On arrival the hotel manager tried to sell a tour to us as soon as we walked through the door! Not even a friendly manner either when doing the hard sell! As we were only staying one night we told him 'no thanks' as we...More
Arrived at this hotel (what a joke) to be greeted with a disgusting run down hostel don't believe what they show on their website I will keep this review short as it could go on forever.
Bin had hair in it on arrival
Booked in here as convenient for work & Haymarket station. Room was ok but stained wallpaper & carpet. Toilet was unflushed and as for the toilet brush it was disgusting! However the shower cubicle clean with hot water. Bed was comfy with clean sheets.

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
