    Staff were fantastic! Location was good but the room was dirty, very small and the bed was awful! Very narrow, lumpy and not clean. Perhaps some coffee/tea/milk sachets would have been welcoming. It was not good value and I certainly would not recommend it.

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
