Booked this hotel last minute and was pleasantly surprised with our stay. Got a family room on the second floor, the room was nicely decorated, nice big beds, kids beds were comfortable, TV worked fine, great shower and well heated.
The hotel is being renovated so the first floor is a bit of a mess as is the staircase down to reception but it will be nice when it's finished. The "view" from the family room (216) was onto a pretty grotty looking outdoor stair case - I assume also under renovation.
Location wise it's great, 5 mins from the EICC and Lothian Road. Parking however is an issue - there is none ! It's all residents permits around the hotel and the traffic wardens are notorious so don't chance it. The hotel give you a discount for the NCP car park (converted waste ground) about 5 mins walk away but it's still £12 a day !
The staff were very friendly and accommodating to all our needs and the wifi worked pretty well as well - which is free as well.
I'd go back but leave the car elsewhere
