      hotel staff so nice.buses 25/12 in front door,10 min from center.bus N25 works all night and the stop is 30 seconds from hotel.really quiet and with good park in front of.prize is really good.

      breakfast until 8:30,so early.The pressur e of the shower is not ok,not a lot of water.

      Only used the hotel for one night for a theatre trip to Edinburgh - this was a good location and sufficient for our needs

    • Older travelers

      The new managers were very friendly and helpful: the rooms clean and the continental breakfast plentiful.

      The hotel is in serious need of refurbishment; the rooms are tiny, the decor and soft furnishings dated and the beds uncomfortable. Victorian rooms have been sub-divided with paper-thin walls and the en-suite facilities are very limited.

      There were a lot of bedbags in our room. This was awful.

      Excellent location - public transport readily available for travelling all over the city with direct connection with Murreyfield stadium. Surroundings were very plesant as it is located opposite Leith Links park.

      On a good bus route into city centre. Opposite an extensive park area. Safe to walk around the area and close to good restaurants/pubs.Radiator came on in morning and at night. Kettle and some tea bags, and coffee in room. Free Wi-Fi connection. Managers friendly and helpful.

      Advertised itself as `luxury on a budget' but nothing luxurious about it. No under-blanket/ matress protector on bed. Bed and other furniture cheap and nasty and uncomfortable. Very sparsely furnished, small room. I paid for a double room but once I was there, only received single towel, etc. Only small bar of soap provided...no shampoo etc. Shower curtain very smelly and needed replacing. The bedding and facilities were on a par with, or below, the hostels I stayed in Italy and France. I had to pay £5 to leave 2 small bags there for 3 hours after check out. I've never had to pay to leave my bags in any other accommodation in 8 weeks of staying in hostels, boutique luxury hotels, hotels or b & B's throughout Europe and uk. This couldn't be classed `luxury' or `hotel'. Just very basic, and old hostel style accommodation. And certainly not value for money. Flet the owners were simply ripping guests off.

      Nice staff and quiet location

      Room floor wasn't too clean, toilet tiny and doors/walls pretty thin, so neighbours can hear what you're up to...

      The staff was really friendly

      The rooms are really close to each other so you can hear everything

      Very friendly and helpful staff. Bus stops are just outside front door or short walk,Handy for city centre.

      The staff were very helpful and friendly. They had only been there for two weeks and already were in the process of making improvements.

      The room was a bit small and there was only one pillow on the bed - however a second one was happily provided when asked for.

    • Single

      The staff was helpful and friendly.

      The internet connection was very poor on the second floor and no lift facility to carry luggages.

      The staff

      Quality of the rooms and the bathroom facilities. The walks between the rooms are too thin.

    • Couple
      9.2

      Like it's written on the sign outside the hotel: "luxury with economy". It really was. Breakfast was amazing, the buses to city centre stopped right outside the hotel every 15 mins, the staff were kind and helpful, the beds were comfortable.

      There really isn't much negative things about the hotel! But some things could be improved.... It took a long time for warm water to come, you had to turn the sink and shower to the warmest and wait a few minutes. The window (in our room) wasn't tight. Cold air leaked in and the sound from traffic was quite high time to time.
