What a hotel – we stayed here having received gift vouchers as a Christmas prezzie and had a fantastic time. Our room was upgraded to one of their suites…and this was before they knew it was my birthday! The Krug suite was fabulous, being very luxurious and having a bathroom as big as the large bedroom area. It could actually qualify as having two bathrooms: one with standalone bath and the other with a huge shower. We also really liked the little balcony overlooking the bistro. Bistro closes down around 11pm so no complaints about the noise level, certainly no noise comes in from the street.
The bed was comfortable and MASSIVE! All facilities you would expect (tea/coffee-making; iron and board; wardrobe; safe; mini bar- with actual milk for the tea!; TV) plus some nice extras in the Nespresso machine, free paper and provision of fluffy bathrobes. The room is quite dark, which makes it cosy and great for sleeping.
We had a drink in the pretty courtyard area; we didn’t eat there as we had another reservation but the food looked very good. Probably at the upper end of the bistro scale with mains £18+.
The location is perfect: quiet yet central with cafés, shops, the castle, the Grassmarket and the Royal Mile in very easy reach. It’s about 5 mins walk from the Royal Mile and about 8 mins to the Grassmarket, which has several bars and restaurants. Recommend Biddy’s or Southern Cross for lunch, Mary’s Milk bar for gelato and the Mussel and Steak Bar for dinner. Nearby, Mum’s Comfort Food and The Elephant House do nice breakfasts, too.
The staff were great and we appreciated being able to leave our bags with them before we checked in and after we checked out at no extra charge.
We shall definitely be returning! Thanks for a very nice birthday stay!
