Totally nt worth it's value at all.

The best thing of this hotel is its location. It's closed to the Calton Hill.
We visited Edinburgh in the middle of November. It's 2 degree outside. The staff are nice. However, The heater in my room is broken. I have a tub in my room but NO HOT WATER and water in my room is YELLOW!!!!!!! I spend 100 pounds for a signal room without hot water and heater. I have to go to other room to take shower and put a extra heater in my room. Why don't I just go to stay the hostel. It not worth it at all.

Clan, good location and good breakfast

Clan, good location and good breakfast
I stayed here for 4 nights and had a comfortable stay. Good breakfast to start the day and a short walk to places to visit. Good restaurants also around the hotel for lunch and dinner. Tailend Restaurant is very near, one of the more popular restaurants on Edinburgh.

Practical location with anything you might need within walking distance. The staff is friendly and very helpful and the refurbished rooms are beautiful.
Overall pleasant! We didn't try the hotel bar, but everything else was just grand. The breakfast is very good and reasonably priced. The hotel is done up to a high standard and offers a nice quiet night's sleep. I have nothing to remark on, truly a delightful place to stay!

budget but good value

buffet breakfast, location, 24 hour reception
A simple and affordable option in a convenient location. Rooms could be updated, but the bathroom was great. Buffet breakfast is surprisingly generous

Best hotel ever for my trip to Europe

Spacious room, beautiful design, has everything you need
My stay was fantastic and I highly recommend this hotel. It is quite a walk from the Waverly train station, almost 20 mins. Recommend to take a bus instead. The room was spacious and had a hot water kettle. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was huge. My best hotel stay for my Europe trip. The room feels almost 4 or 5 star.
