“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Stayed here for an overnighter so I could go on a night out. Paid £15 for the room so was great value and as cheap as staying in a hostel but with my own (albeit small) room.

Get what you pay for really. A tiny room and toilet but ideal for what I was using it for... a place to crash for a few hours after going out. It's in a good location too, so can't really be faulted if you know what you're getting into!

Well I didn't book this hotel some of my friends did and I had no idea we were staying here until we turned up. I kept quite an open mind as to what to expect but the rooms were too small and the ventilation was awful. Once two of you had a shower it was like a steam room, I couldn't wait to get outside. We seemed to have gotten woken up at god knows what time as we were right next to the stairs and the door. Service was ok staff were friendly and very helpful. The room we stayed in also didn't have any windows.

If you're looking for a place to crash for a night, then this is it!

It cost us a jawdropping 19 pounds for the night. In exchange we got a hotel which was as central as it gets (the whole city was a short walk away) and super clean room with a super clean loo.

But, you do get what you pay for! The rooms, thus, are t-i-n-y. There's literally more space on the bed than off it, and two backpacks in the doorway were enough to leave no floor space visible. The loo looks like it was designed for a train, and its fairly possible to shower, poop and brush your teeth at the same time. But at these prices, I wasn't one to care.

Stay here if you're on a budget, you shouldn't regret it. At least we didn't.

Room Tip: The non-window rooms aren't bad, really. They're decently ventilated. I have a history of fe...

Whether you appreciate the easyHotel or not is purely down to your priorities. For me location and price where of importance so I was content. The location could not have been bettered if I had been sleeping in Edinburgh Castle and the price was the cheapest I have known. I can only vouch for the budget rooms but the easyHotel was cramped (never before would I have considered a fan to be a necessity in Scotland, and in December too), slightly uncomfortable with all but one side of the bed touching a wall. With my pet hate of the bathroom resembling a small wet room the easyHotel is for those who put their passion of travelling before luxurious levels of comfort, thus I had to admit I wouldn't have been able to do half the things I did on my Edinburgh holiday if I didn't rely on the easyHotel. Admittedly I was initially concerned that we had no bin but a Sainsburys bag later and I was pretty much back to what I expected from the pittance I paid. The easyHotel suited me, it was the place I would go to at night and the place that assured me a good day was to follow.

Room Tip: Treat yourself. Go one better then the cheapest room.

I'm giving this a poor rather than terrible simply due to the location, which is excellent - and friendly reception staff.

However, really Easy shouldn't be charging anymore than £15 a night for a small room without a window. It is tiny, and I mean TINY - and I'm a pretty tiny person. This is fine for one night but no more. And even then you had better be a small person. So the low down;

Very thin walls. I hear the guy next door snoring. No doubt if you are unlucky enough you will hear other noises dependant upon your neighbours. Put it this way, I wouldn't like to be there on a Friday/Saturday night when you are more likely to have loud drunk people with no consideration for anyone else but themselves.

Very loud fan which keeps you awake.

Did I mention it is TINY? I mean, you can hardly turn round. Don't travel with more than a small rucksack or suitcase, there really is no space to fling a cat if you get my drift.

Not suitable for people with mobility issues or very heavy bags. No lifts.

So, if you want somewhere cheap-ish for one night, this is ok, purely due to the location, but really, I'd pay no more than £15-£20 a night, I don't care what time of year it is. I'd only come here again if I was extremely skint.

The hotel itself was in a perfect location in the centre of Edinburgh, difficult to beat if you are looking for a room in the centre for a extreme budget rate.

The rooms as you would expect are small, and the bathroom is even smaller.

I booked a large room with window and the view was good, of Edinburgh castle however it was still small. I can't imagine the smaller no window rooms being good.

The website states extras like towels, television etc cost extra however you can watch the tv without a fee and I requested extra towels a few times and was given them free of charge.

Downside of my stay was it could have been cleaner, and on one night the fire alarm went off twice around 2am which was not great.

If you are after an extremely cheap budget hotel in the city centre, this is for you, if you can afford £10 extra a night I would seriously consider booking another budget hotel such as the Premier Inn or Travelodge both of which are near by and much more comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms with a window to the front of the hotel cost slightly more, the view is excellent but the nois...
