    Great few days in Edinburgh

    Really enjoyed our stay, just a couple of comments: We stayed 4 nights so the 1 ft long clothes rail was not big enough. Why not have some free standing ones available? There should be a plug near enough to the mirror so curling tongues etc can be used.

    Lovely check in, nice big rooms. Only downside was the building and elevators - I had a big bag. But that’s just Edinburgh buildings!

    Great stay, convenient location.

    We stayed here due to it's convenient location from the tram stop (2 min walk up the road) and its location to all Edinburgh has to offer. We've stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before & the set up is standard. The room has all you need for a couple of nights & is serviced on a daily basis. Our room overlooked the main road but I have to say that due to the internal secondary glazing, you couldn't hear a thing (apart from the odd emergency services siren every now & again), it had air-conditioning, hairdryer, iron & ironing board. The staff were efficient & friendly. The buffet breakfast was plentiful & the waiting staff were always there to refresh constantly. Disposable gloves are provided for you to use (not very eco friendly but necessary), there was the usual hot breakfast - bacon, scrambled eggs, beans & sausages. Toast, croissants, mini muffins as well as cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, tea/ coffee & juice. I' would say that the mattresses on the bed could possibly be changed as I felt it was too springy, every time my husband moved in bed I was bounced about, so maybe they need to opt for something more on the lines of a memory foam type.
