Check in staff were really pleasant and friendly, really lovely girl and all began smoothly. She made up a second room key for my other half who was joining me later and kept it on reception for his arrival. I went upstairs for a quick disco nap and was delighted by the blackout curtains and comfy bed. However, the room (Sharlene Spiterri, 309) was tiny - about 2/3 the size of the bathroom which was rather strange! Bed also small (double not king), but very comfy.
The room was also freezing (window had been left open on arrival which would have been fine if the heater had worked). We were offered an additional space heater but we were hardly in the room so no real need. Duvet was warm. The cleaners also left empty boxes and a bottle of glass cleaner on our sink. Our spring water was replaced with an open bottle. There were some VERY noisy pipes which seemed to gurgle and squeak at odd hours of the night.
Also no sound proofing to hallway - woken at night or early morning by cleaners or other guests every day. Expensive stay for tiny, "style over substance" room.
That said, the breakfast was delicious with lovely strong coffee. The location is also perfect for exploring Edinburgh and the rooms are quirky, despite their tiny-ness. I'd recommend halving the bathroom size to give Sharlene some more living space!More
