This HI Express is well located and within walking distance of the main attractions in Edinburgh. We stayed while the Festival was on so it was extremely expensive for one night, kind of soured the
enjoyment as it was so pricey particularly as the hotel was surrounded by scaffolding and there are major works all around this area.
Room was okay, a bit warm but covered the basics for a one night stay. Breakfast was very disappointing, not much choice and would have expected more fruit/veg to be available. Only fresh fruit was a very hard apple, the other was a fruit compote which looked like it came out of a tin. No veg choices in the hot section, I would have preferred some tomatoes, mushrooms and potatoes to be available. Competitor budget hotels provide a better breakfast so HI should take note. [Less]
