The Place - Edinburgh
Bad experience
Checkin: easy and quick 24 hour Unfortunately I paid for 2 double beds and was only given one. Room condition: clean but very small/just room for a double bed Bathroom: great shower and very clean with amenities Bed: Worst mattress I’ve slept on since university dorm mattress. Sheets were scratchy and pillows had absolutely no padding at all. Very upset with bedding. Sleep: unable to sleep not just from bedding but giant skylight above bed. Able to pull shade, however, light was still managing to get in. Also, corridor doors would slam shut. Unable to sleep in. Was awake by 7am as everyone was going for breakfast and the doors were slamming.
