My family & I visited the Grosvenor in April '04, & found the experience quite acceptable. The Hotel is by no means anything special to look at nor are the rooms, they are simple rooms- adequate to the task. Beds were comfortable enough, the largest problem we found was with the bathroom facilities. I too, stayed in the room which has the shower within a closet (not all the rooms are like this), & found this clostrofobic & inadequate. The shower or toilet didnt work terribly well (aka water pressure- common problem in uk), but we did manage. The location of the hotel was ok, though the surrounding streets are extremely dirty with litter. There are many hotels within the same area, & all seems quite alright- many perhaps more so than the Grosvenor. My advice though would be to go to a hotel closer towards 'The Royal Mile'- attraction near castle. In all, we enjoyed our stay, found the staff quite friendly, though I would have to agree with a previous review regarding the breakfast service. Nice food, however often felt rushed by the waitress, & outnumbered by all the guests waiting. For a short stay, worth a look, though plead for the room without the closet shower!
