Positive Reviews

Wonderful Location.

This hotel is in the heart of the Old Town district of Edinburgh, and near to loads of restaurants and cafes. It's just a five-minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and right across from St. Giles Cathedral.

Friendly Staff.

The very accommodating staff will take the time to show you around your apartment and give you tips and tricks on how to make things work and where things are located.

Comfortable Apartments.

Apartments are modest, but comfortably furnished with well-equipped kitchens. Apartments are clean and spacious and offer a great value. Here's a tip: these are self-catering, so hit the grocery store when you get to town.

Negative Reviews

No Wi-Fi.

Guests say that Wi-Fi is advertised as available, but that it really isn't, which is unfortunate.

Hard to Navigate.

The building has lots of stairs and no lift, so be aware of this, especially if you or a loved one lacks mobility. You will find it hard to navigate.

A Bit Dated.

Some guests say this hotel is need of a refurbishment, as it feels a bit old with creaking floors and hard furniture. The décor is worn and feels run-down. With no air conditioning, this hotel will get quite warm on sunny days.
