    Very good

    Low-budget hotel with great bed. Very clean unit. We loved excellent location, it was very close to all things we needed. Also, edinburgh old town was max 20 minutes walk to. Breakfast fee was 6.70 gbp per person per day. Good value, the place is reasonable base for a couple of nights.

    Just a bit noisy street.

    We appreciated great location.

    Had good sleep at the twin room. Being next to Ignite was nice, we had dinner there.

    We were very grateful to the Guards Hotel for giving us breakfast even after hours and letting us shower even though we arrived half an hour before check-out time due to a snag in our travels.

    The location is very good, just opposite to the Haymarket rail station and very close to the EICC.

    Very good hotel but you now need to bring the reception area upto the same stangard as the rooms; remember you only get one chance to make a first impression

    Not a complaint but curtains that close.

    Great

    We liked the easy distance from Princes Street. The use of the guards club for me being ex military was great as I met an old army friend who I served with in the Gordon Highlanders. I also met another ex soldier from the Argyles who I also new.We all had a great laugh over a few drinks.

    All was okay for us.

    Very good

    We did have a fab stay. Staff were lovely, Prada made our stay a talking point, as did the faulty window! It was an adventure from start to end! bed/bthrm were clean, breakfast smashing. Not a luxury spa hotel but would use again.

    We appreciated the upgrade, courtesy of Prada, however, I had someones used contact lenses and cup rings left on my bedside and my friend had a big pair of pants in a drawer! Again, we laughed!

    it was central

    tiny room, very old and out of date, shared bathroom and shower. Breakfast unedible, no fire escape for residents at the top floor. This hotel was probably one of the worst I have ever stayed in

    Very good

    The staff were friendly, it's great value for money and right in Edinburgh's West End near Haymarket station which was handy for me as I had an early morning train to catch

    It could do with a bit of sprucing up, but for the price I didn't expect the Hilton.

    Nice

    The hotel is easy walking distance to the city centre and there are plently of places to eat nearby

    Nice

    Proximity to the City Centre

    The rooms needed some redecoration, reminded me more of a B&B than a hotel. I had a deluxe room, but not sure how it could be termed deluxe.
