Great location for visiting family in the Edinburgh area. Convenient bus service into town from this location. Very quiet room considering the location on a main road. Breakfast top quality on the first day, not quite as good on day 2 but still good.

We stayed here as it was only £144 for 2 nights bed and breakfast during a busy weekend in Edinburgh when the rest of the hotels where charging through the roof. Although about a £9 taxi journey into the centre of Edinburgh it is a nice 30 minute walk in if you don't mind the exercise. Our room was comfortable...

They switch of the heating and you are unable to turn back on. It gets very cold at nighttime. They give you an electric heater My room had bad mold on the walls. They cancelled my room because I didn't check in "on time" even though I had prepaid.

Hi Clare, Thank you for taking the time to review our Edinburgh East Hotel. I am sorry you had a disappointing stay with us due to the temperature of your room and the issues with your room. We have controls on the wall which can increase and decrease the temperature of the room. I'm sorry if this was not working...

great location and fabulous staff. Rooms excellent and great nights sleep. We were visiting family and needed somewhere close by and this fits the bill. We travel up from London every 5-6 weeks and have now found the ideal place to stay overnight. Would definitely recommend to others, great value, nice surroundings and comfortable rooms

Excellent hotel. Value for money. Situated about 10 minutes on the bus from centre of Edinburgh and a 15 minute walk from Portobello. Best of both worlds. Staff friendly and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable. My only negative comment is that there are only double beds in the rooms whereas I would prefer a kingsize bed.

Rooms and reception staff were fantastic. Staff very helpful and rooms very clean. Easy access to city centre by bus. The bus stop is just outside of the hotel and is only a short journey to city centre. Will definitely return
