If one is looking for a conveniently located no frills hotel, with decent amenities and a friendly staff then Grasshopper Hotel is just the place for you. Located right next to the Central Station in Caledonian Chambers this hotel is a good B&B place. They do serve supper now a days though.
The access is slightly tricky. One needs to keep the eyes open for Caledonian Chambers and the hotel flag on the top else it will be missed. Once inside the hotel the check in / check out is efficient and friendly. Tasty Cup cakes being given with Coffee / Tea upon check in is a great gesture.
Rooms are slightly smaller than some of the others I had stayed in during my Scottish trip. I had one large suitcase so it was just ok. Had I got one more large piece of luggage the room would have been crowded.
The rooms and bath were clean with all basic amenities provided. HD Satellite TV in the room was a definite plus.
Breakfast is adequate and catering to most dietary needs, including vegetarian. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The hotel is located very conveniently right next to the central station. One can explore the city center with a good walk right around the hotel. There are enough restaurants around the hotel to again cater to all cuisine requirements.
Overall a pleasant experience though I felt the rooms could have been a bit larger.
