Not a bad place. Building and the bedroom I was in were furnished and in excellent condition. Winding up with an unhygienic ensuite bathroom was not a problem I faced. Bedrooms have windows, but the room I was in faced the back of an adjacent...More
When I checked in the staff was very friendly and helpful. Kept that way having 1000 questions for them. Well situated, breakfast was awesome.

Very nicely located in the so-called NewTown side of Edinburgh between Princess Street and George Street, this is a convenient nice place. A bit overpriced, but that is how things in Edinburgh seem to be. The first three days of our stay on the 4th...More

Big negative point
Check in was straight forward, staff were polite and helpful. However, when we saw our room we were very disappointed to say the least. It smelled musty and hadn't been aired in some time. It was dark and the furnishings were old and in dire...More
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured... More
I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured? Presumably the whole hotel is insured by the owner, but I don't think that will benefit a guest in any way. The rooms are reasonably secure in that they have keys (like all hotel rooms).
My basic feeling about this hotel is that it is quite overpriced for what it is (which is sort of a two-star hotel somehow awarded four stars), especially since there is no restaurant, no bar, no real lobby, and no charm. It is central, clean, inoffensive and has comfortable beds. The question is what you want to pay for that.
