    Superb

    Location was fantastic. Lovely fresh and clean Loved the fire on the tv!!!!

    Would have preferred a cooked breakfast. No soap, just shower gel Possibly a bin in the room as well as the bathroom?

    Superb

    Fantastic location - right in the heart of the city. Everything was clean and the breakfast was excellent value for money.

    Not much to dislike about this hotel. It's minimalist so you won't see things like a phone in the room, kettle, etc. but it's great value for money and spotless.

    Superb

    Very comfortable bed and efficient shower. Excellent location - room very quiet indeed.

    Very difficult to find your way about - everywhere looks the same. No instructions in room or corridor about what to do in the event of fire or what the alarm sounded like. Soap in bathroom was in little bottles - unhygienic to remove top each time and danger of knocking over if left undone.

    Superb

    Room was well designed and comfortable.

    Weird room numbering. My room 530 is on the 4th floor and I found several people wandering the halls looking for their rooms.

    Fabulous

    Close to bus from airport, close to attractions, shopping, restaurants etc, nice decor, lovely view from room over city , top floor, did have full length mirror as you enter room. Bed comfortable ,

    No tea and coffee in room, no soap only shower jel, bathroom very compact , major problem for me no in room safe.

    Wifi is out of order all night. No telephone inside room such that you cannot contact concierge in case of emergency. No water boiler inside room which is inconvenient as we are traveling at cold winter times.

    great location and staff were really helpful. room was lovely and bathroom was amazing

    Superb

    Location is excellent, especially if you arrive by train (only 1 minute from the train station) and very close to the Royal Mile (2 min walk up the hill). Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is brand new so everything is clean and tidy and has that 'new' smell. Bathroom is good quality and bath/shower towels are huge.

    Room is very compact. Not a lot of places to put your luggage. No coat hangers on the rail (might just be a teething issue as the hotel had just opened). Needs more hooks/rails in the bathroom to hang wet towels. The bed has two single duvets not one double - I was told that is how they do things in Germany... Not the most comfortable if you're sharing the bed with your partner.

    Great location - will stay here again on location alone. Central to everything and half a block from Airlink bus stop to/from airport. Also very clean and new.

    No closet or clothes hangers in our room.
