I will begin with the good since there are some positive aspects of the hotel. First of all the location is amazing. We arrived by train from London to Waverly Station and the hotel is just around the corner and very easy to find. It is located just minutes from the castle and the royal mile. Secondly the suites are very big. It was only the two of us but this would be perfect for a family. A fully decked out kitchen, a dining room, living room with couch and TV, laundry room and of course bathroom and bedroom.
Now for the bad, and let me say I may have been soured to the situation due to a very bad cold I was dealing with. Now even though the suite was clean, the bathroom was a little moldy around the shower and we ran out of toilet paper and Kleenex because the room was not serviced on our second day. The bed and pillows were incredibly uncomfortable and I did not get a single good nights sleep. Even though I did not hear a peep from any neighbors in the hotel the windows were not sound proof and i heard every siren, drunk person, garbage truck, etc going up the street they were also not sealed well and cold air poured in like an air conditioner. The heater in the bedroom was not working so we had to crank it up in the hallway and prop open the bedroom door to let some heat in. The TV was not working and they were not able to fix it the entire time we were there and they did not offer us anything in compensation. Again I know your not in Edinburgh to stay in your room and watch TV, but since I was feeling ill sitting in the room staring at the wall was not enjoyable.
