The staff were friendly and helpful and the room/building was clean. The building is ideally placed only being a 10min walk to centre or Waverley station and 5 minutes from the royal mile......BUT the room was dated, very small and had an awful bathroom!
I have just returned from a night's stay here and I was pleasantly surprised after reading some of the reviews.
The staff are really welcoming and helpful and the room was spotless. There is a kettle and a good amount of tea and coffee. The...More
... The website I booked through didn't mention anywhere that the rooms are in a University Student Halls of Residence. Which - to be honest - would have made me think twice about booking.
As I said, the location is five mins from the old...More
This hotel (a former student accommodation) is well situated in a quiet part of the city, but not too far from the centre. I stayed in a cramped room on the third floor - no elevator. The tiniest bathroom I have ever seen, it was...More
This is University style accommodation with a double bed. That said they provided all of the facilities you might expect, bar a decent bathroom. So wifi, tea/coffee, TV, towels, hair drier etc were provided but I think the bathroom is best described as a cabin...More

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.
