        Comfortable as long as you don't want a lie-in.”
        I was visiting my daughter who has just started at the University of Edinburgh. I was awoken each morning by the voices of the staff from 6.30am onwards which I took as a sign that they wanted me up and out. It was the weekend and I was on holiday so I didn't want to be rushed. That was disappointing.

        Quaint hotel with everything you need”
        This was a nice place in a very quiet neighborhood it was a bit of a walk (10 minutes to Sainsbury’s or cafes) and over 20 minutes to Waverly Station or the Royal Mile. That said, the exercise was good, the staff efficient and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. My room was quite large for a single and the ensuite bath was quite new and nice as well

        Clean, friendly and basic I prefer a bath though not a shower but really good bed and spacious room.”
        No bath, breakfast served with okd old cutlery was a bit off putting and very basic continental breakfast BUT still goid value and added bonus of their own parking spaces even though it did cost £20 a day but thats a bargain in Edinburgh - but staff very friendly, helpful and relaxed woyld defo consider it again if going to that end if Edinburgh.

        Cute, charming, but a little low on services and facilities”
        Thistle is a charming old hotel, reasonably well appointed and within walking distance of a lot of good stuff. However, I noticed they skipped cleaning my room on one of the 3 days that I was there - not a big deal since I'm not that messy but still, not something that should have been missed. They have no facilities whatsoever, apart from a breakfast restaurant that seemed a little overpriced for what it offered.

        I had been across town at the Travelodge for 3 nights...it was clean,the bed was great but...then I moved over to the Thistle. Classy,elegant,much better location and it was almost $20 less per night. I stayed in Room #1...downstairs...a bit cold but other than that...LOVED IT!!! I'll stay again:-)

        A severe disconnect between Agoda and Thistle....Parking not included 15 Pounds per night extra. Breakfast a joke. or 7 pounds extra..And could not check out without paying four nights fee for one night of second rate misery. Never again Thistle and never again Agoda.

        Guys at the hotel were really kind and helpful. The hotel is beautiful and in a remarkable location, but it doesn´t have elevator, and you can have accesibility problems when travelling with a stroller, young children or elders.

        Ubicación, camareros del restaurante
        Estuve alojado una noche en la habitación número 3. Es una habitación ubicada en el sótano. Habitación antigua y destartalada. La recepción está justo encima y por lo tanto a partir de las 7:00 se oyen todos los ruidos. la iluminación del baño insuficiente y el ventilador del mismo ruidoso. La ventana no cerraba bien y el secador estaba ubicado en un mueble viejo cuyos cajones no se podían abrir. Es una habitación que no se puede poner a alquilar. Inadmisible. Destacar la atención de los camareros en el desayuno, muy atentos y serviciales.
