I'd recommend this. LOTS of stairs; be forewarned. Excellent location to pubs and sights. The hop on bus passes two doors away. Nice old building.

I loved this little hideaway right in the heart of Edinburgh. Close to everything, day and night. I will definitely stay here again!

Nice location, view and bed was comfortable those are all I can say I really liked, and we had the biggest and best room in the place. Have to haul luggage up stairs to the 4th floor. Room had no table or anything to put luggage or anything on just a tiny bedside which was cluttered with tea and coffee stuff. The shower was very cheap and outdated and uses an instahot mounted to the wall in the shower which was very small and the sink was tiny. In my opinion it was overpriced as out of 4 hotels I used on my vacation to both Glasgow and edinburgh it was the most expensive and had the least amenities. Parking was a 15 min walk away. However the owners were nice and helpful with questions about the city when they were there which is only a couple hours a day. If they updated the bathrooms and put in a desk, dresser or even something that folds down it would have been a nicer stay.

Nice cozy clean room for a single.
The room was just right for a single. Nice and airy with the windows open. The location was great. Those with some mobility issues should take note that it’s up several flights of stairs with no elevator.

Great area, but not a very comfortable stay
For the price, I expected a better experience. The area is great; you can walk just about everywhere, and the bus from the airport stops just a few blocks away. The hotel itself is up five flights of stairs, so be warned. When we arrived, there was no answer at the buzzer for about five minutes, which is not great in the winter cold. We were here over New Years, and while we were told there would be no cleaning service on the holiday, they did not leave us an extra roll of toilet paper and we ran out. Besides the holiday, the cleaning crew was great though, and the room nice and clean. They also left a bottle of Prosecco for the holiday, which was thoughtful. The room itself was just alright; it had a bed, a desk, a chair, and two bedside tables. The bed itself was not great... it was a metal frame that had a wooden support built underneath it, but the wooden support collapsed right away, and the bed sank in the middle, leaving my husband and I trying to roll out of the middle of the bed all night. Not very restful. There was only one chair, so there's not really room to hang out except for on the uncomfortable bed. There's wifi, but it's slow. There's also cable TV. The shower water gets quite hot, but the water pressure is low. The bathroom itself is very small. If this place runs a cheap deal, then great. Otherwise, I'd suggest looking elsewhere.
