  • 10.0Exceptional

    This was great place to stay in Edinburgh. The location is right between Old Town and New Town. It is only 2 blocks from the train station and 3 blocks from the airport tram. The rooms are nice and spacious. We stayed 8 days, so we wanted something that we could unpack and feel we had room. The bathroom is luxurious with a tub and shower. There is a refrigerator, pot to heat water for coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Also a safe if you need to lock stuff up while you are away. There is a restaurant and bar on premises along with a spa, hot tub, pool an sauna. Great helpful staff. I would definitely stay there again.
