This is always my choice of hotel when I visit Edinburgh. The staff are lovely, friendly and cannot do enough to help. Due to covid I hadn’t visited Edinburgh for almost 2 years and the lovely pleasant man on reception remembered me which really makes you feel valued

The staff were excellent friendly and could not do more to help. The room was small, tired. In need of updating. The location was extremely noisy from outside activity all through the night.

Ein älteres aber gemütliches Hotel an der Princess Street. Sauber und geräumiges Zimmer. Ideal für eine Städte Reise. Das Frühstück ist nicht üppig aber es hat soweit alles was man braucht. Nur der Kaffee könnte besser sein.

Die Lage ist sensationell und das Personal super freundlich. Die Einrichtung passt zum Gebäude, könnte aber mal erneuert werden.
