There’s no getting away from the fact that this is a hotel in desperate need of a face lift. Decor, furnishing and layout of the hotel could all be vastly improved. That said, it’s staff were attentive, polite and professional - things often overlooked by...More
The location of this hotel is just fantastic, next door to Boots the Chemist on Princes Street and so handy for every location in the New Town. We got a very warm welcome on our (early) arrival and offered to leave our cases and told...More
I visited the capital city of Scotland in early November 2017 and stayed in 3 different hotels. This was the first one, I wanted a room with castle view for my first night in Edinburgh. I've read some of the other reviews in here and...More
Booked this hotel for one night as I was attending a conference in the EICC.

Walked in, the lobby was so small you could hardly stand in it. It also had a terrible smell.

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
