Staff were incredibly helpful, as I had left a jewellery box in one of the drawers in our room and they helped me get it back. Would use again!

Short Break ”
City Live -In is a good place to stay for all amenities and visits in Edinburgh, double bed room is a little small and the bed was definitely a queen ann room size. We had a communal kitchen which we never had any issues with. Condiments for tea, coffee etc were all readily available in the reception. All in all you get what you pay for and as we were visiting Edinburgh the room size was not an issue. Thank you to the staff they were excellent being able to leave our luggage at the start of our stay and at the end was fantastic.

Worthwile venue ”
I enjoyed my time at the citylivein. The double room was spacious and clean, with facilities to make your own food on your stay. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I had an enjoyable stay. The only improvement I can suggest was in the 4 days I stayed my sheets and towels were never changed. The corridor of my room could have done with a hoover by the end of it also. I am not aware whether this is a function of citylivein that you have the same sheets/towels, but it might be worth to change it every couple of days.This is along with a quick clean of the room.

Very good located, a little bit noisy!”
We rented an studio. It has space enought, however, at the kitchen we found only a few utensils, for example there was no a coffee machine. The best of this studio was the location, close to everywhere, we visited all the city walking. The worst was that is a little bit noisy due to a main road close to the studio that is usually crowded of cars and motorcycles... despite this, the experience was good.

CityLivein is THE place to stay in Edinburgh. We found everything we needed in the Studio room and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It's not too far to get into the city centre by foot and there are quite a few bus services nearby if need be. We would certainly stay here again.

So much better than expected! No one could be disappointed. Do not delay, book today!”
Great central location but nearby parking quite expensive (£18/day hotel in same street or £2:50/hr, max 4 hrs around corner). Some parking nearby free 17:30-08:30 if spaces available (mostly resident permit holders only). Ideal for traveler using public transport. Mattress springs bit old but hotel peaceful and staff pleasant and helpful 24 hours a day. Tea, coffee and milk sachets included and very convenient fridge and cooking facilities in studios. Ample and modern wardrobe space a bonus! Shower room very good, but shower cabin not recommended for people exceeding 100kg :) Basement table tennis and pool must not be missed, gym also available. Do check out Marco's bar next door, there are discounts for residents at this hotel on pool tables and pizza (30%off!!), gluten free available! I accidentally left my bag with my personal belongings there and retrieved it the following day with no problems. We would definitely book there again. :-)

we really enjoyed our 1 nite stay”
My wife and I chose this place because its near town and near the airport. We had only the 1 night to but we wish we could have stayed longer. A couple of things to note, 1. this is a student accommodation. Room is small, bathroom is small, but it was comfortable enough to get a good night sleep. Bed we chose was smaller than a queen, but not a problem if you're average sized. 2. If you come during summer holidays, you'll have less students around, so its quieter. So take note that if you come during other months, the students may be chatting in the courtyard and the rooms are not well sound proofed. 3. staff were really friendly and Nikola (Nikolai?), took us to our rooms from the reception and was very informative about what to do around town. 4. shower was nice and hot and strong. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to Edinburgh for 2-3 nights.

The shower cubicle was tiny and the mattress was the cheapest, softest most terrible mattress I’ve ever slept on. Other than the above, it was spot on, but the mattress gave me terrible backache and spoilt my stay. Invest in some better mattresses and I’d happily stay again or recommend to others.

We enjoyed our stay, close enough to the main streets by walk (15-25min), for the more comfort-seeking one it's less than a 5 min walk to the bus or tram. Special thanks to the female staff wearing a nose ring, very kind!

Confusing Layout of Premises”
1. Being told at Reception, to 'Go through the wooden door' to get to my allocated room, was totally inadequate. My room was in a totally separate building! 2. No instructions about how to work the plug in the bathroom basin/sink! 3. No facecloths supplied. For tourists, information on bus services and other important information, would be a huge help. I would stay there again if in Edinburgh.

Good location, great place with fridge, a small electric cooker, sink, en suite bathroom - no kettle which was a bit strange seeing as they supply tea and coffee. The only two small things is that the cleaning routine is a bit odd - they clean on day 4 only if you are staying more than seven days so we stayed 6 and the room wasn't cleaned at all (but the staff did very kindly take the rubbish from us). The other thing is that the room was boiling - much, much hotter than out on the street. Overall though it was a very good deal and I would definitely stay there again. Lots of nice coffee places nearby, plenty of restaurants and grocery shops as well as easy access to town.

This is part of a student accommodation, thus everything is quite standard. Fairly good location (within 5-7mins walk to Haymarket station) with many good restaurants around. The kitchenette is available but no toaster. Overall, will consider to stay here again.

They thought we checked out and they threw our food including my charger. Although they bought food for us and replaced my charger (i’m not sure where it was from? Could be fake??) , they did not know how to handle such incident. They did not offer us anything for the hassle that they’ve caused and we were not able to speak to the manager the next day so he could properly apologise to us.

Wasn’t what I expected in the slightest.”
Hi there, I travel quite a bit due to events and also friends that live in Edinburgh. I booked this place due to how lovely it looked in the photos. It was my partners birthdays which was quite a special occasion however I was truly disappointed with the services. I checked in and after about an hour of decorating the room making myself feel at home I was greeted with a knock at the door b the staff who were very friendly don’t get me wrong about how I have to pack up all my stuff and leave because another customer has come in who would better suit the room which I understand priorities and all that but the rooms shouldn’t have been muddled up like that. I had to pick up all my now unpacked stuff and move it along down the corridooor which I think is just very unprofessional. To further add to this the door to my room wouldn’t shut fully meaning privacy was limited, you needed to really yank at the door in order to make sure it shuts. This is a very limiting review there was more stuff

Good for the money during Fringe”
First, let’s be honest this is a student residence run by students, not a “casual” hotel. That being said staff was kind and helpful resolving any incident, room was pretty clean, bed was a bit small for a couple, and was lacking anything to hang a towel. Location is roughly 12-15 mins from most center attractions and after a few drinks a walk is welcomed. Good for the money.
