      Not bad, it was uncomfortable to stay in Edinburgh, this hotel is okay. (Witchery is fooled, who lives and who is aggrieved)

        This home can kill a lot from the façade. The location is quite good, right in the city center. Walking distance to the castle, next to the train station, the hotel facilities are also very good, the space is also very satisfied

        The location is very good, the train station elevator is just across the road. Upgraded the room for free, the breakfast was delicious, the service was attentive, there was floor heating, and the shampoo was unexpectedly useful! The most satisfying residence in the UK. I went to Aunt Rowling's room to check in. Unfortunately, someone moved in ...

        It should be the best hotel in Edinburgh, it is deserved to be famous, the train station is out, the main city can go anywhere, 552 is the room where JK Rowling lived. It's hard to decide. Everything else is great. I saw the fireworks at the closing of the Edinburgh Festival.

        The location and service were superb. I went out of the train station on the right hand side. I was traveling with my children free of charge. The environment was very good and suitable for staying. The shortcoming was the lack of a hot water bottle. provide!
