Good value modern accommodation
Rooms are modern, clean and adequate at a reasonable price. Not too far from the centre to walk, but with a good bus service. There are a number of shops and bars nearby.

Good 6.0
Bijou but reasonable
The bed is small - more like a large single or a very small double. The toilet/shower unit makes a racket for 10 mins after being used. Not great for the middle of the night pee. It is good value for Edinburgh in August during the festival and encourages you to stay out and see the festival.
A, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
great location/layout and service. Decent comfort
Great location, check in and room layout so overall a great stay. A couple of things could make it better - a better mattress and for the fan in the bathroom to not turn on automatically and be so loud! Slightly annoying in the middle of the night... Not going to get much better in this location during the festival for this price though!

Basic but convenient for centre.
Room was quite small but clean. Reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Basic accommodation but clean and comfortable
Accommodation for the Fringe Festival. About half an walk from the main action which I was happy with. Basic en-suite student room which was clean and comfortable. It’s too much too expensive for what it is but that’s because it’s the Fringe and unfortunately all the accommodation in Edinburgh whacks the prices up.

So good I stayed again
I loved my first stay because it's quiet. The lack of TVs really helps this. I think all hotels should remove their TVs. Once again the reception staff were utterly brilliant. I've been all over the world and stayed in expensive hotels but the hardworking Beavers at Beaverbank reception are THE BEST anywhere. Please realise they are university students so don't "look down" on them just because they're doing a low-paid job. They are smart, witty, chatty, friendly, sympathetic and hugely helpful. They're likely better educated than most of the guests. Your typical hotel receptionist here may well be doing a masters degree in science and doing it in a foreign language because she's not a native English speaker even though you can't tell because her English is that good. Be aware that Block 17 is tropically hot inside so choose your holiday sleeping clothes appropriately and you'll be ok. Reception can lend you a fan. For safety reasons the windows only open a little way. This is to discourage suicide in students because unfortunately the high pressure of university study takes its toll. It's definitely not all drinking beer. As it's student halls the facilities are basic but it's just somewhere to sleep and shower and heat some simple food. Your main holiday lies outside the hotel not in your room. If there is a fault, report it politely and the team will do their utmost for you. What more could you want? If your mattress is lumpy turn it round and turn it over.

Pleasantly quiet and much better than 5* service
The reception staff are the best worldwide. I've stayed in mega-expensive super-starred hotels but the level of help from the hard-working Beavers at Beaverbank reception is far superior. And you get a less snobby and more considerate type of guest here too which is important because of the apartment system. It's a student halls of residence so it's not the cracked marble bathrooms, taps with flaked-off gold and beds big enough for a bus load that you get in "posh" hotels. You get a study bedroom and a proper kitchen with basic equipment provided. This is useful for simple cooking or reheating food. You can save a fortune by not dining out, though Edinburgh has some excellent eateries. Because it's not a posh place your flatmates will probably be friendly instead of ignorant and they aren't going to disturb you with a TV because there aren't any. The total lack of TVs is the best bit. Sleep and shower here; entertain yourself elsewhere. If your idea of a holiday is watching TV, you're doing it wrong. Instead of complaining about the lumpy mattress, turn it over and turn it round 180 degrees. See, it's better already. Due to the high turnover of guests, the room equipment gets a hammering. So if something isn't right with your room, don't blame the lovely receptionists but the previous guests for not reporting the faults. If you do find something wrong, tell reception and they do get things fixed. They will go to extraordinary lengths to help you if you are polite.
