Lovely big Apartment in perfect location

Stayed with friends for the weekend in apartment 2a and had a lovely time. Apartment is great with the only downside being the dated carpets. Lovely hamper waiting on arrival which is full and ideal start to a lovely stay. Less than 10 minutes walk into centre so perfect location. Will definitely been returning in the near future. Highly recommended.

Expected better

Reasonable location to get to centre of city. However that's about it. The shower is poor had to run for over a minute to get warm and it being only an electric as opposed to a power shower very poor pressure of water. The mattress was way too soft I weigh about 10.5 stone and I sank into it so definitely no good if you need a firm to hard bed. Other than that the room was adequate for the 2 nights we stayed.

I booked it for elderly relatives aged 82 & 75

Pros: The people at reception were nice.
Cons: The size of the room . For what I paid it needed more space. It's supply and demand of Edinburgh at festival time.
Location: What is classed as 'nearby'? Immediately nearby there was little, a few restaurants and a train station. Not far away was Edinburgh's city centre.
I only booked it, I only glimpsed it when I took their luggage downstairs to the room. It was in the basement in a tiny labyrinth of corridors. Everything seemed adequate except the size which was tiny. Not what was shown in pictures of the hotel's rooms on-line. I might recommend the hotel if the room was more spacious.

Hyvien kulkuyhteyksien varrella.

Pros: Täytti odotukset!
Location: Kävelymatka ostoskadulle. Nähtävyydet kohtuullisen kävelymatkan päässä. Pubeja ja ravintoloita lähistöllä. Hyvät kulkuyhteydet.
Kylmän sään takia takia jouduimme vaihtaan huonetta. Vaihto sujui lämpimään huoneeseen sujuvasti.

Perushotelli ei liian kaukana mistään

Pros: Jotain perusbrittiä: kokolattiamatot ja nuhjuisuus.
Cons: Koko talo remonttiin!
Location: Ydinkeskusta on vartin reippaan kävelyn päässä ja ratikkapysäkkikin on lähellä. Hotellin lähellä on pari pikkukauppaa (ruoka, juoma) eikä mitään öistä
Huone oli ihan siisti, mutta kylppärissä hajulukko oli pettänyt eikä suihkukaan toiminut: Suihkun säätö oli epäkunnossa ja aluksi kutsuin remonttimiehen apuun. Lopulta otin kylmiä suihkuja. Ehkäpä näistä syistä hotelli oli tarjouslistalla.

Kiva hotelli

Mukava ja siisti hotelli hyvien kulkuyhteyksien varrella. Lyhyet etäisyydet kävellä ja tutustua kaupunkiin. Huone ok, pehmeät sängyt, lämmitys (marraskuu) ja ilmainen Wifi toimii. Henkilökunnalle ruusuja positiivisesta ja avuliaasta asenteesta sekä hyvistä neuvoista.

Hotel an zentraler Lage

Das Hotel ist ca. eine Minute von der Haltestelle Haymarket entfernt, bei dieser haltet das Tram und diverse Busse, unter anderem der Direktbus zum Airport. Für zur Princess Street braucht man zu Fuss ca. 15Min. und weitere 15 Min. bis zum Edinburgh Castle, also alles ziemlich Zentral. Unser Zimmer war sauber und das Badezimmer riesig. Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass es zur Strasse raus etwas laut ist und auch die Hellhörigkeit in den Zimmern kann störend sein. Für ein paar Tage Sightseeing aber definitiv ausreichend.
