Convenient cause a departmental store attached, although the room is bit small & the hot water running out of order during our stay.but average I think is still good for short stay

The hotel was pretty basic and I didn't feel it was really up to the 4* rating. Rooms were standard and we didn't try any hotel food so I cannot comment on this. But the location was brilliant. It's near the top of Princes Street so within easy walking distance of both the new town and the old town. Public transport in Edinburgh is great - lots of buses stop at Waverley Station which is less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The airport bus drops and picks up from there as well so it's the cheapest way to get to the airport. The buses left very frequently so would definitely recommend using this service.

A comfortable bed in the centre of Edinburgh

I think the hotel is currently preparing for a refurbishment, but either way, the building did seem a little antiquated and tired. It was a perfect location though for us, moments away from any of the central attractions of Edinburgh and transport links. The bed was large and comfortable even though the rest of the facilities weren't the best, we didn't have any problems and the room was pleasant enough. I've also stayed in the sister hotel in Glasgow, which was similar but a little more spacious. Overall, I thought the price was perhaps a little steep, but then it was booked quite late, and it is in the centre of the city, so I suppose it balances out? It will be interesting to see how the refurbishment turns out, because then it may have a lot more going for it.

It was an ok stay but the hotel could do with some renovation. The windows didn't close properly and the carpet in the corridor smelt of vomit. However the location was perfect for all the great sights of Edinburgh and the view was very pretty. All in all it was a so so stay.
