Business trip

Great location, 5 mins from Princes Street and attractions. Plenty of bars/ restaurants nearby. Great room, parking is an issue as the hotel only has a few spaces to the rear and that was £10 per night. We were lucky enough to get one otherwise it's over the road at the OMNI centre and abit pricey. Great stay, would stay again.

Nice, modern, clean rooms. Excellent location and helpful staff. Parking limited but that's to be expected in a city centre. No street noise heard in room considering the location and current major road works in Edinburgh. Very pleased.
