Great location, clean neat hotel
The standard room is small, but quite clean and had a everywhere you will need. But more charging points should be provided, if you have more than 2 devices that need to be charged than you have to rotate. The second time we stayed there , the room was much bigger and facing the city, which was rather nice!

Good hotel in good location
The hotel was surprisingly roomy with complimentary tea and coffee. There were plenty of power points or sockets but located at odd places eg. there was no socket at the tea table where you need to boil water in the kettle. The decor was basic but new and modern. The room was very clean and tidy. The bathroom was a tad small. There was no bathtub, just shower. Staff was friendly and helpful. No complimentary breakfast. Free wifi though connectivity had a little problem at times. There's an onsite bar and eatery.The location was fantastic, right outside the train station and within walking distance to the Royal Mile and other attractions. Overall it's a good stay.

Not what I hoped for
Neutral review as we didn't actually get to stay at the hotel as they had overbooked rooms so we ended up at the Ibis. Reception looked nice!

Great central location
Stayed here for one night for a work night out in Edinburgh as I live in Glasgow. Was ideal location and good price. You can also use the Waverly long stay car park as you get a 20% discount through this hotel.
