Stayed with my wife from 2nd to 4th January 2013 and surely one of the best located hotels in Edinburgh for those who want to shop and drop, shop and drop. Anyone expecting luxurious surroundings with wide open reception, expansive restaurant and evening entertainment will be disappointed but the price paid more than compensated for their absence. Rooms are very clean with comfortable bed and our own experience was very very limited noise either within the hotel or from outside. Bathroom with great shower was also spotlessly clean. Room was cold despite several attempts to get it warm via air-conditioning. Resturant on the 2nd was the coldest restaurant I have ever eaten in. Both mentioned to the receptionist and both dealt with promptly.
Biggest draw back was the lack of a safe in the room to store valuables- really cannnot understand why this is so.
On meals breakfast was great -self service and as many times as you like. Dinner was something different. We had pre-paid the meals package and to our disbelief this meant that many of the options were not available to us despite the fact that some priced similarily - could not understand this and whilst again the food was good the choice was so limited that we eat out on the second night.
All in all would certainly use the hotel again but woudl not book the meal package - much too restrictive.
