Room number 4 smelled very bad, of so much cigarette smoke. Neither me or my boyfriend are smokers and this was a non smoker room. We told the manager after only a few minutes, he denied it and said it was “due to the old...More

Very well located, quite low standard in the rooms. Part of the window fell into floor during the night. Only one exit out, which means no emergency exit. What happens in case of fire? Breakfast ok. Only recommended for the location.

Great location, Majic was very helpful finding somewhere to park on a Sunday evening, very comfortable room (at the top of the house but Majic carried my bag). I didn't have breakfast but it smelt amazing.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
