Good and clean

Good clean room with a hearty breakfast. No lift so our second floor was bit hard with two suitcases. Transport at the door. It's not a high clas hotel in middle of town but great value.

Charming hotel with a good athmosphere.

Charming hotel with a good athmosphere. Quiet area, some traffic outside, but it didn`t bother me. I shared the bathroom (toilet also) with one other room, acceptable considering the price. If I return to Edinburgh, I may choose this hotel again.
