Comfy bed and pillows. Great location. Great size bathroom and shower with plenty of hot water. Street side rooms will get a lot of noise from the street and top floor rooms will get added noise from wind and rain. We were in a top floor room. There is no elevator so you will have to carry your bags up fights of stairs. Easy walking distance to main attractions and plenty of great food options near by.

Excellent location in Edinburgh. The room was quite clean, and the instructions for check in were clear and secure. Room was large and spacious. They were fixing the wifi when I stayed, which was a bit of an annoyance as it did not work. Other than that, I’d recommend this place to anyone visiting Edinburgh!
