      Very Good

      It’s really cost-effective. It only costs more than 200 yuan. It’s very inconvenient to check in with luggage. You need to walk long stairs. There is no elevator. There is no elevator. There is no porter to help. After all, the price is cheap, so this service is not required. I have enough luggage, everything else is fine, because it only costs more than 200 yuan, and it’s on the main street of Princes Street

        Great location, nice room, no complaints with services. However the fuse in a plug in our room went while I was charging my phone which broke my phone.

          There is a supermarket when you turn right when you go out. There is a lot of food nearby. It is 3 minutes from the train station entrance and the location is very convenient. Breakfast is a typical English breakfast with less variety, 11.9 pounds per person. My room is on the 6th floor. The room was opened with a 🔑 key, which is quite old. The toilet is quite large, but the bathtub is relatively small, and it always sticks to the shower curtain when taking a bath, which is more tasteless. Check in at the front desk to go up half of the stairs from the first floor, it will be more troublesome to get a large suitcase.

          The location is good, the hotel is too old, the bath water is hot when it is cold, and the water pressure is unstable, and the flow is flowing out, especially the bath products only have shampoo and shower gel, no conditioner, no bottled water If you need water, you have to pay. There is no fresh air, only radiators, single-story windows, no seals. You don't need to think about a particularly quiet sleep, and breakfast is OK.

            Excellent

            The biggest advantage is that the location is good. Just a few minutes walk from the train station, Prince Street is bustling, commercial street, bus supermarket hotel McDonald's KFC is next to the main attractions, the Royal Botanical Garden is a bus or taxi. Breakfast is classic European style, scrambled eggs, grilled mushrooms, fried potato pieces, tomato juice, soy beans, roasted tomatoes, sausage, bacon, these are suitable for Chinese hot dishes, the elderly at home to eat. There are also a few special flavor foods in Scotland. It is more appropriate to have a hotel breakfast with an elderly child. We stayed for two nights in a triple room, three single beds, the first night gave the room a good view, close to the street, and it was relatively clean. The room that I visited back in the highland tour was a bit smelly. I didn't have a towel and a towel. The window was close to the opposite office building. The hotel may be old, the corridor is very narrow, the smell of the carpet is not fresh enough, and the carpet in the room is also. Win at the location.
