We opted for cheap and cheerful lodgings during our stay in Edinburgh however it turned out that 'cheap' and 'cheerful' do not always go hand in hand! When we arrived at the given address we had to walk back to the 'Braveheart' guesthouse to pick up our keys, although it was a bit of a nuisance, it's only about 10 buildings away so it's very short. Our room was tiny and musty with only one hanger in the wardrobe and an extra storage heater. The lamp on the locker didn't work and the towels and bed sheets smelt strongly of a sickly sweet detergent. There was a weird sort of porch extension onto the room which was basically an easement to the bathroom. The shower and toilet were in two serperate cubicals, with a note on the shower door (which wouldn't close properly) explaining that the water had to be let run for "ten minutes" before entering! We laughed a lot! Only the hot tap in the toilet room worked so once the water in the shower was running, the whole water system began to boil making brushing my teeth a little painful!! To get to breakfast you have to walk back to the other guesthouse. Breakfast is adequate however it is strictly from 8 - 9am, which for some may be a little early. The staff here are a little under-informed about the city, however more importantly they are willing to help and look things up for you. I'm rating this as average because although i wouldn't recommend to stay here, it was cheap and we got what we paid for.
