A fantastic stay which was certainly central.

A very clean hotel with lots of added quirky extras. I pod docking station in the room linked to additional speakers in the large en suite rainfall shower room. Tea cakes and filter coffee. A huge clean space and very restfull nights sleep. We loved it. What a special weekend.

Perfect location in the city, although next to a pub very quite at night.

Amazing value for money.

STAY Central

2 single beds instead of one double bed, poor considering the money I paid.

Great Location & Great Accomoation

I had not heard of STAY before but was very pleased with my room.

(I was upgraded which means extra brownie points already) The Room looked as it did in the pics and was very clean. The staff were very friendly when i booked in and checked out. Also nice little touches in the room with local guide booklet and some lovely Tunnocks tea cakes, better than the usual biscuits you get in somewhere generic.

Love stay central.

Fabulous helpful staff great location fantastic rooms. Came for a short break last year and was delighted to come back again with my daughter for a uni interview. So much to see and do in this beautiful city and the hotel is a real pleasure to come back to. Hope to visit again soon x

STAY Central

This is a lovely little hotel.

We stayed during the week and weren't disturbed by the pub at all. There might be some noise at weekends. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was very nice, modern and cosy interior. It was immaculately clean with crisp sheets and towels. There are a lot of nice extras like tea and cofffee making facilities with tea cakes, also bath and shower gel. The location is perfect - walking distance from town center, supermarkets, shops and restaurants. We had the continental breakfast in the pub which was ok but not great, probably worth going to one of the cafes nearby. I would definitely stay there again.

Got absolutely no sleep due to being directly above the bar.

Thumping music till 3am. Emailed manageress of hotel to complain but not received a reply. So disappointed as paid over 350 ponds for a room for one night !

Central location

While the hotel is indeed quite near central Edinburgh , it is not an easy walk from the station and involves some narrow alleys.

It is near a young persons pub called Three Sisters and very noisy.
