        Breakfast was very good. I walked out of Edinburgh Station to the hotel and just enjoyed the street view and shops. After breakfast, I went to Karl Hill and walked there. The big handsome guy at the front desk is amazing!

        Very Good

        Overall better. The hotel is clean, the bed in my room is small, and there are 2 rooms separated by a suite. It is strange to have a door in the room, a little dissatisfied. The hotel is very convenient to go to the scenic area. Because the price is not expensive, it is considered a cost-effective hotel. The hotel's breakfast is included and the quality is very high. Although the restaurant is small, the food prepared is very good. In addition, I travel while working, and their desk is the most comfortable for my trip to the UK.

        Outstanding

        Breakfast is quite satisfactory, that is, those bread, milk bread, bacon sausage, eggs and so on. The room is small, and it is a bit difficult to open two boxes at the same time. It is also not to put toiletries, the mattress is soft, and the elevator needs to be swiped. It is clean, hygienic, safe and quiet. Walk for 10 minutes from the train station, to the castle, Calton Hill is closer, you have to walk, the weather is changeable, the sun in the morning, it will rain in the afternoon, go out to prepare an umbrella. The streets are full of scenery, suitable for taking pictures. The ancient buildings are well preserved and have English characteristics.
