    Breakfast very good, many choices. Room size good.

    I stayed for a while and lost weight walking to the city centre which is 20-25 mins walk from the accommodation. But you can take the bus if you are willing to wait.

    Very excellent for the low price of the rooms per night. Very close to city center, about 20 min walk.

    A great base from which to explore Edinburgh. Campus was a pleasant environment and the availability of parking was a real plus.

    This is at a university, so the room looks like a dorm room. We were there during the holidays so it wasn't too busy. Good, clean and basic.

  • Single

    It was cheap, about half the price of the next best option. Reasonable location, good selection at breakfast.

    The broken toilet seat.

    the best was breakfast: really really good, with wide choice; location is also ok: within walking distance (25 min) from the center

    room was not very clean, but I guess for the price it is ok

    If you want just a cheap clean room in a good location this is ideal. The inclusive breakfast is 5 star.

  • Couple

    The room was nice but the walls were very thin so you could easily be disturbed by other guests walking and talking at the corridor. The breakfast was very good and an eat as much as you can buffet with a big choice of food and drinks.

  • Single

    Very good breakfast. Room was fine. Good location close to city centre, Salisbury Crags and Holyrood Park etc.

    All the blocks look the same and there should really be better sign posts - they were very poor. Maybe another couple of showers as well.

  • Single

    The staff was very helpful. The buffet type (free) breakfast had a huge choice, which was great given the price of the stay (£35 for 1 night).

    No ensuite services available. However the shared services were clean. Of course it must be considered that normally this is not a hotel. In fact this is a students accommodation which during holiday periods (I.E. when students are away) offers their rooms and services to customers.

    staff, food, cleanliness, value for money, place

  • Couple

    Very nice breakfast, close to the center (the bus station was only 5 minutes away), the price was quite good. We had always hot water and the room was very hot even though it was snowing outside.

    The cleaning of the rooms and especially of the toilets. They should put seperately the customers and the students. Not in the same hallway.

  • Group of friends

    Parking was available at no extra cost, although on the website it is stated that no parking is available,

    We got there late at night and checked in at the Reception Center. Very easy. Rooms are basic dorm rooms. My husband thought the bed was too firm, I thought it was just right. We were a little worried about noise level, but there was no problem at all! Staff very friendly. Short walk to the Royal Mile. If you come out the main entrance and turn right, Arthur's Seat is just in front of you. Breakfast was a buffet and we had no problem finding something that we liked every morning. Pancakes go very fast. We will for sure use this hotel again!

    We thought we had read here that dinner was every night for 12 pounds but the one night we were too exhausted to eat out and came back, it was not open. It was Easter though so that might have been the reason. I would just check with the reception center on check-in to see if there are any night they are not serving dinner.
