We stayed here for one night, it's in a great location for the city centre, however our room was dirty. The bathroom had hairs in the shower and was full of limescale. The table where we ate breakfast was scattered with crumbs before we sat down to eat, and whole place was just generally dusty and dirty.

First impressions were not great, entrance outside was untidy, hall was cramped, dark and not very inviting. The double room, en suite was a reasonable size, brightly decorated, the view from the bedroom window was unto a back unkept garden. The bathroom was adequate, shower was okay and shower gel and shampoo were provided.The towels smelled clean but were shabby....

The single room and the bathroom were clean, bathroom was big and modern, the single room was more old-fashioned, the heating worked fine. I had a view to the street, there was not a lot of traffic, especially just a few cars at night. I liked very much that you cold darken the room with curtains. About a 20-25 min...

You just get what you pay for, a bed for the night with a breakfast in the morning. This place was just as I was expecting, basic en suite room with an average cooked breakfast in the morning, got up in the morning had breakfast and out sightseeing all day, just used as a base for the night

Stayed here with the girlfriend for a birthday weekend. The room is easily worth 4 stars, with good layout and decor, and ensuite was very modern. However, the smell of cigarettes filled the property, we could tell someone was smoking indoors as the odour hit us the second we left the room. George was a great guy, very helpful and...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

“Very comfortable for a family of 3 in room 5. Never saw other rooms for more than 2 people. You can hear people on the street at night talking at times but it wasn't that loud. WI Fi worked great and room decorated very cozy.”

“Our room slept 3, faced the street and had a private bathroom. There is a pretty steep staircase to get to our room, but not bad at all. We never intended to spend any time in our hotel since we were always out and about in Edinburgh, so lack of a "common room" was not an issue.”

“Room 8 is a good room - has its share of stairs but it is one of the rooms with an ensuite washroom (WC).”

“The single rooms on the top floor are good - quiet and comfortable, but small. Ideal for the single traveller. The shared bathroom is no inconvenience.”
