Halcyon Hotel, Edinburgh
The room was small and not well furnished but clean. The breakfast was excellent but really excessive in price for the quality of the room.

Halcyon Hotel, Edinburgh
It's just ok.
The hotel is located conveniently near the tube station and super close to the Natural History Museum. The staff was a little cold when we were checking in. The room is very small, but sufficient for the price and a short stay. It is clean. The bathroom has been recently remodeled so that's nice. But the wifi is terrible and even worse you can hear everything through the walls. You can hear their tv and even when they are speaking at a normal volume. We were woken at 2:30am when our neighbors next door were coming home. Very frustrating. I've stayed in nicer places, but it's definitely not the worst either.

Good choice : reasonable location
Great location. Quiet and backing onto park. Reasonable walking distance to major attractions. Room had some quirks but overall fine.

Nice stay
Helpful staff, even made me a breakfast tray as I had a tour leaving when breakfast opened. No issues. Top floor double room for solo stay. Computer access would have been nice.

Nice stay for a great price
Really sweet b& b in a great location for a good price. Shared bath, no TV but walking distance to shops, restaurants & the castle. Excellent breakfast included.
