    Do not bother and book elsewhere.
    Property is clean but has wrong information, front desk is ok and friendly. Rooms prepaid with breakfast included and hotel did not honor. Manager Len completely ignored paperwork and paper slips given with breakfast coupon by receptionist and refused to honor prepaid inclusions.

    A wonderful view over Edinburgh, wonderful staff
    We didn't know the hotel had no lift, and we had heavy bags - but Daniel was superb. He carried the bags up the four flights of stairs to a room with a magical view of Edinburgh. Then, when he told him where we wanted to go and showed him our guidebook map, which was sketchy, he printed out a map with a clearly marked path.The location was perfect. And the other staff (whose names I don't remember) were friendly and helpful.

    Stay somewhere else
    This hotel was not what it appeared to be online. It was very overpriced for what we got when we checked in. There is no elevator, the wifi and phone did not work, the sheets had holes, and curtains are damaged, there is water damage on the ceiling, etc.. We do not recommend you stay here. Keep looking.

    Service and friendliness at the reception desk was amazing! The hotel is a short walk from the train station and near shopping and restaurants.

    Very Good8.0
    Beautiful classic Edinburgh hotel
    The hotel is very well-located in Edinburgh - just a couple minute's walk to Princes Street and the heart of the city. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. We needed a wine opener and one of the staff brought one from her home for us to use! The only caveat is that if you have a room in the front, there is a casino across the street and that can get very noisy from 3:00 to 5:00 A.M. I would certainly recommend this hotel, but be sure to ask for a room that isn't on the street side.
