            Basic hotel”

            This hotel have a new name - Atlas. Our room slept 5 people but we were 2. I did say the beds were comfortable and clean and there was fresh towels daily. Sofa was disgustingly dirty with crumbs we put blankets over it to sit. Free wifi.

            Very good location with good value for money ”

            its in very good location, just about 12-15 minutes walk from Edinburgh wavily station; the host was excellent, always smiling and helpful; though it is a hotel but with a personal touch like B&B type which you will like; They have just taken over the property couple of weeks ago and trying hard to improve the reputation. Edinburgh castle is also not far. They have their car parking, unfortunately there was big road works going on so I couldn't take the advantage. I stayed in a family room; It was large, clean with ample spaces; only the bathroom was a bit small; all the amenities were working fine. It was a very good value for money; we stayed as family for 3 nights without any problem; surely I will recommend it to others;

            The room was clean and quiet- and the shared bathroom was always spotless. The woman working in the hotel- the only one I ever saw- is very friendly and attentive to guests needs. She went out of her way to make my stay comfortable and pleasant!

            no lift and sheets and blankets are not changed”

            we requested for a room at ground level but was given a room one level down and you to pass thru 2 flights of stairs. at the ch3ck in somebody had assisted us. but on the day of check oit nobody helped us. we even requested for a transport booking to the airport but none was arranged. fortunately the cleaning lady was there and helped us to book a cab. it is quite far from the center but it is quiet an still 2walkable so the distance is not a concern at all. the biggest concern is that the sheets and blankets were not changed. all are crinkled and wven with a mark of like dried saliva.

            Deco, staff & location

            Room is big. The design of the bathroom is a bit weird as light will only turn on when you close the door. I like the dinning room. Looks very tasty. Breakfast was a bit overcooked. Staff was nice and helpful.

            Nula organización y Nula palabra.”

            Reservé este alojamiento para dos noches con dos meses de antelación. Cuando llegué al alojamiento NO HABÍA NADIE que me recibiera y entregara la llave. Me encontré con una puerta cerrada, y un número de teléfono que no me cogieron (a pesar de llamar insistentemente) hasta 2 horas después. Pensé que era una ESTAFA, pues el alojamiento por supuesto ya estaba pagado. Cuando llegó la persona encargada de recibirme, me dijo que no contaban con mi reserva, y se ofreció reembolsarme la primera noche a modo de disculpas. Cuál fue mi sorpresa, que cuando les reclamé esta noche ya estando en España (y con la prueba de las llamadas), dicen que en ningún momento habían dicho eso y que no entienden mi queja, dando a la web desde la cual hice la reserva una versión totalmente FALSA. Esto hace aun más patente, que además de una NULA GESTIÓN de su alojamiento, NO ASUMEN SUS ERRORES y además no tienen ni un mínimo ápice de dignidad ni de palabra. JAMÁS RECOMENDARÍA A NADIE ESTE "ALOJAMIENTO".
