Newest first
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Quirky but clean and modern room. Great location. Helpful staff. Family room quite large by UK standards!
Cons:A little pricey (but everything costs more during the Fringe!), dining arrangements at the pub next door so dining options limited (but lots of cafes and pubs around Grassmarket). Lots of stairs (lifts only get you so far) so pack light if possible.
6.2 Okay
Pros:The fun, funky vibe and central location were what attracted me to this hotel initially. However, there is a pub on the ground floor and our room was on the first floor directly over the bar where live music was played well into the night. When I requested a room change, they were fully booked but said I could change rooms the following day. Unfortunately, we weren't informed of the room change procedure and the room promised to us on the second night was given to someone else. Very disappointing. The hotel staff should be better trained to fully inform guests of room change policy. Also, guests should be warned at check-in that their room is over a pub that plays live music on Friday nights and offer them ear plugs in advance before they realize they can't sleep. The management did offer a gesture of compensation but really, had I been informed and been offered ear plugs on arrival, I would have actually enjoyed my stay. Other comments on the room: the sheets were clean and the bathroom also seemed clean but there were tons of dirty marks on the walls and dirty windowsills, which is not nice to see at hotel at this price point.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The staff was extremely friendly, with the location close to eateries for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night nightcaps. The free WiFi was excellent with easy connectivity. I was visiting for the Fringe Festival and International Book Fair. The hotel was a perfect location. There is a bit of walking to visit Edinburgh, but I left feeling quite healthy which is a good thing!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:My teenage son and I stayed during Fringe and were delighted by the modern (steel and wood) look and youthful (comic book) appeal. The decor says "fun"...the room is simple and comfortable.. the towels are big and fluffy...the beds are firm and "fresh-looking"...the bathroom rain shower was heavenly. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Don't read old reviews.
Cons:Don't book here if you need a lot of room, stuffy luxury or old-fashioned amenities. We couldn't figure out the TV, but who needs that anyway!
