Each of our lovely bedrooms have large flat screen TV's, iPod docks, rain fall style showers to get lathered up in and lots of little extras you won't expect. Located in the heart of Edinburgh's eclectic Cowgate surrounding the famous lively Three Sisters bar, STAY Central is a short stroll from everywhere.

We were transferred due to COVID to Grassmarket Hotel instead of STAY central where I have stayed frequently before. Another great experience with value and service way beyond the price paid. Reception could not have been more helpful. The room had everything needed and more and the location was perfect. Thank you.

Stayed here for one night last week and can honestly say not one thing wrong with this place at all the addition of the bar adjoined to the hotel for a meal or drink was great. Rooms were lovely, bathrooms were very modern and clean and the addition of sky tv with all channels was great for chilling later on would recommend to anyone. Staff very pleasant on arrival and departure

I don't normally leave reviews but the Staff here were super helpful and really went out of their way to make sure we had a great Stag weekend (as the world imploded with coronavirus around us). Would hugely recommend! The rooms and bathrooms are a good size and clean (the showers are GREAT) and the location is AMAZING.

Everything was smooth and nice. the Staff is very friendly but so are all the Scots that I have encountered. I would have wished for the table during breakfast time to be more clean. Overall, I recommend this hotel. Easy to walk around everything you need or want to see. keep up the good work guys.

I booked the hotel after checking location & reviews. You just never know. I had a great location, easy to walk to everything! A clean wrong. Very friendly & attentive staff. And good food too (three sisters)!! The hotel wraps around a courtyard with nightlighty gatherings but it is not loud up in the rooms.
