Pretty nice for not being very expensive

The room was a little small and a tight fit but it was a nice room. The location was nice because it was within walking distance of all the main attractions.

A wonderful hotel!

The Piries Hotel was a beautiful, clean hotel in a gorgeous old building in a very central area of Edinburgh, a five-minute walk to Haymarket station with 24-hour convenience stores and restaurants and pubs all around it. It had every modern day amenity you could want, a restaurant, very cheap internet access, and a very accomodating staff. I have a family of four with two very young children and our room was extremely large and roomy, a very welcome break from the smaller rooms we've had to stay in throughout Europe! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Edinburgh!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The restaurants in the area are beautiful and look amazing, but something we didn't know before it was too late was that after 8pm children are not allowed to set foot in any restaurant with a bar in Edinburgh. There are plenty of "Child-Friendly" restaurants available though that are open later (for those with children on a different time zone schedule), just look for the "Child-Friendly" sticker by the entrace door or ask a member of staff.

Great Price and Location

The staff was friendly and helpful. We had an extra living room but the bath was in the hallway. The beds were comfortable. You can't beat the location near buses and Haymarket train station. Perhaps the lighting in the room could have been better.

Great experience!

The hotel was centrally located and everyone who worked there was really nice and helpful. The room was a good size and was cleaned daily. The trip was a lot of fun, and the only complaint I had was the lack of a top sheet on the bed because the comforter didn't look very new.
