Comfortable,clean, reasonably priced and slap bang in the centre of Edinburgh. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to visit this fantastic and beautiful city. Would most definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night and found the location excellent. The views of the castle and Princes Street are stunning. The rooms could probably do with a refurbishment, but they are clean and have everything that you need. The breakfast was excellent and provided great value for money. The best places to park if you are staying for the weekend are George Street or Charlotte Square.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and the location is very convenient to all the attractions in Edinburgh. We were able to walk to most attractions. The hotel did not have air conditioning, which is not uncommon, but they did provide a fan for the room. This hotel definintely met our needs while staying in Edinburgh. If we ever return to Edinburgh, we would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Due to street noise, choose a room on higher floor.

Stayed here for a couple of nights and whilst the location on Princes St. is very good, the accommodation itself left a lot to be desired in my opinion. I certainly don't think I could recommend it based on the cost versus the quality.

This is a standard Mercure hotel (not fancy, comfortable enough, clean, not too expensive)that is extremely well located, within walking distance of the historic center, near nice restaurants and other attractions in Edinburgh, while being away from the crowds. The other advantage is that the bus (and LRV) stops from the airport and the railway station are very close, making it very convenient for travellers.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms are better. If you can get view to the castle, that is even better.
