We arrived in Edinburgh early thursday morning. The staff was nice enough to allow us to drop our bag off early so that we could explore the city. We checked in at 2:30pm. The room was very clean and nice, the bathroom was very big and was a pleasant nice stay. The only issue which was apologized for by the front staff was the internet. It did not allow free wifi in our hotel room, stopping right before going through the hallway there.
Other then that it was very nice play to stay.
We splurged. We're so happy we did. There is something exciting about staying in THAT hotel in any city, the one that stands out and makes people wonder, "What is THAT building?" The room was beautiful, with a large white marble bathroom and the most comfortable bed we slept on in weeks. But the little things are also fun: the nightly turndown with the little card that tells you tomorrow's weather, the free fancy water when we arrived, the doorman, the big fancy staircase with stained glass windows, the art, the fresh flowers in the lobby--that kind of stuff. The train station is literally right beside/underneath the hotel (we didn't hear train noise at all, but our friends did, just a heads-up) so was extremely convenient, and you are just steps from Old Town. Breakfast was pricey but very high-quality with unusual items for the taking. It's expensive for sure, all the way around. But it's also really, really fun.
The hotel is in a very good location to access this lovely city. Stylish interior. Staff very helpful. Breakfast and restaurant very good. If you are in the added rooms, as we were which looks like an office block from the outside you may be woken at 7am by tables being put out by the church to sell their huge collection of books. Also if like we did you come back for a rest in the afternoon before going out for the evening the same process is reversed at 4pm. I hope they make lots of money though as it's for a good cause Christian Aid.
The room itself although very comfortable was a disappointing size especially the bathroom. Very cramped, no storage and one thing really bad a shower curtain! There was surprisingly no drawer storage whatsoever. So underwear and other items had to be left in the case for the duration of our stay. The whole thing seemed to be style over substance.
Great stay right from the beginning. Staff were fantastic and very helpful. The room was as shown on the sight and was very comfortable. We were near some great restaurants and pubs. Bus and tram service at the corner. If you enjoy strolling you are a 20 minute walk from major sites. We are traveling the UK for 2 weeks. Best hotel of the trip.
Charming small hotel, with really great staff. The Butlers were always happy to help whether with unpacking, drinks or simply a chat. My room was advertised as one of the "petit" ones - perfect as I was travelling alone but probably a little small for two. The decor was a little dated in places, but in many ways part of the charm. A lovely small hotel in the new town!

We loved our time at Cityroomz. Very nice staff. A basic hotel that gave us a great stay for a reasonable price considering we were in the shadow of the Edinburgh Castle. Loved all the stairs as I have a Fitbit, but there is an elevator for the less fit. One bad night out of 5 with inconsiderate hotel guests who don't understand the rules of public behaviour but not the hotels fault.
