The location of this hotel in Leith means that prices are reasonable while the city centre is easily accessed by the number 22 bus which runs approximately every ten minutes. Add to this the high standards of the hotel and you have an excellent combination.

As Priority club members we use a lot of different hotels in the IHG. The Express chain is simple and hotels vary alot around the country. We stayed here two nights recently and had a great time! This hotel is very convieniently situated, there is a very good shopping centre just over the road, plenty of restaurants and the new Royal yacht Britannia exhibition. If you want to go into the city use public transport as driving is horrendous!
We were welcomed as Priority club members and offered the choice of a free drink and snack at the bar or points. We opted for the drink. We were upgraded to a slightly larger room and had a reasonable view of the Scottish government buildings. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was busy, staff were hard pushed to keep up with demand, but did admirably. The breakfast selection was very good, plenty of choice including hot bacon, sausages, eggs, etc.
The staff on the front desk were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, this was in stark contrast to our previous nights stay at a Holiday Inn in Nottingham.

The property is at a convenient location on the waterfront - adjacent to the Royal Yacht Brittania. Although it takes a few minutes to get into the city center, it is not bad and the price break for being a few minutes out of the city is well worth it. Room was comfortable and well-appointed. Breakfast was not quite as complete as one might expect at an HIE property in the US, but not bad. Staff was attentive and courteous. The only issues I had with the room were internet and electrical outlets. Internet was a bit erratic and not as fast as would be expected or desired - but it worked. There was a real shortage of electrical outlets available in the room - only one or two and it was inadequate to even get mobile phones charged overnight. Otherwise, a very good place to stay.
