I reserved ensuite, the the bath was not in the room. Otherwise it was fine, but wandering down the hall for a shower was not convenient.

Nice hotel. Beware of stairs.
Stairs. Good location within walking distance on most central Edinburgh sights. Nicely appointed room. Convenient parking in back of the hotel. Stairs. My room was on the second floor. That meant carrying our bags up 50 stairs. From the room to the parking level it was 88 stairs. I counted them several times. Although a nice hotel I would not recommend to those who have issues with stairs. I suspect a lot of hotels in the area have the same issue.

Poor 2.0
The only good thing was the location. It was dated, hot, no fan available, windows would not open properly, and when you were able tp open one, it was loud. The hotel was extremely OVER PRICED.
