I had a tiny single room that I loved because it had a huge window that looked out over the garden, and it opened! It would probably be too small for most but I slept great. I really didn't like the bathroom. It was not in my room, which I thought I had booked, but down the hall. It had a sliding door that didn't really close or lock, which freaked me out. It had a note on it asking other people not to use it, but I didn't feel comfortable leaving my stuff there and felt vulnerable since the door didn't lock. Staff was nice and it was clean. I would go back to another roo..

My room was clean and warm (no central heating but there was a decent sized heater which kept it warm enough and an electric heater in the bathroom). The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was basic but did the job. It's also located in a pleasant area and only a short walk from Waverley station and Princes Street. A great hotel at a reasonable price for a city, I'd recommend it to anyone on a budget.

The place was pretty good with a lovely welcome and treatment by the owners. The breakfasts were handmade everyday and very rich and tastefull. The room was not soo big but also cosy and warm (perfect for a young couple). We reccomend this place expecially to single traveler or young couple who want to see Edinburgh without spending too much and prefer a "familiar place" rather than a "common hotel".
