            We stayed there as my husband was taking part in the marathon and it was comfortable for him after the race.

          • Couple
            8.2

            Convienient location. Friendly staff.

            The bed could have been more confortable. Mattress was a bit lumpy. Breakfast was nice but having porridge on the menu would have been a great addition (with it being Scotland).

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            Excellent location close to everything (even the nightlife) and yet surprisingly quiet. Friendly staff, no nonsense modern hotel with all you need for a successful city trip.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Reception staff were very helpful. It was quiet inside the hotel at night.

            Cheap yoghurts at breakfast, but that's all.

          • Single
            7.8

            Good location near Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace. Comfortable, clean and quiet.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Modern up to date decor and a great shower. Continental breakfast was great. The hotel was close to the amenities/historical features.

            The first night the people above us were noisy and the room on the ground floor had no view. However they moved us to a nice room with a view on the first floor for the second night which was quieter.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The hotel is perfect for sightseeing; its right in the centre and you can reach nearly everything on foot in very short time. The hotel stuff is friendly and helpful.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Very good location for all attractions very quiet plus free breakfast

            Standard room lower than road public pathway beside could not leave window open

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Location, and with included breakfast

            No in-room safe , but no problem using safety deposit box at reception. No in-room refrigerator eg for milk , or water

          • Single
            6.6

            Did not feel the staff was as friendly and informative as the staff in Glasgow. They were out of the brochures for the City Sightseeing Tours. That was irritating. You'd think since the majority of the people staying in the hotel are tourists someone would be in charge of making sure they didn't run out of brochures. I had narrowed my choice between Jury's Inn & this hotel based on rate & location. Wish I had selected Jury's as their location was much better.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Being near to the Royal Mile made all the main attractions readily accessible with not too much walking involved.

            Breakfasts were very much the same each of the 4 days we were there. Surely, it wouldnt have been too much trouble to vary the 2 tinned fruits put out each morning, especially as grapefruit can not be eaten by people on some common medications. The sausages were uck! And the scrambled egg was dry. Otherwise breakfast was adequate.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Excellant location for the Royal Mile. Very friendly helpful staff. Had such a good evening in a local pub slept in and missed breakfast.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            we were temporarily transferred to another hotel. but was arranged for a more luxurious hotel. the room is clean and comfortable. wifi is fast.

            the location is more far than expected.

          • Single

            Everything was most efficient and convenient.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            It was clean, warm and comfortable

            The breakfast was only so so and the duvet on the bed was very thin
