Hotel is good but staff unprofessional
In general hotel Hardware is good but service feft terrible by 3 complains. Unprofessional checkin exp at the beginning. We booked rooms inc. breakfast, but staff seems forget that and didn't tell about info about breakfast and attitude make me feel cold. We booked rooms for 2 nights, but we need to change room key at second day without any notice, which is rediculous why I need to change room key at my second stay? Finally, the housekeeper mistakingly take 3 of our switch adopters because they may think it's belonging to hotel, which is very rediculous that 1. We stay in hotel for 2nightd and they took away switch auditor at 1st night; 2. The type of 3 adopters are different from hotel's in color and make no sense to make this mistake. By the way, when talking this issue with receptionist, her attitude shows it seems not hotel mistake even if her attitude is no unfriendly.

Great stay
location, room size
I was there three nights. Got there early for check in but they had a room ready so let me check in there and then. Room was a great size - really large for a hotel room. Location is right round the corner from Grassmarket so brilliant for unique little places and bars and restaurants and a nice walk up to the Royal Mile. I ate twice in the hotel and was impressed with the quality of the food. My only complaints would be that the heating wasn't great - didn't seem to make much of a difference when I had it on. Also, the shower was too hot and I couldn't seem to change the temperature - close to scalding temperature. I did let them know at front desk and they said they would have a look but I didn't notice any difference. Great size bathroom with a bath and a separate shower and the toilet itself completely separate. Staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was small but cute! I would happily stay there again.

Old hotel
Staff service with reasonable location
In general, I was expecting better stay condition since it claimed to be 4 star hotel. Apart from the very old furniture and old-fashion bathroom, a very helpful staff service has offset it. Maybe I was just being unfortunate to have that rusty old room. However, I don't think I will be back for this hotel again.
