Property conditions & facilities




8/10 Very Good

Decent Hotel
The hotel is nice and modern. The hotel shares a courtyard with an office building that leaves their lights on all night making it difficult to sleep if you want to leave the curtains cracked open for air from the window. Fortunately I had an eye mask. The air is quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning and we visited when temps were 80⁰, though these temps were not normal. Luckily we had a small fan in the room to help,but it was stifling hot. Overall the staff was decent. A few very unkind people work there and were sure to treat you with an unkind manner but most were nice upon approach. I like the location of the hotel as it was in the heart of the city and easy to walk outside to a path that leads you straight into the action of Edinburgh. Food delivery services were available at all hours and the front had 24 hour service. A small grocery store is around the corner. Overall I would stay there again as they do offer a small breakfast every morning and they do have elevators, which most hotels only have stairs, and the location is convenient.

2/10 Poor

Lobby is small, though it unlike the rest of the hotel appears to be air conditioned. It was 77f outside but 85f inside our rooms. Fans did little. If there was more ventilationit may have been tolerable, but I was glad we only stayed one night and had a very early flight to catch. Would not book here again outside of winter.

Hot hot hot
There was no air conditioning. We were on the 5th floor and were informed that there was a floor fan in the closet. The temp never got below 85 degrees. The front desk did all they could and were very helpful.

We had a lovely stay in a family room. It was spacious and well thought out although toilet area was very small. We could easily have stayed for a week and not felt too on top of eachother. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times and the breakfast was delicious!

Wonderful stay.
I thought the hotel staff were so friendly and went out of their way to help with any requests. I found the facilities very clean and the breakfast selection was satisfying. I had never been to Edinburgh before and I was so happy with this location as I felt like I had access to all the touristy areas.
