Very good 8.0
Good value in a great location
Good value accommodation right in the heart of the Fringe. My room had a private kitchen, ideal for breakfast and snacks. On the downside, the floor was not too clean, and the pillows were very thin, but overall l was pleased with my choice, and despite warnings to the contrary, it was not noisy at all!

Poor 2.0
Do not recommend
Room dirty (cracked paint, footprints on the wall, dust), centric location but very noisy at night (clubs/pubs music, thin walls), unprofessional management and staff, overpriced, overall very little value for money.
