Very good 8.2 From 76 reviews

Good 6.0
Room was as in pic except for the tropical temp!
Room was beautiful it was so hot we couldn’t sleep all night. Sunday morning checkout was very early at 11am, contacted the reception next morning to say that the room was unbearably hot and could we have an extension on the check out and were told he’d but it would cost £30. Very disappointing as the concept of the hotel room is unique in Edinburgh but room is very small and temperature control made it unbearable.

Decadence and luxury
Beautiful room and felt incredibly luxurious. Staff were super friendly and helpful which was lovely. Cocktails and breakfast were also top notch. The VIP package was epic and well worth it.
Kat, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
Very nice, but a little too warm for me
Room is really quirky and well decorated, the room is a little on the small side, however as I had read the description before hand I was expecting it so it wasn’t an issue. The biggest issue I had with my stay was the temperature of the room, there are no windows or air conditioning, it meant the room was very hot even in December, so I didn’t have the most comfortable nights sleep. I’m not sure there is any way to get the room to be cooler short of keeping your actual hotel room door open, so if this would bother you I wouldn’t recommend it, however if that isn’t an issue for you then I would recommend it. Customer service was top drawer as well, the two times I requested something it was brought up to my room immediately. One of those occasions was for a fan to try and cool the room, although it unfortunately made no difference. Hotel location is also excellent, right in the centre and only a short walk from all the main central attractions.

Fab rooms and very well presented. Staff really helpful and added to overall experience. Only down side was that the room was just too hot even with the fan on full.

Funky and groovy hotel. Loads of personality.
Really groovy hotel. Love the design and the whole concept. Rooms are just a tiny bit too small even for one person.

Fair 4.0
Small dusty cold room
The staff was polite and courteous however the room (101) was extremely cold when I asked about the heating I was told she would fix it and 5 min later she was back with a little heater for the room ! the door to the room did not close correctly and need a good hard push to make it secure. The term there’s not enough room to swing a cat really is true as it’s extremely cramped for 2 people. It was very dusty and the towels we used on the first night were folded and put back on the shelf instead of fresh towels. 4/10

A must for a romantic break
Really impressed. The staff were superb as were the cocktails. We upgraded for our second night and stayed in the suite. The roll top bath was awesome. The classic room on the first night was lovely too. Great location also and good value for money.
