Halcyon Hotel - Edinburgh
Terrible, worst mannered owner, avoid!
Avoid at all cost. Worst experience with an extremely rude owner!!! Shabby, drab, just the worst ever. We will never go here again and no recommendation. People who own and run this hotel need to go to business school to learn how to deal with customers. Nothing nice I can say at all.....

Good location near pubs, restaurants and sight seeing attractions of Edinburgh. Hotel has no lifts, also no television in room. Excellent breakfast, friendly hosts.

Cute, no frills.
The positives: There is something really fun about staying in a once estately, single family home converted into a hotel. I got the single bedroom in the back, which had this cute garden to look at out my window. The location was convenient and the staff I dealt with were sweet and helpful...if you asked the right questions when they were abailable, and breakfast included is always nice! The negatives: I don't understand when places aren't clear with what accommodation really is so one doesn't show up and be disappointed. The room was listed with its own private bathroom. what it didn't say was that the bathroom was down the hall, that everyone could use, with a door lock that is broken and an unclear method to turn on the hot water. You did get free wifi, but what wasn't said was how slow it was to use to where I just used my phone wifi. The staff was nice ...but if i didn't happen to ask about the shower myself I would've been shit out of luck 10 minutes later because they disappear into rooms. Overall a cute room, single bed for no frills, but the price you are paying is for location and probably best for students who don't care. The price should be about 15 quid cheaper even for a single room.

Great stay
The stay was great... Yummy breakfast, quiet room, with walking distance to the down town. My husband did wish we had a t.v. but we got along fine without one.
