Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alvador Convenient location but poor sleep
Very convenient central location but I had an interrupted night's sleep because the room was too hot and the cleaning staff woke me in the morning by knocking loudly on the door despite the "Do Not Disturb" sign being displayed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marion D Excellent efficiency
Always expensive in Edinburgh during the festival but worth it for staying close to all the venues etc. especially as I needed to keep going back to hotel to warm up and dry out as it was so rainy. Lovely calm, efficient and polite staff at such a busy time. Please, please get some real coffee for breakfast! Had to go out to get a decent cup, such a shame.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wol5894 Expensive but worth it for a one-off.
I was in Edinburgh for a one-off event and this was one of the few places left which was relatively near to where I wanted to be. I expected it to cost a bit more, not only because of its location but also because it was Edinburgh Festival time.
On the whole it was a nice stay. My only minor complaint was the Great Room at breakfast - the tables were crowded so close together, it was a bit of a struggle to get around, especially with a loaded tray of food. The hotel claims to have accessible rooms but there is no way you could get a wheelchair or someone on crutches even near the breakfast bar because the aisles left between tables were so very narrow.
Given this is likely a very popular spot, the layout of the breakfast room really does need a rethink. Perhaps there should be an overspill into the extensive bar one floor down? Or perhaps reduce the number of tables?
Apart from that, it was a lovely stay.
