Cheap Hotel in Cheap Conditions”
The hotel is just around less than 3 mins walk away from Haymarket Station, which is quite convenient for travelers who expect to locate a great lodging spot in Edinburgh centre. That this hotel doesn't provide breakfast, however, already decreased half its value. While I stayed in this hotel, to my great dismay, the I was assigned to seemed totally unattended for. The wood on floor looked shamble and the track on which the curtain moved seemed even more abysmal by any standard. I sincerely advise the hotel staff that you should do some refurbishment before you go on business with this condition.

Ok but room needs a make over.”
Good location. Handy for tram to the airport. Nice comfy bed and clean bedding. Bathroom bit difficult to negotiate but plenty hot water from shower. Not happy about there being no way of securing door from 8nsidr. A bit disconcerting that the yale lock was hanging off the door. I really did not feel safe. Had to move the chest if drawers over to block the door in case of intruders. Even a door chain would have been good.

Fantastic stay in the windsor suite”
We stayed for one night in the fabulous windsor suite. It was spotless and very comfortable. Very central and 2 minutes away from haymarket station. The only thing I would say is ypu may need earplugs as it is on a main road.

Great location, but maybe too great?!”
Surprised by the space and convenient location of the Guards Hotel. The room was comfortable with large windows. Sound proofing is not a strong point if you're light sleeper. Fortunately, I was shattered so did manage to get some shut-eye, but external sound resistance was poor. I'd go back for a night but anything longer would require earmuffs. Improvements I'd like to see include more efficient window dressing to shut out the light from long summer nights and, of course, a little more soundproofing.

Worst bed ever”
I sat on the bed and was immediately swallowed into the middle of it. It was like it was a water bed except it wasn't. The shower also had zero water pressure.

Very simple and basic”
If you're after just basic accommodation to crash at night then this is the place. Otherwise, the carpet at the entrance smelled as soon as I entered then the smell continued into my room. The room I was given did not have a window so I had to keep the exhaust running all the time. Also during check-in the receptionist was in a rush, which I didn't like.

Great Place!”
This was perfect for what we were looking for! It was a quick 15 min walk into Edinburgh's old town and even closer to the new town. Massive room, friendly staff, and good price - couldn't have asked for better!
