Hello, Thank you for your kind response. Kind regards

Not even fit for students

Bed was horrible with springs easily felt through the thin mattress - the hard floor with a blanket was more comfortable. Noisy and hot - near train line so was unable to crack window and sleep without disruption. No floor or shower mats provided - very slippery when wet. Location near the palace is good but the walk under the train line leaves a lot to be desired.

Good option for overnight stay

Stayed overnight during festival. Close to Royal Mile and able to reach by foot from Waverley train station (or £4.50 cab ride). Helpful friendly staff. Clean room with ensuite and use of kitchenette. Was hot in room though. Good option for a short stay if just looking for somewhere to crash.
