This is hotel is so well designed, beds are so comfortable, staff is so kind and friendly, showers are excellent and in some rooms you even have a play station. But why oh why do they run a noisy pub just below the rooms. It's a misnomer really, hotels are meant to be places for rest, but here, the loud bass and music play on without a worry in the world until 2am. A real pity really because this has great potential to be one of the best hotels in the City of only they gave up their schizophrenic noisy and loud size for a more peaceful, serene and quiet experience. A spa could maybe replace that noisy pub dear landlord!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay with us – we appreciate all the feedback we receive from our guests.

I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed the newly refurbished rooms we have on offer.

Unfortunately due to our city centre location, some of our rooms can be affected by noise on the weekend. We do have quiet rooms available upon request, and we try to accommodate all guest requests wherever possible.

I was attending a conference in that area of Edinburgh, had time to spare on arrival the night before the event to get to a hotel but didn`t want to travel far first thing in the morning so I searched for a reasonably priced hotel in this area. The Stay Central was less than 4 hundred yards from the conference, was keenly priced and looked fine on the internet.
The hotel is a wee bit off the beaten track yet close to the main street. It`s not very well sign-posted but I had used the AA route-finder to find my way from the bus station. Nevertheless I almost walked right past it.
I stayed on a Wednesday night which was guiet but there is a lovely courtyard which my room overlooked and I suspect it could possibly be noisy at weekends.
The room I was assigned was a family room bit it and the en-suite shower room were immaculately clean and had everything I needed, including two large TV screens!!! Tea-coffee with marshmallows to eat, loads of pillows extra blankets which were not required as it was warm enough and a safe in the wardrobe.
Breakfast was included and there was a good choice. I chose the full Scottish which came with coffee/tea and toast and was more than adequate.
An evening pint of beer in the bar was a bit pricey but is probably normal for Edinburgh.
I was phoned a few days before to check if there was any help that could be offered and that was nice. I enjoyed the whole experience and rate it as one of my best overnight hotel stays.

Room Tip: Perhaps be aware of the possibility of the courtyard being noisy on warm evenings or weekends...but I can`t say for definite...it may be absolutely peaceful and quiet.

On approach my heart sank as this hotel looked like youth hostel. I was however pleasantly surprised by the quality of finish, cleanliness and stylish decor in the room.
Night time falls and my fears confirmed. Hotel is joined onto a bar/club/meat market blasting out music. If you expect a hotel where you can sleep...don't stay here. If you want to party all night and have somewhere to crash then do stay here.

On a business trip to Scotland with 3 of my colleagues, we decided to "rough it" in a hostel... How wrong we were.
There is nothing rough about stay central (except the non-working air con). And it was truly a pleasure for the four of us to share a room.
More spa style than hostel. Would definitely recommend, especially at £81 per night for 4 people)
