William W. Couples United States of America, September 16, 2015
Fire! Fire!

There was a fire alarm on first night of our stay. Hotel staff did not call fire department, spent 15 minutes or more going throughout the maze of rooms checking to see if there was a fire. No check to ensure all guests were evacuated. Escape route through basement room with severe tripping hazards and an alleyway littered with hazardous material. Luckily false alarm. Had there been a fire the result could have been disaster. No compensation provided. will not stay in future. A good location is not worth risking one's life.

Great location, but very small.

Location and modern design.
Our stay was good, but the elevator was not working half of the time, so big bags were very inconvenient.

What's nearby? / Directions

Driving directions: From the airport take the A8 towards Edinburgh and join Princes Street. At the west end of Princes Street turn right onto Lothian Road and then take a left onto Kings Stables Road. Carry on and turn left at the Grassmarket. The hotel is located at the end of the Grassmarket at its junction with Victoria Street. A network of frequent buses connects all parts of Edinburgh although the city’s historic centre is fairly compact and best explored on foot.
