Pleasant one night stay, on the down side thin walls could hear neighbours in rooms and corridors albeit would book again due to the fab location and helpful friendly staff and the charge for the room being the right price.

My only concern was the lack of hand rails in the bath when getting out,of the shower, no slip mats in the bath while in the shower, for older guests it could be a problem?

            Perfect view!”
            We were given a room that looked up to the castle. It was more than perfect as we were able to lie in our beds and watch the fireworks from the castle esplanade. The location is in a busy street in the Grassmarket so it was noisy with traffic and the booths set up down below but the view more than made up for it. It’s a great clean facility and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

            Our room is facing directly the Edinburg castle and needless to say is beautiful and we can watch fireworks over the castle from our room! With child of age 13 we have booked a room with extra bed and setup service was quick and immediate upon our check in. (We waited hours for other hotels). Staffs are very friendly and efficient. Very good attention to our requests. Location is perfect very convenient to the castle just opposite and main shopping and dinning area. Will definitely come again next time !

            Huge rooms and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in including my own. Very clean and well appointed. Staff excellent. It's a little expensive to stay very often so unfortunately back to the travelodge until the next special occasion. Food was great but no gluten and dairy free dessert. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

            Modern hotel. Well equipped room with comfortable beds. Get a room facing the castle! We stayed in the Family Room and it was well worth it. Service was good too, beware though there's stairs in the lobby and no ramp for your luggage. If the bellboy is not available then prepare to drag your luggage up the stairs to get to check in counter and then the elevators. breakfast I heard is not so good so I am glad we skipped that. lots of bars across the street which can be lively in the evening. If your windows are open you will hear them clearly. If you shut the window you'll be okay.

            great little hotel”
            Didn't know what to expect at first, just chose the hotel based on all the reviews. was quite happy to find that the reviews got it right. the hotel is perfectly situated. the rooms are well-equipped and comfortable. We booked a family room with castle views. Don't worry, the street noise cannot be heard if the windows are closed. When you open them, it is a different story, the street is very lively, especially on the weekends and evenings where the pub goers are jolly and loud. Not an issue for us at all. I recommend Room 2005.

            Rooms are badly in need of renovation. Windows are poorly insulated, heating minimal, no mechanical ventilation in rooms or bathrooms. Bathrooms are better having been recently renovated but lighting is completely inadequate. Breakfast can be had for 30% of the cost at Graze on the square but the view from the 5th floor dining room is spectacular.

            Below average. Hotel was extremely overpriced for what you got. Staff in the breakfast area were rude, service was slow and disorganized (we waited in line for 20 minutes when there were tons of empty tables) and breakfast was poor. Hotel rooms were tiny and pillows had stains on them.

            The view allows me to look at the beautiful Edinburgh castle. The breakfast was nice. It is situated at the middle of old time that made accessable to all I want to see as a visitor with a short time.
            The room was comfortable with friendly staffs. I couldn't help thinking that I should have stay on for a few more days in such beautiful city.
