Good location and a good option as a low budget hotel. Breakfast options were great- lots to choose from.

2/10 Poor

We arrived and were told they were renovating rhe breakfast room and there was no provision for breakfast which was one of the reasons we booked. We.could have at least received a voucher for breakfadt at a voffee shop. We were told that we would be refunded foe the breakfast. Hope it happens! Our room was on the 5th floor but the elevator only went to the 4th floor so as retirees we had to lug our suitcases up ourselves.. There was no bath mats in the bath room. To top it all off the internet service was awful. First of all there was only 30 minutes alloted but it kept going off. Then you wrre required to pay $4,50 for afditional internet service. Whoever heard of such a thing in this day and age Small B&B's we stayed at had much better aervice. Would not recommend this Travellodge.

Some great, some awful
Great location, super friendly and helpful ppl behind the desk (they did in fact hold our luggage, which was a very pleasant surprise). Beds were quite uncomfortable, especially the rollaway for our son, pillows also flat and hard. Room was clean, but zero amenities aside from an attached shampoo/body soap on the wall. We are ok with budget hotels, but the beds have to at least be comfortable. One other small, weird issue: at the breakfast buffet they have the plates fully stacked up under heat lamps, with a little sign overhead you may or may not see saying may be hot. They aren’t hot they will give you a second degree burn on your hand. They half heartedly put some napkins also on top to the side to use to hold them, which may or may not be noticed. I saw them but it didn’t register that it was to hold my plate, as I’ve never needed it before. I don’t know about you but this is totally unacceptable to me, thank goodness I learned thi lesson the hard way and not my kid. It’s a super easy fix too: don’t stack the plates all the way to the top where the lights are, take out a ligh bulb or two, etc. I don’t think we would stay here again, but over all It was a decent experience. The staff watching our luggage made up for the discomfort and the burn on my hand.

Travelled with a friend for a birthday present. Staff were friendly and chatty throughout our two night stay. Our room was clean and a comfortable size for two people. Only complaint about room was that there was no iron or hairdryers provided in the room. Breakfast was nice but could possibley have more of a variety of food available at the breakfast bar. The hotel was located in an ideal area. Only a few minutes walk from St.Princes Street and the Royal Mile. Overall it was an enjoyable stay and I would definitely use this hotel again.

6/10 Good

close to everything but that's it.
pros: very close to trains, airport shuttle bus, Old town and shopping. The room was clean. Cons: wifi was free only for 30 minutes, after that you had to pay; no toiletries, missing towels. When we told reception that even the soap dispenser was empty she admitted that the dispenser was disgusting anyway. FAR too expensive for what we got.

4/10 Fair

Great location, but cuts too many corners
No wash towels, no tissues, no shampoo/conditioner, no bar soap but just a soap dispenser. Chemical-smelling, thin bathtowel, no bathmat. hair and mucus pieces on shower curtain.
