We were a little nervous after reading some of the reviews before arriving in Edinburgh. The moment we opened the outer door to the building, our minds were put at ease. It's clean, convenient and very spacious with views of the Royal Mile and castle across the bridge. There is free wifi, a stove, refrigerator and washing machine in the kitchen, good shower, a dining table in the living room and all of the beds and sofas were comfortable. Most importantly, the location couldn't have been better.
You do have to walk up several flights of stairs, but if you don't enjoy climbing, you should avoid Edinburgh altogether. There is no service, but clean towels are provided and it feels more like an apartment than a hotel anyway.
There was only one disadvantage that we noticed and it didn't really bother us. Since it's in a popular area, there is noise from the street into the middle of the night as well as the sound of sea birds. The first time we heard them, it sounded like an old woman cackling which frightened our daughter until we were able to explain the sound.
