Positive Reviews

On the Spot

Situated in the centre of the city, you’ll find yourself able to take in exciting historic attractions like Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, Holyrood Park and Princes Street Gardens, as well as a number of local pubs and restaurants near the hotel.

Bang for Your Buck

Offering comfortable rooms, clean, modern facilities and a convenient location, you might be most impressed by how reasonable the rates of all the services and amenities are when the bill arrives. With a warm, friendly staff that is both helpful and considerate, this luxury destination is one which more than delivers a great value for its price.

Weekend Getaways, for Couples, Singles or Friends

Thanks to where it sits and the restaurants, stores, and sights immediately surrounding it, this hotel has something of a reputation as an optimal place for a quick weekend trip Cosy and quietly tucked within Edinburgh’s central hub, you can pack lightly and take in the city while escaping from the busyness of the work week with your spouse or significant other, friend(s) or all on your own.

Negative Reviews

No Place to Chill Out

In spite of being trendy and cutting edge, the hotel’s lack of air-conditioned rooms and windows which do not open fully can make sleeping a little stuffy on warmer nights, which is definitely a drawback in the summer months.

No Way to Turn the Volume Down

What the location gives, the location takes away Being in the heart of Edinburgh means that street noise is a year-round issue you’ll have to contend with, not the least of which are the twelve festivals which last roughly eight months out of the year.

Paying to Park

An undercutting aspect is the lack of complimentary valet service or free parking services Having to pay for private parking on top of one’s hotel bill and travel expenses might not sit well if you’re comparing staying here to places which offer such accommodations.
