Stayed here for trip to Edinburgh Fringe with my sister. We shared the bed and found it big enough for two. Also liked that duvets were individual and bed linen very good quality. Hotel geared up for Fringe users as had a bag storage so you could leave your bag before and after check in/out. Very central location, right by Waverley station and short walk to both old and new towns of Edinburgh. Breakfast is plentiful, self service buffet in the bar/reception area. Seating can be a bit of a bunfight though, case of having to grab a table when one becomes free. Continental menu but unlimited. Breakfast was £7.50 on a pay as you go system. I thought it was good value. You would pay at least that if you ate out for breakfast. Very impressive design to the breakfast facilities, all packs away afterwards to become the bar later. German efficiency. During the Fringe room prices treble but felt we paid a fair price for Edinburgh in August. If you come to Edinburgh in August you must expect to pay Fringe prices
In a nutshell I didn't feel we got ripped off.
