The room reminded us of a large cabin with oversized bunk beds. Three of us stayed in a room that could easily host 8-10. Each bed had it's own TV but half of them didn't work. The space was dark and needed more lights at night. Noise from the bar below could keep you up till 4am. Not a problem if you went downstairs to join in with the drinking. Earplugs are a must if you want to sleep earlier than 4. Centrally located for the Fringe Festival. Some of the best comedy acts were actually in the bar. Despite the noise and the darkness, my two Millennial children said they would return.

Stayed with girlfriends at STAY Central for the Edinburgh Fringe. What a great location. Everything is nearby; The Castle, The Royal Mile, The Grassmarket with its array of eateries. The Three Sisters pub adjoins STAY Central and they do a jolly good breakfast for the hotel. Breakfast service was a bit slow (only) on our first morning but in their defence it was incredibly busy because of the festival. I would definitely stay here again. There room facilities included sparkling and still bottles of water as well as cans of Irn-Bru, a couple of Scottish marshmallow biscuits and a Refresher bar! Quality toiletries. Very comfy bed and with cool cotton sheets. All the staff very helpful and on the ball for anything you need or want to know.

Awesome place to stay if you are backpacking. You get some awesome discounts if you stay there, plus just outside you have a great place to drink and eat. Everything is close by the only thing that I did not like is the continental breakfast but other than that, an awesome concept and an excellent place.

The hotel location is next to a large pub, and the courtyard is the sight of the Fringe festival/international festival. Very loud atmosphere until 3am in the morning. The hotel is also a bit run down, especially for the price.

Hi 492trudyl,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us.

Firstly I'm sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your time here. We make no secret of our neighbours The Three Sisters and advertise this on our website as being our popular bar and night club. We do have a range of quiet rooms within the hotel and would be happy to allocate you in one for your next visit.

We do hope you will choose one of our Central Edinburgh Hotels for your next stay in Edinburgh.

The courtyard was crazy busy on a Friday evening but our room was quiet. Perfect location to walk to the Tattoo. Comfortable accommodation with all amenities, and a very good breakfast. Pleasant reception staff.
