Ideal location

Pros: The hotel staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was modern, spacious and clean, which was all very much appreciated.
Cons:
Having only a couple of days to explore Edinburgh, this hotel was the most ideal location for our trip. It is only a few minutes walk to the Royal Mile, shopping streets, Edinburgh's Waverley train station and Waverley Bridge where most tour buses start/pick up from. There are also many great restaurants and pubs conveniently nearby. The hotel staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The room we stayed in was modern, spacious and clean and had a wonderful view of Edinburgh city. I cannot fault this hotel, it was value for money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Nice and close to the station and the royal mile.

Pros: It's central location and the welcoming staff.
Cons: Maybe someone to greet you when you come for breakfast to tell you what is on offer. It was very busy when we came so maybe there normally is.
Location: Easy to get to the royal mile and Edinburgh castle as well as many other sights around down towards the station.
Hotel staff were excellent and very friendly and welcoming.
