Excellent budget accommodation
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Basic accomodation but excellent value for money. I'd definitely stay again.

Fair 4.0
Dismal. Could do so much better. review 30th August 2018 Arrived evening of Thursday 23rd. Polite at front desk, but failed to give any essential information. Small window in room with curtain unusable, hanging off rail. Dark room, even in daylight. No tea or coffee condiments, no cups or glasses. Low wattage light bulbs in room area, so very difficult to see and could not read. No side light. Arrived back at 2 am from Edinburgh Fringe show and key card did not work in door to main building. Was let in after waking the night porter (rang the bell a number of times over five minutes). Went up to the room where key access was also denied. Returned to front desk where new key card was made after a 5 min wait. On giving our view the following morning I was told that a kitchen was available. We should have been told on arrival, the manager said, that the kitchen was down a corridor behind a blank unlabelled door & should have been labelled. The following morning the manager acknowleged inadequacies the previous night. Coming to the room and seeing the various defects this Portsburgh manager promised an email response. No email has been received.

Perfect location, rough around edges
My first time staying in uni halls and this was perfect in terms of location for the fringe. 2 mins from beautiful Grassmarket area and only 10-20 mins walk to any of the key venues and city attractions (plenty nearer). Good points - plenty of room for me - small double bed, desk and chair, wardrobe, small ensuite and access to good size kitchen area (nice to mix with others) plus common space in the basement. Good free wifi. Felt safe and everyone on reception very helpful. Worked perfectly as only in the room at breakfast and then not back until late. Negatives - small double bed against the wall which might not be ok for some couples, ensuite smelt terribly of urine - clean enough but not v pleasant, the rooms I had access to were a bit on the dark side and lacking decent size windows, carpets in the hall area very, very grubby and best not to wonder what some of the spillages were..! Don't think the rooms are particularly well insulated against noise but was lucky re room neighbours. Sounds like lots of negatives but actually this was perfect for me for the fringe - loved where it was plus a Sainsburys at end of the road which helped re self catering. I think it was great value for 4 nights in the middle of Edinburgh during the fringe - had access to lots of space, ensuite room, and supportive reception staff. Ultimately it was better than I expected!

Portsburgh Court stay for the Fringe
During term time, this is student accommodation. The room was spartan but comfortable and one of 5 in a "student flat". The private bathroom was a bonus as generally a couple of shower rooms are shared across the five bedrooms within the flat. I did not use the kitchen. The reception staff were very helpful. Considering the closeness to the centre of Edinburgh, the area was quiet in the evening and during the night. WiFi was included in the price of the room.
