We ended our Scottish holiday in Edinburgh, for 2 days, and stayed here. This hotel is within walking distance from the old and new centre.
The interior feels pretty new, and clean. The bathroom/shower is good, but I missed an extra shelf or a some hooks, to put stuff.
The bed was quite huge and comfortable, which was nice and a big plus. The first night we slept like a dream. However, the second night we were rudely awoken by loud cabdrivers in the front of the hotel at 6.30AM, who came to pick up guests.
Also the hotel itself is quite noisy, due to lacking good isolation or thin walls, so you hear doors slamming very loud, also from personnel, which I think is pretty irritating.
Because I really like my morning sleep, I deduct 2 points.
Make sure, if you stay here, not to get a front-side room.
Downstairs they have a lounge room with couches, and a self-serving bar, where you can get your own drinks, be it cold, beer or beverages, or a choice of wine and several whiskeys, which I personally thought was nice.
