    Awesome staff

    Awesome friendly reception staff. Super clean and comfortable hotel in a great location. The only downside was breakfast. It could be much better for the price and also there's lovely tables looking out the window but all guests were put down in the sunken basement like area.

    Great location Clean, comfortable with the finer touches

    Stayed just one night, the building felt a bit too warm for me but didnt stop me getting a good nights sleep. Good quality shower with Elimis shower gel, shampoo and moisteriser. Felt pampered and decided on the detox breakfast, out of character for me but very tasty. The car park is small and fills up early. I was lucky arrived mid afternoon so got a space £12 a night. Didnt try the pool or gym...no surprise there. Great location for all Edinburgh sites, restaurants and bars.

    Brilliant hotel

    The room was good with nice views. Hotel was clean and all staff are friendly. Also local to all areas off Edinburgh with only a 5-20 minute walk.

  • 6.0.Good

    Smart Hotel but needs improvement.

    Most excellent position but we paid for that privilege at £200 a night. There are 2 apex grassmarket hotels in the same road, there was no indication as to which one we was supposed to go to, we were lucky. Secondly there are steps to get up to reception no lift, no ramp, no porter. Staff very friendly and the room is beautiful BUT it was 18 degrees outside and the room was very hot. There is no air conditioning!!! All I can say is thank goodness it was no hotter outside! There was one balcony door which we had to get another key to open and sign a form to say you weren't going to jump out, once you had this open, you then had to suffer all the noise of the middle of Edinburgh! It wouldn't stay open either so we had to tie a dressing gown belt to the railings just to get some fresh air. The bed was big & spotlessly clean but extremely uncomfortable. The mattress was hard the topper which you could see, didn't quite cover all the mattress. All in all an uncomfortable mattress and hot and stuffy room did not lead to three nights of good sleep, and I can sleep anywhere! A Fabulous position and the hotel looks beautiful but honestly I wouldn't stay here again because I didn't have a good night's sleep. I think the least a hotel that charges £200 a a night should have, is air conditioning. We had breakfast here which was delicious but overall the hotel really disappointing for the price we paid. We had a lovely time in Edinburgh though!
