The staff were extraordinarily helpful. I would recommend the hotel entirely on that basis. But the location is also fantastic (including very near the train station), and the rooms are cute, if slightly maddening.

Actually quite impressed

Location: Location was just a two minute walk to the royal mile and right in the middle of all the best old town Edinburgh has to offer.
We had stayed at this hotel three years ago when we last visited Edinburgh. The accommodations are a bit Spartan but very functional and practical. The room was clean and the bed for very comfortable for a hotel at this price point. The rest room was well stocked for our needs and the linens were also a higher quality than one would think for this level of hotel. The staff is very courtesy, helpful, considerate and professional. We will definitely consider staying here again and recommend to all that are with a nice stay for a bit less money.

Perfect location in Old Town

Pros: Location
Location: Perfect...can walk (climb) to all of the main sites.
Ideal location for those traveling by train...across the street from train station and at the edge of Old Town Edinburgh. Very nice facilities.
