“Great value”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We stayed here for a visit to the Playhouse. Location is excellent, just a short walk from the station and round the corner from the Playhouse. When we arrived the manager, John, advised us that the hotel was being upgraded and if anything was wrong to let him know. Couldn't really complain about anything, room was clean, functional and comfortable with a decent sized shower. Thought the branded mugs and coasters were a nice touch. Breakfast was ok, only thing (not really a complaint) was the plastic glasses for the juice.
I would definitely recommend Hotel Twenty, £63 for a double room was a bargain, and will probably use it again to see how the refurb is going.

I stayed here a night before a week long tour of scotland and two nights post tour with my boyfriend and mum- both times we had the same room.. "Featuring views of the back garden" - please note this is actually a room at the front of the buliding only a few metres from a busy road, however on the otherside of the road is a park, so i guess not complete false advertising. This would have been absolutely fine (im usually a good sleeper) except the window dont close tightly and there is a constant breeze and noise entering the room. The venitian blinds dont close completely and curtains are not block out so light filters through very easily. The modern bedding is nice but the springs of the bed could be felt and the pillows (even after havin extra due to a spare bed) were quite uncomfortable. Also the bedheads on two of the beds were tipping like they werent screwed on properly. I appreciate bathroom wasnt updated yet - it was still quite functional and large but the toilet didnt flush properly 100% of the time. The breakfast is very basic but fine (i dont eat cooked english breakfasts though). The heating isnt set come on until 8pm for a few hours and doesnt come on in the morning which we found a little uncomfortable as it was quite cold. Also we were completely lost when we first arrived as there is no sign to the reception which is down stairs! I have been travelling for 6 months around the world and to be blunt i have stayed in cheaper/better quality hostels, but im sure these things will all improve when renos are complete :) Dont get me wrong there are definitely a few positives - LOVED having a bar fridge in the room (this is so rare!) the location was central, staff were very helpful plus it is pretty well priced for £90 a night for 3 adults. The thai restuarant down stairs was fantastic aswell and provided us with room service for no extra charge!

Room Tip: If youre a light sleep dont choose a room with "back garden views"

We just returned home after a short break at the hotel twenty. It's an absolute bargain for a central Edinburgh hotel. It is a 10 minute walk from Waverly Station and a 5 minute walk to the Playhouse, a very central hotel for a tourist in Edinburgh. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was continental and adequate. The staff are all friendly and John certainly goes out of his way to make you feel very welcome. Will certainly stay there again when in Edinburgh.

I gave Hotel 20 '5 out of 5' on the basis that it's an absolute bargain for a central Edinburgh hotel, the room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. It's not a 5* hotel but it's charging hardly more than a Hostel, and yet the rooms themselves were of a very high standard. The staff were also friendly and accomodating. I would certainly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: I rated the Fitness Centre and Room Service as Excellent because the Hotel offers neither, but the a...

The customer service especially is top notch, John the manager was amazingly helpful when I had a booking issue with Laterooms. Can't think of anything negative to say. Will hopefully be staying up there again soon!

This is a small (I think 12 rooms) hotel, and I arrived after midnight. I was let in, got my key and was in my room with minimum fuss and maximum courtesy and attention. My room was small, but big on decor, black, red and white, not your usual bland hotel room. Facing the front I expected traffic noise to be a problem, but it was not, and I was not bothered by noise from other hotel users. The bed, shower and room facilities were good. Breakfast was continental and adequate, served downstairs.
The biggest plus was the friendly staff, and the price, great value for money considering its location which is so handy for a tourist in Edinburgh.
The negatives: well, I'm a big woman and the single room was small, but acceptable. The stairs might be a problem for the elderly or disabled as both reception desk and breakfast room were downstairs.
