2/10 Poor

Not looking to get Leagionnaires disease
do you like mold and high humidity basements with disgusting bathrooms? then, this is the place for you. The Edinburgh City Council should condemn this hotel until it is safe to occupy.

The staff at Sakura guest house did a great job of providing for me. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was in a different room off the hallway but was private, for my use only. Great value; I would stay here again.
