“Easter at Piries, solid base”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Recently stayed at this hotel on a break booked via Superbreaks (note great value for money), we were upgraded to junior suite automatically which was great. Overall, staff pleasant, building in need of updating. To be honest was good base for exploring the city over 3 days so no complaints.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed in Edinburgh over the easter bank holiday we spent very little time in this hotel due to the vast amounts to see and do.
The Piries hotel is very clean and and has all the facilities you need to make your stay comfortable.the staff were very helpful and the locals are very friendly.

On the down side this hotel has no parking which is a nightmare and very expensive in this part of the city so travel by train if possible.

the location of this hotel is 8/10 with only a 5-10 min walk in to the center.

I would recommend this hotel for your stay and is very worthy of its 3 star raiting.

It started badly. I had emailed a request for a room with a view, meaning upstairs, but was placed in a dungeon with a 20 cm slit-view of pedestrian legs, too cramped for a table, and TV so high on the wall one had to lie on the bed to watch it. Next day I was removed upstairs, and this was perfect, a view of the 'garden' topped by city chimney pots. Clean and spacious, excellent bed, TV and teabags, etc. Bathroom modern, yet shower lava-hot and impossible to adjust to warm. Ceiling lights, therefore hard to shave with chin in shadows - pretty typical for the UK.
Piries is located close to Haymarket station, the Airlink bus - trams to airport and city centre soon - splendid Asian restaurants and Thomson's Bar, a heritage pub.

Room Tip: Keep away from the cellar rooms!

Hotel is in a good location and is reasonably comfortable. Breakfast is quite poor but does the job I suppose.

My biggest issue was the very rude receptionist who abruptly told me she was 'too busy' when I asked for service at the bar. Another huge issue was the shower, 10 of us stayed there and all rooms had a shower that was either freezing or blistering hot.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The room was impeccably clean and spacious; the staff were friendly and informative and the location was perfect for exploring the city.

The hotel was easy to find from the airport bus and the 24-hour reception was beneficial, as it allowed us to check out without and worries.

Booked this hotel through the BA website and got a fantastic deal. Though the rooms are small, they are clean and if you wanted any extras they were happy to oblige.

Located around the corner from Haymarket station, it is only a 20 minute walk from the Centre of Edinburgh, or there are numerous bus routes into town if you don't fancy a walk.

Would recommend at a great place to stop if you are on a city break, and will be spending most of you time out of the hotel.
