Thanks for your review, it's a shame you didn't get the chance to enjoy breakfast with us, maybe next time. Kind regards
The name describes exactly what you get - a room in the city! Very basic but clean, cheerful decor, comfy bed and a good buffet breakfast for only £4.95. It is very well situated just off the West End of Princes Street and an easy walk from Waverley Station.
Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. As you say we are well situated in the heart of the city. We do also have variety of room sizes, many of them are very spacious, in particular, some of our family rooms. Great to hear that you liked our breakfast. Kind regards
Just come back from a couple of days in Edinburgh with a few mates. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the hotel, not being a big brand name and I’d have to say it was a lot better than I expected. It’s just a ten minute walk from the station, close to Princes street and we had our bags in the rooms in no time at all. My room was maybe a little bit small but the bed was comfy and we weren’t in there much. I thought the shower was good, nice and powerful and all agreed that the help yourself breakfast buffet was great for the hangover and it was only £5! The staff were great with directions to the sights and local pubs and had us on our way in no time at all. I would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a great review, we are always happy to hear from our satisfied guests. We are particularly proud of our super comfortable beds and pillows and our great value buffet breakfast. Kind regards
The staff was lovely and friendly especially, Marie. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Three times we asked if we could stay another night and they accommodated us each time. The staff helped us out when we needed to find a laundry, points of interest, and transit. Everything you could possibly need is within steps of the front door. There are two markets, more restaurants than we could count and The Grosvenor---a fine and quiet pub. The hotel is convenient to Oldtown Edinburgh Newtown, the Edinburgh Castle and many many points of interest.
Wow, you have summed up our hotel perfectly, our team are always happy to help and it is always great when guests extend their stay with us. We are so glad you had such a good time. Kind regards
Two couples of freinds bhaven been there for two nights. Alog this period any room's cleaning was made, neither washroom nor room itself.
Our rooms looked as ceils. Due to the fact that payment was required in advance, there was no possibility to move to another hotel.
Surroundings were in works, so it was impossible to arrive at the hote by car, and no kind of advertisement was made us when we made our booking.
Prices don't correspond neither the hotel nor the service. Incredible at Europe.
Thank you for your comments. We believe you stayed with us in July and as you didn’t speak to us to let us know that your room had not been cleaned for 2 days we could not rectify the situation. We service/clean rooms daily unless a guest requests otherwise, could it be that you left your “do not disturb sign on the bedroom door” which would prevent our staff from entering and servicing your room? Our web site clearly shows information about the tram works especially that there is no vehicular access to the hotel. It also shows where to park and the fact that we have discounted prices at these car parks. Whilst road access to the hotel wasn’t possible during your stay due to the tram works, these are now nearing completion with the road re-opening on October 16th. The dates you stayed with us coincided with the Edinburgh festival and the Open Golf tournament and therefore prices were higher throughout the city. Our prices are very competitive from just £55 per room on some nights. On a general matter and this applies to any hotel, if you have a problem speak to the reception team; you’d be amazed at how helpful they are. Kind regards
Paid £77 a night for a double which was OK considering the central location. Good places to eat in Shandwick Place and nearby Queensferry Street. The interminable road works in Shandwick Place detracted from the overall ambiance of the hotel but did not actually present any problems for walking to Princes Street etc. Bedroom was OK apart from a huge dollop of bird excrement which looked as it had been on the outside of the window for some time. No CH on but room was a bit hot and the window could only be opened a few inches. Bathroom was a bit grubby but cleaning and towel supply were fine. Breakfast was good value at £4.95 with rolls ,croissants, jam, cereal, yoghurt, fruit and fruit juice, ham, cheese, tomatoes etc and as much coffee and tea etc as you wanted. Breakfast room was also clean and friendly staff kept the tables cleared. Reception staff were also helpful and friendly.
