Pros: I really like the creative decoration in this place, I like the colors and the arts decorating the place makes a very good warm vibe in.
Location: one step to edinburgh castle I spent there almost one day; nice resturants around, and the streets very welcome for tourist ,great shops!
I had one night before my flight back to Dublin 24-25/04, the place was lovely ; the stuff was super nice and welcome. the rooms is nice and have private locker in the room, the beds are comfortable and there are no problem with hot water at the showers. for sure i will visit this place again at my next trip to scotland:)
