We booked our two night stay through last minute. com as a 'secret' hotel so were very pleasantly surprised with the hotel we were allocated. We paid around £220 for two nights half board for the two of us which was an absolute bargain.
Agree with all comments beforehand, found hotel staff very friendly, especially Rita in the restaurant.
Thoroughly enjoyed the pool, steam room and sauna on the lower ground floor - all very clean and very quiet on the two occasions we used it.
The only negatives I would say is the location of the hotel, a little out of the main area - 20 minute walk to the centre and all uphill. Also, there are no nice views from the hotel rooms, we overlooked an office block, although I guess you are in a city centre so perhaps expecting too much.
The old town is in our opinion the best part of Edinburgh and the right area to stay so would probably use the hotel again if we could get another bargain deal.
