Dear Anonymous, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us due to the room you were allocated. Unfortunately these rooms are not appreciated by some due to the fact you are in the basement but are essential due to the accessible bathroom and lower level. We have taken your review on board and are looking in to ways to warn guests of the rooms position before booking. If you do decide to stay with us in the future please make us aware of this stay and we will have you in a room with a view. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and taking the time to write the review. Kind Regards

Overrated and disappointing experience

Poor service. Ghastly room in the basement without air conditioning. No water in the room. No ownership of the booking or responsiveness to our request for twin beds. Blamed the intermediary for everything. Breakfast is very average. Just stood and watched me struggle with lots of luggage.

Hôtel dans un quartier calme

Hôtel pas très loin du centre ville ( 20 minutes environ de marche) situé dans un quartier calme. La journée vous pouvez vous dépenser, le soir vous pouvez dormir tranquillement. Pas un bruit ne viendra perturber votre sommeil. Le lendemain matin vous attendra un copieux petit-déjeuner ! Vraiment l'expérience à été plus que réussie. Nous comptons retourner à Édimbourg. Et nous ferons tout pour séjourner à nouveau dans cet hôtel.
