Reasonably priced, great location, superb breakfast, personable and helpful staff, and it has a small but clean work out room. Beautiful park nearby, close to museum, restaurants, train station ( walking distance) Edinburgh castle, St.Gilles cathedral, university..perfect in all aspects.

Thankfully, Paul, at the front desk, was able to get us to the hotel in our car (there is no hotel parking). It was difficult to find this hotel but worth it. The rooms have kitchens and comfy seating and they offer a fabulous breakfast buffet. On top of this, it is across the street from the college and walking...

I stayed here for 1 night on business - I like having a kitchenette as it gives the option of eating in, if the mood takes you, and with a Sainburys just around the corner a definite possibility. However, on this occasion I went out to a nearby restaurant (Nanyang) which was well worth the effort. The room was good...

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
