Wonderful hotel! Lovely staff and clean rooms with everything you need (the bathroom particularly was very modern). Amazing location aswell and a view of the castle as you step outside!

Couldn't get a better location in Edinburgh if you want to be close to where everything is happening. Hotel itself is modestly nice with a personal touch. A few freebies which is always appreciated when traveling. Beds and bedding were great.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Pretty nice for the price. The location is especially great. Check-in was smooth and I found my room no problem. There was a system in place when I arrived that meant you'd use the elevator going up and the stairs going down, but the lift seemed to be broken after the first day. Not a massive problem but there's definitely not enough room to pass on the stairs, so be mindful of that. My main problem was the noise made by the air conditioning, which I understand may sound like a petty complaint, but as a Brit I'm not used to that clatter. I made the mistake of turning it off and coming back to a freezing cold room so I wouldn't recommend that. You can certainly appreciate that this hotel has been refurbished not too many years ago. The waterfall shower is a strong selling point and indeed very lovely. Though, I do doubt whether most customers would get any use out of the 30-pin iPod dock, and it seemed like my TV had been disconnected. Overall, not a bad stay, beats a hostel.

There isn’t an elevator to all levels
Unfortunately they didn’t say there wasn’t an elevator to all levels. They did advise me this was stated on Expedia and when I said I booked via Hotels.com they didn’t know what to say. My parents and my father struggled to get up and down the stairs and navigate the maze to even find the room! I am extremely annoyed and have screenshots showing this was not stated at all on this site and now I’m taking this further as it really put a toll on my father’s health. I am disappointed. I am seeking compensation as my father was so confused at one point and didn’t even find the room. I was so sad.
