Staff very nice and helpful. Reception/bar area looked ok.

Extremely small rooms, lifeless and stale looking. Fake wood beam stickers peeling. Scuffed walls, bleach smell. Disliked so much I cancelled booking and left.

- Friendliness of the staff - Breakfast variety good - nearby town center - optical space design

1. Room was much to warm // solution at the explanation of the room condition was not working. Change of the room wasn't possible. 2. Second day it was too crowdy at the breakfast room // place at drinking area inconvenient (too less place) and also too less places for sitting. 3. Before my window was a small lane to a restaurant and in the late evening too loud there. 4. Choice of programms at television very small (e.g. German programm)

I asked the clerk at the frontdesk where to find a mailbox for my 2 postcards. He took the cards and wanted to take care of them. They never arrived!

The hotel is centrally placed, close to the station and a short walk from the Royal Mile.

The aesthetic of the hotel is nice and it is well located.

I was in town for business and the hotel is not set up for this. The table in the room was far too small to do any work on. It was largely taken up with the kettle. The chair was a backless stool. There were only 2 plug sockets in my room, neither of which was anywhere near the bed. This made it difficult to charge my phone and laptop. I had to plug out the kettle to do so.

Location! Great location for one preferring to walk to most of the sites rather than use taxis. Rooms clean, uncluttered. Would have been a great hotel, had we chosen a room that cost a little more.

Room was an inside type room...could not get it cool enough for comfortable sleep. With window open, noise level of people in building just outside the window was loud well into midnight. No idea what type of building it was, all I could see through their windows were stairways and halls. But floors are not carpeted and people using them sounded like they were directly outside our window.
