Don't judge a book by its cover
Well, I was not impressed when I arrived. I was booked for 10 nites and couldn't fathom staying there that long. The hotel needs work, but most of it is cosmetic. After a while, however, the place grew on me. I did not like the location of the first room and was quickly accommodated with another. My room had fresh paint but was in need of new carpet. Breakfast was made to order. Stephan, the manager was always very helpful and accommodating. There were many nice places to eat and drink within walking distance and it was convenient to the EICC where my conference was being held. I could walk to most of the sites I wanted to see and I could always find my way back.

Sadly disappointing
Ok for sleeping only and waking up and running outside!! Awful awful awful awful If you want a cheap might just to sleep then yes it's ok. I booked this as pictures looked decent but my family were all upset with me and they went and found another hotel to stay in!! Owner looked drunk and the place stank. Entrance was horrific. Carpet looked like it was from the 80's and hadn't been cleaned. Really disappointing sadly. Bed and bathroom were clean.

Overnight in Edinburgh
My partner and I stayed for one night as a stopover for an early flight out of Edinburgh. The location so close to Haymarket station makes it ideal for travelers but also for those wishing to enjoy the West End. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room was clean and comfortable. The condition of the hotel was a little old but overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again in the future.
