Having had to vacate my home for the evening due to my wife having a female hen party I headed into Edinburgh to my hotel.
I know the area well and this has easy access to nightlife and for tourists the added please of being close enough to the Royal Mile and Castle.
On arriving I was met with a friendly smile and provided with excellent information by the lady at the front desk. I was given the option of the castle side or the quieter street but I opted for the view. I wasnt bothered by any noise and it was certainly the right choice in terms of view.
The room was spacious and well stocked with towels and toiletries and a super TV not too far away form the bed which is always an irritant of mine in some hotels. This allowed me to relax and watch the world cup in comfort and enjoy the peace and quiet from the obvious noise from my home 26 miles away.
I always get irritated by Hilton even though I am a card holder that wifi is not free in the hotel and price I consider is excessive if I want surf the net from my room. If you attend a Hampton for example the ones I have stayed in are free to all guests and I see no reason why this hotel should be any different. WIFI should be free to all guests regardless of status and the additional costs to provide the service are minimal.
This hotel is in a central location and its clear to see the rooms are of a good standard.
