2.5 star hotel
This is listed as a 4 star hotel on the website but it is actually a 2 star hotel. -Very old building with not many updates. -No WiFi above the 3rd floor. -No elevators. -Manager doesn’t work at this site so nothing gets done. -Rug was filthy in the room -friendly staff -great location -very comfortable bed I stayed for 6 nights and could not get WiFi in my room on the top floor all week. The staff just kept saying there was nothing that could be done except reset the router. I spoke with 4 different front desk agents. Friendly but they were clearly not in a position to make change, because the manager works off site. Extremely frustrating because I was visiting from out of country and needed WiFi service.

The hotel internet connection in the rooms was totally abysmal I had to change rooms yet the Internet was absolutely horrible. On a couple of occasions I had to go to the reception to send emails.

This hotel is very hard to find and not well marked from the street. After checking in at the desk, we were led down multiple hallways, stairs (up and down), through many doors, into other, connected units, until we were led down to the basement to our room. Dark, dingy, sad looking. The bed was uncomfortable. Faucets in the bath were backwards (hot on the right, cold on the left). Pathetic wifi. Cannot recommend. Find someplace else to stay.

I loved this hotel
Fabulous romantic hotel in a quiet residential neighborhood close to Waverly Station and Royal Mile. The ceilings in our top floor room were beautiful. Gorgeous spiral staircases. Great room service. It was like being in a Victorian novel
