    KM class

    When we arrived we thought we were staying with the students (a 50’s couple). We were pleasantly surprised. A nice modern room lots of usb points and plenty of tea and coffee. Great shower too.

    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.

  • 4.0.Fair

    KM Central is clean and comfy, very central and reasonably priced. Although I was generally satisfied during my stay, I was very disappointed with a couple of issues that made things a bit miserable. KM Central is run by the University of Edinburgh and is located in a popular student accommodation area. As such, the area is very noisy throughout the night and early hours of the morning - I was still being disturbed by street noise after 4am. Had the university invested in better soundproofed windows, I might have slept more than a few hours during my stay - as it was, a Saturday night in a busy student area of Edinburgh will make sure guests have, at best, a troubled night's sleep. The second, again, noise! This time though it was the fact that an alarm was triggered at 2.30 am in a building overseen by the same reception area as KM Central. The next morning a receptionist explained that the alarm should not have gone off in KM Central, because the source - a false alarm - was located in a different building, not even connected to KM Central. Despite the fact that many of the hotels patrons, my wife and I included, evacuated into the cold rainy street, no one from reception came to say we could return to our rooms, which, given the cold, wet, early morning conditions, would have been appreciated. I probably would not chose to stay here again - my wife and I returned home exhausted, with no apology or compensation offered by the hotel!
