      Different from Agoda descriptions and pictures”
      Diagonally opposite M&S, tram and train stations. No free parking and paid parking was very limited. Agoda pictures do not reflect reality, in fact, quite the opposite. Free breakfast reasonable for its price (coffee, tea, fruits, bread, juice, cheese, ham, variety spreads) and regularly replenished. Small window, our room came with 2 sofa beds (as opposed to queens and singles) and a double located underground with bush view. Soft beds and one tiny toilet with used toiletries from previous guests.

      Very dark and noisy room. Breakfast is very basic. ”
      We were given a basement room even when booking the room I specifically asked for a room on the top floor. The entrance of the basement was very dirty and dark. I couldn't believe that could be an entrance for a hotel. There was no mobile network in the room. There were cups, kettle in the room But no tea bags or coffee. Breakfast was very basic. We literally got bread, jam, butter, tea and orange juice and couple of cereals. No eggs or yoghurt or pastry. I wish I knew what kind of breakfast they serve there, then I would've never booked a room in this hotel. Overall this hotel is a complete disappointment!

      Room was maybe a bit small for two persons and luggage, place was tidy and clean though there was an odd smell of curry (or something) in the entrance hall and stairway. Location is great and light breakfast was also very satisfying. Overall very good value for the money.

      I originally made an error when booking and had to book an extra night. When the loft room we were allocated turned out to be unsuitable due to my prosthetic hip, the staff (Catia) couldn’t be more helpful and immediately changed it for another that was perfect.

      city trip”
      We were here for a short stay, but really loved the accommodations. A thing to note is that if you don't want to, you will not have much contact with the staff. There is a "self check-in", meaning you get a code to open your key-box Breakfast is simple, but then again it has pretty much everything you need (except for hot dishes). You will get some white and brown bread, gluten-free slices, bagels, some sweet buns, ham, cheese, an assortment of jams/jellies/marmalade, nutella, honey, cornflakes, yoghurt, fruit, tea and coffee. Our room was nice and spacious. We had a large bed, a desk, sofa and small table. There was also a fridge (always welcome), kettle and microwave. The bathroom was on the small side, you can brush your teeth whilst sitting on the toilet and could do with a little freshen up. The location of the hotel is also definitely ok. You are a 10 minute walk away from princess street, and maybe 30 minutes from old town. Close to public transportation

      Not worth the money”
      We went during the peak August season, paid around $330-350 a night. The room is not cleaned every day, the cleaner has to be told to clean the room, but I noticed that sheets were never changed! We stayed there for 7 nights yucks! Had to ask for shampoo and body wash. Internet sucks too, it didn't work well, only one bar coverage. It didn't worth the money at all. The only plus point is that location is good, close to public transport and M&S just accross from the accommodation. Will I stay here again? Definitely not.

      Cosy little room over the garden”
      Fringe time in Edinburgh so prices are higher than normal but otherwise a warm and homely place to stay, very friendly and helpful staff. A small but very cosy little single bedded room overlooking the garden. I was very comfortable here - near Haymarket station and a pleasant 1/2 hour walk to the centre. Would definitely return for a repeat visit

      Very good”
      Firstly may I say that for accommodation in Edinburgh during August this was very reasonably priced. The building is clean and well thought out (effectively two terraced houses which have been converted). There is no reception but instead a keystore which you get the number for having called a number on the website. Make sure that you have a phone! I only had a single room on the top floor. It was tiny but just about functional. Breakfast was disappointing and in retrospect it would be easier to have room only and eat out. I only saw the odd cleaner in the morning so there wasn’t any real interaction with staff. It is well located and functional but that is it.

      Above average”
      The location is the only real positive about this hotel. You can walk to Princes Street in 20 mins or a short tram ride. Murrayfield is also close. The rest is Ok but for the price, you could find better. It is a "no reception" hotel this has obvious disadvantages and we were woken in the night by a group arriving loudly and having a long conversation with the owner by phone in the corridor. The room was a family room, but only because it had beds squeezed into it. It was very difficult for a family to move around. The breakfast room became crowded and although the was enough breakfast the quality was average. The most inconvenient aspect is the lack of parking. The nearest free parking is a 20-minute walk away.

      Looks nothing like the pictures on the websites. Broken and shabby furniture dirty carpet and loud noises in the night. We felt very unconfortable here, unfortunately the owners didn‘t reply to our emails. We left the place after two days even though we booked it for 4 days. Does not meet any european or us standard.

      We found out that the room condition is very different than the picture we see on Agoda. Such as: - the info stated we will be given 3 single bed but instead we got sofa bed - the info stated that we will have street view, instead we got basement with nothing to view - and all the photo in agoda profile is almost different that the real one We wrote an email to hotel side to ask for a solution, but there’s no reply at all. We supposed to get better hotel at the same price. So not worthed. This is the first time i wrote a bad review since i used Agoda to book hotels wherever i travelling to.
