Relatively new hotel from a German based chain. Really convenient near Waverly Station and close for either the Old Town or the New Town. Prices are very competitive during off season and to be fair even during the Festival period ) if you can get a booking). Room design is contemporary and while new it is fine it is likely that the quality of the furnishings may suffer through use so watch out in a couple of years (think Ibis or Travelodge). Bizarre thing with the lift numbers and floor numbers which are out of phase - a clash of UK and continental floor numbering systems I believe.
Staff very efficient and friendly - bar not that good but it's Edinburgh and the choice is really endless so not really a problem.
Because of price and location it is likely to become a haunt of weekend Stag/Hen parties so maybe not so good at certain times but not a detraction from the hotel itself.
