STAY Central

This accommodation is like an upmarket backpackers.

Wasn't ideal for me as was in Edinburgh on business and hotel overlooks a noisy courtyard full of students singing karaoke outside (their student bar is on the other side of the courtyard). The three sisters bar which it adjoins is also open until 5am on a Thursday which isn't ideal when you have to be up early for meetings. Other than that the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious (although I had two single beds and a double bed for just myself!). I'd stay again if I was on a hen do or a night out but not for business purposes.

It was fun and funky. The bath sheets were so so big.

Thought we might have made a mistake to have booked this hotel, but no mistake.

It was great and the staff were amazing. Positioned at the side of a pub which rocks but the rooms were quiet, the breakfast amazing. It was a great experience for a couple of old wrinklies.
