Great location for getting to the city center
The room was larger than I expected! The welcome basket of "Free" goodies was great, the beds were VERY comfortable! The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that they charged 1 pound per bag to store the bags after we checked out. I've had to pay for storage for a couple of hours.

Perfectly nice at the price point.
Perfectly nice, comfortable hotel at the price point. I happened to get a rather discounted price as I booked in after October 1. If I had paid the tourist season, full price, I would feel that it was a bit over priced. The staff were very gracious and helpful.

Excellent choice.
This was in the apartments across the street from the main hotel. Roomy and a bit fancier. A bit quieter as well. Easy walk to the city center, and lots of good food nearby, such as Twelve Trisngles for breakfast and Khushi’s (Indian), Al Fresco (Italian), and good pubs.

Solid three star near city center.
Overall, I really liked it. The room was even smaller than expected, but that was fine. The staff was excellent, and everything was clean and well stocked. More snacks and drinks than most hotels in its class. Two caveats: walls are a bit thin, and the meat at breakfast is cold cuts. Still, I was happy to be returning in a few days. Bonus points: Twelve Triangles is less than two blocks away, and some of Edinburgh’s best restaurants are nearby.
