The location of the hotel is great ,but keep in mind princes street is mainly shops ,if you are looking for the night life you will need to look elsewhere in the city .The work that is going on along princes street is something else to consider ,buses ,taxi dont run down street ,on saying that transport is not too far away .
Checkin at hotel is simple enough ,there is an automatic checkin machine ,staff were on hand to help if you had any problems.
We had a room on the same floor as the reception ,room was plenty big and was clean and tidy . View from window was not great we looked over a dentist and some nesting pigeons . We were disturbed by what sounded like a refuse truck each night . I would suggest that you ask for a room overlooking the castle .
We had problems with a toilet in our room ,this kept us awake the first night .The issue with toilet was sorted midday the following day .We did ask to be refunded for this night and i have to say we were refunded without any real problems .
As previously mentioned you get 30 min wifi daily and you can purchase more time via reception (24 hours £3.00 )
We did the £22 meal deal , which is fine for a night maybe two but thereafter the menu gets boring ,so if you are planning a long stay ,keep you options open and decide on a daily basis .
The staff were all very friendly and very helpful . We felt the restaurant could have been better staffed as at times they were over stretched . Helen in the restaurant was very efficient and helpful . Try and get a seat by the window in the restaurant the view is gorgeous .
