A good walk from anywhere

Pros: The bed was comfy
Cons: Although the breakfast was nicely cooked it wasn't very substantial
Location: not the best location
Room needs gutting and totally decorating, very dated. tiny shower room in need of gutting and a new suite tiles were disgusting, toilet pushed in a corner and awkward to sit on unless you are an Oompa Loompa large gap under main room door, could hear everything going on outside the room and breakfast prep in the morning....Staff were very nice though

Nice budgethotel near bu the citycenter

Pros: Location, price, breakfast
Location: Near by city central, 500 meters walk. Near Calton Hill is quite nice walk and offers towns best landscapes
Quite nice little hotel for a traveller by himself. Didn't cost that much, reasonably good breakfast, friendy staff.

Hotellissa ei ollut muuta hyvää kuin sijainti. Tosi kulunut, suihku epäsiisti. Siivoamisessa toivottavaa. Aamiainen niukka, mutta ihan kelvollinen. Huone piti maksaa käteisellä ja luvattiin laittaa kuitti sähköpostiin. Ei tullut. Viimeisen päivän aamuna pyysin kuittia ja sain sen käsinkirjoitettuna.
