Very comfy stay!
Very comfortable stay. Small rooms but large and very comfortable bed. You dont need a huge room anyway. Shower was great. Very modern and clean. Breakfast lovely. I only had cold breakfast but plenty of choice including fresh berries, melon etc. Friendly staff. Close to Royal Mile, Holyrood etc.

Great room. Poor reception
Great hotel. Nice room. But reception was very dated and student looking it would have been nicer to have the reception in the ground floor of the building.

Not really a hotel
Its more a block of rooms that a hotel! Its so so hard to find, we were right next to it and didnt even realise and walked off! The reception is a different building and also hidden and feels like your in a car rental place rather than a hotel reception! Theres no bar, restaurant and theres no lift! There was a fire alarm when we were there because someone used the hairdryer in the room! However the room was nice and comfy although small, too hot and you could hear everything! Breakfast was included but we didnt bother!

Theatre Staycation
My husband and I were looking for a night away to match up with Theatre tickets received at Xmas from our family. KM Central suited us fine for our stay, and the Hotel did not disappoint, with Room of adequate size and lovely and clean Bathroom. Only reservation from my point of view was the window was particularly small, and as the Bed was right up against the Window wall, it didn't leave us much scope for ventilation. At approx. 6am on Sunday morning we were rudely awoken by a delivery truck loading something at a loading bay - not what we signed up for and maybe worthwhile mentioning this when checking in. Breakfast was amazing and outstripped our expectations - good value for Monday.

University Offer Day
Great location for a University visit. Beds were comfortable- room very warm with heating off and window open. Both mornings woken at 6.30 by refuse and lorries reversing. Would look for a quieter location next time
