Couldn't get a better location in Edinburgh if you want to be close to where everything is happening. Hotel itself is modestly nice with a personal touch. A few freebies which is always appreciated when traveling. Beds and bedding were great.

Pretty nice for the price. The location is especially great. Check-in was smooth and I found my room no problem. There was a system in place when I arrived that meant you'd use the elevator going up and the stairs going down, but the lift seemed to be broken after the first day. Not a massive problem but there's definitely not enough room to pass on the stairs, so be mindful of that. My main problem was the noise made by the air conditioning, which I understand may sound like a petty complaint, but as a Brit I'm not used to that clatter. I made the mistake of turning it off and coming back to a freezing cold room so I wouldn't recommend that. You can certainly appreciate that this hotel has been refurbished not too many years ago. The waterfall shower is a strong selling point and indeed very lovely. Though, I do doubt whether most customers would get any use out of the 30-pin iPod dock, and it seemed like my TV had been disconnected. Overall, not a bad stay, beats a hostel.

The property was very well located and the interior decor was quirky and cute (cartoon themed) I stayed in a cozy double which meant it was tucked into a nook which was perfect for me but those with longer legs that stretch over a normal bed might want to opt for one of the more standard room options. I slept very well! The coffee and tea cake options included in the room were delightful. Front staff was lovely.

needs a better cleaning program
Cleaning lady was rude... she also used her bare hands to “wash” our tea cups in the sink.... we thought we were getting fresh ones everyday... until our last day when we saw her do that :( Pretty gross... we also had a dirty floor the entire stay and asked for it to be vacuumed/mopped and it never was. Just disappointing because we loved the location and I do visit Edinburgh fairly often. Also the front desk girls didn’t seem to care when we complained about the cups...
