Stayed at the apex Grassmarket on Friday the 3rd of January. Car park behind the hotel is good value at £12 per night and the location is great. I had booked a castle view room but was given a standard room on arrive, which was quickly changed. The view was stunning, only down side to that was the noise at night with people passing in the street shouting and singing, I was woken up by that at 3am and then again at 7.30am with people outside my room door talking about towels. So overall I didn’t get a great sleep. I picked the hotel because it was an ebookers VIP hotel and I am a platinum member, but I was very disappointed when this wasn’t mentioned on arrival and inside my room keys I found 2 free tea or coffee vouchers which I’m guessing must have been my VIP benefit, which is very poor. Overall the hotel is nice and the location is great, so I would return, just don’t expect great VIP benefits.

Thank you for taking your time to leave your feedback. I am sorry you had a few problems during your stay with us, however I am happy to read that our reception team were able to resolve your issue regarding the room type very quickly and you loved the castle view from your second room. All Expedia VIP members get complementary tea or coffee vouchers and an upgrade if available on the day. I am sorry if this did not meet your expectations. I am happy to see that despite the issues you encountered you would happily book with us again. Kind Regards Verity Front Office Supervisor

Good for a family trip

Pros: The staff were very attentive. The hotel was in a very central location.
Cons: The noise that could be heard from the street could be heard in our first floor room all night. Maybe they shouldn't place families so close to the pub/bar goers.
Location: Edinburgh castle can be seen from most rooms. The zoo is only 15 minute drive away, and the royal mile also has loads of street performances and shops

Great trip

Lovely hotel and staff with a wonderful view of the castle. In a great spot close to pubs and clubs, and walking distance from Prince's street

Friendly and attentive staff

We stayed for 2 nights here. On arrival we were greeted by the smiling reception staff and had an interesting conversation with the Spanish member of staff concerned. So much better than the usual formulaic corporate-speak. Later we had a personalised service from the bar supervisor who was fully engaged with our requirements - offering helpful additional information. And finally at check out the staff were very helpful too. All in all, a very distinctive service. And the room was warm and comfortable. We will be back.
