    Relaxed, friendly, good value for the money we paid, highly recommended for big groups. Breakfast was lovely and the staff go out of their way to help you

    No lift!!! And we were on the top floor, but it wouldn't put me off staying there again and one of the girls asked if we needed help with our luggage

    I enjoyed the hotel's position, the room was clean and the breakfast was good

    Unfortunately, the room is not supposed to be serviced every day unless customers specifically ask for it! Nobody gave me any info about that either when I booked or when I checked in and I think this is quite unfair for £80 a night hotel!

    Good

    Staff helpful and friendly - we had a problem with water pressure in our shower and this was dealt with straight away. Australian girl, called Dee, especially friendly and efficient. Relaxed atmosphere. Good location for Book festival, modern art art gallery and water of Leith walk (all of which we sampled).

    Room very small and lacking in storage - nowhere to put shower products or hang towels. Seemed a bit pricey for its size - festival rates I assume. Room could have done with a bit more 'deep cleaning' E.G. skirting boards dusty as were drawers inside wardrobe and behind bed. More healthy options for breakfast would have been good E.G. muesli, yoghurt, fruit but maybe I am in minority!

    Close to Prince Street. You don't spend even 10 minutes walking.

    There is no elevators. 4 or 5th floors with long staird steps. Also there is no reception of the hotel. Check in, out and anything else you have to treat at the "bar" of the hotel.
