Great Stay in Edinbourgh Stay Central Hotel
Our stay was for 2 nights. Room was clean & roomy. Location was perfect... walking distance to museums, Royal Mile & Grass Market. It is directly connected to the Three Sisters Pub, which had a nice atmosphere. Despite being this close to a pub it was quiet in our room. Staff were exceptionally helpful & pleasant. I especially appreciated their assistance with checking in for my flight home to Canada. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Noisy but lovely rooms and brilliant staff.
Area very noisy with disco and bar area below. We had to complain the first night as we could not sleep for the noise, but the staff are excellent and moved us to a quieter room. Rooms are fab, but would not stay again due to noise. Excellent for younger groups looking for some nightlife though :)

Amazing hotel, staff, and location.
What an awesome experience. Upgraded to a 6 person suite with large bath and shower. Super friendly staff. Allowed us to check our luggage with them after we checked out, not many hotels do this. Fully serviced and restocked the complimentaries in the room each day. Possibly the best location in Edinburgh. 100% best hotel experience we have ever had in almost 20 years traveling to Europe.

Cute, modern hotel exceeded expectations
Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Cute modern room with little extra amenities and design features. Love the electric kettle, tea selection and yummy tea cakes/marshmallows! Would highly recommend
