Nice, clean, modern, great budget. The service is good, and the location is perfect, in the middle of Old Town and New Town, great for touring and nightlife. I highly recommend this stay. The bed are really comfortable.

Myself and my husband stayed in this hotel for two nights whilst in Edinburgh for the marathon. While searching for accommodation, we had found most city centre hotels out of our price range and began looking outside. However, I stumbled upon this hotel at the last minute.
For the price we paid,you could not ask for more with regards to service,location and cleanliness.
Walking out of it's front door, Waverley train station is immediately in front of you,with Princess street and all the main shops. Even better, The Royal Mile is literally behind the hotel, with the Castle and Holyrood a short walk up or down.
The room was small but smartly decorated and spotlessly clean with a television and hair dryer. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was again small but well equipped with a lovely shower, and very clean.
I also couldn't fault the staff. They were friendly, efficient and helpful at all times.
Overall a fantastic hotel. Not one offering luxurious spa treatments and extras,but a more than comfortable stay in a fab location.

The hotel is located perfectly, with few mintutes to the railway station, Royal miles and the new town. You can also enjoy the excellent view of the valley from the window of the room! It's pretty quiet though the hotel is just at the main street.
The room is large and comfortable, but you have to ask the staff if you want kettle, teabags/coffees although they are free. The basin is a bit small but other than that, the bathroom is superb!
It's a pleasant stay with great value.

Nice contemporary rooms. Slightly strange layout - hotel goes back. Would recommend. Downside was breakfast - not very interesting and not enough spaces so some people sat on bar stools and ate on their knee.

Booked as part of a girls weekend, I had no prior knowledge of the hotel and was very pleasantly suprised. The location is great, just across the road from waverley railway station and on the corner of market Street and Cockburn Street which leads up to the Royal Mile.
The hotel is very new, Jan 2013, immaculately clean and very nicely decorated, think boutique hotel but very simple and minimal.Reception was friendly, efficient and accomodating (we wanted to be together). The rooms are simply furnished but more than adequate, double glazing ensured no noise and we overlooked the main street. Comfortable bed and lovely shower. Tea and coffee facilities and various other extra's available from reception.
The whole party were very pleased with the hotel and thought it offered excellent value. We all agreed we would definitely go back. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor, overlooking the front towards the station. No noise.
