This hotel has a great location, it's probably it's biggest selling point. A stone's throw from the train station, very close to the Royal Mile etc.
We had a city view room and was worth paying extra for as the view was amazing - a kind of view you'd pay at lot more for usually. The facilities are great, I would describe it as the German equivalent of a Premier Inn style of hotel but perhaps a little more modern and nicer.
There are some niggles but only slight. For instance the power point is nowhere near the kettle so we had to balance the kettle on a stool to make a drink! The shower pressure was not great and temperature flunctuated a little. Perhaps having all of the walls white was not a good idea as there are black marks already (and this hotel is quite new.) Overall though these are minor points and the hotel is excellent value considering it's location.
