the pubs close on the weekend, you’re going to hear the loud folks heading home. But when you’re in the heart of the city, you probably can’t expect otherwise. All the staff was very helpful. Thank you for a nice stay!

Wouldn’t stay here again.
Breakfast was very poor, cold, not much choice, struggled to get a table & food was in a small room. Great location. Very disappointed asked for double bed, got 2 singles pushed together. Was told we had a quiet room, right next to the main door, they were joking obviously!!!!
