            Best boutique hotel ever!”

            First, the location! This charming hotel used to be a bank and is located on the Royal Mile. It is central to shopping, pubs, and countless cultural sites including Edinburgh Castle. Just the most absolutely perfect location. Rooms are gorgeous - contemporary decorations with all the amenities necessary for a great stay. One caveat, there is no lift to get up to the rooms. No worries, the slim gentleman who checked me in was willing and able to lift 23 kilos of luggage up three flights of stairs without stopping to catch his breath. Rooms sit above a pub which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was superb. Service was just as good. Really good live bands for dinner in the evenings. Accommodating staff. Thoroughly enjoyable hotel.

            Staff, Staff, Staff. That the bedrooms, evening meals are in a class of their own. I sleep light & for the two nights had no problems whatsoever. It’s weakness is breakfast. Eggs Benedict is the highlight. Teabags in cups do not work at this standard & they have teapots! Amazingly no porridge. Location is stunning. Every person who works here is happy & the banter among the staff ensures everyone has a good time. Mince pies in the room on arrival & if you book through the hotel a bottle of Prosecco with ice bucket. My criticism is minor. These folks look after you. One thing make sure you get a key

            Great location. Worst bed. ”

            The staff were friendly and the location was excellent, but the bed was so uncomfortable. It was two twins pushed together, hard as rock, with hard, flat pillows and scratchy heavy bed linens. For the amount of money we spent, I expected something a bit more luxurious or at least comfortable. It's also not good for children as they have live music in pub into the night.

Staff polite and attentive without being overbearing. Unpretentious venue and would stay again only next time will try for a room lower than the top floor as no lift and I'm not getting any younger !

            I cannot rave about this hotel enough. The location was perfect. Almost exactly in between Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh Castle, everything is walkable. The hotel room was beautiful, wonderfully modern and lavish. The bar/restaurant at the bottom of the hotel was great and reasonably priced. The room was also incredibly quiet, giving us the perfect place to recharge every night. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

            The bar downstairs can get a little busy which means less attention to you (the doors lock around midnight so I had to have the night porter let me in). But in general the staff was incredibly kind and professional. I'd definitely stop by again if I stay in Edinburgh.

            The hotel only has 9 rooms, 3 on each floor. Although the hotel is located at the centre of the city, surrounded by bars and restaurants, the soundproofing of the room excellent. We tried the breakfast served on the ground floor of the hotel. The taste of it and the service of its staff were awesome.

            Excellent accommodations. Rooms were well decorated, modern, and very clean. Heated bathroom floors, which I'm sure are very welcomed in the winter. Lovely bar and food choices downstairs. Make sure you change dates firstly through booking.com, if you originally booked through them. Confirm your changes directly with the hotel as well. Agoda did not transfer the changes and I was charged for both dates and not reimbursed.

            Great little hotel in the heart of Edinburgh. The restaurant/bar on the main floor is nice and clean with good food. Reception is a little confusing as it also serves as the register for the bar. Once we got that sorted the staff took great care of us through our entire stay. This is on a busy road and there is an unrelated bar that is open late (5am). So the patrons have a tendency to be boisterous when outside at 2am+.

            First time when we reach infront of this hotel, we can't recognize if this is d place that we gonna stay in coz the room was up of the bar. So anytime if u want to go up to your room u must crossing this bar..and there is no lift in this hotel..only stair. Our room was the last up..floor 4..going up is little bit tiring but still ok..little exercise it's good. The problem is when u must carry ur luggage lol but thanks god the owner help us with our luggage and even they gave us some chocolate cake..the breakfast was free but u only need to choose and they make for u so there is buffet style here. The location was perfecto.. Close to everything.. The train station n bus station also surrounding with all shops...
