              • Couple
                6.2

                We liked the fact it was reasonably quiet and management dealt with a disruptive group (guess it was a stag party) professionally and quickly. The room was equipped adequately for two people.

                This is not a specific complaint but we did not have the linen and towels changed on the 3rd day of our stay as expected. Asked upon our return after our day out and had to do so again a few hours later. Finally received towels late at night. :-( ....... that small situation took away from the experience but would still go back there.

                The room was so cosy and very modern looking. It had just the right facilities and there was no curfew.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Clean, 24h reception, good enough location

                No free wi fi!!!! Bed is not made, towels not changed. Expansive for the services it offers but a safe choice.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Very comfortable room. Good location, about 15 minutes walk from the castle. En-suite cooking facilities a bonus.

                No tea/coffee/milk provided, so bring your own! I also thought it was a bit sneaky charging £3 per bag to hold our bags, when all other hotels do this for free.

              • Couple
                5.0

                Decent sized room, great to have fridge and kitchenette

                Limited kitchen equipment (no decent sized bowls for example), and an unusual inventory check early in the morning that we were due to check out. Quite odd getting woken up by people letting themselves into your room and checking stuff!

              • Couple
                7.4

                clean, good location, fantastic shower

                The doors slam very loud and it was annoying having students in the toom next door making a lot of noise.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Location was perfect : 10 minutes walking from city center, 3 minutes walking from airport bus stop. The rooms, furnitures etc. are all news, everthing is very clean.

                A bit expensive but it's Edinbourg...

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Staff were welcoming and friendly, the flat was spotlessly clean and the area quiet at night. All sights were a 15 minute walk away.

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Being close to Princes Street, the castle, the Royal Mile etc. Being able to eat in and save money on expensive restaurant meals. I recommend the Shakespeare Bar next to the Usher Hall. Good food at reasonable prices.

                Yhe duvet heated up so much that my legs kept coming out in a heat rash at night and my husband was lying in a damp pool each morning. Yet if we threw it off we bacame chilled. A light blanket in summer would be great.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Friendly staff on arrival, lovely clean room and very good price

                No television

              • Group of friends
                5.0

                The facilities were brand new, including the kitchen utensils.

                The fact that the 2 rooms my family and I occupied were never cleaned during our 3 nights stay. The lack of efficiency of the reception staff - nobody answers the phone and dispite seeing queues, staff still remained talking at the back without caring too much (there was not a single time when I haven't seen a queue in front of the reception). Reason why I only complained (and obviously asked for some kind of compensation) during the check-out. Who wants to be in a queue after having spent the entire day exploring the city? Manager with poor managerial skills - does not supervise the work of the housekeepings and does not seem interested in keeping her commitments with the hotel guests (she promised to write me an email, on the same day of my leaving, regarding my complaint but never did).

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Value for money,

                Have to cook my breakfast. Like to be catered for my away from home. But I knew when I booked that I will have to do it, but I still moan in the morning.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                I thought staff were very helpfull and freindly,also room was very good and clean,also within good distance from centre and lots of places toeat.would defo go there again.

              • Couple
                10.0

                It was an amazing place to stay for a few days while visiting the city. The room was very clean and self-contained. All the facilities were great and the staff was friendly and helpful.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                I think overall is good. In terms of location to tourist attractions, cleaniness, design of the room, space and staffs... One good thing about it (studio) they have a mini kitchen with complete set of cooking utensils except for ingredients are available which are suitable for those who has budgets in terms of food whereby you could just grab a quick packed meal in Tesco (which is down the road) and heat up in the micro or you could jst buy pasta to cook. Hope that you guys could maintained that!!!! Keep the good work....

                I would not say is dislike but would like to give suggestion (i) When I read from the website, it stated that we can leave our baggage for free of charged. However, I actually have placed my luggage with the receptionist after I check out for a couple of hours but they charged me for 6 pounds (although is not much). So would prefer if you could stated slightly clearly in the website in order to avoid misunderstanding. (ii) I would suggest that if Smart at IQ confirmed the booking, it would be best if they could send them the guide on how to get there from airport. I took the airlink from airport and stop at haymarket. With the burden of the luggage bag I have to walk quite a distance as compared to taking Lothian bus and stop right down the road of Groove Street.
