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 like wet room, if you've ever been in a caravan or boat. We got lucky,... More

Conveniently situated and clean hotel. Edinburgh city centre is only 900m.away. Very good breakfast. Reasonable price.(£69 for single room, £94 for double room.) Only drawback is that there is no lift.

The only thing good about this hotel is the location. Otherwise this hotel should be avoided at all costs. It tariff is steep compared to the facilities provided. Its an old hotel without a lift. The reception is located away from the entrance of the hotel and it is difficult to locate it. We were allotted a room on the... More

The title says it all. A good option for staying during the festival. The rooms are basic but fine. 5 minute too the Pleasance and 10 to the Royal Mile and Cowgate. We paid approx. £180 B&B and the Ibis down the road was showing £220 for room only. The breakfast (especially if your have the full Scottish) will set... More

Basic budget accommodation, however, location is great and price during the festival was not over the top. Rooms are compact and basic but clean. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is better than some I've had in four star hotels. Excellent buffet selection with hot selection cooked to order.

After I booked this hotel, I found out it's also a student residence of Univ. of Edinburgh. But my floor was only for tourist, so I couldn't see any students. It's cheap, clean and very basic hotel.

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.
