Location is ideal for the first time visitors to Edinburgh. Right next to the old town, close walking distance to Royal Mile, stones throw away from the Edinburgh castle. Also, great pubs (wide selection of whisky and great food) right across the street. Our room was clean and fairly well kept and staff were helpful and courteous.
One major complaint I had was the fact that there was no way to circulate air in the room. First night we were there, it was fairly warm and even with the windows open it was hard to fall asleep (and stay asleep!). The bathroom also didn't feel like it had a fan, so after each shower the room would heat up with damp air, which was not very pleasant.
I don't think I would stay here for a summer visit given how easily the room heats up, but for a first time visit in Edinburgh in the spring it was pleasant enough.
One thing that was a bit confusing was, grabbing breakfast at the hotel on our last day. If you're planning on having breakfast, it's supposedly cheaper to pay ahead than at the restaurant. However, when we ate at the restaurant and settled our bill we were charged the lower price that the front desk had told us. When we asked about it, the restaurant staff told us it was flat price. I'm not sure who was wrong on this, but you might want to double check the price of your breakfast if grabbing at the hotel.
