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!!!!

Modern hotel in a quiet location
Really enjoyed my stay for six nights. Another reviewer said it best; this hotel is near everything without being right in the middle of it. It is one block from the Royal Mile in a quiet location next to a church. The hotel is not lavish, but quite new with modern bathroom and heating. Breakfast was good, but I wish the selections varied - it was the same thing every day. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location
The hotel is clean, modest but comfortable. The breakfast is a nice bonus and the location is fabulous for touring the city and for pubs/restaurants.

In Old Town, interior new and comforatble
The hotel is wonderfully located in the middle of the Old Town. Despite being very modern inside, the limestone outside actually blends well with the older buildings and ambiance. Easy walk to Royal Mile. The front desk gave us great tips for places to eat. Very helpful staff. Room clean and spacious for being in middle of European city. Clean and good condition. Very good value. Breakfast satisfying.
