Basic Student accommodation
This is very basic student halls of residence accommodation over an hour's bus ride from Edinburgh, advertised as Edinburgh "hotel", but located in Musselburgh Esat Lothian, the next County.
The "double" rooms and bed are medium sized at best. there is no bathroom, just a wet cupboard that you squeeze into, the shower space is too small with a push button that is non-adjustable and only cold water in shower, lukewarm water in basin. There are six "double rooms" in a main corridor door that share a common kitchen room with facilities. I visited for 1 night only during Edinburgh Festival August 2015. for £88 a night for a "double" room it is expensive because of location and no Hot Water, more like a slightly comfortable Prison Block without Hot Water!!
Clean and quiet, good value
QMU has been my go-to place for a couple of years now when I decided last minute to go to the Edinburgh Fringe.
Reception staff are super-friendly and I've always had a spacious, clean, quiet room with one of those funny shower cubicles/ pods (not so spacious). QMU is just a couple of minutes by train from Edinburgh Waverley and then another few minutes walk from Musselburgh station. That's much less of a drag than it seems, except on Sunday morning when the first train into town isn't until mid-day. The bus alternative is tediously slow.
