4/10 Fair

화장실이 좁다고 해서 걱정했으나 넓은 화잘실로 배정됨 좋은 건 한 순간/ 화장실 관리 상태가 실망적임/ 배수구 청소가 제대로 안되서 물이 내려가지 않고 고여서 나중에 하수구 냄새남/ 세면대에 물 때 청소도 제대로 안됨/ 객실 창문위 환풍기에는 먼지가 껴있음 이런 디테일을 놓치고 있어 실망했음

Central yet tucked away
Loved this budget+ hotel. Hoped off the train and into the hotel - it’s that central, but being tucked in a side street also made it quiet and away from the hustle bustle of a Princes St. Our room had no view but that was fine as we were just there to sleep. Room was compact but clean and comfortable with great use of space, huge TV and good sized bathroom. We didn’t have breakfast but used the bar on an evening, always quiet which was just what we wanted after a busy day. Hotel let us store our luggage when we checked out which was much appreciated, all staff we came into contact with were helpful and welcoming. This will no be our go to hotel when we are visiting Edinburgh
