Lovely room, nice n clean, happy staff (yassou Olympia!) Nice view if you're at the front of the hotel. Great for the zoo, i expect the busses would be fine from Corstorphine rd if you googled the timetables. Not wonderfully cheap, but for a good room quite ok (this is edinburgh after all!). The wee guesthouse room i booked previously was only £15 less

Holiday inn near zoo

Pros: Great location and main area were really comfortable. Good leisure facilities and welcoming of children
Cons: Refurbishing fifth floor rooms. Adequate waiting staff capacity.
Location: Next door to the zoo and great bus links to the city centre.
This was a great hotel for location. The main area were comfortable and modern. This has a great pool and leisure facilities. The room itself was in need of redecoration it was just a bit tired, the room we stayed in is nothing like the photos on the website so that was a little dissapointing. There was a complete lack of available waiting staff so ordering food and drinks in the bar and lounge was very difficult we had to wait almost an hour for desserts.
